My name's McKenna. I prefer Kenna, but you can call me whatever you like: Kenna, McKenna, NaNa, Mo, Mac, Hermione Look-a-Like, Moronic Girl Who Gets Really Upset at Stupid Sappy Movies or Books, but I do have one request: PLEASE CAPITALIZE THE "K" IN MY NAME. I don't like to be pompous about it, but my mother put it that way on my birth certificate, and I would really like to avoid her wrath. Thanks in advance.
I would insert some deep philosophical comment about how much I love life and Starbucks and Niall Horan and dogs and sunny days but I figured that's pretty tedious and redundant, so HELLO FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS. I LOVE ALL OF THE ABOVE. PLEASE BE MY FRIEND.
Cue the horribly-aggrandized autobiography of someone who wants to look cooler online than they actually are in real life:
I am one of those people that runs before they walk. Or, as I did when I was little, walks on their head. It's had its ups and downs, but hey, I'm still in one piece, which I see as a divine accomplishment. Supposedly it's good to run before one walks, but if you happen to trip... well, a Band-Aid might be more than necessary.
Physically, I look ridiculous. I wear big, Urkel-esque glasses because I will probably fall into a ditch or get hit by a car if I don't. My hair is a lot like Emma Watson's as Hermione Granger in the first Harry Potter movie (You can imagine the bedhead...). I'm ridiculously clumsy (unfortunately), which is genetically inherited from a parent of mine who has the grace of a newborn baby giraffe (THANKS A LOT, DAD). When I sing, I sound like a dying pelican (and dying pelicans generally aren't attractive), so I tend to stick to playing instruments like the piano, guitar and flute. I speak English, German, and a little bit of American Sign Language (which I guess you don't technically speak, but I can sign "I want more cake," which is super important.) I love Harry Potter more than anything in the world, right next to Irish boys, a strong cup of tea and baby elephants. My biggest dream is to travel the world. I would love to write a real novel one day and get it published, but as of now, I don't have time (stupid overachieving persona and easily-bored mind). I'm a female (LIKE I'M SURE YOU COULDN'T TELL, given all the haranguing, capitalized statements, asides and commas) and I really like to wear Blair Waldorf-esque dresses (which, of course, I'm too poor to own any of).
I read an embarrassing amount of books in my life. Actually, I don't think it's embarrassing - it's downright horrifying and worthy of alienation. In fact, I'm never without a book. My copy of To Kill a Mockingbird has seen more time in a hotel room than it has on an actual bookshelf. One would suspect my intellect to be superior (look at how ridiculously pretentious I sound LOL), but to be truthful, I suck at math (EXCEPT MULTIPLICATION... I'm good at that), I don't know my District Attorney's name (my Government teacher is probably somewhere shaking his head at me), all my science knowledge comes from Bill Nye the Science Guy's videos (I mean, C'MON!), and I can't even spell "especially," without having to say it out like "ES-PECK-CALL-EE."
If you're wondering, I did in fact Google how to spell "especially."
Among my fandoms, Doctor Who, Gossip Girl, the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, and Elementary reign. My music collection is wide; I love pop music, as any witty, angst-ridden teenager like myself would: One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, f.u.n, Lady Gaga, Lights, Sam Smith, Zella Day, Demi Lovato, Josh Groban, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Betty Who, CHVRCHES, Daughty, David Cook, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco... But then there's obscure ones, like Billy Joel, Snow Patrol, Spice Girls, Queen, Journey, Phil Collins, Bleachers, Of Monsters and Men, Halestorm, Frank Sinatra, and Earth Wind & Fire that all mean a lot to me.
Also, you start a Disney lyric, and I promise you, I WILL FINISH IT.
Ich liebe dich, dearies. :)
