I’m a teen!! With that I also claim to be a lover of film, and a Harry Potter enthusiast. I am a writer—of music, poetry, and short stories—a reader—of things mysterious and eerie, cheesy and romantic, horrifying and lovely—and a newly discovered coffee addict (usually adding soy milk, extra sugar, and 2 pumps of vanilla syrup). I love to dance and have recently taken a job as a teacher; hip hop is my favorite style. Nietzsche once said that without music life would be a mistake; I agree. I play the trumpet, guitar, piano, and I dabble with singing. I try to stay positive, to propel love and compassion to the people around me, and to always forgive. I enjoy photography and travel and I dream of someday combining these two—exploring the world and capturing it on a camera (how cool might that be). The new people and places I encounter tend to bring remarkable excitement into my life, and I always appreciate the experience of trying something new.
