Once upon a time a little girl was born in a little town in the east of Quebec. After 4 miscarriages, her parents welcomed very much the little being that would be their only one. they brought her up as well as they could half living in Quebec where she went to school during the week, and in the deepest woods of vermont during the week ends where she learned to deal with nature. She was a vey stubborn, impatient, moody, jealous child, but also bright, talented and inquisitive. Which she still is today.

When she was about 11, her parents decided to move to Florida. they picked up all their stuff, sold the leftovers, left some in their house in vermont, and fled in their little car to florida. Over there life was so much different for the little french girl. Especially since she did not speak much english. So she worked hard and learned it better than real english speakers in 3 months. So she kind of stopped working hard at that time and still kept a 4.0 average.

By age 14 she had made many friends, learned a lot of things, and was quite happy there. She would even be having her 8th grade prom at the end of the year! She was quite happy!

2 months before the end of the year and the prom her grandparents became sick and one of them died. her parents decided it was time to go back home to the cold. :o(

The problem was that by then the little girl did not speak french anymor,e but she would have to go to french school! ACK! well... She worked hard again and 2 months later she started being lazy again and kept a 3.8 average again. but she was very very sad because not only did she lose all her grandparents in 2 months, she had no more friends and she felt alienated in her own country. :o( She was very very sad.

one day she started high school. there she met very..interesting people... eventually she had a whole group of friends! and not only that, she started feeling like this was her home again! And she didn't want to go back to florida anymore! So she had the best times of her life, enjoyed life very very much! by that time she had started writing and was very much interested in literature and language.

So when she finished high school she went to college in literature and language! :o) She lost a few friends due to them moving, but the most important stayed with her.

By that time she'd had the internet for a good while, and she had met a few guys online. One broke her heart, one used her body, one played her mind and the last one stayed forever! So this one guy came to stay with her and her parents, and is still around every day and she stil loves him very very much!

now the little girl had become very much informed culturally and very critical of things around her. By this time many people hated her because she wasn't afraid of speaking her mind and being who she was. She was very arrogant.

She got her diploma..quite easily might I add, and she went on to the big fearfull university! but what to choose???

so she looked at everything, and eventually she choose to go to a very good english university close to her home in english literature. by that time she had co-written a book and also had a few short stories in backround. life in university was not the same. Not only did her habit of not working too hard get her badly, she let herself be taken into various things that kept her mind occupated with the wrong things.

So now the little girl searches for something valuable to do with her life.
