I'm just going to start with a list of my interests, then will probably go into some more detail below, so here we go!
Interests: reading, writing, listening to music, playing piano, watching TV, going on the computer, numbers, patterns, fantasy, daydreaming, languages, traveling, taking pictures
I was born in Arizona and moved to New England after five or six years. I don't like snow, since it generally means that it's far too cold out and even though it's nice to watch from inside where it's warm, it's horrible to go out in.
I am a sophomore in college and only just decided what I wanted to do at the beginning of this school year. So as of a few weeks ago, I am officially working toward a major in business administration with an option in accounting and a minor in justice studies. I think it's a little ridiculous that it took me so long to find what I wanted to major in and that I literally didn't have any major at all until a few weeks ago, but I started out in my university's engineering school and I finally decided after a year that I was crazy and there was no chance I would be happy doing that.
I love numbers and how they fit together, which is one of the reasons why I decided on accounting. I also like finding patterns in numbers and in other things in everyday life (sometimes I just can't help myself).
I've been playing piano on and off for as long as I can remember and I still play a lot, even if I haven't had lessons in years. I'm also fully convinced that I would not be able to function or even survive without music. The whole pattern thing comes in here again, since I can't read sheet music very well at all and the only way I can really learn to play new songs is because of the patterns involved.
I've always liked reading, but as I've gotten older, I've found that it's become almost impossible to read anything but fantasy or science fiction that has some fantasy aspect to it. I've also started getting into writing recently. I always think up little bits and pieces of different scenes, but have never been motivated enough to actually write before since there was never any real plot involved. I finally started writing after I came up with an idea for the plot of a book and now I'm working on another original fic that I've been posting while I get my thoughts together more for the book idea.
I like to travel and take pictures when I go there. I feel like there is so much in this world that you shouldn't pass up seeing if you have the opportunity to travel. So far, I've been to Ireland, Canada, Italy, Malta, Mexico, Costa Rica, and this summer, my dad and I are planning a trip to Ecuador.
Here's a list of favorites for books and things:
Favorite Book(s): The Last Herald Mage Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey
Favorite Movie(s): Lord of the Rings
Favorite TV Show: Firefly
Favorite Music: um...I've never really had one favorite group or genre, I tend to like a very wide variety of things. Some of my musical interests though are Jethro Tull, Nightwish, Natalie MacMaster, Loreena McKennitt, Super Junior (Korean), SHINee (Korean), Abingdon Boy's School (Japanese), Two Steps from Hell, Audiomachine, classical piano music (I absolutely adore Horowitz's version of Danse Macabre), to name a few...The only genres I have found that I really don't like are country and straight out rap (though a few songs I like do have a little bit, but it's fine in moderation).
There are a few things to know about my livejournal page. I post random things. My brain works in strange ways that I generally don't understand. I skip around a lot between things because that's just what my brain does, but I try and keep it to a minimum. I write about really anything I think of that's annoying me or that I start thinking about and I have started trying to post pictures that I like from trips that I've been on (though I've only really been on one since I started here, so as of right now, there are only pictures up from Costa Rica).
