Let's fall in love

Hello. So very nice to meet you.
I'm 22. I majored in English Literature and minored in Creative Writing. I'm BIG on grammar (especially when it comes to the proper usage of parentheticals and semicolons). I start grad school in the fall for Literary Studies with an emphasis on gender and queer theory. I plan to become a college/graduate professor after obtaining my PhD in Literary Studies. I currently work as a teacher. I used to think I wanted to be a lawyer, but I couldn't imagine my life without literature. I prefer a quiet evening at home with a good book or close friends to going out. I'm a fun, witty, outgoing kind of girl. I couldn't survive without art or music. I'm pretty sarcastic, but it can be charming (or so I am told). I think before I speak (a trait that if everyone possessed, would make the world a much more pleasant place to live). I have more passion running through my veins than you could ever know.
If I were stranded on a desert island, I would bring my Macbook, my iPod, and The Great Gatsby. I'm an Apple kind of girl. I read a lot of classic literature and memoir. I'm not big on much contemporary literature. I will read anything by Steve Almond or Dave Sedaris. I listen mainly to rock (pop-punk, more than anything) and indie music. My favorites include Blink-182, New Found Glory, Bayside, Say Anything, Owl City, The Postal Service, Tegan and Sara, The Used, and (of course) The Beatles! In person, I'm pretty shy until I get to know you. Most people mistake my shyness for insincerity or disrespect. I assure you, this is not the case. I'm a pretty feminine girl by nature, but I enjoy driving fast cars and watching skate videos. I'm a walking contradiction. I rarely watch television, but I will never miss an episode of Dexter, Shameless, or House. I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan. :]
I tend to post a lot of my short stories and snippets from my (in-progress) memoir in my journal. You'll also find a fair share of rants, photos, interactive posts (where I'll be looking for feedback or information from my friends), writing prompts, drawings/sketches/doodles, video posts, and (of course) information on my day-to-day life. I like making new friends. I'm really looking for friends who post often and who will read and comment on my posts regularly. I try to comment on others' posts as often as possible, too. If you want to know, just ask. :]
