My self-summary
Hello, hello. My name's Amanda.

I'm a Summerfield native, though I go back and forth between Summerfield and Greensboro (I'm mostly in Greensboro because I go to school at UNCG, where I'm a graduate student). I live with my two older brothers in Greensboro, but I visit my parents pretty often. I also have a really needy, really fluffy cat named Lacey.

I've got a BA in English (I had a second major in history, as well) and I'm currently working on a Master's of Library and Information Science. Yes, I'm working on a degree in library science. Yes, you need a degree to be a professional librarian. Whaaat? I know. Crazy.

Let's see... I'm a pretty sarcastic person. I can also be sort of blunt, but it takes a while for me to open up. I'm a mountains girl, 'cause this redhead skin BURNS. I call soda "pop" because my family's from Michigan. I have very strong political views and education is my most passionate social and political issue. I prefer late autumn to winter over summer, and I really need to move somewhere super cold. :P

Also, I should mention that I don't really pay attention to sports, but I know enough about football to maaaybe be able to talk about it. Maybe.
What I’m doing with my life
As I've said before, I'm working on a grad program, which takes up a lot of my time during the school year. I'm also employed at UNCG's Jackson Library, working in two different sections of one department and also as a grad assistant.

When I'm not working on group work assignments, I'm usually writing for fun, reading, or trolling people on DayZ. Or playing other games. Or really... mostly just watching Netflix. But I don't have a lot of free time right now. I'm all work and school, uuugh.
I’m really good at
Hmm.. reading books, writing (creatively and otherwise), being awkward in presentations at school, cracking punny jokes, listening to my friends' problems... trolling people in games.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind of... awkward? I don't know.

I also kind of want to say that I have fabulous eyes (even though my dad says they're brown cause I'm so full of shit).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: Give me ALL of the Dante. Anything by Michael Crichton. Any of those horrible awful stereotypical make-me-wanna-cry-my-eyes-out post-apocalyptic science fiction. Medieval lit. Anything that shows the dark side of war (Johnny Got His Gun, anyone?)...

Favorite shows: Warehouse 13, X-Files, Fringe, the Following, Supernatural, American Horror Story, the Strain, Fear the Walking Dead, Nikita, the Librarians, Continuum, Sons of Anarchy, etc

Favorite movies: Margin Call, A Clockwork Orange, Shutter Island, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Lion King, Inception, District 9, Across the Universe, the Purge, Afflicted, etc.

Favorite music: I will listen to almost anything--except wubstep. Wubwubwubwubwubwub. Can't make me enjoy dubstep. Or country, ugh.

Favorite food: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Italian, Greek, American, Australian (meat pies?!)...whatever.

Favorite quote:
"You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul. " - Max Ehrmann

Favorite games: DayZ, Spec Ops: the Line, Pokemon, Final Fantasy series, Mafia 2, Game Dev Tycoon, Sims 3, Tomb Raider, Chrono Cross, etc

You should message me if

where's number two?
3. you're mature enough to realize that partying isn't all that important or productive.
4. you know the differences between "you're" and "your" and "there," "their," and "they're," and you can spell that "d" word that nobody can spell.
4.5. you have some morals...
5. you're still interested, haha.
5.75. you're not a conservative republican (sorry, i know that this is a rough "requirement," but i have tried to look past it several times and it never actually works...)
