Tropes About me:
- Brainy Brunette: I'm on the school honor roll and I run the school's anime club. I'm so brainy. XD
- The Quincy Punk: Most defintely. I despise rap with a passion and I equally despise most of today's mainstream pop music (like Katy Perry).
- Cosplay Otaku Girl
- Genki Girl
- Oireland: Most of my mom's ancestors/relatives are from Ireland, making me 3rd-generation Orish-American. But, I can't do the awesome accent.
- Tomboy: Do not attempt to put me in a dress and/or makeup unless it's for cosplay.
- Hollywood Nerd: Averted, since I have social skills, other intrests besides anime, and that I hate being labled as a nerd.
- The Everywoman: Basically me in a nutshell, since something extraordinay has to happen to you so you can be an Ordinary High-School Student.
- Gamer Chick
- Hipster: On the days when my music and fashion tastes aren't on The Quincy Punk's side. I bet you didn't even know that.
- Passionate Sports Girl: I don't play sports, but I do love my Los Angeles Lakers, Chelsea Spurs (English Premiere League soccer team), Manchester United, and the Irish rugby team.
- The Lad-ette: A teenaged version. I enjoy Shonen anime (like One Piece), punk rock, and video games more than Taylor Swift, picking up boys, and being a sterotypical teenaged Valley Girl.
- Memetic Mutation: "Do you want 20% off of Botox?"
- Ireland is X explanation
- Kakashi-sensei as Chris Hansen.
