My name’s Asti. Yes, you read that right: Asti.
I know, I know, it’s an unusual name. So to answer the usual questions that comes along with introducing myself: it’s not pronounced Ass-tea (gross), it’s not short for anything and my parents aren’t alcoholics who named me after the wine. The origin of my name is much more embarrassing than all of that.
I’m currently in my late twenties and apart from art and stories I enjoy bubble baths, chocolate, dancing, running, dogs, villains, blogging, dark comedies and snail mail. I’m a creature of comfort with a dash of evil, more or less.
According to the VIA Character Strengths Survey, my signature strengths are humor, perseverance, honesty, love, and judgment and based on Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ personality type theory I’m an ISFJ/ISTJ. But let’s be real, the true test of character is what Pottermore gives you and I’m proud to announce it’s sorted me into Gryffindor and Pukwudgie, given me a hedgehog Patronus, and assigned me a wand made of beech wood w/a phoenix feather core, 11 3/4” and reasonably supple flexibility.
After six years of mostly long-distance love, I finally live in London with my husband. I’m currently looking to securing myself a job in the publishing industry to put my Publishing MA and past work experience to use, but in the meantime my days are spent adjusting to British life and running in the nearby woods.
