Hello, I'm Drak. Or Jen. Or whatever you want to call me.
I'm 28. Attending community college off and on for a Associate of Arts Degree in Graphic Design. I'm also sadly unemployed.
I've been on Gaia for what is considered a long time now. I generally come on daily unless I'm busy with real life stuff. I have a bit of a animosity towards the site because of some of the stuff that the staff has done in the past few years, so I don't take it very seriously anymore. I keep my inventory small (~200 items) and I'm constantly selling items.
My personality type has changed over the years. I used to be INTJ but I've changed into an INFP as I've gotten older and have gotten out more. Also, my faith plays a central role in my life nowadays. Without my beliefs, I would not be the person I am now.
I love to draw. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil. But I have a bit of a learning impairment, so I'm not quite as good as I'd like to be.
I like to work in Photoshop, GIMP and SAI, though I find that digital art is a bit tougher than traditional. Once I move away from home I plan on taking up pottery (again) and jewelry making.
The other thing I do a lot of is play video games, although I'm not a hardcore gamer. I prefer to play idle games, or things like Tetris, Mario, Sonic, and Zelda.
I'm also a big bookworm. I like reading original fairy and folk tales, dystopia, and dragon books.
My favorite movies are All Dogs Go To Heaven, Land Before Time, We're Back, 9, How To Train Your Dragon 1 and 2, and all the Hunger Games movies. I also like MLP, The Lion Guard, the American Sonic series (especially Underground), and a handful of Disney and Don Bluth movies.
I have picky music tastes. It usually gravitates toward ambient, electronic, retro game music, and 80's-90's hit songs. Stuff like Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss, Glitch Mob, Daft Punk, Kraftwerk, Above & Beyond, Royksopp, and Emancipator for electronic music, although I tend to also listen to whatever sounds good.
For country music most of the big names from the 90's to early 2000's, although some of the new stuff is reasonable.
I also like some choice oldies from the 80's and before, but not as much as the above two options.
The two remaining anime that I still like are Rurouni Kenshin and D.Gray Man. I've gotten to where I don't really like anime anymore, sorry.
