About Me
I guess I'm one of those people who think they're simple when really they're complex, or are really complex when they like to think of themselves as simple. Not simple-minded, but stream-lined, like a ghost of a breeze, the smell of salt in the air. In any case, I'm trying to say that I'm really not very good at talking about myself. I don't have enough to say, but on the other hand I just may have too much to say, and I don't want to seem rude or vain. I'm an eighth grader and a lover of knowledge, but a hater of school. I love irony and satire and all of that. I may or may not be a writer; I'll leave that up to you to decide. Anyway, I love words and I love language, and that's why I'm here, I guess.

Favorite Word:

obnubilate
Because it's such an odd word, with an odd shape and an odd meaning. I've never heard it used in a sentence all my life, but I get the feeling it has an odd sound to it, too, like footsteps in a graveyard that's not supposed to be occupied. I don't know, maybe I'm just a lover of odd things, but this word just appeals to me.

Least Favorite Word:

anxiety
just looking at the shape of the word makes me nervous. And it has an x in it. But there's something I like about even my least-favorite word, and that is how the x-i-e look in that string of letters; like they were meant for each other. So maybe this isn't my least favorite word. Oh well. Bite me.
