Hey, you! I can see you there. You really aren't very good at hiding. So, what do you want? My money? My computer? What? You want to know who I am? You really are a terrible burglar. 
The name's Swinney, James Swinney. You've come to my profile, you're reading my "About Me." I suppose you can stay here for a little while. Look at whatever you want, but if you try to leave with anything I will call the police. 

I'm sixteen years old, if you care to know. I'm an average teenager whose ultimate goal is to survive through high school. I get decent grades and outside of school I read, write, and play video games. 
I live just outside of a tiny little village in Alberta. My father's the pastor of the Christian Reformed Church there, so there I am.

Here's a list of information that is entirely useless to you, but customary to post here: 

Authors: George R. R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Joe Abercrombie, Kate Elliott, Guy Gavriel Kay, David Eddings, Ken Follett and J.R.R.Tolkien
Music : Jackson Browne, CSNY, The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Harry Chapin, Dan Fogelberg, The Eagles, Jim Croce, James Taylor, America, John Denver,  Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, The Staves, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Blitzen Trapper, Fossil Collective

Favorite Wattpad Writers:  @TheOrangutan, @CraigAPrice, @AngusEcrivain, @Fauxpunker, @MatthewJSwinney, @theolddarkness, @Dermit

Thanks for leaving everything in its proper place. You know what? I kind of like you. Why don't you come back another time? See you then.

That will be all.

I do apologize for my failure to get in on time. I'm just having a hard time squeezing in any writing recently, unfortunately.

How much time is left now? I've got a little more I have to do, but it shouldn't be long
