*waves profusely* Hello, fellow person! I'm ridiculously thrilled you're here.
I suppose you'll be wanting to know a bit more about me? Alrighty, then.
First and foremost, I'm a nondenominational Christian, stumbling ineptly through life with a very, very patient Guide. When I am faithless, "He remains faithful." When I am cowardly, He is valiant. When I am bitter, He is long-suffering.
I'm a story-girl, through and through. I'm a bibliophile, a musician (ish), and a movie and television nerd. The Princess Bride by William Goldman and Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott are tied for my (current) favorite book, and then there are the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Elizabeth Gaskell, Edith Wharton, Catherine Marshall, P.G. Wodehouse, and Louisa May Alcott to consider.
The two TV shows I really, really love are Leverage and BBC Robin Hood. Just . . . just hearts, hearts and butterflies and sparkles and all things perfect, forever and ever <3 Those are the two main ones, but there are many others I enjoy in more moderation.
And movies…sheesh, I don't even know where to start. This is the story category that really does stump me when I'm asked which my favorite is. (Was that sentence grammatically legitimate?) With books, TV, and music, I could tell you who/what my favorites were, after a bit of thinking. But with movies? I seriously don't know. I tend to get into and like whatever movie it is I'm watching, so there have been very few movies I've disliked. From Broken Trail to Sense and Sensibility, from Star Wars to Belle, from The Swan Princess to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, from The Philadelphia Story to Far and Away, from Mirror Mirror to The Aristocats, from August Rush to The Lord of the Rings, I just really like movies. I love old films, particularly classic Westerns with John Wayne, hilarious comedies with Cary Grant, or obscure 50s musicals with Howard Keel :) I also have a passion for underrated 90s Disney movies (The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Pocahontas for the win!).
As far as music goes, I've had both choral and solo vocal training (although I'm not taking any lessons right now), and I love singing. One of my goals is to try musical theatre performing at some point during my college career. :) I also played piano for several years and still "dabble" in it. My favorite genres to listen to are movie/musical soundtracks, folk ballads, Celtic/Gaelic, some indie, some just plain random things, and the occasional pop/rock tune.
When I'm not busy with school or one of the aforementioned modes of story consumption, I enjoy crafting and beach-combing.
That, in a nutshell, is me. :) I hope you're encouraged by my posts and that my blog brings a smile to your face!
