School is a big part of our lives here at The Sirenic Codex, and so we're super excited to take part in Parajunkee's Back to School Book Blogger Challenge!
Here's what the challenge will look like:
Now I can't guarantee I'll get through all of this on time because I'm actually starting school soon, but I'll give it a shot.
Today is about sharing a little bit about me. I've always found this a difficult question, but I'll do my best.
You know me as P.E., and I've been blogging on The Sirenic Codex with my co-blogger Mari for over a year now. I used to blog on Tantalizing Illusions before. I'm currently entering my first year of university, and it's quite scary and exciting.
I'm from Canada, although my heritage is Persian. I love Canada and Ottawa, which has been my home for the overwhelming majority of my life. I love that the weather here is intense, and it gets ridiculously hot and ridiculously cold. I love hockey, which actually many Canadians don't like, but I've been converted into liking and I adore my hometown Sens.
I live with my mom and sister, and kind of my dad, although I'll be moving out to live in residence this week. I'm in a management program, although most of my first year courses are focused on my current interest of politics.
I believe in social justice, laws, rights, and having a global perspective. I took a philosophy class in high school and the subject interested me, except now I'm not sure how to move forward with it (if you have any good philosophy texts that are readable, please do let me know! I'm considering starting The Birth of Tragedy, is that recommended?). I think it's due to my upbringing and the diversity in my surroundings that have pushed me towards this kind of international focus.
My favourite colour is red.
My favourite TV show is Game of Thrones, although the show I've been watching for longest now is Supernatural.
My favourite movie doesn't exist because I'm not a big movie person.
I can not pick a favourite book. Recently I read Torn Away by Jennifer Brown and I bawled my eyes out.
My toothbrush is orange.
My favourite stories to read are those with depth and the ones that are powerful and inspire me in some way. I usually like epic stories.
I hate needles. I don't like anything that stabs skin, which is why I stopped wearing earrings a few years ago.
I also despise bugs.
I'm not really sure what else to say, so how about you leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer any questions. I'm really good at advice, although I'm not too good at following my own advice.
