Hi there!

I'm a 23-year-old who is convinced that her soul is yet older, and my hobbies consist mainly of writing, drawing/painting, reading, playing/watching tennis, and making plans that are too sensational for me to achieve in this world. In short, my life plan is "Someday."

A little trivia about myself: I'm trilingual (Polish, French, English), I'm quiet but not shy, I'm brooding but not insane, and I have a lifelong love affair with art!

Favourite Quotes:

"I can do whatever I want, I'm eccentric!"

-John Cleese

“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

“If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things."

-Henry David Thoreau
