FAQ About Me
1. How do you pronounce your
How did you get your name?
My parents were hippies. My dad wanted to name me
"Shy", but my mom talked him into turning it into Shyrie. My
middle name is Ara. My dad wanted my name to mean something, so,
he took the first 2 letters of each of my names to spell "Shared".
Heh, hippies. =o)3. Do you have
any brothers or sisters?
I have 4 brothers. One is Wally, my older half brother
from my father. I don't really know much about him. I have a
younger step-brother, Jesse. He is my step dad's son. I have two
younger half brothers, Daniel and Charlie. They are from my mom
and step dad. My dad thinks he had a daughter, but has never been
able to find out for sure (he saw his ex with a baby about a year
after they broke up). I know nothing about her.4. Where do you live?
I live in beautiful Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I
really love this city. The longer I am here, the more I love
it.5. Where do your parents
My mom, step dad and younger half brothers live in
Tucson, Arizona. I don't really know where my father lives. One of
my aunts lives in Philadelphia, and my other aunt (on my mom's
side) lives in New Jersey, as well as my
grandmother.6. What do you like
I am a fan of Industrial music. I like to go to live
shows and "goth" nights at clubs. I love riding my bicycle all
around the city. I like to hang out with my friends and watch
films at the Ritz (usually foreign or "artsy" films). I like to
sleep, but find it hard to manage with school. I like to drink
coffee.7. What is your favorite
I love a bunch of bands. Some of my favorites are Das
Ich, Skinny Puppy (and all the side projects), Nine Inch Nails
(old), Coil, Psychopomps and Current 93. There are tons of other
bands I like too. There are even a few bands from the 70s in my
collection.8. What is your
If I had to chose one, I'd probably say Blue Velvet.
It was one of the first "twisted" movies I saw. I really like a
lot of movies. Other films I like are Rush, 8mm, Trainspotting,
Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, The Matrix and The Rocky
Horror Picture Show.9. What is
your favorite color?
I am a fan of black.. I know, I know.. It's not
"technically" a color. I like green a lot too, and shades of dark
blue, red and purple. But, mostly black and
green.10. Are you
When I am putting up this web page, yes, I am single.
This could of course change at any moment. I am not "looking" for
anyone at the moment, either. I am pretty happy being
single.11. What is your favorite
I don't really watch TV. I really used to like The
X-Files and The Simpsons. Other than that, I don't watch TV in my
free time at all. I see occasional shows at work or at friend's
houses.12. Who is your favorite
Hah! Me, read for fun? Not in years. I don't even know
what I'd like to read for fun. School has sucked most of my free
time away.13. What do you go to
I am a biology major at Rutgers University. I have an
associate's degree from Community College of Philadelphia. It is
in "Clinical Laboratory Technician". I want to work in either a
research lab or a clinical lab once I get my diploma. After that,
I want to start learning more about computers. Oh, I am a German
Minor (well, hopefully).14. Do
you have any pets?
Yup, I have 2 1/2 cats, and 2 fishes. My cats are
Schlaf (German for "sleep") and Clone. Schlaf was named because he
used to fall asleep everywhere (even in my shoes). Clone was named
for 2 reasons. The first was because I lost Schlaf's brother Prone
(he was "prone" to accidents) and I figured Clone sounded similar
to Cologne (Köln), a city in Germany. The half is for a stray
(that I call The Stray) that comes into my house a lot. She's
cute, but, won't let me touch her. I also have 2 fishes, and
African Cichlid, and a Pleco (the kind that sucks up to the sides
of the tank).
