Name: (real name if possible) Kristen =]
Nicknames: Oh, many. Kris, digi, otaku, Kristen-sama to name a few.
Gender: Female (big surprise, right?)
Likes: reading, writing, playing online, anatomy lab (seriously, dissection is SO cool), messing around on wikipedia, running, learning, being with friends, music, being with my family, TEA, driving...
Dislikes: Rude people, insensitivity, spinach, fad diets, bad writing, bad grammar, or bad spelling, know it alls, working the night shift, wearing pants with wet hems and bare feet, days that look like they should be hot but are actually windy and miserable...
Hobbies: writing, running, drawing (although I'm crap at it), singing...
Talents: Singing is my biggest talent; I work really hard at it and it's through this hard work I've gotten as good as I am. I'm a fair writer as well.
Strong Points: I'm incredibly loyal - to my friends, my family...the people I trust, I trust implicitly and would go to any lengths for. I believe very firmly in giving my all to others and in the idea of karma, so I'm very generous with my time and my money - it only takes a minute or so to make someone's day better. I'm insatiably curious, and want to know everything out there, so I'm meticulous and thorough, and any project I undertake is done to 110% of my abilities. I work hard to earn everything I have, and don't have any respect for anyone who isn't the same way. I'm a fairly good listener and pretty empathetic - I like hearing people's stories, and I like to make people feel better.
Weak Points: I have trouble with showing my emotions - I don't like admitting to people I have problems and it's kinda difficult for me to say what I'm really thinking or feeling. I'm very proud and (admittedly) a bit vain. I'm hugely competitive - everything to me is a win or lose situation, and I have to win! I also come off as aloof or overly serious a lot of the time, I've been told; at the same time, I've also heard that I'm silly and zany and childish, so there ya go.
Favorite Color: Blue or green. They're both such calm colors, and both can have such vastly different meanings depending on the shade. Also, my eyes are green-blue. =]
Optimistic or Pessimistic: Honestly, I'm fairly optimistic. I believe I control my own fate and as long as I work hard and don't give up or give in, life'll be pretty good!
Hyper or Calm or Normal Energy: Eh, fairly calm. I can be hyper when I'm around friends, but I've calmed down a lot over the years.
Impulsive or Think Things Through: I think things through, definitely. I blame my parents for that one - when I was little, I always had to have a real reason for wanting something other than "because it's cool" so I learned to find a reason for my every action and decision in case somebody tries to call me on it.
Outgoing or Shy: I'm pretty outgoing. I like meeting new people and I like making new friends. =]
Mature or Immature?: Well, a bit of column A, a bit of column B...but mostly, I'm mature. I tend towards rationality and logic, and I am a "voice of reason" a lot of the time. I've also learned within the last couple months that I'm apparently a leader-type. People listen to me!
Leader or Follower?: Ha, I already answered this! People just...kinda listen to what I say. I'm not sure exactly why - I'm not really intimidating or anything. I've been told I'm charismatic. =D
If you had the 3 wishes, what would they be?: Hmmm...first would be for love - yeah, stupid, but I want someone that would be able to get me out of my absolute terror of intimacy! Second, probably for something appropriately Miss America, like world peace or the end of world hunger or something like that. Third... well, I'd say happiness for the ones I love here, but that wouldn't be very nice of me, so I'll say stability. Happiness all the time would suck, after a while - I mean, it's like having cheesecake all the time; it's awesome at first, but after a while it just tastes bad. Besides, without the unhappy parts in life, we'd never really know what those happy parts were like. But stability, stability means that you have something in your life that isn't changing all the time, something you can depend on.
Favorite Character? Why?: Oh, goodness...Mitsukake. He's selfless, modest, funny, friendly, and all-around a pretty awesome guy. I'm also a big fan of Chichiri's - it'd be cool to hear some of the stories he no doubt has collected. Really, it's hard to choose a favorite, though!
Anything else?: Um, I'd really like to know why I am who I am. I think I got sorted in this community a couple years ago and was Yui, so I'm curious as to how much I've changed.
Pictures (optional): Sure, why not?
Obligatory Myspace picture!
I'm not sure what was over to the side, really...
