I will read anything!
I will take reading requests.
But I only read one chapter/piece of work.
Unless I like it of course. haha
Also, I tend to dedicate days to reading and some to writing and some days I just don't give a shit.
So, I probably won't get to your book right away.
But I will read it, eventually (if I like it).
It will just take time.
So don't think I don't care if I don't leave a message or like it or whatever.
I just am not in the mood for reading, or my eyes really hurt.
So don't get discouraged!
HI, MY NAME IS AMANDA! SUCK A TRAGIC NAME, SO COMMON!!!!
I'm a juinior in highschool. Incredibly behind, and have to go to a "special" school to get more credits.
But it's not like I'm stupid, on the contrary, I am freaking super smart! I just have an especially stupid truancy issue...
I plan to become an Architect when I'm older. Which is a little bit crazy, because I SUCK at math!
But architecture (especially the Russian kind!) inspires me so, so, so much!
Oh wow, I just got the hiccups... haha Here are some examples of said architecture:
And of course I just totally love everything Russian! Who wouldn't?
A couple of slightly random pictures (yeah, I know I could use words, but I like photography too) that describe me a little bit more in detail.
I absolutely love archery! I love the feeling of having the power to do something so horrible, but not doing it. It makes you feel insanely strong. Even if it's only a 30 lb bow.
I adore my guitar. It's addicting to create something so beautiful that brings joy to others.
Like I've said, I love photography. Whenever I have a camera with me, I click ate everything.
I'm not great at it, but I know what it takes to get a great shot.
I also love to dance-particularly ballet and contemporary.
I can do anything when I dance.
According to this last picture, I freaking love birds. And this is totally true. In fact I'm going to get a tattoo of them flying from my shoulder bone down. I also want a verticle labret. :) (The chick with the red lips has the labret!)
These are the dogs I hope to one day own: King Cavalier Charles Spaniel, Saint Bernard, and an Akita. They're such great dogs.
And these are just pictures of fantastically cute animals. Including cats and hedgehogs!!!
I freaking adore music.
I love anything Indy/folk with good voices.
Here are some good examples:
The Civil Wars
The Swell Season
Mumford and Sons
I also like really weird, cool music.
Here, are some examples:
Foster The People
Shiny Toy Guns
I also really love rock/alternative.
Here are some of my favorites:
The White Stripes
Three Days Grace
The Spill Canvas
Escape the Fate
Camera Can't Lie
I also like classic sounding music. Like, old sounding?
Haha, here are a few examples:
Dustin O'halloran (you HAVE to check him out!)
Jane Monheit (such a beautiful voice)
(so obviously some of those were actually old, but whatevs.)
Time to get serious.
This is probably the most crucial thing you will learn about me.
You'll probably think I'm crazy for sharing it, but if you got this far, then you must think I'm interesting enough.
And you deserve to know.
I am Mental.
Okay, so what do you think of when you think Traumatic Brain Injury? Car crash? Concussion?
Well, those definately cause it.
But my case is pretty peculiar.
In fact it's one of a kind.
So, you know strokes can cut off the blood flow to your brain, right?
Well that's what happened to me.
When I was in Utero, my mom had her appendix removed.
So she had a really hot fever, which I didn't like.
My body didn't react well to it, and I had a stroke.
It affected my Left Frontal Lobe, the part that deals with reactions and emotion.
Nobody knew until a couple years ago.
I mean, you put two and two together, you know?
I didn't use the right side of my body when I was little.
I've always been a pissy little brat.
I run like a gimp.
There are many things that could've caused it, but we figured the fever was the likeliest cause.
When I was six I was diagnosed with ADHD.
When I was eight, I was diagnosed with bipolar, and started taking pills.
When I was eleven I started going to Juvie.
I've probably been forty or so times.
Most of them for assault charges.
When I was twelve I was admitted into the Utah State Hospital.
Yes, the one with Brian David Mitchell.
Or at least, he was there... haha
Funny thing is my therapist is actually Timothy Mitchell, his brother!
But, back on track.
I was there for a year and a half.
I came home, but obviously what I learned didn't exactly sink in.
So I went back when I was thirteen and a half - that time for seven months.
I've been dandy ever since. Wouldn't know unless I told you.
Which I obviously have.
The reason that I told you all that is because I felt like it.
But I don't want you to think of me as That Mental Chick.
I want you to get to know me for me.
If you can appreciate and not hold my past against me, you are an incredible person.
^^ Cutest baby ever! For Real!
