Note: this site is mostly friends only. If you'd like to view most of the entries, feel free to friend me. I'll most likely friend you back. Also..."clandestine" should be changed to something else now that I am pursuing a future in art.

Quotes: “Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results." --Anon.
"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth." -- Umberto Eco
"Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem." -- W. Somerset Maugham
"A good painter has two chief objects to paint: man and the intention of his soul; the former is easy, the latter hard." --Leonardo da Vinci
"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth. But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange doesn't encompass everything that goes on here, but I still choose to believe in its principle, that all things do come at a price, that there's an ebb and a flow, a cycle, that the pain we went through did have a reward, and that anyone who's determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it's not what they expected. I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise, between my brother and me. A promise that, someday, we'll see each other again." --Alphonse Elric
O t h e r
I'm a pretty cheerful person for the most part. I'm very very rarely in a bad mood around my friends, because they usually make me happy just being with them.
I don't like to argue with people.
I rarely ever watch T.V. and most of the anime I watch is through the Internet via YouTube, Veoh, MegaVideo, and Guba. I watch more anime shows than regular T.V. shows.
I can twirl a pencil three ways: around my thumb, around my index and middle finger, and around all my fingers.
I can count to ten in Chinese, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, and Bahasa. I can also count to ten in sign language (both American and Chinese)
