Well I'm 22, female...recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago. My major was in traditional animation, but I'm more of an illustrator and cartoonist than an animator. I love most artistic things other than drawing. I dabble a bit in sewing. Mostly costumes for myself though but I want to branch out into clothes too. Other than that I like singing, dancing, and hang out with my friend of course.
I mostly just rant and ramble about things on my LJ. Usually about things that bother me at the moment. Sometimes I see a comment online that spurs some strong emotion in me, hear disappointing things from others, or see something on TV that gets to me so much that I end up ranting on the subject. Other times I just write about my feelings at the moment just to vent them somewhere. And others still end up being me "thinking out loud". Probably working out the personalities for characters I'm developing. Also I might get personal and talk about my personal beliefs about myself. And sometimes those beliefs might not be typical for most people. Because of my own personal beliefs, I tend to be very open and respectful of all beliefs. To treat others as I wish to be treated. And whether or not you share my own beliefs is of no consequence to me. Just so long as you're respectful that's fine.
I'm a generally shy person but I'm trying to be more talkative and I've started to notice that when I'm more talkative online that it makes it easier for me to be talkative in person. So I'm always up for good discussions. Even on the subject of religion (I'm an agnostic theist myself...). So long as respect is had on both sides, everything is fine.
Being a more cartooning oriented person, I tend to like animated TV shows and movies. I love anime, most Disney movies, and a good deal of the stuff on TV now. I tend to be pretty critical of a lot of things too but I still enjoy some shows that I'm critical of (art school does that to you...).
I don't really have a friends only policy with my blog. If you're interested in what I have to say and what's up there now, I'd image you'd be interested in what I have to say in the future. I don't really talk about anything that I haven't said plenty of times elsewhere or that I think would need to be hidden. Everything's pretty "PG-13" there.
I hope to make some new friends and acquaintances here!
