Hello all![edit]

Welcome to my page! I am a long-time and somewhat addicted Wikipedia user, but sadly sometimes a rather sporadic editor. I do possess many random and disparate interests, which I try to put to use (and fuels my slight userbox addiction). That annoying thing known as real life (school in particular) has a tendency to get in the way of my computer time, but I do what I can :)

About Me[edit]

Unified login: Summerhawk is the unique login of this user for all public Wikimedia projects.

I know quite a bit about a lot of random things, but where I specialize on Wikipedia is grammar. I am a stickler for proper grammar and cannot resist fixing a grammar mistake when I see one.

I will end up editing any number of pages, usually making corrections as I traipse around the great procrastinating tool known as Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects =)

I have lived in New York all my life (was born in Manhattan, grew up in White Plains, and am currently attending college in Purchase, NY), and as a result am attempting to contribute to those pages of which I have local knowledge. I watch way too much TV, and am as a result able to contribute to those relevant pages. While my favorite tv show changes often, I am a big fan of dramas, especially supernatural ones, but I also enjoy humour. Some of my favorite shows that I know way too much about include Alias, Star Trek Voyager (and the general trek universe), Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, CSI (New York and Miami), Gilmore Girls, The West Wing, JAG, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Doctor Who, Pokemon, Firefly, and more.

For disclosure purposes, or just so you can understand me better, I am an American female in her late teens (college-age). While my beliefs do fall strongly toward the liberal end of the spectrum (at least in the United States), I work hard to conform to WP:NPOV.
