My Bio
Pangolins are the best animal ever, seriously.

I love books. Particularly ones by Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, Aldous Huxley, John Green, Malcolm Gladwell, and various others.

I'm also really into movies. I think right now my top 5 (in no particular order) are Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Let the Right One In, The Lives of Others, American Beauty, and Yi Yi. If you haven't heard of the Criterion Collection, please remedy that immediately.

I can be a music snob. A good rule of thumb: if Pitchfork liked it, then I probably would too. My favorite bands are Radiohead, The National, and The Flaming Lips.

I may as well cover TV while I'm at it. Six Feet Under is the greatest television program ever created, anyone who argues is wrong.

Current Residence: Come on, feel the Illinoise!
Favourite genre of music: space rock, indie, rock, punk, post-punk, baroque pop, classical, electronic, shoegaze
Favourite photographer: Gregory Crewdson
Favourite style of art: Romanticism
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: 30GB iPod Video
Shell of choice: pooka
Wallpaper of choice: The Dark Knight
Skin of choice: I'm going to be a pretentious douche like everyone else and say "MINE IS NICE LOL"

Hoy mi amigo y yo vamos a Chicago para ver arte. Siempre vamos al museo porque estamos entendidos y a mí me gusta estar pretenciosa. Jajaja. Quiero comer sushi también cuando estamos en Chicago, pero mi amigo no quiere pagar comida cara. :( Por último, tengo una meta nueva: ser crítico de comida y vino. Vivo con clase, sí? (Quería escribir algo en español porque escucho Enrique Iglesias)

Yikes. I haven't written here in almost a year. It's so easy to forget about DeviantArt. I feel like writing about college... University of Wisconsin-Madison: ACCEPTED. University of California-Los Angeles: REJECTED. New York University: ACCEPTED. Northwestern University: REJECTED. Carnegie Mellon University: PRIORITY WAITLISTED. University of Southern California: REJECTED, but appealing the decision. :( Can someone please explain to me HOW I got into NYU (the best film school in the country) but didn't get into USC (the other best film school in the country)? I started writing my USC supplements and essays one year ago. I wanted to go
