Hi! I'm Mariah: collector of books old and new, music junkie, restless wanderer, and unapologetic geek. I bake when I'm stressed and dance around the house in socks when I'm cleaning. I've never met a bit of history that I didn't like, or a bout of clumsiness that didn't like me. I think fencing, ballet, and equestrian are most acceptable sports, and my room looks more like a library than a place to lay one's head. I'll never say no to a cup of tea or a macaron, especially in the company of friends. My iPod is dominated by movie scores and Beatles albums, and that's alright with me.
