My name is Anna, and I'm 19 years old as of November 14. I am not currently in college; I'm taking a semester off for personal reasons. I live in Georgia.
And I really, really, REALLY hate the colors orange and purple, annoying people, and fish (the food, that is. I have fish as pets, actually, so obviously I have nothing against them.)
Yeah. But I really love dogs, white and blue, and pasta. My favorite foods in the whole wide world are bologna, lasagna, and stuffing (yes, like Thanksgiving stuffing).
I hate haters. In case you don't know what that means, let me elaborate: I hate people who hate things for stupid reasons.
I like Twilight. I appreciate different stories for what they are: different stories. So I don't hate on the fact that they sparkle unlike OTHER vampires.
I like to read. I really, REALLY like to read. Love, really. So much that I'm making writing my life's passion. I'm attending college with my major in English and my minor in creative writing. I hope to become a screenwriter, but if that doesn't happen, then I hope to at least become an author.
I am really ADHD and ADD. Yes, it's possible to have both. I also have them both severely. I would be classified as having "adult ADHD". I'm one of the worst out there concerning the two. I've been on medicine since I was in at least third grade. At least, that's the earliest I can remember having it.
I have iron deficiency anemia. I'm currently not taking iron pills, so I have to deal with all of the symptoms, like headaches, difficulty concentrating (but that might be the ADHD), shortness of breath, cold hands and feet (which means I'm always bundled up in blankets and wearing lots of socks), dizziness, pale skin (that much I don't mind, I like being pale), easy fatigue and loss of energy (explaining why I can sometimes sleep 15 hours straight), leg cramps (the worst part), and insomnia. Sometimes I get hallucinations, too.
I am online almost 24/7. If I'm not online, then there's probably a reason for it.
Like, a serious reason, and you should be concerned.
Unless I'm back within a few hours, that is. Otherwise be VERY VERY CONCERNED. Unless it's a Monday or Wednesday after two PM. Then I'm probably out with the LARPing club.
I LOVE LARPing. OK, go ahead, say it's crazy, but I love it. I love fighting people, and it's a great source of exercise! If you like going to Renaissance fairs, you might enjoy it.
I will admit it: I crave attention, and control. I've gone so far that I refuse to join other people's RPs or RP guilds because I want to remain in control so badly that the only RPs I do are made by myself.
That brings me to my next topic. I really love RPing. I've been doing it since I was like, 11. I'm a really artsy person, so I like reading, writing, baking, and drawing. And fortunately, unlike some people, I'm gifted with at least a little talent in these things.
That's another thing. If you show me your artwork, I will not hesitate to criticize it, whether you want me to or not. I try to hold back my opinions at times, but thanks to my ADHD, ADD, and the fact that I am socially awkward, I can say things I don't mean.
Yes, I say things I don't mean a lot of the time. And I'm sorry for that. Unless I say I'm not sorry for it, in which case...
I'm probably still sorry for it.
I cry. A lot. I'm not afraid to tell you that I was crying over something you said, either. That or something else, but I'll tell you if you caused it or not.
Some people call me strong because of all the crap I put up with. But on the inside I feel like I can't handle all of the stupid things I have to deal with day by day.
I'm used to be really depressed, but ever since I started college (well, maybe once I got a few weeks in), I've been having the time of my life. I love my life, even if my mom is always texting me to go do something productive (procrastination master right here).
I really like the Hunger Games. (Yes, I know, totally a change of topics. But like I said...ADHD). I really, really like the Hunger Games. I have two posters and a bunch of school supplies of them, I own the movie on Blu-Ray, I have a digital copy of it (which has been uploaded to iTunes, so I can watch it on my iPod any time, even if I don't have internet connection). I also LOVE Frozen. It's my new go-to movie (and go-to soundtrack). I've even set it as my desktop wallpaper--something that Hunger Games hasn't claimed in my life.
I recently started learning archery, but not because of the Hunger Games. I wanted to learn it long before I even read those books. Thanks to the LARPing club, I own my own long bow (and Amtgard [the game I play] safe arrows). I practice every Monday, Wednesday, and sometimes even on the weekends; right now I'm a level two archer (I was really excited when I leveled up).
I really like weapons for some reason. I own three daggers, a hunting knife in the shape of an axe (I know, really confusing), four katanas, a short sword, three swords, a machete, and a naginata. Now that I know how to LARP, owning these weapons makes me feel a lot more dangerous, and I kinda don't trust myself with them as much... as such, I now only keep my axe, all of my daggers, three of my katanas, and my short sword in my room.
I really like going to renaissance festivals, too. I have my own outfit and everything. I'm currently working on my next outfit. Since I'm now a LARPer, I took my Renaissance outfit and turned the skirt into a dress (so it can now be worn as both a long skirt and a dress, with the rest of the outfit over it so it's a skirt that I can run in). I'm working on making my own garb, but so far all I've made was a cloak (but it did win in an A&S [arts&science] tourney over two, much more experienced LARPers/garbers! I was very proud of myself!)
I do not like nekos or any other half-human half-animal thing. It's weird. It is way too freaking weird. And I just don't like it.
I do like anime. One of my favorites is Blood+. I rewatch my animes a lot. I also like Angel Beats, Full Moon wo Sagashite, Shugo Chara, and some others that I can't recall at this time.
So. Yeah. I think I'm going to end it there because I have a feeling I typed a lot. Later.
