Okay, here you go: I'm nice, not especially pretty, smart, nerdy, kind of shy, a little uptight (though I have a sense of humor), and I probably have low self-esteem. I live in Upper Arlington (but not for much longer). I'm 20, and I have adult ADHD. I'm not religious, and I have no interest in religion. I don't care if you are religious, but don't bother trying to convert me. Oh, and I have a potty mouth.
Notable quirks include a love of language and its nuances, and a pet peeve regarding people who can't get they're/there/their, you're/your/yore, or to/too/two straight, and who indicate plurals with apostrophes. Also, please spell "ridiculous" correctly, or else I will be forced to refer to you http://www.how-to-spell-ridiculous.com <3
I also speak forum troll/lolcats fluently. No, I don't post on 4chan or Something Awful--I'm not quite that into the internet.
Finally, I should note that the single photo I have isn't 100% accurate. My normal appearance is a girl who is not overweight, but is not all that fit, chin-length brown hair worn in a side part (ideally...in reality, it doesn't behave at all), with no make-up, and glasses. And little to no fashion sense. -_-
I am nice, impulsive, and nerdy
My more immediate goal is moving out. I work at a small diner as a cashier/hostess, and I'm trying to get enough hours to pay rent. I plan on moving in with my best friend, and splitting rent with her.
This summer, I'm learning how to drive.
Socially, I'm not doing much. I'm shy...I don't make friends easily. I've joined a GURPS group, so I do have that going for me...but aside from that, most of my friends are on the internet.
Oh, separately: I like puzzles of almost every kind, which is probably why I mourn the death of good adventure games. Riddles, jigsaw puzzles, logic puzzles, word puzzles (crosswords, word searches, etc), sudoku, all kinds of puzzles. I'm better at word puzzles than number puzzles.
Favorite movie: The Exorcist, probably. Best movie I've seen recently: Juno was pretty good. Favorite book: IT, by Stephen King Best book I've read recently: Shogun, by James Clavell (I'm not usually into historical fiction; this book is an exception. It's REALLY good).
As to music, I played viola for nine or ten years. I'm not putting "viola" in brackets because I don't play anymore. In any case, it's hard to spend as much time with a classical instrument and not grow to like classical music, so that is indeed what I like. I also like classic rock and some alternative rock. My music tastes can be pretty eclectic, as long as it's not too weird I'll probably like it.
Favorite Song: NO IDEA, but it's probably something I grew up with. Favorite Band: I like Pink Floyd best probably. Favorite Classical Piece: Concerto in G minor "Summer" Op. 8 No. 2, Mvt. III: Presto, by Antonio Vivaldi. It's intended to be reminiscent of a summer thunderstorm, and I <3 thunderstorms.
About once a year, if I can afford it, I go to an off-broadway show over at the Palace Theater/Ohio Theater/wherever. Last year I saw Wicked, and I saw Avenue Q a couple weeks ago. Both were awesome, and Avenue Q is pretty much my official "favorite" show. I used to relate to Kate Monster in "It Sucks to be Me," but that's changed now. I'm not exactly at "Fantasies Come True," but things are heading that way.
Food and I are not friends. I'm a really picky eater. I like meat, cheese, and potatoes. Not good for me, I know...but I don't eat very much, anyway. And I take a vitamin. Hash is probably my favorite comfort food, followed by Triscuits and cheese (Triscuits and cheese being what I primarily live off of...I eat TERRIBLY). Cinnamon hot chocolate also makes me happy, especially with whipped cream on top. :D
"Kati stepped off the bus, thankful to get away from the stench. She briefly wondered when she was planning to learn to drive, as riding the bus, well, sucks. As she strolled past her old high school, she briefly considered going in and seeing if her favorite teacher was there."
I'm a little crazy, yeah. >_>
I'm just here to post on forums, really. =/
Update: I'm engaged to someone I met on this site several years ago. I've left this profile intact because I like having a snapshot of what a weirdo I was when I was 19. You can message me, but please understand that it really only serves as entertainment fodder for me now.
