I’m fifteen, female, and I act either older or under my age depending on who you ask, and my sugar level at the time. I stare off into space at school, and occasionally insert a languid arm into the air to make a brainless comment. I daydream constantly and try staving off my math homework as long as possible. Scribbled lines of poetry on crumpled pieces of scrap paper reveal a mind that is easily distracted and hopelessly disorganized. Oh well -

"I can make words

blossom on a page,

conjure butterflies out of ink;

blue skies

shimmer in the wake

of my pen."

And frankly, I guess that's quite enough.
Yes - and I believe in pie in the sky - waiting for me by and by.

Eat lots of chocolate. It's good for you.
