You've mananged to stumble upon the Asylum, now with 42% more madness. Welcome, and good for you! I'm sushimustwrite, your tour guide for today. Allow me to give you a brief tour of the madness just so you don't have to dive in clueless. (Don't worry; quite a few of these people did. They're still alive and well.)
About The Asylum
The Asylum, as you no doubt figured out by now, is where I ramble about my life and other sundries. At the moment it is mostly public; the only entries that are locked by default are entries containing my fiction and those that I don't want random people from my life stumbling upon.
I post fairly often, and many of my entries are, according to me, pointless drivel of no true literary value. You may find yourself skimming stuff, and that's okay. I should probably have my own little Livejournal network like some of my friends have--one journal for "what I did today" stuff, one for quizzes and memes, one for pseudo-philosophical stuff, et cetera. Instead, I choose to lump everything together (sometimes in one entry!) because untangling my brain is like trying to pick out each individual noodle from a bowl. I can't apologise for that.
I can't apologise for who I am, either. So if you're easily offended, sane, closed-minded, humourless, or too into mainstream society to look elsewhere for fun, this might not be the place for you. Some have found out the hard way; I'm being nice and letting you know now.
With that out of the way, I promise I'm not as mean as I sounded in that previous paragraph. Feel feel to add me or remove me from your friends list at will (yay drama-free friending and defriending!); I won't get offended if you add or remove me without (gasp) asking my permission. If we have something in common and you have something interesting to say, I'll likely add you back. As mentioned earlier, most of my entries are public, so you're not missing much if you're not on my friends list.
About the Inhabitant
I'm a college student studying mathematics. For most people this means I'm a genius or clinically insane, usually both thanks to the inclusive or. For me it means I'm pursuing a passion. I'm also considering minors in French and astrophysics, but only time will tell.
I love languages and grammar. I've studied French, Spanish, and Latin at some point in my life, and while I love all three, French holds a special place in my heart. Grammar is so precise, so exact, even with the exceptions and the colloquialisms. No matter the exceptions, there are still basic rules in any language that ensures that you can be understood by a speaker of that language. This is the beauty of language.
Writing is yet another passion of mine. I've written for almost my entire life, and I'm at the point where I have to decide whether to take my writing or other pursuits like math more seriously. I've also participated in National Novel Writing Month since 2002; so far I've completed the challenge every year. If you're interested, my NaNoWriMo profile is here. Feel free to drop me a line.
E-mail me if you want! I promise I don't bite, and it feeds my ego. For proper delivery and a (somewhat) prompt reply, residentmuse375 [at] yahoo [dot] com and my LiveJournal e-mail addresses are the places to go. Interesting, non-spammy subject lines are your friends. I also use AOL Instant Messenger, MSN Messenger, LJ Talk, or Yahoo! Messenger (Yay Trillian!), so feel free to IM me at the above screen names. I'm logged on almost all the time, even with an away message, so please don't be offended if I don't reply for about six hours.
Now I want an icon with a teal dear on it. The scary part? All the stuff that's left actually tells you a pretty good bit about me--that is, if you want to decipher my geek code.
