About Me

My name is Regina and I'm the girl on the very left! The girl to the right is one of my best friends. The picture was taken June 11, 2009 at our middle school graduation party! On August 25, 2008, I turned 13 years old. Thanks for bothering to read this !(:

In case any of you are wondering, I live in Southern California. I used to prefer cloudy days to sunny days, but the sun has grown on me after living here all my life! I love living where I live and I could never imagine living anywhere else! I don't live in a city as small as Forks, but it's not a huge city either. We don't get a lot of press, but my city probably wouldn't be considered as safe as Forks. Unlike Alice, I'm fortunate enough to be within walking distance of a mall. The high school in my city has over 3,600 students! We have three different middle schools (all very competitive, I might add) and six elementary schools. I'm always looking toward my future, but I still love to stop and enjoy the present. I have some regrets about my past, but I try not to dwell on them.

I'm officially a high school freshman! I graduated from my middle school on June 12, 2009! This entire year I've been so looking forward to high school and yet I must have cried ten different times on the last day of school.

Anyway, I'm a Virgo. I read my horoscope in magazines every chance I get. I tend to believe in tarot cards and those types of things, but I've never gotten a reading. But that's probably just as well since they might make me paranoid and keep me from living my life to its fullest extent. Life is too short to live it in fear of the future!

When I get out of college, I want to move to New York and get a career in writing (I do realize that I previously said that I couldn't imagine living anywhere but So Cal, but I guess I'm just full of contradictions and hard to figure out!). The idea of living in New York fascinates me, but I don't think I'd last five minutes. I'm terrified of subways—as ridiculous as that sounds. I've watched too many horror movies! If I move to New York, it'll be a huge step for me! My dream college is Columbia U. I figure it's wishful thinking (actually, it's probably next to impossible), but I'm not giving up! Actually, I have a suspicious that Columbia U is my destined university because I originally picked it out since it was the only Ivy League in New York. But upon further investigation I found out that their logo is a crown! J'adore crowns! And then, by chance, two of the books I was reading mentioned that Columbia University has a great English Lit program ! What else could I want in a university?(:

Personally, I think that there are many things that I would like to change about myself. As a teenager, I believe that this is a period of change, where we find ourselves. For starters, I wish I was less high-maintenance. I often need motivation to go out of my way for others. I want to be able to see the beauty of everybody's personalities rather than judge them by their appearance. I also think that I'm too easily influenced. It makes it hard to stay true to myself. Some of you are probably asking why I'm sitting here writing about my problems rather than working on them. However, I believe that the first step in fixing your problems is acknowledging them. Therefore, by having the strength to admit my bad tendencies to others and to myself, I'm benefiting.

Truth be told, I think the Twilight Series isn't as great a book as everybody thinks! I must admit that I've fallen in absolute love with the characters (the Cullens, especially Edward), but I don't think Twilight deserves to be a number one bestseller. Have any of my creations ever made it onto the best-sellers list? No where near. Am I in any position to be criticizing a book that so many people have fallen in love with all across the world? Hardly. However, I must admit that the only thing I like about Twilight is the characters in it—after all, the writing style and plot line is no where near brilliant. Because of this, I prefer reading Twilight (All Human) fan fiction as opposed to the book.

My passions include, but are not limited to: reading&writing (that's a given), photography, singing&dancing, and fashion.

If you truly believe there is an 'Edward Cullen somewhere for you, copy this into your profile.

My Stories and Future Projects

Take Care

Status: In Progress

Summary: AU, All human. Bella's looking for a summer job and the Cullens are looking for a live-in nanny for the 2 youngest Cullen kids. But Bella finds more than just a decent paycheck at her new job. She finds a best friend, new opportunities, and... true love?

A Deeper Look: This is the first story that I've ever posted. I'll admit it starts off slow and you have to be patient if you're reading it for the romance. Before we get to the romance part of the story, however, you have some drama and humor to keep you amused.This story has become a bigger hit than I could've hoped. I guess you can think of it as my 'debut.' I first posted this story when I was 12 years old. I'm not that much older now (a few months, but you could say I'm officially 13 now), but looking back, I know my writing has progressed and that it's just going to keep getting better.


Note from the Author Herself

Saturday, November 29, 2008: I realize that I haven't updated my story, Take Care, for an unacceptably long time now. I apologize deeply. As you're reading this, I'm becoming reaquainted with my story and working on satisfying all of your requests! When I have an estimated date as to when I'm going to update, I'll be sure to mention it right here. Again, I sincerely apologize! If you have any comments or complaints, don't hesitate to PM me. Please check again soon!

Friday, June 19, 2009: I'm still alive, guys! And still very, very sorry for not updating. I've been having some very busy weeks. I have, however, updated my profile. Now it's summertime and you'd think my schedule would've lightened up, but no. Not really at all actually. My love for Twilight has truly diminshed to nothing. I'm sorry to say that. But at the very least I'm still in love with writing and many of the stories here on fanfiction, so I'll continue visiting and try my best to update my story soon. For real, hopefully. Thank you so much to all of you who still have faith in my and my story, however undeserved it is. Again don't hesitate to PM me!
