Author has written 2 stories for Hunger Games.

I have too much to say, and I care too little to say it.

That's about it...

Unless you want to hear about all of my favorite things?

Of course you don't...But juuuuust in case...

1) Cello - I've been playing for almost six years (October 23rd is my cello-versary) _ Just recently played Hungarian Rhapsody by Popper at my recital. LOVED THAT PIECE.

2) Singing - I only discovered my love of singing my 8th grade year and tried out for the top choir (Chamber Choir - does Madrigals and pop tunes. It's kinda like Glee :P) at the high school my freshmen year and made it. Only four other freshmen made it out of a choir of 34, where almost 80 people auditioned. It's one of my proudest accomplishments.

3) Jazz - singing, playing, listening. I'm a trombonist in two different jazz ensembles. Love one more then the other, but don't tell my band director that ;)

4) Marching band - I play marching baritone (1st chair out of 16. Only two other girls in the entire section), and lemme tell yah that thing ain't light! Plus, you get really sweaty and, if you're fair skinned like me, burned to a crisp. Yayyyyy.

5) Reading/Writing- Can't decide which I like more, so they tie. I've been writing dumb little stories since I was seven.

6) Baking - I'm not spectacular at it, but it passes the time. And I'm kind of a cookie monster. I could probably eat an entire batch in one sitting. I mean, I'd vomit of course, but I'd still try.

7) Getting my picture taken - I'm vain. I like make up (even though I don't wear it on a normal day) and getting my hair done. So I like it when people snap pictures :-{D

8) Art - every aspectic. I love drawing. I'm not great with the pencil, but I mostly paint and photograph things.

9) Acting - I don't get many acting outlets. I've only done a couple plays in my time (I always get the overly dramatic characters ;D) But I'm an attention hog so I love the spot light and getting to show people that I'm not a complete ditz all the time. And I love pretending to be someone I'm not...that doesn't sound healthy, does it? Hahaha

10) Composing - I like writing songs, specifically dumb ones about real life situations. I like Revenge songs or songs about how I feel about guys. Because unlike most girls, I'm the type of person that will go up to the guy they like and say, "Hey, I like you. We should get coffee sometime." Instead of being an annoying teen and beating around the bush until you leave the poor boy emotionally confused and scarred.

That's not nice.

So my material is a...bit more forward then most songs on the radio. And sometimes my feelings are a little stalkerish...so that sometimes reflects in my music. I mainly compose for voice/piano and voice/ukelele. Sometimes it's just about how much I hate writing term papers or how we can prevent manatees from running into glass walls. Or about me cleaning my room, word for word.

It kind of comes to me ;)

11) Hiking - I hike EVERYWHERE. I LOVE NATURE. SERIOUSLY. I would marry it if I could, but I can't, so I won't.

12) Archery - I'll admit, I got the idea from dear old Katniss Everdeen, but I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it. I'm not fantastic, but I can hit things for the most part. Just don't throw me into the Hunger Games because I will die.

13) Science - only class besides my music classes and math I enjoy. I hate English (funny because I write stories?) but seriously. I even have a definition for it.

English Class: The one place your opinion is always wrong. ALWAYS.

Just can't win in there...I'm tellin' yah...

14) Basketball shorts - I have an addiction, I think. Or a very serious fetish. I don't know - but I need help.

15) Trash talking/Arguing - I am the most argumentative person in my family. They have no idea who I got it from, but no one wants play sports with me because I'm annoying as hell. Even if I suck at it, I will still verbally rape you.

Not even joking.

Or if I'm watching sports, I'll heckle the players.

"DAW. YOU MISS THE BASKET, FELLA? DAT'S OKAY. I BET YOUR MOM STILL THINKS YOU'RE A WINNER!"

Yeah...That's it...

READ MY STORY?

Please :-) It's the first Fanfic I've ever done.

Catching Fire And Burning Down by Tare-Bear reviews
The effect it has on him is nothing short of satisfying. But wrong, so, so wrong, and different and not me. It's the hunger. The side of me that I didn't think would be. That wants things like this; nakedness, beds, Peeta. And so it's not really me, who reaches out and grasps his wrist when he makes to stand and leave, it's the want. The fire begging for more fuel. *Rewritten*

Someone To Watch Over Me by ArthursCamelot reviews
