About Me

My name's Melissa. I'm a twenty-something living with my parents (and still struggling to leave the nest despite having a job and 1/2 of a Master's degree) in the great state of New Jersey. 

My chief partner-in-crime is my awesome boyfriend fiance Matt. But really I'm lucky to have a handful of amazing friends who constantly introduce me to fascinating new things. 

My blog is a chronicle of the things I see, hear, taste, and touch, as well as a place to vent and worry and rejoice and obsess and all that good stuff.  

I am:
  • a geeky girl who loves comic books, Lord of the Rings, and zombie movies
  • a Youth Services Assistant at a public library
  • a soon-to-be Master of Information (Seriously! I’m in grad school for my Masters in Library and Information Science)
  • a first-generation Filipino-American
I love:
  • Young Adult Literature
  • Cardigans
  • Haircuts
  • Making lists
  • Anything Joss Whedon has ever touched
I hate:
  • Bugs
  • Passive-aggressiveness
  • Sitting in traffic
