Hobbies - Karate, drawing, listening to music, writing, graphic arts using Adobe Photoshop

Season - Winter
Book - ...That's hard. ^^; I read manga and novels mainly. Recent manga includes Fushigi Yuugi (which finished, and it's sad), D.N.Angel, Rurouni Kenshin, and Fruits Basket. For novels, I'm trying to get through some Xanth novels.
Movies - Another hard one. Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Peter Pan, Mulan, Howl's Moving Castle, Lord of the Rings, and Interview With the Vampire are a few. ^^;
Song - I'm very eclectic with music, so that's really hard. But lately Nightwish's "Wish You Were Here" and "NOKUTA-N" by Amiboshi in Fushigi Yuugi are my faves. *^_^*
Show - Many, like Fushigi Yuugi, D.N.Angel, 10th Kingdom, Smallville, Danny Phantom, and Charmed.
Music Artist - It varies between Nightwish, Evanscence, Nickelback, Utada Hikaru, Gackt, Hyde, L'arc~en~ciel, and Josh Groban. Right now, though - Josh Groban.
Scent - Freshness of nature
Fruit - Apple
Element - Ice
Likes & Dislikes; etc
Likes - Anime, graphic arts (banners, icons, layouts, mood themes, wallpapers, etc.), karate, drawing, writing, creating characters, studying mythology (Greek, Roman, Chinese, Japanese, etc.), listening to music, watching good movies, hanging out with my friends and family, reading/getting lost in a book, manga, tigers
Dislikes - People who can't grow up/get past high-school drama, people who want me to change who I am for them, stress, getting sick, homework, having to say goodbye
Strong Points - I'm very open-minded, accepting others' views on certain subjects and taking them into account. I'm responsible as a first-degree black belt instructor and the oldest child in my family. I'm creative and apply this to my writing, drawing, and Photoshop outlets. I'm friendly, helpful, and caring of my friends and family.
Weak Points - I can take on too much and then get swamped later on, but I do get everything done. I am very sensitive and take things seriously. I have a very fiery temper that gets the best of me at times. I also fall into depressive states, some so deep that they verge on suicidal thoughts. (Luckily, nothing has come of this.)
Outgoing or Shy - A mix of both, but more shy than outgoing.
Leader or Follower - Depends on what's going on, really.
Hyper, Calm, or Normal Energy - I try to maintain calmness, but I can get very hyper around my friends. And what is normalcy anyways? ^_^
Optimistic or Pessimistic - Optimistic, unless I'm in a depressive state.
Tomboy or Girly-Girl - Tomboy!! XD
Quote, Song Lyric, or Motto you really like. - "I'm me, whether people like it or not. I change for no one - only if someone I deeply care for (family, friend, loved one) makes a great impact on me. Nobody can live in a fake reality, so I forge my own path and let destiny take its course. And I'll keep smiling, even in the darkest of nights."
Anything Else we should know? - When it comes to graphics, I do my best to get them done, but I have a life outside of my laptop. This life interfers sometimes with my graphics work, especially now that I have a full-time job as a secretary at my karate studio. I love working with kids. And I feel the most at peace when I'm doing karate.
Picture Time!! 1-3 pictures please! Or a very detailed description!
