"Out of this same light, out of the central mind, We make a dwelling in the evening air, In which being there together is enough." -Wallace Stevens The name's Lauren. I'm seventeen, currently treading through my last year of high school. I'm SoCal born, living in a horribly hot, truly tiny, muse murdering desert. Did you like my alliteration there? Honestly, it isn't that terrible. If I am not writing you can probably find me reading, or more likely playing a game on Xbox. I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a "gamer." I don't think I've earned that title yet. I like almost all genres, but my love is Paranormal Romance or Sci-Fi. Anything whimsical will do. I'll read anything so long as it's recommended to me, or it catches my attention. I'm currently in the process of starting a blog purely for writing, and book reviews. If you're interested in possibly being a part of it, let me know. Here are a few tid bits about me: I love writing (if that wasn't obvious). I don't know what my "label" might be, but I've always wanted to be seen as an "artistic soul." I like cardigans. I like them a lot. I have an obsession with tasteful tattoos. I want to cut my hair off; I haven't had the nerve to do it, but I half-assed it once. I love my family, and they will always remain important to me. I have a loving boyfriend who supports me and for that I am grateful. I have many pet peeves, which include nail biting, people who are fake, and people who copy me (seriously, don't do that. Let's try and be original here.) I am also a grammar nazi. PLEASE DON'T UNLEASH THE BEAST IN ME. I really am a caring, compassionate, open-minded person, and I love talking to anyone. I value education highly. That's about it, folks.
