hey, i'm amber. i'm the most awkward person you'll ever meet
I'm still in school, let's just say that for my age.
I live in England, but I'd love to move to California or New York when I'm older! :D
I love listening to music, especially R5's songs! I don't know if you've heard of them, but if you don't.. why are you living such a quiet life?
I love Disney films, like my family always says "You can't beat a Disney DDD!" (Don't ask why they call it a DDD, it's a very long story...) :)
Another thing about my accent is I sound Australian. I say my 'er's' and a lot of my sounds like an Australian person (eg, I pronounce ar's higher too, like car, bar, farm, etc.); I have no idea where it came from. A lot of people I meet ask me if I'm originally from Australia. I'm really strange, huh?
REAL QUICK, HERE'S THE DEAL:
For a while, I've been watching How I Met Your Mother (about 5 years) and I've seen every episode, when I first started - I loved Ted and Robin, but then I eased off and just wanted Ted to find his girl and always love her, and so I slowly began to like Barney and Robin. Since Season 9, I've leaned off of them, and really wanted Ted to be happy. When people say the finale was the worst at it just angled Ted and Robin, I couldn't agree less. From season 3, all I've wanted is for Ted to find his girl have his love story and be happy. I say with the finale episode - I've got all I wanted. He had his love story, he had kids, he was married - he loved Tracy and had the love story he's always dreamed of. He cared and loved his kids, and spent 6 years caring for them alone, only then does he get the approval from his kids to see Robin again, which he does the same way in the first episode. He won't love her as much as he did for Tracy, he'll never love anyone like Tracy, but he'll spend his years left happy. And that's all I ever wanted.
“Writing is considered stereotypical. Writing is considered dorky.
You probably laugh at the girl in the corner of the room, who is scribbling something in her notebook yet again. She only makes eye contact if absolutely necessary, which isn’t often. You wonder how long she has had that notebook, because it looks old and torn, and you don’t remember a time you have ever seen her without it.
You see her in a coffee shop, observing everything and everyone. You look at her as if she was a weirdo, and she looks at you back. She doesn’t tear her gaze away, so you do it instead. She immediately begins to write in that notebook of her’s, making you wonder what’s inside it.
At the school dance, she comes without a date or friends. You and your date were having fun, but as soon as she gets there, you feel distracted. She simply sits at a table, writing in her notebook, glancing up every so often to take in her surroundings. You excuse yourself from your date and sit down next to her, hoping to just see what she’s writing. She doesn’t even look at you; just gets up and sits down at the next table.
You think you just got rejected by a nerd.
You are practicing football in the park, and when you’re dismissed, you get ready to go. As soon as you are about to leave, you see a shape moving around in the middle of the field. You take a closer look and realize that it is her, laughing and spinning around in the tall grass. She collapses down and begins to jot down more things in her notebook, the smile not leaving her face.
You are walking down an empty hallway, but stop because you hear the sound of crying. You take a peak around the corner and see her leaning up against the lockers, crying her eyes out. She is furiously writing in her notebook, not even realizing that you are watching her. You feel really bad, but you can’t associate yourself with nerds like her.
If only you saw everything from her perspective…
She is not a nerd, she is a writer. There is a big difference. When she sits in the corner of the room and writes, it shows that she can’t get that burning idea for a story out of her head. A writer cannot pay attention to anything else before they write down all the ideas etched in the back of their minds.
When she sits in the coffee shop, watching everyone walk by, she is not being creepy. It most likely means she has writer’s block, and is searching everywhere for inspiration. Little did you know, when you locked eyes with her, you gave her everything she needed. All a writer needs for a good story is simply an exchanged glance.
A writer goes to an event to make memories. Writers use memories to make great stories. The girl went to the dance for just that reason. She was quite angry when you sat next to her; all writers need their concentration. She didn’t even know that the person who sat down was you before she moved tables to find a place to write in peace. A writer wishes to be in private most of the time.
So, no, you did not get rejected by a nerd.
You got rejected by a writer.
A writer knows how to turn their emotions into writing. She knew her character was supposed to feel happy, so she ran to the park as fast as she could. She stood in the middle of the field and just ran and played, because her character was a child, and that’s how children feel joy. As soon as she was feeling the same emotions her character felt, she copied them down, so she understood the feeling better. A writer writes before they lose the emotion they need to make a great story.
She was not crying because of anything someone said or did! A true writer doesn’t care about people’s opinions, just their own opinion. She was so caught up in the sadness of her own writing, that she can’t control the tears that forced their way out. She not only feels the emotions she writes, but makes sure she keeps editing until she does. A good writer knows that a piece is good when they are exploding with emotions when they write it.
Writing is not stereotypical, and writing is not dorky.
Writing is an art.
The girl with the notebook is probably a better person than any of your friends combined. She is not a nerd; she is simply an artist.
She knows how to capture a person’s heart with a simple sentence.
She knows how to create a whole other world by just picking up a pen.
She knows how to transmit her feelings into the written word.
She is not a nerd.
She is an artist.
Don’t underestimate the power of writing. It gets everyone every time.
