I've written ever since I can remember. It's one of my favorite things to do in life, and if I'm not writing you can probably find me reading, or doing something equally quiet. Although, I do like hanging out with friends a lot and watching movies and such as well. I'm quite a timid person, your typical poet, I guess. I write mostly poetry, but when I'm in the mood I attempt prose, which usually ends up being short stories. I love hardcore critique...I didn't get enough of it in high school. So if you would like to, rip the pieces apart. It won't offend me. I promise. =) Once I get started writing an email, or anything like that, I get very long winded. Forewarning.
As Josh says, I have a few addictions: J.D. Salinger, Icons, Music, Cowboy Bebop, and quotes. It's true. If I'm ever down...most of that will cheer me up.
And thanks to him, who is pretty much amazing, my love forever, and my best friend, for putting up with my crazy antics and all those long nights...oh yes, and my poet lifestyle. To him I owe so much.
My friends are the greatest people in the world. They keep me sane.
Writers I love: J.D. Salinger (a total given), Anne Sexton, Charles Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, Patricia A. Mckillip, William Carlos Williams, David Sedaris, Kurt Vonnegut, E.E. Cummings and soooo much more
Books I can't live without: The Bible, Franny and Zooey, Seymour an Introduction, various books of poetry, The Autobiography of St. Therese of Liseux, Pride and Prejudice
My top favorite band of all time has gotta be Goo Goo Dolls. Don't get me started on all the ones I love, but...Nickel Creek is up there, as well as Nirvana, Bright Eyes, The format, and tons of other random shit.
My favorite bible verse, in case anyone cares: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by,
The cigarette ash flies in your eyes, and you dont mind, you smile,
And say the world doesnt fit with you.
I dont believe you, youre so serene.
Careening through the universe, your axis on a tilt, youre guiltless and free,
I hope you take a piece of me with you"
