Hello and welcome, to my brand new blog. What better way to begin than by saying a little about myself. I can think think of no better way, so let’s begin!
I’m 23 years old, I’m a funeral director/embalmer but I’m also an artist deep down. I live in a historic district across the Ohio river from Cincinnati, with my brother, my dog and two cats. I have a boyfriend that I plan to marry, he is my best friend, as well. I do have one other best friend, whom I am convinced is my reincarnated twin. I spend most of my time working. When I do have free time I spend it with the people I mentioned above, they are the most important people in my life.
I’m an avid reader.. I have recently broadened my horizons as far as subject matter goes. Some of my favorites include; The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski, The Shining by Stephen King, The Hary Potter series by J.K. Rowling, Violin by Anne Rice, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and so on and so forth. Lately, reading is my favorite past time. I go through phases where I won’t read for a month, to reading several books in a month. I want to read as many books as possible and I wish I had more free time to do so!
I mentioned that I consider myself an artist. I’m not saying I posess talent worthy of fame but I do consider myself “O.K.” for an amateur. I would love to go to art school and have been considering it for some time now. Photography is my first choice, then drawing, then painting, then writing, and then music. Going to art museums is one of the most satisfying daytrips I can imagine. Although I have visited the Cincinnati Art Museum over twenty times, I would go there many more times. It is a huge facility that holds special exhibits throughout the year. This place has a very calming effect on me and inspires me to go out and make something beautiful myself!
I’m also really into film. Again, I wish I had more time, so that I could watch all the movies I wanted to. Some of my favorites are; Margot at the Wedding, Spirited Away, Amelie, Secretary, 500 Days of Summer, Pan’s Labryinth, anything by Sophia Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson. I’m also into horror movies, there’s nothing better than ordering a pizza one Friday night and watching some trashy old B-rated horror movies. Maybe I just enjoy how awful they are..
I don’t really like television. Of course there are some shows I like, but in general I hate how people go home and sit in front of a screen mindlessly for hours. Something about that truly bothers me. Some shows I do enjoy are; Six Feet Under, Nip/Tuck, Dexter, The Office, Everybody Loves Raymond and Carnivale. I refuse to count cartoons in here! They are a different breed! Cartoons are definitely intended for kids but I really love the ones that have adult jokes sneaked in there; Spongebob, Ren & Stimpy and Shrek.
Other than what I have mentioned, I love going on walks, riding my bike, eating delicious food, bowling and sleeping. 🙂 I will write more very soon.
