"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. Begin it well." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wish I lived in the 80's and that John Hughes directed my life. Instead, I am an 17-year-old moody teenager with an internet connection and a love-hate relationship with writing.

I have this disease called I-have-trouble-being-funny-so-I'm-awkward-and-sarcastic-instead. Just kidding. Disease is not funny. I am better with writing than I am with speaking. That only says so much about my writing, I guess.

"She says she's no good with words but I'm worse - barely stuttered a joke of a romantic stuck to my tongue." - Dance, Dance by Fall Out Boy

I like quoting songs. I like quoting from books and movies and tv shows, too. But, mostly, songs. Books, movies, tv shows, music, food, and ammo - that's what I'll be taking with me to my bunker when the Zombie Apocalypse starts.
I like weird things like zombies, pirates, and ninjas. I like Tim Burton movies not because they're weird, though. I like how tragedies affect me. I draw a lot of inspiration from the emotions that I get.

Okay, I like lists so here are a few horizontal ones. (I didn't like the look of bulleted kind.)

Bands I like: Jack's Mannequin, The Cure, Keane, All Time Low, The Killers, The Maine, Panic! At The Disco, and a few others.
Books I've read and liked: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, Vampire Taxonomy by Meredith Woerner, Looking For Alaska by John Green, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and a few others plus...
Book Series that I love: Harry Potter (I am a huge Potterhead), The Hunger Games, The Mysterious Benedict Society, and The Mortal Instruments.
Movies that I cannot stop watching: Juno, Across The Universe, Corpse Bride, Pirate Radio, Whip It, It's Kind of a Funny Story, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, and probably a lot more than I can remember.
TV Shows that I'm a fan of: Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Glee, Fringe, New Girl, Modern Family, Skins, True Blood, and some cartoons (90's Nickelodeon, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Adventure Time, Chowder, Phineas and Ferb, and Fairly Odd Parents).

That's pretty much it. Hope I didn't bore you.
Four for you, random Protagger!  You go, random Protagger!
