I'm not even sure if this is a faux pas or whatnot, but I'm so completely out of my element in Pitt that I figured, "why the hell not?" If it is, my bad!
I'm Sonnya, I just moved to Pittsburgh not even a month ago after living 24 years in NYC just so I can go to school for social work. To be completely candid with everyone, its absolutely terrifying, but I do take comfort in the fact that your buses look exactly like NYC buses even though the whole Panther Card flashing is a bit different.
I just started class today (no Monday/Wednesday class for me, word!) and everything is so expansive. I'm not even used to the way everything is set up, but thankfully they just set up that Pitt Mobile nonsense so I can be one of "those" people. Never thought I would see the day I'm looking at my phone to help me get from point A to point B, but Pitt, you've bested me.
Whoever thought it would be a good idea to put the Victoria Building on a hill, way to go.
Anyways, the point of this was really to just introduce myself. I have a pet kitten, Momo, named after Avatar: The Last Airbender's flying lemur. I have a fiance, Chris. We live together in Friendship. I'm Colombian-American, fluent in Spanish, mediocre at French. I like people, I like helping people, I'm doing that as a major as stated above. Before I did Social Work, I went to school for Fashion Design at FIT in NYC, but decided that I kinda wanted a job when I graduated so now I make costumes for myself (and sometimes for others). I like Spider-Man. A lot. Only because I relate so much to him, great power, great responsibility, blah blah blah. I moonlight as a photographer when I'm feeling extra creative. I love documentaries, indie films, eating culturally-different foods and baking.
I'm looking for friends. God, that sounds SO LAME. But I literally only know my pet cat and my fiance, and frankly, there's only so much I can take of them before I start pulling my hair out. Schoolmates, lunch buddies, someone to shoot the shit with, someone I can dress up in costumes I create, I don't even know. I'd post my schedule up to see if we have any classes together, but that's just creepy... maybe.
I guess that's pretty much it. I can be reached via LJ, Twatter, Tumblr, AIM, or other various forms of social networking sites because I'm seriously all over the place.
