I haven't changed my bio in such a long time, so I thought I would do just that!

Hi, I'm Cascaded, but I used to be SearchingForYou. There's no big story behind my username, so don't try to read too much into it. I started writing about two years ago, and I will wholeheartedly admit, that I was terrible, awful, headbangingly horrific. But over time (hopefully) I got a lot better.

I won't bore you with the more mundane details of my life. You don't really need to know my shoe size, or what I eat for breakfast. I'm 21, and absolutely, hopelessly in love with writing, though as all great loves, I sometimes hate it too! But it is my passion, and I wouldn't change it any other way.

I am 21 years old and my home land is Great Britain, the land of Fish and Chips and Cornish Pasties, though I don't actually like them. I have a serious addiction to chocolate and caffeine, my favourite film is The Goonies, and my favourite band is The Fray. I am the (Sometimes not so) proud owner of a dog, a cat, and five guinea pigs, and the occasional spider, who finds itself unwittingly wondering into the path of a screaming human with a hoover pipe.

Don't like me? I don't care. I wasn't put on this planet to please others. I am who I am, and that will never change. I like to think I am a nice person, so if you don't like me? That's too bad. Not that I think anyone on this site is like that, I've been nothing but welcomed since my arrival a year or so ago!

I have started writing several pieces, mostly one-shots, but two or three long pieces that really are awful!
