UPDATE: So, looks like I haven't been to my profile page in a while. Thanks to everyone still reading That Essay! Since I have some time now over the summer, I'll try my best to get back to everyone that reviewed. Good news is, I'm making a new essay! Yay! Bad new (or good news for some), I'm not using this account to write my fiction pieces. If I ever get around to writing them, they'll be on another account. Dunno what the account's name will be, but when I do, I'll post it here with a link.
ABOUT ME: So there's probably a few questions you might have thought seeing my odd penname. For the basics:
Who the hell are you?: Well, my name is Lena (pronounced lay-nuh for the bajillionth time. For you phonologists out there, it's already written out in IPA for you). I'm an under-achieving, high grade receiving college junior in Albany, though I'm actually from Pennsylvania. I'm going for a Chinese major and a minor in Linguistics. Yes, a middle class white girl from the 'burbs is learning Chinese -- must everyone make a deal about it? I'm a disturbed cashier, a Food Network lover and the luckiest girlfriend in the world to such a smart and handsome guy :D.
You seem like you have no social life. Do you actually do anything outside of writing?: Yes, despite my slightly anti-social behavior, I do get out. I'm a practitioner of Taekwondo in two styles -- World Oriental Martial Arts Federation, in which I recieved my second dan, and World Taekwondo Federation, in which I have my green belt. I think my boyfriend appreciates/is scared of the fact that I know how to defend myself. I'm a cashier at my local Giant food store over my breaks, and I work as a tour guide while at college. I see a lot of things I probably shouldn't. Playing DnD is something I've recently picked up by hanging around my more nerd-oriented friends, and I love it!
Why do you hate the world?: I don't hate the world, I just hate the idiots living in it. Wishing some people would fall off a cliff becomes a crime only when you actually push them over the edge.
Do you have any literary heroes?: Stephen King. Margrett Atwood. F Scott Fitzgerald. Su Dong Po. Li Bai. Basho. Hermann Hesse. Franz Kafka. Just to name a few.
Why do you write?: That's a loaded question. Asking why someone writes is like asking why they feel emotions or think creatively. The only answer is to ask back, Why do you not write? Yes, I understand that to a certain extent not everyone can write well, but that doesn't mean people can't write in the first place.
Any other questions? PM me.
