I’m Allyson Rae. If you are reading this, you probably already know that. Or you are just insanely curious and like to creep strange people. Either way, that is my name. :) People call me Allyson, Ally, Al, Ally-Rae, and “hey, you.” My best friends call me B—for reasons unknown to you. ;) No one else is allowed to, so don’t even try it.
I am 23 and a recent graduate of SUNY Fredonia. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Applied Music. So basically I have no idea what to do with my life now.
Start a band? Eat chips? All I know is at least I am happy. My future is wide open, which is liberating and terrifying at the same time. And I know that in the end, I will wind up where I am meant to be. Life has a funny way of working out like that.
I’ve worked at T.J. Maxx for almost four years now—has it really been that long already? It’s pretty cool, 90% of the time. We have fun there, but damn, people are crazy. O.o
I fantasize about getting paid to watch TV and write about it. Seriously, it’s my dream job.
I like cats more than people. Seriously. And anytime you see me out in the world, you can assume I’d rather be in bed sleeping or watching Castle than wherever I am.
Speaking of Castle, it is the greatest show in the world. I can always count on Castle to put a smile on my face, even on my worst day. It gives me a reason to look forward to Mondays. And on January 31, 2012, the creator of Castle, Andrew W. Marlowe tweeted me back. I had a small heart attack.
I speak fluent sarcasm, and my sense of humor permeates my every move. Some people don’t get that about me.
I have carlanaphobia, which, according to Google, means a fear of driving a car. Don’t go there.
I know every word to every Taylor Swift song in existence (or at least the ones I have access to). The current Taylor Swift song count on my iPod is 249. Do not insult her in my presence because I will defend her to the death. June 21, 2011 I saw her live in Buffalo. It was the best night of my life. ♥
I am more invested in the relationships of fictional characters than I care to admit, and I would rather spend my Friday nights reblogging cute cats on Tumblr than getting white girl wasted at Old Main. I have two amazing best friends who I love more than anything, and they will be the Co-Maids of Honor at my wedding one day. Even if that means I have to marry my cat. & now I have a beautiful “nephew” whom I take great pleasure in spoiling absolutely rotten. Zachary Edward - 02/25/12 ♥
I’m single, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I don’t have to worry about anyone but myself, and it’s refreshing. But that’s not to say that I would refuse if the perfect mixture of excitement and stability waltzed into my life with bright green eyes, perfect hair and a white horse. Or if Nathan Fillion decided to pay me a visit. Just sayin’.
My life? Beautiful Mess.
But I love a lot of things about it.
I like baking cupcakes; stargazing; watching Jeopardy; singing in the shower; Harry Potter; I Love Lucy reruns; Firefly (WHY WAS THERE NO SECOND SEASON?); Nathan Fillion; For Lovers Only; sunsets; bonfires; popcorn; clean sheets; Reeses S’mores; experimenting with nail polish & nail art; house hunting TV shows; the smell of old books; improperly using semicolons; late night phone calls; good morning text messages; writing in journals; having the windows down in the car; did I mention Nathan Fillion?; pandas; & cuddling with my cats. :)
& if you just read all of this, I love you too.
Fandoms I Love & Ships I Adore:
I love TV. My first fandom was JAG (Harm & Mac for life). Since then I’ve fallen for Gilmore Girls (JavaJunkie; Luke & Lorelai), House (Huddy; House & Cuddy), Bones (Booth & Brennan), & Castle (Castle/Beckett). I also watch Mike & Molly (True love can happen for anyone), Firefly (Mal/Inara; Kaylee/Simon; Wash/Zoe), Law & Order: SVU (Elliott/Olivia<3), & Parenthood.
