And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Get to Know Eachother

Hi,

My name is Rachel but you can call me Rae.

I'm sixteen years old, have chocolate brown eyes, and sorta wavy sorta messy brown hair that is about three inches below my shoulders. It is layered and I have bangs too.

I am 5'9" (very tall) and have an average body type. (Well I might be a little outta shape but that's because I've been sick this year and haven't been doing much but sleeping.)

I have five chickens(lol no joke) and my family has a five month old kitten named Leo.

I love writing, reading, and watching horror movies.

I'm not really into sports but I love watching football and soccer games.

I don't have a favorite anything besides the color green because I always change my mind on what I love.

I want to be a nurse when I grow up (ontop of my dream of being an author.)

And that's about all.

Rae

Im turning 14 in september

Im about 5'5', but always is short to everyone else.

im starting high school on the 19 of this month

Ive danced since i was 5, but never started being serious of really good at it until like a year or 2 ago

i didnt start loving to read until my 6th grade year

now i can read 800pg book in two days, and didnt really get into writing until the past year

i love twilight-but only the books, and it bugs me when squealy little girls are suddenly obsessed because of the movie, and then try to read other dark fantasy and hate it.

dark fantasy is my all time favorite genre

i live on the california coast-but the weather is ridiculous. nothing like how everyone imagines cali to be, and its just this town,

i love performing arts-acting, dancing, and some singing

and play tennis as a hobby

want a motorcycle, and the most ideal one would be a suzuki hayabusa GSX1300R

am christian

a major tree hugger

a new vegetarian 

etc

 

 

 

(w-o-w. im really bored. i wrote alot.)

Re: Get to Know Eachother

alrite clam think this through becuz if u love this guy u crnt afford to loose him you know?, put urself in his shoes, say if u found out he had a girl mate over til, 4am, what would you do and think? would u give him a chnace, would you stop talking to him, think those things through and then think, do u need to talk to him, and explian, but truthfully clam having a guy over 4am regardless having a boyfriend isnt such a good idea, so wt was the deal, he needed help with work or sumat? but seriously, uve been with him for a year this seems like the real deal, dont let it end, becuase of misconceptions
