I'm a 23 year old girl that thinks outside of the box. I was born and raised on Long Island NY, and moved to IL when I was 18. I'm a NY princess with a NY attitude, piss me off and all you have to do is wait for it LOL!! But I would say 99. 9% of the time I'm a real sweet girl (or I've been told at least!) ummm... What the hell are my hobbies? LOL, I like to read. I love books, call me a nerd, I don't care, I love to read. I'm polishing off the collected works of Robert Frost right now... I play the violin; classical AND hip-hop music (yeah I get down like that LOL!) I really like to cook and do a pretty good job at it(so people have said) I actually want to go to cooking school and polish up my cooking skills. (Le Cordon Bleu here I come!) Foreign films are a big deal to me, other cultures are a big deal to me. I really enjoy Asian cultures and aspire to travel to India, Japan, Thailand, and China soon... I'm a girly girl so I love to shop and put on make-up and do my hair, but I'm not superficial... I'm as down to earth as they come, seriously. As for you, the fellas... Please don't even think about talking to me if you're looking for a hook-up. If I wanted to hook up with someone I would get dressed, go to freakin Wal-mart and wait for the random dude to approach me (this happens more than you could imagine.) I've done the mistress thing, and I've done the special friend thing and I'm just one of those chicks with *GASP* emotions and feelings!! And because of this I don't throw myself around... I care about me more than I care about ur penis! Sorry! But if someone is serious and wants to BE serious, watch out cause I put it down when I DO what I DO!! Also, if you're not trying to improve yourself we have nothing to talk about. I'm a college graduate with a good job, and I'm trying to get yet ANOTHER degree. Now I'm not knocking someone that didn't have the same oppurtunities as me, but if u hustle on the corner, or work at the fast food restaurant of ur choice and your ok with that... Fall back playa, we have nothing to discuss. I'm just keepin it 100 with you guys. Ok, I can't bare to sit here and type out my whole life history in this box, to know me is to love me, if you wanna find out, do a lil research!
