As a senior, yearbook co-editor-in-chief, newspaper 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 freshman in college, the other, a freshman in high school) 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, makeup and writing (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. My obsessions are constantly changing, but when it comes down to it, I always revert back to my two main fandoms: the Marvel Cinematic Universe (my favorite heroes being Doctor Strange and Spiderman) and Harry Potter. I live with my parents, one brother and pet shrimp, Lucky.
