Who Am I?
My Life Line
November 15, 2000 is the moment my epic journey started. I'd say this was a pretty important time in my life, considering it was how this mess started...
Our first house, I moved from before I turned 3, so I don't remember it. The second house, I was 5 and I went to kindergarten there, so I remember it better. It wasn't that hard for me, but it was a change I needed to get used to.
The Death of a Family Member
This happened when I was 11, so a big time gap. It was my grandfather. May 3, 2016 marks the 4-year anniversary. It's been quite a while, but I still haven't really grasped the fact that he's gone.
School Boundary Change
This happened also in the 6th grade. Our school get too big (just a little over 1200 students), so there was a boundary change, and ALL of my best friends had to move to a different school.
This was a big milestone for me, because it represented a new start. I could make new friends, and create a better image for myself. In the 8th grade, I'd known most of the other kids since the 1st grade, and they all had their friend groups, so I thought it would be easier to expand my group of friends.
Getting into Anime
I put this as a milestone, because anime manage to make itself a huge part of my life. from May 2015, I've been obsessed.
School Boundary Change
Meeting my Best Friend
This was going to be in my top 10 no matter what. I met her in the second day of grade 10, and since then, we've been very loud...and obnoxious...but I wouldn't trade her for anything.
Getting into Kpop
This was a huge impact on my life again, I don't know why or how. All I know is that it came fast and furious. (it was also introduced by my friend, so we all have her to thank for that...)
Deciding my career path
This had a huge impact on me because I've been flopping back and forth when it came to career paths. I wasn't sure what I wanted to be, but then, when I was drawing an anime character, I remember that I always loved art, Disney/Pixar, and anime. I thought 'hey, I could go into animation" and BOOM. right there, I decided I wanted to go into animation. It's helped because now I can better prepare for the future.

My Favorite Things
Recently, I have really been getting into k-pop, and by recently, I mean since September. My friend introduced me to a band called BTS, and I've been hooked into the culture ever since. Currently, my favourite band is called iKON (their song Apology is AMAZING). They are under YG Entertainment, which is the second biggest company in South Korea. I'm not too sure why I connected with their music. I think it's because I like hearing the emotion in people's voices and how passionate they are, instead of focusing on the words, and what they're saying. And that really goes for all of the Korean bands and singers I like. I don't really care that I don't understand what they're saying, I prefer hearing how much they want to be where they are, and I get that through their voices.
I've been big into anime since around May 2015. The first one I ever watched is called Attack on Titan. I have no idea why I loved it so much, but it instantly hooked me on anime, and I began watching many different kinds. A lot of people say that cartoons and anime are the same, but in reality, they are very different. Cartoons are always very predictable, there isn't much plot, and none of the character have a back story. They usually have very poor, basic humour, and the characters are often designed to look goofy or funny. Anime on the other hand, there is a lot of back story for the main characters, each arc has a different story line, characters are often designed to look unique, and in some cases, realistic. Anime also usually has a much deeper meaning than how it initially appears. For example, one of my favourite anime's is called Fairy Tail, which seem as it is just about magic. The show is a comedy, but is strongly based on the concept of family, friendship, teamwork, and trust. The show sort of displays how if people deeply depend and trust each other, it can make the bond a lot stronger. So the reason I love anime so much, is the hidden meanings within the story lines.
Art has been a huge part of my life since I was in the fifth grade. It's always come easy to me. The way I first got started with art, was a competition with a friend in my class who thought he was the new PIcasso because he could draw Bugs Bunny, and because of my competitive nature, we decided that I would draw a Sylvester, and if the class voted mine was better, then my art was better than his. Keep in mind we were 9 and 10 and everything we did was a competition. Anyway, I ended up winning and just stuck with it. I thought it was fun and relaxing, plus I was good at it, so now, I've managed to turn it into my career path.
Where can I exercise this Leadership Style?
My Role Model
Kim Hanbin (iKON's B.I)
I idolize him not only because of his position, and how famous he is, but because of how he got there, and how hard he worked. Even when he and his band failed to debut the first time, they stayed in training, and he did everything he could to bring attention to them so they could debut. He was even writing and producing songs for WINNER, the band that beat them in the survival show. He was determined, and fought with everything he had so they could debut, and that is why I respect, love, and idolize him.

Left or Right Brain
Which quiz was the most accurate?
Which one was the most helpful in helping you determine what you want to do and why?
which test was the least helpful and why?
describe your 4 strengths and give examples.
I think one of my strengths is my ability to be logical. I ended up getting Left brain over Right brain, which says something. I think this is a strength because it allows me to be calm and think things over in a logical manner. For example, during a test, if I don't understand the question, or don't know the answer, I can stay calm and find different angles to figure out the answer.
This is definitely one of my strength. It allows me to be creative, and have a unique way of thinking. For example, if I am given a difficult question, I can look at it from angles that I would not have thought of if I were thinking logically. (Spock isn't always right.)
This is a strength because it means I can help other people. For example, if a person doesn't understand a question, I have to think of different ways to present the solution to them so it makes sense.
4 Understanding myself
I think this is a huge strength, because it means I can help myself, and I know what I need to do, or what I need help with. I can understand my emotions better, and if I can do that, I know how to deal with it without making a scene. For example, if I get really upset, I put in my earbuds VERY loud, tune people out, and focus my energy on calming down. Not a lot of people can understand how to deal with themselves when they are stressed out.
describe 4 of your weaknesses and give examples.
This is obviously a huge weakness for a lot of people. Sometimes, if I'm doing a quiz or test, I'll start thinking about something not at all related, and start thinking about it, and expanding the thought, and then how I would explain the thought if I had to verbalize it, and then how the person would react, and their response. This isn't really something I can turn off...It's hard to deal with sometimes.
2 Overly emotional
This is hard because certain people and objects, I get emotionally attached to, and sometimes I take comments too personally. It is very easy to make me mad or upset. One time I had a friend who stole my favourite pen, and hid it from me. I then got upset over the pencil, they told me I need to disconnect from objects, which I heard as "You're too emotional". I then got very mad at that person.
3 Emotionally disconnected
Although this contradicts my previous statement, this is true as well, because sometimes I just don't care about other people. I had a friend who got sick, and my immediate reaction was ' People get sick'. She was my best friend and I didn't even care that she was sick. It's not that I'm self-centred, but sometimes it's really hard to care about minor things like that. If she had the stomach flu, or food poisoning, I would probably feel bad, but this was just a cold.
4 I tune people out
I often don't listen to others. Not on purpose, but my mind tunes itself out sometimes, so I don't hear what's happening. It annoys people because they are trying to ask me for help, I don't have earbuds in but I can't hear them. It aggravates them , and they get mad at me for ignoring them, when in reality, my brain shut off.
What i've learned about my self and what surprised me
Finally, In conclusion, what has surprised me about this assignment, is how passionate I am about certain things. I didn't even notice most of this before now, but here we are. Now you know everything about me, more than I did 2 weeks ago....
