Self Overview:
Well... I'm Elizabeth and I'm a nineteen-year-old female living in the midst of the Sonoran Desert. I am a freshman in college, trying to obtain a degree in meteorology. Right now I'm currently attending the local community college, but I will eventually be transferring to a university. I hope.

I am an art nerd, I'll admit it. I enjoy writing, acting, singing, and drawing. Music is my life, I swear. All four art forms, however, give me the chance to express myself in a way conversations don't allow me to. I feel more comfortable communicating through art than verbally. I'm not an in-your-face kind of person.

Besides the above listed, I am very much interested in meteorology, astronomy, photography, other cultures and languages, and literature. I love to read. I have always been interested in meteorology. Ever since I was a young child I have wanted to be a meteorologist. If you're ignorant, meteorology is the study of weather. I have always been deeply humored by the Weather Channel and pictures of tornado and hurricane devastation. It's always so astounding to me.

Pictures of lightning are the same way with me. I love the monsoon season we get--well, lackthereof this year. Thunderstorms are so much fun to be caught in! They're so calming--and the severe ones give you such a rush if you're caught vulnerable. I love rain.

I don't know what else to say about... me.

I have many goals in my lifetime and many will also be in my "wants" categories 'cause... I'm like that. I plan on going to college. What for, I don't know. I plan on traveling a bit, learn different cultures and religions. I plan on writing a book. I don't care if it ever gets published, I just want to write a novel. Fiction, naturally. That's... about all the goals I have. There's more, but none I can say determinedly I'll accomplish.

As I said, many of my goals will be in this section. I want to go to continue going to college and be successful in this endeavor. I want to travel the world. I want to study cultures and religions. I want to learn a language other than English (no, I am not bilingual). Right now, I'm studying Latin. I want to write a book, hopefully get it published.

I want to work on Broadway--I'll be content as an extra in a production. I love to be in musicals and Broadway is the ultimate musical. I want to be a singer or an actress. Doubt I'll ever accomplish those--for many reasons--but I still want to try. I want to be a storm chaser.

I want to chase tornadoes and hurricanes and actually broadcast during a hurricane. I was obsessing over the coverage on the Weather Channel of Hurricane Katrina--I have a very dear friend who was evacuated (she lives in Mississippi, you get it). I was astonished about what they do. It looked like so much effing fun!

Anyway, I want to skydive. I want to go rock climbing. I want to do a lot of things. I don't want a lot of material possessions. At this point, I don't care if I ever find love. If I die a virgin, all the more power to me! I'm going off on a major tangent, but I don't care.

Love is so often confused with lust nowadays, it's pathetic. The human race is pathetic. Our way of thinking is just... stupid. I want peace amongst humans--no more diversity, no more anger, no more... anything vile. That's a HUGE wish on my half, but damn it, I want it. This world, otherwise, is going to hell if it's not already there.

I'm done.

Eee! I dunno why this excites me, but it does. I have been in five musicals in my life. When I was in third grade, we (my class) did this twenty-minute version of "The Wizard of Oz." I was just a member of the chorus. In fourth grade, my class did a short version of "The Lion King." I actually had a part! I was all happy. I played Zazu.

In sixth grade my team for MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement) won gold medals for our model of the Grand Canyon. We went up to Mesa, Arizona (near Phoenix, Arizona) and had a competition against middle schools across the state. Yeah, we won gold. We were all proud of it, too, because every other middle school hated us or something, I dunno. When we were walking out by the buses, though, all of the high schools were shouting our names and junk and being all happy for us. I swear to God, the funniest thing.

In eighth grade I got a writing award. At the end of the year, my group of teachers (they had us separated into two groups of teachers--don't ask me why) liked to give out awards to their students. I can't remember the exact award, but it was from my Language Arts (English, if you prefer) teacher. Something about being one of the most accomplished writers in my class--dunno. Yeah, but I was happy with that.

The summer before nineth grade, I was in the Broadway version of "The Wizard of Oz." Yes, I did the play twice. This time, however, I had a part! I had a few parts, actually. Most notably, I played the part of Auntie Em. It was fun--we got to crawl through this cellar door that was a pain in the ass. I was also a Munchkin (we all were--the tallest person being well over six feet and the shortest person being just under five feet... it was funny) and an Ozian. I was also part of the Jitterbug chorus. That was this group of six girls. I was a first soprano jitterbug singer. You couldn't hear us--damn orchestra pit--but we sang.

The summer before tenth grade I was in the Broadway version of, "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat." I had a singing solo in this. It was this short, ten-second dealio and I really wasn't an important part. Hell, I was shocked when I got the part. It was this opera-singer thing. Two other girls tried out and I was sure as hell that I didn't get it. I sang to meekly and he (our singing coach) had to get it out of me correctly, but I got the part. I was all excited. Then, of course, I was part of the chorus. Fun times.

This past summer--the summer before my junior year--I was in the Broadway version of "Fiddler on the Roof." I was just a chorus member. I didn't WANT a part. It wasn't my most favorite play. I also didn't have the time--I was retaking Algebra and busy out of my mind. It was fun. I actually made a lot of friends this past year... I miss FAYA.

Anyway, that's the basics--in random spews.

Okay... so I'm a lazy bum and don't feel like ranting anymore (surprise, surprise, eh?). It's not that hard to figure out. And, if you ever get curious, you know how to send a message! There are so many ways! You have a brain, let's use it! Okie-dokie?
