Hi. My name is Marina, and you're probably cooler than me. I know we don't know each other very well, but that's pretty much how i relate to the world, so i just thought i'd get that out of the way while our relationship is still new. A significant portion of my life revolves around my love for pizza. That's about all you need to know, but if you're still curious, please continue.

    Aside from being painfully uncool and really loving pizza, i am also 22 years old and i live in Florida. I semi-recently graduated from college with a bachelor of fine arts degree and am currently in the process of... finding myself. Spiritually. Or something. I am primarily a painter, but i don't like to pin it down. I do a lot of photography for fun.

    I'm pretty big on pop culture. I have a habit of relating everything back to certain movies and tv shows and quoting them excessively, a habit which brings me much delight but could possibly annoy, confuse, or alienate others. I wonder if i'm going to die alone! I adore Harry Potter and find the books to be magical, which is funny because they're about magic. I grew up loving Star Wars, but became exponentially more obsessed upon the release of the prequels. I generally become enamored with things, people, tv shows, movies, and books far too easily and far too often.

    Here are some more fun (read: useless) lists of things i like!
Music: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Ben Folds (and the Five), Sleater-Kinney, Mirah, The Fiery Furnaces, Radiohead, Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and lots and lots of other random stuff.
