At the moment: 20. Southern California. In school, but with no end in sight. I have no academic or career goals, and live in a state of complete aimlessness. Jobless, but not by choice. Very much a liberal Democrat, and I make no apologies for it. My Dad calls me Justine, but I refer to Teeny, Jellybean, Bean, Titi. I'm the kind of person who took French in high school rather than Spanish, because I had romantic notions of it. Former cello player, but I've sort of lost my inspiration and love for it. Music is everything, I can't exist when my iPod isn't waiting for me in my purse. It's usually right next to a book or two. Books are my eternal friends, my escape, my love.
