I'm Weisel! I live in the United States and move fairly often between the NE and SW. Even though I use German sometimes, I assure you I am far from fluent; it's a language that comforts me but I don't use it outside of my mom's household so if I embarrass myself with my poor abilities, that's why. I'm trying to get better, though.

I've attended four semesters at two different universities to study art, environmental science, music technology, and I plan to attend massage school in the fall. I've worked several jobs in the past, though I am currently unemployed in preparation for my next move to New York. I've worked as a salesperson for a bakery, a helper on a small wildlife conservation, a sales floor worker at Target, a baker at a coffee shop, a manager at a not-for-profit thrift store, a teacher's assistant at a private academy, a cashier at an electronics store, a writer for a visual novel company, and a cashier at a Käthe Wohlfahrt store. I'm also a certified Reiki master and an ordained minister. I'd love to learn beekeeping soon, too.

I enjoy creating things, mainly writing, sewing, knitting, and baking. I really love cosplay, not only for making and wearing costumes, but also meeting people through the hobby and having some great experiences I wouldn't have otherwise.

I enjoy traveling for any reason, even if it ends up being a trip involving driving for days on end or sleeping at a cafe table to wait for a flight. There's always something to gain from even the worst experiences. My favorite places have been colder places like Maine and Alaska. I've been to the Netherlands, Ghana, France, Norway, and nearly all the states in the US.

I come from a very musical family and have been heavily involved in music throughout my education. I've played piano, trumpet, mellophone, euphonium, french horn, and concertina. My sister and I are both very passionate about music and have recently started creating works together; she's getting her master's degree in music performance and has started working on her own compositions that I in turn help edit, perform, and record. Just this past winter, I got her addicted to No.6. (And her reaction to the end was silently crying and telling me "Nezumi's being annoying.")

I myself wasn't aware of No.6's existence until a little over two years ago when my ex-girlfriend introduced me to it and I have been completely in love with the series ever since. (In complete honesty, not a single day has gone by that I haven't thought of Nezumi and Shion.) The series has inspired me in a seemingly infinite amount of ways. It's given me the drive to improve my writing and cosplay skills, better myself as a person in physical, mental, and spiritual aspects, and it's gotten me through some very difficult times. (I know it sounds overdramatic, but No.6 has been a lifeline for me countless times.) It's kept me from giving up through some nasty things like surgery complications, physical health issues, and some really awful mental issues. (Which by the way, I'm absolutely always willing to talk about those kinds of things if anyone wants or needs. I'll never ignore a request to discuss those things. It's important!)

Being able to help others makes me happier than anything else. I'll always offer all the help I can to anyone who asks. That's a very important part of who I am! Honestly, there are a lot of bad things that have happened in my life that have really affected me, though I'd like to stick with the positive here. Basically, my family life is like a terrible soap opera and it's a miracle I'm still alive today. On the bright side, I've always managed to learn something from those experiences, and I feel that with the ridiculous range of life issues I've experienced, I'll be able to understand and help a lot more people than I would otherwise. Once I've settled down and have some stability in my life, I'd really like to foster kids, mainly "problematic" teenagers, and all these lessons I've learned in life will help me be the parent they need.

That's most of what I can think of at the moment. A few other details are that I'm 21, very short, and have a very, very cute pet cat.
