Pendora: Known as Kassondra in the real world I usually go by Pendora online (though I have a vast variety of nicknames, on and off the web). Considered shy by some, I personally dislike being labeled that way and try my best to prove myself the opposite. Many people don't know this, but I can be a very sarcastic, goofy girl. I love having fun and being a bit wild at times (though mostly only my closest friends ever see that side of me). Of fairly average height, I have blue/green/grey eyes, curly blondish-brown hair, and am extremely thankful for the invention of straightening irons. An avid Tolkien fan for the past four or so years, I'm deeply in love with all Hobbits, particularly Meriadoc Brandybuck.
Hobbies: Reading fan fiction. Attempting to write my own fan fiction. Watching and creating music videos. Designing layouts and web pages. Creating icons and graphics. Buying any television series I can get my hands on and watching them over and over. Listening (and sometimes even dancing) to music. Writing. Autumn.
I am a Christian through faith in Christ's shed blood on the cross, and I strive to make my journal, and my life, an example of that.
