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.
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.
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.
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.
Number Two: My Passport
Number Three: A Paper and Pen
I really haven't figured out the others yet, but I've got time.
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.
