About me

Industry Student
Occupation Taking a stand
Location away from all this, United States
Introduction Hey everyone, I'm Scottish, reform Jewish, Texan, and among a whole bunch of other stuff, American. I've got a strong sense of all sides of my heritage. Soccer and track are what I do--in fall and spring, at least; otherwise I'm basically a potato. I love, love, love to write, read, and draw, and find drawing especially therapeutic; all I'd need on a desert island is a pencil and paper. I may have moved from my hometown Austin, and I might have left my favorite Brooklyn, but I'm still full of Southerner--and New Yorker--pride. (Thus, we named our pet cats Austin and Brooklyn. Sadly, they had to be given away.) Oh and yeah, I'm lactose-intolerant. So in case you were planning on getting me one of those awesome Harry and David gift basket ensembles, skip the milk chocolate.

Your superpower is that you smell like dandelions whenever someone lies. How will you maintain your secret identity?

That's an easy one. I will go to the house of the lady who BOUGHT ALL MY PERFUME at my yard sale, steal it all, and cover myself in it. Luckily, none of it smells like dandelions.
