I play the violin and viola, but I listen to all kinds of music, not just classical - pop, folk, punk-rock, even techno sometimes. I've pretty much always got my earbuds in. I'm determinedly amateur about music, though; I think it's less fun if I have to take it really seriously.
An alarming amount of my free time online gets spent on fanfiction. Yes, I'm one of those chicks who writes gay internet porn! If I've read it, watched it or seen the music video, chances are I've considered where the story goes after that, or how the characters got that way. Honestly, I don't really get people who can put down a book or turn off the television without wanting to see what else could happen in that story.
I go through phases of interests (historically, whatever television show I happen to be watching at the moment) but right now my main thing is professional tennis and soccer/football. FC Barcelona, man. How anybody can watch that bunch of magical midgets and not fall in love I'll never know. I'm kind of a weird sports fan in that I don't really enjoy watching matches, but I love reading about them, and all the drama surrounding pro sports in general. It's really cool to follow the narrative arc of an athlete or a team in the media over a season.
I don't do one-night stands, so if that's what you're looking for, I'm not the girl for you. Also, I believe in being open to all possibilities and that you never know who you'll fall in love with, which is why I'm still listed as bi, but I'm not super into dudes as a general rule. I mean, I like them as people or whatever, I'm just not really interested in their junk. So gents: if you want someone for activities that involve taking off your trousers, there's nothing wrong with that! But maybe look elsewhere.
so many movies, so little time. all-time top three are Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Much Ado About Nothing and The Importance of Being Earnest. Saving Face is up there too! I haven't seen much television recently but I like shows that make me smile without also making me cringe with second-hand embarrassment too much; the last show I watched on the regular was Hart of Dixie, and I used to really love White Collar.

I love all of kinds of food! I can't eat anything spicy and I'm picky about flavors but in almost every restaurant there is at least one dish that I love to death. I have a huge sweet tooth, too!
