I have a habit of speaking very formally. I am a goofball in real life who focuses very seriously on his academics.

I am not a very true artist, just one who likes to see pictures. I have an inappreciable ability to draw, and I have very little interest in developing my skills in the field of visual art. If anything, I am much more into the fields of theatre acting and singing, for they are my main artistic passions. I am both enthralled and intimidated by the community here since it so large and variable. I have not yet found my niche in any community, but chances are that I have stepped in at least a small part of most.

I am interested in the business of voice acting, so, if you need an amateur voice actor, I would be glad to be of service. I am your average kind of nonprofessional with a pop guard and studio microphone who records in a basement; not a recording studio, but I am very diligent. I am willing to provide contact information to anyone considering me for a voice actor role or tryout. Additionally, I am interested in doing audio readings for anyone (be it CreepyPasta, poetry, prose, or whatever it is).

As you may see in my gallery, I do write from time to time. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer in the literature field. I have several poems, prosaic poems, and prose works. My first (and currently only) DD was a literature submission. I've written a dark fan-ficiton for My Little Pony, but I don't consider myself a very hardcore writer, or Brony, for that matter. I upload essays I've done for school, and I very rarely feel inspired to write. However, when I am, I am usually very satisfied with my work, and I'm sure something I've done will speak to you.

Photography is the other thing I do. Mostly, it's sky and landscape pictures; whatever I happen to catch happening above me I tend to take a picture of if I think it's nice.

I do llamas for llamas, but I neither do WATCH for WATCH nor FAVE for FAVE. I reserve these to my personal tastes.

I am extremely busy with my schoolwork and rarely am on for long periods of time. I am also willing to proofread for anyone who can afford to wait until I acquire the time to get to proofreading the work. I find it is an enjoyable and helpful way to employ my skill in orthography, diction, and grammar when my creativity is devoted to non-writing ends. Anyone interested should feel free to send me a note, expressing his or her interest, on this site, and we can become acquainted and discuss the business.

I use Dogecoin.

I have done it!  After over a month I've finally completed the entire reading for an MLP fanfiction I waited over a month to get the permission for.  For some reason, the work struck me, and I really hope I did it justice, as I do with any reading.  I hate to say that it's a relief to have it finished, but that's exactly how I feel.  It was a huge undertaking, and, although I don't anticipate getting a proportional reaction for it, I'm pretty proud, and I think I've learned a good bit from doing it.  I will now be able to move on to some other works, but I'll probably limit myself to one-shot fanfictions for time being so I don't burn myself out.

A frog in my throat caused by a sudden onset of seasonal allergies precluded me from getting this done a week sooner, but it is done.  I'll embed the first video installment of the series here and accompany it with a link to a playlist containing all six videos below.

Anyway, that's that.  What's new?  Okay.  I still have some photography yet to be uploaded in my folders.  It is out of laziness that I have forgone to upload them.  I also have several poems to share with you all, but I will wait to upload them when school is finished.  I think some of them are really good, and I hope you all get a kick out of them.

I don't know if I'll have much to offer other than those after school's done for me.  I don't write much in my spare time, and I intend to work a summer job this summer, so I'll have less time for those things, and I think I'll continue with these readings because I enjoy doing them so much.  If it proves that I have much more time this summer, I may do more editing projects; FIMFiction seems to have some demand for editors, and doing that work might help to get my name out there more.  Something to think about.

For now, though, I have AP tests in Music Theory and Harmony and Calculus AB to prepare for and the second half of my senior project to work on.  I'm a little nervous about this because it is an oral presentation that must feature a group activity, and I don't have many ideas at the moment.  If I do as well on it, though, as I did on the first section, I'll have a lot to be happy about; I got the best score on the writing portion of my senior project out of all my peers in honors under the same teacher, and she is a stringent grader.  I didn't get a perfect on it, but I didn't expect to, either.

I went to a party recently.  It wasn't what I expected it to be, but it was nice nonetheless.

A friend started to draw pictures ponifying me.  I didn't ask him to, and I'm very flattered.  Check it out!

I just got back from an audition for the school talent show.  I'm pretty certain I've made it into the performance scheduled for this Friday.  I'm looking forward to it.  I'll be singing House of the Rising Sun by The Animals.

