"I'm FINALLY reading John Green's "The Fault In Our Stars", I'm still in chapter four but so far i think it's amazing, if there is ANYONE who hasn't read it i suggest you do.I'm also slowly reading "And…"
"Currently re-reading The Count of Monte Cristo. I usually read it again maybe once or twice a year. Its funny how each time I read it something different about the story appeals to me. The first time it was the revenge plot because I had just gone…"
"I'm rereading Les Miserables. Les Miserables is such a great story. I've been absorbed in it all this week. On Thursday I got home about 6:30/7 and read straight until 10:30. It felt wonderful--I didn't have the distraction of the…"

I'm a Language/English/Music/Random Question/Useless Facts Nerd :)
I go to boarding school, and I'm going to spend a school year in Italy this coming year, which of course I am ecstatically excited about. I read a ton, and I hang out on the internet probably more than I should.. I love rockclimbing, but I don't do it very often. Ditto with backpacking. I ride horses a lot, during the school year for the most part, and some of my friends and I drive a horse-drawn carriage around on occasion (I did it as a school sport for a season and totally loved it--we have two Percheron draft horses). Languages and linguistics are awesome; I speak pretty good Spanish--although I've lost my fluency in the last year, which is annoying--my French is okay, and I'm going to start taking Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian :). I also sing all the time; I'm a high soprano, and singing is my passion, you could say. Love it love it.
I never have any idea what to say in About Me's. The whole idea seems kind of self-selling to me... and there's not much of a chance anyone could really get to know me through reading anything I could tell you about myself, so I suppose I'll stop now.

hi :) I sent a friend request. Maybe you want to become my email pal? I'm 15 years old and I'm from Germany. I'm gonna move to Santa Barbara next September for a High School year. I noticed that you are also doing a year aboard :) best wishes and dftba ^___^
I'm so glad you're having a great time and that you got a good host family to stay with. It sounds amazing! Feasting on Italian goodies and getting lost in Rome should be lots of fun. I shall enjoy your adventures vicariously. :D
