NAME: Grace Violet
ABOUT ME: Hey-ho I’m Grace Violet.
Okay-dokie, things about me... I'm a self professed Janeite, dedicated thespian, part-time ballerina and full-time dreamer... seriously, I have the uncanny ability to lucid dream about whoever and whatever I want. I have done since I was little, always thought everybody could.
I used to attend Mayberry's College for Young Ladies but I'm going to be a first year student at the state college of Roundview. It's super surreal, partly because I'll be in the same classes as both of my forever friends, Mini McGuiness and Olivia Malone, but mostly because I've never attended a co-ed school before, it's majorly different.
One of the main things I love about Roundview is that I won't have to wear a school uniform anymore; although I did wear it as a costume for Halloween this year. Mini told everyone I was Hit Me Baby Britney but I wasn't, I was actually Nabokov's Lolita. Mini said Britney would be much scarier though. I adore Halloween. I mean it's the only time a year where for one night you can transform into anyone you want and everybody has to play along.
I love collecting coins; well just pennies really, for good luck of course. I also have a habit of making wishing on things; you know, wishbones, dandelions, eyelashes, new shoes (but if I told you what they were, none of them would come true, would they?).
If I could have any super power I'd love, love, love to be able to talk to animals, you know like Dr. Doolittle or Eliza Thornberry. I'm a bit of an animal fanatic. I've adopted two polar bears, a penguin and a baby seal pup. Although we have a dog at home, I'm a secret Ailurophile as well. I love Kitty cats. I often feed the ones I see around the neighbourhood and rename them too (you know, so it feels like I have loads of pets); so far I have a Grace Kelly, Lady Macbeth, Willoughby and a Snow White (Snow White's my favourite though, shhh.)
If I was an ice cream flavour... I'd be vanilla. Well that's what Mini says (Liv would be a chocolate chunk ice cream Sunday, without the cherry and she would be a low fat frozen yogurt). To be honest, I don't mind being vanilla. Everybody body likes vanilla, it goes with everything. I mean without vanilla ice cream, what would everybody eat their deserts with... frozen yogurt?? P.S. they serve it at Nandos, it's actually surprisingly yum.
