I'm a mix of Slowpoke and Gyarados, with a huge tablespoon of Eren Jäger and rainbow sprinkles to top it all off. I like to think of myself as the artsy type just because I can sort of write and take pictures! One of my favourite pastimes is watching sweet, calming docs about serial killers and urban legends (so I can get scared later on!)
"We believe in freedom from fear, in denying fear the power to influence our decisions. We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another. We believe in shouting for those who can only whisper, in defending those who cannot defend themselves. We believe, not just in bold words but in bold deeds to match them." -Veronica Roth, [Dauntless Manifesto]
That pretty much sums me up.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
*shrugs* why not
Everything related to Tolkien, My Little Pony, Divergent (books), Matched series, everything Hayao Miayazaki, The Fight Club, Lord Byron, Marvel Comics, Batman villains, Arctic Monkeys, manga and anime. I'm a true cat-lady and my relationship with chocolate is something like a Buddhist bond between soul and body.
Music, Movies, and Books
Alice in Wonderland, almost anything written by Tolkien, The Female Man (Joanna Russ), Narnia (CS Lewis), The Maze Runner series (James Dashner), JK Rowling's Harry Potter series, Ender's Game (Orson Scott), Uglies series (Scott Westerfeld), Matched series (Ally Condie), How I Learned to Love the Walrus (Beth Orsoff), Must Love Otters (Eliza Gordon), Just Listen / This Lullaby (Sarah Dessen), The Virgin Suicides (Jeffrey Eugenides). Love me some Kristen Ashley, Alice Clayton, Yoko Ogawa, and Marianne Keyes too. Lottsa music and lottsa movies, too, but I read more than i watch movies so there's that.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
*Winning writing contests every year through all my high school years.
*Lord Of The Rings lecture that left everyone awestruck and made me feel like a nerd. A proud nerd.
*I've read 50 books in 1 month.
*Last year I set a Goodread's challenge to read 150 books... in the end I read 161, and I plan on overpassing that record this year :)
Teach, Learn, Share
I make a mean apple crumble, and brownies that taste like heaven... I'm also good with moussaka and latke, and some Spanish food and pasta. Mostly pasta.
