Addie Orr
As a junior, yearbook clubs editor, newspaper co-editor in chief, Sapphire Lieutenant, AP student, and full time fangirl, the words “free time” don’t exactly fit into my vocabulary. Throw two brothers (one, a senior, the other, an eighth grader) into the mix, and there’s never a moment where all cars are in the driveway. Nevertheless, what little spare time I have is taken up by sleep, food, writing, makeup and books (you know, the important things). I have an addiction to Tex-Mex and mac and cheese, which are (in my humble opinion) God’s greatest gifts to the world. I love to have music going at all times, and am usually found listening to a musical (my favorites are Anastasia and Dear Evan Hansen, but I don’t mind a little Wicked or Newsies), or any alternative playlist (Panic! At The Disco, Imagine Dragons, etc.). My obsessions are constantly changing, but when it comes down to it, I always revert back to my three main fandoms: Sherlock (the TV show with Benedict Cumberbatch) the Marvel Cinematic Universe (my favorite heroes being Doctor Strange and Spiderman) and Harry Potter. I live with my parents, two brothers and pet shrimp named Lucky. As a dancer and writer all my life and a lover of grammar and language, I want to go to college to major in journalism and minor in dance.
