I'm in my mid twenties and live in New Orleans with a lazy hound dog and my adorably awkward boyfriend. I love all of the imperfections and eccentricities that come with the city and can't imagine living anywhere else. I'm very interested in social justice and volunteerism, and I work for a non-profit rebuilding homes destroyed by Katrina. I love gardening, cooking and being outdoors.
I love being exposed to new and different music. Growing up I was pretty musical, so I appreciate dissonance and unexpected melodies. I mostly listen to indie and punk, but I've also got a soft spot in my heart for classic rock, New Orleans brass bands, classical, the occasional rap song, and roots music. As long as it's devoid of a techno beat, I am willing to try it.
I've been trying to read more lately and like to have a good mix of fiction and non-fiction. I'm a big fan of Vonnegut and David Sedaris, which I guess means that I have a taste for dark, tongue-in-cheek humor and social commentary. As far as non-fiction goes, I like history and anything related to progressive politics or slow living.
I haven't gone to a movie theater in quite a while, but I am an avid Netflix user. I tend to watch a lot of documentaries and dramas and steer clear of most chick flicks and comedies. I have a weird interest in Japanese horror movies, and I'm pretty obsessed with Hedwig & the Angry Inch and Rocky Horror Picture Show (I used to belong to one of the groups that dress up and act out the movie).
I'm a big fan of most of the HBO and Showtime series, in particular, Dexter, Weeds True Blood, and Six Feet Under. I'm pretty much always willing to watch a cooking reality show (Top Chef, Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, etc), as well as Man vs Food. Oh, Glee and Biggest Loser are also must watch shows in my house.
I like to make collages, postcards and notebooks. I love going to thrift store to find items to re-purpose I've been attempting to learn how to knit for a while with little to show for it so far. I also do some graphic / website design. I'm also really into baking and brewing my own beer.
