Hey there! I'm taking a break from the 'Bot for a while. I'll be on occasionally, but if you need anything, drop me a line.
â¤ I am a proud co-owner of the Super Nerds group. Come share in the nerdy fun! â¤
Hi there, I'm Manda. I love foreign language, literature, anything nerdy, and technology. I enjoy illustrating and animation. I'm now at that point in my life where I've no idea what my future holds or what I want to do. :S I would love to be an editor or something of that nature. Who knows?
I have 2 bunbabies that are my world: Rorschach, who I've raised from 3 months old, and his wifey Ramona Flowers. Aside from Craisins and rose petals, their favorite thing in the world is willow branches.
I'm mostly a shy nerd who has a lot of random interests and an adaptable personality. In some ways, I'm a typical girly-girl; in others, I'm not. I spend a lot of time dreaming up new crafty things I want to make or imaginging crazy things I want to capture on paper. I adore cute things, especially cute animals and tiny things with faces that typically don't have faces. I'm passionately addicted to collecting stuffed animals and I really love food. All food. I'm also a huge gamer, though I don't have as much time for it anymore. But, don't be fooled - I also like the darker side of things as well. >:]
I am fond of intelligent discussions and debates, especially about philosophy or theology, and enjoy learning about almost everything. In general, I love having fun and being silly, though I spend most of my time alone, usually reading, listening to music or playing video games. Satire is my favorite genre of literature, but I'm also ridiculously addicted to British humor. I don't think a life without dry wit would be bearable.
â˜† Random: I'm not picky about swaps. I have a twisted/dark sense of humor and am not easily offended. Also, while I am not very religious, religious themes & images are not unwelcome, as long as it is respectful. This goes for all religions.
â˜† Jewelry: Love chunky costume jewelry rings. I have 5 piercings (ears, navel, lip) & a nickel allergy and sensitive skin. Nickel-free & stainless steel earring backings work for me.
â˜† Makeup/Beauty Products: I prefer simple things like lip gloss or lotion.
â˜† Food: No known food allergies. I eat/drink almost everything & am not picky.
I like many different crafts, but I mostly prefer to draw/illustrate and sculpt with polymer clay. I do digital art and photo-manipulation, too. I love making ATCs. Mine are almost always illustrated.
I make charms, pendants, jewelry, and figures with polymer clay (mainly tiny food for my Etsy). I dabble in plushie making and sewing and am trying to learn how to crochet.
I don't do any papercrafting, but I hoard ephemera & scrapbook paper to use for other things.
Oh yeah, and I love to write.
