I'm a brown-eyed, brown-haired girl with a happy smile on her face and a heart ready for true love! I'm a musician and a writer first and foremost and forever, but right now I'm an elementary music teacher, writing teacher, and Spanish teacher until I can go back for my masters and in turn become something better. (This year I'm also teaching psychology.) I'm certified K-12, but I don't plan on teaching forever. My goal is to finish my English degree at The Citadel then pursue something in the field of research and writing. My most recent aspiration is to write for a music classroom magazine. If I thought there was money in it, I'd become a professional musician or conductor. I'd primarily like to work with film scores. I'm a Renaissance Chic. I like to know a lot about everything and almost anything and to expand my knowledge daily.
I love being surrounded by color and being comfy. I don't mind a day or so once in a while lounging in pajamas just to relax. I love that I'm never bored and easily entertained. I must have at least a million hobbies. These include listening to and singing all kinds of music, talking, reading, writing, and laughing. Rarely, but occasionally, when I have the time this also includes coloring, scrap booking, playing board games or card games, or just throwing a ball around outside with my nieces and nephews. I'm not big on watching TV or movies.
I enjoy being outdoors occasionally when it's not so hot like in autumn or spring (as if SC has either of these . . . ). Mainly it's taking a walk, relaxing on a blanket, or an impromptu picnic. I appreciate watching the sunrise, or evening walks on the beach because it would be spending time with someone that means something to me. Sometimes it's nice to just share the quiet. When I retire I want to move to the mountains of North Carolina where I can actually enjoy the seasons.
I'm also a performing musician. I play actively in my church ensemble and have played in an orchestra. I also continue to play with my college flute choir as an alumnus.
I also try to spend some time every week with my friends and/or family. What little time is left is spent lounging with my dog in my quiet house.
I've been told that I'm good at being there for my friends and not being too self centered.
I'm also a very talented musician playing flute primarily, but also piano and a little bit of saxophone and singing in my spare time. (Can we say karaoke?!?) When I'm in the car, it's usually windows down and volume up so I can belt out all of my favorite songs! I recently participated in a contest to win $500. Didn't win, but I had a great time trying!
Favorite movies are 80's movies (Pretty in Pink, Goonies, Top Gun), action -especially spy or criminal action- (True Lies, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Gone in 60 Seconds) and cartoon movies (Ice Age, Emperor's New Groove). I like movies that are quotable. Sometimes I like drama if the cast line up is good (Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, etc). I don't do scary/horror AT ALL, and I don't usually like comedy, but sometimes my friends talk me into it. I'm not really thrilled with the way Hollywood is using everyone's ideas instead of creating new ones. Are we so technologically advanced that we're in a creative funk?
My favorite TV show is NCIS. I have seasons one, two, three and eight of NCIS on DVD. It's definitely one of my favorite free-time fillers. (Who's willing to share 4-7?)
Favorite music is almost ANYTHING out there. My favorites are Smashing Pumpkins, One Republic, Josh Groban, John Powell, Dave Matthews, Matchbox 20 / Rob Thomas, Flyleaf, Tori Amos, Casting Crowns, Imogen Heap, Adele, and Brooks & Dunn, and soundtrack mixes or scores. Basically I have a 30 gig Zune full of all kinds of music I enjoy. I really enjoy instrumental (though not necessarily classical) music. Sometimes the music speaks better without words. I've also been writing several songs of my own on piano, guitar, or flute. Only a few have words, but the ones that don't are still steeped in meaning. Recently, my church worship paster asked if we could perform one of my songs during a service! I'm amazed!
Favorite food is definitely chicken, especially from a Mexican restaurant. I also prefer salty snacks like popcorn, pretzels, and chips. I just don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I have been enjoying Corbett as of late. My favorite tea is Tazo Passion Tea. Who knew hibiscus could taste so good?
Along the line of favorites, I've noticed that I really like self-shot pics of guys in their cars. And I like guys in dress shirts with the sleeves rolled up. I also really like those who claim to have a plethora of knowledge or to be pits of useless knowledge and trivia. I find those kinds of people to be the most interesting.
3) my hobbies
4) air conditioning
5) comfy clothes/pajamas
6) good toilet paper. I always answer the "stranded on an island" question with toilet paper.
8) thunderstorms Nothing beats a stormy day curled up at home listening to the rain!
9) Something to write on and with.
10) A book with words and pictures.
To be completely honest, my mind never ever shuts off. Lyrics, to-do lists, random thoughts . . . They just keep coming!
It's very important to me that we be friends first. Time will tell if there is more to come.
You should also message me if you enjoy music, reading, writing, teaching, learning, and/or are a vessel of useless knowledge.
