My name is Riyo.
Yes, I am Canadian.
I'm 16, female, pansexual, and Pagan.
I'm in grade 12.
My birthday is November 17.
My favourite things are anime, manga, and video games.
I can root anything I do down to one of those somehow,
but that doesn't always mean it's the actual reason I'm doing it.
I'm a grammar whore.
I type like this all the time.
I'm not an artist or a poet.
I'm barely a writer.
Sometimes, I wish I were a boy, but not as often anymore.
Sometimes, I just wish I was a lesbian.
I kinda wish I was Sora.
Kingdom Hearts owns my soul.
I also love Final Fantasy and Zelda.
Kyou Kara Maou is my favourite anime, and Gravitation is my favourite
I also love Ouran High School Host Club (anime) and Black Cat
I hate Death Note, so don't even go there.
However, I do like Naruto, though I'm not very far,
and the idiots running around worshipping it makes me ashamed of
I love cats, and someday want to be a crazy, old cat lady
(but my mom told me, "Don't you dare.").
I recently moved in with my dad,
which means I also now live with his girlfriend, Larissa, and my
I keep in touch with my mother,
who currently lives on the other side of the country.
What I really want to do when I'm older is voice acting,
but I'm most likely going to be a teacher.
An English teacher.
I don't know much Japanese yet,
but I memorized the hiragana chart,
I know some kanji, and I'm working on the language.
There aren't any classes at my school, so learning makes it difficult,
and I'm probably not going to learn much until I take a class in
I love Japanese music, but also English music.
Sometimes, I feel like crawling into a corner and dying,
but I don't do any drugs, smoke, or drink
(except for special occassions on that one, of course).
I feel like I'm the odd one out anywhere I go.
I try to be happy for everyone all the time,
but it never really works like that.
I'm ADHD and I don't take Ritalin anymore,
so I get frustrated and confused easily,
plus I have a shortish attention span.
Multi-tasking is not an option--it's a must.
My mottos are:
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Live your own life, for you die your own death.
I honestly believe everything will work out, in the end.
