My hair is straight almost all of the time. I wear clothes that I buy and I like buying clothes. I also like the beach, so I look sorta beachy.
I'm a very peppy girl. I've got a lot of pep. Mom says I should save some of my enthusiasm for school, but I do not like school. At all. You can find me at the beach, or at home, or just, y'know, around. If I like you, I'll probably start talking to you about weird things, so just consider yourself warned.
Okay, so the full story. I was born in Santa Barbara on the fifteenth of May, 1996, and I had a mom and a dad and it was really nice but I always just really wanted an older brother or sister which obviously isn't possible. Then, when I was like five, I got my first detention in preschool because I kissed a boy and then we broke up because my dad said I was too young to be kissing boys. Then I started elementary school and everyone thought I was really nice and I had all these friends, and then in 2005 my parents divorced and I just sorta stopped talking to my friends, and the company mom works for was opening a new branch here, which was also part of the reason they were arguing but I didn't know it at the time, which sucked.
And so I came to Miduna Beach and I went to the elementary school and for the whole time I was there I didn't say anything to basically anyone and I didn't really bother with my schoolwork and I met these kids at the counsellors office because my mom thought I was depressed and they kinda convinced me to just ditch school and go to the beach, which I did for most of sixth grade. It also sucked because my mom was dating this new guy, and so she spent a lot of time with him, so she didn't really notice that I wasn't going to school.
Then right before Christmas in 2007 my mom told me she was pregnant and I just sorta spent the whole afternoon crying in my room because I thought "wow, now no one's going to pay attention to me" and I wrote this little note to Santa asking if he could give me a friend for Christmas and a family who cared about me and my mom found it and she asked me about it and so then we started this thing of going out together on Thursday afternoons and just window shopping and she let me dye my hair black and she just started being my mom again, and I went through this emo phase and had an emo boyfriend and then on the day that Blake was born, mom and Blake's dad bought me that teddy bear that you liked so much, and they let me pick out of the names Blake and James.
So Blake was born and then it got so much better because I had Blake all the time now, and so my wish came true and I guess that's part of the reason that I love Blake as much as I do, and I decided that instead I got to be the older sibling that I always wanted, and I started talking to people in school and I got asked on my first actual date, by Aaron...um wow, I can't remember his last name. But yeah, I had a boyfriend and he told me he had this crush on me for a while but thought I wouldn't want to date anyone because of the whole emo phase thing and we dated for like a month before breaking up like all twelve year olds do.
Yeah, well then when I was thirteen my best friend at the time had a huge crush on me, his name was Chris Langley, by the way. And basically, he asked me to be his valentine, and I didn't think he liked me seriously and then he was like "I love you" which wasn't something I really liked because at the same time mom and Blake's dad were fighting and separating, so I just kinda ditched my friends and met Izzy Finch, who is Matt's younger sister, and then it turns out she was one of the people I used to skip school with back in sixth grade, and we started skipping school and going to the beach and she introduced me to her brother and I had this huge crush on him.
And then he rejected me because I was like almost five years younger than him, and because he would've been turning eighteen that year. But anyway, back to the story, I was kinda bummed about being rejected because it was the first time I'd been rejected and then Izzy introduced me to some guy friends she knew and I started dating this guy to try and make Matt jealous or something. I don't know. Then, when I told him I didn't want to sleep with him he just sorta said "You're not that hot anyway."
I felt really self conscious that no guy would ever want to date me and I was like fourteen at the time and really, really confused, plus I knew that Izzy had, so I asked this sixteen year old guy from the football team if he would sleep with me so I could get it over with, and so I did.
It sorta got around that I was just willing to sleep with guys on the football team, and so I figured that no one would've been my friend, and so I just sorta slept with a few people.
Well um...yeah. I did that, and then there was some rumours going around the school about me and I just got really depressed and I started going to the beach instead of school because people are just awful and I didn't want to be around them and the beach was just this place I liked to go. Then my mom suggested that I go back and visit dad because she wasn't really happy with the way I was acting, so I spent the summer of 2011 in Santa Barbara and I got to know my dad a lot better and when I came back from vacation, I changed my last name to mom's so it was sort of a new start for me, and I met Claire and Stella and basically all of the lovely people I know from school, and I was actually happy, but I still loved going to the beaches instead of classes sometimes because they were boring or because some of the guys still made jokes about me being a slut, and I was over it.
So then in 2012, I was going to Benny's because it looked cool and they had a help wanted sign so I thought, yeah, why not, I'll get a job, and I asked Benny how to apply for a job and he was like "if you want a job, I can start training you this weekend" so I did and then I got like employee of the month after my third month working there, which was really cool, and I actually started to get my grades up, and then Stella and I used to go watch the football team practice. Our grade, not the older grade, and in August, I met Daniel Mannering, and he asked me out and I said yeah, because he was just about the only guy on the football team that didn't make a joke about me sleeping with football players.
Well I used to hang out with one of his friends because he was funny, and then Daniel sort of jumped to the conclusion that I was cheating on him, and he actually cheated on me to get back at me, so that was potentially the messiest breakup I'd ever had in my life, and I was all mopey and sad for a while and I met Jake at the beach, and I know that you're thinking this is an awful lot of boyfriends by now, but Jake had a girlfriend at the time, and he sorta comforted me, and then when he and his girlfriend broke up, I was there to comfort him and we're just always each other's go to guys for relationship advice. Or at least, he is for me. Oh, and I forgot to mention because I was on the boyfriend story, but I met Marzi back in like December or something like that and helped her get a job here.
Anyways, happy Bronte that we all know and love started coming back, and then I went to this hobo party where I hardly knew anyone, and I met Michael, and we dated over the summer, and it was really sweet and romantic and not like the other guys that I'd known, and then he got accepted to college in San Fransisco and we both sorta decided that long distance relationships don't work, so we broke up and I spent a bit of time with my dad because I figure I should at least keep the relationship with my dad up, plus he was getting married and then, after that point, I sorta just told myself that I wasn't going to date again until I met someone really, really, incredibly special, and then I met Jackson.

|So for those of you wondering, yes, I did get bored of Bronte. I had all these plans for her and Jackson, which I realised didn't really give Jackson much of a personality other than a love interest, and I realise that while she has a very interesting past, there's not much in the way of future for her. Basically, she's going to her dad's house in Santa Barbara for the summer, and she may be back (possibly with short hair), but I'm not 100% on that. We'll see.|
