Hello Everyone!

My name is Mercedes (yes after the car...my parents love me right?haha). I'm 21.

I love reading. I read all types of genres, although my favorite is romance/action. Recently I read Deception Point by Dan Brown, and I was completely blown away. It was amazing. I love how books can provide me with an alternate universe to experience the unreal. I also think that writing and reading are artistic outlets for people. I appreciate authors so much because to me, when they write, it is like they are giving their readers a piece of their soul. So to all the authors out there, Thank You!!

Other than reading, i have a passion for sports. I love to be outside and running around. I'm completely obsessed with Basketball, and i spend most of my time doing that. When school starts i'm totally into the work, because i love to learn. Oh and another obsession of mine is chocolate...what can i say? it just tastes so good.

I listen to music all the time. I like all kinds of stuff but i'm really into Linkin Park, Saosin, Paramore, 30 seconds to mars and JT!

I hope you enjoy my stuff if i decide to put anything on the site!

Love~Mercedes

PS- this is one of my favorite poems about seizing the day and living in the moment.

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,

Old time is still a-flying;

And this same flower that smiles today

Tomorrow will b e dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,

The higher he's a-getting,

The sooner will his race be run,

And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,

When youth and blood are warmer;

But being spent, the worse, and worst

Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, use your time,

And, while ye may, go marry;

For, having lost but once your prime,

You may forever tarry."

~ Robert Herrick
