- Song Of The Day - "The scenes within my memories,
There beyond my eyelids,
Are weakening... like a faint mirage.
My fingers barely brush them.
If I could have lived
Never knowing pain and sadness,
Could I have kept from realizing
This warmth inside my chest?"

- How I Got Started On Anime - "It was so sudden. There's always something wonderful happening everyday."
After watching Pokémon and other animated shows all of my childhood I pretty much abandoned the medium altogether pretty early on because of my family's taste in TV and movies. At the age of ten my favourite movie was Good Will Hunting and I gave in to the misconception that anime is childish.
In the summer of 2013, I visited my family in Texas. My cousin, who I'm close to, introduced me to her best friend. I hit it off really well with him and the three of us began watching Ouran Host Club, which I now consider my 'first' anime. To keep in contact with them, I took up watching anime with them via Skype calls, starting with Shingeki no Kyojin and EVA. Amazed by both the depth in artwork and storytelling of these two titles, I decided to watch one on my own: Clannad.
Some tears later, here I am now: hopelessly captured by the many colours and stories of anime.

- About Me - "I don't want to say: I was happy at that time.
I would say: I was happy at that time too, just like I am now."
☆ I share a birthday with Kurisu Makise. ☆I'm a university graduate that studied computer science and biology. ☆My personality type is INFP ☆I used to be big FPS player, but really all that I still play on console are sports games. ☆I used to be a moderator on the EA UK FIFA Forum, but it is a rarity I dust off my console. ☆My favourite games are FIFA, Overwatch, League of Legends, Halo, Pokémon, and SSBM. ☆I play soccer regularly and my favourite team is Manchester United. ☆I also used to run XC and play basketball competitively in HS. My favourite team is the Dallas Mavericks. ☆I listen to just about anything English except for metal/screamo, as well as Japanese/Korean music. ☆I love Taylor Swift and oldies (80's and 90's pop/rock). ☆I love movies, but, lately, I don't watch as many as I feel like the quality is going downhill (Letterboxd). ☆Favourites include Good Will Hunting, 50/50, Pretty Woman, The Departed, Four Weddings and a Funeral. ☆My taste in TV is greatly influenced by my parents: Three's Company, House, Friends, and Grey's Anatomy. ☆I read far too fast and I burn through books at an unsustainable rate financially. ☆My favourite books include: The Art of Racing in the Rain, Kite Runner, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, The Name of the Wind, An Abundance of Katherines, Lioness Quartet, Millenium Trilogy, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Hamlet, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, The Alchemist, Pride and Prejudice, and The Great Gatsby. ☆I love to draw and paint. I failed art in grade three and was forced to stay after-school to trace lines and do colouring pages to work on my fine motor skills. It still is kind of a funny and embarrassing story. ☆Here's an album of some of my better recent drawings.
