My name is Caitlin. There is nothing normal about me, I know, accept, and embrace this.
“What she had done with her face, actually, was what any plain girl could do. She had overlaid it with dignity, suffering, intelligence, and a piquant dash of bitchiness.” -Kurt Vonnegut

Anything by Libba Bray, John Green, Maureen Johnson, Vonnegut or Hemingway. I finally read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and I was suprised at how interesting and fun it was. I love anything post-apocalyptic and I'm getting really into memoirs. Cherie Currie's Neon Angel was amazing.
TV: Supernatural, (reluctantly, but completely obsessed with) The Vampire Diaries, NCIS (Abby Scuito is the shit), How I Met Your Mother, House, and Glee. Also Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, That 70's Show, and now since it, too, is cancelled 10 Things I Hate About You.
I like lists. I hate when "my stuff" becomes mainstream. I love Peter Pan and all that he stands for. I am obsessed with names and quotes. I used to write my own sories and make my own art but now I just admire others'. Most of my pleasures are guilty.
I want to be the type of person that doesn't have a home base, just keeps going and going until I can't go anymore. I'm about to start studying to be an Anthropologist/Archeologist. But in a dream world I would kill to be even a PA in the entertainment industry. Having even the tiniest part in making movies like the ones I love would be the most fulfilling, wonderful thing ever.
"Note to self: don't change for anyone. Don't change just lie." -Ryan Adams
The woods are lovely, dark and deep But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. -Robert Frost
