As for sports, I like swimming, and I like badminton and baseball and dodgeball (but only when I'm playing against people who suck as badly as I do!). I like to write fictional stories that have romance, action, music, comedy, angst, and maybe even some mystery in them, and at the moment I keep getting ideas for Yaoi. I like to read and learn new words from advanced reading, and I like to study and go to school, because my friends are there along with the ausome things I get to learn. I am going to school in America this year (me and my mom travel a lot), and I will be taking Drama, because I might want to be an actress (movies and/or musicals/plays) when I grow up. I mostly want to be a writer, which is why I'm taking writing classes like creative writing during my high school time. I also like singing. I can play piano very well, and can teach myself just about any song I want with practice. I've started recording my piano songs (I also write my own music and songs even though I can't read notes very well) onto my computer. I also have started making animations using Paint and Windows Movie Maker, and then I began making anime music videos with some things my friend showed me. In my spare time I read mangas or go and buy them with the massive amount of money I get per week for babysitting. I also like drawing, though I suck at it, anime characters.
What got me into...
Writing: This is actually kinda funny. When I was little I used to watch Doug (an american saturday morning cartoon) with my friends from these videos my dad sent me, and Doug had this thing where he had his own super hero called Quail Man (it's quail man right?). So I decided to make my own super hero, a stick figure girl with a blue body suit and red cape, and I made them into comics. That's when I started writing story lines, and eventually I started writing fanfictions and then stories.
Anime: My first anime ever watched was Sailor Moon. Who hasn't started off that way? I liked it a lot when I was little, but I didn't even know it was anime. I learned about anime when my cousin convinced me to watch an episode of DragonballZ with him. It was during the Namek Saga where Frieza and Vegeta and all the good guys were all like 'grr' at eachother. I got so hooked on it that I watched it every day, screaming at the proper moments, crying when people died (REAL tears, dammit!), getting excited when certain things happened, predicting this, wishing for that, yata yata yata, and then of course getting the hots for Vegeta and worshiping him through junior high. I mean, when I get hooked, I get HOOKED. I have boxes of dragonballz things in my closet, and stacks of dbz picks that I used to have covering my entire walls like wallpaper that I printed out myself from various websites. I had my own vegeta-worshiping web page, for crying out loud. It was around this time I took up my first pen name, Chikiro No Ouji. Maybe one of you random people out there recognize it...
Manga: Well, the first manga I read (though I didn't know it) was a dragonballZ one, of course, that I got for my birthday. I hadn't really been used to mangas, because I preferred reading American things, and mangas hurt my eyes because they went backwards. I know, I'm pathedic. I'm probably the most American Japanese person there is. Anyway, when I made other anime-obsessed friends, they introduced me to some other mangas, and I finally started buying my own. I think this is also what got me into YAOI, because my suppliers were all obsessed with it (and I do have one gay male friend, who supplied me with most of the YAOI manga I read).
Singing: When I was little, mother had a big black boom box in the living room, and she would play her favorite music (mostly country, odd as it is) really loud. I would dance around the living room with her and sing along with the music, and to this day I can recite an entire country song if it's around ten years old or older.
Musicals: I have a step-sister that was really into musicals. I never realized I liked musicals so much until she started teaching me the dances to some of her favorites. Most of the musicals I watch are ones that she recommends to me.
Acting: When I was very, very little, I took acting classes in a big city somewhere. I always loved the spot light, but I couldn't stand auditions, and so eventually my parents stopped taking me to the classes. I still have trouble with auditions, though being in school musicals and plays have made me more outgoing.
Learning: When I was little, mom was always travelling with me, so she found it easier to home school me than to settle down and send me to public school. Because of this, I learned faster than other kids, and I probably learned more. Mom would never accept any grade lower than a B, and would make me re-do my work if I got B- or lower. Eventually I didn't ever get B- or lower again. I don't think I did until I started school, but that only happens if I'm absent a day or two. Now I make it my goal to have straight A's, because I want a lot of offers on jobs when I graduate. I plan to go to a four-year college.
