Hello, everyone! My name is Elín, and I'm a 16 year old girl from Iceland.
I'm a student striving to be a graphic designer.
I‘m just your average semi-nerdy socially awkward teenage girl. I usually don‘t initiate conversations with people, but when people seem to have enough interest in me to send me a message I get extremely happy and of course I reply. Seriously, it can make my day.
I really love animation, and anime in particular. It doesn‘t matter if it‘s a bad or good series, I‘m kind of guaranteed to like it in someway, anyway. I grew up with the animated series of Pokémon, which I hold dear to my heart even to this day. I remember watching it all the time and everyone was collecting the trading cards at the time. Ahh, those were the good times...
When I turned into a tween, I completely denied anything nerdy for a few years, but at the same time I was in the middle of a diagnosis process for a disease. Though I stopped being a prep after I got diagnosed, my condition just kept getting worse I stopped going to school and stayed in my room doing nothing, because I didn‘t have the energy to do anything worthwhile. All that alone time kindled my interest in the world wide web, and as I‘ve always liked drawing I took interest in the manga art style. That helped rekindle my interest in anime, and just animation and cartoons in general. It also made me interested in Japanese culture in general.
I started watching dubbed versions of many series, that I continuously dropped though. I also started reading manga, the first being Fruits Basket which is still my favorite manga today.
I feel that anime has truly enhanced my life, and made it something more special. It‘s kind of my getaway, and that thing I waste time on when I have no energy to spare for anything else. Because of me, trying to grow up too fast, and because of my illness, I‘ve been trying to make up for my lost childhood, and anime is filling up that empty gap perfectly, and also introducing other new and interesting things!
This shizz was made from cupcakedreams' blood, sweat and tears.
