Right now, I'm reading:
Re-reading all of my favorite book series to make my senior goal: I have already re-read hunger games, harry potter, and song of the lioness books, now onto Narnia and the Inheritance Cycle

My favorite story of all time is:
3 Billy Goats Gruff and the very hungry catipillar

In bed I like to read:
whatever I have from the library and write my own book

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?
Homework isn't hard, that's not why I don't do it. I don't do it because it takes up a lot of time and I just don't like spending that much time on it. . .

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
procrastination wastes more time than save

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
I would say my mom, but then I would probably get into a ton of trouble, so probably my grandfather, so he can see my humor, and know how I'm feeling all the time
