Hi! I'm SmilesSaveLives, but because I'm not giving you my real name, you can just call me Smiley. =D I'm a girl, just so you know. If you're on my profile, then I've either reviewed one of your stories or you've read one of mine. Before I got an account, I'd reviewed under a bunch of different pen names, like pEaCeLoVeUnIcOrNz, RandomGirl123, StephaimForever, SmilesSaveLives, and a couple more.
Behind the pen name
There are three main reasons why my pen name is SmilesSaveLives:
1) There was an actor who came to my school and preformed these five stories that literally made everyone cry. He was seriously fantastic. Then he told us a true story about a man who decided to commit suicide, but he said that if one person smiled at him on his way to the bridge, he wouldn't jump.
He jumped that day. How many people did he see on his way there? And not one of them smiled. I told the actor that I would never forget his preformance, and I haven't. So now I'm SmilesSaveLives.
So smile at a stranger today, and you just might save a life. =)
2) I also tend to smile way too much (if that's even possible). =D
3) I would die if I ever went a day without smiling. It's what keeps me going, even when I'm down in the dumps.
