XD! Random intro for ya there!
Anyways, I truly apologize for not posting lately! I've had a lot of homework and tests to study for, so that's been taking up a lot of my nights! D:
But I'm here now, and today, I'm going to be doing a tag that Gracie tagged me in- the "15 Random Stuff About Me" tag! So... here's 15 things about me that you guys may not know yet (or maybe you do, XD)!
1. I love the night.
It's just so quiet and pretty! 😅 If it wasn't for all the bugs outside, I would definitely spend a lot more time out in the night- especially now, in the fall, when the nights are cooler!
Thanks a lot bugs. 😒 XD!
2. My mind is filled with animation ideas.
If I find a good song, I always come up with an animation inside my head for it. I can tell it's a REALLY good song if I think of an idea almost immediately, although I expand on it the more I hear the song! That's one of the reasons Owl City is so amazing- the imagery really helps me put together little shows in my head!
I want to learn how to animate soon- I have so many ideas! XD!
3. I hate it if my friends argue.
Sounds pretty normal, but honestly, even if it's just a disagreement, I tend to worry. I try to be the peacekeeper between people, so that there aren't any people hurt, physically OR emotionally. I don't want my groups of friends to split up, so I guess that's my biggest fear with that.
This is only if it's a legitimate argument, though- if it's a just subtle, joking thing, I don't mind at all, as long as it doesn't get out of hand!
4. I feel like I have a special connection to water.
If I could choose an element to have the powers of, I would definitely choose water. I don't know why, but I just feel like water is really powerful to me- it can be powerful, gentle, swift, slow... just about anything! I like to imagine it swirling around things gracefully, and I also come up with a lot of names for characters that have to do with water- for example, Rain, Ripple, Splash, and Wavesong. The sound of water, whether it's a stream, a fountain, or rain, has always been relaxing to me as well. :)
5. I'm trying to teach myself how to play some things on piano... on ROBLOX.
Okay, let me explain! I'm already learning guitar, but I love piano as well (plus, a lot of Owl City/Sky Sailing songs can be played on piano, hehe)! But my family won't pay for piano lessons while I'm doing guitar, and I don't have enough time for that anyway.
So instead, I found a game on ROBLOX with a little piano, and you use the keyboard to play the notes! It sounds like an amateur piano, and it probably is, to be honest, but I've actually figured out a few of the melodies to some Blixemi (a YouTuber who makes original warrior cats-related songs) songs! I'm hoping to learn more when I've got the time! :D
6. I seem to be growing away from having birthday parties IRL.
On Animal Jam, I really look forward to hosting a party and seeing you guys there! But this year, I didn't even have a party IRL- partly because we were going to be planning it so late, and partly because... well, I didn't feel like I NEEDED to have one. Normally I can't wait to host a birthday party, but I guess I'm growing away from it or something.
It could also be because I'm afraid of how my different groups of friends will react to each other, and how they'll react in front of my parents. Most of them seem to know and like each other already, but I just worry about things going wrong (have you noticed how much I worry? It's a problem, XD).
7. I REALLY want to be homeschooled.
If it wasn't for my few friends I have at school (although, to be honest, they could survive without me), and the fact that my parents really don't know how to teach all the subjects we're learning about it public school, I'd switch to homeschooling in a heartbeat. However, I'd also miss doing choir- even if there are people I don't particularly like in my choir class, I still think my choir classes are/were the closest you can get to a family at our public school!
Honestly, though, homeschooling sounds so nice- you work at your own pace, you don't necessarily have to learn things you'll never EVER use, you can sleep in, and there are a lot less tests and homework assignments! Sounds like my cup of tea, hehe!
8. I can't stand it if I get a grade lower than a 90 on a report card.
Yeah... so, if you didn't already know about this, grades are EVERYTHING to me. I don't know why I care so much about them- one B won't keep me from getting a good job or anything- but I just do. Maybe I want the people who see my report cards to be really impressed so I get a special honor- I really have no idea why I can't let grades be grades.
I kid you not, even 89s are unacceptable in my odd mind. I got an 89 on a CA test we took in math a few days ago, and even though I actually didn't do bad at all (I missed two questions out of 18, and one was a stupid mistake), I'm still hoping that grade can be raised by one point, or not put on my report card at all.
Sounds really weird, but that's my brain for you (once again, I worry A LOT).
9. If someone asks me to choose a number off the top of my head, I almost always say 87.
I don't know why, but my mind immediately goes to that number. It's not special to me in any way- it's not even one of my favorites (that's 8 and 95, hehe), but I think of it anyway.
10. Coyotes are now one of my favorite animals on AJ.
They're just so CUTE, and I love their animations, especially the running and dancing ones! I think they're in my top 3 favorite AJ animals, along with deer and tigers!
11. I love almost anything that involves bread.
I'm telling you, bread is my life! Breadsticks, garlic bread, toast, bread rolls- they're all so delicious to me! :D
12. I live to make people happy.
Ever wonder why I choose to make so many random drawings for you guys? If I'm bored, I tend to constantly think, "Hey, why not make a drawing for one of my friends?" Not just because I want to draw, but because I just feel like making someone happy. I hate it when my friends are sad- I'll do almost anything to cheer them up- and I love making someone's day by giving them something of mine! :D
13. I'm obsessed with making Pixlr graphics.
Ever since Lost showed me how to make them (thanks again Lost!), I've been constantly taking picture of pets on Chicken Smoothie, or things on AJ, with solid backgrounds and making them into Pixlr graphics.
What will I use all these graphics for? I honestly have no idea- but I'll think of something one of these days! XD!
14. My old main look used to look like this.
The only different thing is that I had a Rare Glove that was yellow-ish, not pink. But other than that, this recent picture is spot-on. I don't know how on earth I thought of this- it doesn't go together AT ALL! Man, I sure am glad that look evolved into my wizard wolf! :D
15. I imagine my life as a story.
Now, this is something I didn't ever really expect to tell anyone, but it seemed like something interesting to put in the tag.
Anyways, yeah, I tend to narrate things inside my head if I've got nothing better to think about. I basically put my life in book form. I don't know why, and it's actually really, really weird, but I dunno- maybe it's from all the books I've read, XD!
And there you have it! 15 random little facts about me! :D
I hope you all enjoyed this post- and don't worry, there will be a new post up in a couple of days (What's it about? I'll give you a hint- it's a story!) for you guys to read! Until then, remember to PARTY HARD, BE KIND, and JAM ON, guys! :D
