Well, hullo there. I'd have to start off by admitting I'm not the best at introductory posts. I'm not an awkward person but talking about oneself for an indefinite amount of time can lead to certain awkwardness, right? No? That's just me then. Right, getting to the point. My name is Renée, and I am 20 years-old. I constantly panic over age (seriously freaking out about turning 21 soon, eek!) and over lots of things, really. I tend to have what I call an obsessive personality (nothing diagnosed but something that makes me really, really, REALLY get involved in things for certain periods of time) and often engage in what can only be described as 'fangirling'. Hardly a fangirl though, since I certainly do not have the energy to devote myself to just one thing. I'm passionate about a few things in my life - namely, writing. I began writing when I was about 11, and some of the characters I created then have made it all the way to 2011, re-vamped and improved, of course, but in essence, still there. I'm also very passionate about sports, football (not the American kind) and please don't call it soccer, and tennis mostly. I am a fervent Manchester United supporter and tend to get very, very worked up during match-days. You've been warned. Roger Federer will always be number 1 to me, and Rafael Nadal is just someone I like pretending does not exist sometimes. My favourite football player is Owen Hargreaves, former Manchester United midfielder and now belonging to Manchester City (here's where I succumb to tears). Calling him a traitor is probably not going to enrage me and will definitely turn me off to future football conversations with said offender. For some reason, I think this is the most important part of this post, really. I get emotionally invested in pretty much everything I do and I am admittedly, a worrier. I stress out and freak out and there is not a day in my life where you can touch my shoulders and not find them cramped with knots. My other general interests are anime, though I don't watch too much anymore, comic books, RPGs (video and text-based), poetry, languages, art and music. I do not play any instruments but I am hopelessly attracted to piano-players and artists in general make me go weak at the knees. I don't see what's so particularly alluring about French (currently studying it though) but I'm in love with other Romance languages so ... I don't know. It's strange. Well, I think that's enough for a first post. I'd love to get to know people here, as I believe that being in an environment where everyone else is struggling with his or her craft might definitely ease the burden, at least for me. Looking forward to getting to know you!
