What I’m doing with my life
I was once on a quest to finish getting my bachelor's degree in Art, more specifically painting; however, it seems my first attempt was for all the wrong reasons, I had gotten distracted by side quests, continuously taking breaks from the main mission, but now I am back at Salisbury University to finish my degree, a little bit augmented on the side of painting rather than drawing. This semester is my final quest, graduating in December.

I spend a large amount of my time with a select few friends or online gaming, I'm a social creature like that. I'm slowly working through a long list of shows, movies, and books that I have procured but haven't gotten around to over the years. I'm currently working on the Legend of Drizzt complete collection.

Most weekends I am involved either with RPGs whether tabletop, pen and paper, online or single player. I take part in others games and create my own worlds to get lost in.

I'm not really an opinionated person, I once was, but I hit a wall about 3 years ago. I wiped my opinions and started over, as I had a discussion with someone that asked why I had opinions. Turns out it started with my opinions, and then I became infected with opinions of other people, and didn't have reasons why i felt so opinionated about things I got defensive about. Now I exist in a realm of listening and coming to conclusions based on the current realms rather than how I felt in the past.

I'm an emotional person. I wear my heart on my sleeve, it's just part of who I am and there's a strength in that. It helps me understand complex emotional issues, and I can channel it towards certain things. Which in turn also helps me put more of myself into the activities that I enjoy.

I'm a blunt and honest person, I don't really like dancing around subjects. I don't do well with flowery words or subtle messages, I prefer straightforward communication. That being said, I know how to hold my tongue if its needed.
I’m really good at
Generosity, caring for others (sometimes at the cost of myself), volunteering, keeping kids entertained, teaching (whether educationally or giving other examples), fingerpainting, making organized messes, thinking outside of the box

Skills:

Bluff - A trained skill that I learned when it was necessary, I try to use the power for good though

Diplomacy - I enjoy debates, resolving differences, and getting information

Handle Animal - I love animals and for the most part they seem to love me. Except bats, been bitten by them twice.

Intimidate - Sort of, it only works when I'm actually and TRULY pissed off, which is kind of extremely rare. I seem to give off an aura of leave me the fuck alone. I would never hit anyone though, its not in my nature.

Knowledge (Nature) - I know a lot of random facts about animals and plants.

Knowledge (Nerd/Geek) - I'm kind of a jack of trades here, know a lot of stuff, just nothing too specific, enough to get by. Games (video, computer, board, tabletop RPG, and Live Action Roleplay), comic books, science fiction, math, nerd pop-culture movies/shows, anime, and computers. Please note: my knowledge of these areas will range from "can listen to you talk with basic understanding and some interest" to "will talk about endlessly".

Sense Motive - I pay attention to the minute details rather than the larger ideas. I also read into body language and emotion better than what is being said to me, helps with knowing what is really going on.

Survival - I was in the scouts in the younger years, I've also done a lot of research on urban and nature survival. While not in practice, I have a lot of knowledge.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my eyes or that i have either paint or marker on me somewhere, or my paleness.

Music
Honestly anything that has rhythm that can be followed, even if I can't understand the words, sadly that excludes screamo, as the screaming and raspy voices get in the way of the musical rifts.

Food
I am annoyingly picky (seriously, it is not fun for me), but I am often able to find something I like at a place. I have a BIT more trouble with small business restaurants rather than chains, but that's mostly because I like to be able to look over a menu beforehand so I'm not all awkward and unable to find something I like to eat. Italian, Thai, American, Mexican, and Chinese are usually the safest bets. Nothing spicy though, and I really don't like sushi, though I don't mind others eating it.
The six things I could never do without
Someone to talk to
Hot showers
Art supplies
Rainy days
Music
Honesty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a solution to a puzzle or what I'm going to eat for lunch, or something completely out of the box
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends, working on an art piece, or watching shows/movies cuddled up in a blanket eating a tub of icecream. Also MTG or D&D with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had scoliosis surgery when I was young.
