Hello there! Alyssa, here, trying to figure out what the heck to say that would make me seem interesting. I suppose I could start by saying I love fantasy, and anything dream-related. Like, sleeping dreams. They're fascinating! I obviously love to write, otherwise I wouldn't be doing NaNo for, what, the fifth time? Wow, I can't believe this will be my fifth year! Ahem.
I wish I had a kitten, but alas, my parents have a cat who is old and fat and furry. His name is Amos, but we call him Moose. Hurm...I'm a senior in college, studying Television and Film Arts. I hope to someday be a writer and a film-maker, and possibly do something with photography, interior design, and fashion. I have an Etsy shop, and I am very into arts and crafts and designing jewelry. Sometimes I letterbox.
I hail from the not-so-wondrous state of New York, where, on occasion, I enjoy a good cup of Earl Grey tea with milk and honey because coffee just doesn't feel the same, but I drink it anyway on the mornings I have cooking class at school. Yes, be jealous of my cooking class! Or not.
I work as a writing tutor in the English department on campus. I rarely get anyone to tutor, so I spend a good portion of my time writing letters to my pen pals. Yes, by hand, which I then fold, seal in an envelope, and mail using *gasp* the mailbox! If you'd like to be pen pals or creative buddies, send me a NaNo message! I'm always open to making new friends! =)
