I'm not super good at "describe yourself" essays, but here we go: I just graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Music Degree. I'm looking to take a year off and get a job and then go to grad school maybe in music therapy. I currently live with my mom, I have one brother who is married, and my father passed away in June of 2004, but my uncle has kindly stepped in as a father-figure. My family and friends are amongst the most important things to me. We are very close and I am very protective of them. I am very shy at first but once I open up, I am really easy-going and love to have fun. I play and listen to a lot of music. I enjoy reading and learning things in general. I'm not a very materialistic person. I also hate drama. I am the person that my friends go to when they need someone to talk to about anything. I try my best not to judge anyone for any reason.
