By that, I do not mean to imply that I am self-loathing or Republican (I am neither) - Politics depress me, and I try to stay out of it.
Generally speaking, I tend to be positive and energetic. I'm always singing, whether it is at home cooking or cleaning, walking to class, or randomly serenading someone in the hall. I love to be around other people, to go out and have a good time, but there are times when I can be terribly unsocial. I'm actually rather shy, and I struggle to meet new people in normal situations. I played soccer for years, so I do love playing sports and being active, but I'm out of practice due to school, which is sad. I love to dance (ballet, Latin, or other), and I tend to do it in inappropriate places.
I'm a kid at heart, but I can be serious when I need to. I'm a caring, loyal, and intelligent individual, and though I am relatively young, I would certainly be willing to settle down with someone.
I'm in a period of transition, so I am seeing where life takes me. I guess I am trying to prepare to take orchestral auditions, so that means if I were to win an audition, I would relocate to that city. For now, I'm teaching private music lessons to about 10 students, and I've got an extra job to help with stability. If I can get enough students and/or enough performance opportunities, I could see myself staying in Austin.
Being awkward. Please accept that.
People have also told me that I'm rather graceful.
Books: Popular ones, such as Harry Potter, Twilight (I'm mildly ashamed), the Host, Life of Pi, etc. Some classic literature, and some not so classic, like Shadow of the Wind. I'm a terribly slow reader, and I don't usually make it my prime leisurely activity.
Movies: I pretty much like all movies that I watch (I stay away from Will Farrell-like comedies, but that doesn't mean I won't enjoy them). I will not enjoy horror movies. Most other ones, though, are lovely. I usually find a reason to cry, whether it's sad or happy....
I'm a musician, so I like a lot of music. Really vulgar rap isn't really for me, but neither is country. I sing a lot of broadway, and I'm in favor of pop. Although I know that I should, I don't often make classical music my first choice for listening.
I haven't had a TV in my room for years, and because I know that I have an addictive personality, I try to avoid watching TV, especially the popular shows. I actually really like anime (I haven't grown up yet) - I watched all 366 episodes of Bleach online last year - I am both impressed with and ashamed of myself. :/
Food. I love it. I go through phases of really healthy eating, but it is complimented by regular intake of terribly unhealthy food. For example, I lived waaaaay too close to Taco Bell in grad school....
Chocolate (and the like)
