About Me

a girl, a girl with a pen and a piece of paper. I am a photographer, an artist (specifically a painter), a writer, and an eternal student at heart. My interests are music. art. driving without a destination. the city life. intellectuals. messy hair. tea and herb. traveling. chinese food in bed. sunsets. star-gazing on warm nights. real love. meeting interesting people. photography. movie nights. psychology. guitar. philosophy. the beat generation. spirituality. I never want to forget a single thing, experience, moment, or feeling, and because of this, I am constantly documenting (whether in film, paint, lead, or journals).

Favorite Music

I LOVE music!...and I probably listen to more techno than a gay bar (but normal is just so boring, huh?)...so, here starts the list at Jefferson Airplane. Bob Dylan. Ben Harper. Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show. Simon & Garfunkel. The Mamas and the Papas. The Youngbloods. Wolfmother. The Byrds. Donovan. Janis Joplin. Franz Ferdinand. Sly & the Family Stone. Steppenwolf. The Troggs. Strawberry Alarm Clock. Regina Spektor. Weezer. Bush. Queens of the Stone Age. Anita Ward. Pearl Jam. The Beatles. Bill Withers. Queen. Blink 182. Bon Jovi. Kansas. Tenacious D. Bruce Springsteen. Captain & Tenille. The Cars. Coldplay. Mika. Collective Soul. Pink Floyd David Bowie. Def Leppard. Demitri Martin (not really music ~ but funny as hell!). The Doobie Brothers. The Doors. Falco. The Fray. Gavin DeGraw. The Fugees. The Fire Theft (especially #09...Larry). Jimi Hendrix. John Mayer. KC and the Sunshine Band. The Killers. The Knack. The Lemon Pipers. The Kinks. Low Millions. Melissa Etheridge. The Monkees. Poison. Nirvana. The Prodigy. The Posies. Puddle of Mud. Sarah McLachlan. Seal. Six Pence None the Richer. Elton John. Simple Minds. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Tonic. DHT. War. Buckcherry. Yes. The Who. and I think I'll stop the list at...last, but most definitely not least...U2.

Favorite Books

Oh, where to begin with my love affair with literature? Howl (and really anything written by ginsberg), on the road, ping, the electric kool-aid acid tests, Salinger, girl interrupted, rucksack revolution, one flew over the cuckoo's nest, the bell jar, an unquiet mind, the skeptic's dictionary, the slaughterhouse five, night, babylon, the third wave, goodnight moon, ken kesey's spit in the ocean and other journals, the dharma bums, blood of the wig, the satan seller, the iliad and odyssey, edgar allen poe, hawthorne, mark twain (except for the prince and the pauper - lame.), to kill a mockingbird, of mice and men (depressing), shakespeare's comedies, anything dr. seuss, metaphysics by david hamlyn, death of a salesman, 12 angry jurors, meditations by rene descartes, the theory of consciousness, the andy warhol diaries, Confessions of a Synthetic Starfucker- the Unexpurgated Memoirs of a Celebrity Hairpiece, and all, yes ALL, of the Harry Potter books!

Favorite Movies

Favorite Television

Television will rot the mind. That being said, I LOVE Bob's Burgers, the X-Files, the Mighty Boosh, Rick & Morty, Black Mirror, Grace & Frankie, and Pushing Daisies. I also like the office, the big bang theory, arrested development, better off ted, black books, reno 911, seinfeld, friends, saturday night live, the soup, and sex and the city (my guilty pleasure)...also, I've realized lately that I watch more anime than is healthy for an average person, and HERE are some of my current favorites: cowboy bebop, ghost in the shell, bleach, samurai champloo, rurouni kenshin, and gantz.

Favorite Crafts

I am a painter, but enjoy working with oil pastels, graphite, charcoals, and almost any other medium! I've also gotten into collecting pretty fabrics, sewing little softies with them (uber cute!), drawing, doing penpal letters (and artful extras), I'm interested in origami (and good at it if the directions are simple enough), I'm big on ATCs and inchies, I can knit scarves and nothing else)...basically, give me art or give me death! If you're curious about my artwork, I would encourage you to check out my deviantart account (I could always use feedback on there!)

Swaps I've Been Flaked On

I understand that sometimes life gets in the way of what should be ideal situations, and I HATE giving poor ratings....so, if anyone fulfills their swap duties (even late), I will gladly rate you then! :) And of course, anyone who is willing to angel these swaps would be greatly appreciated!

My Favorite Swappers

This section is dedicated to all of the swappers who have truly gone above and beyond (either with a swap, or who angeled a swap that I didn't get sent)...this is the special people section:

  • Maryn Gier (MonkeysInk) gave me the BEST one-day swap package (and the best suprise I've received thus far) thanks Maryn :)
  • Linda Russell (madtatter7) gave me the coolest pink & black ATC...but also added an awesome techno CD, just because! thanks Linda :)
  • Mona Broomfield (sunshinesuperman) sent me a wonderful sunflower ATC, but a whole lot of additional goodies! It really made my day! thanks Mona! :)
  • Wendy Walser (Uribouwawa) sent me a super cute (and new technique idea) ATC for the bug/ insect ATC swap...but added beautiful stationary and amazing Japanese stickers! thanks Wendy :)
  • Kathleen Garces (imaventriloquist) gave me a wonderful booklet (that she obviously worked hard on) for the list, letter, and little suprise swap...and she added a ton of fun bonuses! thanks Kathleen :)
  • Lisette sent me the most beautiful wonderfully cute inchies EVER! thanks Lisette :)
  • Jan Gilson (1940Grannie) went way above and beyond on a simple owl swap, to include a bunch of my japanese favorites...thanks Jan :)
  • Kajsab angeled (YEARS LATER, might I add) 3 x 3 ATCs that I was flaked on thanks kajsab!
