Alright, let's see.
I am Elmira, as many of you probably already know. There isn't much mystery about me really since I'll openly say my full name and whereabouts without reservation, though that's probably because of how many times I've moved from one place to another in my life, I just don't have a sense of truly belonging anywhere to worry about my security :'D

I love reading beyond measure. I can't imagine a life without books, without the smell of ground-wood paper and the languid descent of another reality replacing my own. My most precious belongings are the books I own and I am on my way of building my library and dream of one day having one of those library / study rooms in my house that you see pictures of on hipster Tumblr blogs :/

I also love writing and I believe the latter was reinforced by my fascination with the former and they both eventually led me to realize that I am profoundly in love with the English language and will forever be so.

I am 24 years old, will be 25 in June and I love summers because I love the warmth of sunlight and that near.. listless, overwhelming beauty of things that gleam under the sun. I will forever be drawn to and mesmerized by the sea and storms and the moon. My name means 'moonlight' and although pale and not comparable to the brilliance of the sun and to those carrying the sun in their hearts, I try to draw inspiration from the moon's humility and stubborn persistence to shine against the inky black of all-encompassing darkness. I can be happy with the smallest of things and am generally a very hopeful, dreamy person but not at the expense of reality. I let dreams motivate me and inspire me but I don't count on them to put food on the table and because of a lot of things that happened in the past that made me the kind of person I am today, I am constantly in dire need of control and stability in my life.

I work freelance for an advertisement agency as a writer / editor / columnist. I am painfully underpaid and thus looking for a second job right about now. I am also fixing to get my driver's license and somehow become a more useful member to society, to my family and someone I can be proud of myself. I have a lot of insecurities and I hate that I do and it's a battle everyday to fight them but I haven't given up yet, nor have I made an irreparable blunder because of them (let's not jinx it "OTL). I am a hopeless romantic, like the kind you see in stupid love stories with bad endings; it takes a lot for me to fall in love but if I do, I am really, devastatingly stupid about it :/

So, yeah.. sorry it was unnecessarily long and reasonlessly wordy OTL
