I'm 25 and a college student. I really don't enjoy college. It's not that I'm a bad student--on the contrary--I have maintained a 3.0+ GPA since I began four years ago. College is tiring for me. Boring, even. It is hard for me to "pick" a major, so I have "bounced around" from major to major for the past four years and spent three as an English major. In truth, I'd love to quit college, go to flight-school, and become a pilot. I wanted to be a doctor as a child but as my health has deteriorated significantly, that's out of the question (plus, I really don't like other people very much at all and helping other people; at least, on a face-to-face basis is a very low priority and even a bit of an anathema). However, I love other cultures and would love to travel and have always wanted to learn to fly--in fact, when I was a teenager, I wanted to be in the US Air Force.|
I am not much of an artist, per se, but I am creative and artistic in my own way. My skill lies with the written word instead of drawings, but I do like to sketch and cartoon. However, it doesn't mean that I cannot appreciate the fine works of art that I (sometimes) see on this site. Some of you are really fantastic artists and I am happy for you that you have such a talent. This is the primary reason I have this account--I have submitted little art, but I like looking at the art-works of others; admiring the hard-work put into their pieces. This account makes it possible for me to find art that I like much more easy than it would be otherwise. I am also a puppeteer and have performed some. I work with hand-puppets, and make them all myself. I have the patterns drawn up for a new one that I will begin work on this summer (2014). It is a female puppet and I call her "Boneka", which is Malay for "puppet". As with the Puppetmon puppet, I will post pictures of her as I work on her, so look forward to that.
I also enjoy doing dramatic readings of epic badfiction and have a Youtube channel dedicated to such.
A bit of a note: Despite being American (in truth, I've never left my home state), I prefer to spell things the "English way"--for instance, the word "colour" just looks wrong to me without the "u".
Though I am getting older (sometimes, I feel like a woman twice my age--such is arthritis), I am fond of "childish" things, like cartoons (though I have not had cable in 10+ years and really dislike television. My favourite television show is the American version of "The Office", though I also like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"). I recently decided to watch children's movies as my parents never let me watch kids' movies growing up as they thought that kids' movies were stupid (I grew up watching "slasher" films), so over the summer of 2013, I watched all of the Shrek films, with the second being my favourite. I am a big fan of Pokemon (have been since 1998--my favourite of the beasties is Hitmonchan) and I love Digimon Adventure and Adventure 02--but only in Japanese. I also like to play the "old school" Yu-Gi-Oh! card-game (I stopped watching the anime after Yugi was no longer on the show. If anyone is curious, Weevil Underwood was my favourite character, followed closely by Bonz--likely because I too, love insects (and arachnids) and the undead). I also play D&D and M:TG, though it has been a long time since I've played either of those.
I am fond of The Elder Scrolls series, The Fallout Series, The early Silent Hill series, the early Resident Evil series, and a number of other games. I grew up on Zelda and Final Fantasy.
Current Residence: Kentucky
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Old Punk, Grunge, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Smooth Jazz, Folk, Soul. My favourite band is Radiohead.
Favourite style of art: cartooning, but I am very fond of landscapes and realistic portraits of real people and animals. I really admire people who can draw realistically. It is quite a talent.
Operating System: Windows 8
MP3 player of choice: My smart phone. I have a 16 gig micro SD card in there and have it loaded with music. I really do like my phone. It is an LG 800G, I believe. I am too lazy to be arsed to check.
Wallpaper of choice: Currently, I have a picture collage of screen-shots of Aloysius O'Hare from the 2012 film "The Lorax" as my wallpaper. He is my favourite character, next to "Marketing Employee Number Two". My wallpaper changes frequently, though.
Favourite cartoon character: Alucard of Hellsing (especially in Ultimate and the manga)
