Just started watching Anime last summer after my best friend begging my to watch. I thought it was geeky, but after one episode of Fruits Basket (my first) i was hooked :)
Im a pretty well-rounded person i enjoy:
Drawing (though im not all that good)
Animals (volunteering at a Cat rescue Orginization)
Volleyball and tennis ( I suck at this too)
Piano (hopefully I will be able to learn to play this summer)
And a of bunch other stuff
All in all, im glad my best friend was able to covince me to get into anime, because its great!
Happy Happy Happy Watching!
