Hi, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Konnichiwa. Shalom. Privet. My name's Alissa. I have shoulder length brown hair (NOT black, thank you very much) and brown eyes. I wear my red glasses if i feel like it, 'cos I'm only shortsighted in one eye. I like anime, my favourites being Soul Eater and Romeo X Juliet (Because I am a soppy romantic sentimentalist). I also like Avatar: The Last Airbender, even though I'm not sure its an actual anime. Also, I love Doctor Who. I believe the technical term is a 'Whovian', correct me if I'm wrong.
What's my favourite subject? I wish I knew myself. I love English, obviously, but analysing non-fiction text for four lessons straight gets to me sometimes. Or a comparitive essay on 'Macbeth'. I love art, but I cannot draw. I mean really CANNOT draw. I'm hoping I can wriggle my way through GCSE's using other mediums. Music. I love music. Piano, clarinet...And my penny whistle counts. It's beautiful. I like history, but I keep getting terrible marks because I can't write about it :) German is my favourite language that I speak. I like French too, but as soon as I'm in a lesson - Poof! - I can't tell the near future from the simple future. And because I love languages so much, I am trying to get around to learning Russian, Hebrew and Japanese PROPERLY. Because I keep revising on and off which is very annoying for me.
If you were to ask my little group of friends if I like reading, their response would be...
"Are you kidding me? Do you breathe air? in fact, I do believe she's using this little imaginary conversation to get a head start on that book she bought the other day. Alissa, stop being anti-social"
Eddie - speaker number two - is half Irish and goes to Ireland all the time, and he used to live in Oxford or something, so he sometimes speaks like an upper class English person, and sometimes like a drunk Irishman. It depends on how much sugar/caffiene he's had or how long he's been around us. He's also quite mad (err, i mean GENEROUS), so he gave me his unwanted £20 waterstones giftcard for my birthday!!!! He also has an evil cousin called Patrick who looks exactly like him, but he's very evil. (My source of information is a picture in Eddie's front room, as I did not attend the ledgendary DRUNK STALKER GUY party because I was in a canal boat in Manchester.) Edward is also on Fanfiction, as Bruno-Bluesteak. Please feel welcome to search him and check out his profile, but he hates books and only likes anime, minecraft, and his sweet cute little-ickle puppy Callie so his profile is boooooring.
And yes, that is a true to life example of how my best friend, Ruby would answer. Ten years together now! All because of that dress (I won't go into details. She'll kill me)
"PLEASE post this as your status if you know someone who has been eaten by badgers. Badgers are nearly unstoppable and, when hungry, also breathe fire. 71% of people won't copy this into their status because they have already been eaten by badgers. Another 28% won't because they are hiding in their showers with fire extinguishers awaiting the coming badgercalypse. The remaining 1% are awesome and will re-post"
THIS IS BADGER PROPAGANDA. DO NOT RE-POST IT.

So, I know I'm not the most regular updater (I write LOTS of stories of my own) and I'm afraid that my punctuality isn't going to get any better (Exams...We all hate them...) But please know that I haven't forgotten anything!

If you have ever copied and pasted something onto your profile, copy and paste this onto your profile.
If Justin Bieber jumped off the Empire State Building, 93% of girls would kill themselves. If you are part of the 7% that would be there with a bag of popcorn and a video camera screaming "Do a backflip! DO A BACKFLIP!" and cheering when he died, copy this onto your profile.
If Justin Bieber jumped off the Empire State Building, 93% of girls would kill themselves and 6% would be there with a bag off popcorn and a video camera. Copy and paste this onto your profile if you would be the 1% there with a shotgun in case he chickened out. (Thank you Holly for making this up! Actually, it's quite worrying now that I think about it...)
If you wish that a fictional character was real, copy and paste this to your profile.

If your friends are considering torturing you to stop talking about a fictional character, copy and paste this into your profile (Except none of them listen to me any more. Well, except for the other day when Ruby and Eddie got into an argument over which of them knew me best. But yeah. I even have a deal with another friend. She doesn't listen to me when I talk about books or recite poetry, and I don't listen to her when she talks about prime numbers or recites Pi to the nearest fifty decimal places)
If you've ever done or said something that made perfect sense to your real friends, but made your peers look at you strangely, copy this onto your profile.
Did you know the average American only reads 3 books a year? If you don't believe that it's even possible to read that little, copy and paste this onto your profile.
If you are guilty of sometimes using a British accent, even if you're not British, copy this onto your profile. (But I am , so...I dunno. I still use an English accent I guess. And whoever made that should be more specific. Wales is in Britain, so is Scotland and Northern Ireland. There's a thought for you. So technically I do use a Bristish accent sometimes. As in there was that week where I tried to pretend to be Irish. Except the last Irish person I met was Caoimhe in Year Three (Not counting Ed. His accent is plain weird). So it was more Irish/Scottish/Welsh/German. Don't ask about the German. I miss Caoimhe. She had the coolest name.)

This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
