Blogstalking - Who Am I?

What is a girl to do when she’d like to post more often but doesn’t have anything to post about? Join blogstalking of course! This weeks topic is all about me. I don’t think I’ve given much personal information on here so this might be fun.



My name is Lauren. I’m a student at Eastern Kentucky University where I’ve been working towards my bachelors degree for way too long now. I’m an ex-computer science student and current general studies major. I’m scheduled to graduate this summer and then I hope to go into grad school for occupational therapy.

I’m a liberal which leaves me at odds with Kentucky’s conservative majority. [insert political and social unrest here]

I’m shy, quiet until I’m comfortable, and a bit weird. I’m a geek. I enjoy table top gaming such as D&D. I enjoy cooking and baking, but dislike the dishes that are left afterwards.



I procrastinate and am doing so as I write this. I knit, play the violin, and pack bento lunches. I’m a bit overweight but working on correcting the issue. I enjoy hiking and being outside. I would like to some day get more into sewing and embroidery and maybe try out belly dancing and pilates. I love blank books, and boxes. My childhood stuffed animal was a bunny.



TV:
Lately I’ve been cycling through episodes of Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Charmed, Smallville, Hero’s, and Scrubs.

Book Series:
I have a bit of a soft spot for novels about vampires and the like where the main character is a smart ass female. I’m a fan of Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series and Kelly Armstrong’s Women of the Underworld series. In more of the fantasy genre I’ve been enjoying Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel's Legacy series. Oh and I’m a Harry Potter fan for sure.

Two of my favorite books ever were Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson, and Canone Inverso by Paolo Maurensig. I actually bought Canone Inverso because of the cover. The original cover had a nice picture of a violin on it.

HI Lauren! Nice to meet you! ;) Nice violin there too!

Holly said...

Glad to know more about your, Lauren. Don't worry - you'll make it through school eventually! Love the picture of the bunny, and I'll look forward to reading more of your posts.

What a fabulous post. I love your pictures.

I know a great Pilates DVD, if that would interest you! I felt better knowing how to do things a little bit before I took my classes.

I learned lots of things about you in this post! :) That's so cool that you're a violinist! I've been going through Scrubs reruns myself. :) Exciting about going into Occupational Therapy! I'm shy @ first too--til I get comfortable!

I think that we must have a very similar taste in books - I just finished "Kushiel's Justice" (meh, not the best book of the 5), and "Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit" was one of my favourite books for years.

Hee! I loved the bunny too!

Disco said...

You still have your childhood toy? Wow! He is so cute too. And doesn't look beat up at all. :-)

jesh said...

The violin is gorgeous but the bunny made me go AAWW! I love bunnies. especially overloved childhood bunnies.

purple_niko said...

one of my childhood toys was a bunny too - one that was tall, and had a musical box by his butt. It was handy for beating up my siblings with! haha
I'm slowly discovering that there are more and more geeks in this world, and am really liking that!

The real question is, do you watch Dr. Who? Because if not, you must, really! That's a great picture of you.

Nice to meet you!

Don't feel bad about how long it's taking you to get your degree. I was on the six-year plan myself.

Bunny!

my childhood stuffed animal was a bunny, too. i've still got him, tho he's a bit scary looking now with all his fur loved off. we looked thru old photos a couple of years ago, and there was a picture of him brand new in my easter basket. i ought to find that pic and have it put in a shadow box with him. another project for my spare time!

Love the shows! I spent the whole summer watching the entirety of Charmed. Dh and I are big fans of Smallville, Heros and DS9 too!
