My self-summary
“Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit.” ― Oscar Wilde.

^ The obligatory 'existentialist/intelligence fusion' profile quotation to show that I am 'down' with popular culture. If you don't get the irony..we are going to have problems here.

Welcome to my profile, make yourself comfortable...not too comfortable or that would be stalking. Now, I have gathered you all here for a reason....

My name is Fianna (pronounced Fe-Na), originally from Ireland (the country) and living in Chicago, for about the last 8 months.

I am a personality type seven on the Enneagram apparently...if that means anything to you.

I seem to be constantly updating this, for reasons only known to myself and which I am not all that bothered to analyze.

So yes, I have been told by generous and very kind friends that I am a rather charming individual, very well-spoken with beautiful mannerisms.

Quite chatty in nature...a rather animated talker. If you also are of the 'chatty' disposition or even the 'intense listener' than I do believe we shall get along splendidly and have many meandering little conversations about many little things over many little cups of tea...or coffee...or wine.

An interviewer once told me that I am a 'smiley' person...I just smiled in response.

I laugh at my own jokes, unashamedly and sometimes do loose control of my laugh and may snort...once, only once...and I can tell you now that I will probably have to go into a dark corner to calm myself down or risk scaring the children.

I am noted for a brutal honest streak which I suppose is both a strength and weakness of my personality although I do always get away with what I say for some reason...maybe because I am small and can pull off a great set of 'puppy-dog eyes'.

Imgur is awesome. That is all.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work as make-up artist here in Chicago, one of those MAC girls you may have seen loitering around department stores...smiling megawatt smiles.

I made some awful lyrics to The Fresh Price of Bel Air theme song a little while ago (a mix of pride and shame right now) and posted them up here...due to popular demand they shall remain but I do apologize most sincerely for those of you with delicate sensibilities....

So basically I am Irish and not in the sense of 'I have discovered my heritage', more along the lines of...

"In the west of Ireland, born and raised,
In Dublin city is where I spent most of my days,
Studying Sociology, thinking I was cool,
And kicking some ass playing pool,
When a couple of gals, they were mad as can be,
Started saying 'come on, we off to the States'
I got on one little flight and my mom called later
And said "You've moved to Chicago, have they got tea over there?"

Obviously I have no lyrical talent but I am from Dublin in Ireland (that island across from the UK where they keep the lunatics) and I speak Gaeilge (OKC does not have it labelled correctly and call it Irish, how dreadfully insulting ;)) fluently, Google it if you are bothered.

I studied Sociology in University, yes I adore it and yes I do intend to continue on to graduate level. My research interests pertain to interdisciplinary avenues (philosophy and social anthropology...political theory to a certain extent and social psychology), if you have any interest in anything feel free to message, us academic's at heart love to wax lyrical about our research.

I do have some musical talent (although the previous lyrics may not attest to that fact), I play the electric violin, which is pretty much a violin with bonus points. A small group of friends and I gather together weekly to play music, drink wine and have terribly entertaining philosophical discussions about nothing in particular.

I am an 'animal-lover' and am the proud owner of two beautiful little rascals adopted four months ago who cause a little more chaos in my life. I was thinking of taking on a chinchilla but after my Aloe Vera plant came to its untimely demise a while back, perhaps another time.

Finally managed to get back onto a rowing team, was searching for a little while. Currently doing it for pleasure and not competitively...although time may yet tell a different story.
I’m really good at
Well I do hate to brag...rather unbecoming...however I am an expert at getting my fingers burned when cooking (particularly when I roast peppers for some reason...perhaps I should buy a new tin...or keep a close eye on the capsicum family).

*An update on the cooking situation: I have purchased a pair of oven mitts, the crusade of the peppers has at last come to an end.

