Age: It changes constantly. Don't we grow a little every day? ;)
Height: I'm not short; I'm FUN-SIZED!

Pet Peeves: Being tapped on the shoulder (idk - I don't get it either), celebrities who think they're awesome but who really aren't, THOMAS EDISON, people who think Thomas Edison was a genius, driving through New Jersey (because everything there is named after Edison), being forced to take classes that are below my performance level, THE TWILIGHT "SAGA," obsessive fans of said "saga," Fifty Shades of Grey, haters of any kind (except if they're Twilight and Fifty Shades haters)
Favorite Music: I like pretty much anything. If I hear a song and I think it sounds good, then I'm a fan. Although I have a bit of a preference for indie music. :)

Favorite Anime: I'm not a huge Anime person, but I'm starting to become a big fan of Miyazaki. So far I've seen Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, and most of Kiki's Delivery Service, all of which I loved. I also love Sergeant Frog. It's so random it's epic.

Wildest Dream(s): to become a children's/YA author and be the next J.K. Rowling, to become a film/TV actor/writer/etc., to record songs professionally, to make a biopic about Nikola Tesla, to meet the Pope, to travel to space, to be a mermaid :D, to find a magical land in a closet, to marry Tom Hiddleston (LOL) - or if not that, to marry a real-life Tintin or Hiccup Haddock or Jack Frost (I have issues, I know. xD)
Personality: People think I'm quiet. Until they get to know me. ;)
Random Fact: Amanda Tapping has a twin brother.
Another Random Fact: I have a strange habit of being able to predict plot elements in TV shows and movies. Usually, I come up with ideas for fanfics that actually end up on whatever show or whatever movie. It's kind of scary, and I'm beginning to think I am a legitimate abnormal.
Yet ANOTHER Random Fact: I have a tendency to become very obsessed with things that I like. Especially Narnia and Nikola Tesla and Loki and Tintin. And things involving random hot guys. Therefore, I will see references to these things at anytime in any place. This results in me becoming easily distracted (although this happens anyway because I have a fondness for shiny objects). :D

“Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming. And don’t be afraid of wearing your heart on your sleeve - in declaring the films that you love, the films that you want to make, the life that you’ve had, and the lives you can help reflect in cinema. For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing.
