More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I live for quotes. Writing is pretty much my rant page and stress reliever. I play the piano, sing, and obsessively follow gymnastics. I have been published three times through the America Library of Poetry's contest compilation: Accolades (2014) with Closer to the Sky, Eloquence (2015) with A Touch of Infinity, and Accomplished (2016) with Sanity. I am a college student, passionate, easily entertained, bisexual, a little bit insane, & left handed, which I have mixed feelings about because it is unique but also terribly inconvenient. I would love to be a kitten. I love writing, citrus fruits, July because it’s the most epic month, sunsets, Sarah Dessen, tree climbing, flying down ski slopes, Deb Caletti, gymnastics, Markus Zusak, squirrels (as you may have guessed), Jandy Nelson, and Maggie Stiefvater. PostPoems is as old as me.
If you're new here, welcome to this large dysfunctional amazing support group of messed up fantastic writers! :)

She feels in italics and thinks in CAPITALS. ~Henry James
A human life is a beautiful mess. ~Gabrielle Zevin
Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story. ~Jandy Nelson
A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people. ~Annie Leibovitz
Stars got tangled in her hair whenever she played in the sky. ~Laini Taylor
I think I like my brain best in a bar fight with my heart. I think I like myself a little broken. I’m ok if that makes me less loved. I like poetry better than therapy anyway. The poems never judge me for healing wrong. ~Clementine von Radics
I do not want to have you to fill the empty parts of me. I want to be full on my own, I want to be so complete I could light a whole city...and then I want to have you because the two of us combined could set it on fire. ~Rupi Kaur
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. ~Louisa May Alcott
We are all a little weird, and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. ~Dr. Seuss
Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one. ~E.B. White
Not all those who wander are lost. ~J.R.R. Tolkien
She had fallen in love so many times that she began to suspect she was not falling in love at all, but doing something much more ordinary. ~Jonathan Safran Foer
You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. ~Clementine von Radics
Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. ~John Green
Are those the only options? Nothing or forever? ~Sarah Dessen
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. ~Douglas Adams
If I decide to be an idiot, then I'll be an idiot on my own accord. ~Johann Sebastian Bach
We loved with a love that was more than love. ~Edgar Allan Poe
