Hello. My name is Laura Hammer, and this is my very first blog post. I think it is fitting for it to be an introduction to me. Well, who am I? I am a seventeen-year-old writer, reader, fangirl, Fall lover, essential oil user, movie, music, Goldfish, and sweets lover. There is much more to me than that. I hope this blog will show you. I intend to post my writing here, fiction and nonfiction. Through that, you will probably see a whole lot of me. Until then, this post will have to do. As I said, I love to read. I love to read about a young woman trying not to fall for a proud, rich man. Or tributes fighting for freedom. I read about a journey to throw a ring into a mountain and thirty-five girls fighting for a prince. My favorite place to be is standing with my feet in the sand letting the waves hit my ankles. I love the first day after winter when you can open your window. I love the new life that spring holds, but nothing comes close to the love I have for Fall. Warm colors, cozy sweaters, hot coffee. Oh, how I love it! I love many, many movies, including Disney and Marvel. I also love lots and lots of music. Mainly soft pop, love songs, etc. My favorite food ever is spaghetti and meatballs. Really I love all kinds of pasta…and potatoes. Ever had Pal’s frenchie fries and a sweet tea as an afternoon snack? No? Well, find yourself a Pal’s and try some. Anyway, I can’t think of much else to tell you at this point. I can’t wait to grow this blog and hear what you guys think. I hope you feel like you know me at least a little bit now, and I hope you will enjoy what is to come.
