My self-summary
-- Profile hasn't been updated in a couple of years. Under construction! --

Hello there!

I'm generally a fairly freindly person. Some people have asked me how I stay so cheery in the past. I'm open-minded for the most part, and love video games of varying kinds, though I have to say my favorite at the moment is Borderlands 2. I love to be silly, ridiculous, outrageous, etc. But I find it's easier when people around me let loose and do the same. I love terrible and cheesey jokes, hanging around with friends, listening to music, dancing ( especially belly dancing, though I don't really have the money for it at the moment, sadly ) or wandering around ( either in real life or in various video games ) with friends and chatting with friends. As you may have guessed, I'm a tad bit geeky as well.

My passion in life is to create, whether it's writing, crocheting, sewing, cooking or baking, creating jewelry ( mostly beaded, wire & bead, chainmaille, though I'm trying to get into other types as well ). I love writing short stories, novels, and participating in NaNoWriMo ( National Novel Writer's Month ). I'm also attempting to get into making my own soaps, among other things.

That's about it, folks. If you want to know more, just send me a message!

I am silly, cuddly, and open-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working and going to school. That's the boring part, but a girl's gotta eat, right?

I'm trying to get back into the creative side of my life: writing stories, making things like jewelry, knitted or crocheted stuff. Just making things in general.
I’m really good at
Listening. I'm normally that friend that people can come to to simply vent about their frustrations. I'll try to help if I can, but if nothing else, I'll listen.

I've also had people compliment my writing before, and some of it I'm quite proud of.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a natural redhead, so that could be it. I don't really know, I don't ask much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore ( Really, just about anything by Christopher Moore. He's amazing! ), Sabriel by Garth Nix, The Hunger Games series ( Consisting of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay ) by Suzanne Collins, The Red Queen series ( Consisting, thus far, of Red Queen, Glass Sword, and King's Cage ) by Victoria Aveyard.

Movies: Pitch Perfect, Love, Actually, Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, more to come.

TV Shows: Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, Lost Girl, MacGuyver, Rizzoli & Isles, Criminal Minds, the British version of Being Human ( but only through Season 3 ), Emerald City, Leverage, etc.

Music: Pentatonix, Lindsey Stirling, Starbomb, David Guetta, Ephixa, Meghan Trainor, ERock, pretty much anything that makes me want to move.

Foods: Need to think more about this one. My favorite ice cream flavor is Mint Chocolate Chip.

Games: Summoners War: Sky Arena, Stardew Valley, The Secret World, Xenogears, Borderlands or Borderlands 2, Minecraft, Dungeon Defenders, Crypt of the NecroDancer, Final Fantasy XIV. Used to play World of Warcraft, but I haven't played in years now. Anything with a subscription I'm much less likely to play these days.
Six things I could never do without
- Friends
- Computer
- Internet
- Books
- Sustinance
- Shelter

( Not necessarily in that order )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories I'm writing, things I want to make, video games I play, situations with friends, where I want to go with my life, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no real typical Friday night. I could be working, I could be out with friends, or I could be in either working on homework or playing video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm normally pretty open. If you want to know anything, feel free to ask. If I'm not comfortable answering, I'll just tell you that instead.

I talk to my cat, even though she's deaf. Does that count?
You should message me if
You're interested in making a new friend, and / or feel like you and I would get along well.
