My self-summary
Hi there! My name is Malena, but I also answer to 'Mel', 'Mellie', or 'Hey You With the Face'. Political Aficionado of a liberal leaning.

I was raised in California, but after two and a half years feel like a Seattle-ite at heart. Baseball is my sport of choice, although don't ask me to play. Tidal waves come, small children cry, Bush's get elected to office and Fire Nations attack when I play sports .

I fall into the ISTJ variety of personality, if that means anything to you.....

I have a tendency to gather new hobbies and interests like crazy. Because of this I know about a lot of topics. Sadly, most of my friends have interest in only very few of these one seems to share my passion for the last 3 generations of the Russian royal family or the nuances of late-1990's era pro-wrestlers.....

I live by the philosophy that family is who you decide it is. Mine primarily consists of various friends I have made during my time in the PNW, and my two little sisters, one of whom is the kid in several of my pictures on here. My sisters are, quite frankly, the motivation for most of my better life choices. They need to have someone to look up to ;D
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently taking a break from the intensity of 4 year-Universities, fulfilling the last of my general ed at a local JC.
I’m really good at
I am one heck of a debater, and cooking comes very naturally for me. I've also been told I'm funny, but I think it's because I don't much filter my thoughts.

Oh, and I'm advancing pretty quickly through League of Legends...
The first things people usually notice about me
My wit can be cutting but I try my best to never be intentionally unkind. I tend to keep my actual social circle small, and like to look after my friends. Loyalty is something that is very important to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oddly enough I'm actually in the process of re-reading some of my favorite books from childhood. The Great Gilly Hopkins, Great Expectations, pretty much anything along the lines of historical fiction. Oh, and I just started reading my first Dan Brown novel, Inferno. I greatly dislike Shakespeare. Only exception is 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

As for TV, I am an avid fan of Once Upon a Time, Two Broke Girls, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory and 90% of MSNBC Political Commentary shows (love Rachel Maddow, but Chris Matthews and Joe Scarbough can burn in hell). I have a few more that I am ashamed of. I can't help it, I can't quite watching until I figure out how it's possible to survive that much stupid.

My musical tastes are highly eclectic, with my iPod filled with everything from showtunes to country western to 90's rap music to the occasional pop song or romantic ballad. But no Dubstep or Techno. I just can't.

Movies are a pleasure I partake in whenever possible. I don't particularly enjoy RomComs, but they aren't all bad.. I love, let me repeat, LOVE horror movies, even though I tend to be a little paranoid about windows and showers for a few hours after watching them. The adrenaline rush is addicting. I also have a few movies I'm attached to from childhood, like Austin Powers and Wayne's World. I also reeeeeeeally like movies with subtitles. Especially if it's a language I don't know a single word of.

Whilst I love video games, I have yet to figure out a way to play for more than 2 hours without getting motion sickness.

In my opinion, cooking isn't a hobby, nay, even an art form, it is a way of life. So, I guess you could say I take it pretty seriously. I love cooking. I've been told I'm pretty good at it, too. Name a recipe, and if I don't already know how to make it, generally, I'll learn how. Except anything involving Brussels Sprouts. Those are the embodiment of pure satanic evil.
The six things I could never do without
Running Water
Fuzzy Blankets
Tea/Hot Chocolate
Time to daydream
24/hour Political News Commentary
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. And worrying too. Worrying is my strongest natural talent. However, most of the time I just think about how much better my country would be if they would just give me absolute control of the government already.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping. Working retail is emotionally exhausting for me, so I usually get home an knock out. Otherwise I will more than likely get talked into going to a club with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like my birthday. I usually get sick around my birthday, and it was always disappointing when I was younger, even when I wasn't sick, so I just don't really enjoy it anymore.

Oh, and I'm not so great with people I don't know, unless I'm at work. I get kind of nervous and chatter on. Once I'm comfortable, I'm golden, but past experience has left me a little inexperienced with people my own age.
You should message me if
You think something magical could happen here, whether it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship, something romantic, or co-world domination.

Unless of course you plan to turn on me once we succeed, in which case proceed at your own risk. I have sharks with friggin' laser beams attached to their friggin' heads.
