"Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee." ~Stephanie Piro

Hi :) I'm Misha. I'm a 22-year-old girl who could probably read before she could walk. Here is some arbitrary and completely useless information about me:

I get emotionally attached to random inanimate objects, like coffee mugs.

I love gutsy funny people like Tom Lehrer, George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Eddie Izzard, and Lenny Bruce.

I suffer from Katsaridaphobia, which is just a fancy way of saying that I have a complete meltdown whenever a cockroach is near. What’s that you’re saying? “They’re harmless”? Pfft. That’s what they WANT you to think.

I'm a lifelong bibliophile, cinephile, and shameless geek.

I don't believe in censorship.

I'm currently studying for a Bachelors in Creative Writing, even though my true dream is to be obscenely rich and famous. I think I'm getting there.

Don't take me too seriously. I don't.

A few miscellaneous things I dig:
-Anything steampunk
-History (especially the bits of it that are just batshit insane)
-the Victorian era
-Vintage photographs
-Dr. Martens
-Old movies
-castles. Real ones. (Neuschwanstein in Bavaria is my favorite. Seriously. Google it. It's gorgeous.)
-Douglas Adams
-Proper animated Disney films
-Polar bears

I’m pretty much all over the place. Half of the time I have no idea what I'm doing.

If you read through all this useless information I commend you, and wish you fun, adventure, and really wild things. Embrace the ridiculous, spread the strange.

I have a blog. Go check it out if you feel like wasting a few minutes of your life: http://coffeeandstrange.blogspot.com/

Follow me on Twitter! When I'm famous you'll be glad you did it. Promise.

And take a tumble with me.

Description: "If the world can’t handle the truth, give them a spectacular lie." Bitch. That’s what they called me at my old school. I disagree: I’m just brutally honest, that’s all. Some people don’t like honesty. Exhibit A: Matthew’s family. None of them wa...

you  are the reason i'm now on wattpad so i wanted to thank you for that, i love you for writing soooooooooooo many amazing  chough...chough-still unfinished- chough...books so if you update one of them ever again, which i hope, you will, soon, like right now, not pressuring, just stating a fact, i think i may actually spontaneously combust, that's how happy i'd be,  it'd be such a shame if you stopped writhing, so i'm gonna be outrageous and say that even if i never get to read another page you wrote -no matter how crushed that would make me- i'm gonna hope that somewhere you have, like a handwritten copy or somthing, so that, in case i somehow turn into a witch i can summon it
Hi! I just wanted to say you're an amazing writer and I love your story 'faking it'. I have no idea if you still use wattpad (since you've been inactive for quite a while now!) but I just wanted to say that you are a beautiful writer and I would love it if you kept putting your beautiful content out in the world!x

Misha we all miss you and I'm not sure if it's just me but I'm kind of worried about whether you're alright. You've been MIA for a year now! 
      Well, I won't ask you to update your stories. Even though they are absolutely smashing and inspire me to the max. But, please do come back and tell us what you've been up to. Don't be a stranger!
