My name is Holly, I live in Colorado Springs, USA, with my father. I'm 16 and I'm up way too early this morning. It's just gone 6am. I'm hoping to be able to contribute something to these boards in the near future. I attend highschool, and work part time at a local pizza place. My boyfriend lives in Australia as of March this year, and though I'm fairly sweet on him, I don't expect to see him again anytime soon. I have a dog, a golden retriever named Squid, who my dad named, and he is a real darling. I've been writing creative fiction since the sixth grade, and it has just been a past-time that I enjoy and get a little satisfaction from. My best subjects in school are English, Science and Mathematics, which is rather bland since they are pretty much the core subjects that everyone does well at, however I particularly enjoy, in school and out of school, learning about creative writing, biology, and algebra. I don't know why algebra fascinates me the way it does, but it's something to do. I'm still not sure what I will do after high school, but I would prefer to study mathematics or a scientific discipline at university, and my dad has suggested physics, which covers both science and mathematics. It would be a hugely challenging field, so I haven't really decided yet. Dad is an officer in the air force going on fifteen years, and I can tell that he would be extremely proud of me if I decided to pursue a career along the same lines as him, but he has never pressured me in that direction. I never cared much for Shakespeare when we first studied his work in the seventh grade, but I've recently been looking into it more, starting with recent movies based on his plays, and now I'm reading all of his work. It is another thing that fascinates me, and I find myself laughing at his plots a lot more now than I did at first. He is one of my main sources of inspiration and ideas. My favorite books and movies change as I read and watch more, so it would be pointless to list them. I'm also pretty new to the whole internet concept, as I didn't have an internet connection until just after I turned fifteen, and even then, I didn't have much interest in it. I think that's about enough out of me for now, and I'll learn some more about the way things work on this site before posting any more.
