hi! welcome to my more in-depth about me page. if you're here by mistake, and i don't blame you (just don't tell me that), click here to leave or scroll down to the bottom to find my other pages on neopets. without further ado, let's begin. i must warn you that i'm not a terribly interesting person, but it's very flattering for you to want to read about me!
i'd like to quickly add in the excerpts i've taken above are inspired and from the mass effect series! though i love jaal very much, thane is actually my favorite character. i don't care what anyone says, every scene of his was absolutely beautiful. however jaal is a close second. i love my alien boyfriends too much!
now, who exactly am i? if it isn't obvious enough, my name is selena. i tried to make the avatar at the top of the page the most accurate as possible to myself; i do currently have short, dark brown hair (i didn't mean to cut it this short, but life happens) and wear glasses. i really wouldn't be surprised if i was clinically blind without them on because i would seriously be helpless if i didn't own a pair. and i have to clarify this: despite what appearances say, my favorite color is not pink. it's actually red! but what can i say, pink is a close second... i've embraced my inner pinkaholic and am currently obsessed with all things pink on neopets and irl. i live in virginia, which is a state in the united states for all of you non-USAers. i live 30 minutes away from the capital, though who would want to ever be that close to trump willingly (yes, i don't like him for a variety of reasons but this site isn't the place to talk about that!)?? it's very calm and quite boring here, but in a way i like that. there isn't much to worry about, though i would like to move out to a different state eventually. i'm a mixed girl who identifies as gray-ace and queer, and i go by she/her pronouns. being both korean and mexican, i've had to experience a lot of ignorance growing up on both sides; however it's made me into a better person today so i'm glad i was able to understand why it was happening to me and why it needs to change not just for me, but everyone in my position. i'm not diagnosed, but i do go through a lot of depression-like stages along with troubling thoughts every day. (why am i not diagnosed? because this country doesn't care about mental health enough to acknowledge it on most insurances, and i'm not paying full out-of-pocket to confirm something i kind of know i already have. i do not support self-diagnosis!) it's very hard to deal with it daily, so neopets is sometimes an escapism that which i'm grateful for.
i've been playing neopets on and off for about half of my life now, and whether i like it or not it's been a big part of my life. sometimes i leave, but it's never for long. i'm pretty confident that i will be playing until the site closes. on here i don't do very much anymore. i'm quite shy and not a very talkative person so unless i'm in a guild you won't hear a peep from me. however it doesn't mean i'm not friendly and not a good listener, so if i can help anyone, i would be more than happy to. i'm always, always, always looking for ways to improve my account! my hobbies include collecting avatars, i've been wanting to have at least 300 for a long time but that number has long eluded me as a player. i think i will get there eventually, but it is a super slow climb. i love trophies too! my goal is to get one from every flash game, but i know that's going to take a while... i also love my pets dearly, a lot of them i've gotten from the help of extremely kind people on this site, and with what i've done with them so far i hope i made them proud. some people may call them pixels, for me they are my pride and joy and i treasure every one i have!
