Instead of all the favorite-thing lists I’ve used on previous profiles, I thought I’d just put some random facts about me, so you can get to know me that way. Some are from quizzes and some are not.
Nicknames: Lizzie, Cora, Countess, Kate, Sasha, Carla, Puma... sone of which are parts of my real name, some of which come from people who I remind others of. I have a rather long name. It's a tangle!

"Falling in Love" by Philosophy is my all-time favorite fragrance. It smells like blueberries and vanilla.
I can't stand to wear socks. Only if I must, as in threat-of-frostbite "must".
I have more or less a photographic memory.
If I am listening to a song and don't let it finish, it will stick in my mind for hours. I can also listen to the same song for literally hours. I like memorizing the lyrics and do so quickly. Singing is something else I enjoy. Jazz and pop. I want to learn to play the guitar.
I wish I had neater handwriting.
