"The most wonderful thing in life it to be delirious and the most wonderful type if delirium is being in love"

- Yevgeny Zamyatin

Hi. I'm Alexandra. I'm 18, live in NYC, and enjoy writing. I used to be known as The Tree of Life and Shadow, but that was back when I was emo and depressed and in lust. Now, I am neither of those things, so I figured a change of name was in order. I shall the miss the name, but it's time to move on.

I love to read, write, listen to music, and watch movies.

I don't like physics.

Don't read my poetry. It's depressing and kinda horrible. Except for "The Murder", which is cool, if I do say so myself. "First Kiss" isn't too bad either. everything else is shit.

My stories are better, and I'm going to make a fantastic effort to update them. I can't make any promises though, so bear with me.

Listening to: Pandora internet radio. Go there. Seriously.

ALSO: check out my favorite authors and stories. there are some really cool people out there: RoseLife, The Suicide Nation, Jack Argyle, and a whole bunch of others! READ THEM TOO!! Why? Because I said so.

2.9.2010 I'm a loser. I admit it. I haven't updated in months. I feel like all those other people who've abandoned Fictionpress to its doom. Those people upset me. I am going to do everything in my power to post more. Poke sometimes so I don't forget :)
