I'm just a girl finding a way to cope with the hardships of life.
Anime, books, music, manga, some television shows, several video games, and many films have been my escape and sanctuary in my times of need.
I am art and logic, both sides of myself struggling for control. My creative side flows free, yet is raw and unorganized. I love to paint, write, make jewelry, and mess around with digital art (I like making graphics, gifs, and attempting to draw things). My logical side is just as free, and I demonstrate my intellect even when I try not to. I'm always being commented on how creative and how intelligent I am. People are surprised when they find out that I love the things I love, they don't really expect it I guess. I've always loved the things I love though, so it's not really surprising to me. I have two tumblogs and a gaia, so maybe I'll share those if you want/ask.
I don't really have set favourites when it comes to genres of anime or manga. It really depends on my mood or what I'm feeling like watching at the time. I do enjoy comedy, romance, slice of life, school life, supernatural, mystery, reverse harem, adventure, and magical girl types of anime and manga. As long as the story is captivating and the characters compelling, I will most likely get into it. I also am likely to get into an anime if the soundtrack is wonderful. As a former music student (I play the flute, but also clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, piccolo, and oboe) and someone who loves soundtracks, scores, and classical (and sub genres of classical music) music, I always find myself listening to the background music of a film, video game, show, or anime just as much as the dialogue between the characters.
I'm shy, but really warm, kind, and friendly once you get to know me as a friend. I am loyal (probably to a fault because people take advantage of that), honest (brutally and bluntly, so you won't find any sugar coated words here), and compassionate, but I am also introverted and have a lack of trust in people. I have had numerous experiences in my life that have turned me into someone who has a general mistrust in people, most find it frustrating, but I really can't help it. I tend to withdraw and distance myself from people who care about me (that I also care about) from time to time. I don't really know why. I do spend a great deal of my time alone, so maybe that's a contributing factor. I contradict myself in nature; I want affection, interaction, and communication, and yet at the same time, I don't want just anyone's affection, and I usually want to be alone when I'm in social situations.
