I: feel a deep connection with past eras--movies, figures, music, etc.. + believe in Karma. + have an odd sense of humor. + lead a complicated life but realize that other people probably have a more difficult time dealing with that than I do.

I am all about Friedrich Nietzsche, Bettie Page, Sylvia Plath, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Alfred Hitchcock, the jaded, the cynical and the rejected.
My degree in English Literature contributes greatly to my love of words. I like metaphors, literary references in popular culture and music, elevated language, raw emotions and filthy honesty.
I am a general assignments reporter at a local newspaper. I like feeling like I'm giving something back to the community who raised me from birth.
I had a well extended minor in Sociology in college, and I do tend to analyze the shit out of people. I am interested in knowing how and why people interact the ways that they do, gender studies and have an overall value of justice. I'm also a Libra — how perfect is that?
I’m spiritual, I’m analytical, but I don’t consider myself religious. I believe in finding one’s own path. To me, the word 'religious' implies that I follow a mapped-out doctrine. The word 'spirituality' affords me the opportunity to find out what it is I truly believe and a deep connection with my spiritual self. It is not confined.

The persona:

Alice is a combination of:
"Alice in her party dress
She thanks you kindly
So serene
She needs you like she needs her tranqs
To tell her that the world is clean"
~ The Sisters of Mercy, "Alice."

If I relate to any literary character the most, Lady Lazarus is definitely that character.
