I'm only sixteen, but I have a countdown towards my 18th birthday. I have more brains than you probably think I do, but I'm forgetful and occasionally say things without thinking. I ask too many questions, even ones I know the answers to. I know what I do and what I don't believe in, but I do have an open mind and I'll listen to every word you have to say about anything. I'm terrified of driving. I've had my permit since September but I refuse to get behind the wheel. I wake up early almost every morning but never spend that extra time doing something productive. I'll invade your personal space. My fish's name is Hemingway and he lives in a giant Tupperware bowl on my bookshelf until I can get him a real fish bowl. My fish died less than 24 hours after I bought him and I cried. I don't like being completely barefoot so I wear socks all the time. I leave my contacts in overnight for days at a time, and I'm concerned that they may dry up in my eye and blind me. But I'm still too lazy to take them out before I go to sleep. To clear things up, I am 1/4 Japanese, not Chinese. I'm the receptionist at Fantastic Sams on Mobile Highway and I work at least five days a week. I have a completely rational fear of paper cuts and needles. I know this boy who tickles me and scares me during scary movies and I always roll over so I'm not facing him and I tell him that I don't like him, but that's a lie. I'm somewhat of a picky eater. You have to do a lot of convincing to get me to try something new. I don't understand why people are usually surprised when they find out I've stayed sober my whole life. I've realized that I've never had my heart broken, only bruised. No matter how hurt I've felt in the past, I'm happy now. I believe in second chances. I believe in one millionth chances. If you call me while I'm sleeping and I answer, do not expect me to remember what we talked about. I had plans for myself and for my future but I'm starting to turn in a new direction so we'll see what happens. I hate school more than the average student hates school, I can assure you of that. I'm terrible at multitasking, I'm way too easily distracted. I make weird faces. I'm not interesting enough to make this paragraph worth reading, so I'll stop here.
