If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? I would change the unfair explotation of animals and forests. In my opinion, people can live without the little knick knacks such as tiny wooden tables serving no purpose but holding your newspaper. And what is unfair in my opinion is that you can get sentenced to life in prison for killing a prostitute (who had it coming with the life s/he chose to live), but if someone slaughters a few dozen animals, they can only serve two weeks in jail, and pay a small fine. What makes a human life more important than that of an animal? -That's what I think, anyway.
What makes a person respectable? The sort of people I hold in high regard are the intellectuals and philsophers, who dare to think "outside the box". Even though I don't agree with some of their beliefs about the universe, and such, it's still very commendable. Also, animal activists.
What do you look for in a friend? While I'm a generally witdrawn person, if I do see someone who holds potential, say similar interests, I'll approach them. What I'm looking for is at least a little mutual understanding, loyalty and trust.
What are your hobbies? My hobbies include reading (mainly mangas or Japanese comics, at the moment, mind you), and going to the beach looking for interesting specimens that might have washed up on shore. And my main interests are deep sea creatures (especially squid), travel, forensic science/murder cases, and manga/anime. I hope to take zoology in university with a Japanese language course on the side, and perhaps join PETA, or something. Also, I hope to learn my mother's language, Tagalog when I go to live in Manila for a year.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? At the time, I have no money to support a charity, but I plan on donating for World Wildlife Fund at some point, and perhaps give what money left I have to the organization when I die. As for other charities, I don't really symphatize as much. That might sound cruel to support animals, and be unsymphathetic towards humanity, but it's my own mixed feelings. That doesn't mean I think the whole AIDS crisis in Africa isn't bad, but I believe the disease will help maintain population. They should have been more careful! Even, let's say they do not know of the spreading of AIDS. Why have kids, if you live in poverty? I know it's not the child's fault, but they'll probably just continue the chain, if they survive. And for suffering animals, is most likely our own doing, and it is not their fault at all. Animals were here first, and they always suffer injustice.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? To travel the world is my life goal. I want to see it all, try different things, learn different cultures and languages. When I go to the Philippines, I plan on learning my mother's language, and devouring as much tropical fruit as I can!
Who is your role model? I don't have any. Although I might admire someone for one of their traits, or things they've done, there's always a lot more to them that I don't think so highly of...in short, I do my own thing.
What trait most annoys you about other people? What annoys me most about society and people is the fact that they must fit in, and like whatever someone else is liking. No one but a few seem to have their own mind, and schoolars who boast of their knowledge don't know squat outside of what they've learned, even the most common sense thing. I hate the ignorance, and the judging of people for appearance, sexuality, race etc. And group mentality. I hate those people who bully others in front of their peers just to make themselves look good, and they always have backup in case something goes wrong.
What do you want to do for a living? The best job in my opinion include manga reviewer (read the comics I love, write about it, and get paid.) and food sampler. In some cases, you get to travel the world, dine in the finest restaurants and write features about it. Can't get any better than that, unless you're wealthy bartender in Puerto Vallarta drinking pina coladas all day. But more realistically, I wish to take marine biology/zoology in college/university, and study deep sea creatures. The best kind of job is an "alone" and quiet working place.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Knowing my own capabilities, I'd do what I could logically. However, if it is someone I care about deeply beyond all else, I might do whatever it takes to save him/her even if it looks hopeless. ( I don't have someone like that in my life yet.)
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? Yes, I'm a person who has trouble letting things go, and holds a lot of anger towards certain few. There are someone people not worth forgiving, and I'd like to get justice, and seek revenge against them.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? I'm great at improvising late assignments, and thinking up ways to accomplish a hopeless tasks, I work well alone (I don't follow anyone, and I can think for myself), I always leave a nasty impression, just because of my silent mannerisms and appearance (not always good, but it's funny sometimes.), I'm open-minded towards different cultures and when I feel robbed of something (such as a bad grade), I'll fight for it.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? I always having to state my opinion, or correct really dumb teachers, being wrathful towards those I hate(and they won't leave my mind for years sometimes), I'm too emotional and take things too literally, I'm always so skeptical of other's intentions, and I'm stubborn.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Courage is to be brave enough to stand by your beliefs and stand up for yourself no matter how the situation looks.
Loyalty: To be faithful to those you've vowed loyalty to is to stick by someone's side even when you know it'll affect you negatively. Whether it is to defend a friend's honour, or to fight for an outnumbered friend, that's loyalty, I think.
Intelligence: Intelligence for me is not always basic knowledge, but to have the open-mindedness to learn something without pestilence. It is also to remain faithful to the things you believe in, and not change your statements, just because the majority believes something else. It's to have common sense, and be your own person.
Ambition: Ambition is the neccesary drive needed to persue your dreams, and things you believe in.

Name: Please refer to me as Lranuh. I hope that's okay.
Age: 16.
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? I'm unsure, not I tend to be cynical and rarely hold a positive attitude for long. I also lack self-confidence, and lack the bravery of Gryffindor. I tend to think things before doing them, and I'm highly speptical and a bit indecisive.
Where did you find out about us? I found this community at random, actually...
