I love a variety of books, but the one series that I really love is Percy Jackson and the Olympians. This series sparked my interest in Greek Mythology. I admired Percy Jackson and the many other characters Rick Riordan created, and I ate up each story. It also helped start my love of writing. From Percy to Carter and Sadie to Magnus to beyond, I'll always love this line of mythology books.
Owl City is another music group that I'm a big fan of, and technically, it's just one person, being Adam Young. The first song by him was the extremely popular "Fireflies." I was captivated by the imagination and lightness of the music, and I now love fireflies and other bio luminescent things for some reason, but I don't think those two points connect. Most of his music makes me want to explore a world he's created, one with daisies pushing through floor and fireflies are my companions in a strange, mystical world.
Space is very interesting to me. Though I don't particularly like learning every last detail, I love its vastness and beauty. In fact, I know very little on space at all. Rather, I enjoy the gorgeousness of space and learning about constellations. Lyra is my favorite constellations. Since most constellations came from Greek myths, I also gained a love for Greek mythology.
Dodie Clark is one of my absolute favorite musicians as well as youtuber. A lot of her music is relatable, she has a beautiful voice, and you can hear the emotion and her personality through the songs. When I'm sad, especially, I just turn on all of her songs on repeat. That type of upbeat music just lifts my mood by 12 feet. This song in particular is a cute little tune about a crush she had, and it was one of the first songs I had heard by her. From there, I had found my comfort music.
"Because You'll Never Meet Me" is one of my favorite books ever. It's about the back and forth letters between Ollie; a boy allergic to electricity, and Moritz; a boy with a pacemaker and no eyes. It shows how their two stories, both so different, somehow connect. You can hear how Ollie progressively worse in health and mood, while Moritz gets somewhat happier. This is the first in the series, and though I haven't read the second one, I'm sure it'll be great.
One large component of my life is music, so being introduced to musicals was a life changing event. It was on a cruise ship, and they were performing Legally Blond. I loved the odd story, the lights and the acting just felt so much more ALIVE than when you watch a movie. Now I prefer songs from musicals and such over mainstream music. Along with that, I now like acting. The only downside is that the songs in musical are much more meaningful than radio music, so there's a higher chance of me crying.
Since I was young, I've been on and off for piano. I forgot why, I only vaguely remember being traumatized or something probably less strong of a word. However, I've finally been nonstop at learning, and have been for around two years. Most of the time, I like learning Disney and video game themes on the piano, and I've been thinking about trying the ukulele just for the aesthetic. (I'm beginning to see that a lot about me is music oriented.)
My cousins in Pennsylvania have a pool quite similar to the one in the picture, making it the prime spot for family reunions. We have barbecue, play weird pool games, use the Wii, and occasionally light fireworks. As the night creeps over the house, we'd still be out, having s'mores and having gossip for the teens and magical games for the kids.(I played the magical games.) During the school year, I still remain swimming in a swim team, though it doesn't have the same feel. It's still kind of fun.
California is the home to many things; Hollywood, Disneyland, vegetarians. However, it is also home to two of the best things in the world: beaches and family. First off, a lot of my family on my mom's side live on the West Coast, so when we have the time, we like to visit. And I do have cousins here as well, the ones in California can be fun to. Plus, I love beaches, and California is abundant in them. California is just a nice place in general, and I'd move there if I had to live away from here.
Disney has been in my life since the beginning, and what it produced influenced my art style, my way of thinking, and even my name. The music in its movies is phenomenal, the stories are amazing, and it produced so many of my favorite things, such as the Emperor's New Groove, Gravity Falls, and so many more! Disney is embedded in my childhood, and it'll stay as one of the few producers of the movies I actually watch. (This is because I prefer cartoons over real life.)
