About:My name is Amanda Keel, and I am a junior in college, majoring in Anthropology and minoring in history and theatre (soon I will be double-majoring in English). It is my fondest goal in life to travel the world (I aim to be a travel writer), and share it's fantastic array of culture and customs with everybody. I also wish to settle down in England and live out my days there. I have a terrible sweet-tooth/carnivorous side, so lately, I've taken to calorie counting like crazy (blast, I just ate 360 calories of chocolate chip cookies...). My goal is to drop 25 pounds (I only weigh 135), and be able to fit into my war reanactment clothing at the start of January! (Go revolution/ww2 reanactments!) But, that's beside the point. I have a fond love of anime, my most obsessive love being for Hetalia, which is about world culture, so need I say more. I'm also bonkers for Steampunk, which I recently jumped on board with (whereas my brother dived off the deep-end). Since I have a pretty adventurous, very travelsome side, my brother (self-appointed gadgeteer, who had his first steamy outfit together a day after learning about it, and a gun a week later) nominated me captain of whatever intrepid crew we are. He's going to buy me a pith helmet soon. I can't wait. I enjoy spending copious amounts of time with my friends, when they are available (and I also got quite a few in my 'crew'), and whilst with them, we do many crazy, random, unexplainable things. Like raid Goodwill's (which is very profitable), and act like drunkards on the Newport Levvy (near the Ohio River), just to mimick the people we see stumbling out of the bars 'round there. (I do not, will not, and forever shan't drink any form of alcohol) Hmmm...I also own 4 cats, but that isn't very interesting. Random skills of mine? I can draw (not at novice level, but not quite up to my heroes standards), I can sing (Soprano Soprano 1: i.e. Christine Daeae), I've been trained in mime (yes, really). I'm very opinionated, but that isn't really a skill, and I warn you not to set off my rantinator, in which, for bigotry, close-mindedness, and senseless hate, I will rant you into the bowels of the earth. And that's me! Thanks for reading!
