I'm a 19 year old honors student at a liberal arts university in Alabama. I'm studying to receive a BFA in Graphic Design and might also add ceramics or drawing as a second concentration. I'm president of our honors organization and anime club. I'm a self proclaimed otaku and cat lover and I spend way too much time drawing fanart, watching anime, reading manga, and making icons. Beyond anime and manga, I love Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, fantasy, and collecting Japanese kimono. I'm a lesbian and my girlfriend and I have been dating for 2 years, with plans to get married once we both finish university. My politics are liberal, but I accept all beliefs and extend equality to all people. If you disagree, do so politely and intelligently. Remember the Golden Rule. Love is love, no matter what form it takes. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
