I'm an INFJ.

I'm cuddly and affectionate.
I love to learn things, any things. And then tell you all about
I love to listen to people talk about subjects they love, and then
have long debates and discussions about it.
I like puzzles, physical problem solving (building stuff when you

What I’m doing with my life

Spending time with my boyfriend, friends, and their pets.

Procrastinating, gushing about doggies, being outside, cleaning,

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tend to comment on my abnormally tiny hands a lot. In fact,
people seem to get the impression that I'm incredibly tiny in

your kneecaps if you try to pick me up.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Languages. Ethics. Academics. Popular culture, social dynamics and
how those affect our lives. Sociolinguistics. My cello, choir, and
music in general. Fanfiction and Fandom. Tumblr. Kink and its
infinite possibilities. What I want out of my education and my life
in general. All the awesome books I need to read. How fucking
awesome science is. How I would execute a long-term
wilderness-survival situation. Dogs and puppies. Whether or not I
can get away with not doing laundry for one more day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Curled up watching movies or just talking about the universe with
someone. Running around with my boyfriend's dog. Discussing a SJ
and/or complex moral issues with a friend. Watching one of my
favourite shows on my computer (and screaming about the subtleties
of characterization and cinematography on tumblr). Playing neopets.
Indulging in fanfiction (Anyone want to talk Johnlock, Snarry,
Hannigram, or Doctor/Rose Tyler with me? Let us squee together
about our OTPs!). Snuggling with the cats.
((It's a very exciting, extroverted life I lead, obviously.))
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get really nervous about messaging people. I'm working on taking
the initiative, though!
ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety are the arch-enemies that invade my
brain and require me to fight brain wars occasionally.
Half of me wants to have an exciting career that lets me travel
around the world. The other half wants to be a stay at home
homeschooling mom with three large dogs and a smattering of cats.
I'm still not sure how I'm going to satisfy both halves.
