- in my own thoughts
- About me
- My name is Laura. I'm 17, and I came to TeenHelp for help with personal problems. I stayed for the community. You can find me lurking around the forums, offering my two cents in religious and political debates, and asking for help on those occasions when I need to.
I'm a boring nerd-- I like reading, writing, and watching movies.
My three favorite authors are J.K. Rowling (Yes, I am one of those people), Franz Kafka (three cheers for existentialism!), and Sylvia Plath (she's fascinating, even if she is crazy).
And I've just recently realized that math is NOT the bane of my existence, so that's going interestingly.
So that's me. If you need help with anything or just want to chat, send me a Private Message (or leave a message on my profile) and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can! =]
