I really don't have a lot of time to read books, and grad school
mostly killed any pleasure I once found in reading. I spend most of
my time reading psychological reports, dissertations, essay
questions, and other work stuff. My favorite book of all time is
The Monk by Matthew G Lewis. Not only is it a brilliant gothic
novel, but Lewis wrote it in less than 3 months when he was still a
I'm more into independent films than big hollywood movies, but I
like any movie that is well done. I love Bollywood and Asian
horror. I also like 3D movies, and want to check out the DBox
theaters like they have in Austin and Houston and apparently every
other big city besides Dallas.
My musical tastes are pretty varied, from alternative, old country
and western, rock, pop, Broadway tunes, Top 40, to Indian music. I
love local music and indie bands, but jazz puts me to sleep, and
new country hurts my brain. Some of my favorite bands include Blue
October, Band of Skulls, Dashboard Confessional, Bat for Lashes,
Airborne Toxic Event, and Third Eye Blind.
I'm vegan, but don't think for a second that I eat salads LOL I do
love raw food, though, as well as Thai, Korean, Indian, Mexican,
and Mediterranean. Some of my favorite dishes are pad kee mao,
mandoo, sukhi bhaji, pizza, purple rice pudding, and anything with
chocolate, of course.
