Despite this moment of panic, you really do know yourself, you just don't know the right things to say. That's how I feel about this self-summary paragraph.
In short, I love to write and am passionate about what I do. In addition, I love to draw and doodle. I want to perfect my talents as a creative artist and use them in my future. On an average day, I'm doodling, laughing, telling awful jokes, using pop culture references, and being cynical. I also write...a lot.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Don't mess with my children's books. I can talk forever on Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, the Series of Unfortunate Events, or even Charlie Bone. I mean, a sociology class can be taught on these types of novels.
Comic Books. I can feel the judgement from your side of the screen. I mean, comic books are for children, right? Have you picked one up lately? There is some really great material going on in the graphic novel medium.
Authors I read: Isabel Allende, Jack Kerouac, Orson Welles, Gary Soto, and the list simply continues.
Shows: The limit does not exist? No, it's anything supernatural related (the show included). Oh, and I'm always game for a good detective show, like Law and Order: SVU and Criminal Minds. It might be the sociologist in me. I can talk for ages on the writing in various shows, the tropes used, and how poorly the casting is. I could probably be a pop culture major.
Movies: I'm down for action and adventure films, but will sit and watch anything animated. Don't get me started on Hayao Miyazaki or Pixar. I've been described as a movie buff before, but I really wouldn't say I am. I love films like Shawshank Redemption, Steven King's It (scared the crap out of me as a child), and Boondock Saints. Any SAW films make me queasy and I scare quite easily. I'm always down for a good cult film. Pulp Fiction, I'm looking at you.
Music: I'm all over the place. I'm not a country person, but I've jammed to Drunk on a Plane plenty of times after a friend introduced it to me. I love classic rock and will always sing along to Queen, The Rolling Stones, Journey, and Santana. I grew up on the sounds of Motown and Oldies. I mean, you can't call yourself a San Franciscan without listening to War, Tower of Power, and all the oldies classics, you know, those songs that play on Sunday Nights. Honestly, though, my current playlist is loads of indie and alternative rock like Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit, Mumford & Sons, and Milky Chance. I'll get down to some Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, and Watsky any day.
Food: Mexican, because it's the taste of my childhood. Oh, and Chinese, and wine, wait, that's not food. Since I began living in the south, I have a newfound appreciation for gumbo and beignets.
