About Ami

Hello, and welcome to Ami's profile! : D

25, female, Finland.
I'm a Master's student (IT), an avid gamer, a spirited taekwondoin (1st Gup), a passionate writer and a total sci-fi/fantasy geek. And a brand new scuba diver! Also tried skydiving in 2015. Skydiving video->
I have 3 years of experience of software development, will probably do something related once I graduate. Technology is awesome.
I'm on a lifelong quest for knowledge, wisdom and diverse experiences, and most definitely a Ravenclaw.

I don't drink or do drugs at all and have extra appreciation for those who lead a similar lifestyle. I don't judge though, I have friends who drink, each to their own.
I'm an atheist, but I accept other people's beliefs. Again, each to their own.
I'm a vegan. The effects of meat production are detrimental to the environment (CO2 emissions, reduction of grain growing area) plus the animals' conditions in meat, dairy and egg factories are horrible and the animals experience a cruel life and a painful death, so I decide to boycott them. I get my protein from tofu, chickpeas, nuts, etc. High five to all other vegans as well! But again, each to their own, I accept the views of meat eaters as well.
So all in all, never fear that I'll judge you just by your lifestyle. I appreciate similar beings but my acquaintances do not consist solely of my clones. x'D Talking to different people broadens your horizons and friendships overcome any differences in people!

My profile lists basically all of my interests. If we have something in common, feel free to PM me! I'm always looking for new friends.
Please don't send me a random friend request if we have never talked! Talk to me first. I like talking with people. Send me a PM, or comment on my profile, or find me in the forums!

In Gaia I hang out in The Great Literate European Hangout. If you want to chat with me, go there. :3

Accounts outside of Gaia:
-Blog (updated at least once a month)
-Backloggery (games)
-Goodreads (books)

Random things

I'm obsessed with black&blue color combo.
I like tea, snacks, science documentaries, almost anything related to space, blue items, dragons, sci-fi, fantasy, bubbles, balloons, Halloween, sunny days, rainy days, snowy days, learning, daydreaming, origami, and swimming in a lake or in the sea.

Books

Lord of the Rings is my absolute favorite. Other than that, some books I love are Fahrenheit 451, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy", Earthsea novels, Hobbit, Harry Potter series (Ravenclaw!), Noble Dead series, Ready Player One, Stephen King's Dark Tower series, The Left Hand of Darkness, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My Goodreads account lists a lot more.

Video games

Obsessed with Pokémon Go!
On PC, PSO2, Overwatch, Alan Wake, Dungeon Defenders, Portal and Portal 2, FTL, Star Wars: KOTOR, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Trine, Civilization IV and V, Heroes of Might and Magic III, Bioshock, Borderlands, Grandia II (from GOG)... And there are so many games on my "to-play" list!
On DS/3DS, my favorite games are Chrono Trigger, The World Ends With You, Spirit Tracks (slightly better than Phantom Hourglass), Ocarina of Time, Disgaea DS and Phantasy Star Zero. And of course, Pokémon games! : D Out of those, Heart Gold is by far the best, although X comes very close. I also love Pokémon Picross.
On Wii/Wii U, Xenoblade Chronicles is absolutely epic. Its sequel Xenoblade Chronicles X is even more epic, I'm working on a 100%. I also loved Skyward Sword, The Last Story, Okami, Pandora's Tower and Super Mario Galaxy. Super Smash Bros. is fun to play anytime.
On GameCube, Tales of Symphonia rocks, as does Skies of Arcadia, and Twilight Princess. And of course Pokémon Colosseum and Super Smash Bros. Melee! :3
My Backloggery lists a lot more.

Table top games

I sometimes get together with friends to play board games. Some of our favorites have been Arkham Horror (co-op against Lovecraft monsters in 1920's city Arkham) and Eclipse (space conquering game by Touko Tahkokallio). We've also played loads of others (bolded my personal favorites): 7 Wonders, Bohnanza, Carcassone, Catan, Cluedo, CV, Dixit, Dominion, Doom, A Game of Thrones board game, Lords of Waterdeep, Munchkin, Pandemic, Pictionary, Race for the Galaxy, Resistance, Small World, Smash Up, Ticket to Ride and T.I.M.E. Stories.
I would really love to try Dungeons and Dragons someday!

Movies

I like anything with sci-fi, fantasy, action, martial arts, superheroes, space, history or a good plot. I like X-Men movies, superhero movies, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Hayao Miyazaki's movies, Matrix, Avatar, Kill Bill Vol 1&2, Pan's Labyrinth, Inception, Edge of Tomorrow, Shawshank Redemption, 500 Days of Summer, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost movies (Paul and Hot Fuzz especially), Jackie Chan movies, Blade trilogy, Cube trilogy, Alien movies, Underworld movies, Jumper, Die Hard (1-4), Looper, Monty Python movies, zombie movies, etc.

Series

Some series I enjoy or have enjoyed are Big Bang Theory, Dexter, Doctor Who, Eureka, Futurama, Game of Thrones, Lexx, Monty Python's Flying Circus, My Name Is Earl, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Simpsons, Torchwood and The Walking Dead.

Programming

I program in PHP, C#, Java and Javascript (I love jQuery). Naturally also HMTL and CSS. I'm interested in C++ and Python but haven't tried them out yet. At work I mostly worked with C# (.NET framework) and Javascript. Now I wish I had the energy boost to work on my own projects. ~.~ I would especially like to work on game development more.

Anime and manga

I don't watch anime as actively anymore, but I like to check out some new series every now and then.
My favorite anime are Azumanga Daioh, Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Ghibli movies, Mai-HiME, Mai-Otome, Mirai Nikki, One Punch Man, Sword Art Online (I loved the world, ok?), and X-tv.
My favorite manga series are After School Nightmare, Chobits (although the end was weird o.o), Negima!, Ranma 1/2, Tokyo Babylon, Venus Versus Virus, and Yotsuba.

Music

Music is not my life, as it is for most people, and I don't like going to concerts either. But I do like to listen to some music every now and then.
I listen to all kind of music, but I usually pick alternative, alternative rock, hard rock, metal or nu metal.
I like such bands/artists as (alphabetical order, top favorites bolded) 10 years, Adema, Augustana, Breaking Benjamin, Cold, Deftones, Depeche Mode, Disturbed, Earshot, Elbow, Five Finger Death Punch, Foo Fighters, Ill Nino, Incubus, In Flames, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Rammstein, Royal Blood, Seether, Slipknot and Tool.


Hmm... I think that's about it. Congratulations if you made it this far! x'D Thanks for reading, and feel free to delight me with a comment or a PM if we have something in common! :3

Yeah, I kind of "forgot" that this place exists, so I tended to do other stuff. And then I got really super-busy, and didn't have any free time, so time has not been in abundance. Which school is the interview for? I am (also!!) currently training to became a teacher (Math, Physics, Chemistry) at HY. But good luck for the interview! I did like this site a lot (those years back), but now they seem to be doing a lot of "cash this" and "cash that", so... and also, the inflation! I remember when getting even a couple k's together took days, now you can do 1 million in a few minutes... wow.
