[email protected] Music and books make most of her life. Loves to learn about cultures around the world. Fascinated by the hippie culture, and the only regret in life is not being born in the 50s so that she could be a teenager in the 60s and enjoy the hippie culture (read The Beatles) at its peak. Extremely drawn to new and innovative ideas. Not too talkative, prefers been quiet and speaks only when needed, mindless chatter is not appreciated. That's pretty much it.
