The Story of a Girl

Who am I? Right now, "That's one secret you'll never know" and "Jean Valjean" are the only thing I can think of as answers. But really my name is Brittany and I am a 20 something English major and cinema minor and soon-to-be college graduate. I like parentheses way too much and write way too many run on sentences. I have a deep love of cinema that only comes close to my love of Harry Potter.
