I suppose we should start with names. I prefer to go by Wolffe, Wolf, or occasionally Wolfieh, but I'm generally pretty laid-back in regards to what I'm actually called, so long as it's not insulting. Similarly, I am female in species and use she/her pronouns, but I'm not going to be upset if you think I'm a guy or refer to me as such. Certainly not the first time it's happened, and it's an easy mistake to correct.
I'm relatively new to the Rooster Teeth forums, but I have worked my way around a number of other online message boards and have been a fan of RT and its branches for years. I spend most of my time browsing Achievement Hunter and Let's Play content but am always open and looking for more areas to peruse and discuss. I'm currently waiting for opportune times to throw myself into forum life and start becoming one with the community, but I am nevertheless excited to join its ranks.
I'm currently a high school graduate waiting to attend college this Fall (A little over five weeks from now, to be exact) for an English/Writing degree. I took an interesting and round-a-bout road to get to this point, including some time spent wanting to be a psychologist, a journalist, and an engineer. Needless to say, I've been around the block on "What I want to be when I grow up" and only really picked a course when I realized I'd run out the timer, then spent a year and a half with that before switching it up again.
I've decided on becoming an English major not necessarily because I love the language, but because I love knowing how to use it and twist it to suit my needs and evoke certain feelings or responses from my audience. I like to create pieces of writing that will tug on the heartstrings and activate the emotional centers of the brain, and I've spent almost a decade honing my craft both by consuming and producing writing online, most commonly through roleplaying forums. In the end, I and many who know me were amazed that it took me so long to come to this point, creating my future with the one thing I've enjoyed doing since childhood.
Now, the horribly stiff-sounding paragraphs above probably wouldn't make it obvious (or even believable), but I'd like to think of myself as quite the fun individual! I enjoy conversing with others both in serious and humorous manners, and really just want to have a good time. Now, for the lightning round of interests!:
- I'm a nerd who plays Dungeons and Dragons with a friend group I hijacked from my brother
- I own, know how to shoot (poorly), and have injured myself multiple times on an authentic medieval English longbow
- I would much rather make myself in the Sims and go to work until virtual me dies than do it in real life, but somehow got stuck doing both
- I'm in a love-love relationship with the original Spyro Trilogy, despite it being older than I am, and
will happily be pre-ordering the Reignited Trilogy left in the middle of typing this to pre-order it because I realized I hadn't yet
- I subscribe to the theory that redheads don't have souls, as I should know because I am one
- I once called myself a "Chaos God of Puns and Bad Life Decisions" and have been referred to by that title numerous times, all of which were by me
TL;DR: Call me Wolffe; I'm an English Major; I love: writing, D&D, medieval weaponry, wasting my potential, Spyro, eating souls, and giving myself cool titles that no one else pays attention to; oh god please be my friend I'm so lonely
