AboutI was born April 30, 1988.
That makes me a Taurus and a Dragon who was born on Beltane.
I've recently finished my undergrad studies earning myself a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Honors Specialization Psychology.
If I were rich it would have been in Philosophy instead, because apparently that's where my passion lies.
Sadly, philosophy isn't a profession you can just practice anymore... not and earn money, at least.
I currently have three cats (Andromeda, Gabriel, and Tzerbinetta), one dog (Tharkay) and a pony (Twinkle).
Yes, I live an a rural area so we have lots of space for all of the critters.
Other than the animals I live alone with my mother, and I've promised to stay for at least another two years. She wasn't expecting to be alone when I move out, but with my Father gone I really don't want to leave her alone. He died in march of this year (2010) from a heart attack... well from the lack of oxygen to his brain due to the heart attack leading to severe brain damage...
Let's see, that's birth, school, pets and family... now career?
I'd like to eventually be doing animal assisted therapy with children.
Hobbies and Interests?
I enjoy singing, though I'm not very good at it, well, I don't have a very good voice. I used to be on my highschool archery team and I really miss it. Likewise I took riding lessons for years and years but I haven't been able to find a place to ride at for a while. During the summer I like to attend renaissance/medieval/pirate/faery festivals and faires and I try to come up with different garb for each one. My mum is a fantastic resource for this... she has all the best costume jewellery and accessories, and she's good for a second opinion before I sew anything. I would love to be one of the actors at these some time... or join one of the local medieval weapons associations/groups. I like swords, k?
Other than that I love to read, I have since I was little. Blame my parents, they read Tolkein to me at bedtime. My favourite books are science fiction and fantasy. My favourite series is currently the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik, it's about the Napoleonic era with dragons. Very easy to read with beautifully written characters and relationships (not a romance). I also enjoy manga and anime (FMA, Bleach, XxxHolic, Tsubasa, CCS, Kuroshitsuji, 1/2 Prince) with a slight preference for manga...
I spend most of my time, however, reading fanfiction. Yep, I'm one of those...
My faves are Harry Potter, Star Wars, ATLA, Lotr, and Bleach.
I love Avi art and stories written about avis.
Here's a link to my journal with a story I had written about my avi (includes illustrations!)
If you go to the previous entry you can see most of the avi art I have recieved (gifts and commisions).
