My self-summary
I'm the kind of girl who will run through the sprinklers in her best clothes. I enjoy great conversation. I'm spontaneous, but I'm also a bit conservative. I'm passionate and interested in basically everything - I love learning. I've carried on a love affair with books since before I could read. The smell of books, especially old ones, will always be my favorite smell. My totally-never-gonna-happen dream has always been to open a small, independent bookshop. I love art and philosophy, mythology and history. October through December is my favorite time of year; I'm generally so happy and nostalgic during those months. Nothing makes me happier than accomplishment, even if it's just something as simple as getting organized. I find peace and stability in cleaning. I prefer a beautiful view of the city at night than a meadow full of flowers any day. I enjoy thunderstorms more than I could ever enjoy a sunny day. I'm obsessed with dinosaurs. I'm convinced that Ben & Jerry hide an actual slice of heaven in each container. I'm quite the curious kitten; nothing escapes my interest. I've always wanted to meet someone with a like amount of curiosity - there would never be a lag in the conversation! I'm a teeny bit obsessed with analogies and metaphors. I like making them and I love noticing and analyzing them. If ever I get into a debate or argument with someone, my responses are usually chock full of them. I used to be scared of clowns (I blame it on Bozo. Unlike most people, I actually liked Pennywise) until I conquered my fear and surrounded myself with them. I now have a small, but cute collection of clowns sitting around my room; they stare, but I don't mind so much any more. I want to find someone who loves the Bentley Bros. as much as I do.

I am mercurial, sensitive, and a NerdFighter!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to work to save up enough money to go to college. In this economy, it's starting to look like a pipe dream. On days when I'm unable even to afford food this tends to seriously depress me, but I force myself to remain as optimistic as possible.
I’m really good at
...caring and listening. Putting other's needs/wants/desires/opinions and the like ahead of my own.

I've also been told that I'm a good writer.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses. My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books : Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. The Harry Potter series. Rose Madder by Stephen King. What-the-Dickens by Gregory Maguire. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. All Families Are Psychotic by Douglas Coupland. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith.

Comics. I'm a fan. Green Lantern, Batman and various graphic novels. I'm looking for recommendations so I can expand my selection. I also like many web comics.

Movies: Hackers, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Gypsy 83, Idle Hands, Child's Play, Party Monster, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Just to name a few. I mean, I have a ton of favorites.

TV Shows: The Young Ones & Bottom, Spaced, Glee, Modern Family, Bones, 30Rock, How I Met Your Mother, House, The Big Bang Theory, Burn Notice, Weeds.... Again, just to name a few.

Music: From AFI to Madonna. From Rihanna to (old school) Marilyn Manson. From Soft Cell to V.V. Brown. I like a lot of different kinds of music. I'm very open-minded.

Video games. I love them. Survival horror and action/adventure are my favorites.
Six things I could never do without
Great conversation
Compassion and understanding.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. Meaning. Why people do the things they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm typically at home. I like the quiet life. I love going out, but most of the time there's nothing I enjoy more than a quiet night at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I feel so damn scared and alone. If it's really bad, I get anxious and breathless and I lie there for a few minutes completely freaking out until I'm capable of banishing the thoughts. Thankfully, this doesn't happen often.

I used to be deathly afraid of fire. I only became capable of striking a match this past year, and even then it has to be the long kitchen matches.

I still have my old, worn out pair of steel-toed combat boots that I wore in high school, stored away. I can't bear to let go of that bad-ass part of me.
You should message me if
If you just want to talk. If you're self-assured and know what you want. If that last statement is true and you want a girl that is the same way. If you know of an awesome band that you want to sell me on. If you have a question that you can't find the answer to and need some help. If you need advice. If you have a really good joke to tell me.

A caveat: I don't reply to messages from anyone who doesn't take the time to write at least a full (5-7 sentences) paragraph. If you're truly interested in me (even as just a friend), then you've read my profile, are probably intelligent, and should have plenty to say.

Also, I'm horribly slow replying to messages.
The two of us
