My self-summary
"I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions." -Augusten Burroughs

Hey there interweb, my name's Shay and welcome to my little corner.

I'm currently attending AACC, trying to get my gen eds out of the way since I have less than no idea about what I want to be when I grow up.

My family is very important to me and I wouldn't have it any other way. My friends (aka my second family) tend to be like me: goofy with rampant albeit proud streaks of nerdy geekiness.

I love music and I play a little piano (it's something I'm trying to get back into). On the listening side of things I'm into a mix between pop and rock and I almost never say no to a female front woman.

I'm a total nerd; I can't get enough of books. I'm more likely to stay home and read than go out partying, though I've been known to do both if the mood/opportunity strikes. Note: this side flares up in the presence of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games trilogy, and with almost all things Disney related.

My geek-chic side rends to flare up in the presence of classic RPG's, Final Fantasy, Rock Band/Guitar Hero, and pretty much anything done by BioWare industries, especially the Mass Effect trilogy.

To put it simply, I'm a complex girl who (mostly) enjoys her eccentricities.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now...I'm trying to find out who I am. I think I've always been defined by something else, whether it was my school, my family, or my friends.
But I'm not without goals; I do want things out of life and I plan on getting them. Just...maybe not today. Tomorrow's looking great though.
I’m really good at
The vague game; I'm fantastic at that, if I do say so myself. :D

I also like to think I'm a pretty good writer; at the very least it's something I've always enjoyed doing.
And I've been dabbling in the digital arts, like editing and computer graphics, for the past couple years and I've got a decent eye, I think.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I'm pretty shy and soft spoken - at least until you get to know me.

Other than that, well, I don't know; you tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love to read, especially things more in the realm of the fantastical, though I draw the line at Twilight. Harry Potter, Sweep, Rowan Hood, The Hunger Games, Animal Farm, Macbeth, As I Lay Dying, His Dark Materials Trilogy, and pretty much anything written by Margaret Peterson Haddix, Nancy Springer, or Tamara Pierce rank up there in my book, haha. I've recently become a fan of Timothy Zahn as well.

Movies: Sexy Evil Genius, Fire, I Can't Think Straight, The Help, The Secret Life of Bees, Underworld, X-Men, Burglar, The Hunger Games, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Air I Breathe, Dear Santa, It's In The Water, Hide & Seek, Sleepy Hollow, Final Destination, The Avengers, Star Wars, Pretty Woman, Resident Evil, Lord of the Rings, Sleeping With the Enemy, and many many more.

Shows: Game Of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lost Girl, Doctor Who, Firefly, Orphan Black, Downton Abbey, Castle, Fullmetal Alchemist, Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Orange Is The New Black, Angel the Series, The Fosters, The Walking Dead, Dollhouse, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Charmed, Xena: Warrior Princess, Defiance, Once Upon A Time, Law & Order: SVU, M*A*S*H, Legend Of The Seeker, The Golden Girls, Star Trek: Voyager, 2 Broke Girls, The L Word, Futurama, Hot In Cleveland, Will & Grace, & South Park.

Music: Music has always been a big part of my life and, honestly, there isn't really a favorite artist or genre for me. My taste ranges from Marina & the Diamonds to Icon For Hire, from Within Temptation to Nirvana, and lands almost everywhere in between. Plus, I'm always open to suggestions!

Videogames: Mass Effect, Final Fantasy, Spyro, Dragon Age, Kingdom Hearts, Saints Row, Star Wars: Force Unleashed, Little Big Planet, Rock Band/Guitar Hero, Ratchet and Clank, Left 4 Dead, and Kingdoms of Amalur.

Food: I have one rule, only one, when it comes to food: I'll try anything once. This has been both a blessing and a curse but I enjoy a little adventure :D
The six things I could never do without
My family/friends
Pen and paper
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future, what fonts to use, the zombie apocalypse, and what color I'm going to dye my hair next.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably at home, curled up in my chair/on my bed listening to music and writing or watching something on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still haven't come out to my family.
It isn't something I'm proud of but it's something very personal to me, something I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do.
You should message me if
You're interested in, well, me, I guess. Or if we have a lot in common, because, that clearly means we're both awesome. :D
