"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:
-musicals
-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
-accents
-Proper animated Disney films
-Philosophy
-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...

Why do people keep asking if misha is dead??? Her profile is still in use, she has just stopped writing. I'm not saying she may have gone through something and I'm really sorry if that is true. If you read this misha i hope you are ok and please speak to us. Tell us if you ever plan on finishing writing your books or not.... Thanks. Hope your ok :)
