About me

Occupation Student, thinker, reader, flaneur
Location the Pacific Northwest, United States
Introduction I'm a teenage girl (although that's not generally how I think of myself), and I like to read (obviously). I have so many undefined yearnings for...well, something undefined, but I suppose that's natural for the adolescent with multiple brain cells (I'm beginning to think there aren't enough of us). I used to go to a really great middle school, but now I have entered the realm of public high school, and it's quite a shock. Hoping to get to college as soon as possible. I used to want to be a farmer (when I was about five), and then I wanted to write fiction, and now I don't know really. Being a travel journalist might be interesting; I'm also interested in animal behavior, specifically birds because they're somewhat of an under-researched field. I just want to do all the things! I love history and science and music and literature and math, and want to do something that combines all of them. And New York. New York is a key ingredient. If you're still reading this, thanks. I hope you enjoy the blog. Follow if you feel so inclined.

Favorite Movies Pickpocket, Casablanca, Marx Brothers, Midnight in Paris, Downton Abbey (not really a movie, but still).... I'm still searching for the one movie that will be beautiful and sepia-toned and that I will fall in love with and watch over and over again. I want a book like this too; it's a vague quality that's hard to define.
