Currently, I am a junior in college, majoring in English (Writing Concentration) with a minor in Film Studies. When I'm not on campus, I have a tendency to stay at home most of the time. I'm not a big social butterfly. Therefore I spend a lot of time on the internet. However, my other hobbies include playing videogames (mostly Nintendo), writing poetry or essays or stories, and reading. I also adore animals and have quite a few at home. When I move out I'm hoping to own a Pomeranian eventually.
My true hobby here has always been galleries. In December of 2012, an ultimate dream of mine came true when I won the Gallery Spotlight with my now-defunct "Steam Dream Cafe". After, I sold my gallery to start saving for my ultimate dream: purchasing a Marafin. Ever since its release, I have wanted to own one. I'm pretty sure I'll be saving for the next 10+ years. I'm not kidding, that critter is EXPENSIVE. I have not forgotten galleries, and I hope to have another in the future after I have achieved my Marafin.
My other love on this site is customization. I was more than a little wary at first and didn't start purchasing NC for a long while. To be completely honest, I was furious at the conversion of so many beautiful pets (although I was extremely relieved that Taryanne was left alone). However, by the generosity of a handful of amazing friends, plus some kindhearted strangers, I was introduced to the world of customization. Ever since then I've been shamefully addicted to dressing my pets up.
I dabble in other "neo-hobbies", collecting the occasional trophy at random, hunting down the rather large handful of avatars I still need, and the like. I play Key Quest primarily for income, along with a few other things.
Most of all though, I enjoy talking to my friends the most, and chatting on the boards (mostly Charter) to make new friends. I've met some truly wonderful people here, and I'd like to just take a second to acknowledge them. Thank you to: Mellie, Cy, Brooke, Anna, Anastasia, Sarita, Mala, Dortho, Fleur, Lyda and everyone else who has made Neopets all the more fun.

This is without a doubt, the dumbest project I have ever set my eyes upon.
It seems I've acquired a reputation as "The Marafin Girl" because I have been going crazy trying to save enough NPs to purchase the petpet. I'm still outrageously far away from my goal, and I fear if I ever get enough the price will have risen again. But, it is my ultimate dream and I cannot give up on it. Unfortunately.
