Biography

Edmond, Oklahoma

My name is Caitlin and I'm a senior in high school. I like music and reading (so much reading) and drawing. Reading has been a huge part of my life when I realized that reading was actually fun. I bowl and play tennis for my school and outside of those things I kinda just sit around. I'm not really a part of any clubs and I enjoy my alone time so I guess I am what is called an introvert. I am a procrastinator of a professional degree and that  is usually because I am reading and have no interest in anything else. I am the mom friend and have been since I was first introduced to my friend group.
