I am glad there is an introduction thread, I always feel as though I should properly introduce myself before commenting on anything... My name is Anna, I am 20 years old (quite the baby, no?), and I live in Oregon. I am a college student and a hairstylist, both because it is fun, and because it enables me to pursue a degree in creative writing and literature, which, chances are, will not end up being all that lucrative. I am writer (or at least I like to fancy myself one), I like baking, sewing, and generally all things vintage, specifically 40's/50's. I am basically a 50's housewife....minus, you know, house and spouse. I spend too much of my free time reading, so if you'd like to discuss Beat literature or recite Shakespeare, I'm your girl. You all are fantastic, and I am so happy I found this forum!
