Hello everyone (^_^)
My name is Rosa, I'm a 24 year old British/Italian living in London. I study BA Japanese & Journalism and aspire to make documentaries. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong century. I drink too much tea and am constantly reading. I like taking walks alone. It gives me time to be nostalgic and interact with nature. I also like observing people (preferably unnoticed through a window.) I suffer from wanderlust and travel as often as my purse allows me. Immersing myself in other cultures allows me to blissfully escape the burdens of modern life. I love learning about history and philosophy. I'm a massive fan of Bertrand Russell. Creativity is important to me. Journals and letters make me smile. Baking is my form of therapy. I have a terrible habit of buying expensive make up that I barely wear and I appreciate a nice mustache. Lastly, I'm fond of video games and collect vintage trinkets.
My music tastes varies on my mood. Enter Shikari, Coeur de Pirate, Amanda Palmer, Adele, Muse, Radiohead, The Prodigy, Pendulum, Linkin Park, Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, Rammstein, The Smiths, Joni Mitchell, Johnny Cash. I also listen to alot of orchestral music, and pianists like Ludovico Einaudi.
Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto. Sputnik Sweetheart and The Wind Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Assassins Aprentice by Robin Hobb.

I love all types of crafts, particularly geekcraft and I am learning amigurumi. I love to recycle, for example: world maps into envelopes, wrapping presents in book pages, etc. I also collect ephemera, kawaii stationary, vintage stickers, stamps and particularly love washi tape (hence the username!)
