Hi. I'm SW (or Sarah). I write here and would love to be friends.

I'm 18, an INTJ, and 5'10". I love superheros and Shakespeare, and English tea and rain and sun, and maps and dogs and violin. I believe everything is a choice. I love music by Hans Zimmer and John Williams and Tchaikovsky, and painting and writing and making people laugh, and early morning because it feels like magic. 

I like lists so here're two: 1/Interests: film, science and tech, economics and history, psychology and mnemonics, language and grammar; 2/Fandoms: Middle Earth, Arthurian legend (including BBC's Merlin), Norse Mythology, Sherlock Holmes, Marvel (esp. Professor X, Bucky Barnes, and Doctor Strange), Doctor Who (Eleven), Neverland, Disney.

This blog is called A Free Mind because I want to think for myself instead of simply going with the flow. I want to think looking at a situation from a vantage point. Kinda like Hawkeye.

  15. Hello! You recently commented on my blog so I came to visit yours! Following!!!


    I was skimming through your old blog posts and saw that you love Agents of Shield!! Me too!
    Also, I was so shocked to see that you know who Il Volo is from my blog! Are you a big fan, or do you just know who they are? If you are a fan, who is your favorite?

    Anyways, great blog!

    1. Thank you! :)

      Really?! That's great! I haven't really been keeping up with the episodes but they're fun.

      I guess I like Piero best, he's just so fun and his voice is fantastic! I do like all of them though. :) It's funny, but I'm actually listening to them as I type this! :) Ave Maria, at this exact moment. ;) We (that would be my family in general) listen to them a lot, especially a couple years ago when my mom first found their album. It's awesome you know them too! I'm so excited! :)

Also your header is duper cool, like the last commenter said. Also (heheh, I promise I'll stop soon) I'm homeschooled too! I know you didn't include that, but I read some of the top comments in which you said it. Also I'm a Christian too, which is the most important thing of all!
