About Me Well...because this website is mainly about music, I'll start with that. My favorite band is Switchfoot and I like Search the City, Ruth, Casting Crowns, Jonas Brothers, Paramore, David Cook, Daughtry, and Saosin. I like A LOT of artists but there's a few that I just DON'T like. Pettidee really isn't my thing, Showbread irritates me, Stellar Kart pretty much says the same thing over and over again in their songs and Krystal Meyers says 'like' and 'you know' too many times when she's talking. But if you like the four artists I just mentioned, I'm glad you found something you like.
My friends call me Lyssa and so can you. I'd like to be an author or a musician one day and until then I keep busy doing school stuff.
I really like messing around on the computer. HTML codes are awesome and I could play with them all day. They're kind of like dogs, if they do what you want them to do, you love them, but if they don't work the way you want them to, then you hate them. That's just the way it is.
Something else I love is names, I like strange names that you don't hear very often. My favorite girl names are Victory, Tempest, Bingley, and Charlotte. My favorite boys names are Dickens, Phineus, Lucas, Dimitri, and Lincoln. If you like any cool names, send them to me! :D
I also LOVE fantasy novels, my favorites are The Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and The Olympians, The Last Apprentice, The Spiderwick Chronicles, The Septimus Heap Trilogy, The Inheritance Trilogy, The Lost Years of Merlin, and Ranger's Apprentice. And I just want to let you know, I'm a fantasy nerd and I'm proud to be one! So if you're a fantasy nerd, send me a message about your favorite fantasy novel.
I'd like to say something else. I'm homeschooled. No, I don't wear my pajamas all day. No, I don't get to graduate early. No, I don't get recess any time I want. No, I'm not antisocial. No, my mom was never a teacher. No, I'm not a social outcast. No, I do not go to school in Orlando. I actually have to work REALLY hard in school so don't think that it's any easier.
I'd like to say something else that I want to make perfectly clear. I AM NOT A VEGETARIAN. I like to eat animals. I'm alergic to wheat and milk so meat's pretty much all I can eat. Well...that and salads and I do participate in salad eating on occasion but how long can you eat lettuce? And what else are animals for? Don't get me wrong, I love animals but I don't mind eating them, they'd probably eat me too if they got the chance.
Oh, yeah, my twin sister, Katelyn, is a NRT team member too. She'd love to be your friend. Here's a link to her account:
Oh yeah, I'm in a band with my sister and cousin, we're going to be setting up a purevolume account as soon as we record our songs so I'll post the link when I get it. :) We're still trying to come up with a band name so if you have a good one, send me a message!
So that's pretty much me. God bless. :
Do Hard Things by Brett and Alex Harris This book is AMAZING! It's totally changed my life. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. I have a totally different perspective on life now. I always thought that being a teenager was the only time that I could just waste my life, so I did, I spent ...

Learning to Breathe by Switchfoot Okay, I love Switchfoot and while this album isn't my favorite, I still love it. 'Love is a Movement' and 'Inoccence Again' are my favorite songs and if you're a die hard Switchfoot fan then you should totally get this album but if you're not, ...
