I'm Really Not Good at Talking About Myself.
From a certain perspective, I guess I am. I mean, I could go on telling you every detail of my life for thirty paragraphs. But when it comes to cutting the crap and getting to the important parts of who I am, it makes me feel a little bit like a robot.
I'll try my best to be concise while still expressing myself, but being concise is not one of my strong points. Thought I should give you some warning ahead of time.
First off, the basics: I'm a girl. I'm currently 18, and I live in the US-- nowhere too exciting, just the Midwestern suburbs.
Unless I'm in a bad mood, I'm generally a nice person. Even when I'm in a bad mood, I try to be nice. I think some people act like jerks online because they can't get away with it in real life. (I'm not saying all online jerks follow this philosophy, or even that the ones who do realize that's what they're doing. Not trying to make any offensive generalizations here.) That bugs me. I try to treat people online pretty much how I treat people off the computer, and for me, that's with respect and at least an attempt at understanding.
I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, but my parents set limits on my time here on Gaia. Unless I don't have school or it's some other special occasion, I can't be online at all on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Thursday through Sunday I'm usually online, though-- that is, unless I have a major load of homework.
I haven't been posting there too long compared to some of the regulars, but I have to say, my favorite forums is, without a doubt, the WG. It's an awesome community to be a part of. Everyone I've met there is really nice, and we know how to have fun, too.
Some things I like: Pokemon, reading (novels as opposed to manga), writing, algebra, Sudoku, coffee, jeans (I can't understand the yoga pants craze for the life of me), cute clothes in general, Death Cab for Cutie (they're a band), Garbage (another band; I'm not too fond of one of their albums, but I like the rest), cats, whippets (a dog breed, and yes, we have one-- we also have three cats), finches, the Internet, intelligence, quirkiness, and quite a few desserts.
That's all I can think of to say about myself for now-- at least, all I can think of that wouldn't make me seem like I was rambling. I was debating for a while over whether to keep things concise in here, but you know what? I'm just not a concise person, and I think that should show a bit here.
