In my free time I can be found reading romance novels, rollerblading, singing really loudly (and off-key) in public and watching copious amounts of television--strictly for artistic inspiration, of course.

“You don't have to be anyone but yourself.”
Marni Bates, Awkward

“That's always the worst: the not knowing. Because then you're stuck with a hundred questions no one can answer.”
Marni Bates, Awkward

“...I never would have seen Chelsea reach up, take Logan's face in her hands, and kiss him. So the off again was definitely on again. And I knew then that Patrick was very wrong about my heart, because if it had actually been an encyclopedia I could have watched it all with perfect composure.”
Marni Bates, Awkward
