Alright. I dunno what to write for here. This is me. These are my songs. I like writing songs. I've been doing it since before I can remember. Sometimes I submit. Sometimes I don't.
I like to drive fast. I like to turn up my radio and drown out the sounds of the world.
I like to dye my hair. I get tired of things after a while.
I have trouble paying attention and my mind jumps around a lot.
I like to read.
I love to sing. I never stop.
I can think of a song to match pretty much anything someone says.
I feel like my parents are overprotective and sometimes I wish they would just stop asking questions and let me figure things out for myself.
I'm smart enough to be in all honors classes but I like just coasting by and doing what I want.
Winter is my favorite season.
The ocean is beautiful but it scares me.
Sometimes I arrogantly wonder how come people who aren't as good as me have more page views and watchers than I do. I still wonder this. maybe they're nicer.
I'm a huge flirt and sometimes it gets me in trouble.
My little brother means the world to me.
I'm daddy's girl.
I like to act crazy.
I fall down a lot.
I come up with some of the best ideas but then I can't do them because it's illegal.
I almost always have good dreams.
I love movies.
I'm ridiculously paranoid.
I'm a hopeless romantic.
I day dream.
I'm a dreamer in general.
I can love with all my heart.
Break my heart and it takes me years to recover.
I have anger management problems.
It makes me happy when people say I hit like a boy.
I like planning parties.
I'm always worried no one likes me.
I'm not happy with myself.
I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never be who I want to be.

I'm not looking for drama. And I'm not looking for critique unless I ask for it. I write for the sake of writing. I write to keep myself from causing harm. I write because I write, for no one else's benefit but mine. So to recap: NO CRITIQUE UNLESS I SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR IT. I don't want to know how to make my work better. I like to see how I improve on my own.

Here are my views on people who submit their things to twenty thousand groups (it makes me want to murder them.)poke-me-if-you-dare.deviantart…

And lastly I'll say this: I am picky about what I favorite, but I rarely ever comment. If I have commented, you better feel pretty fucking special.

So here's to the dreamers, cause real life is shit, and dreams are all we have.
(This is an excerpt from one of the letters that I've been writing to my friend in Basic Training. I try to keep him thinking. I don't want all his personality and thoughts to get squashed out of him. I thought this would be an interesting excerpt to post here.)

I start with the notion: What is love? It's a question I've been asking myself a lot lately. 
    
Is it just an attachment we form by spending a lot of time with someone who is a great person? Is it something we decide? How does one know if they are in love? And why is it so easy to determine whether or not we love our friends but not our significant others?

I feel like I'm both afraid of love and lack of love at the same time. Then again, I'm also afraid of the area in between the two. Why is a thing that's supposed to be so wonderful so scary? I'm terrified.

I'm afraid of not loving enough. I'm afraid of being the one that loves too much. I'm afraid of not feeling anything. I'm afraid of not being able to tell if I do feel anything. Especially the last one.

What does love feel like? I want to say it, but I am afraid that I'd be wrong or lying without realizing it.

The only time that I have ever felt like I knew I was in love was when I found out that they didn't love me back. The pain told me that it was love. I only know how to tell love through pain, and that scares me. It scares me that I won't know that I'm in love until I've already lost it. 

So I pose to you this question because maybe you know: What is love? How do we find it? How do we recognize it? How do we keep it? Is love an actual presence, or do we think it up in our minds? Is it something we can physically feel?
