Okay, so I think it's time for another update. I am now a college grad, working on a one year professional program. I'm now 21 years old and am so excited to be almost done with school, it's kind of of been bad for my study habits. Hopefully, I will get back to writing soon...I've been incognito for about 8 months or so.

Something really random is that I absolutely love diseases (weird, I know). School takes up most of my time...I spend a good 30 hours a week studying, but I do enjoy writing when I have time. I was an English major, but I switched because I was bored and I can't just keep churning out papers every single night. Someday, I hope to travel the world, but that's a long ways in the future.

Here are some random facts about me:

-I love reading fiction, nonfiction, textbooks (not really), and the newspaper...basically anything that interests me. For literary fiction, my favorite book is Little Women. Also, The Little Prince is a good book. Lord of the Rings, Little House on the Prairie...I guess I have a liking for books that begin with L. Anything by the Thoenes are also amazing! But they don't start with L. Ha, so funny thing, I also like the book, The Last Song. Apparently the L trend continues.

-Writing is a way to express my emotions; my favorite style is non-fiction...hard to write, but really interesting (except this one essay I read about peacocks, but I digress). Fiction is fun to write, but I haven't really written any except for this site. Now, all I get to write are scientific papers.

-I want to live in a foreign country after I graduate. Medical missions here I come!

-I'm considering PA (physician's assistant) school in the future.

Favorite quotes:

- "One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes." ~ The Little Prince

- "You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed." ~ The Little Prince

- "You have bewitched me body and soul." ~ Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice 2005 movie adaptation. (Not really a fan, but I love this quote!)

- "Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity." ~ Gilda Radner (This was my senior quote!)

I have a bunch of ideas for many ideas, so little time. As for reading fanfiction, funny thing is, I usually only read fanfiction about books, shows, and movies I haven't seen, which is kind of the opposite of fanfiction, right?

One thing: I'm not big on getting an M rating, so you probably won't find any of that sort of content in my stories.

Oh yeah, I'm a Beta Reader now, whatever that entails, so if you want me to completely rip up your story (joking) with all my punctuation corrections, then feel free to ask.

If you have read this entire thing, then I commend you because it's probably the most boring bio ever! I mean, who writes about how much they study?

I'm always up for talking to people, so if you want to know anything else about me, then feel free to write me a message. I will answer you back!

More Than A Memory reviews
Another one of my ideas on what happens after the book ends....Multi-chaptered. Prologue, then begins immediately after book epilogue. Rated T for later chapters.

Sometimes the perfect endings can't be found, and everything is full of uncertainty. But it's these experiences and the people we get to know along the way that make life worth living. Mostly Jay/Erika and Bradin/OC. Chapter 14 is now up!

If there was one thing she regretted, it was that she never got the chance to say goodbye. "True love never dies," she whispered aloud. "I wish I could believe that was true...."
