An Introduction

PROFILE

  • Slytherclaw.

  • Political Liberal.

  • Naturalistic Pantheist.

  • Heteroromantic Asexual.

  • Socially Androgynous Female INTJ.

  • Pre-Law International Studies Major (focus on East Asia).


  • Wit and substance are the building blocks of my life. Freedom/liberty and knowledge/truth are my guiding values. I embrace my nerdiness and bibliophilia. You should know I am intolerant of intolerance.

    I am a cultural mutt: first generation American, second generation South American-European (Italian-Argentine and German-Colombian). More claims to diversity: I was raised in an immigrant community that is pretty much a microcosm of Iberoamerica; lusophone culture is second nature to me. Self-proclaimed Anglophile. Had plenty of exposure to East Asia in boarding school due to housemates and time spent in Japan. Raised bilingual (Spanish as my heritage tongue) and currently studying Japanese to fulfill my ambitions of multilingualism.

    I spend entirely too much time on internet, but in my defense, I love Wikipedia. I procrastinate immediately, I never put it off.

    Siempre acuerdate que eres único, como todos los demás. Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

    Lo más que estudiás, lo más que aprendés. Lo más que aprendés, lo más que sabés. Lo más que sabés, lo más que te olvidás. Lo más que te olvidás, lo menos que sabés. The more you study, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you know. The more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know.
