It's not my real name, but it IS a nickname that I far prefer, right up there along with Ten. I'm 16, and live in the California Bay Area.
I'm a swimmer; best stroke is freestyle followed closely by backstroke. After that, I prefer butterfly over breaststroke. I'm a tomboy, and it drives loads of my girl friends crazy that I have no sense of fashion or of what looks good on me. Usually I just wear a sweater/hoodie and jeans.
I'm a bit of a nerd, I like the Naruto and Bleach mangas, and I was on fanfiction.net until a little while ago. I also like the Avatar: Last Airbender cartoon. Other hobbies of mine are reading and writing, and I really like debating philosophy. I fence, and kayak. Listen to a lot of music, pretty much any kind.
I made a LJ to make some new friends and help me start writing on a more regular basis, which should hopefully help me improve my skills too. So, y'know, drop by my profile and read a bit more, add me if you think we could be friends. Hopefully we'll have a chat in a bit.
