My name is Kara Ogata. Pleased to meet you!
I'm a MtF Transgender, and aiming at Transexual if I can ever work up the money. I would greatly prefer if people used female pronouns when addressing me. Please and thank you ^.^
I'm Pan-Sexual, and Pan-Romantic. I'm not dating, currently.
I think that covers those, so on to other things.
I am, despite my constant grumbling about people, a people person. I'm also a very physical-contact oriented person. I like hugs, pokes, cuddles, holding, things like that. Sorry if I bother you with it. I know I don't have the best control ._. But I'm very friendly, and if you say hello, I'll say hello back! I'm not easily offended, so as long as you don't try to offend me, you won't. I'm also pretty open about pretty much anything. Very, very little in the way of conversational topics will bother me. Feel free to ask any and all questions. ^.^
Hm. Let's see, I dabble in Bass, both Electric and Contra/Double, Guitar, both Electric and Acoustic, a little bit of drumming, and very, very little Piano/Keyboard.
I draw, mostly electronically, (and by that I mean on my phone. IbisPaintX is my preferred application. It's pretty neato.) I do draw pencil/paper, I suck at paints of any sort, chalk and charcoal end up being more mess than anything in my hands. Color pencils are my favorite for coloring paper drawings. I'm trying to learn how to sew, if I can ever get myself to try something more serious than a little coin purse.
I tell stories. Lots of them. To myself. I write a lot of stories, and usually they never see the light of day, which is okay because some of them can get a little... well, let's say I wouldn't want any psychiatrist to read them, partly because they'd probably read into it in the worst way possible, and partly because they might not read into it at all, and just lock me up or kick me out.
Of course, I might just be viewing things from a skewed perspective. Ah well.
The point was, I write a lot, and therefore enjoy role-playing quite a bit. Also, language is a big interest. I'm one of those linguistics nerds. (Or, as most people call me, a Grammar Nazi.) I will get extremely nit-picky. But I'm pretty good at keeping it to myself. Forgive me if a little bit slips out every now and again.
I also read a lot, either a cause or an effect, or both, of writing a lot.
And, despite my insistence in using the correct words for things, I'm surprisingly uncreative in my speech. Awesome gets used more times than most other words. Sweet comes up quite a bit. Cool. Wicked is more reserved, but still pretty common. I also grunt or hmm often. Please don't take this as a sign that I'm not listening or am uninterested.
Hmm. Oh. Parkour. I do that. Quite often. It's one of the most fun things I can think to do. I think it's partially the feeling of flying through the air, weightless for less than a second, and partially it's the skill and beauty involved. It's incredible tricky, but when one gets a move right, not only do they feel it, everyone around them can see it. It's incredibly exhilarating, even just doing simple things like vaulting over railings or tables, when you do them as precisely as possible.
Last, and probably least is gaming. I do that a lot too. ._.
I'm not exactly proud of being such an avid gamer, because I know I could do many, many more things if I just set my damned laptop down for a while and went to do things.
But yeah, I play Warframe, lots and lots of Warframe. (Valkyr all the way!)
My favorite series in videogaming is probably Mirror's Edge, with Metroid right behind it. NieR Gestalt was a goddamn masterpiece, and the only game to make me tear up. I mean ever. Kirby games are always fun, and that little pink puffbal is so friggin adorable!
That's most of what I do in my free time, of which I have quite a bit as of now. No more school, at least for a long while.
Other things I like;
Anime/Manga, mostly Manga as I prefer reading to watching. List in the Interest Panel.
Tea. I drink copious amounts of tea.
Music; Mostly various forms of Metal/Rock, New-age/Trance/Electronic/Ambient, weird, so-far-outta-left-field-it-hurts stuff. List in Interest Panel.
The Universe; This is a weird thing to explain. I like learning about anything and everything. Our Universe is infinite, or so impossibly large it's hard to imagine it as anything other than infinite. (Which is weird. Endless is easier to grasp than the size of our Universe? Damn.) Anyways, it's infinite. And that means there's no end to the things left undiscovered and unknown, things to learn and understand. I like to understand things. I think that's why people can bother me so much ._. But yeah, whenever there's a news article about, say, those pictures of Pluto we (The Human Race) took recently, I am all over it. That stuff is insanely cool.
Tattoos are friggin sweet. I wouldn't mind getting covered in tattoos. Piercings are cool but far less practical, so I don't know how many of those I'll be getting. Maybe some earrings, (a lot of them,) maybe a tongue piercing. Maybe.
Physical appearances are, surprisingly enough, pretty important to me. Not like brand-names or price of clothing, though buying something that's several hundred dollars has never made sense to me. And I hate it when people make any sort of distinction based on skin color. Seriously, just because someone's skin is a certain color does NOT mean they act a certain way. And I don't mean I care if someone's aesthetically pleasing or displeasing. I value people for themselves. But I like thinking up new clothing pieces, and if I could get into sewing, I would totally make the things I think up. I like bright/pretty hairstyles, I like the way certain combinations of physical traits can be appealing. The human form is incredibly beautiful.
Hm. Oh. Well, guess I can throw this out there; Sex is both unimportant and important to me. Weird, I know, but what I mean is this; Sex, to me, is just an activity. Sure, it's a pretty important activity in the long run, as the growth of the human population is something we are hard-coded to strive for, and we do need children to grow and replace us, because we'll all die some day.
However, comma, Sex to me doesn't really equate love. It's not special in that regard. Now, practicing safety and stuff is still an important thing to do, but I never understood why people got angry when their romantic partner had sex with someone else.
That being said, no, will not have sex with just anyone. Partially because I reserve the right to choose who I bang.
I can't think of anything else. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask, I swear I won't be offended in 99% of cases.
