I don't want to seem like a sobbing nostalgic, but here goes: I miss the old amirite.net dearly! I miss having legendary users who were active, and I miss when posts on the homepage easily got scores of 500, and when the POTDs were good, and when I actually used the homepage button, and when there were inside jokes (Tia, are you there?), and when the users were super funny, and I miss when I actually had the motivation to makes posts and when just anything couldn't get onto the homepage.
I'll be honest, there are some good days, so perhaps that is why I haven't let. I've really enjoyed this site, and I don't want to quit on it.
**EDIT: I think I've decided to leave. I don't know if it's for good. May drop in from time to time. I joined this site when I was a wee 16 year old in '11, so it will always be a good memory from my teenage years.
Resume Old About Me:
I loved amirite from the moment I discovered it by accident. How did I do that, you ask? I was searching something on Google, a witty quote came up, I clicked on it, and it turned out to be an amirite post! I regret that I don't remember what the post was--the first amirite post I ever read.
Here's my POTD! http://amirite.net/726551
I like to read and write. I've written some fiction novels, and I am always writing or editing something. I'm a long cry from perfect, though (very long cry, I feel at times).
My favorite (though flawed) book series since '08 is The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, mostly because of intricate characterization. The movie was awful, but at least there was no surge of fangirls. I never got into Harry Potter, and I hated the Hunger Games Trilogy. I am trying to expand my fantasy horizons (any suggestions?). As for classics, I loved Great Expectations, Julius Caesar, Tess of the D' Urbervilles, and Antigone. I thoroughly enjoyed the modern tragedy, The Pillowman. Right now I'm reading Paradiso by Dante (I'm taking an entire class on him). I much preferred Dante's Inferno.
I like learning things, especially human body-wise. You'll find me talking about books, history, biology, and social issues.
I really only watch TV during the summer and my favorite show is Jeopardy. I love trivia and Alex Trebek. I also love the Discovery Fit and Health Channel . My favorite TV series are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Sherlock, and LOST. I guess Vampire Diaries and Legend of Korra, too.
I make almost no time to discover recent music, and I despise most "throw your hands up on the dancefloor" pop. I grew up listening to Celine Dion and Phil Collins, and still enjoy that kind of music. My Pandora stations are: 60s, Elton John, Opera, Enya, Rob Thomas, Bryan Adams, No Doubt, Paramore, Alicia Keys, Jewel, Pop Rock, Celine Dion, and Lite Rock and Pop Hits. I tend to hate rap because of its profane, shallow, and degrading nature.
I'm a classical singer. That means I sing art songs, oratorio, and opera. I'm working on a Debussy art song right now: "Harmonie Du Soir" and am in a Women's Choir. I love it. The voice is a remarkable instrument (check out Barbara Bonney, my favorite opera singer). I sight-sing, know music theory, and play basic piano. I like musical theater, too. Les Mis and The Phantom of the Opera are my favorites.
I am currently a pre-med student with a Creative Writing major (help!).
I like to be objective. I defend things that have been criticized without warrant. I am not a particularly "funny" user, but I like making comments of substance. Uninformed opinions bother me, and I'm always open for discussion of interesting facts.
And that's about it for my About Me. Do message me.
My life and ambitions.
Doctor/writer who sings opera behind closed doors.
The things I could never live without.
Books and music.
In my free time I like to...
Read, write, sing, research stuff, watch all sorts of informative Youtube videos.

"Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ― George Orwell
"When a singer truly feels and experiences what the music is all about, the words will automatically ring true.” – Monserrat Caballe
"If you insist on disavowing that which is ugly about what you do, you will never learn from your mistakes." --Cassandra Clare.
