My name is Maria, I'm nineteen years old and I'm a bit of an odd duckling. I live in a tiny, beautiful little town in New England. It's especially beautiful in spring and fall, and a great area for hiking.
I collect odd items like seashells, ribbons, movie tickets, crystals, rocks, old cartoons on VHS and anything else that piques my interest. I also own about one hundred stuffed animals. Eighty, actually, at the last time I counted them. The biggest ones are a stuffed bear (who stands at about four and a half feet) and a large stuffed Bernese Mountain dog (about the same height).
I have a passion for animation - I appriciate all forms of it, from every age it has been made. I love absolutely all cartoons from Betty Boop to Adventure Time.
I'm also very fond of comics, although I never quite got into the superhero ones. I usually enjoy shojo and horror manga, though I find myself preferring the styles of American cartoonists.
I own three cats and one dog. Two of the cats are identical twins - they're skinny little orange tabbies - the other is a fat spoiled long-haired calico. My dog is a Newfoundland; she's quite old and lazy these days.
You can usually find me doing light role-play in the Word Games forum, or participating in gifting threads.
