About me.

"You shall love your crooked neighbor with all your crooked heart."

Hello, my name is Rachel. I suppose some would categorize me as the "liberal hippie douche bag" type, which is accurate in one way or another.
Here are some things you probably don't care too much about:
I am a vegetarian.
I am seventeen and of the female persuasion.
I live in the United States and I hate a lot of Americans. 'MURICA, FUCK YEAH.
Specifically, I live in Colorado and I don't know what I would do without mountains.
I am completely and totally a goofball.
I try to keep a very open mind and understand reasonings for others' beliefs, though I do feel strongly about my own opinions and morals.
I love debates. And good humor, and meeting new people, so don't be a stranger.
I'm a member of Amensty International <3 (PS this means I've been an activist for more than three weeks when I watched a video on Facebook)
I am very friendly and enjoy a good chat with almost anyone.
I love to read, and have a nerdy side to me, which few besides my close friends have seen.
I love my pets, and have an obsession with my kitty, Knish. Meow.
I would consider myself an Agnostic, and discussing spirituality and religion intrigues me to no end.
I associate with the Jewish religion because of family, but I am not a religious person at all. I'm in it more for the cultural aspect, the way I see it.
I am going on a five week trip to Israel this summer, and I'm stoked.
I enjoy controversy and learning about new ideas and people.
I love to travel and experience new cultures.
I listen to a lot of music, mostly like folky stuff, but I have a wide range of tastes. I also sing and play the ukulele.
I have not come to a final desicion about whether Dumbledore or Gandolph is the greater wizard.
My family owns a Prius.
My sister introduced me to this site. She is a pretty cool cat for a fourteen-year-old. smorgasboardglow, that's her.
