My name is Chessa, and I'm 16. I'm the oldest of five kids, and I help my parents take care of them. My mom has a brain tumor, it's not cancerous, but it causes her pain. I'm usually quiet, and I tend to go unnoticed, unless there is only one other person around. I like to read, write, sing, dance, and act. Other than singing, I have no musical talent, beyond naming classic rock songs just by the first few chords or words. I'm a bit of a nerd, and I like fantasy and science fiction, but I prefer classic novels and writers. Some favorites are Rand, Orwell, Wells, Wilde, and Dumas. Musically, I like classics mostly, otherwise, I don't like bands, just individual songs.
