Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
Hello, my name is Haley, and I am a very big Harry Potter fan, and just a huge fan of books in general. Everyone needs to read the Saffron Kitchen, by Yasmin Crowther. It just might be better than Harry Potter. Maybe.
New Year's Resolution for 2008: Exercise more. Sleep more. Laugh more. Do laundry more often. Be more organized. Maybe I should have said Resolutions?
I like reading, listening to music, hanging out with my mom and sisters and friends, texting like a maniac, watching reality tv, going to the beach, shopping.
WHY THE CRAP DID KATIE HOLMES RUN THE NEW YORK MARATHON WITHOUT A BRA? Does she want to be like the women you see on National Geographic, who have saggy boobs because they can't afford bras? She has mucho millions, hello!
I like way too many favorite television shows to mention. I am like a reality TV addict: The Hills, Project Runway, Real Housewives of Orange County, Whose Wedding Is It Anyway, Top Chef, America's Next Top Model...and then there are shows like Gilmore Girls, which I have watched hundreds of times, and it never gets old!
I truly do believe that it's better to have like, three real friends who are always going to be there for you and whom you can tell anything, than a huge group of giggling, gossipy girls that you feel like you're always hiding stuff from. Don't get me wrong, be friendly to everyone, even those who annoy you, but that doesn't mean you have to be friends with everyone.
My sister's dog, Edie/Edith when she's in trouble, who is practically my niece, thinks that she's a lapdog, when in reality she is an 80-lb Rottweiler.
You know what I've come to realize, the more I hang around guys and get to know them? The really hot or cool or totally drool-worthy ones very often turn out to be complete idiots, which just makes it that much funnier when girls are going crazy over them before they've even said hi to them...but then again...
My student council advisor scares the crap out of me and the other officers. And, sadly, when I think of school, I think of all the time I spend in the Student Center and all my jobs for SG, rather than any of my actual classes, like Yearbook or History or whatever.
Btw - I totally knew Lindsay was a lesbian, and none of you believed me!! All I have to say now is, what now suckas?? chyah!
As for that whole thing with Miley Cyrus making out with a girl or whatever, worse things have happened in Hollywood, but sweetheart, people questioning your actions isn't "Satan attacking". It's called growing up.
OMG! Why is a whole cable channel devoted to a bunch of guys hitting little white balls with silver sticks? Although my own father LOVES the Golf channel, so I really can't complain that much...and it's playing in the background right now. Huh. Wait, maybe that's ESPN.
Some Really Cool Quotes: (I love all of these quotes, and try to let their wisdom--or sometimes idiosy--flow through me, but the quotes in bold are the ones that I really try to live by)

There's this quote that I really like, but I have to tell you the story behind because that's just how I am: So I was taking this placement test in school to see if I'll be the next Bill Gates or Oprah or Kim Kardashian or whatever, and there was this passage where the author is describing all the challenges and adversity he or she faces, and then they start to doubt themselves and think who am I to try to change the world, but then they snap out of it and the line that I will always remember is "And so I just went doggedly to work, and therein lies whatever salvation I may attain". But the stupid test didn't say who the author was, and I've googled it and everything, but I've yet to find he or she.
