Name/Nicknames: Heron | Winter
Birthdate: July 31
Height: Almost 5'0"
Likes/hobbies/talents: I'm something of a jack-of-all-trades in art type things, although I'm best with electric guitar and making weird surreal drawings. And I'm not bad at sewing either. I'm probably on computer way too much. I like rain and snow and cool sunny days and thunderstorms. I'm almost always listening to music. I really love sweets and flavored coffees. I love plants. Yes, even the poisonous ones.
Dislikes: When people are prejudiced or insulting or rude or cruel. Not getting enough sleep. Deadlines. Ultimatums. Shouting, arguments, having people behind me, being touched without warning, jokes at someone's expense. Gossip. Immaturity. Gross things.
Strong Points: I'm rather introverted - I don't mind being alone for extended periods of time. I dislike lying. If I promise I'll do something, it will get done. I'll defend people even if it takes all of what courage I have. I'm completely confident once I know I understand/am capable of something. I'll never betray a friend, so loyalty.
Weak Points: I'm rather introverted - I need more time alone than anyone else I know. I'm a little bit shy. It's difficult for me to express myself in a way that's easily understood; I'll often use metaphors that make no sense to anyone but myself, and then I'll have to explain them. I'm usually not too motivated towards anything, until something new appears and I'm really excited or even obsessed with it for a while. I tend to procrastinate; I have no sense of time; my memory is pretty bad. Conversations are difficult for me. I'm never quite sure what I think of myself; I tend to underestimate my capabilities and get all kinds of nervous because of this. Believing I'm good at anything until I'm told so about 100 times by 15 different people.
Fears: The only things I'm truly afraid of come down to powerlessness and being in pain.
Two favorite animals: I like birds and giraffes and comb jellies and praying mantises and that's way more than two. I couldn't pick, sorry.
Your favorite book or movie, and why: The Secret of Roan Inish. It's just... beautiful, and there's more than a bit of mystery even at the end. And it has selkie legends. ♥
A favorite quote or song lyric: I don't really have any favorite quotes, and I like too many songs to just pick one.
What you want to do for a living: I have no damn clue. Something I don't hate that lets me make money. I might major in history/minor in music, but I'm not sure yet.
You find the journal of one of your friends that was left at your house. What do you do?: I return it to them. Without reading it. I mean, what kind of a friend would I be if I read their journal?
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?: I guess I'd like to turn invisible. Because then I'd be... invisible. Yeah.
Love is...: ...too intangible and abstract to be truly shared or fully reciprocated.
Revenge is...: ...an attempt to right wrongs and restore inner peace, which will never fully satisfy either and will likely perpetuate antagonism.
Anything else?: It's actually been years since I've read Animorphs. >> I really want to reread it, so I'm hoping the public library near my house has the series.
Pictures and/or Describe Yourself: Apparently I look adorable or something; no one ever thinks I'm older than 16. I'm pretty short. I change my hair around a lot, but right now it's its natural dark brown
