I've come to realize nearly all the other groups have an Introduction thread, so I guess I'll start one too.
Here are some things you can consider:
Favorite *Music, Movies, TV Shows, Video games, color

Brief Description: I grew up in the city of Raleigh, North Carolina; until my parents divorced in November 2006. After their divorce I moved with my dad to Oregon leaving behind my three sisters and my mother in NC. My dad met his girlfriend, early 2008 and we do not get along in the least. One of my elder sisters Casey, moved up here with my dad and I for her Senior year. I was diagnosed with a blood disorder known as Kostmann's Disease/Chronic Neutropenia in late 2005. I have two amazing friends whom I love dearly; Currently I am living with my father, his girlfriend, my sister and my two dogs Wormrat and Tilly. That ends my life story

Nicknames Soph, Sophster, Neko
Location Canberra, Australia (unfortunately...)
Colour I don't really have one, but I might say purple, green, yellow, orange or red
Music I listen to nearly anything, but at the moment I love A Fine Frenzy and Damien Rice
TV Shows Supernatural
Animals Anything with less than 6 legs :P
Rain, Cold weather and windy days, reading, writing, photography and TS2
Hot weather, dry weather, spiders, insects
I was born in Canberra but when I was about two I moved to New Zealand for a year. After that I moved to Seoul, South Korea for three years, then back to Australia for about 2 1/2 years. I left Australia and lived in Japan for two years and then I've been living in Canberra ever since. About four months after returning from Japan I was diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and put on medication. Now I'm going into my final year of high school and I've just been taken off my medication today. I have many friends who I love and at the moment I am living in Canberra in an overly large house with my older brother and my parents as well as my kitty-cat, Annie.
When I get to college I plan on doing the IB so I can hopefully get into university overseas (hopefully in America) and I plan to live somewhere other than Australia when I'm old enough to leave home :D

Dislike: Ignorance is the number-one unforgivable trait, by my estimation. A person can't help being stupid, but there's no excuse for ignorance.
Brief Description: I never have an interesting biography because I lead a relatively charmed life. My parents are happily married and I've only moved once in my life to a new house a few blocks away. I was born and raised in Indiana, and I'm the youngest of three children. Although my sister has grown up and struck out on her own, I still live with my parents, my college-bound brother (I'm scared for when he leaves... just me and my parents !), and my loveable beagle-lab, Toby. I have a very busy academic career, but in my free time, I love to read, write, and spend time with my good friends. My extracurriculars include newspaper and Key Club. When I graduate, I look forward to working toward a doctorate in social/behavioral psychology.

Well here goes: I live with my partner and four children in the Uk along with our 7 assorted dogs and a pet hedgehog. I am 95% bedridden as I have Tarlov Cysts Disease (basically cysts on the nerve roots of my spine) which cause excrutiating pain 24/7 and means that I am unable to sit upright or stand for more than a couple of hours a day as they fill with the fluid that runs down your spinal chord from your brain making the pain worse and my belly swell up until I look like I am in advanced pregnancy I have to use a wheelchair to get anywhere - which is where the Wheelie nickname comes from. I am originally from Peterborough in the Uk and moved to Grimsby in May '06 the people are definately friendlier and we are a five minute car journey from the beach which the dogs love.

My dog is insane and getting old. My Grandma's a laugh. My mum does nothing but knit jumpers, crochet blankets and watch Time Team, my dad moved out a few years back and I haven't seen him for absolutely months and I'm glad, I've been a computer junky since before I was in school, my dad broke the box to my Soulblade game when he lay down on it when I was little, our garden used to be an overgrown jungle, but now it's tidy, I have a very nice knitted hat that my Grandma made for me, I support Arsenal FC, and I'm going to London on Wednesday for the first time. I'm in year 9, I'm 5'8", I'm an only child. I'll be in year 10 when I go back to school though. DAMN, the start of my GCSEs! D:
