I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I’ve been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I’ve also been known to fly into a rage if things don’t go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone’s nose on the TTC one time. I’m an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
