I'm eighteen. I live in St. Louis, MO. I lost my mom March 2005 and I'll be graduating in May. I live with my step-dad and half sister. I'm half Chinese and half American. I like the Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd and my only purpose is to paint. I'm angry with the world but that's never changed. I wear glasses and I like purple and green. I don't fit in anywhere but I like company. My real father was a bad man and my mom is surely an angel. I have an unhappy history but I hate not smiling. My solace is writing. Have I painted a nice enough picture of myself for you yet?
