"A pessimist is a person who has had to listen to too many optimists." Hi! ..I feel as though I should write something more than just that, so I guess I will. My name is Annie, and I'm constantly busy! If I wasn't, I'd probably be on this website more.. but with Marching Band, Ski Club, Theater, Science Olympiad, Academic Team, and... well, school... it gets quite difficult. I don't know if you've noticed, but I haven't written very much.. but actually, I have. Recently, I went and deleted every story or poem I wrote. It felt very empowering. Only a few collaborations are left. For some reason, when I drink coffee, I feel the need to clean everything around me. Favorite bands: Frank Sinatra, The Strokes, Andrew Bird, The White Stripes, Metallica, Modest Mouse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wolf Parade, and Zee Avi. I usually listen to a few of these bands when I write. I'm starting to add more onto some abandoned works, just for the heck of it. So if anyone is interested in having me as a collaborator, I'm all for it! Just let me know. And if you have a story you'd like me to read, I'll check it out, since I always appreciate feedback myself. What I'm writing right now has not been posted.. I'm waiting until I actually finish something to put up here. Abandoned little stories annoy the hell out of me, if they're written by me. I can be horribly redundant when I'm writing redundantly.
