“I always have a quotation for everything—it saves original thinking.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Have His Carcase
Hello, I go by Livia here. I'm in my mid-twenties, and I live at home in the South with my parents, four sisters (no, we're not the Bennets . . . we have a brother) and four animals.
I was home-schooled and since then I have spent the time in and out of college.
I love to read. I have lots of reading lists on my blog, my computer, my wall . . . trying to learn to prioritize too.
"A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author."
G. K. Chesterton
If you haven't yet noticed, I kind of have "Jane of all trades" problem.
I love to learn about fashion and style (this is necessary, 1990's fashion and home-schooler fashion combined for a truly painful style, l.o.l.).
“It is ever so much easier to be good if your clothes are fashionable.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
I love the blog world and Google; I love trying all sorts of tests (word choice, personality, face recognition, etc.) and finding the why and wherefore of so many random things.
I prefer movies to T.V.; I don't care for T.V. much.
Music is not a huge thing for me . . . silence IS. Whispers, "Some silence right now would be marvelous." (Sherlock episode "The Blind Banker.")
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
