first post

So, I suppose I should have this sideline blog about me per se. I might use this to write rants in particular, since I have another blog on my life over at LiveJournal, over here. It's Friends-only anyway. Oh, what sort of rants? Not sure yet.

Anyway. Name's Di. Or that's my nickname. I've mentioned my full name in other entries I think, so if you missed it, better luck next time. I'm an 18 year old girl (I'll be ninteen in less than two months now), currently residing in Puerto Rico, for nearly nine years. Before that, I lived in various places in the US for ten years. Both of my parents are Puerto Rican, and I probably have some Italian on my dad's side. But, the latina in me is way stronger [/Star Wars], because when provoked, I do have a hell of a temper. Oh, and I've got an older brother, who's 23.

So, I was born in Colorado, which means someday I can run for US President and rule the world if elected. Then I lived in Panama for a couple of years. Then Kansas. I went to preschool there, and met my first best friend there, Sammy. But he moved (bitch). And then I moved to Conneticut, and spent most of elementary there, in two different Catholic schools. Then we moved here to Puerto Rico, and I spent 5th to 9th at the same public school. Basically, I hated my time there. 'Twas something of my emo stage I guess, but I never cut myself or anything. I was just severely depressed. Plus no friends. Yeah. It sucked.

Then I started high school, and decided to go to a private one. And I chose a kickass place. Best three years I could've hoped for. Not everything was perfect, but I met people that I liked and got into acting and started to write more. I graduated salutatorian. Yeah, I'm smart. I have to be anyway, because schoolwork has never given me motivation whatsoever. So I just basically did the projects that I had to, and aced most tests. I must be bragging. Sorry. But, at various points in life, I have been called a prodigy. I think it must be because of my talents in music, writing, drawing and acting, plus that I can do well in classes that I hate or am not good at. I just lack motivation. So anyway, I finished high school last year and started college at Sagrado, as a Theater major. Yeah, even my parents thought I should've studied something more useful (why else would mom always tell me to tell family that I'm studying Humanities?). Last semester was totally kickass too, I love college life.

But, since I couldn't pay what I had left over, I had to skip this semester, so I've been a deadbeat and a wannabe writer since January. And I'm now a directionless person, since I don't know anymore if I want to go back to college or if I just want to move out and do other things with my life. I know finishing college will improve my chances of jobs tenfold, but I dunno. I'm just not sure if it'll be worth it for me, especially if my parents can't afford it and if I can't pay for it. Well, I still have time to decide. And anyway, I can't move out just yet because I'm broke. So, send money this way. *cough* I kid I kid.

Now, my personality. Well, right off the bat, I have perhaps one of the most twisted personalities you'll ever see. I don't do things the normal way, I don't see things the normal way. I do everything backwards, I've got something of a cruel and sadistic streak, and I can be very thoughtless and aloof and my head's always in the clouds. I'm weird. But there are good things to my personality, I think. Most say I'm really kind and sweet, that I'm creative, and that I'm a lot of fun to be with. And that my sense of humor is kickass. There are other things to be sure, but I kinda don't remember at the moment. I'm a poor judge of the good things in my personality. Well, I wasn't always this twisted and fucked up, but ah well I guess.

Anyway, things I like. Er, anime, manga, video games. That's pretty obvious. But I'm not this whore that says everything is awesome. Especially anime, I'd say a good 80% of current anime sucks. But two of the best are FLCL and Cowboy Bebop. They totally rule. I like more manga though, since it's cheaper. Favorites: Fruits Basket, Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles, Nana, Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, Magic Knight Rayearth, Naruto, One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach, DN Angel. And video games, I've been playing since I was three, there ain't no turning back. I have lots of favorites, but my top ones would be Super Mario Bros. 3, Final Fantasy VI, Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Kingdom Hearts I and II. Oh, and Prince of Persia (the new ones, never played the old ones). I also love music. Indie rock, punk rock, alternative, and rock in general. Hell, here's a list of bands:

Yup. Asides music, I also love books and movies. Favorite book: 1984. Favorite movie: Quite possibly Kill Bill vols. 1 and 2.

Ah, what else about me...well, I've got a skeleton or five hiding in my closet. But I'm doing my best to face up to them, slowly and surely.

Oh yeah, love life. Up till Nowadays...well, I think most of you can guess. I don't feel like giving details. Ah what the hell. Well, if two years ago someone told me that I'd slowly fall for and start dating a certain Robert Fidler (who I call Sam, long story), I would've laughed in their faces. We hated each other, and the probability of us even being friends was slim to none. Er, well, I guess things change. He became one of my best friends, and one thing leads to another I guess. I gotta say, still can't figure out what I did. Whatever. Anyway, that's the gist basically. Happy?

I think that's it, I don't think I missed anything. So that's me in one entry. Now perhaps you may or may not understand stuff in entries. Oh, ice cream.
