Arrr! I'm Sofiya. I'm a struggling academic, vegetarian, music geek, feminist, pseudo-intellectual, lefty greeny type, and aspiring Woman of Letters. I like Jane Austen, nectarines, Monteverdi, baking bread, and handbags. I dislike vacuuming, cheap shoes and the patriarchy. Patriarchy, as far as I'm concerned, can walk the plank.
