What is your “real” job?

My real life job is in a call center. However, I am going to school to become a Young Adult librarian.

What is your favorite horror movie genre?

Supernatural. I love ghosts. My mom and I ghost hunt and bond over anything dealing with the supernatural. I love Paranormal Activity. Lately, I have been intrigued by The Conjuring franchise. Ed and Lorraine Warren were pretty big in the paranormal community.

As you can see, I am a big nerd. I have a Ghostbuster print, Ghostbuster pin and a Ghostbuster eraser set in one corner. I have a cool print from Box of Dread of Jason. I have a figure of Batgirl from The Batman Adventures and also have a Black Panther figure from Captain America: Civil War. Chilling on the wall by the corner is my TIE fighter Hot Wheels. I have three tiny prints, two from Hedren’s Chest and one that I got at Sinister Creature Con. Lastly, I have a print of ravens representing Odin from Norse Mythology.
