Birthdate:Sep 26
I'm in my mid-twenties, multinational, and multilingual third culture kid. I'm a trained biologist, a practicing translator, and a equitation rider in withdrawal. I obsess and makes lists of everything. I also occasionally freak out and personify the massive blues of suck by Dodos of Doom.

I love reading most anything, I write occasionally, I cannot control the grabby hands in the face of fanmixes, and if my mind were more open it'd fall out.

I don't bite. In fact, I may fawn over comments, be supportive of projects with the pompoms of encouragement (i.e. *\o/*) and Google-fu, and discuss things till the wee hours. There may be hugs. My friends' list is my reading list and I don't lock my entries, so do what you will with the friend button.

I have a science stick, my metaphors are crack, I occasionally write posts using icons, post photos and did (and won!) NaNoWriMo 2009 and NaNoWriMo 2010.
