I guess I'll play along. The basics about me: In real life, I'm a Graphic Designer. I'm currently on leave because of a prolapsed disc and I'm seriously bored out of my tree. That's why I currently spend a little more time around forums and I've taken the bait with this lol. It's pretty bad actually. Despite being an urgent case, I've kinda been sent here there and everywhere trying different non-surgical things that haven't worked. They've finally referred me to a neurosurgeon, so hopefully I'll soon get my life back. ^^ When I'm not living the bum life, I work at a B2B design studio where most of the work I do is branding, logos and printed materials. I also have some formal training in Software Development since last year. Well 5 years total in uni as a designer to Master's level. One year Software Dev, so definitely no expert there, but learning. XD. I go by Shannon Apple on most forums I am part of. (I'm not that lady on YouTube with the squirrels. People ask me about that. She stole my name haha!). The username was a play on an anime character called Sharon Apple from Macross Plus. She's an AI who sings, a little bit dangerous and badass. Actually, at the time I picked that name, back in 2006, I wasn't exactly an anime fan. I was curious about the medium and had joined a forum called anime-forums.com. That forum wasn't just about anime, and that's what attracted me to it. I could find out about new non-weird shows to watch, while posting about other things. Even though I soon became a moderator, and later an admin of that site, I am still someone who watches very casually. One maybe two shows a year so long as they are "normal." Some of the other admins/mods watch enough to make up for me. XD After a couple tools bought our beloved forum (paid serious money for it) and wrecked it (very long story) the remaining volunteer staff created Sakuga City as a home for our displaced members. Or... well, those who were left.
