Attempt Number...?

Hello again. This is my umpteenth time attempting to keep up a somewhat interesting blog. Hopefully this time it'll stay.

It's 1:00am and I can't function, let alone write a decent first entry.

But here's a little spiel about me:

Picture:



I live in Southern California and I had the fortune of being born to two parents who fell in love with this place. No need to expound details, it suffices to say that it's a safe, beautiful place and I couldn't imagine growing up anywhere else.

I'm extremely fond of comparing situations in real life to those of the fictional world, of books, movies and occasionally television. Perhaps it is because of this that my life often seems surreal. One thing that I've learned is that there is always something unexpected lurking around the corner, sometimes pleasant and at other times horrific. I live each day looking forward to what is coming up next, yet wanting to savor each moment since it won't last forever.

I've always been slightly overweight but I've been working on shedding the pounds this summer. So far I've lost a good 10lbs. I'm hoping to lose 20. Fingers crossed!

Biking on the Strand and going to Disneyland are my personal preferences for a weekend excursion.

Writing helps me relax, reading gives me escape, and my wonderfully crazy friends do a fantastic job of unraveling any and all therapy the first two activities produced.

I have a love/hate relationship with carbs.

I love being at home in the mornings, but I tend to be out and about the rest of the day. Sitting at home during the evening does not bode well for my adventurous soul. Given any day of the summer I can usually be found out and about in Los Angeles, and if I'm forced to the confines of my dwelling you can bet that I'm scheming and creating havoc in my imagination.

Recently I've begun writing for the e-zine Verge. Check it out here!

Job hunting has become my job, and it doesn't pay well :p

My dream occupation would be part-time dancer and part-time creator--photography, stories, art--but alas my lack of training in all four areas confine me to working from scratch now that I'm in college.

Speaking of college, I am a journalism/public relations major, meaning I learn to write well and handle people and the crisis tbey land themselves in!

I'm not going to share my super personal life with the world;; it's enough to say that Rachel Greene is my twin. Let's leave it at that.

I suppose this is entirely too long for an about me entry but I do tend to ramble late at night. I think best at these late hours but productiveness is probably best achieved during the
day.

Now I really can't function. Must...sleep...

Cheerio!
