Oh hey there!
(previously) DiplomatsSon here, coming back to visit amirite after a year of leave.
Some stuff about me:
- I'm a musician. I'm currently first chair in my orchestra and the primary bassist in my jazz band. I plan on majoring in double bass performance in college, although I'm torn between whether I want to focus on jazz or classical.
- I also play almost anything else with strings. Cello, Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Ukulele, Viola, Violin... etc. I can play the basics of trumpet and trombone. Also, I'm working on Sitar and a bit of percussion.
- I'm in high school, but not for much longer (thank God)
- Oh yeah. I love coffee, generally black. When I'm waking up at 5:30 every day, it's pretty much necessary.
- Shakespeare is the best. Period. My favorite is Macbeth (I've actually scansioned the entire play) although I adore Othello, The Tempest, King Lear, Henry VI Part 2, Cymbeline... Well... I love everything, to be honest :) I can give you a Shakespeare quote for any problems you may be having.
- Besides Shakespeare, I love literature in general. Some of my favorite novels are Fahrenheit 451, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Catcher in the Rye, The Bell Jar, etc.
- I'm pretty tall for a female. It's hard to buy pants.
- Not to toot my own horn, but I'm sort of awesome at Minesweeper. Toot toot.

- I thinks beards and sweaters are sexy. Combine the two and I can't handle myself.
- I've been proclaimed "honorary ladybro" so that's cool.
- Dibs on Aaron Tveit, k?
- With certain things (such as Aaron Tveit) I am so capable of fangirling, it's ridiculous.
I love to talk Shakespeare and music theory. Come say sup!
