She spends her time at Swat drinking jasmine tea, organizing events for SAO, and dreaming of Bryn Mawr dinners. In her spare time, she enjoys surfing – both on and offline, feeding her Sheltie peanut butter, and entertaining the masses with puns. She requests that people follow her online and sometimes in real life.
