Okay, it's Rebel here. I'm not 16, and I can't spell for beans, so bear with me please. You can call me Rebel, my friends call me Twitch, mean girls call me something that rhymes with that. I'm in 9th grade, I wanna be a writer when I grow up, so this is basically practice for me.
Things that make me happy:
Yeah I am a weirdo. Not really, I mean so far, just by looking at the list of things I love love love, you would think I was any normal 14 year old girl.
Things I HATE!!!:
And I could go on for years, but I won't cause it makes me look bad. Um.. let me tell you about myself, I guess. I play hockey, softball, can't play basketball for beans, I dance on a traveling competition team, used to play piano, quit after a year, I type really fast, like 121 wpm, I've had 3 poems published, I can't sing, my favorite shirt says "I'm so Freakin' Awesome!" my second favorite shirt says "Dream like you'll live forever, and live like you'll die tomorrow." my least favorite shirt is this button up my mom brought me for church. Gross. My favorite singer is either Lykke Li, and Priscilla Ahn, my favorite band is either Nine Inch Nails or Death Cab for Cutie, my favorite Heavy Metal artist is Marilyn Manson, though I do like the Black Veiled Brides, one of my favorite books ever is the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and I can't wait for the Evolution of Mara Dyer to come out this year, one of my favorite Maximum Ride FanFics is Diary of a Lovesick Mutant, my fave Percy Jackson is I'm So Sorry, I forget who wrote it. It's really good. My favorite color's purple, and I dont like orange, but you already knew that. I like to think I'm normal, and smart, and my mom likes to think that too, but that doesn't explain the book she's currently reading about how to keep up with your troubled DAUGHTER, and my little sister's only 6 so...

Favorite Percy Jackson and the Olympians Quotes
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt." Thalia
Ever had a flying burrito hit you? Well, it's a deadly projectile, right up there with cannonballs and grenades."
"Apollo?" I guess, because I figured nobody else could make a haiku that bad.
They asked me a lot of questions about you. I played dumb.
Was it hard?" Rachel and Annabeth
"Rachel: You're a half-blood, too?
"Wow," Thalia muttered. "Apollo is hot."
"All I could think of was that the teachers must've found the illegal stash of candy I'd been selling out of my dorms room. Or maybe they'd realized I got my Essay on Tom Sawyer from the Internet without ever reading the book and now they were going to take away my grade. Or worse, they were going to make me read the book. " Percy

"Dance you guys!" Thalia ordered. "You look stupid just standing there."

A friend will ask before eating something at your house, but a best friend will come into your house, barely say hello, and head straight to your fridge.
A friend will ring your doorbell and wait patiently, but a best friend will pound on your door incessantly until you open it fifteen seconds later and say, "This situation could have been avoided if you had simply left your door unlocked!"
A friend will use the common, "I think that shirt would look nice with jeans," suggestion, but a best friend will say, "YOU IDIOT! Why are you wearing a skirt with that shirt?!" and will then proceed to tear your closet apart looking for the jeans that are in your dresser drawer, which she, of course, already knew. She will then say, "Your room looks like crap. Clean up much?"

