Personality: I’d probably say I’m shy, quiet and reserved. But then again, as a friend of mine told me “Um, Melissa? NO you’re not.” If you give me the chance, I can talk your ear off, just as long as you don’t catch me first thing in the morning. I’m a nice person and I do want to talk to you, just not before 10 AM. Seriously now, I’m not generally a passionate person, but I AM passionate about God and I am willing to talk to you about Him at any time of the day or night.

Likes: Nanjing, video games (especially .Hack, Castlevania and Suikoden), BOOKS, traveling, the ocean, T. S. Eliot
Dislikes: Cheesecake, people who take up the entire walkway and then walk really slowly

Music I like: I have the most eclectic iTunes playlist ever, but my favorites are probably Switchfoot, Matchbox 20, Sarah Slean and Gustav Holst
Movies I like: Ghost in the Shell, Shower, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars (IV-VI), anything by Hayao Miyasaki, How to Train Your Dragon (<3), V for Vendetta, Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail
Books/authors I like: The Book of Lost Things (John Connolly), Patricia McKillip, Pauline Gedge, Mercedes Lackey, The Abhorsen Trilogy (Garth Nix), Sandman (Neil Gaiman), The Ruins of Ambrai (Melanie Rawn)

Favorite Bible Verse: Romans 8:38-39
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our lord.”
