Author has written 5 stories for Warriors, Lion King, and Troy.
Hiya! :) I'm Spiritblaze, Spirit, Blaze, or Blazeh...whichever you prefer. In case you're wondering where/how I got my username, it's based on Warriors (one of my all-time favorite book series!), & 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. Thus, my username was born! :3
1. I am a 21 year old girl & a college junior at Penn State University. I currently major in Community, Environment, and Development Sciences (CED), with an emphasis in International Development.
2. As far as my career goals go, I hope to become an English teacher to those both nation- and world- wide with English as their second language (ESL).
3. I'm one of those right-brained people who was very good at English-related subjects, but absolutely HORRIBLE at Math in high school. And I still am to this day. xD
4. In my spare time, I am an active member of my church's young adult/college group, and during the summer months, I volunteer and intern within the children's and women's ministries.
5. I love the great outdoors, & I always jump at the chance to participate in fun, adventurous outdoors activities.
6. Some of my other hobbies include dancing, reading, writing, and martial arts.
7. I am quite a sunset & sunrise fanatic. If the sunrise forecast sounds particularly promising for the next morning, I WILL get up early to see it, even if it's summer or a day off work/classes.
8. I love animals of every shape & size!
9. I'm short & small for my age.
10. I'm half-Italian & half-German, and I would hope to become fluent in either or both of those languages (although I am currently learning to speak Italian).
11. I am semi proficient/fluent in Spanish, and I am also currently learning Arabic.
12. I'm a Greek Mythology nerd.
13. I was born midsummer. Literally. :O
14. I am a Christian, & I believe in God and Jesus as my Savior. :)
I have five babies:
1. Najoko - a beautiful, lovable, & huge "Lassie dog" sable-&-white rough collie. As my first dog, he is my best friend & of course, the best dog anybody could ask for. He is extremely intelligent, loves to shake "paws," affectionate, loving, mellow, & adores kids. He's my buddy. :)
2. Prowler - the most hyper & crazy, yet loyal & loving American yellow lab you'll ever meet. He has the cutest brown eyes, but he doesn't sit still for one moment. He's definitely an overgrown pup! xD
3. Teeka - my spoiled little princess of a house-cat. She is a dilute/silver tortoiseshell, & the sassiest little cat in the world. She is extremely affectionate and friendly, and this energetic bundle loves to play & stay up all night, with her favorite game being "laser lights." She's something else! xD
4. Milo - my little "creampuff" & Teeka's brother. He is as different from her as night is day. He is a cream tabby & looks like a mini-cougar, but he is anything but, with his very laid-back & lazy temperament. Extremely intelligent, he seems to greatly enjoy trying to figure out the ways of humans and understanding English. He always has a "philosopher" look on his face, and in general, he's just a "gentle giant" & a pushover. xD
5. Leia - a torbie (both tortoiseshell & tabby markings) we rescued during a snowstorm (the 2012 "Snowpocalypse," to be exact). Yes, she is named after the Star Wars character. Despite being irresistibly adorable, she is still extremely shy & distrustful, mostly a stereotypical cat (whereas the other two tend to behave more like dogs).
