In my opinion, Autobiographies don’t truly show what a person is like or who they are. It is my understanding that biographies only show the facts not the personality of a person. So, as is probably evident- this is not my favorite pastime, anyhow, here is a little bit about myself. My given name is Maximiliana, I was named after my Grandfather. I have a messy ethnic background most simply described as a ‘New Yorker’.
One of the most prominent parts of myself would have to be that I am an artist. I work mainly in Pen, pencil, however I have done many pieces in all types of mediums ranging from Ceramics, to Carving. One could argue I inherited my love of art from my mother and Grandmothers who are painters. This is only partially true as Abstraction is not my goto approach, I mainly focus on more realistic figure drawings or paintings when I can. I also have a soft spot for fluffy creatures as I have always lived with dogs, sometimes multiple at a time. Currently, I have one dog by the name of Pickle. Additionally, I am not an athletic person, I fail at most sports due to my apathy of such activities, and because of my poor eyesight. The only sport I can do well would be swimming which I enjoy immensely.
Well, I think that should be enough about my hobbies. I do enjoy reading and writing on my own time, and I am an avid fan of the Sci-fi genre. I am open to practically any genre of film or book, as long as the writing is palatable. I am hoping to finish the Earthsea Cycle (by Ursula K. Le Guin) sooner than later, and I also hope to finally get around to reading Dune again. I am not a particularly fast reading, despite my affinity for complex novels. I do not tear through books like other people, I prefer to savor the story and writing as such hard work should not be overlooked with a glance. The way that I write is not what I see conventionally in more modern writing. I have a deep love for a long descriptive passage about one person, or one place.
Anyways, I think that is all I’m at liberty to share at this point in time. Hopefully this was enough material to get a grasp of what I am like as a person.
