Things I Like:

I’m a nerd so… I love all things Star Wars, Final Fantasy, Zelda, and--of course--Harry Potter. I love to read manga and watch anime--I recently introduced my daughters to Sailor Moon (the anime) and they love it!!! In my (tiny bit of) spare time, I play Final Fantasy VIII (and will play IX next--again, as it is my favorite) and I read books! This summer, I read over twenty books! My daughters and I are currently reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (the Illustrated Edition).

Favorite Music Artists:

  1. Linkin Park (RIP Chester)
  2. Dragonforce
  3. Journey (I saw them in concert!)
  4. Michael Jackson (RIP)

Places I’ve Been:

I have been to 30+ states (including Hawaii, which was amazing!). I have been to Puerto Rico also!

Places I’d like to Go:

  1. Taiwan
  2. Japan
  3. Ireland (when it’s warm!)
  4. Spain

Thanks for reading this far!
