Dislikes: religously sullen people, heights, the heat, hot days, sleeping alone (without my boyfriend!!!;_;) girls who are too thin for their own good, guys who are too thin for their own good, shallow people, cheaters (like on spouses. I can't STAND it! Biggest pet peeve! Never actually happened to me though...), solicitors, having so many pop up ads come up that they crash your computer, spam mail, preachy people, close minded people, rap and country music, and round cars.

Note: I've been drawing anime since 5th grade, and drawing in general my whole life. Learning to draw is hard, but it also takes LOTS of practice. I suggest learning how to copy (freehand) pre-existing pictures, memorize and learn how to draw from memory pre-existing characters, then develop your own. As for character development, all characters start out 2D (meaning 2 basic personality traits) but those are your steps to build from. Eventually, characters take on a life of their own, and almost become real people for you! They'll seem to write themselves.
