Anna Jasan

Hi everyone! I'm Anna (or Annie). I'm nineteen and I'm from the suburbs of Los Angeles. I live in an apartment with two of my wonderful friends and I attend and volunteer at a local church. I work in a book store and am currently attending community college. Right now I'm hoping to major in Journalism (or something similar) and minor in either Psychology or Philosophy.

Some of my favorite fiction authors are J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis (I love his non-fiction too), Ted Dekker, Aldous Huxley, Ayn Rand, Wendy Alec, Brian Jacques, Paulo Coelho and J.D. Salinger.

My favorite non-fiction authors (and some philosophers) are Donald Miller, Brennan Manning, C.S. Lewis (again), Thomas Merton, Soren Kierkegaard, Susanna Kaysen, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Philip Yancey.

I'm really into music, especially old vinyls I find on sale, and I play (well, dabble with) the guitar
