I haven't updated my LJ in quite a while as my busy quota has risen exponentially, so as a sorry, here is a meme stolen from a friend on LJ. ^-^
Name(s) you go by:
My actual name is Megan, but I go by so many nicknames its hard to remember them all sometimes. Close friends call me Sweets, Princess, Megs, Meggers and Nut-Meg. My dad likes to call me Megs or Megga-roo. My mother likes to call me Meggie or Megan. My sister calls me Smudge (inside joke), Meggo or Seester. I don't honestly care which nickname is used, I love all of them since they were given to me by people I love and care about.
Where you lurk (social sites, other journals, etc):
I don't use Twitter as I believe, unless you are famous, there is no need to continuously update people on where and what you are doing, especially if your life is not that interesting. I have no need to know when your last bowel movement was or that you decided to buy a slurpee.
LiveJournal and Facebook, along with my DeviantArt page is where you will likely find me.
Birthday and signs:
June 9, 1988 makes me a Gemini. Year of the Dragon.
I consider myself Atheist/Agnostic as I wasn't raised with any specific religion aside from Unitarian Universalism which promotes the understanding and acceptance of all walks of life and religious beliefs. I do believe in the "human spirit" in the scientific sense, where all humans have a life energy that can neither be created or destroyed. I do not believe in a deity or an all-mighty God-like figure, angels or miracles. Science is my religion of choice.
I consider myself quite heterosexual yet I do think women are incredibly beautiful and sexual beings.
I personally love men, their bodies, the way they hold themselves, the deep voices, I find it all very attractive. Specifically, East Asian men or a man with dark hair and brown/black eyes hold my biggest attraction.
I have had 5 relationships with men and have immensely enjoyed all of them, even during all the drama each relationship held. One of the five was an Asian, another was Spanish from Puerto Rico, the rest were all mixed Caucasian. (The race is not of utter importance, but I find it interesting to note. ^-^)
A relationship with a woman would not be a wish of mine, but I wouldn't say no to a sexual encounter because, as I have mentioned above, women are sometimes very enticing.
This year will be my final year (hopefully) in the Communications department at Eastern Washington University. I am trying to acquire a Bachelors in Communications Studies with a Double Minor in Japanese and ESLG (English as a Second Language Education/General). I want to teach English progressively in Japan and S. Korea for at least 5 years and then move on to France, Spain or Denmark.
Favorites of television/books/games/anime/music:
TV: The Soup, Arrested Development, The Big Bang Theory, Archer, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Challenge, My Ghost Story, Celebrity Ghost Stories, I Survived, Jersey Shore (I know, its lame), Castle, Burn Notice, Avatar: The Last Airbender, American Dad, Robot Chicken and anything on Travel Channel.
Books: I read so many books so this answer will just be my three favorites, "The Mercy Thompson Series" by Patricia Briggs, "The Warded Man" by Peter V. Brett and "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arther C. Clarke.
Games: UNO, Solitaire and Apples to Apples.
Music: I love pretty much anything when it comes to music. Any language, any style, I don't care, music is a universal language. My favorite genre is Pop but I also listen to Blues, Bluegrass, Rock, Techno and Country. I used to hate country but it has slowly grown on me over the years for reasons unknown to me. I have a lot of Kpop and Jpop music, yet Kpop has taken over much of the Jpop.
Favorite Artists: TVXQ, Big Bang, SHINee, Davichi, G.NA, The Killers, Imogen Heap and OceanLab
Tastes (foods, smells, colors, sounds):
Foods: I love to eat, especially with friends. My food loves are diverse and span from the basic hamburger to exotic Thai and Korean dishes. Specifically, my favorite foods are okonomiyaki, chicken enchiladas, bulgogi, kimchi and cream puffs. My favorite drinks are Cafe Au Late, Macha Latte and Lychee Bubble Tea.
Smells: I love the smell of my father's old leather jacket and my mother's aloe body cream, it reminds me of my childhood, of watching my mother get ready in the morning and my father's hug on a cold winter afternoon. The smell of just rained on Pine trees, new books and anything Mint. Simple smells.
Colors: I love anything pastel, especially pastel blues and greens. I wear a lot of whites, blacks and grays, although turquoise blue looks the best against my skin. Favorite color is white.
Sounds: My father lightly strumming his guitar to the sounds of my mother cooking or fiddling about. Japanese or Korean language chatter. Heels on a hard-wood floor. The soft hum of an electric fan. Rain on my parent's house's tin roof.
Talents: Writing has always been the one true talent I posses and care most about. Without writing, I do believe I would never have an escape from life. I can edit papers and stories/books incredibly well and in a short amount of time. Very factual and can state facts off the top of my head quickly and easily.
Quirky or strange habits?
I still bite my nails and have a tendency to procrastinate until there is no more time for procrastination. I like to imagine I am in a movie of my own life.
Languages (speak, learning, want to learn) and places you have visited/want to visit:
English was/is my native tongue. I am fluent in Japanese yet still learning. I am learning to speak French and Spanish. I want to learn Korean. I have visited Japan (2003) and Canada and have traveled all over the United States. I would love to visit S. Korea, France, the United Kingdom, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Brazil and New Zealand.
Own any pets?
An old, Alzheimer ridden Husky/Lab/German Shepherd mix named Corky. I love him with all my heart!
Favorite animal - domesticated, wild or fictional:
Dogs, Horses, Deer and Panda....well, okay and Hippogriffs.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Teaching English is Japan or S. Korea. Dating or engaged to a wonderful man. Hopefully have a book published.
