My name is Shelby, I'm an eighteen year old vegan, and I reside in South West Florida.
I do some freelance photography, make up, and graphics art work (which is just a nicer way of saying I can't get a real job).
I like comic books, irony, music in all it's glorious forms, Norse mythology, alternative modeling, cult movies, body modification, meaningful conversation and history.
My hobbies include writing, reading biographies, reptile care, gardening, eating healthy and punching people/things.
Favorite music: I honestly like just about everything. Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Bright Eyes, Patti Smith, The Psychedelic Furs, Rise Against, Billy Talent, Against Me!, Radiohead, HIM, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Ladyhawke, Amon Amarth, Patsy Cline, The Cure, Lou Reed, and David Bowie come to mind.
Movies: I like the classic fantasies. Neverending Story, The Dark Crystal, The Labyrinth, etc. Also anything with Kevin Bacon, who holds a little piece of my soul all to himself. I'm also a huge Quentin Tarantino fan, and would give my ovaries to meet (and possibly marry/make love to) him.
Books: I read a lot of Francesca Lia Block, and anything similar. Really into those 'make ya think' teen angst books like Catcher in the Rye. Recently been reading a lot of Michelle Tea and Joe Meno. Currently reading Scar Tissue, by Anthony Kiedis.
My journal: My journal is likely to consist of a whole lot of shit, simply said. I do some writing, some thinking (a lot of thinking). I tend to do a lot of fun little games like '25 random facts about me,' and unlike everyone who claims this; I actually comment back. Almost all my entries include pictures because I have a tendency to document everything I do with a camera so I don't forget.
My journal is friends only but if you comment me here, or on my public post in my journal, or just down right add me without saying hello, you're likely to get added. I'm not picky. I like everything/everyone.
