I am a college junior at Florida Atlantic University in Davie, Florida, majoring in communications and minoring in political science. I run a small message board called Fool's Gold in my spare time (of which there is a declining amount as of late), and you can also find me on LiveJournal here and Last.FM here.
I am an atheist, and hold largely anarcho-socialist political views (although I don't think America will be ready for either full-on anarchy or full-on socialism for quite some time). Apart from following politics, I am interested in music (particularly extreme metal and progressive rock), fiction (particularly science-fiction and fantasy literature), and video games (particularly role-playing games). My handle is a variation on the Mars Volta song "Cassandra Gemini," with the Leo originating from my Zodiac sign.
You can contact me on AIM at Cassandra Leo (surprise, surprise), although you'll probably want to identify how you came into contact with my screen name so I don't think you're just some random wacko. I tend to leave an away message up frequently even when I'm not actually away; it's a product of laziness, which is something quite familiar to me.
