Hey. I'm xxCassidyVictoriaxx. You may have previously known me as CassieCat97, which was my first penname. My penname now is more suitable, so I chose it instead. I'm just a teen who loves reading and especially writing. My real name is Cassidy, hence the penname, but I go by Cassie, hence the previous penname. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm usually facebooking. I'm attempting to make it an official sport. I would definitely win the gold medal if it was in the olympics. I love dancing too, and I may do soccer this year. Probably not, but maybe. I said that last year too so who knows?
I love reading. My favourite books are the Gossip Girl Series, the Twilight Saga, the Private Series, the Privilege Series, and above anything else, The Vampire Academy Series. Richelle Mead is an amazing author, definitely my favourite. I love her writing style. I'm extremely sad that she had to end the series and would rather Rose have ended up Adrian, but no matter who Rose ended up with, it was still amazing. Rose was such a strong character, making her very enjoyable to read about. And the Moroi and Strigoi world was very cool because it puts a twist on classic vampire tales. I can't wait to see where Richelle goes with the spin off series, Bloodlines.
Another thing I love is music. I would love to be able to play piano or guitar, but sadly, I can't. Taylor Swift is one of my idols. She has an amazing voice and even though most her songs are about love and heartbreak, they're very easy to relate too, even if you've never been in love. I also love Katy Perry, Keha, Eminem, Down With Webster, Rihanna, and Marianas Trench.
Family and friends are the two most important things in my life. My best friend is MrsCatLanLautner, both on this site and in real life. She's really kinda amazing, you'd agree if you knew her. My other close friends are Hailey, Maddy, Daria and Joenah. I have other close friends but these guys kinda top the rest. I have really close extended family about five hours from where I live who I am very close to. I always stay at my aunt's house during the summer and christmas break.
Poetry is my way of venting. I write whatever emotion I'm feeling. Most of my poetry will be sad and dark, because when I am happy, I end up not being able to write about it. Poetry is best when fueled by a strong emotion. I often start to write a poem and it turns out completely different from what I intended. Poetry's just a beautiful art, full of darkness and lightness, happiness and sadness. It depends on which way you want the poem to go. No one can write a poem for you, it's just something you have to do on your own.
I'm not going to pretned I'm some fancy, rich, published poet. No, but I still consider myself a poet. If you can write a poem, you're a poet. It doesn't matter if everyone loves it or if they hate it. That's the way things are in love. Some will love your poems; some will absolutely hate them with a burning passion. I've learned to ignore the people who hate and embrace the people who love.
So if you scroll down, you can see my story. It's called Academy of Dreams. Scroll down to see the summary.
I have another story, but I'm only about five pages in. I'm still toying around with titles. It may be called Shards of Glass or Shattered Glass. I haven't decided yet. Basically what happens is Rosaline Henderson's life is dramatically changed when both her parents are killed in a car crash, one she was in. Rose is left with scars: Both emotionally and physically. She misses the sound of her fathers soothing voice and the memory of her mother making her tea late at night, when they'd simply just sit and talk. Rose is forced to hide her true feelings about everything and is forced to move from Detroit to Palm Bay, Florida, moving in with a family she's only met once. Once in Palm Bay, she meets Jesse, the guy of every girls dreams. When Rose came to Palm Bay, she never thought she'd be falling in love. But as she and Jesse grow closer, is one of her biggest fears slowly approaching? Because everyone fears falling in love, whether they want to admit it or not. It's an inevitable, wonderful, scary, joyful, exciting, tragic part of life. But to reach happiness will Rose have to fall into depression first?
This story should be up soon. It's really easy to write and is far different than anything I've ever written before, which is a lot, because I've written a lot of stories that got deleted from my computer because sadly my computer is known to crash!
More About Me
I haven't done a lot in life. I just take life as it comes. I have no clue what I want to do with my life. But I'm okay with whatever it is as long as it involves writing. I want a husband and kids. I want not have financial problems. I want to live in a big house in New York City. Or maybe Toronto, either one works for me. Maybe I won't get any of these things. If I don't, I just want one thing: To be happy. I can cope with anything if I can still feel happiness. My problem is that I like to make myself depressed. I take things way to personally, dwell on stupid things. Someone could say "I like your hair but it was better when it was shorter" or something like that. I would jump to conclusions and think they were mocking me. I can't just accept the compliment. It's horrible and stupid, but I've gotta live with it.
Whenever someone asks me the question "Who are you?" I have one simple answer.
I'm just me.
