all that i cant leave behind

oscar wilde once said, "all of us are in the gutter. but some of us are looking up at the sky." i'd like to think of myself as one of those people with the luckier view.

the skinny on me: a student (hopefully perpetually), city lover, beach dweller, quite musically obsessed. loves: U2, matt nathanson, coldplay, cold beer, good books. lord of the rings, matt damon, good conversation, london.

hates: the constant fear that life is one big cosmic joke, big conglomerations of highways, ignorance, cough syrup, cheaters, hopelessness and gimmicks (though i am ocassionally as susceptible as anyone else to all of those things).
