Hey!! I saw your comment on my page,and while I respect every person's opinion,and I understand where you're coming from,what you are doing is cyber bullying. I just stated my opinion. I do not bully any kids,because I know how it feels & I am aware that it is wrong. I appreciate you commenting on my page & telling me,though,so I can be more careful with my words because they may hurt some people. Have a great day,sweetie!!

butterflygirl14 on 8/4/2012 3:20:38 PM
It was about how teenagers always feel like they have to change in high school to be excepted and how nobody is really themselves anymore. I called it False Identity.
maggie183 on 8/4/2012 12:38:56 PM
That's so cool! I love how it makes your writing into something real (not that it wasn't already real but it gives you the sense of being published and having others read what you've written). I won the state writing contest for my state in 9th grade and had a story I had written published in a college magazine which was really exciting! And everyone was like, "Maggie that is SO cool, we didn't know you wrote!" haha :-D
maggie183 on 8/3/2012 12:52:19 PM
Hey! I saw your comment and went to figment to read your books! I love 31 days!
I thought about it well after I was done reading it.

maggie183 on 8/1/2012 10:23:28 PM
WOW that's so awesome!!!! You're really talented, I just had time to read a couple of the things you wrote and they were sooo good
maggie183 on 7/31/2012 6:32:58 PM

girlscupcakespitbulls on 7/31/2012 6:24:21 PM
I write about all kinds of things..mostly realistic fiction tho. Oh and I wrote a story about my 8th grade year (like the best year of my friends and I's lives haha) that was over a hundred pages..I spent that whole summer working on it :-D That's so cool you write too! What do you write about?
maggie183 on 7/31/2012 10:46:39 AM
Um well no sports :/ lol I used to take tennis, dance and gymnastics but I don't anymore. My main hobbies now: singing, writing, babysitting..and hanging out with friends haha :-D
What about u?
maggie183 on 7/29/2012 9:15:49 PM
Awesome, me too! My favorite has got to be the gymnastics tho..haha I was up watching that until like midnight last night :p
maggie183 on 7/29/2012 2:22:15 PM
Hey, I got your post on my profile and I am not offended so no worries. Actually when I was reading the examples you were giving me I was thinking, duh I can't believe I did that. So a lot of them were accidents, the "my Mom and my Dad" thing was probably because I accidentally push the shift button a lot and sometimes don't notice it. So yeah some of those things I would catch, but a lot of the time I don't have time to edit or I am just to lazy to. I will try to work on them though, so thanks for pointing it out to me.
kjm109 on 7/28/2012 8:20:41 PM
I'm not sure..I didn't see the beginning because I was at a family friends house so I missed that part!! Everyone says that was the best part so I gotta see it tho! What's your favorite sport to watch in the olympics?
maggie183 on 7/28/2012 1:25:11 PM
Yeah I was :-D It was crazy!! lol The little kids in it were so adorable tho!
maggie183 on 7/28/2012 11:29:26 AM
Haha!! He doesn't like me tho so whatever..:-( lol
But who knows what will happen next year (probably nothing :p) ya nvr know
maggie183 on 7/27/2012 8:30:40 PM
Yeah haha! Same here, I always fall for guys with dark hair more lol And my sorta crush is British..he moved here from England in 4th grade tho so he doesn't have an accent anymore :-( haha
maggie183 on 7/27/2012 5:47:41 PM
Yeah Liam is my fav ;) I love all of them tho..they seem like such genuinly nice/good people. Plus I'm a total sucker for a boy with a british accent haha
maggie183 on 7/27/2012 3:54:22 PM
Yeah! Um my fav 1D song has always gotta be What Makes You Beautiful but I also love One Thing!! And Up All Night! :-D Who is your favorite member of the band? I'm torn between Liam and Harry ;)

maggie183 on 7/24/2012 7:18:55 PM
That's awesome!! That's so cool you cheerlead..I always wished I did that! I took gymnastics when I was younger but then I quit (have forever regretted that one) lol
maggie183 on 7/23/2012 4:57:58 PM
It's been really great! I've been interning at this camp for kids in my town with a group of my friends for the month of July which has been SO fun plus I've been earning lol

myfatsquirrel on 6/29/2012 2:02:02 PM
the main character is a teenage girl named Maximum Ride. she has 5 other siblings, but they're not related. they're all 98% human and 2% bird. they all look like normal people, except they have wings and can fly. they don't know who their parents are, but they were practically set up for adoption because they were donated to a science lab. this is how they became part bird. then they escaped and live on their own. fang (about max's age) and max kind of like each other. look it up on google it's a really good series. the author is james patterson
myfatsquirrel on 6/29/2012 1:39:19 PM

