Right now, I'm reading:
This and that. A bit of everything.

My favorite story of all time is:
Probably the story of the phantom of the opera (Erik). Not necessarily the original book by Gaston Leroux but the story of him in general. I find the character very intriguing.

In bed I like to read:
Whatever book I'm devouring at the moment. Yes, I eat the books! I also like to make jokes that aren't funny.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Wattpad, random blog here and there, Teen Ink...

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?
Someone telling me they "had a rough day".

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't forget to breathe, love, learn.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Heart on my sleeve - Idina Menzel

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Some of my friends. I want them to understand some of my feelings because I otherwise find it difficult to express them and some of them do actually care. Only if they want to understand of course. Some of this is more personal than I'm willing to share, anyway.
