When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be Janeane Garofalo or Lisa Loeb. For a short time in my twenties, I was Natalie Imbruglia.
I hate magic and birds.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, painting screenshots of The Simpsons, maintaining my writing blog, restoring furniture, catching up on important films/tv of the past, playing with my animals, photographing famous graves, creating my own greeting cards, and constructing terrarium hell-scapes of my lucid dreams.
