I’m in my early twenties. I am an ardent supporter of Team Unicorn. I wholeheartedly love the house of gold and maroon. Ya’ll I rock the snuggie like a hurricane.
I suppose you could say I am passionate — which, consequently helped me get a job, and before that, an internship. I pour my heart into what I love. Speaking of heart, I wear mine on my sleeve.
I love hot pink. I think I actually wear a pink item of clothing every single day. What can I say? It makes me feel empowered. Speaking of empowerment, in my high school days, I went to a ton of activism conferences centered around youth empowerment. I think participating in those have made me a much more confident person. I have no qualms about public speaking, however, I am more comfortable delivering a speech in front of strangers than my friends. While we’re on the topic of the color pink, I should let the cat out of the bag and state that I am a feminist, meaning that I think women, men, and transgendered should have equality.
I am madly in love with a boy. No, I do not have a ring on it, but I want one! (Hi, favorite ily!) We are both fluent in sarcasm, but he schools me quite a bit. I consider myself a world traveler because I have been to Canada, Florida, and Wisconsin. I do dream of going to Europe someday.
I quote movies, constantly. I love gadgets, when they become affordable to me, I usually get them. I own an eReader and am enamored with it. Speaking of owning things, I am at over 1,000 books, yet still cannot stop collecting. I check my goodreads more than I check my facebook.
While I confess my nerdisms, I need to let you know, I once dressed up as a Sailor Scout to promote the manga section of my library.
When it comes to books, I have many loves. I am poly-amorous. Among my all time favorites are The Once And Future King by TH White, The Phantom Tollbooth by Norman Juster, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn, Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, and the list goes on. I am that nerd who gushes about books to people I know in real life. If someone likes music, then yes, I do push a music related book on them. Aside from fiction, I love poetry. In high school, I used to perform slam poetry. I was not as good as my teammates, however, I had some talent. Someday, I promise I will make a video for you, dear reader. My favorite poem of all time is The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by TS Eliot. My second favorite is Howl by Allen Ginsberg.
