Hi <3 My name is Emily, but you can call me 'Rii' (it's short for my Japanese name 'E-mi-rii'), Irie, Iri, Iris, etc. I am from New Jersey.
My interests include the study of medicine (anatomy and physiology, and disease processes, specifically), creating music, creative writing, video games, cooking (learning how to), learning new languages (I've studied Japanese, Spanish, American Sign Language and Yiddish so far), and helping others where and when I can. I also enjoy creating avatars here on Gaia and playing videogames on a semi-regular basis.
I am currently on hiatus from nursing school, although that may change in a bit. Medicine has always been a passion of mine, since I was a child. My father is a very talented and accomplished doctor, and he got me interested at a very young age (at the age of 4 I was already learning the bones of the human body, and one of my favorites is the 'patella'). I am focused on studying, and getting a job, in the medical field, even if it doesn't end up being in nursing.
