About Me.

Let's get the obvious out of the way. I'm a girl who loves performing. I love being on stage. I'm a junior in the Musical Theatre program at Weber State University. I started with the musical theatre thing in high school. Before falling in love with musical theatre though, I did classical ballet for ten years. In other words... I've been performing for a long time. Even though I abandoned the pointe shoes and leotards almost three years ago, ballet will always have a place close to my heart. So whether it be through dancing, singing, or acting... I love connecting with people by means of telling a story and creating art on stage. I love to entertain. There are few things I find more liberating than allowing an audience to escape their hum-drum world for a couple of hours. It's a lot of work, but it's what I do and I love it.
I'm the oldest of three children. I admire my younger brother and sister so much. I love my family. I am convinced that I have the best family in the entire world. They are supportive in everything I do. They're weird, they know how to make me laugh, and they are ultimately my heroes. My family is the one constant in my crazy life... and I don't know what I would do without them. I am blessed with some incredible friends too. Brittany Hathaway and Elise Vander Does are my best girlfriends, but I'm surrounded by a whole bunch of pretty wonderful humans that I'm proud to call my friends. I love meeting new people and I'm always looking to expand my circle of friends!
I'm usually seen wearing bright, happy colors. My favorite color is yellow. I love lipstick. I'm left-handed, which usually ends up being a bother more than anything else. I have blue eyes. I hate my big feet. I have the chronic hiccups. Yep... I hiccup at least once every day, without fail. I have lots of freckles, especially in the summer. Speaking of which... I love summertime. I love the long days, warm evenings, summer readings, starry skies, camping trips, snow-cones, summer romances, swim parties, and flip flops.
I love taking pictures, especially on my dad's fancy camera. I love music. I love to travel. Experiencing new cultures and learning about history fascinates me, especially when I get to see it for myself. I'm not a huge television-watcher, but I have a few shows I watch faithfully. I love a good book. I have to be careful with my reading habits though, because sometimes I put off other things so I can read. I'm a spelling nerd. I appreciate writing that is grammatically correct. You'll find typos on here, I'm sure... but I highly dislike when people misspell obvious words. I even text people using all of my capitals and punctuation marks, when I can. I love taking naps (probably too much.) My favorite movie is P.S. I Love You. I also quite like 500 Days of Summer and Tangled... but I'll sit down and watch almost anything, especially if I have someone to watch it with.
If you really want to be my friend, my favorite food is ice cream. Please take note. I will eat the stuff in the summer, in the freezing cold, by myself, or with friends. I couldn't even choose a favorite flavor if you asked me to. I also drink a lot of hot chocolate. Oh yeah... and I could probably eat a whole can of black olives by myself in one sitting. My favorite candy bar is Hershey's Cookies and Cream. I also love dark chocolate, Red Robin's strawberry lemonade, Olive Garden, and Einstein's Bagels. I'm a really picky eater, and sometimes I still eat like a little kid. I love grilled-cheese sandwiches, chocolate milk, Lunchables, Campbell's chicken noodle soup, and macaroni and cheese... this works out well, seeing as I'm not a very good cook. It's something I'm currently working on.
Sometimes I'm a bit of a perfectionist. If I'm not good at something, I get frustrated easily. I do not like to purposely embarrass or make a fool of myself.... I do it enough unintentionally. I like to be organized. I'm not a clean-freak, but I definitely am happier when things are in order. I also like to be busy. Sometimes I get stressed and run-down, but I enjoy being involved in a variety of things. In fact, there's never enough time for me to do everything I would love to do.
I really like to talk. Sometimes I'm long-winded (if you couldn't already tell). It's important to me to be able to sit down with someone and have an intellectual conversation. I love listening to people. If there's a problem, I would much rather talk through it than leave things unsaid. I've always been opinionated. I've always been very expressive, even when I was little. I'm ruled more by feeling than by logic. I'm over-analytical. A deep-thinker. Sometimes this gets the best of me. I love quotes, I have an entire notebook full of them. I'm a hopeless romantic. If we're friends you've probably heard my say, "I love love" on more than one occasion. I love a good classic romance, a traditional love story. I fall in love easily. I'm a sap. There's nothing more to it.
If you want to get to know me better, my blog is a good place to start. I love writing about random happenings in my life, and I like when other people enjoy my writing. So please... feel free to come back, and feel free to comment. I want so much to just live life to the fullest… to soak in every moment. I love the small and simple things that people often overlook in the world. I have strong beliefs, ambitions, and dreams… just lovin’ life. :)
