Marisa. Female. Thirty. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Underachiever.

Writes zines. Loves cats. Adores snail mail, especially in the form of postcards. Enjoys D&D and MTG. Listens to lots of indiepop, riotgrrrl/queercore, jazz standards, show tunes, and Japanese pop/rock. Collects Blythe dolls and likes dolls in general. Likes girly things, but not really girly by nature. Reads plenty of books, especially those in the YA, Fantasy and Sci-Fi categories. Obsessed with myth, fairy tales, and folklore. And intersectional feminism. Works in a bookstore. Still working on that degree, mainly because I keep refusing to write my final paper, which is really the only thing I need to graduate. Relates to Morita (from Honey & Clover) in this sense. Finally graduated, but now thinking of going back to school. Currently a graduate student. Received my MA in English Studies (which is really what my school classifies Comparative Literature as). Also makes a lot of mix-CDs, and spends TV time watching re-runs of Buffy, Firefly, Avatar: the Last Airbender, or downloaded Japanese variety programmes.

Almost all entries are friends-locked, except for rants on books/movies and certain fandom stuff. RL stuff and obsessions on various fandoms (usually Glee, BtVS, BUMP OF CHICKEN, flumpool, and Arashi) will be f-locked. Now and then I talk about my one true love - myth/folklore/fairy tales - and/or post scans of magazines (whatever I'm interested in), or post mp3s/playlists, or translations, mostly of BUMP OF CHICKEN lyrics or Aida Mitsuo's poetry. except for general lists that point to posts I made elsewhere, since I also have a penchant of starting many blogs and updating them randomly. Personal posts will now mostly be in Dreamwidth, although if I remember I will cross-post here.

Feel free to add me if you want to, and comment if you'd like me to add you back.
