Right now, I'm reading:
2 books. one is some percy jackson book #2, and the other is the 7 habits of teens or something like that.

My favorite story of all time is:
a lot of books. but one of my favorite series is the secret series.

In bed I like to read:
exciting, adventurous, and cool books. but if they are boring i will fall asleep.

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?
what i ate and did in the past...

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
don't make any mistakes you'll regret!!!!!!!

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
The person who created Smith or some popular, famous person, like JB or Selena Gomez
