Hey! I'm Grace and I'm a freshman in high school, looking for something to do. So I found this website and decided to write a little bit. I'm not here to publish anything, I just love writing stories and such. Right now, my high school absolutely sucks because we have 98 people in the freshman class. 98. Some people I dislike, some people I like and some boys I really like (but they're too stupid to understand that because they're all socially retarded).
My favorite books are the Twilight series and the Harry Potter series.
I actually started reading Twilight before anyone else. It really came out in October of 2005, and I got a copy for Christmas. However, I was young and I had no idea what was going on in the book, so I shoved it in my bookshelf. Two or three years later, my friend was like "Oh my god you have to read this book!" and it was Twilight. I've loved Edward ever since. Except I was surprised to find out a couple weeks ago that Stephanie Meyer is a mormon! I didn't know that. Supposedly the whole "bite me!" and the "no, I can't" thing is a sign of abstinence.
And you know when everyone was obssessing over the fact the 7th Harry Potter book was coming out in the summer? Well, I was at camp, and my friend's mom mailed it to her. I've never read them, and my sister had so I was like "Hm, I'll start." So at home, I read the 1st in a day, 2nd in 2 days, 3rd in 2 days and the 4th in a week. I started the 5th but I then started school and didn't have time. Then winter break I finished the 5th, finished the 6th and started the 7th and over about 2 weeks of school, I finished it. They were AMAZING.
This year I've had many problems with boys . I've actually never had a boyfriend, or kissed anyone, I'll have a crush on them, and they might have a crush on me, but some 'problem' comes up. Right now, we like each other, but he's not doing a thing. Ugh. Boys. If someone wants to explain to me how they work, please. FEEL FREE TO COMMENT ON MY PROFILE!!! Or if you have any dating advice - please tell me.
Top 10 Books in my house (not in specific
- Twilight Series (Stephanie Meyer)
- Harry Potter Series (J.K. Rowling)
- Stargirl - followed by Love, Stargirl (Jerry Spinelli)
- Kira Kira (Cynthia Kadohata)
- Princess Diaries (Meg Cabot)
- Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Anne Brashares)
- ttyl; ttfn; l8r, g8r (Lauren Myracle)
- Watchmen (Alan Moore)
- Bourne Identity - still have to finish! (Robert Ludlum)
- Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist - a book, too (Rachel Cohn & David Levithan)
If you don't like any of those books, I'm not gonna hunt you down or anything, I accept opinions easily. But now I'm starting to read more 'sophisticated' books, I guess you can say? Like Atonement (Ian McEwan), Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen), Summer (Edith Wharton), etc. If you want to suggest any books for me, please feel free!
I also have a weird obsession for WWII. I love learning
about how we conquered the Axis. Especially D-Day - that's like
the coolest story in history. 156,000 men died for the French! My
favorite movie is Saving Private Ryan (I RECOMMEND), and I love
writing stories about it (The Letters). I am totally against war
in any ways possible! I just happen to love learning about WWII.
So basically, I love reading and writing and I'm bored on winter break, so what other thing is there to do but write?! Besides hang out with boys... :]
Thanks for reading my profile! Feel free to read my stories and comment (criticism is suggested!).
Have a GREAT new year!
One more thing: OBAMA!
