I think at times I'm half an adult and half a child. I still like to play computer games but I also know that I can't just play those all the time.
The most important thing anybody has to know is that I look after my parents. My mum is half blind and my dad is mentally ill with bad arthritis. It simply means that if I tell you that I can't hang out with you because they need me, it's not an excuse. I believe that looking after them is important and I want to find somebody who can understand and accept that. However, I will try my hardest to make sure that I do have time to be with you.
According to my friends, I am shy, caring, and sweet.
I've studied Japanese at evening classes from 2008-2012. Since these classes are not continuing anymore, I'm starting a new class about Japanese culture instead.
Friends tell me that I'm good when they need somebody to just listen, but in their case it's usually just reading, as most of my friends I talk with are on MSN, as I have friends from different parts of the world.
Also, my hair. I hate having it cut so I just let it grow and it gets pretty long. I think I last had it cut in 2005.
TV shows. Doctor Who, Being Human, Merlin, Torchwood, The Sarah-Jane Adventures, Bonanza, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Neighbours, Coronation Street, Power Rangers, The Simpsons, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Thunderbirds. I also like various cartoons and anime: Cardcaptor Sakura, Digimon, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Yu-Gi-Oh.
For music, I listen to a lot of Japanese music, as it helps me with my studies. I like the music from Sera Myu (which are the Japanese musicals of Sailor Moon) and I'm a big Steps fan.
For books it's varied. I just read things that get my interest. One of my favourite books is One of the Lucky Ones, by Lucy Ching. I'm a big fan of Harry Potter. I'm currently reading the comic book series Runaways.
I like to read manga series too. The Pokemon manga is very good. I also like Sailor Moon, CardCaptor Sakura, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magical x Miracle, Tokyo Mew Mew, Fruits Basket.
Video games! I love Pokemon, Professor Layton, The Sims (1, 2 and 3), Phoenix Wright, Trace Memory. I'm usually logged into Steam, though I don't have many games there.
Food. My favourite meal is tuna pasta bake. I also really like pizza, and I like foreign food, like Chinese and Japanese. I'm willing to try different foods, as long as they don't have anything that I don't like to eat. I have a strange problem with mashed potato, as I can only eat it in Shepherd's Pie. Anything else just makes me ill.
Computer games - Where I go, my Nintendo 3DS goes. I like to carry around a few games with me just in case I feel the need for a little gaming when I'm out and about.
Music - I like listening to music when I'm doing things, such as gaming, reading, writing, etc.
TV - Okay, bit of a TV addict. I like to keep up with my favourite programmes, especially murder mysteries (with my favourite being Diagnosis Murder) and Doctor Who.
My collections of memorabilia from Bonanza and Thunderbirds - I just have always liked to collect things, and Thunderbirds is the one thing that I've collected the most from.
Tissues - Bit of a weird one! I use to have a lot of nosebleeds when I was younger, and they tend to freak me a little just in case I have a really bad one, so I always try and keep a pack of tissues in my bag just in case.
I wonder about my dad's health as winter is coming up and his arthritis gets worse during the cold.
I wonder if I will meet somebody who one day will make me think 'I love this person and I want this relationship to work and maybe grow into something bigger'
I guess the only thing that I'm willing to admit is that I spend far too much time on the Internet. I like to spend hours playing computer games and just general surfing around different websites.
Of course if you're a Pokemon fan, I'd suggest meeting up for a Pokemon battle.
