My name is Marina Burke, and Cambridge Ontario is where I call home. I am no better than anyone, and nobody is better than me. I'm more than just a double X chromosome. I consider myself an old soul in a young body; I always knew I was born in the wrong decade. I'm young; I revel in the present, but think about the past often. It may not seem like I care, but I take everything you say to heart... don't screw with me. I admire older people and envy them at how much they've seen, and know. I take great pleasure in creating and seeing art. I go to theatre productions often. I love to travel and one day, I will have been around the world twice over. I have a good head on my shoulders and I know where I'm going in life. I'm up for anything, and can't wait what life decides to do with me next. I'm done with people silencing me, and trying to warp me into something I'm not. Im human: I lie, I cheat, I steal, I drink. And I have a mouth like a sailor. Im a bad influence; still want to be my friend?
I like getting hugs a lot; I cannot deny one if one is offered. Casual group dates are my thing, ask me out and Ill make sure to make you smile. I hate being the age of nineteen. Age tends to subjectify and pre-evaluate someone in someone else's mind. Age is nothing more than a number that tells you how many times you've revolved around the sun. I'm a big believer in Fate and in Karma. Everything happens for a reason, and you get what you deserve.
I thoroughly enjoy looking out at life from the opposite end of it's kaleidoscope: full of color, and feeling, and imagination; seeing how the world could be instead of what it is.

me, and so much more.
Everytime I look at you,
I just can't believe that I
