Stats

Name or nickname: Emmaline

Age: 14

Gender: Female

Location: United States

Languages: English. I've been learning Spanish for awhile but I'm not quite fluent in it yet. I took a Mandarin Chinese class a couple of years ago but I've forgotten pretty much everything but "hello". Ever since hearing 8th Floor, I've wanted to learn Russian, but I only know a few phrases and how to read the Cyrillic alphabet.

Life

Occupation: Student

Hobbies: Reading is my favorite hobby, I do it whenever I get a chance. I've played piano since I was 5, and I've recently started learning flute. I also love writing. And listening to music, obviously.

Interests: books, religion, science, history, philosophy, Kurt Vonnegut, piano, literature, and Regina Spektor (bet you didn't see that one coming Wink)

Political Views: I usually go with whatever I think is correct rather than stay with one specific party; however, I'm leaning a little toward the left.

Religious Views: I was raised as an atheist, but I love learning about various religions and reading their holy books.

Favorite Things

Books: Anything Vonnegut. He's my favorite author of all time, and I love all of his books-- Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of The Champions, etc. I also first learned about him when Regina mentioned him in an interview, which makes reading his books seem even more special.

TV: I don't own a television, because I thought that if I didn't own a television, I would do more, you know, stuff in life. But I do own a computer, so I end up doing less stuff anyways.

Movies: I normally don't watch many movies either, but the few that I have watched I've really enjoyed-- Schindler's List, Citizen Kane, Forrest Gump. I also love 500 Days of Summer, simply because that was the first time I ever heard Regina Spektor.

Music: Regina Spektor, of course. I don't listen to any music except her, and I don't plan to. I've tried to check out some other artists before, but I always lose interest within a week or so and go back to Regina. Besides, she has so many diverse songs that she's practically her own genre.

Misc

Origin or meaning of your Username: It's my first name.

First time you heard Regina: 500 Days of Summer. "Us" played during the opening credits and I pretty much fell in love.

Top 5 Regina Spektor songs:

1. Pavlov's Daughter

2. 20 Years of Snow

3. Oedipus

4. Consequence of Sounds

5. A three-way tie between Summer In The City, Happy Hooker, and Carbon Monoxide.

Who/What inspires you: Regina Spektor and Kurt Vonnegut

Best thing about last year: Last year I was allowed to skip a grade in English class, moving from 7th grade to 9th grade.

Looking forward to this year: I hope to get good grades in school.

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to posting here. It's good to know that there are people as obsessed with Regina Spektor as I am. Smiler

Nice to meet you, Briana. Smiler I've been lurking on this forum for a while, and it certainly seems like a nice, welcoming place.

I definitely recommend Vonnegut if you've never read any of his books before. He is a very satirical and thought-provoking writer. He's a little weird if you're not used to his style, though; reading Kurt Vonnegut books requires a little bit of open-mindedness.

Anyways, thanks for the warm welcome! I'm sure I'll enjoy it here (I love your username, by the way).

Hello there, Emmaline!

You have really cool parents. When they least expect it, hug them both when you can. =)

Vonnegut is great. He was an Honorary President of the American Humanist Association. You are very well-read for your age. Consider reading Alice in Wonderland and Anne Frank sometime too.

You'll fit right in here. Other people don't appreciate Regina as much as we do, so it helps to form a community over reginitis. Welcome to Brümstix! =D

Hello, lennonist! I love Regina Spektor, so I'm very happy to contribute to this forum. Big Grin She is so ridiculously underrated.

I actually read The Diary of Anne Frank a couple of years ago (it was pretty good). I still need to read Alice in Wonderland, though... and yes, my parents are really cool. Smiler

Hey Emmaline, welcome to this awesome, awesome community.

I just read your interpretation of Human of the Year! It was awesome! You'll fit right in!
