My Nutshell

I won't beat around the bush.  I'm a nerd girl and I think that's awesome.  And considering that since we're veering ever closer to a homogenous nerd culture, I feel that straddling the contentious line between pretty, normal-looking chick and uber geek puts me ahead of the curve. 

One important thing to know about me is that I love to read, which is beyond an understatement.  My favorites are the classics, horror/paranormal fiction, and existentialist manifestos but I'll pretty much read anything -- cereal boxes, cosmetic ingredients, the FBI disclaimer at the beginning of movies, etc.  I would agree with Nietzche that "without music, life would be a mistake."  It is incomprehensible to me to not have my i-pod charged and ready to go.  My taste is eclectic -- very eclectic.  I have a little bit of everything and I am constantly searching for new stuff.  My music collection isn't quite epic but it's getting there. 

I'm also a foodie (a food enthusiast/geek/student/whatever) especially anything involving molecular gastronomy.  I'm such a foodie that the small amount of TV I watch is divided between The Food Network and The Cooking Channel, with Discovery and "Bones" re-runs sprinkled in for good measure.  Oh, and a healthy dose of trashy reality television.  I'm a big fan of horror films, even the shitty ones.  Other than that, I like foreign films, documentaries, and cerebral dramas, although I can appreciate a good bro-mance.  My friends consider me an authority on the Harry Potter series (mainly the books, not so much the movies -- I'm not too keen on most of them).  I used to play a couple of MMOs (Eve and WoW) but don't at the moment because money is tight and my laptop can't really run them anyway.  Finally, I'm immensely interested in (i.e. I have degrees in) psychology and the French language.  I speak french well -- not fluent yet but I'm working on it.

My blog is mostly a smattering of individual essays I write on various topics.  I'll be honest -- I'm a list-er.  I'll make a list about anything.  Occassionally, I'll post a recipe I've tried or invented myself but generally, a lot of what I write is just random thoughts on my life as it is now.  I'm told I come off as snarky and sarcastic (even bitchy at times) but usually, my friends get a good chuckle after reading one of my rants.  I'm young (23) and I suppose I've entered what they'd call a quarter-life crisis.  That being said, I like to muse about what I'm going to be when I grow up.  I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to novelist or international spy.

One last thing:  If I could have any superpower, I'd choose psychokinesis. 


OMG I loved Nausea and am enamored with Sartre anyway. I agree -- friends we should be.

My name is Jessica and I have my boring moments too.
You sound like a very deep and very smart girl. I am a nerdy girl as well. I added you to my friends list if you don't mind.
Thank you. Always nice to meet a fellow nerd girl. I added back.
You are the second person that love to make lists.
I really need to do but things just come at random to me.
Anyway, you wanna be friends?
Sure, I'll be friends with you. You've been added. :D
first, you should listen to a song by manhattan transfer called the java jive. in bohemia.
second, you should contemplate adding me :) s'il vous plait?
Mais bien sur, dahling! And I'll definitely check that song out. Added.
i have nothing witty to say, but I loved your friend ad. You're quirky and I added you.
thanks. Added you back. :D
We seem to have a little bit in common, I love shitty horror films and at 22 I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I'm also a former psych kid, a drop-out but it still holds my interest.
Personally I would chose telepathy as a superpower =)
Awesome. I don't think I could handle telepathy personally. I already have enough trouble slowing my mind down without other people's thoughts sliding around in there.

I added you. I hope you're cool with that. :D
You seem very interesting, and we share a few things in common. I'd like to get to know you better, if you'd like to be friends?
Gonna add you, think we got quite something in common, I've somehow wrote some informative thingy now as well, so we're even on infos ;-) Btw how about being a novelist writing about spies?

You know, in one game I am playing I am quite good at psychokinesis :P
hey! I changed my username and doing that I lost all my mutual friends ;-(, you'll need to readd me again, I should be in your friends of list.
Sorry for the hassle ;-)
