Getting to know One Another

February 26 2014

Wow! I never thought I would be picked, let alone know what to write. I look back at all the emails I have received since joining Listserve and I still can’t figure out what to write. I guess a good place to start is to introduce myself.

Hi, I’m Corrine and I’m 17 years. I live in Illinois with my aunt and our two cats. I started to live with my aunt back in September when my mom ended up in a nursing home. My mom is unable to take care of herself anymore. I go to visit her once a week in nursing home. Just yesterday (Saturday) we went out for dinner.

I like to do a lot of different things in my free time. I listen to music. My current obsessions are Tegan and Sara, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and Tame Impala. I am also obsessed with Netflix. I’m currently working my way through Orange is the New Black and Supernatural. Both those shows will be the death of me. I also watch a lot of movies. I just watched The Boys Are Back. I hope to be able to get to the library soon to check out the book that the movie is based on. Generally I try to read the book before I go see the movie.

I also like to Skype/text my boyfriend A LOT. Well when your boyfriend lives 851.8 miles away you do tend to get a bit attached to technology. I can’t imagine having a long distance relationship before smartphones/internet was invented. We met online in IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel the night before Easter of 2013. He had sent me a message. At some point during the conversation totally out of character for me I said, “I think I’m falling for you. From there we exchanged numbers. I love him dearly and hope to meet him at some point. I don’t think it will be anytime soon. He just got accepted into fire school and will be becoming an official firefighter.

I love to get to know y’all but before I end this email I will leave you with a few of my favorite quotes:

“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.” -Bob Dylan

"I'm one of those people you have to watch or else I'll wander off into the woods and forget to come back" -Jack White

"In the future everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes."- Andy Warhol

My current favorite song is “ A Miracle” by My little Pony

What is your current favorite song
