My name is Alix. I'm originally from England, but I now live in Indianapolis and work at the Zoo. Overall I'm a bit of a dork/nerd, but I love that about me, so you should too. I'm extremely into music (some of what I like is listed below) and art and other things (simple pleasures) and all sorts of dorky things.
I'm sometimes a social person. I like small groups not large crowds. I like random adventures. I like bowling, going to the park, wandering to random stores, going to the Falls of the Ohio, random drives in southern Indiana. In Indy, I like going to meijer, and playing board games. I don't drink and I don't "party" unless there's a ridiculous theme I can get into. I hang out and do random things with the people I love the most.
I really enjoy writing, I do it whenever I can, mainly short stories, or flash fiction, and flash non fiction. I'm a big fan of creative non fiction actually, I like to think I have some good stories to tell. I also love several artforms, but photography is the number one. I have a few cameras but my favorite is my Olympus OM1. I spend too much time doing things in photoshop, I love 'digital art.' I like to read a lot, more about that later.
I like to travel. I've been to... 36 of the 50 states. I will get to them all eventually. I've traveled to 6 countries and one overseas British territory. I love pretty much the whole United States, especially Arizona and Montana, the west in gerneral. I will rant about them form time to time. I love train trips. I love Chicago. I love road trips to random places with friends.
This is the music that's in my iTune's library. I try and update this list as often as possible, but it's usually at least a little incomplete. To see what I'm currently listening to, visit my Last.FM

Welcome to dork central! The main fandom I consider myself a part of is that of Harry Potter. I am obsessed with the books, the movies, and everything else. I am obsessed with the 3 youngest Weasley boys. I am a sorted Gryffiindor at several places and proud of it. I spend a fair amount of time at a Harry Potter based original character RPG, np_hogwarts. If you are also an HP dork, I will love you, and that is that.
I also love musicals! Mainly Wicked, RENT, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and The Last 5 Years. I am too poor to ever see any of them, except I did finally see Les Mis this summer, my first "real" musical. I LOVE Norbert Leo Butz, he is my favorite! I hope to get to see a few musicals this spring.
I am also complete enraptured with j-pop idol group Arashi. They are saccharine sweet and utterly ridiculous, and I simply can't get enough. There's something to be said for sequins and purple afro wigs.
