I love animals, and am deeply interested in animal welfare; that is my cause of choice. Unfortunately, I'm not really in a good position to have any pets right now, but I've successfully raised dogs, cats, and rats.
I drink sometimes - there's not really much else to do in Himeji! But I can easily live without alcohol and am capable of going a long time without drinking if I don't end up in a social situation that that calls for it. I'm still a total lightweight though...
I want to travel the world and experience life in other countries and have a lot of adventures. My biggest fear is getting stuck in a rut and living a life of monotony.
I am a fairly straightforward, simple person. That does not mean I'm shallow or stupid or boring, just that I try to avoid making things needlessly complicated. I know who am I, what I like, and how I feel. What you see is what you get with me; I don't hold hidden grudges or use passive-aggressive tactics to get what I want. I am actually pretty eccentric, with some admittedly odd hobbies and viewpoints, but I am also stable and happy, with a lot to offer.
being a friend (god that sounds cheesy)
Oh, and Twilight is absolutely atrocious in terms of prose quality and viewpoint.
