I'm a walking contradiction, though I know Ayn Rand would tell me to check my premises. I play semi-pro soccer and am currently finishing up my undergraduate work student-teaching in a Buffalo inner city school. I went to a tiny high school in a town where lawn mower racing is a treasured past time and I played the trumpet for seven years in marching band and participated in all the school plays while active as a three sport varsity athlete. So basically, I was Troy Bolton (that's right, I made a High School Musical reference. Deal with it) I love to read, especially Harry Potter, and write and paint and drink coffee... or caramel mocha frappaccinos (wondering if that's spelled right), which I absolutely will count pennies for. My favorite bands are the Beatles, My Chemical Romance, Green Day and OAR. And now I"m obviously totally psyched on the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, also the Gallows, Circa Survive and Taking Back Sunday... Mmkay. Peace.
