Hi. I'm Katie. I'm 27, Canadian. I live in Toronto with my partner of eight years and our two cats.
I have a degree in psychology and am just about finished my post-grad in child and youth work! I'm interested in continuing my education in counselling or maybe ECE afterwards, but am also pretty keen on starting a family, so we'll see what happens.
I've been here on Gaia since I was 15 and found LD/LI very beneficial to me then. I have stuck around to pay it forward. Feel free to shoot me a friend request or PM any time. I'm open-minded (LGBTQ advocate), non-judgmental, and a pretty good listener.
I like fitness. I particularly like martial arts and have practiced for over 15 years in a variety of disciplines. I was doing muay thai about five days a week for the last six months but am now more broke than I've ever been so I need to take a break until I'm done school. I'm also into scuba diving and photography.
I study Japanese for fun. It would have been my minor if my university had had enough classes for it. I've been planning to visit Japan for ages but it's been very hard to save while in school. =( Some day!
I'm not much of a fangirl, but I quietly obsess over Harry Potter.
I enjoyed them for what they were, but I didn't feel like they were as strong as seasons 1-3. I had fun to watching the series come full-circle, but I just haven't gotten too into newer animation styles in animes the past few years. And... I miss David Moo as Xellos. crying
Really a fan of traditional cel animation, and I own a couple art cels w/ douga sketches from the original series! Here they are in floating frames:
