Right now, I'm reading:
Anything I can get my hands on.

My favorite story of all time is:
My own. Because if I don't find a way to love it, then I'm not really living a life worth having.

In bed I like to read:
Tamora Pierce. Stephanie Meyer. Jacqueline Carey. Kristin Britian. J.K. Rowling. Anne McCaffery. Tolkien. Holly Black. Neil Gaiman. I read an absurd amount.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
questionablecontent.net fanfiction.net and a series of other things, depending on my mood.

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?
A series of chaotic events, a habit of crisis, and an unfortunate flair for the worst luck ever known to mankind.
