Right now, I'm reading:
The Power of the Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

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?
True Romance , Quentin Tarantino

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Listen, think, choose, learn, love, progress

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
I can't choose just one. The others might get jealous.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Just to have one being, who would be able to see the art in my mess would make me grateful forever.
