All about me

OK, I guess this is where I'm supposed to tell you all about myself. I'm always bad at this. I'm 21 and live in a small city in Western New York. I'm currently going to college to learn all about theatre. I'd like to be a lighting designer or stage manager but I eventually want to direct or produce movies. That's a long way down the line.

I think this guide is the greatest thing I've seen in a long time. I absolutely love the writings of Douglas Adams and just being on the site reminds me of his books. I feel like I was meant to find this site. I read all the time. When I first read the Hitchhiker series, I was at the beginning of a time I like to call "my classics phase." In fact, I'm still in it. It's been something like three years and all I've been reading (with a few minor exceptions) are books I find in the classics section of my local bookstore. The Hitchhiker series was not in this section, but so many people had said so many good things about it that I considered this the beginning. I also purchased Animal Farm the same day. Since then it's been non-stop and I read about a book a week (except the time I read a Tolstoy. That took a lot longer, for obvious reasons). Many of these books are now near the top of my favourite reading list, and I've read a lot.

Aside from reading, I have many loves in life. First and foremost is my love for the theatre. Even a bad play is good for me. I have a critical eye and I'm usually difficult to please, but the effort that people put forward to put on a production gives me great respect for them. This love extends to film, although I am far less forgiving to an industry that has every opportunity to fix its mistakes (including, in some cases, casting) before they are viewed by the public.

I love animals. Growing up, my house was like a zoo and a veterinary clinic, not to mention a home, all in one. We've had five dogs, dozens of cats, rodents of all shapes, sizes, and colors, reptiles, birds, fish, and the occasional amphibian. I don't think there will ever be a time in my life that I won't own and love some kind of pet. I don't think I could survive through dreary days or over-happy moments without something to pet.

One thing I will always be thankful for is the over-abundance of games in the world. Board games, computer games, video games, even sports. It doesn't matter.

Any opportunity I have to take on a new life for even a brief time, I'm thankful. Not that my life is bad, but it's so nice to know I can get away in a great game, or an awesome book, or watch a movie or play and feel myself in the characters' shoes, or get on stage (however rarely) and actually be somebody else, even for a short period of time. It appears as if the whole reason for my existance is to consantly play someone else. winkeye

Not as bad as I thought it would be, but I hope I didn't bore you. I guess when I get more into the site, I'll change this to be more interesting. For now, this will have to do. I'm new, but I'll get better. smiley
