Right now, I'm reading:
I read new stuff constantly. I don't have the time or energy to keep this up to date ;)

My favorite story of all time is:
A story my dad made up when I was a kid. It's called "The Princess and the Warlord." I still remember it and sometimes ask him to tell it to me.

In bed I like to read:
I read all kinds of stuff: mostly fiction books.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Postsecret, Urbis, and weread.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Wanting what I can't have.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't just wait. Make life adventurous.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
How about I just wish that the soundtrack of my life could be as amazing and moving as the LOTR score?

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Someone who feels the same way.
