I'm a 1st grade teacher and wanna be hippie chick who refuses to grow up. I am an avid reader. I'm a part-time yoga teacher. I've read all the Harry Potter's ( I have to, it's my job) and am currently reading a melange of things. I finally managed to pick up The Hobbitt, and am now on to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, after much prodding by my boyfriend. I like clever writers, like Terry Pratchett, Christopher Moore, and Auturo Perez-Reverte but-hands down-my favorite author right now is Paulo Coelho. He is brilliant! As for Twilight-I don't get it. I forced myself to read the books last summer and found them meh.
I'm an on again, off again artist. I'd like to learn how to sew-I have an awesome sewing machine that my mom gave me. Unfortunately, I've forgotton everything I learned in my home-ec sewing class. Oh! and I've been knitting the same roll brim hat for about two years. I also like to glue shells on boxes and mirrors for a victorian-nautical look.
I'm pretty happy with most everything I recieve. I've only been flaked on a few times, and have met some terrific people on Swap-Bot. I like to spread joy, and so I will most likely give you a heart-especially if I feel like you put effort into your swap. ** If I am late sending out a swap, please don't hesitate to contact me. I may have simply (cack!) forgotten.*
Dave Matthews Band, Incubus, Kaiser Chiefs, White Stripes, the Fray, OK, Go!, Lilly Allen, Gwen Stefani, Katie Perry, Keane, Phoenix, Passion Pit, CSS, Weezer, crazy old school techno and industrial, basically your "adult-alternative" genre of music,upbeat and "dancey", reggae, or jam-band...
Eurotrip, Contact, Garden State, Nacho Libre, Office Space, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Swingers, Dazed and Confused, Love, Actually, Blood and Chocolate, Bridget Jones Diary-usually, if I'm going to watch a movie, it's going to be of the "light and frothy" variety. Although, I recently saw Up in the Air and really, really liked it.
Arrested Development,the Office, Modern Family, The Daily Show, Firefly, The Tudors, Dexter. I have become completely obsessed and enamored with Dr. Who.

chocolate chip cookies, anything chocolate for that matter, hot teas, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I'm trying to cook more often, so I like the idea of collecting recipes. I'm also a vegan/vegitarian if left to my own devices.
