A Little About Myself
I prefer to go by Val; it's short and sweet, *kinda* like me! ^_^
Originally from the perpetual summer state of [south] Florida, I transplanted myself here to Portland in late August of 2016. Having resumed my college studies, I am a part-time student majoring as a Veterinarian Technician with a minor in Architecture. I love writing, in particular, and have been slowly working on writing a few books over the last couple years... anyway!
Being a lover of arts and animals, I spend a lot of my free time gushing over furry critters I run into on the street and pursuing a wide variety of artistic endeavors; painting, sewing, drawing, modeling, making jewelry, sculpting, etc.
However, I am a lifelong nerd and gamer, I particularly love playing videogames when I can find the time, and am rather good at them. I prefer RPG style games, but I also enjoy first person shooters! Lets play ;) Just as well, I love to go to comic-cons and have recently begun getting into cosplaying!
Still, I like to make time to focus on my health, being a regular practitioner of yoga and trying to get at least 2hrs of workouts in per week. As such, I enjoy a litany of active and outdoorsy adventures; hiking, swimming, camping, fishing, boating, climbing, running, etc.
Let's get to know each other! ~(^_^)~
