AboutI am Alicia. I am sixteen, and a junior at Creekside High School. I have been writing since I was seven, but I've much more serious about it in the last five years. I really want to be an author, when I'm done with school.
I really want to go to college, and I would like to study a couple different things. Mostly I want to study Creative Writing. But then there's also English Literature, Journalism, LGBT Studies, Philosophy, Classical Studies, Social Psychology, Metaphysics, Ancient History, and Cultural Studies. >.< I have varied interests! But I can't go because I didn't get the grades my freshmen and sophomore years. I'll have to stick with JC, which blows because I have goals.
I have various problems; with authority, and let's just say promptness. I've actually been considered a truant by my school, since sixth grade. I am much better now though, and for the second time in four years I am passing the majority of my classes.(Update: as of this year ((2011-2012)), I am only failing ONE class, which is ROCKIN'. A's and B's in everything else!!) And I've been excused from court, so I don't have to go unless I royally fudge up my attendance. Or you know, do something stupidly illegal and get arrested. which is why I am a hermit, all my friend do that crap.
I am not atheist, but take my beliefs from Paganism and Buddhism/Hinduism. I like to research all kinds of diffferent religions, and the philosophies behind them. I also like researching different cultures and places for stories. And because I think it's cool to know all these weird little things about people and places not many care about, or things that are just plain weird. Like Queen Victoria hated pregnancy, thought breast-feeding was disgusting, and that newborns were ugly. But she had nine children.
I love all kinds of music, I'm into 70's punk, the singer/songwriter type songs, you know the acoustic stuff, I really like that too. Weird combo, but I friggen love it. I also like W-rock, which is Wizard Rock, based off of Harry Potter. And virtually any other genre; classical, rock, pop, Irish, J-Pop... I listen to it all, depending on my mood. And soundtrack music, love it; mostly Harry Potter and Legend of the Seeker. And after three years of avoiding it, I'm addicted to Glee. I blame Darren Criss, and Chris Colfer. (KLAINE<3) I'm more of a Colferette though (I have a signed Land of Stories!! Love Chris).
I had a three-year-old rat named April, who died February 3, 2012. I had my two little boys, the rabbit Knubbs, so named because before he was mine someone cut off both of his hind legs, and a beta fish named Riko and they have died too. I just have my cat, my fat boy Appie, named after Apolloduros from Sherrilyn Kenyon's 'Acheron'. (his pic is on the top right of my pro--> wink
I used to always wear this skull beanie; with a safety pin on the string thing with soda tabs, and I had a gay pride ribbon, but it unraveled and so I don't have that anymore. Still, do wear the beanie, just not every day, because I used to hide behind it, oversized hoodies, and my hair. I also have this pair of converse that I painted with nail polish, I call them my pride shoes; on one shoe it's the gay pride rainbow and on the other is Ravenclaw colors. (Pottermore ID; DawnDraconis8515) I have another pair of black shoes, that I just finished painting a pride rainbow on the rubber toe-thing. So happy now; I've waited a year to paint them.
I love writing. NaNoWriMo is one of the best things on the internet.