My goddaughter fondly says that I am great at "telling stories" - my pirate tales always seem to get a good response, the brandishing of my sword (shampoo bottle usually) has been said to be "a sight to behold". Similarly I give an excellent rendition of Shakespearean plays in this guise, although currently my audience favor Peter Pan.
The first things people usually notice about me
Accent: well this is pretty much a given. Here I have been constantly mistaken for British, which is similar to reactions back home, I don't have a 'typical' Irish accent...its a 'posh' accent is the only way to really describe it, how quaint.

Physical Appearance: my hair is its own bio-system and I am rather short in stature. I have been compared to the love-child of Kat Dennings and Scarlett Johansson which is a pretty lovely compliment I think.

Eccentric Nature: I don't know what you would really call it...if there is an it, perhaps I am more flamboyant...weird...abnormal? My friend once said..."You just don't look like the kind of person who would be into Star Trek or Star Wars and then you talk...."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I honestly have far too many favorites - Christopher Hitchens, Steig Larsson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austen, Emily Bronte, George Orwell, Ernest Hemingway, JRR Tolkien, Oliver Sacks, Ayn Rand, John Steinbeck, Lewis Carroll, Harper Lee, Thomas name but a few.

Movies: a general sample - Kill Bill, Inglorious Bastards, The Scarlett Pimpernell, Some Like It Hot, Dead Poets Society, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Kings Speech, Braveheart, The Godfather Trilogy, Life of Brian, Fight Club, Trainspotting, Memoirs of a Geisha....etc.

Shows: I don't really watch television (oh the shock and horror) but I have recently bought the Sherlock box set and adored it.

Music: Pixies, Coldplay, Joshua Radin, The Rolling Stones, Queen, David Bowie, Bon Jovi, The Cranberries, The Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, White Stripes, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Rage Against the Machine, James Brown, Nina Simone, Prince, Micheal Jackson...etc.

Food: Generally my diet tends to be mostly vegetarian but I don't classify myself as one due to my love of fish and chicken. I love Moroccan, Greek and Italian cuisine..sushi, chocolate (dark) and coffee.
The six things I could never do without
If I were a beige cube I would of course answer "oxygen, food, shelter, water...."

A beige cube with romantic tendencies "friends, family, love....hugs and kisses and rainbows...."

Well Ms. Obvious, I don't think so...I don't think I could ever live without my ability to read, to process knowledge, to understand basic concepts and to learn from mistakes. To live without freedom, if only a warm comforting notion of it...would be a life perhaps devoid of truly living.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Various things often weave themselves through my thought processes, pinpointing exactly one topic which is dominant throughout is but neigh impossible.

The basic human needs would have to be related perhaps i.e. "What shall I have for dinner tonight?"

Now I am thinking what a silly question this is. I believe if someone asked me this and I don't doubt that someone may have already, I would reply "Shhhh, I shall tell you what wanders through my thoughts if you need to know, now let us go forth and conquer the world my little friend".
On a typical Friday night I am
This question befuddles me, should there be a typical Friday night? Was I missing the day when the homely school teacher taught 'how to timetable your nightly fun'?

I do a few things depending on my plans, I don't work on evenings and thankfully only a rare Saturday so it is free for all. Movies, concerts, dinner, sleep...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was attacked by a flock of geese as a 6 year old around a farm back home...I have been highly suspicious of my feathery nemesis ever since.

I had colic as a baby (for 9 months, every family get together this is mentioned) and apparently one day after bringing me to a specialist who said "Fianna is going to do great things" I stopped and have rarely cried since...obvious exceptions like Bambi of course...personally I think this may be a 'family myth' but whatever makes them happy.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 20–35
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
you can make your own wine, i'm interested in trying this out and unfortunately am not currently in possession of a vineyard.

you have a basic understanding of grammar i.e. your and you're.

you wouldn't mind throwing yourself out of a plane for fun, or have a love of rock-climbing, extreme sports in general.

you seriously ponder why people don't randomly break out into song and a choreographed dance routine more often.

you own books, not ebooks or comics but you have a collection of books which you have opened and hopefully read.

you have a passion for travel, not just within the US but to remote and 'off the beaten track' places which does not include 'package holidays' to 'tourist resorts'.
