Hey, I'm Caroline!
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States · Member since August 2011

I'm a college student studying abroad at Royal Holloway University this fall, hoping to do some travel around England, Ireland, Scotland, and beyond on a student budget. I'm an English literature major as well as an avid musician (I play guitar, clarinet, and drums in two different bands). I'm super neat/clean/organized, and would be a respectful guest in any type of space.

Some favorites --
Books: Orwell is my hero. Haruki Murakami is up there as well. Almost anything by Shakespeare. Raymond Chandler, Roald Dahl, Dostoevsky, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Philip Larkin, Charles Bukowski. Love comics & graphic novels but wish I was more knowledgeable... all of the Alan Moore stuff I've read has been excellent, plus Blankets and Daytripper.

Music: Even more extensive. Ask me? A sampling:
- Dr. Dog, The Decemberists, Los Campesinos!, Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Cat Power, Elliott Smith, Andrew Bird, The Kinks, Camera Obscura, Belle & Sebastian, The National, Chet Baker, Kate Nash, Pavement, The Replacements, Sufjan Stevens, Yo La Tengo

Movies: Anything good. Indie stuff, old noir films, silly horror movies, Die Hard, Woody Allen's better stuff, The Brothers Bloom, (500) Days of Summer (or anything /w Joseph Gordon-Levitt)....
