About Victoria Medinaone of us since 2:00 PM on 12.08.2010

I've always been terrible with talking about myself, I want to be witty and give you something fun to read, but I never know quite how to say the things I want to say. At least about myself. I would like for my blogs to speak for who I am, but if that is not enough I am a gamer who majored in History in college. I enjoy reading and the arts. I like to laugh and to make others laugh. I enjoy being around my friends. A good conversation is always welcome, and an open-minded and friendly debate is never bad. I dream in color, and am terrified of heights (and spiders). Steak should be its own food group. There you go, a little bit about me.
