I collect a wide variety of things! My whole life I have had a desire to gather -maybe even some would say hoard- the things that I find interesting or like. Uglydolls, Nendoroids, Figma, Animal Crossing, Dollfie Dream, Pullip, BJD, and other video game memorabilia and dolls are just some of the things I collect. Maybe it's a disorder- I'm not sure, but I have the hardest time letting go of things. I still have most of the toys from my childhood.
I love my animals dearly, none of them being any less than equal to myself or each other. They are what I hold dearest to my heart. I am a gamer and have been playing video games for the better portion of my life. I'm studying Japanese regularly, though I often forget half of what I learned and have to start over. With half of an interior design course finished, I've finally decided what I really want to do. After getting married to my amazing boyfriend I'm going to go to school and get my education degree, then get TESL/TEFL certified. Eventually I plan to go to Japan to teach, possibly other countries along the way.
I was un-employed selling on only eBay for a living for quite some time. When asked about a gap in employment it's really hard for me not to tell the truth, but I worry about how it would effect potential employers opinions on me. I recently decided that I am going to tell the truth in any future interviews, and what they decide can be entirely up to them. I will also tell the truth here, because I think it is very important that everyone has a better understanding of what is going on in the world around us. For five years I was in an extremely abusive relationship. I was not allowed to work. Because I would be yelled at if I did have a job, accused of cheating, stalked, and harassed at work.. I gave up working for four years. Which unfortunately created a major gap in my employment.
Eventually I got a job at a toy store. I will not say which one as I don't think that I'm allowed to even though I no longer work there- though it probably wouldn't be that difficult to figure out. At this store I have managed to find some of the best people you could ever meet. Within a year I have began to feel like they are an extended family. Without a doubt these people are some of the most caring, compassionate people I could ever meet! I am so grateful for the time I've been able to spend with them! I love working, and am currently looking for a job in which I can truly focus on not only earning more money but enjoying the work I do.
