Mary

This is me, Mary. I'm a freshman in highschool. My family includes two sisters, Natalya and Anna, both graduated and one moved out, my brother Daniel, who is a senior, my mom, Yelena, who is a nurse, her husband Bill, who works with kids who've had trouble with the law, and his two kids, Makayla and Noah. When that's all totaled together, I have four siblings who live with me, my mom, and step-dad.

Just A Few Little Things

art

I'm big on art. I started drawing when I was about ten. I'm into all mediums and styles, so I'm not only seen with a pencil and paper. Sometimes I like using pen, clay, pastels, or marker. The picture above was my first serious ink work, which took about four hours last summer.

Anime

This is Ryuk, from Death Note. Death Note was the first anime I watched, and it's what caused my absolute love and fanaticism. The only other anime which even holds a chance of replacing Death Note as my favorite is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Saxophone

This is my fourth year playing saxophone. Started in sixth grade, with no intention of ever stopping.

Goals

I have a few simple goals for high school

  • I plan on maintaining my GPA through high school. If that means studying extra for a hard class, then so be it.
  • I need to keep up with my art. I've been slacking a lot recently, and haven't started any new projects, or finished any old ones. Hopefully I can try cranking out one every month.
  • I really need to finish reading Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. It's based off the Harry Potter series, only instead of Petunia marrying Vernon, she marries a college professor, and so Harry is raised as a child genius. The fanfic is over a thousand pages.

If I Could, I'd go to...

France! French culture fascinates me, and I'm currently taking French Language classes. I finished French l, and hope to get French ll and lll next year.
