My name is Brittany. I’m 25. I am a broke college student, always. I’m pretty funny, but I’m not sorry if you don’t get my sense of humor. I answer advice for those with problems of the heart. Not literal physical problems, though. I am not a doctor.
I love music. Like, a lot. I have excellent taste, and I will inflict it upon you via this tag.
A list of music I find superior, in no particular order:
- Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, The Clash, FRIENDS, Phantom Planet, Bob fucking Dylan, Cat Stevens, Best Coast, JJAMZ, The Shins, Wolf Parade, Elvis, The Clash, Florence + The Machine, The Beach Boys, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Chuck Berry, The Turtles, The Who, The Doors, The Zombies, Radiohead, Queen, Phoenix, N.E.R.D., Mumford + Sons, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Like, Leonard Cohen, Jimmy Eat World, DMX, Brand New, Crosby Still Nash (& Young), The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and many more.
I do a really poor job at keeping up with tv shows. I don’t really watch television, unless it’s CNN, MSNBC, or the occasional documentary. I liked FRIENDS a lot. National Geographic is pretty cool. As a history major, I regularly go off about the inaccuracies on the History Channel in my head. Oh, I enjoy Girls.
History major. PoliSci minor. Which means I actually like politics. A lot. I am a far-left liberal. If that bothers you, you should probably not follow me.
I don’t tolerate racism or homophobia. I support the LGBT community a whole lot. I think human beings of any color, ethnicity, or background are pretty neat. Definitely still human. Leave your backwoods bullshit at the door, please.
I was born near LA, grew up in the Midwest long enough to pick up the accent. I now live in Southern California. I’ve got a Midwestern heart, Midwestern politeness, and liberal, west-coast views.
I like to write. I’ll eventually finish a fucking novel.
My icon is pretty much always me. Right now it’s me as a toddler. I am not currently a toddler. I do not own a strawberry outfit anymore. I gave it to Katy Perry when I turned four. She wears it well. This is my face.
Things I love, in no particular order:
- Ernest Hemingway, architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, travel, (modern) Rome, history, politics, physical maps, political maps, old maps, good music, pretty pictures, art, Robert Mapplethorpe, STL, baseball, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Sefer Reis, The St. Louis Cardinals, hockey, tennis, Roger Federer, really fucking great books, Mark Twain, dystopian novels, Aldous Huxley. Anthropology. Seriously. Especially Native American cultural anthropology, and (on the physical end) the study of human evolution.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
