My name is Lara, I'm a 22 year old college grad living in south Texas. I've lived in the same general area all my life, but can't say I love it... I hate the heat! I studied anthropology (focus in archaeology) and world religions (I am atheist myself, but I wholeheartedly believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs). I live with one of my best friends, Roxie, and our dogs Daisy (hers) and Duke (mine). And no, we didn't mean for them to be "Daisy Dukes" together! I groan when I think of it, haha.
I work part time at the city library, and it's almost the perfect job for me. I read all the time, mostly nonfiction, but right now I'm seeing what this new "Divergent" series is all about, and am testing the waters of manga (Claymore and Dragon Ball Z). It's silly, but I like it alright. I'm pretty much obsessed with the A Song of Ice and Fire series (A Game of Thrones on HBO), and am pretty into fantasy stuff (not sci-fi!). I played Skyrim for about a year straight before I finally allowed myself to finish it, and am currently playing Dragon's Dogma, which I'm pretty pleased with so far. I often like to pretend I'm a professional interior designer and photographer.
I also have to mention that I love traveling. My parents started it-- we used to go camping in Wyoming, skiing in Colorado, and hiking in Big Bend all within the span of two years, from when I was about 4 until I was 16. I've been to Europe twice, once with my high school, and the second time with three friends on a three-week, eight-city trip that I planned entirely myself. I went to Belize once, for archaeology field school my junior year of college. We dug up skeletons from a graveyard on a tiny island for a month and it was probably the coolest experience I've ever had.
I've been on LJ for about 6 years now (whoa, time flies) and post generally 2 or 3 times a week or so, just about general stuff that's going on in my life, sometimes with pictures. I always read every entry every friend makes, though I only comment every once in a while. But I promise, I am reading!
Make my feed full of life again? :)
