And, now, on to the main profile!
Hey, there! For those who are stumbling onto my page, I'd love to get to know you! After all, I'm sure you'll find a wonderful friend in me!
Now for the profile: I'm just a simple young lady from a little town in Texas, but I have very big dreams of becoming an animator one day (I also have plans of taking up other careers at the same time--most of these are related to art, music, literature, film / television, & other things); one of my many goals is to make film versions of my currently-unofficial Disney sequels, "The Great Mouse Detective 2: A New Beginning" & "The Rescuers 3: The Great Adventure", as well as several other movie projects (sequels, prequels, remakes, & original stuff). If you can't already tell, I am obsessed with all things related to film & animation, & I have a wide variety of tastes that some of you may find rather interesting. In fact, I have often been called a die-hard--& even rabid--fan, which I personally think is rather appropriate. (giggles) I am a voracious film / television buff, & I will often find favor or fondness with movies or TV shows that other people may not like, so I just thought I'd give you a word of caution--don't be surprised if I start writing about "ChalkZone" or the "Cat People" remake in the near future. And while we're on the subject, if you don't agree with my tastes, that is perfectly fine; as long as you can communicate with me on a tactful & diplomatic level, & not try to disrespect my opinions, I don't think we'll have any problems. (smile)
I have Asperger's Syndrome, which--for those who don't know--is a high-functioning form of autism. I am extremely amiable & willing to make friends of all kinds (in fact, I quite enjoy doing so!). In addition to being a film / television buff, I am also an equally-voracious bookworm, artist, author, musician, & what-have-you-not. I am very diplomatic, & I try my best to keep an open mind at all times. I'm also very sweet, caring, devoted to my passions & my friends, adventurous, curious, childlike, imaginative, fun-loving, playful, spunky, lively, dramatic, & a whole bunch of other adjectives that I think would be too much to list!
