Author has written 10 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Office, and RENT.
I guess this is the part where I tell you all about me...okay...hmm...well, I love to read, write, sing, dance, and act. I take hip-hop, jazz, tap (but I'm sure my very definite lack of skill at that will someday cause my teacher to snap and beat me to death with tap shoes), and ballet. Ballet and hip-hop are my favorites. Okay, I'm really horrible at describing myself, so this part's over...now.
Love: Reading, writing, hair elastics, straighteners, iPods, laptops, mechanical pencils, blank notebooks, camis, ballet slippers, dark jeans, nail polish, bangles, rings, shopping, friends, family, sports, snow, rain, thunder, lightning, lol catz, early morning spring, flowers, junk food, soda, classic Disney movies that you saw a million times as a kid, etc.
Hate: Waking up early, algebra homework, rudeness, hypocrisy, stereotypes (see that thing at the bottom), self-righteousness, when the last chocolate-chip muffin mysteriously disappears, running out of hot water (I admit, my long showers are probably contributing to this planet's death; sorry!), early morning sports-ok, early morning ANYTHING, etc.
Rent ships: All canon, plus preRENT Roger/April and Maureen/Mark, and Mark/Roger if it's well-written.
If you fall, it's because I tripped you. If you walk into a wall, I'll push you into another one. If you mess up, I'll never let you live it down. But if you need to cry, you can cry on my shoulder. Because that's what best friends are for.
I'll rise- but I refuse to shine.
More fitting words have never been spoken.
Robbers stab you in the head. Boyfriends stab you in the heart. Friends stab you in the back. Best friends don't carry knives.
The trouble with real life is that there's no background music.
I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants. -A. Whitney Brown
My sister was telling this riddle to her friend Emily. The answer is 'nothing'.
"Okay, what's more powerful than God, more evil than the Devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it, you will die?" - my sister
"Oh! I know this one! Rabies!" -Emily
"Emily...rabies is more powerful than God?" -Maggie, other friend
"Edward Cullen IS real! We just haven't seen him yet...like God!" -some girl in my sister's class
At dinner, me and my sis were talking (ranting) about RENT while my parents watched.
"Angel as a white guy looks like Michael Jackson..." -me
"RENT!" -my dad
"I just wanted to be a part of the conversation..." -my dad
Our power went out after this huge snowstorm, so I lit a bunch of candles and carried one around, dancing around my kitchen singing "Light My Candle" while my sister watched.
"Ta da!"- me
Then the wax burned me. Woohoo. :p
"Ouch! Ouch! F_ck, ow!"- me
"Oh, the wax, it's dripping, I like it between my-" -my sis
"Oh, shut up."- me
"Oh my god, this teacher is so oblivious. (shouting at her) Oblivious, oblivious, oblivious!" -Nikki, in math class when we had this really old sub who was, well...oblivious!
"Let me try...I'm dying!" -me. Nothing. She didn't even look up. I'm starting to lose faith in our public school system...
We're in Little Italy (Wooster Street =) in line at Frank Pepe's...it was like a twenty minute wait...but it was like, THE BEST pizza I have ever had...and so the line was like, 40 people long, and we're just standing around waiting and eating Italian cookies.
"Blah, blah, blah."- us (not really, but you know what I mean)
"ACHOOOO!"- guy in front of his.
I jumped. It was so loud!
"Okay, you scared ME, and you scared her(points to me)!...And I think that lady back there."- the guy's buddy
"Me too."- my sister
If you have ever wished with all your heart that you could give Roger a really BIG hug so he would stop angsting, copy this into your profile.
Especially in that scene where's he's singing Another Day, 'I should tell you, I should tell you, I should tell you, I should- NO!" He's like a big, screwed up teddy bear!
If you would love to scream 'Anarchy! Revolution, justice screaming for solution, forcing changes, risk and danger, making noise, and making pleas!' at a political debate, copy this into your profile.
Seriously, wouldn't it be fun?! I mean, the getting-arrested part would be not-so-fun...but the screaming part would rock!
If you have ever fantasized about Mark pulling you up onto the stage during La Vie Boheme, copy this into your profile.
I'd be on the table. For sure.
If your body provides a comfortable home for the Aquired Immune RENThead Syndrome, copy this into your profile.
No explanation needed.
If it pisses you off when people write about Collins moving on after Angel dies, because as far as you're concerned, she never died, so technically, you think he's cheating on her, copy this into your profile.
They were meant for each other and will never ever be meant for anyone else and people who think otherwise are stupid! ...So there...
RENT is my hope, my love, my fear, my passion, my obsession, my joy, my sorrow, my LIFE. RENT is love. I'm not just saying that. From the moment the first chords of Seasons chimed over the theatre speakers, I fell in love. I did. They've changed my life. RENT is about being young, being in love, being afraid and being brave, loving someone enough to keep them close to you, but loving them enough to let them go when it's their time. RENT is about hope, life, death, pain, misery, addiction. RENT is about life. Your life. Not only do you know these people, you are these people. Every one of them. If you can't relate with Mark you relate with Roger, or if you can't relate with Mimi you relate to Angel. There's more of you in all of these people than you realize there is. It's not about AIDS and Drag Queens and the Homeless, it's about your life. You experience love and hurt and fear just like these people do. RENT is about everything we experience everyday and that's why I love it.
Found this on a parental advisory website for Rent. This was on a list of things parents should take into consideration before letting their kids see the movie. Among this, there was bad language, sexual content, and Roger flipping off Mark. But of course, this one is far more sinful...Protect our youth!
-It's possible the film could inspire some kids to break into song and/or dance.
1) Being gay is not natural. People always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, liposuction and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Briteny Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans...

Stereotypes are horrible and degrading! Repost if you believe this.
Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.
