My self-summary
I'm 24, a huge dork, and an obsessive coffee drinker. I care too much about politics and get emotionally invested in too any books and TV shows. I speak a Japanese (sort of) and studied abroad during college so I still get nostalgic and make a boatload of curry rice sometimes. I like tequila, especially with friends, and knitting, especially with tequila.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated college with a degree in creative writing and East Asian Studies (with a focus on Japan), and now I do online and social media work for non-profits. I have dreams of either changing the world one day, or opening a bookshop/bakery/coffee shop. Possibly both.
I’m really good at
I love to write, usually fairly ridiculous self-indulgent fiction, though sometimes I like to think I turn out something other people would enjoy reading as well. I also bake a killer cupcake and can make a mean cup of coffee. I can kick ass at Harry Potter trivia, though that last skill might be more embarrassing than talented.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea.... how clumsy I am, probably.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's almost impossible for me to pick a favorite book, but the top five looks something like: At Swim, Two Boys by Jamie O'Neill; Harry Potter; Pride and Prejudice; Lord of the Rings; The Picture of Dorian Gray

I nerd out pretty hardcore over TV and movies, and will talk your ear off about screenwriting and character development if given half a chance. I'll watch anything with a good story, from actually well written stuff to absurd teen dramas. I cried myself silly over the end of Doctor Who season 7, am way too emotionally invested in the BBC Sherlock, and have recently developed a bit of a comic book habit thanks to the Avengers and my ongoing love affair with Hawkeye. I love low rated NBC comedies the way a mother would love her ugliest yet most endearing child.

In music I go back and forth between somewhat respectable (I love Sufjan Stevens, the Decemberists, Arcade Fire, the Mountain Goats, etc.) and so much top 40 stuff that I'm not sure I can say I listen to it ironically anymore.

I also love playing video games, though due to a tragic lack of anything beyond a gameboy as a child I can kick ass at Wario but tend to drive myself off a cliff two seconds into a round of Halo. I can hold my own in Smash, especially if everyone has been drinking, and I'm a bit too obsessed with Portal and anything on Nintendo DS.

I'd be a serious foodie if I could afford it and could kick my secret love of bad Chinese food. I love sushi, good barbeque, overly expensive expertly made espresso, good beer, and any form of pie.
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends, my laptop, coffee, a good pen, my gecko, music. (That first one is cheating, I think.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm currently reading or writing, politics, what sort of ingredients would go into the most delicious muffin ever.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully out with friends at a good bar/movie/restaurant. Recently I've been at the office, though hopefully that trend has stopped for a long while. Otherwise, at home curled up with a good movie or book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once got runner up in a TV show's official fan fiction contest. Embarrassingly recently, actually....
