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. Stupid censorship...

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.
