Hellos, this is my third introduction! However, the last two sucked pretty bad and didn't really say much about me. So, here goes:
My real name is Ash (ok, ok, Ashley, but don't call me that, only my mum calls me that when she's mad at me). My fake name is Arlikra, in case you didn't notice that already. Look at my avatar and you'll see where it comes from (18.03.1988 is my date of birth). You also might assume that I am a bit of a science geek, and you'll be right. I find chemistry very interesting, although I have no real intention to study it to a high level. I also have an interest in astronomy; I have been fascinated by space for most of my life.
I am a huge soccer fan, and I am a season ticket holder at Stoke City Football Club. I used to play a lot when I was younger (almost every night after school for at least 2 hours), but unfortunately as I have grown up my playing time has whittled down to one 40 minute 5-a-side match per week. As a result, I do not get enough exercise and I am starting to put on a bit of extra weight for the first time in 17 years! I am trying to remedy this by taking up badminton; we have installed a net in our back garden.
I love to read, but again I don't do so as much as I would like. My favourite books include anything by Roald Dahl, Harry Potter, Twilight Saga, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, of course. I'm also a big fan of Darren Shan. My other less interesting hobbies and interests, listed in no particular order, include: trying to collect Pokemon cards, playing IRC trivia, thinking about quitting smoking but not actually doing it, and learning all the bus routes in my city.
I see the good in everybody, which is both a good and a bad thing. I respect everybody for who they are and I don't judge anybody without good reason. I feel guilty when I am rude to somebody, even when they deserved it. I respect everybody's opinions as long as they are presented maturely (unless you support Manchester United).
What I do
At the moment, I am officially a bum. I've just attempted college for the fourth time and failed miserably. I cannot find the motivation to do anything at all. I think I am going to get a job and earn some money for a while, learn to drive and get a car, and then see what I want to do (I have no idea at the moment). I live with my mum right now, so I really want to get a place of my own so I can have a bit more independence. That's about it, at the moment.
The bit about diapers, added as an afterthought
I am mostly DL, but on the AB side I'm more of a mischevious toddler when awake, and more baby when I want to go to sleep.
That's all I can think to say. Please ask me questions!
