My self-summary
ap·par·ent   [uh-par-uhnt, uh-pair-] adjective
capable of being easily perceived or understood; plain or clear; obvious

Don't bother messaging me if you burn anything and inhale the smoke. I'm so done with smokers.

If you're viewing my profile through that ridiculous "rate people" lense, open a new tab and go to
and rate me on that. Honestly, why would you rate someone based only on this stuff when you typically have access to everything else?

I like to describe myself as "down to earth." I don't spend a lot of time thinking about stuff that doesn't really matter. But that doesn't mean I'm boring. I can be playful and goofy.

I'm half mexican, half dutch, pansexual, cisgender, progressive, open-minded.
Live and let live.
Treat others the way you wish to be treated, unless you're really, really masochistic. Then you should ask for consent first.
I hate the government and I think they should all be hanged but I typically vote democratic.
Oh, and I'm not "full figured." I'm fat. If you just grimaced or felt similarly disgusted, read the following:

I am also extremely into politics, equal rights and social justice. Yes, I am a feminist. If you just grimaced or felt similar revulsion, please read the following:

I want to try to keep this short, so if there's anything you want to know about me, please ask. I'm incredibly open to talking about anything.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it and enjoying it.

I'm attending university for Game Design. Got a little under two years left.

Hopefully during the winter 2013 semester I'll start programming my own survival game.
I’m really good at
everything. (Or so I tell myself. It's good to have a healthy ego.)


politics and political activism.

putting things into perspective.

video games. It's a tragedy. I'm so good at video games that nobody wants to play with me.

staying rational when angry.

taking (sincere) criticism.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Trying to keep it short...

Authors: Lynn Flewelling, Karen Miller, Jonathan Stroud

Movies: ALL OF THEM? The only movies I've seen that I didn't really like were A Space Odyssey (sorry, it was incredibly boring), and those stupid "comedies" that involve oversexualized women, stereotypical racist views on people of color, and anything mocking or insulting in the ways of sexuality.
The new superhero movies lately have been great. And then they put a romance subplot into avengers. Ugh.
Favorite old(ish) movies include True Lies and The Matrix. I'll watch Disney and/or Pixar movies any day. Brave was amazing.
Favorite recent(ish) movies include Mad Max: Fury Road (considering it in my top 3), and The Book of Life.

Shows: One Piece, Mushishi, Samurai Champloo, Avatar (AtlA and Korra), Steven Universe

Music: Dubstep, electronic. Country is tolerable. I'm not fond of most rap but I'll try it. Everything else is good.

Food: Anything. Sushi, pasta, chicken, and any kind of vegetables are my favorite. I don't like sausage much. Or kiwi or okra. Kind of tired of beef and plain cooked potatoes. Can't think of much else.

Games: Heroes of Newerth, Minecraft, Team Fortress 2, Super Smash Bros, Left 4 Dead 2, Terraria, Hearthstone
The six things I could never do without
Pretend it says "The six things that mean the most to me" or "are the most important to me"

-My brother. He means the world to me. We're really close and we get along so well that we never really fight.

-A pet. My dog Pepper currently lives with my parents, but I recently adopted a three legged calico who was hit by a car and rescued. Her name is Mooch.

-My best friend, Megan. She lives half the country away from me but we've been friends for over 10 years.

-Alone time/privacy. I think I would explode if I didn't get this once in a while.

Ok, here IS something I don't think I could do without: air conditioning. I hate the heat. I often leave my window open in the winter. Anything over 74 and I'm dying.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a lot of things. Mostly serious things actually. The universe, the state of the world, etc etc.

Also spend a lot of time coming up with fictional stories, game design ideas, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, at the movies, eating out, visiting my parents, who knows. I... am not a party person. I just do whatever I'm in the mood for.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am afflicted with dermatophagia?
I occasionally struggle with depression? (not too bad)
I like porn? (written porn ftw)
I have a vibrator?
I used to be a weeaboo?
You should message me if
-you want to.
-you are interested in getting into volunteering or community service; I'd love to get into that with someone.
-you're good at Heroes of Newerth because damn is it hard to find good players.
-if you're REALLY interested, hit me up on AIM: riyoyukai.
