I got bored of the previous long-ass intro, so here's a new one, simple and to the point...mostly.

Hello, I'm Olivia and currently residing in Romania; around the internet, I mostly go by Oli and Pande (from another username), but you can call me however you want. I choose to rant for hours about things like movies, manga or Photoshop and like to make internet jokes, because I'm hip. I also have a tendency to go on unannounced hiatus at random times; however, I'm still around since "hiatus" means "lurking" to me - I couldn't possibly leave TheO for good :P I still reply to PMs, read posts and view artwork, I just don't comment the day they're posted (sometimes it may take up to a month for me to catch up!) Don't take it personally; I have nothing against you, it's just a bad habit of mine that I can't get rid of ^^"

Doing ATM: crying tears of blood in anticipation of her dissertation, playing Sims 3 and various shooters

Likes: cats, yaoi (+ plot, ideally), drawing geometry-based designs, manga, Reddit, organizing everything (and yet having a perpetually messy desk), being alone in her cave home, the pizza her best friend makes
Dislikes: not doing something, whiners, starting projects and dropping them *does it all the time*, morons, communicating for the sake of appearances
Movies: The Prestige, The Wall, Hot Fuzz, The Descent - I'm a movie buff, so I like a lot
Music: anything that sounds good (yea, that narrows it down, lmao)
TV: Game of Thrones (finished season 3), Pretty Little Liars (WTF am I watching), Modern Family (awesome)
Reviewers: The Cinema Snob, Linkara, Todd, Rap Critic

On a wallpaper downloading binge

Just spent about an hour downloading and organizing wallpapers. I'm a sucker for good scenic and abstract ones, especially if the abstract ones are simpler and with pastel colors <3

If you guys are looking for anything like that, here's what I found:
9dzign (abstract & scenic)
bo0xvn (scenic)
zim2687 (scenic)
r/MinimalWallpaper (abstract, minimalistic)

And wallpaper dumps with about any type of wallpaper:
r/Wallpaper
r/Wallpapers

I regret nothing.

And here's a song I can't stop listening to these days:

My quiz got accepted! :o

*throws confetti into the air* Yes, the quiz that I'd thought to be lost to the world has been accepted! It's all in jest, of course, but I really enjoyed writing the result texts and making the images ヽ(^。^)丿

On a Harry Potter binge

About three weeks ago I had a sudden craving to re-read the Harry Potter books, after not having picked them up for almost 10 years.

GUESS WHAT. THEY'RE STILL AWESOME.

I'm almost done with book 6 and it hasn't even been three full weeks since I restarted the series. Not exaggerating, these wonderful books have brought back the passion of reading for me, after years of being worn down by forcing myself to read textbooks and a short period of attempting cheap romance novels (lolno).

And I discovered one of my close friends is a Harry Potter fan too - though she's only seen the movies - so I finally have someone to fawn over them with (first time after grade school, haha).

I guess I'll be watching the movies too after I'm done with the books. For some reason, I never went past the fifth one so 6-8 will be a first-time watch for me (though I hardly remember the rest so might as well count those in as well XD).

Any HP crazies around here?

My history with the Doom games

Oh hey there's a Doom category. A long time ago, one of the Doom games (didn't know which then, now I do: Doom 2) made me cry tears of blood because I was too dumb to configure the keys and jump, and I needed to jump to progress in a certai...
