As you can probably tell by the lovely orange box at the top of this post, my name is, unfortunately, Selena Deneuve. You’ve undoubtedly seen my name on this blog before next to the description “Kieran’s girlfriend.”
Now, lucky for you, that is a true fact. Nobody’s been lying to you. Well, about my identity, at least. I can’t be held accountable for all the rest of the lies you’ve been told throughout your life. Sorry. But because I am a strong independent woman who ain’t need no man, I decided I wanted to contribute to the blog as more than “Kieran’s girlfriend.” Hi, I’m Selener, nice to meet you. Now, a little bit about me:
I just graduated from the Academy this year along with Fred, George, Kieran, and a lot of other pretty cool cats. I spent four years of my life there and I only really regret one of them. But that’s a story that deserves at least one of its own posts! I apologize for the suspense. I know it’s killing you.
I do this horse thing and I’m really good at it. I would tell you more, but in the four years I went to the Academy, that’s about all anyone knew about it: I do this horse thing and I’m really good at it. As in, like, I won a national title last fall. Unfortunately, the athletic department doesn’t think my horse thing is a sport, even though it’s in the Olympics. As you can probably tell, the athletic department is full of top-notch clowns.
I really like bands. A lot. Especially Green Day, whom I saw this April and with whom I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession, but there’s a pretty large rotating cast of characters that accompany them. At the moment, I’m super into Vampire Weekend, Neutral Milk Hotel (whom I get to see with Kieran in October), The Clash, The Ramones, Modest Mouse, Titus Andronicus, Smith Westerns, and the Foxboro Hottubs. If you know the Hottubs at all, we should be friends. 5ever. (Dat mean we be franz moar den 4evr)
I’m also moderately obsessed with Arrested Development, and if you mention it I will probably start convulsing and make inside jokes with you for the rest of your life. Proceed with caution.
Finally, I am very opinionated about things. You’ll be getting a lot of my opinions when you read my posts, but I try not to be the kind of cotton-headed ninnymuggins who shoves her opinion down other people’s throats. Because that’s rude. I love talking about politics and current events and have a lot to say about pretty much anything you’ll read in the news, and I also like to talk about literature and music and philosophy and fashion and stuff.
So yeah, I guess you’ll be seeing a lot more of me than the occasional reference now, at least for my 2-week trial period. Of course, I can be returned in my original packaging if I’m not witty enough or whatever, but I’ll do my best. Or my worst, if we happen to be talking about Cards Against Humanity.
Until next time; keep an eye out for me.
