"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."- Martin Luther King, Jr. "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in the possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." - Jane Austen (my idol) I am, in a word, an oxymoron. I'm a major feminist, but I also believe in chivalry. I am considered very book smart, but I tend to have the common sense of a 21-year-old male. As one of my good friend's brother put it, "She is a tomboy, but she actually cares what she looks like." I don't like to wear too much makeup, but I will wear masks in other ways. I don't trust very easily, and I don't bestow my trust on very many people. However, I also am slightly naive and believe in the beauty of ignorance. My favorite color, obviously, is cerulean, and my favorite flowers are tiger lilies and roses. I don't believe in coincidences. I love to argue for the sake of debate, but I usually am only articulate on paper. Most of my "debates" end up being face-making contests. My favorite words include, but are not limited to, kumquat, kiwi, chiaroscuro, cochebombas, serenade, and battle royale I am considered odd by acquaintances and loyal by my friends. They seem to put up with my strange thought processes very well... I suppose they will do. I am very insecure and shy, though with my friends I am normally the second-loudest or the actual loudest person of the entire group. I am soft spoken and often say things that people do not hear except for two or three of my very best friends. It's actually an experiment that I'm working on. I am very rational but I can also be very silly at times. Laughing is one of my favorite pastimes, and when I grow older I want the wrinkles on my face to be from smiling and laughing instead of frowning and crying. I listen to '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s music more than anything else, but I particularly adore Switchfoot. I also recommend Shane & Shane. They're AMAZING! Other than that, I love to make conversation, even though I'm shy, so post anything on my wall and I will answer! Oh and this is the link to my fanfiction profile below.
