Right now, I'm reading:
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins in the Hunger Games series. Righteous.

My favorite story of all time is:
Oh man. Toughy. Probably the fact that I read whatever I can get my hands on doesn't help. That's why I couldn't work at a book store or library. That's what I'd spend my time and money on. I'm the ultimate book worm. But I love the story on the homepage on TWLOHA. It's awesome. About that 19 year old girl. It moved me to joining up. To writing what I feel to see if it can make a difference in others lives.

In bed I like to read:
Persuasion by Jane Austen. Actually right now I am reading the Hunger Games series. Good stuff. Or Colleen Coble books. Ah maz ing. And Mary Higgins Clark mysteries.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Besides this, I read stories on mormon.com and lds.org. So inspirational. This is pretty cool stuff.

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?
Tripping over everything. The bruises all over my legs from the tripping. Thinking I am doing everything right when I start ranting on about how tired I am and the amount of work that goes into college classes and such. Listening to folk and screamo. Never getting away with anything! You know how some people can just cheat on a test or quickly fix their hair before they see a cute guy? Not me. He has to look over mid-fix and gives me that, "What a spaz" look. I get that look a lot. I love to sing. Think I'm good at it too but I haven't done a whole lot about it. Maybe youtube can help. So that's me in a nutshell. And I'm mormon. But a cool one who follows the rules but is free spirited and accepting. I love meeting new people. I also sing opera besides normal singing. I love the outdoors and exercising. Taking long walks outside on Sundays with my mom. She and I talk about pretty much everything because she is the coolest ever. I have three brothers and no sisters so that was fun growing up. Means, I play halo and know pretty much everything about Star Trek, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. So I call myself a dork optimist. I don't let others get me down. Es todo.
