About me, huh?
Well, the real name's Maggie, and I'm twenty-three, which makes me practically an old woman by Gaia's standards. I have a B.A. in Environmental Science and am currently working on a graduate degree in Library and Information Studies.
I like the Internet a great deal, although I must say I prefer the smaller percentage of the 'net that type properly, is sarcastic without being emo, and can actually hold a decent conversation.
I like meeting new people, and Gaia's been great for expanding my list of new ideas. I am also a self-proclaimed LiveJournal addict, and most of my non-online life is detailed there. I also love message boards of all sizes and shapes, where people discuss things, much like on Gaia. One could call forums my true internet weakness.
I like anime a great deal, but it's something of an expensive hobby - I am a poor college student, after all. My parents aren't the most approving of this hobby of mine, but frankly, I could care less. As far as I'm concerned - the less they know about my life, the better it is for us all.
I like the Final Fantasy series of video games. These are probably the only video games I actually like to play. I don't watch tons of TV - Gilmore Girls and a few Adult Swim anime is about the grand total.
I really like to read, but alas, I haven't read much for pleasure as of late. I need to rectify this, and quickly. I miss my books. ^^
I'm fairly soft-spoken and shy until I feel comfortable around someone I just met. I procrastinate more than I used to and have a definite sweet-tooth that is a major weakness of mine. I love dolphins, and dislike spiders. I'm afraid of heights. I'm allergic to cats, although I desperately wish I wasn't. Birds are beautiful creatures, even though I never want to fly like them.
I like the Harry Potter series, and will defend Remus Lupin, Hermione Granger, and Nymphadora Tonks till the very end. I own an insane amount of DVDs, and I sometimes wish I had artistic talent. I ramble too much and like to sleep too much.
That's me in a nutshell. Hope I didn't scare you all too badly. ^^;
