AboutHi there, all! Nixie Astree-Sirius here. Nixie's the nickname my "twin" from college (that is, the girl who looked so much like me, our professors kept mixing us up) gave me. I thought that of all the nicks I've been given over the years, it's the one that I like best so it's the one I like to go by, at least online.
I'm currently in school again, this time to become a doctor. I'm in my second year of medicine proper now, with a little over two years left to go till I become a proper disciple of Aesculapius.
Things I like? Hmm, I'm a psychologist by training (though obviously no longer in practice) so anything that deals with emotions, behaviour, and thought processes gets me interested. Don't box me in though. Even by the standards of some of my former colleagues, I am very open-minded. My general philosophy as a shrink? If it's adaptive to you and not maladaptive, I can accept it.
Some of you might have sensed the amateur astronomer in me (that's where I got the "Astree-Sirius" part of my online name). I'm also an avid Sherlockian and Whovian and I'm a semi-professional choirister (an alto). When I have the time--which doesn't happen often--I also like to dabble in poetry and fictional prose. Occasionally, I also play the piano, though I'm far from being good. Beethoven and Mozart probably weep every time I attempt a piece of theirs.
Anyhow, that's that for now. All that remains is for me to thank you for dropping by my profile page. If I seem to be the sort of gal you'd like to get to know, by all means send me a friend request. Or, if I was the one who sent you one...*insert puppy dog eyes here* 4laugh
Toodle-loo! See you around fellow Gaian!
