About thisdesertlife09

I'm a 27 year old college graduate from the suburbs of Chicago. I'm beginning my graduate degree in Social Work at UIC. I love: Counting Crows. Pit bulls. Indie movies. Quotes. Summer days at the beach. Chick lit. Writing fiction. Dreaming about "someday...". Watching anything that relates to vampires or faraway places (House Hunters International). I use Hoarders and Clean House as motivation to clean. I'm a Democrat. The end :)
