My self-summary
My name is Cortney. I love to read and write, yet I'm quite extroverted. Make me laugh and I'll want to be your friend. I love Sci-Fi and Pokemon. Sometimes I think I'm a 12-year-old boy trapped in a woman's body. I'm a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants. I love music, both playing it and listening to it. My idea of a perfect date involves music, good food, and laughter.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a pharmacy technician and study journalism and English lit at Ohio University. I'm building a writing portfolio and aspire to go to grad school to continue with my journalistic career. (Honestly, as long as I get to work with words, I'll be happy.)
I’m really good at
Editing papers, baking sweets, listening, playing the clarinet and Pokemon (the video game).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a little bit weird. I also tend to burst into song at random.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have way too many favorite books to name. I love classic American lit; William Faulkner is my favorite author. I read a lot of YA fiction; coming of age is my favorite literary theme. I am currently writing a YA book of my own. I will read (and enjoy) nearly any fiction or informative literature. The exceptions: I HATE Hawthorne and Melville, most Russian literature seems dry to me (I do, however, have a soft spot for Nabokov), and Hemingway isn't exactly my favorite novelist, but I think his short stories are mostly brilliant. I also hate books that are extremely poorly written.

Movies I love: Anything with Audrey Hepburn, musical movies, movies based on comic books (especially Marvel), The Boondock Saints, Star Wars, stupid comedies like Superbad, Midnight in Paris, Silver Linings Playbook, The Perks of Being a Wallflower (It's almost as good as the book.)

TV shows I love (and I do, admittedly, watch too much TV these days): DOCTOR WHO HAS TAKEN OVER MY LIFE, Community, Archer, Sons of Anarchy, South Park, The Big Bang Theory, Degrassi (watched it since I was 12 and don't plan on stopping), Family Guy, American Horror Story, Skins (U.K. version), Reign

TV shows from the past I adore: Star Trek (TOS), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, That 70s Show, Gilmore Girls (the first 3 seasons), Everwood

My favorite story of all time in ANY medium? Peter Pan.
The six things I could never do without
1) My mom
2) Books
3) Ice cream
4) My dogs
5) Laughter
6) Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Literature, songs that should be playing during specific moments in life, the universe and all its possibilities, traveling, the stories in my head
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies with friends, reading a book, possibly at a concert
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me.
You should message me if
You have something interesting to say about yourself and possess a basic understanding of the English language. If you do not know the differences between "they're, there, and their" or "to, too, and two," please do not contact me. I do not mean to be a snob, but extremely poor grammar truly bothers me.
