Music Lovers

Hello everyone out there in the world. My name is Caitlin Clark, I'm 19 and this is my 2nd year at Gateway Community and Technical College. I'm a huge multi-tasker, I'm the kind of person who likes to listen to music, eat food, drink something and work on the computer ALL at the same time. In fact, I'm multitasking now. Unfortunately, multitasking isn't always good. One of the major goals for the near future for me is to graduate with an Associates Degree in Graphic Design.

One of the long time goals for me is to travel the world, I would like to learn a few foreign languages as well, for some interesting reason, I would like to learn how to speak Chinese and Japanese, some think that I'm nuts, because they will say that those languages are difficult. I have also had my share of quirky moments, like when I was born, I had to have tubes put into my ears to prevent the once-a-month seizures that I would often have. This one doctor told my parents that I was mentally challenged because I could walk or talk. What really worried and angered my parents is that one day, when I was at a daycare center, I had a seizure and the employees sent me to the hospital alone in the ambulance. My parents were very angry that day.

I'm not sure if anyone else shares my taste in music, but the kind of music I listen to is any type. I'm a die hard fan of R&B, like Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, Seal, Marvin Gaye, British Invasion era music, like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Latin music like Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Carlos Santana, Country music, like Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, rock music, like Aerosmith, Foreigner, VanHalen. My favorite band is The Rolling Stones, mainly because they have been around for a long time, at least since the 1960's. My favorite members of that band are the drummer, Charlie Watts, the guitarist Ronnie Wood, the lead singer Mick Jagger. This band and The Beatles some would say redefined rock music or something like that.

When I graduate, I hope to be good enough to go into a job like creating CD covers for famous bands/artists or creating video games or even advertising because those kinds of jobs I enjoy a lot. One really quirky thing about me is that I'm afraid of spiders. I am proud to admit that I'm an arachnophobia kind of  person, because in the woods behind my house, we have some poisonous spiders living in the woods near the train tracks. We had to actually call the Poison Control Center about this one spider in our backyard because y dad thought because it was brown that it was a brown recluse spider. Something that many people may not know about me is that I have a step-dad who is Italian. This one guy I graduated with seems to be convinced that my step-dad is with the mob because he's Italian. I told him "that's not right, that's stereotyping!" This is pretty cool to me because I love going to visit his mom. She cracks me up because sometimes she'll hear one thing and say another. She can't hear very well and if she hears someone say one thing, she hear it as another.

But I love visiting her and I also found out that my step-dad Greg has a friend named Frank that works over at Great American Ballpark, in the Concierge Service. He makes sure that when someone comes to town and they attend a Reds game, that they'll be satisfied with their visit. I'm personally glad that I'm out of high school because according to most people, senior year is supposed to be the best year of your life, the key word being SUPPOSED. Senior year for me was okay, but it seemed like an episode of Jersey Shore, only there 2 Italian guys that I graduated with instead of a lot, and a lot more drama! People seemed to bully me that year a lot for some odd reason. It seemed that only me and a few other people, mostly people in the band who shared similar music tastes. According to my mom, she is convinced that I'm a reincarnated hippie because of the way I act, dress, talk, because of my nonviolent ways. It's not that I'm nonviolent, it's just that I don't believe violence solves anything. It makes everything worse. I mean, you see how that ended up, look at all the wars we have ended up in! It also seems that in my dad's family, racial biasing runs rampant like a disease. I don't mean to sound rude about it, but it is the truth! My dad's cousin Laura and Robin were actually hoping Obama didn't make the presidential office! But anyhow, I'm pretty dull, the only thing I have interesting to say is that I'm in college and hoping to get a part time job, maybe at somewhere like Hot Topic at the Florence Mall or at the Newport Aquarium or at a bookstore, perfect job for a bookworm like me, especially someone who enjoys reading as much as I do!
That is just about everything about me! That's my life in a nutshell basically. I'm like a book, I can sometimes be boring, or at other times be interesting. Believe me, when I have about 3 cups of coffee running through my system, you should really see me then. I'm probably hilarious on caffeine.


  1. You would love Anne Rice (vamps), Agatha Christy, James Patterson

  2. That's a good one look for Blood The Last Vampire very good with great graphics! A Must See.

  3. Hey I read your comment about your sis. Designs by Dana is very reputable.
    I could not say a bad thing about them they do awesome work. Yet I would suggest Mothers Ink in the main strauss. Or Mothers ink on Dixie Highway in erlanger, right next door to Frisches big boy. In cov Tell her ask for, Chu. HE is incredible. In Erlanger tell her ask for Robin, She is super duper incredible. If she wants to get it in north side cincy tell her to go to blackbird tattoos and ask for Chris savage. Anyone she goes to tell to tell them Mike Lannigan recommended them too her. They will take very good care of her. These are some of my best friends and they do awesome work. Tell her do not just go to anybody. It is forever so you want the best. They will do her right at a good fair price.
