Wow. It's been quite some time since I last came here and updated my profile. I'm still cringing at some of the stuff belligerent 13-year-old me posted on here.

Hi, everyone! I'm CGreenleaf, but feel free to call me whatever you'd like. You can find me on under Nearing Midnight. I'm not really anyone special; just a Chinese-Canadian student that likes cats and birds.

While I love literature and especially writing, I unfortunately don't end up writing nearly as much as I'd like - between my extreme laziness and school workload, my mind just doesn't seem to gravitate much to writing nowadays. I don't post all that much on this account or on my Fanfic account, but I aim to change that.

I usually focus on writing short stories in order to submit them to competitions, specifically the Scholastic Art and Writing comp. I generally end up finishing two or three short stories a year for this purpose, though I hope to make that number higher every year. I'll probably post my submitted entries on here once the annual judging is over, and as such my posting will be very sporadic, with year-long gaps between each set of stories. :P

Alongside writing, I highly enjoy reading, and luckily have some more time for it than I do for writing. My favourite books of all time have to be J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, along with his other Middle-earth stories. Ever since I first watched the movies with my parents in sixth grade and read the books for the first time, I've been utterly hooked, and it will always be one of my favourite fandoms. Alongside LOTR, I have also fallen in love with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, as well as Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster.

I also adore a great deal of other books. Harry Potter, Watership Down, All Quiet on the Western Front, and the Warriors series come to mind, and I'm particularly fond of the latter due to the fact that it was the series that got me interested in literature in the first place. I also do plenty of online reading nowadays, the majority of which is fanfiction. You can see my favourites list on my Fanfiction profile or find me on AO3 under the username laegolas.

Music is another interest of mine. I play the trombone and some piano, and am currently learning to play the tuba. A lot of my life consists of band.

I guess that's pretty much it. I'm a pretty average person. :P

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
