Hi, my name is Cecelia. I introduce myself as an aspiring theoretical physicist, majoring specifically in quantum mechanics and general relativity. Physics is like religion to me; it's something more beautiful and surreal than could be imagined, and I want to devote every resource I have at my hands to it. I spend a lot of time staring at the ceiling and thinking about infinity, and wondering if there really is a theory of everything. Certified INTP, for those of you who know Jung? I'll say that it's dependent on your perspective and then expect you to argue your point coldly and intellectually.
Anywho, aside from physics, I like writing fantasy, science-fiction, and fanfiction for my many, many fandoms. Among these are Sherlock Holmes (specifically the original Arthur Conan Doyle canon and the Holy B Trinity: Basil, Brett, and Benedict), Final Fantasy (IV and VII are my favorites), The Lord of the Rings, Persona (waiting in anticipation for the movie made out of P3), and Nyan Cat.
I love animals, especially cats. I hope to have five or six cats when I live alone. I have two right now, Snowy and Cloudy, and they are adorable. A good friend of mine wants to be a vet, and I'm hoping I can go to her for help and advice.
Some of my more scholarly interests include mathematics, classical music (Mozart, Bach, Mussorgsky, Holst, Mendelssohn, and Haydn are some of my favorites), flute, and theater and opera (not acting, just watching! So far I've seen "Don Giovanni" and "La Clemenza di Tito".).
Most of the stuff I'll publish up here will be my own fiction, or Sherlock fanfiction (Reichenbach was inspirational). These are what I do best. I'll warn you all that my writing tends toward the dramatic (I guess that's the opera angle, eh?). I go lyrical/poetic style on almost everything, and it ends up making it overly introspective and moody. Most of it isn't all that bad, though, if you can handle the fact that it practically drips with dramatic tension.
So anyway, most of my life consists of reading (mostly on Wikipedia and the general Internet), writing, playing video games, and being in deep thought. Yes, I do take "nerd", "dweeb", "dork", and "geek" as compliments.
What about my goals? Well, I'm in high school right now. Not to sound vain or anything, but I'd like to go to the University of Cambridge in the UK to study theoretical physics and applied mathematics. If not there, I'd like to go to Yale or Harvard. Pipe dreams, probably, but I suppose nothing's impossible.
Oh, and random footnote: I'll be taking Latin, so by the end of the school year, I might be able to translate literature into Latin. I'll offer commissions then if that becomes a possibility. Now, you may ask, "Why would I want my works in Latin?" I'll tell you... I don't know. But they will sound cool, guaranteed. I'm currently translating one of my fanfictions into Latin.
