Meet my Portfolio
Welcome, coco_bella, to my portfolio! This portfolio is my personal corner in Neopia where I keep my goals, accomplishments and random things that I hold dear to me. As you stalk through these pages, you will be able to learn all about who I am, as well as see other information that relates to my goals, guild, pets and hobbies that I have on here. My portfolio is not only a great way for my fellow guild members (and other neopians) to get to know me; it is also my own personal tool for achieving my biggest dreams. Welcome, again, and I hope you enjoy my corner! |

Interviews with Anna
- Favorite baking ingredient?
My favorite (traditional) baking ingredient is brown sugar. I just love how a little bit can completely change the flavor of a dish. But my favorite ingredient to use when baking is lemon juice!
- Favorite 90s song?
Oh goodness. Uhmmm... This is rather difficult. I would have to go with Christina Aguilera's song "Reflections". Everything else is (surprisingly) in the early 2000's. I feel so old now!
- Favorite nail polish color?
I love really soft, neutral colors. My favorite and ultimate go-to nail color will have to be OPI's "Under my Trench Coat". It's a really beautiful greyish brown that I wear year-round.
- Favorite childhood cartoon?
Other than Spongebob (which I still love!), my favorite childhood cartoon would probably be either According to Ginger or The Wild Thornberrys. I also really love Catdog and Doug (before Disney took over it).
- Why don't you like summer?
I don't like summer mostly because I really love autumn. Everything that I love about autumn (the beautiful weather, leaves changing, oversized sweaters, hot cocoa, everything!), is missing from summer. While other seasons may have their redeemable qualities, summer has none. Instead, it's just very, very hot. And boring. And all I want is for it to end.
- What's your most prized possession?
My engagement/ wedding ring. Not only is it so beautiful, but it puts a smile on my face every time I see it and think about how lucky I am to be with the man of my dreams.
- Favorite Disney princess and why?
Belle. Because she's a brunette and beautiful. But more importantly, she loves books, she doesn't get caught up in the silly things in life, but most importantly- she has such a kind heart that she could love a beast like Beast. I love that about her.
If you were a baked potato, what kind of toppings would you have?
Hmmm... Probably butter and cheese. Because I'm sweet, I can melt your heart, and I like to be a tad cheesy. Lame answer... I know!
I love to be active on Neopets and I like to consider myself a fairly well-rounded Neopian. While there are many different activities on Neo that I enjoy, I particularly love working on avatars and playing my flash games. I also really enjoy running my habitarium, customizing my pets, working towards trophies, kadding, and chatting it up with my lovely guildies. I love writing for the Neopian Times, and I cannot wait to get my coveted Neopian Times Star avatar. And, while I don't have much experience in these areas, I also hope to work further on pet development, drawing art for my pets, and creating graphics.
goals for march
March will be my first month back from a personal hiatus, so my main goal is mostly just to get back "in the swing of things". It's hard to find a good starting point when you have mostly harder goals left, so it'll be a challenge in itself just starting out. My main plan is to mostly work on my favorite hobbies (RS'ing and NQ), and then dabble a little in both working towards my "easier" game avatars and practicing for April's Reset Day.
One of my favorite hobbies is restocking. However, I'm afraid I'm a little bit rusty since it has ben awhile. Because of this, I want to just slowly easy myself into RS'ing again and not set goals too high that it becomes intimidating.
- Restock 10 UB's
- Practice RS'ing in new shop
- Restock 1 UB Petpet
- RS items for gallery
gaming + avatars
Most of my avatars are game-related now, so my focus will be on games from now on- rather than avatars.
- Set up new Game Center
- Reach 5 new high scores
- Play Faerie Bubbles 15+ times/ week (0/30)
- Play Goparokko 15+ times/ week (0/30)
Another favorite pasttime on neo is NeoQuesting. I only have the gold NeoQuest I trophy remaining, so my focus in terms of NQ will be NQI on Insane. While I do enjoy it, I want to take my time for this final round, so my goals will be rather underwhelming comparative to the past.

current level: 6 / 10
Now that Adreinna is in the Ninja Academy, I am continuing to focus on her HSD, rather than level. While my monthly goal is rather ambitious, I'm hoping that it will become achievable if I constantly train and enlist the help of Faerie Quest (Cookies).
