Hello everyone!

I have no idea how many people out there are still even watching me, but I just figured I would say hello!

I've been gone for a good long time, life just coming and going as per the usual.  A lot has changed with me since I was last on here, I'm much further in my schooling, I have a whole new set of friends on and offline, my interests have shifted, I have gone through 3 new jobs, I'm about to enter graduate school next Fall and I met a wonderful woman who I am now dating! :)

The world just keeps on moving, and I've been doing my best to move with it.   I shifted away from doing art/poetry for a while, but I'm yearning to get back into it now.  I haven't done too much yet, but I do have some minor works of poetry I'm getting ready... I'm testing the waters again, seeing where they bring me.

I don't know if I'll have time to try getting into drawing again, but it might happen, who knows? *shrug*

Regardless, I'm back and I'm happy to be back!  I'm ready to make art again and have fun, so I hope if there are still some out there with their eyes on this account that the wait was worth it! :p

Life is a wonder, treat it so.
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am a strange, fun loving person who loves to read, write, tell stories, crack jokes, go out into nature and live my life with a passion!

I go by Ruethel or Rhiulchaban for the most part online, but you can feel free to call me Rhi. I live and attend university in St. Cloud Minnesota. I am a wannabee/amateur poet on the side (and hope to write a novel someday), but psychology is my major passion in life. I am in my senior year of university now in the Community Psychology major and hope to soon move onto graduate school to become a Behavior Analyst and eventually work with educating and using behavior therapy with nature education (at least that's my direction right now).

I really love fantasy and science fiction, and in my spare time I do a lot of tabletop roleplaying and reading of books from these genres. I really love Roleplaying Games of all sorts and am fairly infatuated with The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series among many countless others. I'm also a big history buff and my favorite video games are often historical in nature! I'm an amateur rockhound and coin collector, although I don't get out and collect as often as I used to anymore. Cartoons are also a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, and I enjoy watching new and old cartoons alike on a regular basis. I also love to research and discuss the occult in all its forms! If you are interested in any of these topics, feel free to strike up a conversation with me!

I really care a lot about the environment and animals, so I am trying to get more involved in helping out in those areas as well!

On the topic of Furry, I've been a Furry probably since I was about 12, but didn't really know about the community until I was 16. At that time I tentatively joined, but didn't get very involved. I have had an on and off relationship with the fandom since then, but now that I'm expanding my horizons I am also returning to my roots! I have come back full force into the Furry Community and would like to get much more involved! 

I am a fan of all animals, but my favorites definitely have to be the avians! I find birds highly fascinating and I like to enjoy birding (bird-watching) when I get the chance! Birds of prey are probably some of my favorites, hawks, falcons, owls... although I don't discriminate against the non-predatory birds one bit!

I chose a Chocobo as my main fursona (feathersona) because (even though I haven't played most of the Final Fantasy Games) I've always really enjoyed Chocobos and thought they were cool! Their design, color scheme and demeanor are all wonderful and I can very much relate to their cowardly yet determined personalities!

I am a pretty open person and enjoy chatting with folks of all types, I enjoy making new friends and if anyone would like I'm free to receive PMs! I am a little slow to open up at first, so if I'm not super forthcoming right away I will inevitably become much more talkative and open the more I get to know you, you just have to give me time!  If I ever happen to meet you offline or we we meet through video chat I will probably seem even more anxious/standoffish, but this by no means is a sign I'm giving you the cold shoulder! I'm a naturally anxious person until I acclimate to new environments/people, it's just in my nature, so it will just take me a little longer in person to open up than face to face.

Thanks for reading, hope you found my long winded self-description at least mildly interesting and informative!
