I decided it was high time I wrote this properly, rather than a few random sentences, so first of all I'd like to say that although I write poetry, I am severly lacking in terms of poetical knowledge. Mention something like iambic pentameter and I'll have to go and look it up for the nth time because it just doesn't stick. This is partly why my attempts to leave constructive comments often epic fail. It also doesn't help that secondary school made me hate English as a subject; tearing apart someone's writing to try and find some deeper meaning really isn't my thing. Yes, I appreciate that sometimes people do aim for that, but I don't and I'm honest enough with myself to say that sometimes I don't get it. (Apologies in advance if I end up asking you stupid questions)

I am officially in love with all things scientific, not that I know more than a miniscule amount of it all. (Yes, I'm a bit of a nerd/geek/whatever-you-want-to-call-it.) I guess I've just always been fascinated with the "why" and the "how", which is why I'm at university studying Biological Sciences.

Another point is that I'm still rather childish in terms of how I have fun, so much so that I begged my mother for months to get me a marble run for my birthday this year because I am amazingly entertained by them (She caved eventually :) ).
I also love the building element of things like that too; it gives me a huge sense of accomplishment.

I'm very much an introvert (according to those personality tests I'm an INTP) and while that means I'm quiet and kinda anti-social, I'm by no means shy. If I know you, I'll quite happily talk for hours, it just takes me a while to reach that level of comfort with people. That being said, once I class you as a friend, you'll be friend for life unless you do something completely unforgivable.

Sarcasm is my preferred form of humour and I'd like to think I'm fluent in it. For those that agree with the saying "Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." I apologise :)

Around about now is where I run of out words to say, basically because I feel like I'm rambling and nobody really cares that much about who I am if they're reading this for the first time. I guess if you got to the end of this, congratulations and thanks are in order! Should you want to know more about me, just drop me a note! (I promise I'll answer, even if it does take a while. :) )
Interests
Hello to all my lovely watchers, I wanted to let you know that I am indeed still present on this site and offer an apology for being remiss in my duties. I’m afraid that the only excuse I have is that real-life overwhelmed me and I have a bad habit of dropping off the face of the Earth when that happens.
I’m not over it properly yet, but it’s a new year, I’m nearing the end of my University life and I’ve decided I need to reach out and grab hold of life instead of letting it steam-roll me. In short, I’ll be picking up where I left off in terms of group admin-ing, (assuming that’s okay with RiseandBe) but I don’t have it in me to restart my Exhibitionist features.
I still have a lot to do in real-life – this is perhaps the most pressured and stressed I’ve been, ever – but I’ve always found DA to be a place I can get away from that for a while and I hope that remains true.  

Now then, something more fun courtesy of my being tagged by the lovely camelopardalisinblue

1.) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
“...she preferred the look of so that she could pick one to...” – From, Darren Shan’s, The Thin Executioner.
That line is actually a really rubbish representation of the book content...

2.) Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you reach?

My hoodie, a jumper, some of my uni notes, a hairbrush, blank paper, a cushion, an empty envelope, two remote controls and a letter from the hospital near me offering free Chlamydia screening (which they sent to everyone in my age group based on GP lists, I don’t have an STI) :giggle: I was so disappointed by it, because I thought I was actually getting post other than my bank statement for once :cry:

3.) What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Films, films and more films, but I’ve explained this later on, so I’ll mention a little one off thing called the Tractate Middoth, which was actually pretty rubbish.

4.) Without looking guess what time it is?

3:27

5.) Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?

2:40... um, whoops? I never have been a good judge of time!

6.) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

Some sort of really low humming noise, which I’m guessing is either the fridge or the freeview box. Then again it could be something else entirely.

7.) When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

This morning, to go off and do my paper round. It was dark and cold :iconshiverplz:

8.) Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
All of the messages in my inbox, the vast majority of which I promptly deleted because dealing with them was not what I wanted to do.

9.) What are you wearing?

Socks, leggings, a t-shirt and a dressing gown, seeing as how I refuse to put the heating on!

10.) Did you dream last night?
Yes, I dream most nights, very vividly actually. I have really odd dreams too, so I like to remember them as much as I can :D

11.) When did you last laugh?
A few hours ago :D

12.) What are on the walls you are in?
There actually is nothing on the walls other than paint in the room I’m currently in. However, if I was in my bedroom, there would be lots of random pictures – marbling and rubbish drawings from when I was younger.

13.) Seen anything weird lately?

Um, no?

14.) What do you think of this quiz?

It’s pretty interesting to see everyone else’s answers.

15.) What was the last film you saw?

Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley version), but I’ve been on a real movie kick over Christmas – some of the more interesting were “Never Let Me Go”, a dystopian drama based on a novel I haven’t read by Kazuo Ishiguro, “The Awakening”, which is a sort of horror but not really scary, and “I’m a Cyborg but that’s Okay”, a Korean film which I can’t really give a good description of :D

16.) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A house for me and my mum and one for my sister and her boyfriend. I’d probably go on some holidays and pay off my student loan, but I’d like to think I’d save the majority and live off the interest :XD:

17.) Tell me something about you that I don't know?
There must be thousands of things, but I’m struggling to think of any! Um, I recently made myself some earrings... wow, that was lame.

18.) If you could change one thing about the world.

Um... it’ll sound horrible, but probably our utterly ridiculous population issues.

19). What do you want to learn in the future?

As many languages as possible. I would love, love, love to be multilingual!

20.) George Bush

Is a wonderful resource for comedians.

21.) Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?

I’ve never really wanted children... but I love the name Lorelei.

22.) Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
Malachi is a pretty awesome name; I also like Nathan.

23.) Would you ever consider living abroad?
Absolutely! As I’m getting near the end of Uni, I’ve started seriously considering travelling the world and funding it by working in the countries I visit.

24.) What do you want God to say when you reach the pearly gates?
I don’t actually believe in God, so it’s probably safe to say if he/she/it does exist I won’t be seeing him/her/it. (Plus I have no clue what I would want to hear.)

25.) Tag six people who must also do this in THEIR journal:
Hmm... ssensory, RiseandBe,  counting-vertebrae, (loving that new name by the way!) TwilightPoetess, Nullibicity &  chromeantennae

My name's =shehrozeameen and I welcome you to #PoetrynProseWatchers.

As a member, you find yourself with works which are simply awesome... they're too awesome to resist... so you feature them... but not everyone gets exposure.
Thus, this group came into being: So that all of you can be given the privilege of not only my favourite deviations, but also your favourite deviations are shared as well. They'll get features, group exposure, even themed identification of why they're awesome to begin with!
So, how does it work? What's the method:
you submit to the poetry and prose folders only. Features are selected by the contributors, founder and co-founder. Anyone can apply for the contributor position - send me a :note: and I'll send you the inv
