My self-summary
The first thing you should know about me is that music is a big part of my life. Not in the sense that I'm a musician, but more that I'm something of an audiophile. I consider myself a ska enthusiast, and I'm a geek about anything to do with mod and ska culture. Aside from that I've also been listening to a lot of psychobilly and rockabilly, and sometimes I listen to punk too.

Also I'm a big anime nerd. Wall scrolls, pair of cat-ears, a few cosplay outfits, the works >_>.

I shy and introverted and I'm kind of a wallflower at parties, but when people get to know me they often tell me that I'm sweet and a loyal friend. Whether or not that's true I'll leave you to judge :).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a 4th year Political Science major at UCSB, and after I graduate I hope to be a journalist of some kind. I firmly believe that reporters have a vital role in contributing to the functioning of a free society by acting as watchdogs and whistle-blowers against the individuals and organizations who run the world and make it what it is. I've been a staff writer and reporter for two different student newspapers and am currently writing for The Bottom Line, one of the campus news outlets, and soon I want to start applying for different newsroom internships. I love what I do ^_^

I enjoy getting lost in a good book every now and then. I've been known to enjoy just about anything from fantasy, to sci-fi, to books on political theory.

I'm also kind of a huge anime geek. I have a few cosplay outfits and want to try more, and to date I've done: America from Hetalia Axis Powers, Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!, Kamina from Gurren Lagann, and Karkat Vantas from Homestuck.
I’m really good at
Being a colossal dork. And being proud of it ^w^.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
1. Music
2. Anime
3. Friends
4. Games
5. Books
6. My iPod. I'm serious. I carry it with me almost wherever I go and I'm usually either listening to music or a good audiobook whenever I'm not doing anything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1. The world's problems: sexism, classism, racism, gender binary, homophobia, capitalism, growing social and economic inequality, corporate greed etc.
2. How and why society is so fucked up. Kind of the same as point (1) when you think about it but still.
3. Politics
4. Tattoos I'd like to have and save up for.
5. How and when I'm finally going to get a Vespa haha I kid.
6. Pending
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at home playing a game/listening to music, or at a bar or a show with a friend or two, depending on what's happening and who's free.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I also have Aspergers Syndrome. Diagnosed when I was 2. Soooo yeah, that's a thing >_>

Oh and one more thing: I sing songs from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado" and the "HMS Pinafore" in the shower. If that isn't the most private thing I'm willing to admit then I don't know what is haha.
You should message me if
After my last couple of relationships I've decided to enjoy being single and use it as an opportunity to try new things, meet new girls and see what's out there ^_^. So not really looking for anything too committed or serious yet =/ sorry.

But yeah message me if you're: chill, into good music, into games, enjoy talking about music/feminism/radical politics/society/philosophy/literature/whatever, down to hang out, not conservative or racist.

Also definitely message me if you're a ska/reggae/mod enthusiast as well, being a rude girl, punk, psychobilly girl, skinbyrd, mod, or otaku/anime geek is not necessary but will definitely earn ya bonus points ^_^.
