I'm a book nerd and lover of words. I'm a full-time grad student (can you say 'overwhelmed'?). I read a lot, love music (live and recorded), and love to take pictures with my digital camera -- nothing of artistic merit, really, just snapshots for memory's sake. Check out my Photobucket if you'd like.

Friend me if you'd like; I'm always up for meeting new people.

"But I also have to acknowledge that what truly excites me, what I get off on, is learning and understanding new things. I can't help it. When that bulb snaps on and I can see something in a new way, it's exhilirating. And when someone is excited to share this perspective with me, and they've brought me into a new fascinating world and I can add my own ideas, and there's an excited, frenzied exchange of information, that is wonderful." ~ Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner
