That is me right there. ;)

  • Writing poems on paper, essays-turned-blog-posts on OneNote & stories in my head. The scenes I dream up fuel fanvidding, another interest.
  • Love to listen to people's their take on the world & life. It's a fascination with diversity & culture & life experiences…fueled by curiosity.
  • My imagination has a tendency to run wild.
  • I participate in causes that I’ve been made aware of & believe in. I plan on volunteering forever. Bleeding heart for environmental degradation, injustice, animal rights & poor healthcare.
  • Free-spirited & open-minded. Read: liberated.
  • Pretty mellow. Optimism & looking on the bright side all the way. Epitome of the “happy kid" even in my 20s.
  • I can talk/lobby your ear if needed, BUT I don’t believe in forcing my beliefs/opinions on others. :) But I may argue like crazy. Also, I’d rather be a hands-on in activism.
  • I like taking pictures for the memories or to capture something beautiful/perplexing/striking. I’m a visual person.
  • Geek-slash-bookworm. Shelves bursting w/ books. A regular at bookstores/secondhand bookshops. Loves technology & sci-fi. Result: Kindle.
  • Music is inspiration, rejuvenation, an outlet, a friend, a beautiful thing… Open to all types of music, although my preferences are alt/folk/indie rock & pop punk. Usually it’s for the beat/tune 1st, then lyrical appreciation. But in some cases I love a song b/c the lyrics are poetry, then I begin to like the music.
  • Oh yeah, love history and I’m a former vegetarian (5 years). I eat fish now, so that makes me a pescetarian (sp? is that even the right term?), but planning to go back to veggies soon.
  • Hypocrisy irks me. :/ So I try to keep myself in check as well.
