Julie took this picture on New Year's Eve [Dec 31 2011] right before we went to Great Falls. My Creative Writing Class requires a self-portrait, drawn or photographed, for the final project, and we had a photo-shoot for that and I stole this picture for the dA ID. I am fake-working on the dinosaur picture here. Ickkk it looks like I am wearing crappy eye makeup... I don't wear makeup, I am too lazy. Au naturel, dahlings!
Also that blobby thing in the background, yeah, that is mah fishy. I am in front of the 90g. I have a 30g on the other floor with even MORE FISHIES.
Now, for some things about me that no one cares about...
I like maggots, if it wasn't immediately evident by my icon. They fascinate me. The only animals I like more than them are sharks.
I love gory movies and violent things, though I never kill bugs and I'm a vegan. [That's right, one of the obnoxious beasts who read the nutrition label of everything and are super picky. I won't get preachy on you unless you diss my health-snob things or make one of those 'EHMAGAWSH THOOO PRO ANIMAL RIGHTS' -eating meat at the time- comments]. Anyway, step on an insect when I'm around and I will smack you, and I do NOT want to hear anyone telling me why I should go back to eating meat. I am what I am, live with it.
I have a secret love for bagpipe music [if it's played WELL, anyway].
I like Star Trek even though I hardly ever get time to watch it. Maddie and I went to the 2012 Comic Con and got star trek pins. I have the Kirk one and I put it on a necklace chain and I wear it every day as a statement of my freakin NERDINESS as if the history books I drag around everywhere are not indicative enough.
Gawsh dayum I am ready for college already. 9 1/2 more months!
I hate dolphins, they piss me off.
I bike to school school because I am a badass and all that biking up hills works the buns. But I do have my license.
I'm really cynical and unemotional, and a lot of people translate my apathetic tone as 'attitude'.
I'm a pack rat. This problem has persisted since elementary school, when my cubby was absolutely OVERFLOWING with stuff that I found on the floor and stowed away. The habit has never left me, and one of these days you are going to find me on that hoarders TV show... but for now, I will just save my old things and keep picking up new things. (:<
The word feeling and any words derived from it irritate the living shit out of me for no explainable reason.
I wear a watch at almost all times. I can't STAND not knowing what time it is.
Brand name stores are annoying - Abercrombie, Aeropostale, Hollister, etc. Go away.
As my dA name implies, I love scuba diving, and I have been to Key Largo three times and Curacao once. Plus countless trips to Dutch Springs, though mostly for training / freezing to death / chillin' with the bass
I am an atheist. As with veganism, I do not attack others unless they start throwing crap first.
I LOVE CHESS!!!
Nonfiction history books are THE SHIT YO. Especially modern history. ESPECIALLY modern United States' foreign policy. I like China, modern Latin America, and the British Raj as well.
I'm a bit of an environmental nut at times. ....well, okay, let's be serious here, pretty much all of the time.
I abhor team-building activities. These include [but are not limited to] the Human Knot, the Trust Fall, and that vile thing where everyone stands on a tarp and the goal is to flip it over with everyone still on it and never touch the floor. So basically everyone just stands around and yells at each other and nothing gets done and it's a massive waste of time. Just give me a moment here... THE RAGE.
And in case you're wondering about the webcam - that would so be me.
Favourite Visual Artist
I mostly read n-f history books, I like pretty much everything to some extent but definitely modern U.S. foreign policy is the focus
For fiction, Stephen King, but I don't read fiction much; nonfiction, William Manchester... LOVE. <3
It's been a while since I've been on here. Please disregard every journal I ever wrote, ever! What a disaster! Let's start over, those of you who are left (I think that's no one).
New interesting things that I can summarize quickly because I have a physical chemistry exam to study for:
- I am a double major in environmental science and biochemistry in my 4th out of 5 years (but i am ready to get OUT OF HERE i HATE SMALL TOWNS... one more year, I'll milk it for all its Worth)
- I recently won the gold prize in a Chinese proficiency/speech competition and with it got a full scholarship to get my masters at Nanjing University (most well-known
I haven't been on this site in ages but I figured I might as well update this ole thing for past time's sake (though will anyone read it?? question of the year!!) I haven't drawn much since I have been so busy. I learned Hindi to as high of a proficiency as I realistically could until I got worn out by people always preferring to speak in English (though I can kinda see why, in retrospect, since Hindi has a pretty limited vocabulary compared to other languages) and I started learning Chinese and I am madly IN LOVE. I changed my major to a more rigorous one and my life is finally going somewhere. This summer I am at my university and I have tw
...it has been a long time...
Now time for a brief ramble about college before I get back to writing my research paper. I will dump some submissions on here later. I have not done much art, since I have been too busy turning into an Indian person. Hindi and Urdu consume most of my spare time, the majority of my friends are Indian or Pakistani [interesting combination right, mention Kashmir and they spontaneously combust], and this weekend is inter-MSA [Muslim Student Association] and my school is hosting, HOLLA, lots of Urdu practice on the horizon. I can speak Hindi and Urdu now, like actually SPEAK them [start of the year I could barely say
