My name is shannon.

I am an adventurer, aspiring writer, skier, student, and wanderer. I was born on 4 May, 1993 in Northport, New York, USA. I’ve told 19 stories. I joined Cowbird on May 6, 2013.

I'm Shannon. I just turned twenty. That scares me a lot. I'm terrified of wasting my life, not speaking up when I should, letting my dreams stay dreams, not finding true happiness or adventure, the list goes on.

I'm pursuing Occupational Therapy, but I really want to be a writer when I grow up. Or, an English teacher. Pretty much anything that involves being creative, reading good books and inspiring people to see the world differently.

To be perfectly honest, I'm going through a weird time. Not long ago, I was living the life that I have always wanted and now I'm just trying to survive. It sucks but hopefully this all works out for the best. Please.

Inspiring people and changing the world are my ultimate goals in life. If you told me that I felt so much pain for no greater purpose, my whole world would crash down. I want to write things that make people shiver of inspiration and then want to go out and make a change, no matter how small it is.

These are my stories. They bare my soul and I'm not gonna lie, that really scares me. But, for some reason, I feel inclined to do it, so, here goes nothing. Maybe one day, my bravery will benefit some people later on.
