About[color=black] Hello, everyone! I'm basically just a come-and-go person on Gaia, but I would like to make friends with whomever I can so I can talk to people when I do come on.
There isn't really much that I can say about myself. I've been moving around for quite a while, started University in the fall and have had quite some trouble staying put in one places for so long. I'm quite interested in writing; I hope to become an author when I'm older. For now I just write stories and fanfictions, but I've written a few books (if you can count 50,000 words as novels).
Music has always been a big part of my life. I play the violin and the piano- the piano better than violin. I've tried flute and cello, but couldn't stand not seeing where my fingers were with the flute and hated lugging around that ridiculous cello. But I do enjoy my opera singing the most, but I am almost certain that it will cripple my throat as I grow older. As clichéd as it is, Mozart must be my favourite composer. And I do not rate these things by popularity, mind you. Whichever music moves me the most is the winner of my utmost affections. Neilson has also captured me more than once, his Helios overture in particular, and Bach has also astounded me from time to time. But I think it Tchiakovsky who can very much capture my inner soundtrack for most of the day. Debussy, as well, when I'm feeling complacent. There are many others, but it would be useless to name them. Other types of music inhabit my iPod, as well.
As for languages, moving around requires many. I speak English fluently (obviously), but I'm not sure whether or not my first language was Arabic, English, or German. Anyway, I also speak French, Italian, German and Arabic, also a bit of Latin and Ancient Greek. Not all fluently, of course, but enough to get by.
I had quite a mad go on Gaia, buying everything I could. It's really the first time I've been so obsessed with something so intangible. Yet, now I just come on here to relax and kill time.
I'm currently living in Boston, Massachusetts.
Some of my favourite books are written by Ken Follett, especially 'Pillars of the Earth'. I'm currently reading 'World Without End' and it is <i>amazing</i>. Yet, Donna Tartt's 'The Secret History' is my absolute choice. As for other books, I love the classics. Anne Rice is also a great captivator of my imagination, but I absolutely <i>hate</> the new rise of despicable and ridiculous teen novels about vampires and werewolves which have seem to have sprung up everywhere within the last decade. I mean, really; 'Twilight'? Come now...
If there's anything else, feel free to ask^^
