Hi! I'm 29 years old, female, living in New York City with a boring office job, but dreams of moving into a nice little suburban town, with rolling green hills, where everyone knows my name :)
I tolerate pretty much anything, but my favorite genres are hip hop and rock, weighing more toward the rock... also a lot of mellower stuff too... In general, some of my faves are Third Eye Blind, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Evanescence, Enya, Nickelback, Imogen Heap/Frou Frou, Death Cab for Cutie, A Perfect Circle, Dashboard Confessional, Daughtry, Dido, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayer, Lil' Kim, Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, Usher, David Gray... need I go on!? ...oh and I like techno/trance too :) For anyone in a CD swap with me, feel free to send me anything you like; I love hearing new music, and I think I'm pretty open-eared to new sounds.
I'm not a huge movie person, but I have been moving more into the movie scene lately... my faves are Harry Potter (LOVE the books!!), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Vanilla Sky, Memento, Garden State, Shutter Island, Pan's Labrynth (though it was way too gorey!)... errrr... and I'm sure there are some others I can't think of at the moment... mostly philosophical-like stuff... I also like watching comedies for their entertainment value :) Knocked Up and Hot Tub Time Machine were great!
Whose line is it anyway?, The Daily Show, Everybody loves Raymond... and anything else that is REALLY funny! I really like Spongebob too! (I'm a big kid!) :P Oh, and how could I forget The Dog Whisperer!?...and my newly found favorite show is How I Met Your Mother - hilarious, great lessons and awesome music too.
Ok, so my favorite book of all time is The Little Prince - I read it in French class and fell in love with it. Yes, it's a children's book, but I recommend it to all adults! and yes, they have published it in English! :) I'm also reading "The Tao of Pook" right now, which a friend recommended to me, and I'm loving it. Great lessons to be learned!
I am also a huge fan of the Harry Potter series. There is another book I've read called "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle, and that was kind of a life-changing one for me... very meaningful. I'm recently into books that inspire self-inquiry and self-awareness. There are a few other books, maybe, but overall I'm really not a huge reader.
My main obsessions at the moment (and for quite a while, really) are: baking and cake decorating, music, photography, snowboarding, Buddhism (from the "maintaining peace of mind" point of view, not the religious) and yoga... Anything related to any of those things would be grand! But, I like arts and crafts in general and I'm not picky :) I also am an animal freak! I particularly LOVE squirrels (and other cute and furry creatures)! :) I really love nature in general - hiking and hanging out at the beach, in particular. I'm trying to get into more swaps, but right now I'm trying my hand at mostly CDs, ATCs and matchboxes.
Like I said, I'm not picky... I'm basically a big kid at heart. Also a romantic and someone who's into philosophy and things that keep me and the people around me happy :)... When choosing a swap for me, anything a 5 year old would like, OR anything philosophical-like (yes, TOTALLY opposite ends of the spectrum!) would be perfect, I'm sure... but I'm not picky, so send whatever you feel! :) I love candles and candle holders, either uniquely shaped or great smelling. My fave colors are deep reds/burgundy, taupe, and any "deep" colors - I'm not that into pastels... oh and I love ribbons :) and any kinds of paper scraps or magazine clippings are cool too... Also, if you have any "directions" on how to do new crafts, I would love to get those, since I like trying new things, but just need a little push :)... Hmm, let me know if you want me to add any more info! :)
