"There's only one thing that can make them stop hating you. And that's being so good at what you do that they can't ignore you." (Graff; Ender's Game) ____________________________ "Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me." (Bella Swan;New Moon) I'm a fun lovin' gal! Favorite things to do: read, write, listen to music, hang with friends, watch movies, go shopping, and chat. I like bright and bold colors. My personality is reflected through my actions and my clothes. :) I'm Carlyn! I'm 16, currently a sophomore in highschool. Writing is my passion. My favorite bands are posted at the bottom of my about me. So are my favorite books, and my favorite movies. I'm currently writing a book titled The Realmer's Necklace, but I will not be posting that on here. I just started writing stories this year, so please be patient with me. It's not something I've done my whole life, but I plan to do it for the rest of my life. I want to become a published author. I love God. I love my friends and family. Music inspires me and books turn the cogs of my imagination constantly. I love getting lost in a book and writing...it helps me get away from my chaotic life. Spongebob Squarepants is my favorite cartoon. I love The Twilight Saga!!! I like it when you pronounce my name correctly the first time. I sing in the shower. (: I'm happy with my life but, like everyone, I have my complaints. I love the smell of Barnes & Noble. Being rude to anyone around me is a no-no.The tellytubbies scare the crap out of me. Tacos are my favorite food. Chick-Fil-A lemonade is the best drink of all time. I'm always bored. I like to think that I'm unique. _____________________________________________ Check out my stories: Ruby Red: http://www.protagonize.com/story/ruby-red The Specials: http://www.protagonize.com/story/the-specials ______________________________________________ Favorite Bands: Blue October, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, The Killers, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Lights, Paramore, Hey Monday, The Academy Is, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, The Beatles, Chopin, The Who, The Sex Pistols, The Smiths, Ben Folds, Bright Eyes, Mozart, The Cab, Aslyn, My Chemical Romance, The Used, The Mitch Hansen Band, Cobra Starship, Death Cab For Cutie, The Postal Service, The Twilight Soundtrack, Fall Out Boy, Beethoven, A Fine Frenzy, Jack's Mannequin, The Ramones, Panic! at the Disco, Fun, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, The Fold, Jars of Clay, Mika, Mindless Self Indulgence, Modest Mouse, PlayRadioPlay!, Plain White T's, Taylor Swift, Wolf Parade, and MANY more.
