"That sickness--that feeling inside you? That's weakness. Don't let it divide you." -Glory, Hollywood Undead
Once upon a time, there was a girl named Raffi Tanzen Starke.
She was fifteen. Most people saw her as a "delinquent". “This freakin’ skateboard stuff, it’s not a sport. It’s a way of life.” – Northwest Documentary
She read a lot of books. She figured that the more she knew, in general, the better off she'd be.
"There's a reason we're born with brains in our heads, not rocks."-Christopher Paolini
She danced a lot-she could do ballet and classical, but she preferred street dancing.
She listened to music almost constantly-mainly Hollywood Undead and Eminem, but she also went through huge Rise Against, Simple Plan, Green Day, and Three Days Grace phases.
She liked to express herself through drawing and graffiti and whatnot. Especially graffiti.
"It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything." -Fight Club
She's a skater, and loves hanging out with skaters. Every moment of every day when she's not skating, she's wishing she was. "I just motor through school in the morning and then go skating." Ryan Sheckler
Ayite, enough with the third person. I'm RTS, but that's Starke to you. “Nobody even understands the reality of skateboarding.” – Josiah Gatlyn. I speak English fluently (duh), Espanol (algo), and Deutsch (ein wenig). I consider myself a relatively deep kid. "I have nothing to declare except my genius." -Oscar Wilde. Skateboarding is my passion. My life.
"You will find no answers here, only choices."-Brent Weeks
I recently acquired a tennis ball, whom I named CASH MONEY (or just Cash for short) in honor of Ryan Dunn, may he rest in peace June 20, 2011 :,(
I hate stereotypes, me being a skater and all. I am NOT on drugs, nor do I worship Satan. And the fact that I can't stand little kids has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I skate. So there.
Arbitrary Info: gang affliation=Crip, I hate people who tuck in their shirts by choice, I don't eat green vegetables, "A glass of water just isn't my cup of tea."-Mark Hanson, chocolate>vanilla, if you hit me I will hit you back harder, I don't like spaghetti sauce, Street Dreams is both my favorite movie and my favorite song, I like quotes ("If you're gonna quote someone, why not quote a genius?" -Erik Noonan), I think Jersey Shore is dumb, "I consider skateboarding an art form, a life style, and a sport." -Tony Hawk, and I don't believe in parents.
Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there.' I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.
