My name is Tessa (on some parts of the internet better known as Tekira or TekiraDin) and I’m 23 years old. Right now I’m working on my master thesis in clinical psychology, and next school year I’m going to follow some clinical children and youth psychology subjects. I have no idea what I’m going to do when I graduate, so I’m currently panicking on that. I live in a small apartment in the Netherlands, with two cats and a boyfriend, dreaming about a big house with a garden in the woods, a Bouvier, a Bobtail, Scottish Highlanders and maybe an Alpaca. My favourite animals (besides cats) are cows, which I also collect (no, not real ones).
My hobbies are: reading manga, watching anime, watching TV-series, going to movies, reading books, gaming (mainly Nintendo, but I do other stuff too), making pixel art with ironing beads, swimming, walking, cycling, travelling. I also acted for a long period, but I can’t find the time and money for that now. I started piano lessons, but again with the money and time problem. As for travelling, my dream is to backpack through Japan. You have to set goals right?
Friends of me have a website called echtehumor.nl, where they make humorous movies and voice-overs (mostly Dutch, but some in English), and I have guest roles in a few of them (I really recommend GIRL 1 and 2 and Zombies). Go check it out! I’m also a mod on a forum centering around the Italian Disney comic W.I.T.C.H., and I’m planning on scanlating Ekho of Arleston and Barbucci.
My favourite book is Poison of Chris Wooding, and I’m a big fan of Harry Potter too! It’s difficult to pick my favourite anime, but I guess it’s Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Chihayafuru (although Higurashi when they cry, Steins;Gate, Soul Eater, and Shin Sekai Yori are definitely in my top 10 too!). As for games, I’m a Zelda otaku. I still can’t pick between Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, so I guess it’s a shared first place. As for other games, I’m a big fan of Pokémon, Super Smash Bros, Prince of Persia, and of course I play other games on other consoles too. As for TV-series, I’m a fan of Avatar: the Legend of Aang, Avatar: the Legend of Korra, Lost, Scrubs, House, the Big Bang Theory, Glee, 90210, Awkward, Being Erica, Fringe, and Doctor Who.