Character’s Name: Aradia Antonella Rae Perez
Character’s Age: 17
Character’s Traits/Appearance: Aradia's ethnicity is Italian, Cherokee, and African American. Aradia has a soft spoken African accent with a bit of Italian hype in it at times when she gets excited. She has toffee colored skin, with freckles all up her nose and upper cheeks from being in the sun all the time. She has light brown curly course hair which she hates keeping up with, but knows if she doesn't it will be more frizzy than it is now, if that's even possible. Her hair just barely reaches her shoulders, but when she straightens her hair its a little bit below her shoulders. She has no bangs, Aradia never thought they would look good since her curls are so tight and small. Her eyes are crystal blue in the daylight but in darker, shadowier places, her eyes turn to hazel. Aradia's mother always told Aradia her eyes looked exactly like her Grandma Marisol's, because her grandma's eyes did the exact same thing in the light, but they are the only two in the family that eyes did this. Makeup is practically the enemy, according to Aradia, it makes her break out, even the most expensive, natural makeup does, so Aradia goes natural. The only "makeup" does Aradia ever wear is lipgloss or chapstick, lipstick is sometimes use if she is going to a special event. Fashion style for Aradia all depends on her mood, if she is lazy, she will wear sweats with a white tee, but if she feels truely feminine, she will a nice skirt with a jean jacket. "Every outfit I have has at least one shoe to match it", Aradia always says. Aradia isn't exactly worried about her body shape, she has broad shoulders with regular size breasts and a curvy body. Her height is 5'7".
Character’s Personality: It is known in Aradia's family that Aradia is a very lazy child. She doesn't mind her room being messy, but if it needs to be clean, she will be willing to do it to get the job done. But on weekends you can find Aradia sleeping in at least 2 in the afternoon. In school Aradia is a very good student. She is practically a teacher's pet in some classes, which annoys Aradia's friends deeply, stating that "Aradia is all the teachers favorite." Aradia doesn't mean to be like this, but Aradia's mother, Naomi, always taught her to be a helping hand in any situation. Other than that, Aradia is like any other student at Elliot High School. She isn't exactly the most popular girl in school, but is well known in her class. Ways Aradia's friends described her is quiet, but crazy once you get to know her, free-willing, bubbly, lazy, and free-sprited. Out of school Aradia's is apart of the YMCA's swim team and is the top player in lacrosse. Adriana is the type of person that if something is bothering her, or she is stressed, angry, sad, or worried, she just gets in her car and drives, music also clears her mind. Aradia's highschool job is being a waitress at Elise's Diner, where also Autumn, one of her closest friends, worked at. They would have a fun time doing their job, this would sometimes get them in trouble, but nothing to horrible to get them fired. Overall Aradia loved life and went with whatever comes her way.
Character’s Family: Aradia's parents, Mr and Mrs. Perez (Ages 45 and 47), are marine biologists. Since the age of 10 Aradia has been living with her Aunt Charice (Age 28) and Uncle Kazi (Age 37) because Aradia's parents took a job to collect data of certain ocean animals in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Aradia's sister, Imani, who is 21, goes to college a town away from their Uncle's and Aunt's house, and Aradia's 8 year old brother, Rocco, also lives with Aunt Charice and Uncle Kazi. Imani comes to stay at their uncle's house every weekend and plays games with the family and helps do errands. Imani is very willing and caring, her and Aradia have good realtionship, Aradia always ask her big sis for advice. Rocco on the other hand, is a big book worm, he is a reading fanatic! It seems that every other day Rocco has a new book in his hand. But other than Rocco reading, he is a player on the basketball team and plays video games, him and Aradia usually get along pretty well. Aunt Charice is Aradia's favorite aunt, she is just like a teenager. She knows all the newest fashions and trends, and is all caught up in social networking. Aradia also asks her for advice and Aunt Charice always has a story to match Aradia's situation. Aunt Charice works at a nail salon, but is always home by the time Aradia comes home from work. Also Aunt Charice is Autumn's mom best friend since highschool, so Autumn was over the house all the time. Uncle Kazi is the Italian speaker in the household. He is always speaking Italian around the house, so it is always hard to understand him since Aradia doesn't know too much Italian, but Uncle Kazi is a very funny man. He is always doing practical jokes to Rocco or Aunt Charice, sometimes even Aradia herself! He owned Italy's Bakery in their town and is the cook in the house insteas of Aunt Charice, who isn't exactly the 'best' cook. He will do whatever in his might to protect and provide for his family.
