My self-summary
Pro-tip: Seduce me with film references. The nerdier, the better.
RANDOM START TO PROFILE: I'm super shy about messaging people first, but I'm an awesome conversationalist. I DARE you to message me and make me think about something differently.
I'm mostly looking for friends, but if you'rea gal who I hit it off with, there might be room for more.
I'm a 22 year old girl, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I enjoy music, explosions, weapons, cars, dancing, anything vintage, riding the subway, and visiting downtown. I'm also INFJ.
Anything else, ask away!
I'm an obsessive tumblr...er...So, go check out my blog, if you so please, and follow it if the whim hits you.
ALSO: I don't think my profile states this well enough, but my two great loves in the world are MUSIC and READING! I am a classically trained opera singer, and I go swing dancing a lot. I also go to a freakin Great Books School...do the math.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated Shimer College yay!!
I work for a school as an after-care provider, and I am currently looking for a second job, probably as a paralegal.
I will be attending law school next year then I will be a prosecutor (hopefully).
I am also a cosplay model in my free time.
I’m really good at
Anything musical! I play bass and sing in three bands. I also play guitar, piano, trombone, harmonica, and I write my own music.
If you're curious as to the stuff I do, look up my username, kougraducky, on youtube.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think most people notice my smile. It's slightly goofy and very teethy...Which my brother says is a good thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite books would be anything by Heinlen, Pratchett, the occasional BritLit, and any historical book you can throw at me.
I really enjoy old movies, like It's a Wonderful Life and The Glenn Miller Story. I also love Quinten Tarentino. And any Hitchcock is a plus.
My favourite song is La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong. That said, I typically listen to a mixture of swing, broadway, and pop that most people don't understand.
Oh, Doctor Who...How I love thee. And anything Joss Whedon.
Food. Ah. How I love thee. Throw anything at me with cheese, and we're good. Or Chocolate. Mmmmm...I'm a cook, so I love trying new stuff ^^
Is there an anime section? Can I put that?
I watch OHSHC, The Melancholy of Haruhi, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, omg too many animes just ask Jeeeez
Six things I could never do without
A Book.
My iPod
A guitar
Good food
A Good friend
I spend a lot of time thinking about
many things. I think it's mainly what my future will be like. Will I meet the right person? Will I be a successful lawyer? Will my music career go to Broadway? It's all very deep and philosophical lol.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about history. Recently, I've been pondering about Alexander Hamilton and wanting to meet him. He was pretty badass.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have gender identification issues...I'd think the best thing I can describe it as is...fluid. Some days, I feel very feminine...other days I feel very masculine.
Also, one of my two middle names is Tiberius...and yes, that and Amanda (my first name) are both Star Trek references. I prefer to just go by Manda.
You should message me if
You're mature and are willing to converse like a real person, although the occasional flirt would not be unappreciated.
The two of us
