About me

Gender MALE
Location Orlando, FL, United States
Introduction To be able to step into a world where all the humans are replaced by metaphor, words, expression, catharsis, and imagery is quite possibly the greatest discovery I've ever made. In a nutshell, I adore poetry. I'm part of this group of young people in the nation, quite probably the planet, who hear that a certain substance will carry spells of delusion as a symptom, then proceed to get excited and wonder what types of stories their ambitious little minds will weave in the future. These are the true artists of my generation. As for me, the individual? I can describe myself in one word that contradicts itself.
Interests Writing, music, film, I basically live for these things.

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

I will become one of those fame-obsessed Pepsi Cola freaks that has no soul by the end of her long and prosperous not to mention rocky career trajectory. Move out the way Mommie Dearest.
