One important thing to know about me is that I love to read, which is beyond an understatement. My favorites are the classics, horror/paranormal fiction, and existentialist manifestos but I'll pretty much read anything -- cereal boxes, cosmetic ingredients, the FBI disclaimer at the beginning of movies, etc. I would agree with Nietzche that "without music, life would be a mistake." It is incomprehensible to me to not have my i-pod charged and ready to go. My taste is eclectic -- very eclectic. I have a little bit of everything and I am constantly searching for new stuff. My music collection isn't quite epic but it's getting there.
I'm also a foodie (a food enthusiast/geek/student/whatever) especially anything involving molecular gastronomy. I'm such a foodie that the small amount of TV I watch is divided between The Food Network and The Cooking Channel, with Discovery and "Bones" re-runs sprinkled in for good measure. Oh, and a healthy dose of trashy reality television. I'm a big fan of horror films, even the shitty ones. Other than that, I like foreign films, documentaries, and cerebral dramas, although I can appreciate a good bro-mance. My friends consider me an authority on the Harry Potter series (mainly the books, not so much the movies -- I'm not too keen on most of them). I used to play a couple of MMOs (Eve and WoW) but don't at the moment because money is tight and my laptop can't really run them anyway. Finally, I'm immensely interested in (i.e. I have degrees in) psychology and the French language. I speak french well -- not fluent yet but I'm working on it.
My blog is mostly a smattering of individual essays I write on various topics. I'll be honest -- I'm a list-er. I'll make a list about anything. Occassionally, I'll post a recipe I've tried or invented myself but generally, a lot of what I write is just random thoughts on my life as it is now. I'm told I come off as snarky and sarcastic (even bitchy at times) but usually, my friends get a good chuckle after reading one of my rants. I'm young (23) and I suppose I've entered what they'd call a quarter-life crisis. That being said, I like to muse about what I'm going to be when I grow up. I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to novelist or international spy.
One last thing: If I could have any superpower, I'd choose psychokinesis.
