About meMy life has gone in a completely different direction than I would have thought 3 years ago. I was going to move to NYC and be Carrie Bradshaw. I want to travel. I like beer. I wish I could drink martinis but vodka makes me sick. I like food, especially Italian and Japanese. I could live off sushi. I adore sitting in a coffee shop and reading all day. My best friend is my little sis. I love music. I want to learn to play the guitar. I love to read- my favorite books are definitely fantasy-Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings- and classics- Anna Karenina, anything by Jane Austen. I love to shop although I wish I had the patience for thrift stores- I just can't stand to dig for hours. My favorite store is the grocery store. I hate my job- its the most bored I have ever been. I can't wait to have a career that I am passionate about. I'm obsessed with politics. Oh, and I play roller derby with the Mad Wreckin' Dolls.
