Hey everyone, My name is Riley, and I'm fifteen years old. I attend Alberni District Secondary, and am in the tenth grade. I own two American Quarter Horse mares, both are registered. I've had Lily for four years, and I used to show her in AQHA shows, but she got tired of them so we bought Phoebe a couple months ago, and she's my new show horse. I'm self-diagnosed OCD. I'm really anal about a lot of things... Some may call me a perfectionist, but I really wouldn't say that. I like things proper, but there are many things I don't keep in good condition. My room, for example. My mood depends on the cleanliness of my environment, and when my room is a mess, I feel like ****. But it's always dirty, because I'm lazy. I hate hypocrites, but I am one, which is extremely hypocritical. Isn't it funny? Yeah, I truly thought it was. Grammar and Punctuation and Spelling are HUGE pet peeves for me - don't you just hate it when people mix up their "there/their/they're" ? I could whip a shoe at them. Same with "through/threw" and "to/too" ... I have literally been incapable of reading posts, stories and poems because of these mistakes. I really like anime, but I'm not a huge anime junkie, yet another one of my semi-contradictions. I'm nuts for it, but I'm not a huge, huge fan. It makes sense though - I enjoy watching it but I'm not going to cosplay. I like Death Note, Elfen Lied, and of course Inu-Yasha. My favourite books... Well, I flick between different authors, series, etcetera. Harry Potter is a classic series, and they'll always be my number one favourite, even if I don't touch one of them for a year. I - like many - have been afflicted with the Twilight Fever. I'm nuts for Twilight. I'm pretty much going through a vampire phase, actually, because I bought the Blue Bloods books, and fell in love with them, also... My writing is really rather erratic, and I personally believe I need help on my sentence structures, but... My point is, when I have an idea, there's no reason for it. I may unknowingly be influenced by a book / movie / song, but I never have the same ideas twice. I can be inspired to write a love story, and then be inspired to write a story about something that could TOTALLY be an anime movie. I'm weird. My pastimes include writing, drawing, riding, playing video games (anything Zelda, Final Fantasy, Harvest Moon, Guitar Hero) and playing instruments. I play the flute, recorder (HAHA), alto saxophone, trumpet, and am learning guitar and piano. I can't sing, but love music... MUSIC IS MY LOVER. Music gives me muse when nothing else does. Cures my writer's block. If you want to know what I listen to, feel free to ask me. That's enough about me, although I could go on for days. Riles.
