So, I'm Laura, I'm 17, I've got one semester to go in high school then I'm off to the University of North Florida. I love writing, and I write mostly songs and poems but I'm working on two novels now, which is kind of interesting because they are complete opposite from each other. Aside from writing, music is my life. I play guitar and love every second of it. My favorite music includes, but is certainly not limited to (my musical taste is all over the place): Jewel, Something Corporate, MxPx, Vanessa Carlton, Less Than Jake, Fall Out Boy, Lisa Loeb, Simon and Garfunkel, Halo Friendlies, Five Iron Frenzy, etc etc. I'm the features editor of my school newspaper. I want to backpack from Florida to California (everyone does it through Europe...why not through your own country?) I look forward to being here, this seems like a really cool site.

hello, i like your taste in music, though i haven't heard of half of them. are you a fan of original Jewel or latest changed Jewel? i'm really into her stuff before her latest album. it just doesn't do it for me. S&G have the most beautiful harmonies. hope to see you around and good luck with the back packing thing.

Old Jewel is the absolute best..."Pieces of You" was the first CD I ever owned (I got it in 4th grade) and I still love it. Her new album is...interesting. But I saw her in concert last spring and she's still amazing.

Her lyrics are amazing...there's just no other words for it. When you hear her songs you swear she knows you and wrote the song about you (at least I feel that way). Even on her new album the lyrics are amazing, it's just that all the songs have the same crappy electronic beat. My favorite line is from "Deep Water": "You find yourself falling down, your hopes in the sky but your heart like grape gum on the ground."

i really like the whole concept to the song "pieces of you". it is so true about the world, you see it everywhere. everyone casting everyone away. ugly girl hates pretty girl, pretty girl hates ugly girl. it's really good. i agree her lyrics are still as great as ever, but...i can't get over those video clips.

Jewel is kickass. Huzzah. Though I was a tad disappointed in the last album, I'm still a fan.
I'm not even angry... I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me... And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.

The video for "Intuition" is extremely well done. But it has to be taken as a whole in order to be understood. VH1, for example, had it on Awesomely Bad Videos, but they only showed the bad parts, not the whole thing. Taken all together, the video is awesome and makes an awesome point about our culture and advertising.

I am also short, have dark hair, and sport glasses. I also am executive editor of my school paper. It seems as though we've got a little in common. I look forward to reading some of your stuff here. Good luck in all your literature and lyrical endeavours! (That's spelled extremely incorrectly.)

Yeah I think I may have found mine in El. We're both average height nots who wear glasses. I don't know her that well though so I'll have to check on that.

I'm not sure who mine would be. There are so many people who I can relate to here! Probably Crysi, seeing as we're both synesthetetes with tendancies to stay up very late and into the morning! :D
