Hello! I am 29 from Dallas, TX. I am not married, no kids and I like it that way; just me and my cat Salem. >^.^< I work full-time and am in college finishing up my BA in Sociology and Women's Studies. My dream is to work for a NPO helping impoverished families and/or women recovering from domestic violence.
I walk every year in the Texas Freedom Parade; equality across all races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexes, chosen genders, sexualities, religions, abilities and disabilities is extremely important to me. Life is short and I have no patience for hate.
I'm a total geeknerd; I cosplay various chracters at local cons and am part of a Doctor Who cosplay group. Nerdynerdnerd.
I have loved music since I learned to read music and started singing competitively at 8 years old. I play acoustic guitar when I find time. I can find something I like in every genre of music, including international music in languages I don't understand! Discovering new music is a love of mine. Good music is truly timeless and can touch people the world over. I love everything from metal to electronic, pop, dance, Latin and oldies.
Some of my favorite bands/musical artists include: Coheed and Cambria, The Beatles, Regina Spektor, Ben Folds (Five), Gogol Bordello, Rilo Kiley, Cake, Queen, Macklemore, Hendrick, The Hush Sound, The Rocket Summer, Old 97's, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Rufus Wainwright, Morrissey, Elliott Smith...and far more.
I hate music snobs. A lot. If you name drop obscure bands to look cool, you're weak. If you hate on other people's musical tastes, you're a loser. Get over yourself.
I have a broad taste in movies, but I mostly enjoy raunchy comedies, musicals and independent films. I DO NOT WATCH HORROR/GORE. Some of my favorites movies are The Royal Tenenbaums, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Amelie, Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Pretty in Pink, Baseketball, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Batman, The Avengers, She's Out of Your League, 10 Things I Hate About You, Talladega Nights, I Love You Man, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek.
I started digital scrapbooking in 2011, but I have been a craft lover my entire life. I am the lead of quality assurance for a top digital scrapbooking website. I have always been a creative person and my latest foray is card making. I am getting into stamping and building my collection. I really hope to find some awesome card swaps on here so I can get better and share the love with others. I also enjoy DIY crafts and upcycling. :)
I don't watch a whole lot of television, but I do love Netflix and when I find a show I like, I become obsessed! Here are some of my all-time favs and new obsessions: I Love Lucy, Breaking Bad, The Office (US and UK), Weeds, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, The Riches, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Doctor Who.
Tea, purple, coral, mint green, vintage, raunchy humor, Batman, Loki, The Avengers, volunteering, Mexican food, Paleo food, geekery, Shakespeare, 50s fashion, pin-up girls, crooners, oldies, WGWGs, washi tape, Havaianas, Marilyn Monroe, Funko Pop!s, Washington DC and magnets from places I've never been!
Glitter, scene kids, Superman, vampires (especially sparkly ones), celery, pork, Family Guy, phone calls, junk mail, summer, hypocrisy, dust, greed, Japanese cherry blossom-scented things, beer, bugs (including ladybugs and butterflies--THEY'RE STILL BUGS), high heels, haters, Chicago IL, people who twist my words and liars (not to be confused with lairs, which are awesome).
I love Tom Hiddleston. A LOT. Like a really lot. Like probably way too much. I sit around and Google him when I'm bored. I get actually jealous when people repin from my Pinterest board-full of images of him. I'd stalk him if I had the time.
And Scarlett Johannson. Mmm.
I follow the Paleo lifestyle, so please do not send me anything with dairy, grain, legumes, peanuts or sugar in it. I do NOT consume HFCS, any artificial sweeteners, fillers or flavors, nor any artificial "foods" including soy and vegetable oils. Unless you're a fellow caveman, it's really best to steer clear of sending me any foodstuffs. :)
I have sensitive skin; I can't do anything from B&BW and I prefer to use natural products scented with essential oils in the bath. If you make your own perfume oil or bath products using natural ingredients, they are just fine!
I prefer not to receive faith-based/Bible quote items; cards are ok as I can give them to my mother, but anything else won't be used. However, inspirational quotes are welcome as I post them all over my home.
I don't like overtly scary/creepy things. I have seen enough terrible things in real life, I don't need anything else to scar me further. No horror, no zombies, no gore, no ritualistic violence, etc. In line with this, I am adamantly against private ownership/use of guns and do not like gun images in any form. Please respect this.
