Sparklers

Your eyes were like sparklers;
They burned bright for a while,
then died out with the joy of
controlling tiny fires.

Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you so much Weronika Donovan for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.

7 things about me

  1. I was born in Canada, but have spent half my life in New York, half in Florida.
  2. I am the shortest person in my family (5’0), but I am not the youngest.
  3. I have a weak immune system, so I get sick a lot.
  4. I don’t have a life, let alone a social life. I spend all my time writing, reading, and listening to music.
  5. When I was younger I wanted to be a Marine Biologist, and got scuba certified, but I gave up on that a long time ago.
  6. I’m a pretty depressing person, but I make up for it by being funny, and usually pretty fun to hang around. (Though I don’t hang out with many people very often).
  7. My eyes change color. They’re sometimes very dark blue, blue and green, or blue and grey.

Your piece can consist of any topic or theme except;

  1. Religious views in any way
  2. Political views in any way
