wo words have described me throughout my life, wasted potential. My abilities far outreach my ambition; most of all I am a gifted yet lazy writer. Not that any of this should surprise anyone considering the rate at which my entries are completed. In addition to lacking drive, my memory is short and always has been. I remember the oddest things with crystal clarity yet fail to remember that which I truly need to. I am a loner that balks at most social situations, at least until I achieve some level of comfort.

But I do have my good points. I am comfortable on my own, and I understand myself better than most. Who else would be brave enough to delve into my psyche? Empathy I have in spades, perhaps a bit too much when it comes to being around those I care about. I can be compassionate and warm, but I also have my moments where I am nothing but cold and unforgiving. One thing I am above all else is a romantic, and it is into romance that my writing skills often pour, in the form of poetry.

Perhaps you're looking for something else, an actual account of my life rather than one of who I am, though words fail miserably at both. I am country born and bred, raised on a farm as a love of animals developed from tending the livestock. Three siblings I have, one older brother and two sisters, one older and the other younger. I am closest with my little sister, maybe because she is the one most like me. Or maybe I just cannot tolerate the other two. My parents say I raised myself, and they're probably right. I still do not like being around most of my family. Insanity runs in the family it seems.

School bored me, and honestly, most of my knowledge comes from books. My grades were mediocre as my test scores soared, the wasted potential thing again. And then I learned a new trick in high school, how to avoid showing up entirely. I would miss a week at a time simply because I hated school. But still I passed, if only barely. And I did graduate, despite being bored by the pomp of the graduation itself. College finally happened for me after a year away from school entirely, and I began as a Biology major, intending that I would be a vet. It was in a moment of epiphany that I changed my mind and became an English major. I just had an overwhelming desire to take all the English classes I could, a desire that could not go unanswered as English has always been my favorite subject.

Hobbies Reading the books of the afore mentioned authors, often several times. Writing for Santharia as I attempt to improve my writing skills so that I may one day be a published author (I'm an aspiring writer, or so I like to think.) Playing the above mentioned games and a few others, despite the fact that I've beaten most of them.
Santharian Focus
I often wander through the Sarvonian continent, writing whenever and wherever a moment of inspiration takes root. In particular, I have been known as the foremost (only) expert on trolls.

The Best Bestiary Entry Award 2007
Winning entry: "Iceland Shortsnout"
Well, Vesk... It seems you have actually done it! Achieved perfection in the creation of an abomination... or just a butterfly perhaps? No, actually it's the "Iceland Shortsnout" entry about a majestic and fearsome beast up north that stood out in the past year. And the brilliant execution of that entry shows us that you have earned the right to bear the Bestiary award and as such can now enter the hallowed/littered halls of the beastmasters, Vesk! - Well done!
