Hello everyone! I am Rachel Bragg, one of the youngest (I think, maybe) members of ydr’s Teen Takeover. I love talking (right now as I write this blog, I’m talking to about three people on IM. Make that four. Five…)
I love writing. Since I was little, I always wrote. My first story was about a farmer and his horse (probably what started my horse obsession). I don’t remember the full plot though, I just know I got an A (I can be cocky sometimes). There are so many stories, half of which are not finished. I start a story, then I don’t feel like finishing it (I’m lazy too).
Drawing is another one of my past times. I’m not very good, so I stick to cartoonish animals, since I can’t draw real things or humans. Usually they end up looking bloated and out of proportion-which is exactly what cartoons are!
I have a bunch of friends, none of whom know I’m on the YDR staff. I want them to read the paper and just think….I KNOW HER! They’re always cool, and I love them to death. Even to people who I’ve jus befriended I’m loyal to. I make friends really easily..so yeah.
Yeah, I’m a drama queen too. Acting is a serious passion of mine. I’ve been acting even longer than I’ve been writing. I’m waiting for some one to notice me. Broadway…Hollywood…I’m not picky, really.
Math…let’s just say, we don’t get along well. I get decent grades, but it’s not my favorite subject. It takes a while for numbers to compute in my head. I’m not sure why…usually I’m pretty fast…ignore what my friends say.
I have a ferret and a dog. My other ferret died on Memorial Day (R.I.P Exalo). My dog’s name is Maxi, she is 18 years old, and still going strong. She’s been around since..before I was born, so I’ve literally been with her my whole life. My living ferret, Glen, is a small thing. She was the runt of the litter, but she’s the alpha female. She used to drag the other ferret across the living room; he was two pounds heavier and almost an inch bigger. I actually entered Glen in a ferret show. She placed fifth, which was pretty good!….Yes. There are ferret shows.
Photography. I use my dad’s digital camera, but I hope if I save enough money, I’ll be able to buy a really nice one. My photo’s don’t turn out very well, but I have really creative ideas that could be interesting.
