I figured I'd better get back into blogging on a regular basis. (Yeah, I know some people would have done this ten days ago; I was a little busy.)
I'm Laura. I write. Well, actually, I mainly bitch about a lot of things (mostly work-related), but that's only when I don't have a book to fuel my rage and I can take a lot of my anger out there. For fiction, I write about snarky teenagers in fantastical situations and the occasional introspective realistic short story about snarky teenagers. Otherwise, I write about books. Mostly reviewing them for my own purposes and just to geek out.
What do I geek out about? Aside from books, I like anime- and you will be hearing a lot about a particular series in the next few months-; I like movies; I like music of all kinds, with a worrying propensity for commercialized pop. I watch children's television, or at least the smart shows. (Before anyone asks, yes I watch ponies.) I've just begun reading Western comics, and I have a massive collection of manga. Aside from the geeking out, I bake and cross-stitch.
Last year, I managed to meet one of my all-time favorite authors and got to see another one. This year marks my fifteenth year in my two oldest fandoms (both of which are marking their respective 20th anniversaries). I'm hoping that this year will be a lot better and for me to get out of my self-imposed shell a little more.
So. Let's go then.
