image7Hey, guys. If you are reading this, congratulations! You have reached the bowels of the internet! I hope you enjoy your stay!

This being my first post and all, I thought it would only be appropriate to introduce myself.

Hi, my name is Alexandra. I’m 16 years old and am a Junior in high school. I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX and am still living there today. The majority of my extra curricular time is spent dancing and teaching dance, as well as playing two instruments. In school, I am taking all AP and Pre-AP classes and am apart of the theatre program. I have been acting since I was four and it is another very big passion of mine.

But, where do books come in?

Well, around 8th grade year, a lot of new book-to-movie adaptations were coming out, like Mortal Instruments, Fault in Our Stars, Beautiful Creatures, The Host, Divergent, etc. And before that I had never been much of a reader. Yah, I had to read for school sometimes, but those were just God awful books that had no meaning regardless of how many metaphors or similes they used. Plus, my sister had always been the writer. Ever since she was a kid she wanted to write books for a living, and now that’s (sort of) what she is doing. She was always reading, just like my dad, and I saw no point to join them. Until Fault in Our Stars. Now, don’t get me wrong, there had been a select few before that, such as Mortal Instruments (how many times can I sat instruments in one post?) and The Host, but this was the book that opened the flood gates.

Now, I have come so far in those four year to have started a Youtube channel, cry myself to sleep because “feels,” and I have just purchased a new book shelf (hanging book shelf to be precise. Its fancy) and thought all of my problems were solved, only to find out that I still have another 30+ books that refuse to fit. So, you can see my dilemma. And with this new found passion for literature, I also had a new found passion for writing said literature. I mean, I had always liked to write, but, again, that wasn’t my thing. That was my sister’s. I was the actor. But, especially this past year in Sophomore English, I realized that I could excel in my writing, if I truly wished it.

So here I am. With a free account and a few fingers to type with. Let’s pray this works out.