Because I can bet you anything that one day, you will become too curious as to what is in the girl’s notebook. You will somehow be able to pry it from her grasp and read what is inside. Suddenly, all your opinions will change about her, because writers can change people’s hearts. You will be begging to take her out on a date, and when she finally accepts, it will be the best date of your life.
Because writers have the biggest, best personalities.
Before you know it, you’ll be on one knee for the writer you fell in love with, just because her writing was so magnificent.
You call me crazy, but when it happens, I’ll be there to say I told you so.”
-Kate Casey, a girl with a notebook.
For me, crazy is a loose term. Crazy is when you stare at a pencil and laugh when someone asks you just what you find so interesting about the eraser. Crazy is when you have an hour-long sob-fest, then start singing and dancing when your favorite song plays. Crazy is when you do or say a totally random thing, like "Do you ever wonder where the eraser bits go?" or start having a thumb war with yourself.

Austin & Ally showed me...
Any dream you have, if you work hard on it and never give up, even if you have a one in bazillion chance of making it come true, if you work have enough you can make it come true with the help of your best friends.
Don't be afraid of change, you may lose something good, but you'll gain something better.
There is more than one type of weasel...
You can create a new song in one day if you work on it all night long...
Never under any circumstances EVER touch Ally's book.
Never put Ally on The Helen Show's stage as she will destroy the studio...
Never leave Austin and Dez with your pet bird...
Take chances because you may never know what happens if you don't let down your walls.
Sometimes you find that you're looking for someone who is right next to you, you'll find out if you look hard enough...
Some people will always fight, but when it comes down to it - they care.
Falling in love with your best friend is tough, isn't painless, and it gets complicated quickly... but in the end, it'll be perfectly... worth it.
Never, ever, be someone you're not. Be you and everyone will love you for it, and even if it takes a while to share that with the world, do it.
Everyone has somebody out there made for you.
The universe has a plan for you, and it's scary to think that, but it does and it'll make sure you're happy.
Always look for the positive.
Make sure after you're done with something; you really are.
Know if you're in the right love story.
Just because you have a love story, doesn't mean you can show everyone else how to do it.
If a friend tells you no questions asked, it means no questions asked.
Sometimes, you have to follow your heart instead of doing what everyone else expects of you.
Follow your heart.
What somebody may have wanted you to be, might not what you want to be - and you need to be and do what you want, not what others expect of you.
Tell the person you like that you like them, even if you're scared.
It doesn't matter what clique a person's out of.
Be who you are, because you are the only you that you are ever going to get.
Listen to your heart, it might not be an easy thing to do, but eventually - if you listen to it - the answers will come to you.
Don't ever let anyone else influence what you wear, how you look or influence anything you do for somebody else.
"Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you."
I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
Time is a slut.
"I'm on a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friend."
"The marks humans leave are too often scars."
"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations."
"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities."
"It's a metaphor, see: you put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do its killing."
"Maybe okay will be our always."
"The world is not a wish-granting factory."
"That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt."
"When the scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and tell me to try them on, I'll tell them to screw off, because I do not want to see a world without him."
"I lit up like a Christmas tree, Hazel Grace."
Gus knew. Gus knows.
Lonely, vaguely pedophilic swing set seeks the butts of children.
"I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't change it for the world. You gave me a forever in the numbered days, and I'm grateful."
I do, Augustus. I do.

The devil is real. And he's not some little red man with horns and a tail. He can be beautiful, because he's a fallen angel ...and he used to be God's favourite.
All monsters are human.
I had this idea that if you 'chose' to die... with me, you wouldn't be so sad. I never wanted you to see this. I'm so sorry, Violet.
Hi, I'm Tate. I'm dead, wanna hook up?
I tried to save you... I did. I tried to make you throw them up You threw up some, not enough. You took so many, Violet.
I like birds, too.
Normal people scare me.
The world is a filthy place. It's filthy goddamn horror show. There's so much pain, you know? There's so much.
Go away, Tate.
Don't you die on me Violet.
If you love someone, you should never hurt them.
Something has changed in you... towards me. You're distant, cold. I don't know what I've done, but I'll leave you alone from now on, if that's what you want. Is that what you want? You know why I'd leave you alone? Because I care about your feelings more than mine. I love you - there, I said it, not just on some chalkboard. I would never let anybody or anything hurt you... I've never felt that way about anyone.
I don’t know, it can’t all be shit, right? There’s got to be some place better, somewhere, for people like you, at least.
I painted it black. I know how you don't like normal things.
I used to come here… when the world closed in and got so small I couldn’t breathe. I’d look out at the ocean, and I’d think… "Yo, douche bag, high school counts for jack shit."
I'll wait ...forever if I have to.
I… hated high school. So I’d come here and I’d look out at this vast, limitless expanse. Then it’s like, that’s your life, man. You can do anything, could be anything. Screw high school. That’s… it’s just a blip in your timeline. Don’t get stuck there.
You died crying. I held you. You were safe. You died... loved.
You're the only light I've ever known. You've changed me.
"Love is never ugly."
"Only you can be you."
"Nothing is impossible."
"Follow Your Heart!"
"Stay grand for one more minute..."
If you ever wanna talk, just send me a PM and I'll answer, well then... read my stories and uh... bye? Omigosh I'm so awkward... bye :)
