Feel free to converse with me about any of these things or tell me a little about yourself. I’m open.
I like lasagna, but I hate spaghetti.
I like anime/manga, but I’m very picky about them.
I used to play basketball.
Video games have a special place in my heart.
Okami is my favorite game of all time. I can and have played it through multiple times. That game changed my life.
I am a geology major with a minor in geochemistry.
I like drawing, but I can rarely find the time.
I like writing, but, as before, I can’t find much time. I’ll usually write over drawing because I can have a product faster.
I have a conflicted personality. A lot of what I say and do has gone under intense scrutiny in my head beforehand (my academic adviser has called me, “one of a kind,” because I have both a scientific mind and a creative/no boundaries mind).
I was a victim of mental, emotional, and physical abuse.
I make abuse jokes (I take time, place, and audience into account first).
I used to work at a movie theater.
I have entertaining stories from that theater.
I now work/volunteer in a paleolimnology lab.
I have bland stories from the lab.
I was a witness to a shoot-out where the gunmen stood a few feet from each other and missed every shot. I watched while drinking a glass of iced tea. It was amusing. I laughed so hard that when the police showed up, they thought I had been shot.
I am currently taking two English classes that I think will blow my mind before the semester is over.
I am more in touch with my “masculine” traits than my feminine traits and have been since the day I could form memories.
I have legitimate insomnia. Three professionals diagnosed me with it.
If I don’t score a perfect, I consider it a failure.
I have depression. Deep down, I know that depression is an illness and that I shouldn’t be ashamed, but my stubborn side thinks that I am smart and strong enough to overcome depression without medication.
I eventually stopped taking my antidepression medicine cold-turkey. It was one of the top five worst mistakes I have ever made in my life. If you are on antidepressants, do not stop taking them, no matter what you think.
I have not gone back to medication (yet). I don’t know if I will. Maybe if it gets to be too much, but until then, I think I’m okay. Depression is a roller coaster ride. I’ll hit the bottom someday.
I love tortillas. Just tortillas. Nothing else on them.
I like a wide variety of music. My mood dictates the genre I will listen to.
I like spiders and I will not kill them. I either leave them be or relocate them.
I can’t bring myself to kill any creature on purpose. It makes me feel horrible.
