Paulina, what college are you going to apply to? I want to go to Cal State or Victor Valley College.

Hi Sarah and Paulina! I love rollercoasters! I also like acting, singing, and playing the piano. When I graduate I want to major in english because I love writing, I'd also like to be a music teacher or a musician. I am totally blind but I have a little bit of light perception but it doesn't really do anything for me, but it's better than absolutely nothing, rite? Oh, and it's okay that you spelled my name wrong, a lot of people do because it's kind of long. My friends just call me Brie.

My favorite rollercoaster is probably, Top Thrill Dragster at Ceder Point in Ohio.

Desperation (the Wolf Man 1941 score) Composed By Frank Skinner & Hans Salter is a favorite.
Songs composed by Hans Zimmer, Tyler Bates, Clint Mansell, Alan Menken and Stravinsky are a few favorites as well.
Re:Hi! :)Posted by just me annalee on 7/19/2011 at 1:59 AM
I like poetry as well! But my favoritesare probably just writing short stories about random things that sound interesting at the time lol.
