Hello, and welcome to Ami's profile! : D
Unfortunately I'm on a bit of a hiatus now.
I still post in G.L.E.H. every now and then update the information below as it changes, so if you wish to know what I'm up to, just read ahead.
Nickname: Ami, V
Location: Finland (Northern Europe)
I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke, and I don't do drugs. I just don't need them.
I also don't belong to any religion, but you won't hear me complaining about anyone else's religion. Each to their own!
In real life I'm currently... - working in a software company
- going to Tae Kwon Do (3rd Kup, meaning high blue belt)
- playing games, reading books, updating blog
I'm focusing on programming, interested in game-making; will perhaps develop my skills in that direction. Graduated in November 2014 with a BBA in CIS! I will probably pursue Master's in CS after a year or two.
I like... - the wonderful regulars of G.L.E.H. !
- sci-fi and fantasy
- playing video games (see my favorites way below)
- black & blue (I'm OBSESSED with this color combo)
- reading (see my favorites way below)
- writing and drawing
- martial arts
- Middle Earth
- winter and snow
I don't like... - stereotypes (especially gender-related)
- racists and conscious homophobics
- spiders and other bugs with a lot of legs, even though I enjoy killing them
- hot, sunny days (I hate heat)
- sudden, loud noises
I am... ...a scatterbrain, but I try to be organized.
I'm actually rather shy in real-life situations, but very friendly. Internet has made it easy for me to connect with people! : D
I try to be funny and smart. Sometimes I succeed in both.
I'm geeky and very easily entertained.
I'm an amateur programmer, artist, writer and martial artist. Perhaps someday I will be an expert in one of these fields!
I watch... From series: Dexter, Doctor Who, Futurama, Game of Thrones, IT Crowd, Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Torchwood and Walking Dead.
From movies: 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, Matrix, Avatar, Kill Bill, Pan's Labyrinth, Inception, Shawshank Redemption, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost (Paul and Hot Fuzz especially), Jackie Chan, Blade trilogy, Cube trilogy, Alien movies, Terminator movies, Underworld movies, zombie movies, etc.
I read... ...books in English, mainly fantasy, sci-fi and classics. Some books I love are Fahrenheit 451, Earthsea novels, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings (the best work of literature, period), Harry Potter series (I'm most definitely a Ravenclaw), Noble Dead series, Stephen King's Dark Tower series, To Kill a Mockingbird, Bram Stoker's Dracula... List goes on!
I play... ...on 3DS, Wii, Wii U, PC and GameCube.
On DS, my favorite games are The World Ends With You, Spirit Tracks (slightly better than Phantom Hourglass) and Ocarina of Time, Chrono Trigger, Disgaea DS and Phantasy Star Zero. And of course, Pokémon games! : D
On Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles is absolutely epic. I also loved LoZ: Skyward Sword, Last Story, Ōkami, Pandora's Tower and Super Mario Galaxy. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is fun to play anytime.
On PC, Baldur's Gate, Alan Wake, Dungeon Defenders, Portal and Portal 2, FTL, Mass Effect, Trine, Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, Bioshock... And so many games that are on my "to-play" list!
On Wii U, I always force my guests to play Nintendo Land mini-games with me. Gamer friends get to enjoy the newest Smash Bros.! Super Mario 3D Land also proved to be quite a lot of co-op fun.
On GameCube, Tales of Symphonia rocks, as do Skies of Arcadia, and LoZ: Twilight Princess. And of course Pokémon Colosseum and Super Smash Bros. Melee! :3
As for anime and manga... My favorites in anime are Azumanga Daioh, Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Ghibli movies, Mai-HiME, Mai-Otome, Mirai Nikki, Sword Art Online, and X-tv.
My favorite series from manga side are After School Nightmare, Chobits (although the end was weird o.o), Negima!, Ranma 1/2, Tokyo Babylon, Venus Versus Virus, and Yotsuba.
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) 10 years, Adema, Augustana, Breaking Benjamin, Cold, Deftones, Depeche Mode, Disturbed, Earshot, Elbow, Foo Fighters, Ill Nino, In Flames, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Rammstein, Royal Blood, Seether, Slipknot, and Tool.
I don't like going to concerts, though.
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
Just eilen muistin "Niinjoo Gaian pääsiäis eventti! Ei kai se oo viellä loppunu D: " Edes vähän kerkiän tohon mukaan~
Kiitoksia~ Tykkään kans avistas :3 Mä oon aivan pihalla uusien asusteiden kans ja niitä tulee niin kovaa vauhtia lisää c.c
Thanks! smile I keep on telling myself that I'm going to get off - she's asleep, and I sent my husband out to sneak something decent in to eat, and I'm tired, yet I can't seem to sleep. -chuckles- So I'm half on here, but mostly just watching her sleep.
