My self-summary
Music junkie, film enthusiast, book lover, poet, student, feminist, and a whole lot of other things.

(One day I will fully re-work this summary, but I don't think today's that day.)
What I’m doing with my life
For the longest time, this section said I was studying English with a possible future in teaching, with the caveat that I "might end up writing for films and theatre and starving to death".

Well, I graduated with a master's degree in English, and now I'm in film school. So. That's a thing that happened.
I’m really good at
Learning languages, writing, being sarcastic, running no-budget film sets in a logical manner, wasting time when I have nowhere to be.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Disney princess length hair.

Except these days I find myself more often than not twisting it into an inconspicuous bun, so I guess I should figure out a new thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Plays/Whatevs: Alex Garland's The Tesseract, Neil Gaiman's American Gods, Irvine Welsh's Glue, Terry Pratchett's Thief of Time, Shakespeare's Hamlet, any poetry book featuring works by Vladimir Mayakovsky or Charles Bukowski. I did my bachelor's thesis on Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, and my master's thesis on Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin, so those two are also pretty close to my heart.

Comics: Ongoing: Sex Criminals, Saga, Black Widow, Daredevil, The Fade Out, Bitch Planet.
Classics: Preacher, Hellblazer, Blue Monday, Scott Pilgrim, Hawkeye (Fraction/Aja & co.), She-Hulk (Soule/Pulido & co.), Secret Avengers (Kot/Walsh).

Movies: These are only a few examples, but... Amores perros, Singin' in the Rain, La mala educación, Dogma, Robin Hood - Men in Tights, Clueless, The Fall, The Guest, The Breakfast Club, It Happened One Night, early Marx Brothers movies, Cecil B. Demented, Rocky Horror Picture Show & Singles. I will also watch most pre-code movies I can get my hands on at least once.

TV: Black Books, The Mighty Boosh, The Young Ones, Monty Python's Flying Circus, United States of Tara, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Deadwood, Southland, Soap, Halt and Catch Fire.

Music: SO MUCH MUSIC. There used to be a long list here but I took it out because it ended up being mostly an unhelpful wall of text. Let me just state that I'm not picky about genres, but I'm picky within genres.

Food: FOOD.
Six things I could never do without
Writing as a hobby and a passion. Life is so much better inside my head. Sometimes I manage to capture some of that on paper or on the screen, and then I'm happy for a while.
Music. Music has played a major part in the process of me becoming who I am today. Plus it serves as a good element of distraction at times.
My loved ones. Also known as family and friends. The people I keep coming back to even though they sometimes annoy the hell out of me.
Reading. Escapism = love. (Also love = escapism? But that is a different matter entirely.)
Being happy at times. Quite self-explanatory. I don't have to be happy all the time, but being happy sometimes really is quite nice.
& Laughter. Both mine and that of others. I don't consider myself all that funny, but I get a warm fuzzy feeling from making people laugh. And I like laughing myself, which might explain the prominence of comedies (and stuff that's known for having a humour aspect to it) in my "Favourites" section.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The way people talk. Both the way they structure their thoughts, and the physical act of talking.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, wondering when I can go the hell to sleep.

(The new school year has been rewarding but tiring so far.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think certain sounds are sexy. And I mean the sounds that speech consists of.
You should message me if
You feel like you want to get to know me. (Oh how original.) Just get to it!

Also, if there is a song/book/movie/poem/cookie you think I would really like if I'd only heard about it, and you want to be the person who alerts me to the existence of this wondrous thing.
The two of us
