Right now, I'm reading:
I'm writing mostly but I dabble in and out of books about spirituality, im open to religon but not the belief structure they are based off of. That being beliefs are dangerous and unpredictable

My favorite story of all time is:
Not to be arrogant but I am crafting my own "Mona Lisa" so to speak, if I had to pick one it would probably be the story line in the videogame Final Fantasy X

In bed I like to read:
Either horror (I love the adrenaline rush) or fantasy to set my mind free as I fall asleep

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Oh wow, to many to list, they are all so inspiring and important to me, but if I had to pick one I would have to say Amazon kindle

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?
Ha, well I think I am quite unique so my story has yet to be told

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
the truth will set you free

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Ooohh not a song but an entire album Tool - Lateralus

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Not to sound cliche but mr. James Cameron, I love his style of creativity his implements into his cinematic rollercoasters
