My self-summary
That girl with the short skirt and the long jacket that you're always hearing about.

But really, a grad student.

I am honest, nerdy, and verbose -- and PS: I rarely if ever respond to messages on here anymore, so if you want a reply, you had better blow me over with your endless wit and charm (and grammatical aptitude: I won't bother replying unless your spelling is pristine).
What I’m doing with my life
Grad school. Drowning in books.
I’m really good at
Writing and copyediting, taking spontaneous portraits, dressing like both a cat lady and a small child, recalling seemingly useless bits of pop culture knowledge, playing Jeopardy!, making mix CD's, witty conversation, listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short and slight, so it's hard to find me in a crowd, unless I open my mouth. I can be bold and chatty, and have a nasty habit of revealing too much about myself on first meeting. Also, my vocabulary is rather distinct.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Literature: Antigone, Brave New World, Cat's Cradle, Everything Is Illuminated, Harry Potter, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Into The Wild, Killing Yourself To Live, The Liar, Lolita, Middlesex, The Namesake, Paint It Black, Paper Towns, The Time Traveler's Wife, The Virgin Suicides, Wuthering Heights, assorted Tennessee Williams plays

Film: Aladdin, The Big Sleep, The Blues Brothers, Brick, Bowling For Columbine, Closer, Cold Mountain, The English Patient, In Bruges, La Vie En Rose, My Fellow Americans, The Pianist, The Professional, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Schindler's List, Shakespeare in Love, Walk The Line, Y Tu Mamá También, almost any movie-musical

Music: Bon Iver, CAKE, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Elliott Smith, Frederic Chopin, Iron & Wine, Jenny Lewis, The Killers, Laura Marling, M. Ward, The Mountain Goats, Nick Drake, She & Him, Simon and Garfunkel, so much more ranging from classic rock to electropop to showtunes to more weepy boys with guitars

Food: Caesar salad, chips and salsa, escargot, fajitas, guacamole, hot and sour soup, noodles, Nutella, anything Chinese or Thai.
Six things I could never do without
My family
My iTunes library
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to properly verbalize what I'm thinking, the nature of the ephemeral, possible future careers, romance, Corgi puppies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies/playing Scrabble/doing something else with friends, going home for the weekend, reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of the last boyfriends that I had took me out on a date once, and was about to kiss me goodnight when he turned to me and told me that he thought that ours was going to be the relationship that "inspired" him to go into the priesthood. We limped on for another couple of months before I let him go, and then he did.

Then, I dated a guy whom I met on here, and he dumped me after the summer so he could "make out with other girls at parties." The current count on that stands something like me: 4, him: indeterminate (but I am pretty sure he is losing that game).
You should message me if
You want to get to know me better! Or if nerdfighters are your thing.
The two of us
