Rules = none!

Might write musings. EDIT: Will write musings, probably a lot. I'm prone to wanting to change things a lot, so yeah. Plus, it's nice to write OOC sometimes.

So, I decided that I should probably give a little introduction.

So! Hello! :) I'm a 20 yr old student in Britain studying music at university. I'm in my final year this year, so it will probably start getting quite hectic later on, when term starts.
This is my first roleplay site that I've joined, so I don't have much experience, but I'm enjoying it immensely.
Umm... I enjoy lots of different things- writing (obviously face-palms), playing violin (I've been playing for about 11/12 years of my life), playing games, walking in nature, cycling etc etc. I like to explore :)
Other things- I'm open to lots of different kinds of plots- my character's future is pretty flexible, in a way. Feel free to PM me anything you want.

Also, please feel free to comment!

So, I thought I would show you all a picture of my violin. Cause I'm so proud of her! Yes, she is a she, and although I haven't decided on a name yet, I'm thinking of calling her Mallory.

This year, I am taking performance as my minor in my degree, and although this is a REALLY daunting idea, I hope it goes well. I'm not very good at public performance, but last year I did a lot better than in the past, so I'm hopeful.

I suppose you could call it performance anxiety, but I think I'm beating it, so yay! :)

These posts with the pictures used to carry some NPCs which I was developing, before I realised that I didn't want to hold them here. In case there was any confusion.

Anyways: this picture: I pulled it from the New York Pumpkin Festival thingy. And it looks frikkin' amazing! I really have a thing for Halloween. It's one of my favourite times of year. I love October, and Autumn in particular. The colours, the smells, the food, the clothes, the frost, the nature, the pumpkins! Oh, Autumn. You are amazing.

Anyway, I really want to go to this festival one day, but I really can't afford plane tickets over for such a small trip. Maybe some other time.

Stuff I did over the summer:

Image


I had a really nice summer holiday this year. I did a lot of things with my family. We went to France, me and my boyfriend went camping, which was lovely. With my family again, we went on holiday to Wales, and me and my brother created these stone thingys, which quite amusingly, some Canadian woman came up to us and congratulated us on it, so yeah.

One of the sources for Karin comes from my love of the sea and the beach and stuff. shrugs

Okay, so I thought I'd write a little bit OOC'ly.
First things first, I am super, super glad that I found this site. I've been having so much fun writing, learning new things, meeting new people. Everyone here that I've seen so far has been super friendly, and I've had people wanting to write threads with me, which I wasn't expecting at all.
I've been logging on (probably far too often to be honest), and whenever I've seen a reply to something, I've maybe meeped a little in excitement. Recently, I got some of my threads graded for the first time, and that was a lovely experience. Basically my thought process went: Aaaaah! People are reading my stuffs!
*facepalm* I get a little too excited sometimes.
Anyway, I'm really glad where everything's going with this. And I'm really looking forward to adding Karin's story to the fabric of Miz.

The next thing I want to say is basically some self-probing, philosophising, or what-have-you. And it's this: I think my thing with Mizahar is that I've always been quite... shy, I suppose. I'm pretty introverted. But I love it when I do something right, and it gets recognised, I think that most people like to have what they do recognised. So, as I write here on Miz, and talk to people on chat, and just basically have a nice time, to see flippin' grades, and comments, and replies- it gives me such a warm feeling. It's really nice to be recognised. I'm introverted, but not so much that I don't want the approval of others.

So, yeah. To summarise: I think I'm really going to enjoy this Miz experience. And apologies for the rambling O.o

Musical instruments
I am planning to write descriptions for all the instruments, starting with the bagpipes, to eventually make it to the lore pages.

A picture of a female dhani for the future, maybe? Or for someone who wants a female dhani picture!

Okay, so I thought I'd give a little update!

It's been pretty busy all of a sudden with me, irl me, that is. As I'm in my last year of university, work is suddenly a lot more important and also harder, so I'm having to do a lot more of it. I also decided that I would at least try and be more sociable this year, so last night we had a Halloween party at our house! I took about 5 hours to make a kick-ass mask,
Image Image

I mean, there were only 2 guests at any given time, but it was fun, and we talking about fun geeky stuff, so it's all good.

So, there's that. In terms of Mizahar, I think because I am just proud of myself for sticking with it, and for developing my characters instead of making and running, I feel like I can relax just that little bit more.

Not to say that I'm going to stop, I'm most definitely carrying on, but whilst I've been busy, and whilst I've been socialising and spending time actually being a student, I figured spending all my time at my laptop, hidden away in my room is not exactly healthy.

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween this year!
