I have a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education...Unfortunately, no one is currently hiring.
Music is my core. I'm generally an Alternative music person, though I'll listen to just about anything that isn't Country or Rap. Soundtracks are also a big fav.
Reading is also a large part of my life. I don't read so much for pleasure anymore because of my schedule. But when I do find time to sit down, it's usually with an old favorite.
I'm not really all that picky about movies. I'm a good judge of character when it comes to knowing if I'll like a movie or not. I hate chick flicks--can't STAND them. I love horror, but only the jump-out-and-scare-you kind, not the bloody-gutsy-shank-you-till-you're-DEAD kind (ie: the SAW movies). It's gross. And it makes my teeth hurt... My favorite is How to Train Your Dragon
I prefer writing long-hand, though sometimes typing is just easier. I've had trouble with technology in the past...It repels me...and I'm not finding myself any luck as I get new and more exciting things that can break in the blink of an eye. I also name my inanimate objects, especially my stuffed animals.
My old laptop quit on me, which was a shame because I had a great deal of good stuff on there. My new laptop (Osiris) has only given me a little bit of trouble.[EDIT (01/29/11) My laptop monitor is falling off...Dangling, even. It's being held together by duct tape. I...am a techno-failure. Fo realz.][EDIT (08/21/12) New laptop. Purple! Covered with stickers. Works amazingly. Hopefully it lasts until my next tax refund when I can afford a new one. Because this one will more than likely be broken by then. *sigh* Also, I need a new camera. Because my other one was crushed. Ugh--why me?]
And now this bio is turning into a 30-volume encyclopedia, so I will end with this:
"When King Lear dies in Act 5, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written, 'He dies.' That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is 'He dies.' It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with 'He dies.' And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, but not because of the words 'He dies,' but because of the life we saw prior to the words. I've lived all five of my acts, Mahoney, and I am not asking you to be happy that I must go. I'm only asking that you turn the page, continue reading, and let the next story begin. And if anyone ever asks what became of me, you relate my life in all its wonder, and end it with a simple and modest 'He died.'" --Mr. Magorium, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium ~~~ Hovis: Courage. Despereaux: And truth. And honor. Hovis: Good. But mostly courage. ~The Tale of Despereaux (movie)
