Now, let's turn this into something a little more intelligent.


I love reading. By favourite store is the bookstore, Barnes and Nobels. They have a ton of books there, and a coffee shop! Can it get any better? I have gotten my ears peirced, but I didn't really want to. I didn't know my friend still had money left. That, my friends, is why one must always be observant. You may just end up with a hole in your head.
Before we go any further, let me point out that I do NOT drink, I do NOT do drugs, and I do NOT smoke. I can't stand it. If you wanna, that's fine. But do it far, far away from here. And note that you don't look 'cool' in my eyes.
I don't know how to drive. I know, pathetic. But I'm really afraid of cars. Traumatic experiences, y'know? What can you do. I'm interested in motorcycles, though! Those might be fun.
I'm relatively defensive, even though I wish I could change that about myself. I can be a little bitchy when I feel I'm being attacked, or my morals are being put to the test. I'm apologizing in advance, okies? Goody!
I don't get along with my family very well. In fact, I consider my friends my 'real' family. And I have no shame admitting that. I used to beat myself up over the on-goings of my family, but now, I've moved on, and I can't say I care much.
My favourite colour is aquamarine, and I enjoy making up words (ask me about that if you want). I guess that's part o' my Aquarius nature. Spontanious. YES! I will eat your children.
Lesseee, there was a fire in my room a couple years ago (don't leave candles unattended!!), so we remodled. My carpet is now a nice moss green, like grass. It's really calming, and it makes my mother nauseas (she hates the colour green, I guess). All the better to keep her out, right?
I stare at ceilings a lot, mostly when I'm bored. I absolutely hate it. But I get bored a lot. I'm not really into sports. I play tennis every now and again, but I'm NO good. And I think golf is lame. It's not a real sport at all.
I'm completely head over heals in love with a guy, and he's the best person I know. He's always there for me, laughs with me, cries with me, comforts me, and enjoys the little things. I couldn't ask for more. So if you wanna play creepy stalker/cyber-guy with me, go somewhere else. I'm not interested.
If you wanna know something else, feel free to ask! I'm pretty easy-going, and I like meeting new people.




The Steps

1. We did not use all the questions in the description! Why? Because then the description would be way to long. A positive thing about quizzes is that they're often short. So to keep your description from getting too long, just remove some of the less important questions.

2. Elaborate! Don't just list things. Go into some detail. Make a few jokes, string together some pretty words. It adds personality and makes it much more fun to read!

3. Don't be afraid to liven things up. While this particular example doesn't have any embelishments, don't be afraid to go to Elftown Graphics and make it appealing to the eyes. Of course, you're always welcome to use your own artwork to spice it up, but if you're just not artistic, or too lazy, then ET Graphics has a wide variety.

4. Feel free to encourage others to message you. After all, this is Elftown, and it's okay to make friends and all. It also makes it easier for people approach you and ask you some questions you don't have answered. If you're having problems with unsavory people messaging you, there's always the option of making rules.




That's about it! If you have anymore questions, feel free to message [Moonlit Serenade], and she'll be pleased to answer. And don't hesitate to advertise this page.
