Howdy!

Hello.

I am a 23 year old misfit living in Ireland. Just finishing up (lol starting) my dissertation for my postgrad in European Studies at TCD. Yeah, its as useless of a degree as it sounds. The plan is to make it sound cool and important so I can get a job.

I haven't been back to the States in over a year. Its been fun. I go back for a month in September before I head back to Ireland for work. Hopefully. I'm a New England gal through and through, but I am perfectly happy across the puddle.

I've been on LJ for ages, but now that I'm out of Uni (finally) I plan on spending more time on fun internet persuits, and LJ is included. It will be nice not to have homework looming. But I might be delusional. I think I've seen movies of people wishing they were in school instead of working. Oh well, I'll learn.

I am dating an amazing German boy. I call him my communist boy because he's all East Berlin like. Its a lie. He's a total capitalist. I love him lots and occassionally gush. Come September we will no longer live in the same country and times will be tough, so I'm sure that will feature a little bit, though I'm not hugely into talking about my relationships in depth on the internet.

Random Facts:
-I just finished The Hunger Games trilogy in 3 days. Partly loved it, partly disappointed  by the last book. Totally addicted.
-I still can't speak in a fake Irish accent. This makes me sad because it means I can't trick the tourists who swarm my Uni. :(
-I play trumpet and sing broadway power ballads badly. :)
-I love to cook, but up until this year I was scared of it. I make a mean chicken parm with homemade sauce.
-I love romance novels and wrote my undergrad thesis on them.
-I know way too much about mental health policy in Bulgaria. Please dissertation, go away.
-I'm learning German in September.
-I am a Slytherin

Current Obsessions:
-Harry Potter (always)
-True Blood, Doctor Who, Top Gear, DS9, TOS, SGA, Northanger Abbey, Upstairs/Downstairs
-Movies. All movies. Ever. 
-Looking at pictures of saucy apartments. Those lucky, stylish people. My apartment just has creepy wallpaper and ugly turquoise paint on the walls.

The next 6 months will involve:
-Finishing dissertation (Aug 31)
-Being hungover from finishing dissertation (Sept 1-3)
-Moving out and going home to Cape Cod for a month (Sept)
-Working on building a website for myself and a blog for my mom. Meaning I'll have to remember how to code. :P Been a while.
-Moving back to Ireland/Getting a job/Finding apartment
-Potentially following the boyfriend to Germany

I'm just looking for some more cool cats to hang out on LJ with. :)

I look forward to meeting you all! Please just leave a comment here or on my friends-only entry and I'll friend you back!
