My self-summary

My name is Marissa. Umm, I'm 23.

Here are some traits that describe me rather well, both positive and not so positive:

Friendly, sweet, introverted, quiet, wise-ish, polite, relatively obedient, a good listener, kind of socially awkward, anxious, animal lover, bookish, a little obsessed when it comes to fandoms...

Speaking of fandoms and my current obsessions... My fandoms include Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother (Pre-finale), The Following, Teen Wolf...

The TV shows I'm currently watching, as in the shows that are running right now are as follows: Doctor Who, Scandal, The Flash, The 100, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Sherlock, Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf, How to Get Away With Murder (disregarding Viola Davis' over-dramatic acting), The Following, Mistresses, Bates Motel, Looking, The Big Bang Theory, and Ground Floor.

I love books. Entering a different world with only words and your imagination as a guide is just wonderful. Lately, I've been in the YA universe, so...The freaking Maze Runner trilogy is incredible. Divergent trilogy, The Hunger Games trilogy (although I'll admit Katniss is a cylon in the books). Every book written by Ellen Hopkins because she is the most amazing writer. JK Rowling, of course, because the level of awesome that the Harry Potter series is cannot be adequately put into words. Over 9000? No, I'm not doing that. X_X

I currently have two tattoos. The first being the Dark Mark, from Harry Potter. The second is the Slytherin crest, also from Harry Potter. I'm sure you can understand my level of obsession now. I have a small list of future tattoos, all of which are fandom-related. I also have my tongue pierced. That's as far as my body modifications go. I am a big fan of tattoos and piercing, most any body art is beautiful to me.

I've only been in a few relationships, been in love twice. I have never been engaged. I've been hurt before and am a little wary, but you most likely won't see it. I need help with follow through. I may really like you but it's the whole "me not knowing you in real life" thing that makes me extremely nervous.

I am not looking for a monogamous relationship. I'm actually not looking for a relationship at all. I just like talking to people.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a part time job as a busser/dishwasher. They won't give me more than 28 hours, therefore I'm looking for a full-time job or at least a second job because I need to be able to save money so I can go back to school.
I’m really good at
Taking care of animals, reading, editing, being there for people when they need me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, probably my chest. Or my glasses. My glasses have a kitty cat on the sides. ^_^
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Must I? I'd rather not go into detail. Let's just say...

Books: The Harry Potter series will always be my number one series of all time. The Fault in Our Stars is still the only non-fantasy novel to make me cry. Perry Moore's Hero is my favorite YA gay fiction novel. Ellen Hopkins is my queen. She writes YA and Adult real life stories in prose. Her writing is absolutely breathtaking. I've met her three times and am still shell-shocked. :) The Divergent trilogy, The Hunger Games... Anyway, so as you can see here, all of these books are YA fiction. I'm trying to get into adult fiction that's not just historical fiction. I swear!

Movies: I prefer comedies, sci-fi, and musicals.

As far as "favorite" movies go, for comedies, I suppose Anchorman, Blades of Glory, The Other Guys, and Fanboys, would be my favorites.

For the sci-fi category, I love Back to the Future, Star Wars (the original trilogy), Star Trek, Ben-X, Gamer, Serenity, and Dredd. Oh, and does Battle Royale count as a sci-fi? It's in my "Thrillers" folder... *And yes, I did just go through my movies folder.*

Musicals, I don't really think we need to go into much detail here. Not many people are into musicals as much as I am, so let's just say, I freaking love musicals and I've seen both RENT and Wicked (FANTASTIC SEATS, too) and they were both absolutely incredible.

Shows: Freaking Game of Thrones is my main fandom right now. I am absolutely in love with the show. As stated above, I have yet to read the books, so if it comes up in discussion, please no spoilers. I am rooting for either Daenerys or Arya to take the Iron Throne. I have a feeling it's going to be someone equal to the shittiness of Joffrey though. We all know his younger brother isn't going to last too long, right? RIGHT?

Music: I'm really really picky when it comes to music. I don't really listen to current music unless I'm in the car with my sister. I usually listen to 103.5 BOB FM and Spotify's 70s, 80s, and 90s Decades lists. If you want some current artists, I like...Starkid, Vallejo (TX band), is Portishead still current(?), Pentatonix (Obsessed!), Arcade Fire (recently discovered), Silversun Pickups, Muse, Birdy, Simon Curtis, A Great Big World, Dido, Adam Lambert...

Yeah, not really a fan of bands that aren't from the earlier eras. Music today infuriates me most of the time. Also, I hate 99% of all country music and rap/hip-hop disgusts me. :/

Food? I really love Greek/Mediterranean food, although I'm the only one in my family who eats it, so I don't ever get to eat said food. I also love Chinese food. :) Okay, to be honest, I'll eat most anything. I just don't eat fish (tuna excluded) or shrimp.
Six things I could never do without
1. Stimulation (Mental, physical, emotional)
2. Books!
3. My pets.
4. My sister.
5. Music!
6. New experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, evolution, reincarnation, past lives, books, love, sleep, Harry Potter, my pets, writing, singing, musicals, travel. Seriously, the list can go on.

Your result for The Harry Potter Wand Test...

10", Willow, Veela

You scored 37 wisdom, 33 bravery, 37 emotional, and 6 martyrdom!

A willow wand signifies that you care deeply about emotions, art, and intuition, and that you have a particular knack for charms. The veela hair as a wand core means that you are slightly unpredictable but very powerful.

On a typical Friday night I am
At eork. Always.

Or...I'm on my computer, doing something. Surrounded by kitty cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to collect sporks. Yes, sporks. And anything that had to do with sporks. Like those little hot sauce packets at Taco Bell, the one that had to do with sporks? Yeah. Those too. -_-"

There, that's endearing and not awkward at all. XD
You should message me if
I dunno... If you want to get to know me personally?
