PushingUpRoses is the result of a troubled, rebellious fiend of a teenager turned quasi-responsible adult. She is a recovering goth, gaming enthusiast, writer, music lover, Monkees and Hall and Oates fanatic, computer nut, and lover of math. In her spare time, she spends tedious hours replaying old adventure games that very few people care about. She enjoys kickboxing in her spare time, and has a growing interest in martial arts. She is a Let’s Player and reviewer of obscure game titles. She also believes her hair does not grow past a certain point.
Her favorite games include the King’s Quest and Space Quest series, Phantasmagoria, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father, Mortal Kombat, Grim Fandango, Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon, The Monkey Island series, To the Moon, Aladdin (GENESIS), and Cosmic Spacehead. Except Cosmic Spacehead is kind of a bitch, so she isn’t sure why she listed that one.
She is a huge tattoo enthusiast, and enjoys studying body modification within different cultures. She has many colorful tattoos covering her body, and is not shy to discuss them.
“Roses” currently resides in Chicago, IL, with one room mate and one parrot.
