Our 20 year-old heroine. Bio major at the University of Puget Sound. Attempts to avoid teen angst/drama by overwhelming herself in as much work and as many ventures as possible. Snarky, outgoing, and attracted to individuals of the female persuasion. Enjoys cats.
If day to day pastimes, two sentence blurbs, fan-girling and the occasional slip of female rage don't sound like appealing reading material, then this journal isn't for you. ;)
