About Lina

Single mum who was a precocious child and is now reaping what she sowed in the form of a precocious toddler. Shouter from rooftops, keeper of the poor decisions of others, who has a day job that has nothing to do with her passions. Bounces back and forth between Chicago and Washington, D.C. all while being very confused about the cultural expectations due to the heavy handed Western European infusion in her formative years. Rambles about: history, books, comics, film, and music. It is safe to say that she's not caught up on the latest bingeworthy show yet. Hopefully soon.
