"“Hearts were meant to be broken. You just have to learn from your mistakes. Don’t live a lie… and don’t do bad things. Sometimes, you just get into something, but then you screw up… or they screw up… for just one second, you close your eyes, you blink… when you open up and look around, you lost your heaven…” --- Lionel Stephens" FEATURED STORY: 3/27/13 - 5/6/13 FOR:The Infection: Remastered (can be found at: http://www.protagonize.com/story/the-infection-remastered) Thank you for this amazing award! I am IhateCEDA, novel/book writer, philosopher, Social Studies fanatic, poet, weird person, and the master of making you feel depressed because I make even the most normal characters have something tragic happen! But I do believe in happy endings no matter how tragic the path is. I looove writing. I first started out making a full-out book at age eight about a fictional Sonic the Hedgehog knock-off character, and though I look back to see how stupid it was I still love the hard work I put into it at such an early age. Since then, writing has become a part of me, usually as a distraction from a hard day's work in school. In my past, I have done works such an an unfinished Mario Bros. fanfic, various poems and short stories! Mainly, I am a poet, writing about tragedy, triumph, and other sorts. I view life as a realist, that being a person who looks at things as they are and not in different angles (not necessarily meaning I am pessimistic). I hate politicians! I believe in the Road of Forever. My writing is fueled by outside inspiration and random ideas that pop into my head (giving me unbearable writer's blocks on occasion). I also like to take any life experiences and incorporate them into whatever I'm working on. Being fun, random, and weird is my life, and that is who I am; a combination of wonderful things! I am a fan of many things, and they are all very awesome! The list includes bands in the best music genre ever: metal! (ex: Symphony X, In Flames, Disturbed) amazing shows like Suits, movies (The Dark Knight Rises) and games (Left 4 Dead 1 and 2). What makes me a fan of something? It's hard to say. I generally like things that I catch onto quick, but they also have the quality to stick to me for more than a month. I usually pass these fandoms up quickly, but I don't entirely forget about them. There's so many great musical artists, shows, movies, and games that you can't be a fan of one particular one for forever, hmm? Thank you YouTube for Full Album posts! I joined this website in the hopes of getting my work out in the open; I have tried previous websites, but they have failed me, so I have moved here as sort of a 'last resort'. I'm pretty under-the-radar, so reading my profile is certainly a hard thing to accomplish. So far I am writing primarily poetry (check out my complete poem works here: http://www.protagonize.com/poem/poetry-my-complete-works) though I do have quite a few story ideas in the works. I am always open to collaborating with fellow writers, so don't be afraid to contact me about that. About how my writing works: (*Usually*) I tend to write stories and poems with the Mature tag. This does not mean that there are some... distrubing (Hollywood)... themes in it. Often it just means there is some curse words in there, since in real life, cursing is commonplace, and therefore must be implanted in a story for realism. If you do not like cursing, enable the profanity filter, which is in your Update Profile page under Privacy, Language & Licensing. This will censor curse words. Do this so that this little detail prevents you from reading my stories! Most of my (actually of my) poems, stories, etc. are written on Microsoft Word documents, then copy-pasted onto Protagonize. It makes it easier to save my work for later and just feels easier than on the site. I wouldn't consider myself a fast worker, and I'm pretty slow on a normal day. However, I make up for this with chapters that are usually pretty long compared to most of the ones you'll see on here. Before you challenge me, you will never defeat me in my own game! Just ask starwarsfreak... For now, Drama has ended for this school year with our program rocking out The Drowsy Chaperone, a modern musical. It was an amazing experience! Everyone did what they were told and everyone was super-charged with energy. I plan on continuing my acting career in high school next year, hopefully coming better with each passing year. Currently, I have a lot of free time, and I have no idea what to do with it. Music is a huge part of my life. I go through phases a lot. I remember that when I was in my early middle school years / elementary school, I liked Scatman John and more pop-ish bands. Currently, I'm in a very heavy metal-oriented phase, metal, or just brands of rock music in general (EX: death metal, melo-metal, screamo, etc.). This includes Symphony X, Fear Factory, Elvenking, In Flames, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Insomnium, Killswitch Engage, Stratovarius, Avantasia... the list is huge! And to those who think metal is talentless garbage, go play a guitar! Movies are dying in terms of quality, so it's important to like the good ones that come along. I love The Princess Bride. I also like the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, The Avengers, The Green Hornet... and a heck of a lot more that I am far to lazy to type up, so deal with it fool! D: Reading? Well, I'm pretty different from the rest in terms of that. I don't like venturing out to grab a book, but I take reccomendations and I look at what's trending. There's too many thingss to choose from that I dare not attempt :P I often read history books since I plan on becoming a Social Studies teacher as my future career choice. Currently I am reading a book about the WWII aircraft carrier The Bunker Hill. Welp, that's about all for me. Unfortunately, due to the lack of popularity in Minecraft Classic, a multitude of servers have been shutting down. This list includes Aeries Freebuild. Unless the server reappears sometime in the future, I do not think I will be able to upload any of the builds I made on that particular server. For now, my account is inactive. As they say in Spain, hasta luego!