Oh, I guess this is where I should mention that I'm going to do my very best to get around to all of these llama-related notifications I have.  I hope I'm not disappointing anyone by my inactivity regarding uploading accompanied by ravenous llama hunting.  ^^;

However, I don't expect to get too much done in light of how I lost sleep over the course of the weekend and didn't sleep well last night.  It's been warm for the first time this year, which may have had something to deal with it.  I also was up until 10:30 waiting for my video to upload so I could close the browser.  That was exciting, and I was also probably nervous for the audition today.  Yeah, probably not the best circumstances for sleeping.

I have been tagged by the chronic stone-smacking, sword-wielding, Brony sir :icontemplar127:

Rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Each person must say 5 things about themselves in their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create five new questions for the people you tag to answer.  (Not tagging)
4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.  (Why are you even reading these rules?)
5. No tag backs.  (Noted.)
6. No stuff in the tagging section about "You're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 10 people.

Five things about myself...
1.  I often find myself looking up the definitions to simple words I commonly use just because I want to make sure I have the definitions straight.
2.  I don't LARP, but I think it would be fun to do it sometime.
3.  I'm currently concerned with writing a 2- to 3-minute long original composition for at least four different parts.  It doesn't have to be a classical chorale writing, but it has to make musical sense.  I intend to write part for myself as a bass singer, and I intend to feature a cellist, but beyond this I have no ideas for instrumentations because I know very few trustworthy musicians who could possibly be available to play this.  It is mandatory that this composition be rehearsed and played live for my teacher.  I'm pretty consternated right now.
4.  I've contemplated writing a sequel to the MLP fanfic I wrote.  I'm not really drafting it because I'm scared of what might happen if I elaborate upon a story whose reception I'm not sure I can gauge well, but I still keep getting interesting ideas for it.
5.  I have only ever lost one flashdrive.

Questions from :icontemplar127:
1. What made you become a brony?
I was not forced, but I was intrigued by what few glimpses I saw of the community on here and in some of the people I knew at school.  I think Bronies, collectively, can be very awesome beyond just being a novelty.  I had a funny feeling Bronies would accept somebody like me.

2. Favorite video game?
That's a tough one.  How does one pick?  I could go by numbers:  I've played Sly Cooper 2:  Band of Thieves the most times out of any game I've played, but I probably wouldn't play that game ever again except maybe for the dialogue now. 
I'd probably say that Kingdom Hearts is the most crucial game I've ever played.  It's what got me into the Final Fantasy series, which was what first brought me into a related roleplaying community.  That community introduced me to anime, and anime introduced me to people who introduced me to dA and CreepyPastas.
I loved the soundtrack for The Shadow of the Colossus and enjoyed bits of the gameplay and animations, but the plot was horrible.
On the other hand, I loved the plot and soundtrack to Final Fantasy IV but especially hated the gameplay there.
The Sly Cooper series has held me as a loyal fan, but the music is not very special, and the latest installment was unsettlingly different and lost me.  Dare I say it was flat?
So many other games I love too much.  I fear I can't concisely or definitively answer that question.

3. How's Season 5 of MLP FIM treating you?
I actually haven't been actively watching it but, despite all the fanart and fanfics I've noticed apparently being released in reactions to it and the new characters, I don't think the newest episodes have been spoiled for me yet.  I'm still halfway through season four yet and probably won't continue watching until school's over.

4. What do you think Starlight Glimmer is plotting?
Is that the orchid-colored mare?  I haven't got any idea, considering I've stayed away from anything that might tell me too much about her character before I watch the episodes involving her.

5. Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer, or Starlight Glimmer?
I guess I don't have a fair choice, not knowing one of the candidates.  If I must choose between the former two based on what I've seen, I'd end up choosing Twilight because I relate very well to her sometimes.  Obviously, though, that's not really a fair judgement, considering how Sunset Shimmer is not a very deeply developed character from what I've seen of her so far.  It makes me wonder if she shows up in subsequent episodes I haven't yet gotten to.

I hope I didn't surprise anyone unpleasantly with these responses.

These stories are a Dark/Sad/Tragic prequel and sequel from FIMFiction.net and were written by ObeySaturnGod.

The author's description for the prequel,

Twilight is ecstatic with her new journal and the prospect of writing her life's adventures, eager to begin.  However, one unfortunate event leads to a spiral of terrible luck and decisions, culminating in a horrific tragedy.

Viewer discretion is advised on account of certain levels of gore, disturbing implications, and suicidal themes.  The story is centered on Twilight, but a whole host of characters get involved in the sequel.

You can find a playlist on my YouTube profile, but I'll include all of the videos as embedded links.
