I love music! But who doesn't? My favourite generas are indie and alternative, but you'll also catch me listening to a musical soundtrack every now and then.
I'm an avid reader. I love stories and storytelling (theater kid much?). I do most of my reading on my commute to and from school, so I'd say I get through about a book a week (thanks to copious subway delays).
I love going to the movies, it's one of my favourite family activities! I love them so much, that I'm currently trying to get a job at my local Cineplex (that's dedication!)
I don't watch too many movies, so I can't say that I have a lot of favourites. I really do love going out to the cinema though (it's that special popcorn smell). I'm a sucker for older films, with my favourite era for films being the 80s.
I love to write. I love working on pieces of creative non-fiction, short stories, articles, and poetry. At the moment I'm looking into studying journalism and communications at the post-secondary level, so written communication is a valuable skill to practice! I'm also a part of Carpanatomy (the school news paper) as a arts and entertainment journalist.
I've been taking vocal lessons for the last two years, and recently completed my level 5 RCM examination, and sang in the Kiwanis Festival. Previously I was in a choir that often sang at the distillery and at City Hall, and before that I did musical theater with various companies. I also do a mean karaoke version of a-ha's Take On Me
When I have some spare time I also love baking! The real dream is to run a bakery, but unfortunately what I make isn't quite that gourmet. It's a really fun thing to do with friends, with my favourite thing to bake being lemon squares!
Theater has always been a huge part of my life. I'm currently in the arts program for drama, and I've been in theater since kindergarten. Although I don't think I'll go in to it as a career, it is something deeply fulfilling and endlessly fun for me! I love working behind the scenes, doing stage managing and production design, as well as being on stage. I spend most of my summers in theater intensives, with my favourite one being a two-week clown intensive.
I would also argue that petting my animals is one of my hobbies, because I do it quite often. We've got two cats and a dog, Peanut (white and brown), Dawn (black and brown), and Yo-Bob the dog.
