Six Word Memoirs

Right now, I'm reading:
5 of the 6 -word memoir books. trying to get past Genesis in the Bible to figure out what I believe. and 2 other random memoirs i discovered.

My favorite story of all time is:

In bed I like to read:

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?
yelling.i never wanted to be, never was, a yeller. until now.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
none of it matter one bit.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
a sappy bright eyes song. ".. i swear i was born right in that doorway.."

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
someone who understands, enjoys, and wants to make my dreams come true.
