11 Random Things about me
1: I've always been a bit of a Tomboy(I've become more increasingly so as I've gotten older). I never liked jewelry or make up and I liked both Princesses and Dinosaurs. I also have been very interested in space, the solar system, and other galaxies ever since I was five years old. I also never liked romance stories and would hide my eyes when people kissed on screen(I still do this-haha, though I do get crushes now that I'm older). I also am very interested in weapons such as lightsabers, swords, bow and arrows, and martial arts.So yeah, you could definitely say I'm a tomboy.
2: I did dance for seven years. I started when I was four and stopped when I was ten. I did ballet the entire time, tap for five years, and jazz for one year. I enjoyed it very much and I'm glad that I did it since I got me to love being on stage(I remember my first time on stage way back when I was five. I kept thinking about how cool it was).
3: Before I continue I'd like to say STAR WARS RULES!!! IT'S AWESOME!!!.
I'm one of those Star Wars fans/geeks/fangirls who considers the EU more canon then The Clone Wars. The reason behind that is because I started getting into the EU right after watching the films back when I was nine years old(the first book I 'read' was "Yoda: Dark Rendezvous"; my Dad read it to my sister and I and we loved it). So you could say that, beside it being the thing I saw first, I also have a child-like fondness for the EU that I have for the movies.
4: I have OCD. I found out back when I was about 10 that I had it. If you don't know what OCD is, it stands for "Obsession Compulsive Disorder" and what it pretty much is that your brain gets stuck on a subject(most of the time it's something you don't want to think about or something that makes you angry/upset). I don't have it too bad and I've definitely improved a lot on it.
5: I was born Emergency C-Section. This happened because I had meconium in my lungs and my umbilical cord was tied in three knots. I ended up being transported my helicopter(I was only a few hours old) to a larger hospital where I stayed hooked up to a monitor. Poor baby me :( But I did get to fly in a helicopter which not many can say, so yay! :D
6: I'm going to Celebration VI this year! I don't which days but I'm going to be going for two of them. I'll be dressing up in my Jedi cloak and tunic(with everything that goes with it). I am REALLY looking forward to this even since I'm going to get to be around a bunch of Star Wars fans and I'll even get to meet a few actors.
7: I'm not much of a romantic(I've never read a romance novel..well, except for Twilight but I didn't like that book at all and I'm sure if it counts as one).
But I really liked the pairings of Obi-Wan/Siri, Qui-Gon/Tahl, Anakin Solo/Tahiri Veila, Darra/Ferus, Jaina/Zekk, and Tenel Ka/Jacen. I'm definetely a huge Siri-Wan fan and it's the only romance surrounding Obi-Wan that I believe is canon.
8: I'm a Liberal Democrat and a Christian(I'm a Lutheran; the E.L.C.A branch. I also have some Universalist leanings). I have a strong hold my beliefs and know what I think and believe. I have respect for people who believe and think differently then I do and understand that others have differentiating opinions(whether it be political, religious, or even Star Wars canon) and I try to get along with people of all religious or political backgrounds as long as they respect my opinions on things as well.
9: My favorite types of fiction are Science Fiction and Fantasy. I love watching films and t.v shows and reading books in these genres. I love all stories about adventures in space and in other lands where good and evil must battle it out. I also write in these two genres(though I plan on doing others as well). I've written five books in a science fiction series so far and I really like how it is. I also really want to be in films in these two genres. I'm an actor, writer, filmmaker, singer, taekwondo trainee, piano and clarinet player, and a Jedi :)
10: I started Taekwondo last month and I hope to test soon for my yellow stripe. I really enjoy it and I've learned quite a lot. Besides martial arts, two other physically active activities I've done are soccer, softball, and basketball. I loved both soccer and basketball but I didn't enjoy softball all that much(I did it for two years). The main reason I didn't like softball all that much was because I was always stuck in the outfield where nothing happened.
11: I'm a total Star Wars fangirl/geek/fan/nerd person! I love the films, the books, the t.v shows(both of them), the games, and the comics(which I have yet to read but which look really epic). I've loved it since I was nine and saw "A New Hope" for the first time. The Jedi have always fascinated me and I've always thought it would be cool to be one. Other stories I really, really love are- Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, and any other really well written work. :)
11 Random Questions(asked by Savanna)
1: What do you think of homeschoolers? Well, I AM a homeschooler so I think they are awesome! I've been homeschooled my entire life and I'm very glad that I have been since I've been able to be who I wanted to be and I don't succumb to peer pressure.
2: What was your favorite TV show as a child?
I was always more of a movie kind of girl when I was small but I always loved watching shows on PBS Kids. I also enjoyed watching The Amazing Race and Little House on the Prairie.
3: What is your main passion in life? Well, I have more than one. Here they are: Acting, writing, filmmaking, and Star Wars. I want to be an actor, writer, and filmmaker when I grow up and Star Wars is such a big part of who I am that I had to add it. :)
4: If you had to choose one song to represent your life what would it be?
Faith of the Heart by Russell Watson. It's a very uplifting song about overcoming things in your life and that is what I've done in the past and what I know I'll have to do in the future. Here is the song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpQNQLV3SN4
