Hey guys, welcome to the ol' profile page. If there's one thing it should tell you other than the fact that I'm a coding chump it's probably a little bit about myself, so without further ado here goes.
My name is Claudia, but I prefer to go by Elaine, Ellie, or my old internet name, Jeevas.
Especially Jeevas. xD
I spend most of my time nowadays at work and trying to improve myself. My hobbies include reading, writing, blogging, various art projects, and most especially video games. I also occasionally go on researching jags, my favorite subjects currently being places to travel such as Japan and Alaska and the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
The sort of things I enjoy most are the ones I believe help me the most in life. I prefer books that give me fulfilling ideas rather than some just for fun, I seek out video games that show me concepts the creator went to great lengths thinking about and portraying. What I want most out of my life currently is to learn about myself and the world in general. I suppose this ties into the things I enjoy and have enjoyed for years, why I choose things like tea over coffee and crappy cell phones over distracting smart phones. It's also a good reason why I enjoy nature so much. Nothing beats a walk through the forest, through the snow, or at the beach!
Most of all, I'm guided by the belief that everything around me deserves appreciation and respect, and that's what I try to hold myself to. However, it's important to point out this doesn't mean I have no sense of humor. ; )
A small list of pop culture that I enjoy includes Samurai Champloo, Once Upon a Time in the West, the X-files(but not season 2!), the Legend of Zelda series, the Gorillaz, Avatar the Last Airbender, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey.
I really hate season 2.
So if you're still reading this and you want to drop me a line, feel free! PM me, give me a request, leave me a comment, I'm not picky. It may take awhile to get back to you but I will. ^^
