My self-summary
Student, writer, traveller. I've spent the last few years moving around a lot (various places in the UK, Halifax for school, etc) and travelling (Europe, mostly), and a result am quite out of touch with the social scene in Victoria even though it's my hometown. I'd like to fix that.

I read more than is probably healthy, I love poetry, theatre, and comedy, and I'm fascinated with basically all pop culture. I don't take many things seriously and especially not myself, except for the things I do.
What I’m doing with my life
Finally getting around to working towards a BA in English (probably? Who knows?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short and I've got a sharp tongue.

Movies: Withnail & I, Amelie, The History Boys, Brick, Empire Records, Labyrinth, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Submarine, In Bruges, and I love Wes Anderson and Studio Ghibli.

On a typical Friday night I am
At the moment? Probably either writing another bloody essay or attempting to pretend that that isn't what I really should be doing.
