I’m a 26-year-old who’s really a big kid at heart. I like the simple things in life & try to live as simply as I can. I am a bit spoiled, but who isn’t? I like reading, poetry, video games, and other stuff I can’t think of right now.
A few of my favorite things:
favorite books: The Alchemist, A Painted House, To Kill a Mockingbird, Saving Fish from Drowning, The Red Tent, Red Riding Hood, Room, Harry Potter books, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Divergent, Insurgent
favorite quotes: ”I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.” —Charlotte Bronte
“To be nobody but yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” —E.E. Cummings
“Insist on yourself. Never Imitate.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it political? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
favorite TV shows: The Golden Girls, 30 Rock, Criminal Minds, Breakout Kings & pretty much any version of Law & Order with SVU & Criminal Intent being my favs. I also like several cartoons including: Scooby Doo, Spongebob Squarepants, Johnny Test, The Amazing World of Gumball & Adventure Time
