About Me

I haven't been active on here in a looooong time... hopefully I can change that soon :)

Favorite Music

I pretty much like anything other than rap, country and maritime music (think Great Big Sea). My favourite music is anything indie, rock, alternative, jazz, classical and even ambient stuff.

Favorite Books

I like to read anything and everything as long as it's not some goofy romance novel. Yuck. Everything from biographies, to true crime, to fiction.

My particular favourites are ones that have 'endings', if that makes sense. Have you ever watched a movie and been completely pissed off at how rushed the ending was or how it seemed like it just didn't have one? I like things to be wrapped up so I'm not left wondering about it later. I feel the same way with books. I have ADHD, so I think.. a LOT. I get distracted by my thoughts, and yes, that even means getting distracted because I was thinking about a book I read like 10 years ago that pissed me off because it didn't really 'end'.

I love poetry books. Edgar Allan Poe is by far my favourite and I enjoy ones written by poets from the beat generation (ie. Jack Kerouack).

Books that leave me feeling like I'm doing some kind of weird acid trip are awesome. I don't do drugs, but considering how I've felt when I've read some of the things I have is just mental, in so many words. Nothing keeps my attention better than a book that makes me use my brain throughout.

I try to read as much as I can, but with a full-time job of 12 hour shifts and tons of overtime, it's pretty difficult. Whenever I have a break in between shifts, the first thing I do is grab a book because I miss them so much.

And lastly, I even enjoy reading some textbooks. If it's about a subject that I'm interested in, then I don't mind reading them, and I guess in the back of my head, I like knowing I'm filling my brain with new information about things I like.

Thanks ;-) But it's not necessary with a translation, I'm quite sure I got it ;-) If you're ever interested in doing a private swap for semi-vegan recipes I would love to swap with you - I'm not vegan, but trying to live more vegan-like :-)
