Hello, What's YOUR Name?

Hello! Why, thanks for asking! My name is Evea (I know, you're like "What? How the hell do you say that?" It's pronounced "ee-vah". Think of Wall-E when he calls out to the the other robot Eve. Get it? No? That's okay, no one ever does. I know, my parents suck. I blame them too). Anyway, let see if I can describe myself in a single blog without it coming off like a bad dating website profile. 

...Although, I do happen to be single. I'm just saying. (hey, it was worth mentioning, right?)

Okay, so I am an April Fool's baby who is about to be 21-years-old in less than a month. I live in Los Angeles, CA but I grew up in San Francisco -- and yes, I mean actually in the city. I love to laugh and hang out with silly people and sing and dance like a crazy person because it freaks people out and I find it amusing. I’m 5’3”, strawberry blonde and I hate spiders. I have an unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter. I love cheesecake and all types of animals. I'm very pale, and I like it that way. I believe all the answers to life's questions can be found in a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote. I find it difficult to take anything too seriously. If "The Nightmare Before Christmas" was real, I would live in Easter Land and never leave because a world full of pastels and furry creatures sounds like a sort of heaven to me. My knees go weak over fantastical photos of our galaxy, star explosions, and the aurora borealis. I love to cook, especially with wine....sometimes I even use it in the food! (cue drums: ba dum tss!) I own way too many flowery dresses. JUST KIDDING. There's no such thing as too many flowery dresses. I'm a certified crazy cat lady! yay! I currently have two, a boy and a girl, named Buster and Madison. Unfortunately for you, I'll probably talk about them a lot. My favourite animal is a lion but I'm also quite smitten with sheep. If I wasn't trying to be a stupid actress (an unfortunate passion to be completely in love with as the success rate of this particular career is rather slim) I would probably have full tattoo sleeves and many more piercings than I do now because I think they are beautifully creative forms of expression and artistry. As it is, I only have two (visible) tattoos of simple script written on each of my wrists that say "No Fear" and "Dream Big" because those are the two philosophies I live by (hence my unwavering dedication to my fickle craft). I also have a breast cancer ribbon with my grandmother's initials on my pelvis, a very hide-able place. Two of my creative outlets are painting very tiny things on my nails and decorating cakes. Sometimes when I'm out in the world I pretend I'm Alice wandering through wonderland. And then I get all philosophical and realize.... I AM. (what? I don't know.) A part of me never grew up and thinks its still the 90's. I only surround myself with positive happy people, so if you're mean, go away. I like to make up words because sometimes the English language just doesn't have what I need to describe what the monkeys are typing in my head. If I could, I would spend the majority of my time outside because I am absolutely in love with all things nature-y(<-- see? not a real word). I'm not gonna lie, a part of me just wishes Rivendell was a real place so I could live there (Oh shit, was that a Lord of the Rings reference? I think it was.) Did I mention I'm a nerd? Also, I'm a Humanist (I guess I'm technically an Atheist, but I agree with humanist values). I try to remind myself to do at least one selfless thing for someone else everyday, even if it's as simple as holding open a door or something, because I feel that love and happiness can easily be spread to others if you are willing to make even just the smallest of efforts. I try to laugh as much as possible in one day. I love science. I'm a pottymouth, and a lot of the time, I just don't give a fuck (because who has time for that?).

Okay well that was a lot more than I intended to write, but there you go. So now onto what you will find in this blog (and I'll try to keep this one short): I don't know.

See? That wasn't so bad. lol. The truth is I'm really not sure what I'm going to blog about. Probably a smorgasbord of things that have to do with movies and books that I love, fashion and DIYs, nerdy things that only I think are funny, food, WINE (I wasn't kidding before -- I mean I was, hence the rimshot drums -- but I really love wine. It's pretty much the only alcohol I drink besides whiskey and the occasional fruity drink with toothpick umbrellas and rum) and other bits of whimsical randomness that cross my path that I feel the need to share with the rest of the interwebz.

So... yeah. This is my blog. Hi new blog!
