"The only bad opinion is one that defines 'bad' incorrectly." I'm feeling a little like Lazarus, coming back to the site after so long away... anyway, not too much has changed as far as what I have written below. Hello! I am just a kid from America who loves to write, and frankly I consider myself one of the luckiest people on earth. Really, though, I do. If I made a "top 100 world's luckiest people" list, I would put myself at around 76 or so. I live in a beautiful community with the friendliest people you'll ever meet; I go to a more-than-decent school and have been very successful not only in academics but also in sports. I have a wonderful family with lots of siblings who are also my friends (which I have found is quite a rare thing...) My parents have only ever fought once since I can remember. I have to say, that is one of the reasons I consider myself so lucky. To have my parents divorced... well, let's just say it would drop me down to about 2 billionth on that list. People say I am a hard worker (even though I don't really see it as much myself). I guess I feel like God has given me so much to be thankful for that I shouldn't ever do less than my best, never do anything unless it is with all of my willpower and effort. Anyway, that just about wraps it up for me. I write for fun, to relieve stress, or to convey a message. Often if you read my works actively enough you'll be able to see it. I am always open to criticism (constructive or otherwise) and am really happier to have someone comment something bad about my work than to have it go unnoticed. I realize many of you face the same problem, so if you want me to read and comment on something of yours let me know! I'll be glad to read through it. So you're still reading, eh? One last piece of advice from me-- whenever you see someone and begin to judge them based on that first impression, stop right there. Often you'll find that the person you are judging based on a single glance has it much harder in life than you do. Give people a chance, and they will for you too. Well, I'm beginning to ramble, so I'll end this here. Have fun on Protagonize, and have a good day!
