Hey everybody,
I find nothing exciting, let alone pretend to show interest, before eleven a.m. 
I'm 16 living in B.C. Canada. Proud Canadian!
I love dancing in the rain!
My favorite authors are: Ally Carter, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Dickens, Steinbeck...
I love Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill. Sadly, both of them are over. Arrow is now my new obsession. 
I listen to music every chance I get.
I like Marianas Trench, Nickelback, Hedley, The Fray, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, The Killers, XTC...
I am a huge procrastinator but I have always kept my grade level at an 'A'.
I have a 27 year old brother and a 33 year old sister. 
I have a cat, pictured above, that is named after a UFC wrestler. Her name is Silva. 
I have amazing friends that have gone through everything with me since kindergarten. I don't know what I would do without them.
I do not believe in soul mates, or true love, and I find the concept of love in high school utterly ridiculous. My opinion, and mine alone, no hate.    
I'm 4'10" and proud of it. 
It's a rare occasion you see me not smiling. Unless you wake me up.
My celebrity crushes consist of pretty much any guy who's ever been on the CW. It was way better when it was the WB but can't do anything about that now. 
Sarcasm is my first language.
Red is the best!
Tiny in size, height, weight, with pale skin in serious need of a tan, green eyes and light brown hair that's a couple inches past my chest.
Dresses, heels? No. Jeans, converse? Absolutely!

There are a lot of things in my life right now that are undecided. And that used to scare me, but I kind of like the idea that it’s just all kind of wide open. -- Gilmore Girls.

Grief is like the ocean. It’s deep and dark and bigger than all of us. And pain is like a thief in the night…quiet, persistent, unfair…diminished by time and faith and love.-- One Tree Hill.

Si vous savez ce que cela signifie, vous êtes un génie. Au revoir.

Signed, Sydney (shortygirl12321).

Description: "When I first got to high school I thought it was daunting, without even a thought to the world surrounding me. I had no idea that the building that I was about to enter would be a condensed world of the future in front of me. Being the naïve perso...

@muskaanmehta10 Yes, it is. Like I just said above, it's a reference to the Manson Family, not the Scott family. When she says Manson it's a comparison of what Sarah thinks the Scott's are like. The Manson family is a "family" who did some horrible things. When she's comparing the Scott Mansion to the Manson Mansion, she's basically saying it's Hell.

I open my eyes and they practically bulge out of their sockets. I'm in the foyer of my old house, the one I had with my parents. I smile before I hear a creaking on the stair. I whip my head around t...
Haha thank you, I'm glad you like it. The poem with the man on the stair who wasn't there is called "Antigonish" by Hughes Mearns.

Having never been in her room before, I find myself walking closer, wondering if I’ll find a horse head in her bed or a cauldron in the corner. Pushing the door open, my eyes go wide in shock. It...
@emmybaby58 Haha well thank you for pointing that out, and thank you so much for reading (and I'm assuming enjoying my book because you read it twice) it means a lot to me.

*Facepalms* Oh my God, plot hole. I didn't even realize that. Thank you so much for mentioning that, I totally forgot about that. For the time being, let's just assume that Sarah found that good alcohol that her grandmother hid somewhere else in the house, just until I fix that plot hole haha.
Hey guys, I'll post the next chapter as soon as I can, I just got off a mini vacation with my sister, and this week will be a little hectic too, but I'm going as fast as I can. Also, PLEASE READ THIS, I am considering entering Count to Ten (The New Version) in the Watty Awards. I've always wanted to try it, it's on my bucket list, and I figured now is as good a time as any. I know it's a long shot, my expectancy level to win isn't that high since there are so many other amazing authors on this website, but I thought it'd be a fun thing to try. So, I'd love to hear your opinions on this. Please respond, I really want to hear feedback on this. And since this is in the Watty's, comment and like Count to Ten as much as you can. I'm not the kind of person to ask for comments or votes, that never mattered to me, because all of you guys are so amazing and you guys just reading my work is already enough, but it's not me, it's the Watty's asking for this, so please vote and comment, it's much appreciated, as always, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thank you so much for being so patient, I love you guys, and please give me your thoughts!
