Author has written 6 stories for Warriors, Lion King, Troy, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
Hiya, friends! I'm Spiritblaze (or Spirit, whichever you prefer). In case you're wondering where/how I got my username, it's inspired by my ultimate childhood book series, Warriors, by Erin Hunter, and I just love the -blaze suffix! I'm also a "spirit"ed, passionate person, and the -spirit prefix softens -blaze & gives it a lively yet feminine feel.
15 Facts About Me:
1. I am a 22-year-old college girl studying at Penn State University. I am currently majoring in Community, Environment, and Development (CED), with an emphasis in International Development and a minor in ESL (English as a Second Language).
2. As far as my career goals go, I hope to travel & work through organizations such as the Peace Corps and teach English abroad upon graduation.
3. I'm very right-brained, and I was one of those peeps in high school who was very good at English-related subjects, but absolutely HORRIBLE and useless when it came to math- and science-related subjects.
4. I work as an volunteer & outreach intern within the children's and women's ministries during the summer months.
5. I love the great outdoors and fun, adventurous outdoors activities such as rock-climbing, hiking, kayaking, etc.
6. My other hobbies include reading, writing, dancing, and martial arts.
8. I am quite a sunset & sunrise fanatic, but more so with sunsets (mostly because I am NOT a morning person whatsoever).
9. I love animals of every shape & size! I am also both a cat AND dog person. I just could never choose. ;P
10. I am rather short & small for my age.
11. I am mostly German (Swiss-German, to be precise) by ancestry, with a smaller mixture of Italian and Scandinavian ancestry as well. It is my hope to become fluent in German one day as a result (I am also currently studying it for my minor, though).
12. I am semi-proficient/fluent in Spanish & and know some basic (emphasis on basic) conversational Arabic.
13. I am a major Greek Mythology nerd. I fact, I am a major nerd for any mythology in general tbh.
13. I was born midsummer. Literally. :O
14. As far as traveling goes, I have been to Canada, Mexico, & Iceland. I'd love to travel a lot more in the future, especially to overlooked & underrated "flyover" countries, such as Slovenia, Croatia, Malaysia, etc.
14. I am a Christian, and I believe in God & Jesus as my Savior. :)
I have five babies:
1. Najoko - a male sable-&-white rough collie
2. Prowler - a male golden-yellow Labrador retriever
3. Teeka - a female dilute/silver tortoiseshell
4. Milo - a male cream tabby who looks like a mini cougar
5. Leia - a female "torbie" (which refers to a cat with both tortoiseshell & tabby markings)
