My self-summary
I'm a dreamer and snarky person, traveller and homebody, wallflower and opinion-haver, doormat and fighter, and general walking and talking contradiction. I'm also a reader, feminist, historian and language lover.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying history and trying to decrease the stack of unread books on my shelves - unsuccessfully so far. I also like to cook, sew and knit, or sit around in coffeehouses talking. The rest of the time I waste my life on the internet and, since I'm obsessed with the Danube countries, plan my road trip along the Danube to the Black Sea. Oh, and sometimes I volunteer at a museum and at youth camps because I'm masochistic enough to think that chaperoning 16 year olds is fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: De Profundis by Oscar Wilde, anything by Dürrenmatt, Embers by Sándor Márai, The Master and Margarita by Michail Bulgakov, the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson.

Movies: Harold and Maude, Some Like It Hot, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Made in Hungaria, The Fearless Vampire Killers.

TV: Mad Men, The Good Wife, Community, Pushing Daisies, Veronica Mars, Firefly, OITNB.

Music: Bob Dylan, Katzenjammer, The Dandy Warhols, Cat Stevens, Parov Stelar, Element of Crime, Caro Emerald, Anajo. I also like a lot of classical music and have a very soft spot for operettas (Die Fledermaus, Orphée aux enfers).

Oh! and I recently started gaming a bit: Dragon Age, Witcher, Stardew Valley, and I put more hours into Civ V than I care to admit.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee! Books. The Internet. My family, clichéd as it is. Yarn, soft, fluffy yarn! Also I'm really indebted to the person who invented pancakes.
