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.
