Intro



I'm Cherany, 25 years old, currently living on the Washington/Oregon border (USA), though I'm originally from Atlanta.



I live with my girlfriend, Amy. In many ways, she's my opposite, but we're a perfect match! ♥







We have two kids, a boy & a girl:



Princeton (Chow-mix)



Sasha (Beagle-mix)

My style is colorful & fun. I go to monthly clothing swaps where I snag tons of free stuff, and I shop in places like Wet Seal, Papaya, and Body Shop (the clothing store). I rarely buy anything that's not on clearance or dirt cheap to start with, because when it comes to clothes, I value quantity over quality. Things don't need to be that well-made when you have 365 outfits to make it through the year!





A few of my favorite things:



As you can see, I have trouble picking favorites. Case in point:



I change my hair a lot, because I can't choose a favorite look. I want them all! Thankfully, my hair grows at a decent pace.

Aside from shopping, photography is my top hobby. Though I've always enjoyed taking pictures, I'm just starting to learn the ropes of manual photography. I use a hybrid camera at the moment, because when I get an SLR, I'm going to want a kick ass lens, and that is way out of my price range right now. My camera has manual controls and a super zoom, but it's not as advanced as an SLR.

A few of my favorite shots from various events last summer:







I was fired from my crappy receptionist job back in September, and I haven't bothered to look for anything else yet. Being a housewife has its pros and cons: there's plenty of time to play Poupeé, but there's less reason to get dressed (for real) each day. The plan is to look for a part-time job in a photography studio, but so far, I've been too lazy to do it.

My high in the sky dream career would be as a singer.



Unfortunately, I can't sing a note. But I know good music when I hear it! In the past few years, I've really fallen in love with classical crossover.


VideoPlaylist
I made this video playlist at myflashfetish.com



My all-time favorite artist is Hayley Westenra, but as with everything else in life, I really have a million loves!



If you recognize these artists, you'll spot two that don't seem to fit. Darren Hayes and Amy Lee are two favorites of mine who don't perform classical music, though I find Amy's voice to be rather operatic and think she'd make a fantastic crossover singer.

I'll spare you my favorite foods (okay, I give in: pizza & alfredo pasta), and I think my favorite colors are covered pretty well throughout this post (Um, all of them! Actually, orange, yellow, and pink take the cake.). Anything else you want to know, just ask! (Well, within reason. If you're curious about my menstrual cycles or something, you might just want to keep that to yourself. :P)

Nice to meet you all! Here's my Poupeé if you want to add me.

Haha, we have a lot in common I guess!

Me too, I was pretty young when Savage Garden came out, and so it was actually my mother who ended up buying the CD, but after hearing it once I stole it and pretty much have worshipped it ever since. He's always been my favourite, and I DEFINITELY agree with you on TDTWM, and I actually just got my hands on the Time Machine Tour DVD (I had wanted to go but was writing a history final exam the DAY of the concert, and the venue was half my country away) and if you haven't seen it, YOU MUST. I almost cried during "I like the way", and I'm not a teary sort of person.

Darren is one of the only guys that really turns my crank, and I remember having a crush on him since I was was about 8..

It's so great to talk to another DH fan! My roommate is possibly even more nuts about him than I am, but it's neat to see people mention him here and there.

I don't have the DVD, so I'll have to get that. I honestly forgot about it! :/

I'm not one to use words like soul, but seriously, I am drawn to his soul. Just the way he feels so passionately and brings it across in his music... it's delicious!

And yes, it's great to talk music!

So did I, to be honest. I had a gift certificate about a week ago for HMV and went "..I wonder.." and lo and behold, there it was in the music DVD section.

I think that he's one of the few artists out there who actually seems willing to get intimate and personal with his listeners, I like your description and I feel that it really fits with Darren.

I also really like what you have playing in this entry, it's beautiful!

Thanks! There are actually a few different songs there, if you flip through. A couple instrumental; some vocal. (Sorry, no Darren!) The one you're referring to is by a pianist named Maksim - he's amazing & worth checking out!

So true what you said about Darren getting intimate & personal! He's just a heart on his sleeve kind of person, and I love that. ♥