A stranger stabs you in the front
A friend stabs you in the back
A boyfriend stabs you in the heart
But best friends only poke each with straws
Does anyone like Death cab for Cutie as much as me. I mean, I have whole freaking playlist of like 102 songs by them, and my mom says it's weird that I like totally love Zoey Deschanel even though she left Ben Gibbard, the lead singer for DCFC, but I liked her before I liked him, so does it matter?
My mom also says that I don't have a one track mind, I always sing the song Numb by Marina and the Diamonds, and the first line is: One track mind like a goldfish, stuck inside my petri dish.She says that she fears that I'm ADHD because I can't stay on one topic for longer than about 30 seconds, and then when I asked her if she thought I had dyslexia she was like: "Really Alex?" and I was like "Well? Did you have an affair with Zeus or not?" I think I'm really ADD which is like ADHD except I'm lazy instead of hyper.
So, right now I'm gonna tell you about my life.
I'm 14, I'm 5'4", I'm mixed, African-American, and Native American, so my hair grows really fast but I keep it cut to my jaw bone. I have orange highlights, my dad let me get them while I was staying at his house, and my mom flipped out. I live with my mother, in Illinois, and my dad lives in West Virginia so I only see him over winter break, spring break, and the summer. I sometimes get to miss school for a week or two near my birthday, at the end of January, to go to his house. I'm currently thinking of getting rid of the orange and getting blue and white highlights, my mom approved of it, because my hair is really dark, the blue is barely visible and white's not as weird as orange to her. My favorite fruit is the cherry, so anything cherry flavored I'll probably eat. I do take part in some illegal things, sometimes. (Shhhh dont tell.) But I try not to make a habit of being bad. My principle says I let off this air of "Rebel without a cause-ness" because I wear a lot of black and other dark colors. That's how I came up with my screename, that, and I love Joan Jett, and the movie the Runaways was on when I was registering and Dakota Fanning was like: I'm sweet 16 and I'm a rebel queen. And I look real HOT in my tight blue jeans." and I was like, man, that's awesome.
I happen to have more guy friends than girlfriends, because I'm actually fun to be around and I don't just sit around and talk about shoes and crap, not that I don't love shoes, I just think there are better things to talk about in life. My best guy friend's name is David and he lives directly across the street from me. See, I've got the badass look, and he's got the weird nerdy kid look, and our other friend, who is a girl, Elizabeth, has the whole Gilly Hick's preppy Abercrombie and Fitch thing goin' on. Me and Dave are more, "Hey let's go to that pawn shop and look for cool watches and crap!" and Elizabeth's like: "I think I'll just go to Claire's" Elizabeth says I'm more hardcore than her, but she has her ear pierced a second time, and I don't because my mom won't let me until my birthday... next year... :(
I've got a thing for boys with piercings. I love them. The only thing I don't like are gauges (the earrings that put, like, a huge ass hole in your earlobe) tongue rings, (Cause I read this book called the Replacement, and metal or steel or something was like, deadly to the main character and he made out with this girl with a tongue ring and he got really sick) and I don't like nose piercings on guys. But if a super hot guy with live 5 ear piercings, a lip ring, and a bar in his eyebrow walked up to me and asked me out, I'd say HELL TO THE YES!!!!!!!!
I spend a lot of time in trees. I don't like bugs, and I don't really like having trees touch me unless I'm in the mood to climb a tree and have a tree touch me. In the park, I have a favorite tree that I always climb, and no one can see me in it, except David because his window is like, directed at it, but he barely looks out of it, because he's always outside, and usually knows that I'm in my tree. Her name is Bethlehem, and I also have another tree by my little sister's bus stop called Methelusa.
I like a lot of music, as stated earlier, so when David, Liz and I get together and walk around we all criticize music together. Liz likes R&B, David likes Pop, techno and stuff like Dubstep, and I like Indie, and Heavy Metal. But every once in a while I'll blast some Carly Rae Jepson, specifically Call Me Maybe, or 1D. I do like Miguel, Alicia Keys, and Erikah Baduh, Sade, Jill Scott and all that jazz, but I usually stick to my music. But I'm actually going through this faze right now. I'm totally into Radiohead and Dubstep, specifically Skrillex. My little sister called me a moron for liking Dubstep. Especially after I told her that Dubstep was for morons. I guess I'm a hypocrite.
We go to the mall, we usually don't have money, we just go to run around Gilly Hick's cause it's dark and they play funky music. We get kicked out of WalMart a lot because it's walking distance from our house. I'm not allowed to go to Meijer without an adult anymore cause I got kicked out of there so many times. I usually don't get sent to the office at school, not matter what anyone tells you, and I'm smarter than I look, with straight A's and in all advanced classes. And I'm the slacker on the team of AP kids. I've only had one detention, because I kept losing my ID to get on the bus, and I don't plan on having another one, not cause I'm scared, the teacher in the room was afraid of me, but because it was so freaking quiet and boring, and I couldn't even listen to music to pass the time. I've been sent to the office and guidance more times in the past 3 weeks than I had in 3 years, at one point I spent 4 hours out of the school day in the office.
I absolutely adore my little sister, Alicely, she's 6, don't tell anyone about how much I love my sister, I don't like to share that type of crap.
When i grow up I want to be a writer, if I can ever commit myself to writing a book. I currently have a FictionPress, so check it out, cause I love comments. I want to raise awareness about meningococcal disease when I grow up because it's not very well known, but it is incredibly serious, and I think someone should do something about it if they can.
Yep. That's Rebel. And trust me, I've got a cause. (Follow me on Instagram, @lexxthesharpie and Kik me at LexxTheSharpie too!!!)
