Hi! Welcome to my About page. I assume you’re here because you want to know more about me and/or this Tumblr, so, let me attempt to oblige with this handy list:
My name is Jessica.
I study Arts at Monash Uni. Specifically, I study history, linguistics and Spanish. For certain definitions of “study”.
I love and adore Metric and post/reblog a lot about them, as well as about Emily Haines, my idol.
I have many other favourite bands that I also reblog shit about occasionally. Check out my Last.fm if you’re really desperately curious.
I swear a lot.
Like a true linguistics student, I reject pedants’ notions of prescriptive grammar, and (ab)use word formation processes like a god. Recently I invented a new verb “discrepancise”. That was a good day.
I am mildly obsessed with languages, especially Romance languages…
I consider myself a Marxist, and blog a bit about politics.
