Backstory: Eloise was born in Helsinki, Finland but she's lived in New York since she was 4. Her parents died when she was 5 causing her brother to start being a Newsie. The only way she was able to stay at the lodging house was to pretend to be a boy, so her brother cut her hair and dressed her up in his old clothes and introduced her as Louie.

Personality: Kivuta is the most fun loving/talkitive person you'll ever meet. At times she'll act about half her age but mostly she'll act her age or even seem a little bit older. Sometimes Kivuta will isolate herself. At times she may seem cold and a little bit harsh but she'll quickly go back to being her regular self.

Aloha! As it says right on top of the page, I’m AngelInDisguise123. This website is my way of helping me both type and talk to other people. Not to mention the reviews and expressing myself.
Anyways, I’m really into Percy Jackson, Maximum Ride, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. A shout out to all you vampire-crazy fans; I’m not into the whole Twilight Saga. Makes no sense to me.
About me liking those books and TV show-turn-into-movie, I’m starting to read other series of books so it won’t just be those three up there.
Age: At least thirteen give or take.
Lives: Georgia, the Goober State, the Empire State of the South and the Peach State.
Things I really like: Peace, Love, and Happiness (what’s not to like!) Friends, family, my golden retriever puppy Pebbles, reading. (Deep breath) Myths, Movies, Jackie Chan, Nickelodeon, and so on.
Stuff I do when I’m bored: Try to see if my tongue can touch my nose, stare at the wall, hum, sing FreeCreditReport.com, and sleep. (and in the worst way possible) falling out of my bed, waking up to find dry drool( yuck) and hearing my siblings yelling that I’m snoring!
Stuff I hate (I mean, highly highly dislike): being told I’m just a kid while others tell me to grow up, music I can’t understand the words to, losing and JUSTIN BEIBER!!!.
Family: Mom, Dad, sister, Aonani, brothers Iokua and Kale.
Languages I speak: this is not a really common subject but my parents are Hawaiian and I speak both that and English. Why they came from that island to the other side of the country I’ll never know.
Books I LOVE: Any Margaret Peterson Haddix books, any Rick Riordan, Maximum Ride series, any Time Travel Books, but not under any circumstances biographies or autobiographies!

Funny things to do at school:
Bring some books to class and read them instead of paying attention or doing any work.
Walk around class begging for spare change.
Chew on your arm until someone notices.
Change seats every time the teacher turns his/her back.
After the teacher explains something, laugh really loud and say "Oh, now I get it!"
Lick yourself clean like a cat does.
After the teacher has explained something, say "Quite right, old bean" in the typical old English style.
Sing your questions to the class.
When the teacher calls roll, after each name scream "THAT'S MEEEEE!!! Oh, no, sorry."
Page through the textbook scratching each picture and sniffing it.
Address the teacher as "your honour".
Sit in the front, sniff suspiciously, and ask the teacher if he's been drinking.
Present the teacher with a large fruit basket.
Ask for an extra copy of each handout, for your invisible friend sitting next to you.
Claim that you wrote the class textbook.
Stand to ask questions. Bow deeply before taking your seat after the teacher answers.
Laugh loudly at everything the teacher says. Be sure to snort and make weird noises while you laugh.
When the teacher turns their back to the class, scream and bang desks, then when they turn around act normal and get on with your work.
Get everyone in the class to start humming softly, and gradually hum louder.
At a completely random time, put up your hand to ask a question. When the teacher picks you, ask a question about a different subject and pretend you thought it was that class.
Put your hand up, and when the teacher acknowledges you, just say "I'm pointing at the ceiling".
When a substitute introduces himself as a substitute, have you and your friends all yell "FRESH MEAT!!!!" at the same time.
Raise your hand as if to ask a question, then just say 'buh buh bah buh buh buh?' or similar nonsense. Then act like the teacher should get it.
Say you're invisible and when people say you're not, start crying.
Superglue a coin to the ground and watch people try to pick it up.
While the teacher is writing, hide the board rubber. When he/she goes to get somebody (like the principal), replace it in the same place & make him/her look insane.
Tell your teacher that you don't do homework because it's against your religion.
Draw a smiley face on a piece of paper, and talk to it.
While taking a test, get up about halfway through and point at the teacher or someone random and scream "You ruined Christmas" and then storm out of the room, slamming the door on your way out.
When the teacher turns his/her attention to you and calls you to answer the question, act as if you're an undercover agent and refuse to give information.
When you have a 2000 word essay due, hand in two pictures related to the topic. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
When a teacher asks you for your homework, angrily exclaim that you are a member of Greenpeace or the Earth Liberation Front, and that the mass slaughter of innocent trees is unacceptable.
Raise your hand, and when the teacher calls on you, ask where babies come from in a childish voice.
Raise your hand and ask to go to the nurse and say, "I SEE DEAD PEOPLE."
When the teacher hands out an assignment, put your shoes on your hands and attempt to do your work while whining about how hard it is. If the teacher tries to say anything, say, "You don't know me!" and run away crying. Works best with numerous people.
