About me : Most likely, if you don't like it, I do; if you do, I don't. This is a very generic but 80% effective way to discern things that I approve/disprove of.
I am very much a loner and don't have any friends except family and my boyfriend. I prefer being left alone. I'm also obsessive-compulsive, and it gets in the way of understanding/relating to people.
I am a bird otaku/geek, specifically in the parrot area. Ask me anything about parrots, especially the big ones. I also love cows/cattle, camels, ducks, whales, fish, and snakes. In general, I just really love animals, except for fluffy/"cute" ones. I especially despise cats.
I am the oldest of 12 children; my family is the most important thing to me.
People think I'm a pessimist; I'm a realist.
I have what I like to call a "piss-off" attitude. It's very difficult to put me down because as soon as life bucks, I mentally tell it and all associated to "piss off". It's got me through diseases, suicides, prejudice, and even the everyday bumps in life. No fail. But it makes me attract people who need a lot of help and are in strong need of advice. Mine is a life long vocation of service.
I'm very logical and rational; I often see things practically, and in black and white. I love schedules and lists; I would rather read 1,000 lists than a novel (and have done so!). I think in numbers and quantities. I don't like emotions, and I base most of my decisions and beliefs on reasoning and facts; some things just can't be reasoned through, however, and I allow some gray area. I am also very ascetic, and shy away from material goods. I buy nothing, save and give everything. I take full responsibility of my emotions, thoughts, actions, and decisions. If everyone did that and was better aware of how their actions affected the world around them, I believe the world would be a better place.
I'm a country girl through and through. I plan on living on my own farm someday. I'm not a redneck though; there's a difference!
I sometimes draw art pertaining to my stories. Please check me out at 008kenichijouji.deviantart.com!
