About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Become ambidextrous hjjhjjgs

ABOUT ME

I'm quite outgoing, neurotic, chaotic, level-headed, philosophic, annoying, batty, pensive, antisocial at times, thus prone to fostering an unhealthy obsession with nostalgia..and usually engaged in a brutal interior monologue in my head. I like to sing to combat my neuroses; deal with it. Or better yet, join me!

PHILOSOPHY

I wish I knew (and yet, I don't really). That might be creepy.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Milford Sound in New Zealand is lovely.

I loved visiting Prague, Lviv, and Florence. Climbing the Harbour Bridge in Sydney Australia was also a really cool experience. I'm afraid of heights, so it was a bit intimidating, but nevertheless exhilatering.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn so many things!!! Namely: to play piano a lot better to play the accordion to play the violin to learn how to play guitar to learn how to crochet to learn how to cook to learn how to make stained glass acting (improv and classical) bettering my geek (with DDR and Guitar Hero. I would also like to update my knowledge of older video games. That would be bitching)

I can teach you how to turn a frown upside down, and also how to make a really yummy Upside-Down Cake.
