An Introduction, á la Amelie

Maximilia De La Vera is an eighteen year-old girl living in the morning of America (the east coast), with a propensity for icarian dreams.

She dislikes the sight or sound of others spitting anywhere outside of a bathroom sink (particularly sidewalks, when you're directly behind them with the possibility of stepping exactly where it's landed); the occurrence of pages sticking together while reading; and those little stringy things on peeled bananas.

She likes the smell of gasoline; systematically scrapping the cream from every Oreo before eating the chocolate covers; and the feeling of being the first and only soul awake in the early morning hours...

Film, Literature, Art, Photography, Astrology, Music...that's as generic as it gets, my friends.




I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good... then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor - such is my idea of happiness.
— Leo Tolstoy
