I'm Amelia, 17, from Sydney, Australia. I'm hypo, a chatterer, hates getting up early and can also be a very annoying person. According to Brandon, I am also very sarcastic and mischievous. I'm kind of a nerd in real life as I study for all my exams, try and get 90+ in everything and have a secret desire to top modern history two years in a row. Yep. nerd XD. Outside of school I play on Neo, play on Photoshop, watch anime on my beloved Mac, procrastinate on my Mac, organise my hard drive and eat everything I see.
On my iPod: Jetpack Joyride (level 418 and counting!), Angry Birds Seasons (♥ mighty dragon), Tiny Tower (finished it yay), my mind challenging puzzle games yesssss (Cut the Rope, Trainyard etc), Zombie Life (I want to go to a new cityyyyy), putting my 1000+ songs on shuffle because I was bored
Music: according to my ipod my 5 most played songs are Paradise - Coldplay, Mirotic - TVXQ, Donten - DOES, Toi Michi No Saki de - Ai Takekawa, Someone like You - Adele. I also love anime, movie and game soundtracks, JPop and KPop and Eurovision.
In general: obsessing over good looking anime characters, watching and obsessing over animes, waiting for Pokemon Black and White 2 to come out already, spoiling my rabbit as she pees on me, feeding my rabbit, taking photos of my rabbit, obsessing over my rabbit, reading books and making myself more and more short sighted, watching TV and wanting more Bones, Castle, Merlin, Revenge
Q: What are the origins of your unique username?
Flotsams - I like Flotsams, zey are ze awezomest okaaaaay?
Freako - It alliterates with Flotsam, and I'm kind of freaky. I thought freako sounded better than freak so I added the o.
8254 - I played a lot of Freecell when I was younger. Game #8254 I could always win so I remembered the number so my Freecell stats looked really impressive.
The underscores because I thought it looked better.
~ Brandon (dragonraiderxx) : Ahhh, such an adorable piece of pie (watches Brandon light up like Mr. Coconut) jk. We have been neomailing each other non-stop, practically daily since December lol.

~ The awesome people in INFINITE ∞ : It's been a while since I was in an active guild environment, and from the moment I joined (hearty thanks to Stefan) it's been awesome.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION WHEN I HAVE TIME YES I NEED TO ADD MORE PPLS.
I spend most of my time on Neopets either messing around with coding, talking with people, lurking the AC, Kadding, playing games and trying to get trying to get more trophies, trying to get richer, restocking at the AAA because I'm too lazy to restock elsewhere, attempting to auction snipe and fail, attempting to get game avatars and failing, collecting avatars, spending my NPs on my Flotsam Gallery and avatars (i.e. wheel of extortion), procrastinating from real life, wasting NPs, attempting to figure out what to spend my NC on. Yeah that sums it all up.
The first time I found Neopets was in 2005, after eating a Happy Meal at Maccas (sad I know, but I still have the Purple Wocky and Green Flotsam toy). I made an account after the Wocky I named Peppie, 2bPeppie, my first pet an Acara with the same name (odd I know, I was 10 okay?). I made another account called kacheekmanaic (the spelling is right, I couldn't spell at 10 ok?) because my brother was obsessed with Kacheeks and created a pet called 2bKacheek for him. It was here I created my first Flotsam flotsam_friend_4250. I wanted to call her Whaley but the name was taken and I must've clicked on some silly preset name *facepalm*. She was originally green and based on my Green Flotsam toy (named Whaley). However, she caught Neomonia, I was poor, freaked, and forgot about Neopets for a while.
I rediscovered Neopets in 2007 because one of my friends had a Neopets account. I couldn't get into my original account so I used kacheekmanaic (and healed my poor Flotsam). However, by the time it was 2008 I had turned 13 and kacheekmanaic… happened to be under my brother's birthday, who was most definitely not 13. I wanted to edit my userlookup and my shop, and I wanted to chat to people. However, I refused to make a new account without having my Flotsam on it, and I feared she would be sniped in the Pound if I pound transferred (in hindsight I doubt anyone would want her because she's not well named, but my internet was really slow then lol). I didn't know about transfers lol….once I did, I created my dream account flotsam_freako_8254 (it's eight two five four not eighty two fifty four or any other combination although eight two fifty four is pretty 1337 sounding).
I basically spent the next 3 years playing games, talking to real life friends and chatting to people in the Neopian Gold guild but otherwise….staying away from the mass that was the Neoboards. First time I ever chatted on the Boards was on the Habitarium boards lol, and later the Altador Cup boards in 2011. Ironically, it was Neopets: Treasure Keepers that lead to my full-time lurking/posting on the AC. Through the game I found a former schoolmate who played Neo, Vanessa and I jumped into the AC… where I still lurk occasionally (I had already started collecting avvies by then, I had around 230. I bought a FQD and Chokato and resold it…just for the avatar. Didn't know you could get LENT it).
I have been frozen once, I went to log onto Neo on my birthday and found it was iced wahhhhh. Not nice. Long story short: got my account back in a week, and have been an absolute paranoid since. So the fact my brother plays Neo too makes me really twitchy LOL (especially since all his accounts got permad recently). Annnnnnd I'll leave it there. I can't believe you read all that.

Coding for this pet page came from the awesome tutorial at Zeawn's Petpage. Other than that, background image by me and Infinite images from the guild. Font I used for the navigation is Violation, the font for the headers is Gabriola if you want to know.
Wheel of Extortion - Pain Log
I thought I might as well see how much of my limited NP this wheel will cost:
Didn't keep track at the beginning but from what I remember: Nothing x 2, 25k, 50k, Stamp (sold 30k), +5 Intelligence, 100 001NP
These ones I recorded:
1. 100 001NP
3. SLM #3 (sold 18k)
4. SLM #3 (sold 18.5k) (again give me a nerk =_=)
5. Nothing (!!!!!SHIFT1!!!!1!!!111)
6. SLM #5 (worth 60k)
7. 100 001 NP
8. Nothing (go take money from people who can afford it XD)
Estimated loss: 973.5k. So not sure about exact spins but took me at least 16 spins
Not really a portfolio, but just some stuff I designed for INFINITE and my uh…..drawings. Yes, that weird blob is a drawing. I hand draw, import into Photoshop, outline and colour. I also made a few personal fonts you can see here. Drag and drop to see full size:
