Hey, what else can you do besides comics? Talents? Hobbies? Jobs? Accomplishments? Etc.

I'll go first…

I play the cello.
I have strange ability of noticing things, even if they're not important.
I can color coordinate!!! :D
I can play a couple songs on the piano.
I can play… or I can try to play electric guitar.
I can (supposedly) sing!
I'm asian.

YES.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

I imitate various accents, from Stereotypic Asian to British to Dr. Evil.
And video games and being antagonized for all the wrong reasons.

Hrm, let's see…

I like to sew cosplay outfits, for no reason.
I can speak Spanish.
I can remember any stand up comedy routine I've heard once before almost verbatim.
I am crazy flexible without stretching or practice (I can do some crazy contortionist things!)
When using a camera I usually get the perfect shot without blur.

I'm an rpg and morpg freak… so I end up being very good at those kinds of things… for example, I can easily level up to level 20 after having only started on a new morpg with a brand character in no time, and even find some really nice items to go with my character. and all that in one day.
of course sometimes I die a lot in the process… but hey. and of course I have to be super focused on something like that.
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

Hrmmm… lemme think

If I had a superpower it would be Sarcasm.
Me and my friends role play at least once a week
I've been writing and re-writing the same fantasy story for about 10 years
My best friend and I have been friends for 10 years
I've taken ethnic dance classes and jazz dance classes
I've seen Les Miserables, live, over 100 times
I took voice lessons
I was in the Chamber Ensemble for 4 years at my high school (and, from that, came my hatred and love for Madrigals)
I am not left-handed
I loves me a British Accent
I spend a lot of time practicing different accents
I caption for deaf and hard of hearing students at the local college
I once played a schizophrenic with an imaginary friend for a dinner theater show and people thought I was actually mentally ill
I randomly translate things into French in my head
I self taught myself the piano and can play the Coi Song from FFVI sans sheet music
I am good at cooking and baking… s'long as I have a recipie to follow
I can give detailed explainations of all the Final Fantasies up to 10, not including Mystic Quest - for I have played them all many times.
Though I can't help my mom get past her probelms when trying to understand all of the Star Wars put together. I spent 2 hours on it once. I'm willing to say there's no hope for her.

oh this is interesting. if we consolidated all these threads about ourselves (ie picture/age/comic info thread), we'd have fairly in-depth user bios…

so…

I go to UC berkeley and I hate most of the people there
I work at a bank and I hate customers
I hate most people in general, thus I have no life

er. wait. none of those were skills.

um, I can sorta knit.

Work at a video store
Write books
Tutor creative writing
Hang out with girlfriend

Despite being right-handed, I air-guitar with my left.

I hate most foods.

Despite always sounding sarcastic, I'm not really. I just find putting effort in speaking too troublesome.

Used to run a website on freewebs which became so popular, it got banned in my school.

Even though I am 14 (15 in three days time!), I do college level computing.

Plays on Maple Story and Gunz online.

Can crack at least 50 parts of the body's bones.

Fond of Pokémon.

Asain.

Can only play ‘Old MacDonald’ on the piano.

Has a dab hand in improv.

Is 5 ft 6 (and a half).

Used to have the alias Shadow_Striker.

Shouts at the television when a programme breaks the fourth wall.

Goes to a badminton club every Saturday.

Makes fun of emos.

Can “do the Matrix”, therefore I am a limbo champion.

Is demanding everyone to give him a birthday present on the 7th Sept.

Woot! Lists of personal traits :!:

*I love to wear hats, mostly berets because they're soft and squishy and don't mess up my hair.
*I can fix almost anything (including my cats)… I can make pretty much anything too.
*I'm just as pompus/obnoxious/opinionated offline as online.
*Don't watch any TV at all anymore.
*I can produce almsot any sort of artwork… paintings, drawings, sculpture, 3D digital, animation, video whatever.
*I can sew.
*I like cooking and making my own recipes.
*I can't grow my hair longer than just past my shoulders… It just stays the same length and then curls.
edit-Ooo, I can ride horses too.

Blah blah blah, more stuff that makes me sound strange…
But it's true.

Finally, a thread for blatant egotists such as I!

~I am, to use the official sociologists' terminology, a “honky”.
~I was born with a complete set of fingers and toes, contrary to popular belief.
~I'm taller than most adults, yet I seem to be shorter than many of my fellow high school students.
~I play the guitar (which I am not that good at) and occasionally the ukelele (which I am flat out horrible at). I used to know how to play the alto saxophone, but my sixth-grade band teacher scared the talent out of me.
~I sometimes claim that I'm a writer, yet I have not actually written anything (besides comics, the occasional blog, and these stupid forum posts) in over eight months now.
~I like watching movies, but I loathe watching TV.
~I can shoot red lights with my index finger to make them turn green.
~Sometimes I get memories of things before they happen. Unfortunately, they're not usually very important things– usually the alignment of a couple of billiards on a pool table, or the pattern of cracks on an eggshell.
~I sleep in the nude.
~I can wiggle both of my ears. I can also wiggle them one at a time.
~At some point I'd like to try my hand at film, but until then I'm hampered by my family's Stone-Age-era camcorder.
~I can fold an origami crane in under a minute.
~I think that studying math is an essential and enriching part of all students' curriculums… except for mine, for I am a total lost case to the world of logic.
~Despite all evidence to the contrary, I hold a firm belief that things will probably work out in the end.

~IJ

Oo! Something fun to do. XD

-I try to avoid doing schoolwork
-I can beat any Harvest Moon game before the first winter on my second try (Or first sometimes).
-I can dance. (Like, ballroom dancing, as scary as that may sound)
-I sit and daydream about where characters are going.
-I play around online.
-I obsess over something. Usually it has to do with the state of my room.
-I am a writer by profession, so I likes to write.
-I can't play guitar. Or even air guitar. I've tried. Little children cried.
-I can do a backbend starting out standing up though. But I can't do a cartwheel.
-I go days without eating sometimes.
-I can make spaghetti noodles. ^_____^
-I wouldn't do anything for a klondike bar.
-I likes to burst into sponenteous song. Usually the song is about hills and how they are currently among the living.

Aaaaand that is all there is to know about May. Who sometimes refers to herself in third person. XD
