About Me

I apologize to any partners that have not received a swap that was due 4/21 or alter. I've had some very unexpected circumstances come up in my life that have prevented me from getting out my swaps, but I fully intend on getting them out to you as soon as I possibly can. Thank you everyone for understanding!

I'm Ami. I'm a junior in college at St. Ed's in Austin, TX. I study graphic design and I love to be creative and messy. I work for a local web design company and play lots of video games and I'm also dating a gamer, so games are a big part of my life. I love going to concerts, seeing movies, and just hanging out with friends.

I'm not a religious person but different world religions fascinate me. I'm a big "seeker of truth" in history and religion, and love finding out little known facts about either.

Little Known Facts about ME?

  • I drink soy milk because I like the way it tastes better than regular milk.

  • I finally bought my own espresso machine because it was less expensive than the $100+ dollars I was spending on Starbucks each month.

  • I played the flute in high school just because I wanted to be like "Alan" from the show Sailor Moon.

  • I don't wear color. Never. It's not that I don't like color, it's just that I'm attracted to the black/white/gray stuff more.

  • My adorable Welsh Corgi is named "Jae." This is short for "Judd Nelson" because my roommate and I felt guilty for getting a puppy with out our third roommate's permission. So we let him name the dog. Boys. sigh

  • I add Cayenne pepper to my Mocha's because spicy chocolate is like heaven in my mouth.

I'm a big fan of mixed media, altered art and collaging.

I also love do it yourself clothing and accessories, but I'm not the best at making them myself. Doesn't stop me from trying though. :)

Likes: Silver/black, Gothic or Lolita, Vampires or vampire inspired items, vintage looking items (but not GOLD please), red gems, purple.

Dislikes: Gold anything (I can never match it with my clothes unless it's steampunk, I will FIND a way to make steampunk stuff work), really minimal/tiny stuff, pearls, super colorful stuff.


Comment: will change if i receive
Comment: I did at least receive communication that this swap was going to be late, then another message saying it will be late further. Then finally a message saying that she will not be able to send at all. Guess I should be glad to be told I would be officially flaked on for this swap.

Comment: After a lot of thought and consideration, I'm going to give you a three. First, because you didn't make it, you gave me what your partner gave to you. Second, because it came to me late. Third, because most of the stuff on the bracelet, I don't really understand how you would think I like? Anyways, I just wish it would have came from you. Thank you though. :) ^v^
