About Me:
I'm a 21 year old college student. I'm majoring in History and Classics and minoring in Theology and Psychology. I don't know what I want to do with my life and that scares the hell out of me. I'm thinking about teaching though. I live in Pittsburgh; I'm from a small town just north of the city. I'm a huge nerd. My television shows and fandoms are pretty much my life, and most of what this blog is going to be about. My political views are moderate and complicated and I'd rather not go into them on the internet unless absolutely necessary. Politics have no place in fandom. I believe in God, was raised Roman Catholic, and still mostly identify as Roman Catholic, although my religious views have become more pluralistic over time and as I've learned more about different faiths and I really have come into a lot of my own views rather than adopting pre-decided and organized opinions. I guess you can say I've done soul searching and thought deeply and critically about the Bible, other religions, and science to come these conclusions rather than just taking what an organized religion tells me to think. My close family members, true friends, boyfriend, and my dog and other pets I know mean the world to me. That's like a total of 12 people to be honest, everyone else I don't really care that much about. Although, I do care about all animals. I have trouble trusting people and opening up to people, I keep a good portion of myself hidden from others. It takes me awhile to consider someone a true friend, but once I do, you're my friend for life, through thick and thin, and I'll be there for you no matter what. I'm shy, self-conscious, and have serious self-esteem issues. I'm also incredibly awkward.

History, reading and learning about it, watching things about it, anything. Specifically ancient and medieval history.
Reading fanfiction, watching fanvideos, my tumblr, getting into discussions about my fandoms, writing about them, like essays and such, looking at other people's gifs, icons, and fanart, though I don't make any cool stuff like that myself.
Writing, both fan fiction and original fiction. I wish I was better at it. I'll be posting my pathetic attempts here.
