Hi everybody! As you probably already know, my name in Lauren McCulley. I'm pretty short, considering my age, and I have glasses, due to the fact I'm nearsighted (that means I have trouble seeing far away). Including me, my family has four people, my mom, dad andsister. I have no pets, but I'm persuading my parents to get one. My excuse..."I'll die without one." I hvae 15 cousins including triplets! I have three best friends, and a lot of other friends. I love to write and when I grow up I want to be a reporter/journalist. That's why I took this job. I also love music, I couldn't live without music...or writing!I hardly ever have time to post stories here because I spend most of my time with soccer, track, basketball, dance, NJHS and eight grade homework. :( I'm keeping up with NextGen as much as I can, but I'm also very busy with the eighth grade, and sports. I thank everybody reading this for their time and effort, and hope to read your story soon! Also, advice to ALL NextGen readers and members, if you took the time to read a story, why don't you put forth the effort to rating and posting a comment about someone's story!! They really appreciate the praise and constructive criticism , atleast I know I do! It really doesn't take much effort to write a few sentences about a story and click on however many stars you think the piece deserves. BYE for now!
