Hi! Nice to meet you! I am an Irish-Latvian girl living in Florida. I'm nice, but very shy until I get to know you, and even then I'm still kind of shy at times. I hope to be a pastry chef, or have my own daycare or photography business and live in the San Francisco Bay area (or some other city) someday.
Facts about me:
1. I am a lefty, though I sometimes write with my right hand too.
2. I am mostly a vegetarian. I don't eat meat, but I do eat dairy products, and occasionally eggs, shrimp (or other shellfish), or sushi.
3. My favorite colors are green and blue.
4. My birthday is September 16th.
5. I have Social Anxiety Disorder and ADHD, and have symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder and Avoidant Personality Disorder, but neither of those has been officially diagnosed.
6. My favorite kinds of music: Classic rock/Oldies, J-Pop, Pop, 70s, 80s, 90s, Country (particularly Martina McBride, Shania Twain, Brad Paisley, and Lonestar) and some Disco. I hate Rap, Opera, Heavy Metal, and Screamo.
7. I am obsessed with baby names, even the names of celebrity babies and especially Latvian, Japanese, and Russian names. I dislike anything too over the top (Sha-Diamond, Shatoya, Shithead [sha-teed], Female [like tamale, but with an F], etc...) or trendy/tacky (Nevaeh, Addison, -aiden names, names of cars, liquor, or cutesy names you would give to pets). I like something that's still relatively uncommon in the US, but still classy.
8. I collect coffee/tea mugs.
9. I am learning Japanese, Latvian, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Greek, and Hebrew. Not very good at them, but I've only been studying them for a few weeks maybe, with the exception of Japanese (been studying off and on for about 10 years, and I also don't remember things well, so I still suck. lol), so give me a break. XD If you want to help me practice, feel free.
10. I am a forensics/crime solving junkie. I watch and read a lot of crime stuff, and I even look into unsolved cases online and do a little criminal profiling. I hate seeing crimes go unsolved, especially if they involve kids.

I finally got around to taking my college placement test this afternoon. My reading and writing scores were 106 or 108 each (I forget which one) and math was 104, which was very shocking. lol Not sure how scoring works on these things, though I was told I did pretty well despite functioning on only a couple hours of sleep and not enough studying. I am terrible at Math usually. I just guessed on a lot of the questions in that section.
My mom and I met with an Academic Advisor after that to discuss which classes I should take. The waiting was nuts! I was able to get into the testing area very quickly and finished the actual test in a little over 2 1/2 hours. Average is about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. XD Waiting to speak to an Advisor, though, was like a 30-40 minute wait. I wanted to fall asleep and I even started to feel sick because I forgot to eat breakfast. But luckily my mom saved me when she bought me a Sprite and a pack of Cheetos from the vending machines down the hall.
Anyway, when we got into the Advisor’s office and this meeting lasted about 30 minutes to an hour, I originally thought that I’d be doing everything except my Speech class online, but we learned that the math classes I need actually aren’t offered that way unless they’re half-semester courses, so instead I will be taking math at my nearest campus. Then we had to speak to someone in Registration to officially sign up. That took about 10 minutes, which is the same amount of time I had to wait in the Assessment office. We didn’t get out of the school until around 5:00 PM. A lot later than we expected. It was dinner time by the time we left.
I am registered for five classes in the Fall semester: Mathematics II/Elementary Algebra and Survey in Mathematics, plus a Mathematics II/Elementary Algebra lab, Introduction to Composition (English), and Developmental Psychology. I am also planning to earn a CDA (Child Development Associate) credential and a Director’s credential which will allow me to open my own daycare center or preschool and I’ll need to get certified in first aid and CPR before graduation, but I’ll deal with it once I get most of my other courses out of the way, I think. Once my financial aid is awarded, I start on August 24th and will be attending full time.
My Jem and the Holograms fic is coming along nicely. I haven't officially started writing the first chapter, but I have the first scene outlined and it looks pretty damn awesome so far. I'll try to flesh my ideas out and work it when I can. I hope to get at least 3 chapters written before my classes start, because I may not have time to write as often then. If that doesn't happen, oh well. I'm doing my best. I am open to a co-writer helping me out though if you're interested. It's mostly Stormer centric, but the other Misfits and the Holograms play major roles in it too. It may help keep the updates steady. I'd hate to see this fic go dead like some of my projects in the other fandoms I write for.
I'm totally beat, so I'm off to watch more Jem episodes and get my ass to bed. Later!
