Simona. Italian. Currently 26. Environmental Sciences graduate (but about to go back to university). Fails at life. Friendly-but-shy (before you get to know her well, at least). Fangirls far too many things for it to be healthy. Forever obsessed with Japan & all things Japanese.
Main fandoms&interests: ONE OK ROCK. SPYAIR. 마야 (Maya). Lots of Japanese and Korean indie/rock bands. Kajiura Yuki. Kazuya Minekura. Original slash fiction. Ghibli. CLAMP (when they don't make me want to hit something). Natsume Yuujinchou. Durarara!!. Pretty Japanese actors. Figure Skating. The Avengers (movieverse). Sherlock (BBC). Star Trex XI. Books!
I have a tumblr (aka a time-consuming device of DOOM).
FRIENDING POLICY: feel free to add me, if you think we might get along; if we have common interests I'll most likely add you (just drop me a line in my intro post first, please? PLEASE?!!) I do not like wank. You're entitled to your own opinion as I am to mine, so let's just respect each other and enjoy the things we have in common, okay? :) Defriending occurs when: a)we never comment to each other's entries, b)you've been MIA for a very long time, c) you piss me off more than I can stand (it's unlikely, but it has happened in a couple of occasions). Feel free to defriend me if you feel like we don't click at all; I promise I won't make a tragedy out of it :P
