About me

I am:

I can't imagine life without:
My sketchbook
I am completely indifferent to:
Things I don’t know about
I sometimes pretend to:
Think when I’m not really thinking
The best breakfast is:
When someone else buys you pancakes, two eggs over easy, bacon, fresh squeezed orange juice and a side of whole wheat toast
My favorite Tuesday outfit:
Is pretty much the same as my Wednesday outfit
Song stuck in my head:
Exit Music (From a Film) - from Radiohead’s OK Computer
Who are you Haiku:
I like pictures more

pretty stupid, yup

The Truth

Do you fall in love easily?
Yes and No
Do you believe in revenge?
Yes, don’t you?
Would you do something if you couldn't tell anyone?
Don’t we all do this?
Should you really keep your friends close and your enemies closer?
So I hear
Do you find the need to clean your room before you do your homework?
Depends on how bad the homework is
Is Amanda telling the truth?
A secret is only a secret if no one knows.
The end justifies the means.
Stealing is always wrong.
Pink goes with everything.
Friendship is forever.
Amanda is still in Orion.
I know why Amanda came here.

My thoughts on Amanda

Amanda is…
She’s also…
a saint, my saviour, a freak, a complete fake, my hero, the real deal, original, brilliant, affected, a seer, visionary, an artist, gifted, kind, robin hood, a loner, courageous, brave, beautiful, weird, bizarre, wild, from another planet, crazy, divine, amazing, creepy, gorgeous, a chameleon, hypnotic, totally psycho, bewitching, intense, enchanting, totally hiding something, for real, vintage fabulous, from another realm, dangerous, diabolical, my friend, can’t be trusted, the most trusted, my adventure, the best thing that ever happened to me, a fake, a liar
Her own best work of fiction:
