I'm awful at witty intros but really good at lists. So have a list?

  • I'm Jaime, and I'm 27.
  • I live in New Jersey, but four days a week, I play Planes Trains & Automobiles (well, okay. Buses, cars, and subways) to New York City, because...
  • ...I'm a real-life Ravenclaw almost-third-year school psych PhD student. I do ALL THE HOMEWORK.
  • This means that if you see me in chat, I'm avoiding either homework or my dissertation proposal and you should shame me into working on it.
  • When I'm not commuting, sleeping, studying, or here, I'm probably at the gym or house-hunting with my fiance.
  • If it weren't for Mad Men and The Big Bang Theory, I would never watch TV.
  • My list of musical loves includes Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, & Fleetwood Mac.
  • I like knitting, my cranky cockatiel, statistics, and all things Disney. I do not like my marathon commute, heights, or anything with pumpkin in it.

I'm a slacker with only two characters, even though I'll have been here for a full RL year (holy cow) this July:

Isabelle Atkinson
Ravenclaw, rising 6th year, sixteen
Super-nerd. Studying machine. American transfer from the Big Apple. Divorced parents. At Hogwarts since 4th year. Prefect & Dueling Captain, '72-'73 term. Anxious and insecure, but reasonably friendly. Doesn't sleep much, so she might be a little twitchy. Likes Alex Valentine and Transfiguration.

Daphne Bennett
Gryffindor, rising 4th year, fourteen
Stubborn, mischievous, and deaf. Classes don't interest her in the least (usually) so she can't be bothered to try (usually). Typically found cutting class, passing notes, or tuning people out. Fumbling Hospital Wing assistant. Huge fan of low expectations and big adventures.

That wasn't too hard, was it? Also lists. <3

And 'might be a little twitchy'. I don't think I've ever seen her twitchy. -learned something new-

Hey bff heyyy.

I'll always be your sidekick, just in your mind though because I'm so not. I'm looking forward to our serious thread. You can start it whenever <3 ;)

Yay Disney and Big Bang Theory! I like the pumpkin cheesecake blizzard thing Culver's has, but other than that I completely agree with you.

Calla and Daphne have to hang out, don't forget!

HOMG COMMUTE COMMUTE. I feel the pain. Or the adventure. You never know when the bus will finally show up. But at least we get our reading done?

Also ilu. Even if Sands doesn't show it.

And eeee! Yay Hoggies class of Summer '11!

Lady Gaga, BBT, and Disney. Yes!

Statistics, though, I can't agree with. It makes me want to curl up in a corner and cry. Haha.

Knitting!! I'm obsessed with making Harry Potter stuff. I made two house scarves. I eventually want to make Mrs. Weasley's sweater. Because I AM Mrs. Weasley in the flesh. She is my fav character. I have so many of her qualities.

@AVal - *twitches*
@Sidekick - I'm not starting that thread. YOUR TURN, I LOVE YOU, BYE.
@Calla - Even in a blizzard. No pumpkin. But thread yes.
@Scott - *brofists* Bros for life.
@Anna - Less reading, more sleeping. And pfft, by the end of summer, Sandsy will love Izzy. Everybody loves Izzy. Eventually. (ilu)
@Es - House Mom, I love you and your DIY prowess. Rawr.
@Meghan - But...doing stats sort of makes me feel like I belong on BBT. ;)
@Sev - House scarves! I've been knitting for over a decade and I still haven't made myself a house scarf. True story.
@Ember - Only if we can find turtles and a musical crab to sing "Kiss the Girl."

it's very difficult for me to stay out of caps, i'm so excited
(and i just can't hide it)

Disney, man. BBT.

I can't believe we've soon been here a year.
What game shall we play today,
how about the one where you don't get your way?

BIG SPOON. I know Tom Petty is on tour. It kills me that I am missing him. I saw him & the Heartbreakers last summer on the Mojo tour and they were amazing. Learning to Fly live was worth the price of admission. It's my favorite.

EVE EVE EVE. <3 Bon Jovi for sure. Also Bowie. And Disney and BBT and I can't believe it's been a whole year almost. It feels longer sometimes, but maybe that's just grad school messin' with my head.

You know, I don't think I've ever RP'd with Iz. That's sad.

That should change.

Also, yay for educators! Although I don't think I'll ever get my PhD. Although spending more time in NYC sounds like fun, as long as I don't have to do a loooong commute.

And I still ship Iz/Chase. Always. Because Degrassi says it's meant to be.

Kell. This totally needs to change. They're at camp together all summer, we need to find something for them to do. Rightnow. <3

Wooo for teachers! No, don't get your PhD, not unless you really, really, REALLY want it, because it eats a little of your soul.

Ohhhh the Chasabelle. But Kell, the Izzentine. *swoons*

(Fun fact? I didn't watch Degrassi until after I picked Iz's face claim, and now when I watch it, I yell at Holly J and her questionable choices. /unhinged)
