Grew Up… with her mom. Her mom and dad were divorced before she was two, and from then on her father was almost uninvolved in her life, and her mother is much too involved.
Living… in Cambridge where Elizabeth, known as “Lizzie”, attends Harvard on a journalism scholarship.
Profession… aspiring writer. The first article Lizzie wrote was for Seventeen Magazine about how her Dad disappeared. Seventeen wanted to publish it as an article, but wanted a happy ending where her father came back. He never did, but she gave Seventeen the story they wanted.
Interests… writing, drugs, and sex. Lizzie is starting to lose interest with her writing though, now that she’s started having sex and abusing drugs. She snorts coke and smokes pot to help make the ecstasy last longer.
Relationship Status… single. Lizzie was a virgin when she came to Harvard, but then she met the best-looking guy on campus named Noah. She celebrated her loss of innocence by throwing herself a “Lost My Cherry” party. That didn’t go over well with Noah, so he broke up with her. She is now dating another guy named Rafe.
Challenge… battling depression. Unfortunately, the Prozac pills Lizzie is taking don’t seem to help. She feels she is going crazy. As she says, "I think madness is too glamorous a term to convey what happens to most people who are losing their minds. That word is too exciting, too literary, too interesting in its connotations, to convey the boredom, the slowness, the dreariness, the dampness of depression. Depression is pure dullness, tedium straight up."
Personality… addictive, reckless, and self-involved. Though we’re not sure if her self-centeredness is due to her depression or if she genuinely believes the world revolves around her. She has so much going for her, but she just can’t seem to deal with the real world.
