Leo lovers unite! (I'm talking bout' my man Leo V, and does anyone else think it's funny that Charmed (I've not read it though...) and Heros of Olympus have two of the same names for characters, and there in love in charmed (I think...)?)
I am not that girl, The one that is super popular. The one that is rich. The one obsessed with Twilight (I'm not reading it, stop trying to convince me and mind your own beezwax, i'm happy with HOO). The one that will lie to get her way. The one that doesn't care about your feelings. The one that wears her Team Edward or Team Jacob shirt proudly. The one that has a new boyfriend every week. The one that hates her life because she wears size-two jeans. The one that would cry over a boy. The one that loves Justin Bieber. The one that will give up because she broke a nail. The one that started wearing makeup at nine years old.
I am that girl, The one who likes books more than boys. The one who pretends not to be sad, just to make others happy. The one who reads and writes to escape. The one who just wants to help. The one that really wants to make a difference. The one that sticks to her values. The one that in fact hates justin beiber (he don't (not bad grammer, hear me out here!) deserve caps) and everything about him (I don't care if we share the same favorite color!).The one that doesn't look at race or homosexuality. The one that cries when she feels alone and helpless; it only shows she's strong. The one that knows she's beautiful, no matter what others say. The one that refuses to believe that this is it. The one that people like, because she's crazy. The one that doesn't care if she looks like idiot, because if looking like a idiot is what it takes, go for it. (Before it said retard, but that isn't a nice thing to say) The one that will do anything to make a better tomorrow. The one who won't give in. The one won't give up.

Ello! I'm weird, random, and probably insane, why do you care?
I know i'm weird. I reviewed my own book and tried to PM myself, didn't work out so well. I'm random, characters in a book i'm writing that i hope to get published have sour skittle wars with her best friend, and she and her bestfriend have candy debates after halloween. I know i'm insane, ask my brother and all my friends which are boys. I dance to a differant drummer, and sing (somewhat out off key :)) to a differant song. I have a minion, his name is Ralph, he is an elf, and he is taller than me with a mop of black hair (that looks really cute on him mind you!) and gorgeous green eyes, he is my current alternative love life (opposed to Leo Valdez!). What's wrong with me? Nothing, I'm maintaining a healthy level of insanity, what's wrong with you? Someone asks me why i'm weird, I say, "Why aren't you?" If you agree with me, copy the parts not containing my book or my minion (or any other personal parts).

Some people say they are big readers. That they're so into books it's not funny. However the only way to tell is if they 1) Suddenly gasp when something exciting happens in the book. (I don't do that, I drop the book (usually on the bed...) and start breathing funny and almost start screaming.) 2) Start talking to the book because that's not how they want the book to go. (No No no. I cry when there is a misunderstood character. Like in The westing game which I MUST read again...) 3) Hurl the book across the room when one of their favorite characters dies. (*SPOILER* Mark of Athena, I'm looking at you.) Copy and paste this if you are one of these people.
