About Me

Hi, my name is Nichole and I'm 23 years old. I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, but now I live about 2 hours away from my childhood home, in a larger city with my boyfriend of 5 years and our very cute, but very grumpy/mean cat named Frank. I like living in the city, but sometimes I get homesick for the country.

I've always been interested in art. In fact I went to school for Graphic Design, and I did a little freelance work, but it wasn't enough to pay my bills. Now I work a full time job in retail (selling junior clothes) and even though I love clothes and I make pretty decent money, I really just want to quit and join the Peace Corps, then become a photojournalist for a travel magazine. Talk about a mixed up life, huh? Well I think your early 20's is a good time to figure stuff out. ^.^

I just joined Swap-bot in hopes that it will help me get some creative energy out. Also I can use it to cheer me up on days when I'm feeling down. I can't wait to start swapping and meeting new people!!

Favorite Things

I love all things beautiful (don't we all), but here is a list of things I absolutely love:

Yarn
Watercolors
Owls

Anything vintage from 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s

Traveling/Foreign Countries
Interested in Japanese Culture
Love the African Wilderness
Kawaii and all things cute

Things I don't like:

Favorite Books

I'm a huge fan of dark humor - my favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk, he is most famous for his book Fight Club, which was made into a movie, but I think his book Rant is brilliant. I also enjoy John Green books, my favorite is Paper Towns and Looking For Alaska. Just finished reading the Fault in our Stars. I've recently been looking up books that would actually change your life and a couple on my reading lists are:

The Great Gatsby
Slaughter House Five
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Cat's Cradle
One Hundred Years of Solitude
Invisible Monsters
White Oleander
In Cold Blood
Beloved
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
The Giver
Me Talk Pretty One Day

Other books that are not so much life changing but I still love are:

Walk Two Moons
Stargirl
The Harry Potter Series
The Hunger Games
The Boys of Summer Series
Postsecret
Bees and Mist
World of Pies

I guess you could say I enjoy reading very much, :)

Favorite Music

It seems like I can't do anything without music. I'm listening to music right now as I write this!

For my last birthday my boyfriend got me a record player and now I'm obsessed with vinyl. I know that it's like going backwards with technology, but I love it still.

Some of my favorite bands are: Modest Mouse
I Monster
The Police
Ace of Base
The Eagles
Third Eye Blind
Gorillaz
Lana Del Rey
Kate Nash
Death Cab for Cutie
The Shins
The Black Keys
The Neighborhood
Imagine Dragons
Lorde
Santigold
Lady Gaga
Kansas
The Postal Service
Vampire Weekend
Regina Spektor
Red Hot Chili Peppers
I could go on and on...

I'm also obsessed with 90's music! Like Sugar Ray, Smashmouth, Jewel, Paula Cole, Everclear, Deep Blue Something, Semisonic, and Fiona Apple to name a few.

Television and Movies

I don't watch a large amount of TV and most of the shows I like are cartoon shows ^-^

Adventure Time
Regular Show
Bob's Burgers
Archer
Sailor Moon
Breaking Bad
Sex and the City
Friends
Arrested Development
Portlandia
SNL

TO THE BOT!

Welcome to the bot! :oP

I see you have Sherman Alexie's "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" on your list of books to read. To get the most out of that book, try to get it on cd (your library may have it, he's really popular) - he does his own narrating, and he's a hoot! :oD
