I am a relaxed person by nature, and I enjoy going with the flow until it comes time to go against it. It's very difficult to offend me, and even more difficult to make me angry. I have a sense of humor that runs the gamut, from stupid and silly, to sarcastic and biting.
I was named after William the Conquerer because I was born with bright red hair and my mom is a nerd for British history. The hair has since changed, but my desire to conquer England has not.
I have been drawing since I was capable of holding a crayon, and painting once I had learned it wasn't supposed to be eaten. While my art has shifted more towards the digital realm as of late, I still try to make time for the fine arts. I go through several sketchbooks a year, and I go slightly mad if I am without a drawing apparatus of some kind for any length of time.
Equal to this is my fascination with the written word that, were it a physical being, restraining orders might need to be issued. I love everything about books - the feel, the sight, the smell, and, if I am being truly candid, occasionally the taste. I am saddened by the lack of appreciation given the Oxford comma. I await book releases with the giddy anticipation of a child promised candy.
Boredom terrifies me; I keep my mind occupied, when I can, a habit which has led me to learning for the pure enjoyment of it. Philosophy, history, science, art, psychology... I devour them, reading everything, experiencing everything, yet still craving more. I learn the most by talking to people who know things I don't, who know more than me; if I have messaged you, chances are that conversation is one of the primary reasons.
