I am a 26 year old female, studying Music and Management techniques on the fly and learning how to live life to the fullest while I am at it. I am a writer, artist, musician, and dreamer all wrapped up into one brilliant package.

I love reading, listening to music, watching musicals, writing, drawing, learning, watching stupid, old cartoons, silly animes, and doing whatever I can to better myself and to help others

Favorite Quote-
‘At the age of five years I had the habit of sketching things. At the age of fifty I had produced a large number of pictures, but for all that, none of them had any merit until the age of seventy. At seventy-three finally I learned something about the true nature of things, birds, animals, insects, fish, the grasses and the trees. So at the age of eighty years I will have made some progress, at ninety I will have penetrated the deepest significance of things, at a hundred I will make real wonders and at a hundred and ten, every point, every line, will have a life of its own.’

Well, I am already preparing for NaNo WriMo with one goal and intent- the Final Draft of my first book. 

Lately, I have finally started reading Naruto (trough book 16 now) and I love the artists comments as to how he started writing and what lead him to the point he is at now.  I must say, I feel like I can relate to a lot of what he has gone through, and what he has written thus far (up to book 16) and what I have read, along with other things, is finally solidifying what I want TCoR to be and where I want it to go. 

Slyer gave me the idea to start world building, and so I did and still am.  But the more I worked on it, the more ideas came to life making Rhodinia, well, real.  And what Kishamoto wrote in his manga, I finally know where to start and where to go.  So, yes.  It is time I became an author.

Also, my new job?  I love it.  I am starting phlebotomy on the 21 this month!  Got to admit, for a while, I was terrified, but now I am excited for it.

And in other news, I am happy!  My life is wonderful.  That guy I was seeing, well, we are working on things.  Our relationship is not perfect, but who can claim to have a perfect relationship?  Things are much better between us.  He really had to fight hard to win me back, and for it, I believe he is a better man.  All around him, he is showing a sweeter, gentler, more caring side- to friends, and even people who had wronged him in the past.  We both work together to better each other and build each other up.  There are times where he annoys the crap out of me, but I am certain he feels the same way about me.  None the less, we are starting to make wedding plans (two years out yet), and will be doing premarital counseling as well.  Still haven't come out and officially announced my engagement as of yet, as there are still many dark feelings about our relationship in the past, many of which I stirred up out of anger.  So I am waiting for those rough tides to subside first.

I am back and even better yet, I am in a place much better than I have ever been in my life and joy, love, and even elation fills my every being.  I look forward to waking in the morning and facing the days before me. 

I will say this- I will be a published writer before I marry.  So, expect some final character sketches and snippets here and there as the story knits itself together.  Thank you for all your support, advice, and kindness!
