When asked, my friends define me as someone with “an unbridled passion for social justice that can only be compared to one thousand suns…. Also you know how to make brownies in the microwave and therefore you are a wizard.”

I think they forgot to mention my love for cats (and animals in general) as well as my extensive knowledge of Harry Potter.

My best impulse purchase was a purple silk robe with lace on the edges. When I wear it I feel like I’m supposed to be back in the 1940s working as a Mob boss and/or lounge singer.

Three things make me cry without fail: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the ending of RENT, and this video of a cat comforting her kitten during a nightmare.
