My name is Rissa and I am an open minded, optimistic, artsy fartsy Fine Arts student and a dork. I work for a construction company and I volunteer for a cooperative research centre. Which leaves with me just enough time for my hobbies and interests such as reading fantasy and art history, writing utopias and short stories, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpting, acting, performing stand up comedy, singing, playing guitar, learning about anything new and interesting, op shopping for second hand goodness, avidly drinking tea and spending time with my friends, family and pets.
I don’t believe that you learn something every day... I believe that you learn a great amount of somethings a day and that you’re never too young or old to start something new. I adore meeting new people, I love expanding my horizons and broadening my dynamic formidable and majestic vocabulary. (I’m still trying to learn how to use big words in context) I think nerds are hot, I have a weakness for warm hugs, normal people worry me, and I firmly believe a nice hot cup of tea to be sacred. Also, my favourite thing to say is "That's utterly bastard groovy!"
I am a quiet person but I am a good listener. I am very inquisitive but I hardly ever know the answer. Mature for my age yet I have my silly moments. Spontaneous and random yet casual and outgoing, and I'm almost always happy yet sometimes so happy that I get a little over the top. I know exactly what I want out of life career wise but It's going to take a long time to get there. I am a full time art student but I procrastinate too often. I start sentences but sometimes don't finish th..
I love people. I really, genuinely love them, with a deep, abiding passion that can only be understood, I am convinced, by other people-loving creatures. The deep, abiding passion I have for people cannot surpass any amount of love I have for any other thing or bit of fluff. I also don't mind God and Jesus, they're awesome... Just putting it out there.
By the way... I am looking for e-mail pen pals, particularly ones who speak French because I would really like to learn to speak French, so if you're interested - drop me a line! (You don't have to speak French or not know me to be my pen pal.) :3 Another reason as to why I would like to have a pen-pal from overseas would be to Exchange lists of some songs/artists we like to listen to. I'm looking to broaden my music taste, and what a better way to do so by asking an anonymous stranger who lives overseas?
If you’re on my friends list, then this is for you; feel free to talk to me any time. Tell me your feelings, fears, troubles and concerns; you can say pretty much anything to me, even if it’s fraudulent nonsense. I won’t judge you and I’ll listen to anything you have to say, because that’s what friend are for, right? If you see me online, talk to me!
My written blog (Nothing is written in stone) aussienerd.wordpress.com/ It's easy it is to erase something written in pencil, and less easy to erase something written in ink, but harder still to change an inscription that had been carved on a tombstone. That is why the cliché "nothing is written in stone" became my blog title, because I wish my words are imprinted in the reader's mind, like words written in stone.
