Hi everyone! I'm new to Fanpop and super excited about joining this community. It remains to be seen how often I'll frequent this site, but considering my obsession with the Disney Princesses it may end up being quite often. I spent quite some time snooping around in the background without an account, and I've finally decided it's time to come out of the shadows and be able to participate in the cool stuff you do on here. Anyhoo, here's a little bio so you guys can get to know me:
I was always that little girl who wanted to grow up to be a princess. I've been obsessed with the Disney Princesses my entire life, and when I was young Ariel was my #1 favorite! The Little Mermaid
was practically the only movie I would watch, and I had the entire thing memorized. I would amble around singing the songs from it (especially Part of Your World
), so my mother decided to put me in a choir.
I HATED it.
My parents finally let me quit, on the condition that I must continue doing something with music. I decided to try violin and I also began to take figure skating lessons once a week. Don't get excited, I can't do any fancy tricks or anything. It was just recreational and I've never been in any competitions. After 4 years of violin I had grown to despise it, and I quit after 6th grade. (Beginning to see a trend here?)
My best friend was part of a choir, so I decided to give singing a second chance. I must have just needed some time to mature after quitting my very first choir, because I ended up loving this one! Unfortunately I was forced to quit after a year due to monetary and transportation issues. Afterwards, I began playing the Celtic harp, and have been doing that ever since. My harp teacher also teaches voice, so a few years ago I returned to singing, which has always been my greatest musical love. I'm also a member of my school's choir.
My entire life I've been a voracious reader - at least until high school rolled around and the sudden homework deluge forced me to stop. I still try to read as much as possible, but it gets increasingly difficult with each passing year. I especially love retellings of classic fairytales, and this is probably the reason why I love the Disney Princesses so much.
After my sophomore year my figure skating slowly drew to a close because I got a job!! :D I work as an intern at my local zoo, and it's a blast. I have a deep-seated love for animals of all kinds, but horses are my favorite by far. They are another life long obsession of mine, and I hope someday I'll be able to have one of my own.
I'll be heading off to college next year, and I'm thinking about doing a double major in creative writing and environmental science. At this point in my life I would love to be an author, but a more realistic career choice for me would probably be something that had to do with the science surrounding climate change and/or the environment. This may change though, and I'm excited to see what the future brings. :)
Sooo I just told you my life story... Sorry if I bored you at all! I'm looking forward to geeking out about the Disney Princesses with everyone!
