My self-summary
It's like that first day of class, and the professor asks you to introduce yourself, but you anxiously look around and are like, "Hey, wait, what do I say? I don't know who I am!"

Despite this moment of panic, you really do know yourself, you just don't know the right things to say. That's how I feel about this self-summary paragraph.

In short, I love to write and am passionate about what I do. In addition, I love to draw and doodle. I want to perfect my talents as a creative artist and use them in my future. On an average day, I'm doodling, laughing, telling awful jokes, using pop culture references, and being cynical. I also write...a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student going to uni. I go to college in New Orleans, LA, but live in San Bruno, CA near San Francisco. I'm majoring in English Writing with a minor in Sociology. No jokes about English majors, please...but seriously, no. I'm studying abroad next semester, so will be out of the states.
I’m really good at
laughing, being awkward, spacing out, writing, being wistful, and doing awful karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my shyness, then after a while, my cynicism. Oh, and that I may write long sentences eloquently, but am not able to speak so. I have a true Bay Area dialect and am often prone to using so much slang. Oh, and Spanglish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. No, but seriously, that sociological aspects of that book...there are so many things to talk about; not to mention the writing is phenomenal. I like that kind of gritty style.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Don't mess with my children's books. I can talk forever on Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, the Series of Unfortunate Events, or even Charlie Bone. I mean, a sociology class can be taught on these types of novels.
Comic Books. I can feel the judgement from your side of the screen. I mean, comic books are for children, right? Have you picked one up lately? There is some really great material going on in the graphic novel medium.
Authors I read: Isabel Allende, Jack Kerouac, Orson Welles, Gary Soto, and the list simply continues.

Shows: The limit does not exist? No, it's anything supernatural related (the show included). Oh, and I'm always game for a good detective show, like Law and Order: SVU and Criminal Minds. It might be the sociologist in me. I can talk for ages on the writing in various shows, the tropes used, and how poorly the casting is. I could probably be a pop culture major.

Movies: I'm down for action and adventure films, but will sit and watch anything animated. Don't get me started on Hayao Miyazaki or Pixar. I've been described as a movie buff before, but I really wouldn't say I am. I love films like Shawshank Redemption, Steven King's It (scared the crap out of me as a child), and Boondock Saints. Any SAW films make me queasy and I scare quite easily. I'm always down for a good cult film. Pulp Fiction, I'm looking at you.

Music: I'm all over the place. I'm not a country person, but I've jammed to Drunk on a Plane plenty of times after a friend introduced it to me. I love classic rock and will always sing along to Queen, The Rolling Stones, Journey, and Santana. I grew up on the sounds of Motown and Oldies. I mean, you can't call yourself a San Franciscan without listening to War, Tower of Power, and all the oldies classics, you know, those songs that play on Sunday Nights. Honestly, though, my current playlist is loads of indie and alternative rock like Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit, Mumford & Sons, and Milky Chance. I'll get down to some Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, and Watsky any day.

Food: Mexican, because it's the taste of my childhood. Oh, and Chinese, and wine, wait, that's not food. Since I began living in the south, I have a newfound appreciation for gumbo and beignets.
Six things I could never do without
Laptop, Internet Access, Journal, Pen, my typewriter and wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future, social theories, which concert I want to head to next, what my next project is going to be, and how many more hours until I get to see my bed again.
On a typical Friday night I am
I want to say out and about all over the town, but in reality, I'm in my bed watching Netflix. I'm probably catching up on TV shows with my roommate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm still afraid of the dark. I sound like I'm 10, right? Can you believe I'm freakin' 20 and will still run into the light or a "safe zone" after the lights are out?
You should message me if
If you just wanna talk. I'm was poorly endowed in the art of conversation. I love to talk about music and am open to music suggestions. Don't start a conversation with "hi", I'd love that, but it doesn't give me much to go on. Throw me a question and we can start from there.
The two of us
