What are your hobbies and interests outside of Harry Potter? I love drawing, photography, reading, writing short stories, and web design. I also watch a bunch of anime and Disney movies. A lot of my drawings are in kind of a "Disney style", so I like re-watching the movies for inspiration. I play hockey and tennis, and I get to start horseback riding again this summer! I spend a lot of time reading German books and listening to German CD's so that I can try to perfect my German by next summer when I'll be over in Germany. I'm addicted to video games, especially Animal Crossing DS and Pokemon (yes, I still play Pokemon...shh, don't tell. XD). I also love hanging out with my boyfriend- he's leaving for Iraq in three months, so we've been spending a lot more time together lately.
What is your favorite book( s ) outside of Harry Potter? I hold many different books near and dear to my heart. Right now I'm reading Brave New World for school; I think I'm the only person in my class that actually enjoys it. I like historical fiction, especially about the Tudor dynasty. I love fantasy novels as well- Terry Prachett, Patricia C. Wrede, and Philip Pullman are my favorites authors there (naming individual books would take way too long!). My favorite poet is e.e. cummings- I just bought another huge book of his poems on Amazon, yippee. Dean Koontz is a guilty pleasure of mine; By The Light of the Moon was my favorite of his. My penpal just sent me The Sight by David Clement-Davies- I'm enjoying that too, even though I'm not completely finished with it yet. ^^; I could go on and on here, but I'll finish with Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.
What is your favorite quote? I actually have a whole notebook full of quotes. Some of my favorites are "Live as if you are going to die tomorrow, learn as if you are going to live forever." by Mahatma Gandhi, "How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world." by William Shakespeare, and "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it." by Mark Twain.
What do you most look forward to doing in this community? Talking to my housemates and making new friends! I'm also looking forward to making shiny signature tags. :P I've never been part of a sorting community before, so this is all new to me.
What is the most important thing we should know about you? If I enter a contest or something with a deadline, you should repeatedly poke me so that I don't forget! I have such a bad memory. Meh. Or I could just stick gigantic Post-It notes all over my laptop. Whatever works.
Is there anything else you'd like to share? As I'm writing this, I'm eating a lemon popsicle. It's scrumptious. XD
If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask away. :)
