What are some of your favorite books, movies and TV shows?

Movies: Resident Evil, Signs and the majority of Pixar and Disney movies such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo (total kid at heart).
TV Shows: First off, I do not really watch much TV but when I do I enjoy The Vampire Diaries (Ian=Dream), Falling Skies and Bob’s Burgers (a little sad this was cancelled, I cannot stand Family Guy but Bob’s Burgers was sort of cute and not perverted). My old favorites are Laguna Beach and The Hills, yes I was an LC junkie back in the day.

Where do you live?
In a suburb West of Chicago, close enough to visit Chicago whenever I please, but not close enough to say I actually live in Chicago. It’s a good medium.

What do you do?
I’m currently an administrative assistant. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Graphic Design and hope to one day find a job where I can use my art skills and hopefully my makeup skills!

Last but not least..

Why are you a vegetarian?
Well for starters, I have only been a permanent vegetarian since October 2010. I have gone back and forth for as long as I can remember and have never really enjoyed eating meat, even as a child. It just “grossed” me out at a young age. In October I decided to finally give it up, for good. I have felt so much better both physically and mentally since my transition. In fact I was not sick at all this past Winter and that’s truly an accomplishment for me since I was the girl who got strep throat in the Summer once, who thought that was possible?! I even battled the dreaded H1N1 back in November of 2009. Now I can’t totally blame eating meat for my illnesses but I now feel that I am more conscious of what I put in my body and that makes a world of difference. Anyways, I don’t eat meat because 1) it grosses me out 2) I don’t like the taste 3) I feel it’s bad for your body and finally 4) I’m a big fan of creatures, big and small, and do not feel they should suffer for our food.
