Getting to Know Sammy

Hi all! Thanks for taking the time to read my post. My name is Sammy, I’m 24, and I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts with a minor in DTC. Right now, I bartend and cook at Underbar in downtown Vancouver. Come visit if you’d like! This is my first semester here at WSUV, so I’m really looking forward to getting to know more of you. I’m not very good at making the first move, but I’m really nice if you don’t mind striking up a conversation!

I watch and read a lot of different genres, but the ones I find myself going back to the most are romance, fantasy, and comedy. I tend to gravitate toward dramas as well, though I don’t actively seek it out. I think stories are usually more fun when they have some romance- except Top Gun, it was so unnecessary in my opinion. For the longest time I refused to say I liked fantasy, because to me, I thought it meant something Harry Potter or Game of Thrones. Nothing wrong with those, there were just other things that interested me more. But I’ve started to realize how vast the fantasy genre is- some of my favorite stories are actually categorized as fantasy. The appeal of comedy, I think, is self-explanatory.

The story media that interests me the most is categorized under graphic novels. I read a lot of Japanese manga growing up, though I read more Korean manwha these days, usually romance with drama and other themes. I read almost every day. I also enjoy watching animated shows. Anime, which you probably could’ve guessed, and mostly action or comedy. I don’t watch a whole lot of movies, but I’m obsessed with Studio Ghibli and have two tattoos of Ghibli characters. I like American animated shows as well! My coworker recommended to me the show Bee and Puppycat, which wikipedia classified as a fantasy dramedy. The whole series was the most zen psychedelic experience, and it ended having answered none of my questions. It was such a trip and I highly recommend it. Immediately after I did a complete 180 to rewatch Bojack Horseman, a black dramedy. A special mention that doesn’t quite fit are musicals. I’m a theatre kid at heart, truly. I enjoy many genres of musicals, as long as the songs are fun to sing along to.

Thanks for sticking through and reading! I hope some of you are into the same things, I would love to be able to geek about it together (particularly Bee and Puppycat).

See you in class,
