My self-summary
Hi! My name is Rachel and I can be kind of cool sometimes. For the most part I'm a shut in but I've sort of run out of Netflix shows to watch so that may change soon!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working part time and planning on taking some community college classes soon. I miss going to school. I also take pictures... sometimes.
I’m really good at
*Photography, but I suppose that is a matter of opinion.
*Unintentionally making situations awkward.
*I am awesome at cooking, especially vegetables and or delicious baked goods.
*Collecting gnomes without buying them
*making excuses
The first things people usually notice about me
My roommate said my eyes. So that, I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
George R.R. Martin, Haruki Murakami. When I was a kid my parent's friends gave me every Terry Pratchett Book written up till then, I read them all. Finally got around to reading Tolkien, apparently it took my stoner phase for me to be truly engaged in his writing. Occasionally I will go for some Kurt Vonnegut, Palahniuk, and Huxley. Though I'm not wild about Dystopian futures.

My favorite movie is The Royal Tenenbaums, as well as everything else directed by Wes Anderson, I really love color. I like most older action movies (like faceoff and total recall) Labyrinth, Species 1&2, A brief history of time, Waynes World, most of the James Bond films, plenty of Arnie classics, and Clueless. I watched Melancholia the other day and it is one of my new favorites. I tend to watch a lot of documentaries.

Musically I like noisy/silly bands but my favorite are the ones that play small shows, avoid stages, and hang out. I find that big commercialized concerts bore me. But I would like to attend a blue grassy festival, I went to Hardly Strictly in San Francisco last year and loved the vibe. I firmly Believe that dub is dead, the world seems to disagree. HipHop is Rad, I almost got an NWA tattoo and still kinda want it. I could be more specific. Let's say Sunset Rubdown, Eric Clapton, The Kinks, Simon and Garfunkel, Radiohead, The Books, Cake, David Bowie, Islands, Múm, there's more I'm sure of it.

I am a pescetarian (I eat seafood but no red meat or poultry) but have been some form of vegetarian since I was 7 (ranging from pescetarian to Vegan) . My favorite foods are mostly from autumn: Pumpkin Pies, Butternut Squash soup, and Mashed Potatoes. I love Japanese and Thai food. My favorite dessert is probably lemon meringue pie, but I enjoy going out for Bobba Tea and Froyo. Did you read all that? Why?
The six things I could never do without
A camera
(crystal cats)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
See above + existentialism and gardening. Oh and clouds too!

I spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to relate myself to other people and get flustered when I fail.
On a typical Friday night I am
-Painting my furniture
-In the darkroom
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want all my clothes to be Lolita dresses, like that.
