My name is Laila. I'm 21 years old. I'm in my senior year of college in Baltimore, MD with a major in writing and a minor in theatre. Cliche to say, but music is my life. I plan to become a music journalist. I currently write for 3 music publications and just finished up an internship with Alternative Press Magazine. I spend a lot of my time going to concerts and interviewing bands. Some of my favorite bands are Otep, The Rasmus, New Years Day, Straylight Run, Eisley, Nine Inch Nails, The Doors, Flee the Seen, Schoolyard Heroes, Misfits, Paramore, Orgy, Tegan and Sara, Now, Now Every Children, Julien-K, Garbage, Jack Off Jill, Scarling, Charlotte Sometimes, A Kiss Could Be Deadly and Electric Valentine.
But enough about music =)
I lived overseas most of my life, in Istanbul and Dubai. I loved it a lot and I miss it a lot; I like to think that the experience made me a more open-minded person. My parents currently live in Ohio, where I spent my senior year of high school and go back for breaks.
I'm a lesbian, and it took me a LONNGGGG time to give myself that label lol.
I like reading, writing, music (if you haven't figured that out yet =p), watching netflix selections and having coffee or dinner with friends. Posters cover my walls and I like funky clothing and band merchandise.
I'll admit that I've been a bad commenter and updater in the past, but I hope that this will change that =). I'm trying to get over a lot of self esteem issues and love life more, because it's really not as dramatic as I make it =p.
And just for the hell of it, picture under the cut.
