    I Love to Make Things.

     I love, love, love to make things. I'm not so good at actually drawing or painting, (my best works are doodles) and I'm not a carpenter, or a genius mechanic like my best friend, but I love writing and more specifically, making emotions. That's why I love acting. I swear...

    I love to write stories

    and draw pictures, and I just recently started working with some other people on my own cartoon idea (its just an idea so far, but I'll probably animate and pitch it for my thesis) I am so excited for everything, and I would love to meet other people of the same drive!

    I Suck But I Do It Anyway.

    I am not a very artistic person. I like to doodle and draw when I am in the mood, but I couldn't draw a straight line or a circle if I needed too, so forget anything complex. I tried painting before but they just pissed me off more then anything.  One thing I really enjoyed...

    I am right brain dominant.

    That's great when I'm creating... But the lows are inevitable for personalities like mine. Today I'd like to be alone and hear only silence. Maybe a long warm bubble bath is in order. And sex since I'm not alone.
