Stuff you should know about me:
I love to read. It is an obsession that will never end. I am in love with the written word, poetry and prose. To me writing is an art as beautiful, and as hard to perfect and preform, as the most intricate dance. Writing reveals the personality of the author; it bears the author's soul to the world. A good writer puts his or herself into the story in little pieces. Every character, every scene, every event reflects on who the author is. Every good story is an autobiography twisted and morphed into a piece of entertainment. The best stories teach something. Those are the kind of stories I want to write someday, stories that touch people and make a difference.
Talking about making a difference, I have attended the (first the Central Austin, and now the Texas State University) Relay For Life, a non-profit fund-raising event by the American Cancer Society, for 12 years now. It is a great way to help fight against cancer and to make a difference in your community. I urge everyone to attend their local Relay For Life, and to start one if you don't have a local Relay. The Central Austin Relay alone raised over $101,700 during their last event. If we all work together we really can put an end to cancer. *gets off soapbox*
