Hello. I'm Lauren, known as GothicShoujo, Yozakura, or Ren. ^^ I'm an anime/manga fan, I love to read books and manga, write stories, draw, hang out online, play video games, and enjoy my favorite fandoms.
My current fandom is Smosh (and some other youtubers in general), while I'm also enjoying some anime like Kuragehime, Natsume Yuujinchou, and Madoka Magica.
I love the internets. I spend a good part of my life on here. xD; I love to read fanfics of my favorite fandoms, look at fanart, and all that, along with watching videos from the Nostalgia Critic, Smosh, AVGN, Nigahiga and others.
I'm not an avid reader, but I do like to read a bit whenever I feel like it. Harry Potter is a definite fave, along with the Echo Falls Mysteries by Peter Abraham, and the Inkheart books by Cornelia Funke.
Outside the web, I'm a graduate student of Graphic Design & Animation, currently studying at a local county college under a major of Liberal Arts, and hoping to someday become a successful animator/illustrator/cartoonist. :)
