My name's Lauren. I'm 20 years old, go to Ramapo College in Mahwah, and I'm training to be a financial adviser. Creative writing makes up most of my life. I want to be published and go on spoken word tours. Photography makes up the rest of it... or it would if I had a working camera. I also like painting and music, but I've taken a long hiatus from the two, and I'm almost afraid to go back to them. I love horseback riding, playing video games, reading, and being in the company of my dogs, too. I listen to everything, honestly, but my favorite bands are Dave Matthews Band, Bassnectar, Pink Floyd, Daft Punk, God Is An Astronaut, Prozzäk, Madonna, and everyone in OFWGKTA. Recently, I told myself I'm gonna start going to more shows, and I'm gonna try to actually do it. My absolute favorite movie of all time is Donnie Darko. TV-wise, my current favorite shows are South Park, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, and NCIS, but I'm really bad at keeping up. I have 9 piercings and 6 tattoos, and counting. I used to be really big into dyeing my hair all sorts of colors, and sometimes I like to entertain the thought of doing it again. My favorite season is autumn.
I'm shy... but I'm working on it. I'm also pretty awkward, but I don't think there's anything I can do about that. Words that have been used more than once by those close to me to describe me include "sweet," "charming," "understanding," and "self-deprecating," and I suppose those are all accurate. I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor, so if I say something snarky, don't take it personally. (It just means I like you that much.) I would describe myself as a spiritual agnostic. I have a big heart, even if I try to hide it at times, and it's always getting me into trouble. If I start to like you, I'll write poems about you and get really embarrassed when I go to show them to you. If anything, I can promise I'm worth getting to know.
Truth be told, I have a lot going on in my life right now, so I'm not looking for anything too serious or complicated right now.
