Hi All!

The form.
x. Name:Adrienne
x. Age:18
x. Gender:Femme
x. Location [State, city, and a brief description of what it is like where you live.]:Originally a southern girl (NC,LA,&TX), grew up all over the world (military brat) - mostly in Amherst, MA. Now living/at school in Hempstead, NY. What can I say about Hempstead...? It's on Long Island, just a short drive from the Hamptons - yes, I'm surrounded by rich, spoiled, brats. I live on campus (Hofstra University)'s a pretty campus surrounded by a sketchy town...that's about it.

x. Education level:Currently a college Freshman
x. Sports / Extra curricular activities:Entertainment Unlimited (special events club at my school), Cunjunto de Bomba alumni(Afro-Puerto Rican dance troop)
x. Two Favorite books.
1.The Silmarillion/Dante's Inferno/Paradise Lost - it's a tie
2.A Game of Thrones
x. Two Favorite movies.
2.Higher Learning
x. Two Favorite places.
1.San Antonio, TX (I was born there)
2.Bickendorf, Germany (My dad lives there)
x. Two Issues you feel strongly about and why.
1.The "War on Terrorism" - Fuck it! We've lost too many lives(on all sides) because of Bush's goddamn ego! (I have many problems w/ our government in general)
2.How it's "in" to be a person of color right now. Race is not and should never be treated as a fad! (I also have no tolerance for ignorance)
x. Two Important people in your life and why.
1.My little brother and sister (they're only a year apart - they count as one person). They are my partners in crime; without them life would be pointless and boring.
2.My mum. She's always supported me in everything I've done - even the stupid stuff.

x. Views on religion?:I was raised Lutheran & Jewish, now I consider myself to be a Wiccan Jew...I'm open to anything. I just hate it when people use faith as a weapon or an excuse.
x. Views on cliques?:Stupid
x. Views on same sex marriage?:Love is love...leave it at that.
x. Views on abortion?:Pro Choice, a woman's body is her own.
x. Views on sex without love?:Do what you want as long as your not hurting yourself or anyone else...unless your into that kind of thing.
x. Views on drugs/drinking/smoking?:Personally I won't touch the stuff...but I'm not gonna sit there and lecture on the consequences of using any what you do.
x. Views on death?:It sucks to loose someone...but it's all part of the cycle. (I'm talking about natural death...not unnecessary death...war,etc.)

x. Can you tell us what makes you cool or why you're different then everybody else? [100-200 words, please]. :~The Facts~
I live in a small college town that doubles as the pot Mecca of the East Coast(Amherst).
One of my little sisters is an Anarchist, one is the devil incarnate, and the other drools a lot.
My little brother is and always will be my partner in crime.
I am a self proclaimed dork.
Tolkien is my god.
My favorite foods are Tamales and Matzos Ball Soup (not together - I'm not that weird!).
I think I was a gerbil in my past life...or maybe a wolverine.
I suck at guitar - but I still try.
I am a military brat.
Since the age of 8, I've had a creepy obsession with Val Kilmer & Ray Liotta (I blame my mum).
I understand random phrases in Norwegian.
I am a mestizo Italian Jew from Texas (I know...wierd).

x. Tell us who you are. [100-200 words, please]. :

“Dead as dead can be,” my doctor tells me
But I just can’t believe him, ever the optimistic one
I’m sure of your ability to become my perfect enemy
Wake up and face me, don’t play dead cause maybe
Someday I will walk away and say, “You disappoint me,”
Maybe you’re better off this way

Leaning over you here, cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection of what you could and might have been
It's your right and your ability
To become…my perfect enemy…

Wake up (we'll catch you) and face me (come one now),
Don’t play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I’ll (someday I'll) walk away and say, “You disappoint me,”
Maybe you’re better off this way

Maybe you’re better off this way
Maybe you’re better off this way
Maybe you’re better off this way
You’re better of this; you’re better off this;
Maybe you’re better off!

Wake up (can't you) and face me (come on now),
Don’t play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I’ll (someday I'll) walk away and say, “You fucking disappoint me!”
Maybe you’re better off this way

Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear this
Go ahead and play dead
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
You fucking disappoint me!

Passive aggressive bullshit

4.I will do anything to cheer someone up...even if it requires me making an ass of myself.
x. Four Worst Qualities.
2.Intolerance towards ignorance(ties in w/#1, ignorance leads to fear, which leads to hate...what can I say? I'm a hate hater.)
4.I don't always think before I speak. I can be very harsh and not mean to be.
x. Two Things you would want to change about yourself.
1.meh...nothing really, my quirks make me me.
2.see above
x. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:Grad school, part time job, broke.
x. " " Ten years?:Doing research in Israel, the British Isles, or Romania. I want to be a linguistical anthropologist, maybe a professor. Hopefully I'll have started a family by then...happily married and all that fairy tale fluff.

x. What makes you a perfect shadow?:I'll leave my mark on the world, one way or another, I will make a difference...even if I'm the only one who believes I will. People not believing in me just motivates me even more to prove them wrong. I refuse to do anything but my best in anything I persue...with that said...I know I can handle anything and everything this world throws at me.
