I love my piano. I used to play pretty well, but I don't practice any more like I should. That's partly because I've got too much going on in my life right now and partly because the piano is in pretty bad shape. It's out of tune and though it can be tuned it won't hold a tuning for more than a few days, so that's kind of a waste of money at this point.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
