Story of my life

Luck

  • Deus Angst Machina: It all started when I dented my car. A couple days later, I was wrestling the knife out of someone's hand (long story). Another couple of days later, I got abruptly dumped. And a couple of days after that, I had to put my dog down. Oh, and this whole time, I was also dealing with the day-to-day of autoimmune problems, which was my new normal, and also with taking care of said dog who had epilepsy, was recovering from an orthopedic surgery, and was suffering complications with a bad infection at the surgical site.
  • Moral Luck
    • Wins by Doing Absolutely Nothing: I feel like I don't do anything special but my last two bosses went around telling their bosses that I'm the invaluable right hand and I secretly think they're just biased towards me because I emit vibes of intelligence.
  • Unluckily Lucky

Historically Applicable Tropes

Appearance

Personality and behavior

  • Bookworm: I probably should have been diagnosed with addiction, because confused teachers often found themselves requesting special parent-teacher conferences just to discuss curbing my excessive reading, when as teachers, the last they wanted to do was discourage reading.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
    • Despite always being asleep in class, somehow in Calculus AB AP, I recalled the crucial tips from the teacher for completing the homework that none of the awake people managed to remember, resulting in me tutoring seniors in calculus after school hours during my junior year (probably feeding back into the exhaustion / sleep deprivation vicious cycle, though).
    • In high school, the badminton coach considered me a reasonably quick study with new skills and entrusted me with coaching the beginners BUT I never managed to win any of my singles matches, much to her bafflement as the girls I coached climbed up the ladder.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A classmate wrote in my yearbook, "We never sat at the same table but hearing some of your side comments was really funny!"
  • Evil Laugh: I don't always laugh evilly, but when I do, is it ever.
  • Little Miss Badass
  • Wise Beyond Her Years

Social

Philosophy

  • Rebellious Rebel: As a kid, I decided that if all kids did the same thing to be rebellious, it wasn't really individualistic any more, so I chose to be a follower of rules to rebel against expectations of rebellion.
