Ok so here's my deal...

Name: Sam

Interests: books (duh), writing, jokes, music, friends
Twitter: That_sam_kid

I'm a writer, but admittedly, nothing nearly professional out of me...yet! Haha, i wish.

There isn't much to say, the pages of my life are, as of yet, mostly blank. I'm in my first year of college studying law. I have an older brother and younger sister. I play guitar, piano, violin, viola and bass, but don't ask me to sing if you value your ear drums... I've always been the 'funny' kid, but I I really don't find myself amusing... I'm not really sure why I'm here writing.


Music Playlist for 'The Other'

Here is the playlist I promised for The Other. No particular order, but I have grouped songs by the one artist together. By no means must you listen to them all at once, that is a LOT of music. But I would love if you’d give some of them a chance.

I would love reviews or messages telling me if you like the songs, or if you have heard any you would associate with my fic that you would like to share. I’m a huge music junkie so please, hit me up with interesting artists :)

Wow, that's a lot of songs :)

Here's a list of stuff I like

My friends, music, reading, reading Twilight fics, English, chicken MOTHER FUCKING parmagiana, cursing (see previous), being almost finished High School, travelling, Edward dreams, Cameron dreams (see my story 'The Other' if you don't get it. Take a squiz. Hopefully won't regret it), comedies, the BBC program 'Merlin', TV program 'Friends' (that shit is GOLD).

There's more, but nothing that springs to mind immediately

Stuff I don't like

Australian stereotypes (I do NOT ride a Kangaroo, I do NOT drink a beer around the 'barbie', I actually have a vaguely American accent and my every second word is not 'mate'), SERIOUSLY HATE AUSTRALIAN STEREOTYPES, the bogans that induce said stereotype, hitting my funny bone on stuff (it's not funny... at all!), fighting with my family, the sun, Team Jacob people who can't respect my team Edward opinion, sexism (unless it's joking), maths.

I think that about covers it!

Favourite Quotes:

"Always stay focused, never let your attention wand- HEY ICE CREAM TRUCK!"- Me
"Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss"- Douglas Adams
"You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try" -Homer Simpson
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's just that yours is stupid"- Anonymous
"I like parties, but I don't like piñatas because the pinata promotes violence against flamboyant animals. Hey, there's a donkey with some pizzazz. Let's kick its ass"- Demetri Martin
"Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time"- Demetri Martin
"I got some new pajamas with pockets in 'em. Which is great, because before that, I used to have to hold stuff when I slept. But now I'm like, 'Where's my planner? There it is. "Keep sleeping." All right, perfect.'"- Demetri Martin
"He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something" -John Kammer, Herndon

Music:

Escape The Fate, Paramore, All Time Low, Silverstein, Alexisonfire, You Me At Six, Mayday Parade, Placebo, Anti-Flag, Taking Back Sunday, A Day To Remember, Cartel, The Cab, Muse, Trivium, Iron Maiden, Taylor Swift, The Academy Is..., Anberlin, Closure In Moscow, Kisschasy, The Fratellis, Fatis Valour, Arctic Monkeys, Flyleaf, The Friday Night Boys, The Getaway Plan, Motion City Soundtrack, NeverShoutNever!, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Sum 41, Sunnyday Real Estate, 30 Seconds To Mars, Yiruma, Slayer, Queens of The Stone Age, Taking Dawn, Newfound Glory, Avenged Sevenfold, Asking Alexandria, Auburn, Pennywise, Social Distortion, StoneSour, Senses Fail, Linny Thornely, Karnivool, Bullet For My Valentine, Children Collide, Blessthefall, The Amity Affliction, Less Than Jake, Death Cab For Cutie... I HATE JACK JOHNSON TYPE MUSIC. MUSIC NEEDS A BEAT, DRUMS AND SOME EMOTION.

Fic Recommendations

Any Fics I would rec can be found in my Favourites- also, if you're ever looking for someone (other than me!) to blame for my delayed updating, PM these authors and give them a piece of your mind! THEY'RE the ones distracting me with their brilliant writing!

That said, if you're on here and haven't checked out 'The Other' yet, do me a favor and click that link. Do it. It won't bite. And I will love you forever (serious, there's no getting rid of me) if you review!

Hope that gave you some insight into my life :)
