I'm a very, very wacky teenager.
Never used to be like this, though. For those who know me, I'm sorta
outgoing, happy-go-lucky, and ditzy chick who willing to take chances
even when I don't really want to. To those who don't know me: I'm
a shy, quiet, and vertically-challenged (I'm only 5'3" tall,
people) Vietnamese teen who doesn't look like she's eighteen (in Vietnamese
calendar, anyway ^^. Really, I'm seventeen if you go by the normal
calendar)and looks like she's around twelve years old. I absolutely
love to write and draw. They are like my main hobbies and my life
in a sense.
Oh, but that doesn't mean that
I have other hobbies. I love to play basketball, football, volleyball,
and soccer and am pretty good at them if I feel like playing ^_^.
Currently, I'm taking Jeet Kune Do, which is Bruce Lee's martial art
and it's a really, really cool class. It's not a "pretty"
art like Wu Shu (Jet Li's martial art), but it's more of a pratical
class in learning how to defend yourself. You learn how to get out
of situations like if somebody puts you in a headlock, if your assailant's
on top of you, attacking you, etc., etc. I can say a lot more, but
I'd rather just leave it at that because there's a lot of things going
on in that class.
I'm a very, very sensitive person
when it comes to arguements in writing and not mouth. Whoever said
"sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt
me" is wrong. Words in writing do speak a lot more than word
of mouth and can be very hurtful. This doesn't mean that I can't take
constructive criticism (I can, actually), but I can't take criticism
that is so harsh that it makes my good mood go phflunk. People
out there like that are just plain mean =P. Yeah, yeah, being childish
in a way, but that's who I really am.
How did I become such a dedicated
anime otaku? Blame my brother. He first showed me Robotech
at the age of six and I just got hooked.
I've watched a lot of anime during
that ten year period and it has been on and off (Ninja Turtles, man!)
until I encountered Sailor Moon in oh....sixth or seventh grade? Everytime
a series ends, I look for new ones to watch.
At first, I though dubs were
okay. But then, after getting the internet, I searched the web and
read the REAL episodes for Sailor Moon and I got p**sed. Since then,
I've been against dubs. Not only do most of the English dubs SUCK,
but they cut out so much from the original Japanese that sometimes
it doesn't make sense. Take Card Captor Sakura, for example. It used
to be on FOX, I think, and what my friend had told me, they switched
the episodes around like episode 8 being episode 3 on TV, etc., etc.
My favorite anime so far is Rurouni
Kenshin. The comic book is better than the anime, actually, but they
are both pretty good. Sometimes, though, the drawing in the anime
is varied from really really good (i.e. Saitoh vs. Kenshin fight)
to really really horrible (i.e. the episode AFTER Kenshin left). But
that's my opinion.
Well, that's about it! I think
I kind of rambled enough for the day.
