My name is Christie! I'm very geeky, as I grew up surrounded by 1980s X-Men comics, a family with two generations of Dungeons and Dragons players, and video games galore. I'm also nerdy, because I'm a huge academia fan. I love school, I love learning, and I want to keep learning forever. I love to laugh. I have a big fixation with horror films. My favorite books are in the genres of fantasy, crime mystery, or historical fiction. I spend a lot of time singing, and I play guitar.
My personality type is ENTJ, if you wonder.
Writing is one of my passions; I love all kinds. Journalism and historiography are fun, but my one true love is fiction writing. I'd never try to rely on it as a career, because it barely pays the bills (if at all), but writing short stories, snapshot-style prose, and novellas is one of my biggest hobbies. I'm currently in the process of planning my first full-length novel, which is taking a very long time.
More often than not, I'd rather stay home and watch cult classics or play a game of Scrabble than go out partying. I'm not big on drinking, I never do drugs, and I'm super awkward sometimes. I often blurt out things before really thinking, and when you combine that with my brutally honest outlook, I can sometimes say things in ways that make me sound really rude. I try to be kind to everyone, though, and I really value respect.
I have a funny mix of realism and idealism going on. I like to look for the best in people, but I'm also not necessarily accepting and a pushover for people who just don't have great attitudes. I won't make excuses for a person who commits immoral actions, because everyone has good and bad in them. The choices we make, not the possibilities we have, define us. I'm very outspoken, and I'll stand up against something that's immoral or otherwise wrong.
I'm very competitive, and sometimes I let my determination to be victorious get the best of me. I know this about myself, though, and it really isn't something I'm proud of. I'll never enjoy arguments, but sometimes I just can't quit while I'm ahead. It's something I hope my partner can understand and deal with by my side as I grow out of that nasty habit.
Anyway, my ability to be objective lets me step back from a conflict once the fire has cooled and really analyze why the argument happened and what can be done about it going forward. That analysis is really what can help two people grow and learn together; they learn about themselves, each other, and the unit they are as a couple.
In short, I love reading, crime shows, supernatural shows, horror movies, music, dancing, fantasy/sci-fi, comics, and comedy.
