I'm in my early thirties. I've been married for eight years. We have a 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. I'm a Christian. I absolutely love to read, and I like to write. I graduated with a B.A. in English and one minor in Business and another minor in Italian. Parlo un po' di italiano. I currently am a stay-at-home wife, but I do freelance editing and I'm rediscovering my passion for writing. I'm not that great with cooking, but I like to bake. I love to watch anime. I'm obsessed with tigers and other wild cats. One day I'm going to pet a tiger (most likely a cub). And I've finally reached my dream of visiting Italy!!!
I like all sorts of music, except for hard rock or any music where you can't understand the lyrics because they're screaming. I listen to some country music. I enjoy classical. I listen to alternative and pop and Christian music. And the list goes on.
My favorite band right now is MUSE. I admit to liking the Backstreet Boys. I'm intrigued by Hatsune Miku, a singing synthesizer application. I like the Veggie Tale music.
Though I listen to music, I probably couldn't tell you most of the singers' names or the titles of the songs.
I'm a voracious reader. Some of my favorites include the following: The Hunger Games trilogy, Mortal Instruments series, Tiger's Curse (Colleen Houck) series, Clockwork series, Les Miserables, Narnia series, Harry Potter series, Interview with a Vampire series (Memnoch the Devil in particular), the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dante's Inferno and Purgatorio, works by Shakespeare, Left Behind series, the Vampire Diaries series, The Host by Stephenie Meyer, works by Edgar Allan Poe, Inkworld trilogy, and Pride and Prejudice.
Some of my favorite YA authors are Suzanne Collins, Cassandra Clare, Philip Pullman, Richelle Mead, Kelley Armstrong, Meg Cabot, P.C. Cast, Garth Nix, Rick Riordan, L.J. Smith, Ellen Schreiber, Alyson Noel, and Claudia Gray.
The 10th Kingdom, Newsies, Harry Potter series, Tangled, Pirates of the Caribbean, A Walk to Remember, P.S. I Love You, Casper, Ever After, Mulan, other various Disney movies, While You Were Sleeping, Pitch Black, Princess Bride, How to Train Your Dragon, and Meet Joe Black...
I have a lot of favorite shows, some that I watch with my husband and others on my own.
My favorite shows that no longer air on television: HOUSE, Futurama, Fringe (I love Joshua Jackson!) Charmed, Gilmore Girls, Dark Angel, Joan of Arcadia, Lost, Numb3rs, Sliders, Firefly, Psych, How I Met Your Mother, and Jackie Chan Adventures.
My current favorite shows: Big Bang Theory, Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I like Veggie Tales too, but I'm not sure if they have current episodes or if they are all reruns. Plus I don't think they are on television. Aren't they just on DVD?
My favorite anime: Inuyasha, Ouran High School Host Club, Karin, Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon, Kodocha, Trigun, Love Hina, Death Note, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and My Bride is a Mermaid. I'm sure I'll add to this list as I watch more anime.
I'm new to making crafts. I'd love to have some favorites, but for now I'll just say what I'd like to learn to do. I want to learn how to knit and crochet things like scarves, hats, booties, and blankets. I want to learn how to quilt, but first I need to learn how to sew. Ideally, I'd like to learn how to sew clothing. I have done some paper crafts, but I want to learn different kinds. I'd also like to do scrapbooking.
Even though I love the written word, I also like numbers. I take care of the budget at home. I also like to find great deals and coupons. I love to save money so that my family can have extra to travel and do other things we enjoy.
If I haven't rated you, just send me a message and I'll definitely get back to you.
