Salutations! I‘m Diya. Let’s be friends! We can ride ponies and slide down rainbows and… it’ll be lots of fun.
I think I’m rather witty. I like to brag that I taught myself the ukulele.
Everything's on fire, the war outside our door keeps raging on; hold onto this lullaby even when the music's gone
I'm in the process of learning American Sign Language from my mother's old textbooks, and German from Rosetta Stone (though I'm really not diligent about keeping up with that).
Time stacks up in piles like winter snow, and everything you love and hold so dear- it won't really matter when we disappear
I don’t really write fanfiction anymore, though I’ll try to jump back on that bandwagon sometime or another. I love art. I have a probably unhealthy addiction to Goldfish crackers.
Oh, lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France; lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance; lets get rich and build a house on a mountain, making everybody look like ants from way up there, you and I, you and I
And that’s really all you need to know. However, I'm awful about having long profiles, so...

As a parting note, I really love PM’s. (Personal messages. Not PMS. That would be weird.) Seriously, you have no idea how much they brighten my day. I love to talk to people, probably a little too much, so don’t hesitate if you want to, er, talk! :D
Hasta otro momento,
