Who am I?
Well, literally, I am a hundred trillion cells.
To tell you the truth, I'm still working on that myself. Here’s what I do know:
I am a girl.
I am sixteen years young.
I am an Australian but with Serbian blood flowing rapidly through my veins.
And I am fiercely proud of it.
"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again."
I'm about average height.
Honey coloured short hair.
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
I can be sarcastic, but also very serious.
I can be logical, but also very random.
What can I say, I'm an oxymoron. x)
"If you are a student you should always get a good nights sleep unless you have come to the good part of your book, and then you should stay up all night and let your schoolwork fall by the wayside, a phrase which means 'flunk'."
I can be focused, or I can have my head in the clouds.
I might be growing older, but I’m not growing up. I’m still I child at heart.
I love legos, play doh, playgrounds and Disney classics.
"Frankly, I wonder who Frank was, and why he has an adverb all to himself."
-Jodi Picoult, House Rules
I like reading, writing, archery and animals.
As well as jigsaw puzzles, riddles and origami.
I enjoy tennis, basketball, taekwondo and swimming
I wouldn't be me without them.
"It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up."
-Charles M. Schulz
I'm working on making a thousand paper cranes, learning to count to ten in ten different languages, and juggling.
Just for the challenge. ^^
"Valkyrie patted Fletcher's arm. "Don't worry," she said. "If the bad man comes, I'll protect you."
"If the bad man comes," Fletcher responded, "I'll bravely give out a high-pitched scream to distract him. I may even bravely faint, to give him a false sense of security. That will be your signal to strike."
"We make a great team."
"Just don’t forget to stand in front of me the whole time," he said.
-Derek Landy, Death Bringer
I love travelling.
Anywhere and everywhere.
As a wise person once said, "I'm a worldly kind of girl."
"Erak smiled, with his mouth only. His eyes were as cold as the snow.
"You're a very amusing fellow," he told Halt. "I'd like to brain you with my ax one of these days."
"If you could manage to do it quietly, I'd almost welcome it," Halt said.
-John Flanagan, Ranger's Apprentice: Oakleaf Bearers
I like to using long words like 'sanctimonious', 'presumptuous' and 'malodorous'
My list of favourite books is about as long as Santa’s naughty and nice list
I prefer to think of Pluto as a planet, and tomato as a vegetable
"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I value my health, my family/ friends/ relatives/ pets and all the possibilities that are open to me, and all the privileges I get from living in such an amazing country.
Without it all, where would I be?
"'Robert the Bruce saw this spider making a web. And the spider kept failing but it didn’t give up. It went on like this for hours. Over and over.’
‘This is a really great story, Fergus.’
‘Shut up. Finally the spider managed to spin a web. And this taught Robert the Bruce that you must never give up too easily.’
‘And that’s how Robert the Bruce got a girlfriend?’
‘I don’t think so.’
‘Then what’s the point of the story?’
‘The point is, he went on to win a whole lot of battles because he wasn’t a quitter.’
‘Did he keep in touch with the spider?’
‘I think they remained close personal friends.'”
-Doug Macleod, Siggy and Amber
In the future, I want to be a good person, more than anything else.
I'd like to be described as creative, independent, confident and intelligent.
I'd like to continue learning, growing and aspiring.
And I never, ever
want to grow up.
"What's your name," Coraline asked the cat. "Look, I'm Coraline. Okay?"
"Cats don't have names," it said.
"No?" said Coraline.
"No," said the cat. "Now you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names."
-Neil Gaiman, Coraline
As I mentioned at the beginning, and the wise cat echoed, I'm not too sure who I am for now. So I’ll tell you my anagram name is Star P. Rivacoe, and to sum it up, I'm imperfect and happy.
"Being crazy isn't enough."
- Dr. Seuss
