I have hobbies like ice skating, piano playing, swimming (casually...), slight volleyball and tennis playing, singing in the shower, an iota of guitar playing, and drawing. I'm sentimental and stubborn. I love finding the deeper & hidden messages. I'm addicted to Starbucks. I read stories again and again. I don't hate rainy days. Snow is amazing. I like shapes in clouds and silver linings. Dogs take up a sizable (who am I kidding...?) amount of space in my heart. I get lost in other worlds and forget about reality more often than not. Broadway love. I have a habit of sending mixed signals. But what's wrong with a little mystery? I can also be sarcastic―a lot. I like the words serendipity and bittersweet and quirky. I like finding the meanings of names. Chocolate. Doughnuts. Pie. Occasionally I can be quite depressing. Sometimes I am a hyper joy-spreading stranger. I find myself hanging on to the sinking ships I fall in love with. A city girl at heart that believes in bright lights and "This is where dreams come true." But that doesn't mean I forget about nature. Did I mention I love snow? I like autumn and winter weather better than summer and spring. There isn't one day that music isn't part of my life. And I think photography and traveling are permanently awesome. xo

Another obsession of mine: inspirational quotes.
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
"I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it."
"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes coal, deep-burning and unquenchable."
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."
"I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read."
―George R. R. Martin
The one and only Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower:
"We accept the love we think we deserve."
"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."
"There's nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons."
"She wasn't bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time. "
All this time

To the Earth,
"You owe me."
With a love like that.

And the following are all by John Green (like, damn, this guy rocks), from his inimitable novel: The Fault in Our Stars.

"The world is not a wish-granting factory."
"I'm on the roller coaster that only goes up, my friend."
"I believe the universe wants to be noticed."
"You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."
"You say you're not special because the world doesn't know about you, but that's an insult to me. I know you."
"What a slut time is. She screws everybody."
"All efforts to save me from you will fail."
"The marks humans leave are too often scars.
"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities."
"I'll fight it. I'll fight it for you...I'll find a way to hang around and annoy you for a while."
"That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt."
"As the tide washed in, the Dutch Tulip Man faced the ocean:
'Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it, rising up and down, taking everything with it.'
'What's that?' I asked.
'Water,' the Dutchman said. 'Well, and time.'"
