Favorite Television

I don't have cable so I mostly keep up with TV shows through Netflix or Hulu/Youtube. Even then I don't really want that much!

I love

  • Grey's Anatomy
  • House
  • Skins
  • Pushing Daisies
  • The Office(American version)
  • Stella
  • Kids in the Hall

Favorite Books

I love books. And don't read nearly enough of them sadly.

  • The Great Gatsby
  • any of Augusten Burrough's works
  • Catcher in the Rye
  • Vonnegut
  • David Sedaris

I tend to like satirical works and books that make you think. I would love to get book suggestions from anyone willing to give them!

Favorite Movies

My favorite movies are constantly changing.

Genre-wise, I enjoy independent, drama, dark comedy, documentaries, and musicals.

Some movies that would fit on my all time favorites list:

  • Stand By Me
  • Empire Records
  • SLC Punk
  • The Breakfast Club
  • The Fall
  • Big Fish
  • 30 Days of Night

About Me

I'm a 23 year old college student living in a big city that makes me miss my suburban up bringing(but not enough to move back). I study psychology and am fascinated by mental disorders. I hope to become a therapist one day, working with teenagers.

I currently work as a dog walker/cat sitter and enjoy it most of the time. It does get physically exhausting but it keeps me in shape! Before that, I worked with inner city juvenile sex offenders.

I am mom to 4 cats:Piper, Sinatra, Lola, and Sofia, who are my babies. They are all rescues and were found on the mean streets of Philly. PLEASE NOTE:My items may have a stray cat hair in/on/around. If you are allergic to cats or have a general aversion to pet hair, please let me know and I will do my best to keep the hairs here!

I love satire, abstraction, writing, words of all kinds, odd things.

I am a wanna-be blogger trying to get serious about keeping up with my neglected little corner of the web.

I am new to swapping but have been looking for a web site like this one for a long time. I'm so excited to have found it!

**I DO NOT smoke so everything will come from a smoke free household. **

Re: postcards: If you happen to send my a postcard, I would love for you to write your favorite/a favorite quote or song lyric on the back. :)

**Re: my blog. There is a chance that I will talk about or photograph what I am sending out. If you have an upcoming swap from me and want to be suprised, don't look at my blog for a couple of days after I hit sent **

If you have not recieved something from me, please PM before rating. Swaps will ALWAYS go out before the deadline and tags/wishlists/WTAs will be sent within two weeks. Thank you!!

Hi! I got the 'Something odd and original' today. It is definitely odd and original! I have no idea what it is supposed to be used for! If you do, please let me know!! And Thanks! I do like it. :)

I hope that your furbaby is ok!

Sigh You do know how to make me swoon! ;]

lois on Nov 7, 2010:

OK. have you read Dave Eggers' "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" ? You might love it! I did and I like alot of your fav authors...

xSugar on Nov 4, 2010:

AAAANNND....time to be a creeper. Again. LOL.

The stuff you posted on your blog is fabulous! I knew it. You are extremely talented! I don't know why you are scared about showing it to people.

I've always disliked drawing realism, mostly because it never turns out right for me. I wish I could since it's so impressive...but I guess that grass is always greener? I think every artist has to have a strong point, and everyone always wishes their strong point was something else, haha.

Lastly, I absolutely love that your blog is called "Beautifully Picaresque." Satire (and picaresque) is my favorite.
