My name is Dallas. Actually, it's not. It's the nickname I received when I came to Atlanta for college. One of my RAs thought it would be cool to be named after the city I was from. Since then, I'm Dallas to all who know me here - friends, professors, my boss, etc. When I'm here in Atlanta, no other name exists for me - Dallas is who I am - and I'm very happy with that. I'm used to nicknames. lol.

I'm 25, and depending on the day, I can either look a little like I'm 16 or 37; it all depends on how I'm feeling. I have one younger sister, who is 19, and an older brother, who is 29. In my head, my sister is still 10, I'm 16, and my brother is 20. I feel like we never change really. My family is in love with pets. We had a wonderful dog named Sable, officially Princess Sable, who was a dachshund. She died in January of '08 while I was home for break, and I was absolutely devastated. She was with me for so many hard times during my life; I really did lose a part of me when she left us. We also have 2 parakeets, Jimmy and Bossy. They're both green, yellow, blue, and white, and loud as all get out. We don't need roosters to wake us up, the birds do it for us just fine. Several fish also live with us. I named them awhile ago, but can't recall all of the names. I'm pretty sure they are spoiled. We used to have a small water crab named Seymour. He died, so now we have Seymour Jr.... even though he's not the child of Seymour. They just look exactly alike, and my sister loves the name Seymour.

I have several obsessions, as many of my friends know. Television is pretty high up there. I know that everyone has their "shows" that they have to watch; I do too, but I'm addicted to TV in general. My television is on about 14 hours each day on average. Usually more than that. Queer as Folk and The Office are my favorite shows ever. Queer as Folk changed my life on an astronomical level. And The Office is just one of the cleverest shows on the tube right now. Other obsessive weaknesses - journaling, the color pink, caffeine, Cherry Chapstick, creating icons, reading nonstop, theater in any form, dancing, Christmas music, and eyeshadow. I have an unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories, even with the recent ones like 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. Amazing stuff.

I work at Georgia Shakespeare Theater Company, which happens to be located on my old college campus, and I couldn't be a happier bee. I was completely addicted to that place from my sophomore year on. I blame all of this on Stephen Adams. He was so enthusiastic as a House Manager every time I went to volunteer to usher. His excitement rubbed off on me and stuck. Luckily, they decided to hire me in Box Office out of nowhere, and I've been a stone fixture there every since. I don't plan on going anywhere for awhile. lol. I'm madly in love with everyone there.

Random tidbits:

  • I'm an uber-romantic. My favorite movie when I was four was When Harry Met Sally.

  • I don't give myself enough credit; compliments kind of freak me out. I have a slight inferiority complex. I think tons of people are way cooler than I am.

  • So far in my life, I've had two people to stop and give me prophecies from God. They both said that I had a very special gift, and that I was very different from others. Part of me is afraid I'm becoming psychic. My grandmother and great-grandmother had partial psychic abilities.

  • I'm not a clean freak at all, but I'm a germophobe, and it gets a little worse every year.

  • I very much believe in love at first sight.

  • I think sushi is a god-sent creation. ;)


Remember to love.
