An Introduction, á la Amelie

Maximilia De La Vera is an eighteen year-old girl living in the morning of America (the east coast), with a propensity for icarian dreams.

She dislikes the sight or sound of others spitting anywhere outside of a bathroom sink (particularly sidewalks, when you're directly behind them with the possibility of stepping exactly where it's landed); the occurrence of pages sticking together while reading; and those little stringy things on peeled bananas.

She likes the smell of gasoline; systematically scrapping the cream from every Oreo before eating the chocolate covers; and the feeling of being the first and only soul awake in the early morning hours...

Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.
— Enid Bagnold