Character’s Overall Biography: Aradia Antonella Rae was born on the first day of May on a rainy cool day in San Fransico. Since then, she has move to Boston to her Uncle Kazi and Aunt Charice's house. As a little girl, Aradia was a very rambunctious girl, drawing on walls with crayons, jumping around in the garden, screaming on the playground, yep that was Aradia Rae. Her father nicknamed her "Radiant Rae" because she was always smiling around the house or singing to the radio. Rambio Perez was Aradia's father, he was full blood Italian, while Naomi Perez, her mother, was African American and Cherokee American. Naomi and Rambio met in college and have been together since. After college they both worked in a labatory in New York (Where Iman was born) until San Fransico called their name as veterinarians for the San Francisco Zoo. San Francisco was where Aradia and Rocco were born. With three kids living in a condo in mid city San Francisco, the Perez's couldn't of been happier. But then when Aradia was 10, Rocco was 1, and Imani was 14, the government requested that Mr and Mrs. Perez would help do research over marine animals in the Atlantic Ocean. This worried Naomi completely, she didnt want to miss out on her children lives. But Naomi and Rambio thought it through and decided to do the job. They asked Rambio's brother, Kazi, to take care of their children as they were gone and Kazi and his wife Charice easily agreed. Rambio and Naomi moved all their kids belongings to Boston, and they had a very hard departure from their children. They promised to be home for Christmas, and they haven't broken that promise since. It has been 7 years since and as much as Aradia misses her parents, she knows they are doing something they love and that is all that matters. It wasn't like Aradia hated where she lived, she actually loved it. They lived in a 3 level townhouse in the middle of Boston, they were in the middle of everything, the mall, museum, school was only a few blocks away, they were close to everything. Aunt Charice also was very easy-going, meaning she didn't mind Aradia leaving the house to shop, hang out with friends, going to church, Aunt Charice remembered being a teen and she understood how 'important' being out with friends was. As much as Aradia loved this, she kinda wish Aunt Charice wasn't so 'willing' to let Aradia go places, because it seems like Aunt Charice doesn't care where she is at, and could care less. This is when Aradia wishes her parents where here, they would've enforced more rules, curfews, and etc.
How the Character was Effected by Autumn’s Death: As life was going normal for Aradia, she comes home one day to Aunt Charice bawling her eyes out on the island in the kitchen with a bowl of chocolate ice cream and wine next to her. Crying, chocolate ice cream, and wine--someone has died. Aradia rushed over to her aunt's side to find out what happened. Aunt Charice sobs but spits out the words: "Autumn's dead." Aradia stumbled backwards and almost collasped to the ground. She didn't believe it. Autumn couldn't of died. She just was texting her last night. All these thoughts rushed to her mind as she ran to her room and cried. Autumn and Aradia met in 1st grade, when Aradia first moved here from San Francisco, she was Aradia's first friend. Autumn came over her house every Friday as Autumn's mother and Aunt Charice did their 'lady gossip' and caught up on each other. It was just like yesterday Autumn and Aradia were in 1st grade, playing on the playground together, and now she was dead. Aradia didn't even know how Autumn died. That whole night Aradia cried, she even was so upset that she made herself throw up. That next day she never came out her room once, she just laid in the bed thinking. Not only was she mourning about Autumn's death, she was scared of seeing Autumn at the funeral, Aradia was frightened by death deeply. She went to one funeral for her Grandma Louise when she was 4 and at the sight of the casket, Aradia ran out of the room, screaming and crying her eyes out. She had made such an entrance Aunt Beliz, Naomi's sister, asked if Naomi's family could leave because Aradia was a disturbance and was making the situation of Grandma Louise's death even worse. Aradia didn't want that happening at her best friend's funeral. The thought of the funeral was stressing Aradia out. But what was stressing Aradia even out more was how was she going to live without Autumn?
