My Occupation: Anticipating writer, Japanese language student (well, teaching myself as of right now), hobbyist
Interests: Art and creativity, lots and lots of electronic music, futurism, sci-fi, writing my heart out, skyscrapers, Japan, fractals, space, anime
Signature: Hiragana characters are pretty.
Biography: Hi! I'm Sammi.

I enjoy writing, listening to music, drawing, watching anime, using the computer, studying psychology, playing video games, making fractals, looking at pretty pictures of big cities, learning Japanese in my spare time, and going back and forth between a "normal" and backwards sleeping schedule (I enjoy this -most of the time anyways-).

I love Zelda, electronic music, space, drawing (want to improve), writing, and Japanese things. Also, purple is pretty. I like interesting textures (no, not dry skin!), pretty shapes, nice people, interesting people, my favorite band Ladytron (okay, there are two types of electronica - Ladytron and electronica - they get a category of their own for their awesome music), interesting song atmospheres that I deem as creative: futuristic (Ladytron), enigmatic (Ladytron), abstract (Ladytron). Okay, I went a little overboard about how much I like Ladytron, but they're just really creative. You (generally speaking) probably wouldn't like 'em if you dislike electronica, but for an electronic music buff, they're pretty much really intriguing.

Some electronic bands / artists I like besides Ladytron are Solar Fields, Miss Kittin, Orbital, DJ Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, She, Capsule, and The Crystal Method - among others. Artists from other genres I like include Porcupine Tree, Tool, Nobuo Uemastu, Paramore, Santana, and The Doors. Basically, I like what I like.

I'm big on animals and dislike people who torture them. If anything evil exists, it's animal cruelty. I like dogs and cats equally, Bengal cats especially, huskies and miniature poodles for dogs. I like my dog, because she's cute! She just sits on everyone's lap. I also like other animals - penguins are pretty cool.

I love anime and some of my favorites include Inuyasha, Serial Experiments Lain, .Hack/Sign and other anime. I want to complete Inuyasha, though, as I haven't - it's really long (167 episodes). I'm also watching a relatively short anime called K-On! that is pretty fun and Mushishi (weird, and that's why it's interesting). I still have a lot of anime to watch. I like anime characters' big square eyes, elf ears (a lot of them have elf ears), and cool clothes.

I have Asperger's, am introverted (with extroverted tendencies), and find socializing difficult, but I don't really have a problem being this way. I have improved my social skills a lot over the years, and the amount of social mistakes I make are lesser than before. I believe we are all a little weird. I don't think I would be as creative as I am today if I didn't have the Asperger's, so it's a blessing in a sense.

My motto to people is "Be yourself. Do not let negative people bring you down. Haters have their personal battles in life."

Okay, that's about it.

FuchsiaFestival!'s recent Blog entry. Can I Have Suggestions? ( 16 reads) Tuesday, August 26, 2014 (21:36:00)
 
Suggestions about what I should do in life. For some time, I wanted to be an artist. I am good at it, but I really don't think I have enough talent - I have some.

I'll explain what I wanted from 6th grade and afterwards.

In 6th-7th grade, I wanted to be a singer. That dream died, because I wasn't very good at it, and I was fine with that- no negativity attached.

After that, I wanted to be an artist. I have practiced and improved a bit, but I feel like I have too many restrictions, and the amount of stuff I can draw without it looking stick-figure level (or a little above it) is limited. I don't want to make comparisons here (too many anyways) as jealousy is a bad thing, but most of the highly talented artists I encounter on the web can draw better than me in their first year, completely self-taught, and I have been practicing for over 5 years with some degree of art training.

Maybe I shouldn't be an artist, although it sounds like a fun career, because I feel like I don't have enough raw talent - and art is a really competitive field, so if 95% of the artists have better work than I, that would equal low-income or something like that (I don't know if I worded that right). Anyways, I feel better and more accomplished at writing, especially because I can fluctuate between concrete and abstract styles with ease and am just good at it. Also, in high school, my teacher mentioned that my writing was college level, and that was a few years ago. Writing comes so naturally for me. I am a good artist, but I am not awesome at it.

I love anime, and I am trying to teach myself how to draw it, but I have a problem with poses. Maybe there is a career path related to anime besides drawing it. I just love it so much.

I am also good with computers and I like video games, so people who recommended a career outside of just drawing mentioned that maybe I could do something in video game design. Maybe that doesn't take as much raw talent as drawing highly realistic-looking people, but it takes some level of art talent. I've also been recommended graphic design, similar to video game design itself.

Apparently, I am good at learning about languages and stuff, because I am doing well at the Japanese (that I'm learning to move there someday). If I take graphic design classes and get a job in the United States, it'll probably be for a couple of years until I transfer with a portfolio or something. It could be over 5 years until I move there, depending on how much Japanese I really need to know and how much my graphic design classes take me.

I also feel like I should advocate for Asperger's Syndrome and help people with similar social problems and how to overcome some of them.

Suggestions for what I should do in my life? What would be a career path I would enjoy and excel at?
