Meet Elizabeth (aka "Hippy Liz")
I'm Liz from Ontario, Canada. I decided to write for Sweet Designs Magazine and the advice column because I'm self-centered, so I needed a way to tell my stories and use them to help people, as opposed to annoy them. Also, I'm a realist, and I have a different mindset from every other teenager I know ... and it's not like I have anything better to do.
I'm going to be a senior next year, and I can't wait because I enjoy the examination of human nature achieved from going to high school ... and I love history. After high school I either plan to go to university - I want a bachelor of arts - or run away and get married.
Right now I really need a job. I've been told I should start selling the tie dyes I do. I was born in the wrong decade. I love Led Zeppelin and Simon and Garfunkel. I love to dance and sing in the shower, and I have a horrible sense of humor.
