I'm a college student in Ventura Country. Yeah, it's SoCal, but it's not that great. I grew up in Connecticut, and I miss the east coast more every time the seasons don't change. The weather here is great, if you're of the majority who enjoy 72° weather all year 'round. Personally, I find that kind of boring. Not surprisingly, my favorite season is autumn. I have an affinity for fallen leaves. I also love the snow... if I'm indoors. Sitting curled up with a book next to a crackling fire, with a Christmas tree casting the shadows of dancing rainbows across the room, is only perfect when there's snow falling, and the world outside is so hushed that you can believe you've been whisked by the snowstorm to your own private little world. I'm an enormous bookworm. When I was a kid, I used to get in trouble for reading too much. As a history major, my taste in reading naturally tends toward historical fiction -- two of my favorite books are Pope Joan and The Mists of Avalon. My favorite writer is Orson Scott Card. He's a master when it comes to character depth and development. His series Ender's Game and Alvin Maker are works of true genius, and have been re-read by me at least ten times each. My tastes in music aren't particularly interesting; by anyone's account after flipping through my iPod, I should be a 40-year-old woman. Josh Groban is a musical hero to me. My favorite bands are Maroon 5 and the Goo Goo Dolls. I also enjoy healthy doses of Billy Joel, Elton John, and Michelle Branch (and I'll admit to being a thorough fan of Disney's work). I despise punk and death metal. When I was a kid, I told people that I wanted to be an Egyptologist (I've always been fascinated by the history of ancient Egypt -- especially the mummies). Now I'm rethinking that career choice, and have directed myself towards a BA in history with perhaps a concentration in ancient Egypt. I'd prefer to be a forensic anthropologist, but I just don't have enough interest in biology and chemistry to be able to do the job justice. Antique fairs send me into intellectual ecstasy, though, which is what makes me feel that history is the right field for me. I love unicorns, too, though at my age, I'm a bit embarrassed about that. Still, the lore and beauty of unicorns have enchanted me my entire life, and my attraction to them has not yet faded.
