Author has written 2 stories for Sherwood Smith, and Harry Potter.
A Brief Introduction:
Well, hello. Thanks for visiting my humble little page. I'm currently an overwhelmed highschool sophmore who's trying to juggle AP classes, Academic Decathlon, and music studies all at once. I have a particular passion for music, so I devote a lot of time into practicing my instruments (mainly flute, but also piano and Chinese harp). Unfortunately, I also have the classic set of demanding, overly strict, and ambitious Asian parents. As a result I must study very, very hard.
Between all this, I like to squeeze time in to just write. Though, admittedly, I don't get all that much done due to my hectic schedule and particular talent for procrastination. Nevertheless, I'm not giving up--I love writing. And I hope you'll enjoy my stories as much as I like sharing them. Thanks for reading!
Few Quick Facts:
Date of birth: 3/13/1990
Special talents: Procrastinating, spacing out, forgetting things, inventing insults, and horrifying people with profound strangness and insanity.
Likes: flute, tea, autumn, snow, rain, flowers, spicy food, chocolate, chinese harp, piano, interesting bits of history, dogs, wit, photoshop, oil painting, badminton, ping pong, and teaching little elementary kids.
Dislikes: humid weather, PE, vanity, pride, hypocrites, pop quizzes, public speaking, physics, parent lectures, and earthquakes.
Music: I'm fine with most music ... except rap, which really makes me want to murder somebody. I can deal with modern and popular music--but they sometimes bore me.
Books: Alas, for the past few years I've read very little. One because I have so, so little free time. Two because I'm usually reliant on my school library for books because I'm too poor to purchase them and my local library is really far away. Unfortunately, my new school has the worst library EVER, so I haven't been able to pick up good stuff lately.

"Happiness is like beauty--in the eye of the beholder." ~ Just Ella, by Margret Peterson Haddix
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angles, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
