i'm natasha. i'm thirteen, the third of june nineteen ninety six. i
live in hull, which is in england, and obviously we all sit around
sipping tea with our pinky sticking out and speaking in posh posh
voices. well, not really. everyone here either seems to be a chav or
an idiot. i don't like to think of myself as any of them. i'm in year
nine, next year i'll be doing GCSEs in drama and graphics. i'm in the
middle of a gcse in 3-D sculpture. when i leave school i want to work
in musical theatre or photography. i take singing lessons and i'm part
of an amateur operatic and dramatic society. musical theatre is pretty
much my life.

i'm passionate about many things. i love musical theatre, more then
you can imagine. my friends know about the jonas brothers and lady
gaga and me? i can list off the entire original london cast of les
miserables. i'm passionate about fashion; i can't describe my style
but i honestly care about designers and fashion and beautiful fabrics.
i'm passionate about books; i list the picture of dorian grey, les
miserables, little women and interview with the vampire as
myfavourites, though i'll read anything if you put it in front of me.

i love music. i'm not interested in pixie lott or jls and i only
learnt who taylor swift was a couple of months ago. i went through a
period in my life where i listened to nothing but Aerosmith and
Nightwish. I love all kinds of bands now: i actually like taylor swift
(feel free to judge me), i love my chemical romance still, i love
paloma faith and her quirky sense of style. i love the smiths more
then i love the beatles (feel free to judge me again - i know the
beatles are seen as a big thing but i'm honestly not too fussed about
them. give me morrissey over john lennon any day) and i adore Aiden.
John Barrowman is going to be my first ever concert. Nobody can say I
aren't diverse in my music.

once upon a time there were two people and they loved each other very
much and they had a baby son and called him michael. then six years
later they had a baby girl and they named her natasha.
natasha grew up and she wanted to be a writer and in year two when
asked to write about their role-models whilst everyone else in the
class chose britney spears or david beckham or their parents she chose
jk rowling and she drew a bad picture of a blonde woman on a throne
holding a magic wand surrounded by owls.
she was never popular or pretty but she was friendly and quiet and she
talked to everyone. she had a best friend called medythia and they
swore they would be best friends forever and ever and ever and they
played imaginary games and said one day they'd share a flat together.
then she moved into high school and suddenly she was scared of
everyone and older boys insulted her and she met ellie and shona and
she laughed and she cried and she did exams and became interested in
musical theatre and then that was her life.
then her best friend (forever and ever and ever) turned against her
and spread rumours and natasha couldn't take it any more and she moved
schools and she went to see her other friends. and she met laura and
sammy and she went clubbing and she drank and she smoked and she may
have done a little bit of drugs and she got drunk and slept with a boy
she didn't know a party and slept with a boy she did know even though
she knew he had a girlfriend and she hated herself.
but she had the time of her life doing it.
