Greetings! I'm a 20 something year old who is attempting to figure out this whole life thing!
I graduated from college more than a few years ago with a degree in education and am currently working a standard desk job.
I try to keep myself as busy as possible through blogging, friends, hiking, biking, movies and enjoying a good computer game or book. I enjoy being out in the sun! I love animals, especially my fat cat Preston. I am also a super fan of moose.
I love movies! I get a big kick out of following reviews and box office predictions each week.
I enjoy going to the movies in all venues from drive in theaters to giant IMAX theaters. 3-D or 2-D, cartoon or horror, I love it all!
Some of my favorite movies include: The Departed, A League of Their Own, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Cars, Goodfellas, Scream, Enchanted, Big Daddy, Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands, Titanic, A Knight's Tale, Batman Begins, Gone With The Wind, the list goes on and on!
I generally enjoy mainstream pop music. I do have an appreciation for some classic artists such as Billy Joel, The Beatles and Journey. Pretty random, no?
The band I've seen the most in concert is Dave Matthews Band, although it's been a few years since I've seen them. The best concert I've been to was a Hanson concert, that's right, mmmbop!
I tend to take an excessive number of books out of the library at a time and tend to not look at them. I do however reading a variety of non-fiction books, particularly about the area I live in as well as self help, diet, organization and how-to books. I'm always on the quest to make life better and easier to live in a positive light.
I rarely read fiction, but I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan!
Although every once in a while I get an itch to be crafty, I can't say I'm terribly good at it. I LOVE craft supplies though and can spend hours in a craft store!
Some craft supplies that I love include...
Ribbon, particularly unique ribbon, I use it for my hair :)
Tissue paper, for wrapping my swaps up with
Note cards, greeting cards
PENS of all kinds and all colors
I LOVE when people hand make things and send them to me, I'm always envious of other people's talents and I love being able to showcase them in my life.
I have a small collection of the following items and am always on the lookout to add to it:
Souvenir pins (I pin them onto my hiking pack)
Mickey Mouse items (ESPECIALLY Mickey Mouse glasses/cups/mugs/shot glasses etc)
Ballet flats (the shoes), the more unique the pattern or color the better
I also love beauty items and have a pretty big collection of lotions, body washes, soaps, salts, scrubs etc. I love handmade/all natural bath items. My favorite scents are almond, coconut and "awaken" scents like orange.
I enjoy reading magazines, my favorites are Real Simple, People and Glamour.
I love all shades of blues, purples and pinks. Soft greens and yellows are my favorite as well. Black has no place in my life, except to convince people that I look skinny! ;)
Things must smell good around me! I love candles, car fresheners, plug ins and sprays. I like beachy scents (coconut, ocean waves, sea air), warm scents (apple pie, apple cider, mulled spices mmmm!) and fresh scents (linen, baby powder, fresh flowers like lilac).
All things Adirondack.
All things glitter.
Browns and orange, seafood, snow, thunderstorms, romance novels, sweet tea, high heeled shoes, negativity, dark chocolate, The Humane Society commercials, skulls, lemons in my drinks, coffee, stuffed animals, annoying people, musky scents, bugs and my car....it's terrible.
I appreciate hearing from you! I'm here to make new friends and to learn more about other countries, cultures and lifestyles. I encourage you to check out my blog to learn even more about me and my adventures!
With that said I'm new to Swap-Bot and appreciate anything I can do to make it easier on you to have me as your swap partner. Don't be shy and thanks to anyone who has helped me to be a better swap buddy! :)
