My self-summary
So. Here's the great american novel because I wanted that extra 5% that comes with having 1000 words in my profile. Feel free to skim, or order the cliff notes.

I'm not quite sure where I'm headed, and I don't even know where I want to go, but I do know that when I find it, I'll know. I believe that we have to have faith that somehow everything is going to work out, otherwise there is no point in looking forward to the next day. I may have taken a few steps backwards, but I know in my heart, the depths of my soul, that there is something truly amazing lying ahead. I'll get there when I'm ready, the time will be right, and things will be as they are meant to be. There is a balance to life; with the good must also come the bad.

On a lighter note about the person I am, or the person I aspire to be, I would wander to the ends of the earth if I could. I absolutely love to travel, and to experience language and culture and just simply to watch the world around me. I don't like staying in one place too long. There is a wanderlust that ignites a fire in my veins when I have been home for too long. There world is out there, just waiting to be explored.

I am passionate about music. I play the clarinet, and I love to sing, and my cd collections is vast and oddly ecclectic. I own an iPod, but my stereo and walkman get just as much use. The feeling of holding that new cd in your hands is a feeling I'm just not ready to part with yet. I don't believe people have to be categorized by the music they listen to because I believe in the freedom to listen to any music that moves you. The segregation between fans in certain genres unnerves me. Music is life, and not every life is the same; just as every song, every bar, and every note are different.

I may be shy and distant when I first meet someone, but given time most people come to realize I make a good comrade. I don't easily let people in, but I treasure those that I do. And remember, I'm not as tough, as hard, or as cold, as I would like to think I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Not much right now. I work hard because I know that someday I'm going to get out of this town; that's my shining light at the end of the tunnel. I'm trying to sort things out within myself, but I would love very much to one day travel the world doing something that is helping people.
City Band will be starting up again soon, and it's time for me to pull out the old clarinet to get my embouchure back into proper playing condition.
I’m really good at
I could give you a list a mile long of what I'm not good at because somwhere along the road in my life humility really struck a chord with me. Unfortunately, I don't really take compliments well because I believe that good work/deeds should be a standard, not the exception.

If I had to pick something that I am good at I would say being ridiculously dramatic. The best way to to brighten someone's day is to give them a big smile and an over the top wave. Also, being eccentric, crazy, or silly can come in handy when trying to through the day to day muck.
The first things people usually notice about me
Right now? Probably my hair. It's purple. I love playing with fun colors in my hair. Life is too short; so why not throw out the mundane and live an extraordinary life? If we don't amuse ourselves, who will? I have also had red bangs, magenta streaks, and I kind of did a peacock color thing too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think The Soul Thief by Charles Baxter is an amazing book. It's actually the first book in a long time that really made me think which I find refreshing. My most worn, tattered book on my shelf is Demon In My View by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I like her fictional world because the lines between good and bad are fuzzy and blurred. There are lots of books that pique my interests, but I always enjoy finding new ones.

As for movies, I love Dead Poets Society and The Boondock Saints, but of course there are many other movies I really enjoy. More recently, I've found I really enjoy Easy A because of how witty and sarcastic it is. I've come to find that I love Netflix because of how easy it is for someone like me who can never decide on what to watch.

Music should have it's own section. My favorite genre is electro/euro pop or pop/punk or 60s pop/rock or really anything that make me want to move, but I listen to a wide range of music from rock to rap to classical to gospel; it just depends on the mood. My cd collection is either close to or over 300 albums, I haven't counted in a while, and I'm always accumulating more music. I am one of those that actually spend time JUST listening to music, as opposed to having it as background noise.

I don't watch television that often. My work hours are kind of all over the place so tv schedules are of no importance to me, but there are a few show that I make sure I watch. I'm a huge Supernatural fan; I've been watching since the beginning, and I'll watch it til the end. Glee is also one my favorites because I spent quite a few years in show choirs. I've recently become enamored with White Collar. My dad always used to say the truth is the best con as I was growing up. My all time favorite show would have to have been Daria (I was Daria one year for halloween, and sadly, most people didn't know who she was).

I love strawberries. I go picking every summer. I'm a vegetarian; I eat dairy (but I drink soy milk) and on rare occasions I'll eat eggs (preferably from an organic, free range farm). Not eating meat is my choice. I don't comdemn those who do eat meat. And, I do have one (and only one) exception to my vegetarianism; I will eat crab rangoon because they are that awesome.
Six things I could never do without
Number One: MY MUSIC
Number Two: My Passport
Number Three: A Paper and Pen

I really haven't figured out the others yet, but I've got time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to avoid thinking. I like meditating to clear my mind of the stress and worries that tend to weave through everyday life. If I think too much about the future or what is to come, it just gets kind of depressing.
On a typical Friday night I am
working, or just hanging out with my friends or roomies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not okay with death.
You should message me if
If you've seen the little blue people running around in the night. They're out there. Beware. They've come for us.
p.s. i don't bite, i think.

Or, If you want to go see a scary movie or just hang out listening to a really great album.
The two of us
