more stars than in the heavens

not in our stars, but in ourselves


Hello, Internet Person.  My name is Amelia.  I like movies.  You’ll figure out enough about my tastes and inclinations by reading the posts herein, but here’s a little more about me:

  1. I am a native of Massachusetts – we’ll say Boston, specifically, although I did grow up in the sprawling wilds of suburbia.
  2. I went to Bennington College, originally to become a teacher.  I changed my mind about halfway through my first year, and have been studying the fine art of self-indulgence ever since.
  3. In 2011, I moved to Melbourne, Australia, where I got a Masters degree in a subject that doesn’t even exist in American universities.  Good one.
  4. I share a birthday with Harpo Marx, Boris Karloff, Billy the Kid, and Miley Cyrus.  Not very happy about that last one.

You can, should you so desire, follow me on Twitter, Tumblr, and/or Letterboxd. If you want to know more, just ask.  I may ignore you, but you can ask.

      Thank you! I’m a bad little networker, so I don’t know how I’ll do with fifteen other bloggers to nominate…but hey, it’s an honor just to be nominated!

    Yay Vermont! Sorry, I don’t know how your experience there was but I hail from the 802 and get excited when I see references to it! I also planned to be a teacher… I ended up being a social worker in the domestic violence field. Not exactly self-indulgent but I do appreciate self-indulgence!! 😉
