I’m a yin yang type of person. I’m a hairdresser that has a business degree in managerial economics that is going back to school to be a geologist. I love to organize and paint. I am equal parts right and left brained. I’m a girly tomboy. I am practical, but at the same time I want silliness and escapism. My likes and dislikes are such a huge range. I just like what I like and don’t want to fit into a box—but I do like boxes, purses, containers, or anything that you can use to organize—just don’t organize me.
I love to read. I will read when I have 5 minutes while meat is defrosting in the microwave (which I know is not the best, but hey I should get credit for actually making dinner—right?). I love all types of genres—from sci-fi to historical fiction. It just has to be good. Sometimes I really want to think when I read. I want the author to make me work for it. Other times I just want to escape and read what I call fluff. I like fluff. To me Twilight is fluff. And I love Twilight. You don’t have to think to read it. Just enjoy it for what it is.
I am a harsh critic though. If you can’t get me interested in about 5 pages I will stop reading. There is so much out there to read I don’t need to waste my time if you don’t grab me right away. On that note, if someone recommends something I will give it more of a chance (they might say “just get through the first chapter etc.”) I won’t critique anything I don’t finish though, and I will critique each book for what it is. That is a huge pet peeve when critics try to compare a book like Pride and Prejudice to Twilight. Hello? Two totally different genres, time period, everything.
So, am I a redhead though? Sometimes. I am a hairdresser who loves color!! 😉
