This is rather interesting. ^_^ I was just doing some research for a project and happened upon this forum! What A find! I have decided to hang out for a while. Anyhoo... introductions... introductions. My real name is Amy, but many of my friends call me yaten due to my fandom for an animated character by the same name. Anyone here is free to do the same... or you may call me by my real name if you wish. I hail from Rock Hill, South Carolina, which is just over the SC border, coming from the north. It is almost direcly South, and only about 15 minutes away, from Charlotte, NC. ^_~ Until a year ago, i lived in Michigan all my life... so i'm a northern girl, born and raised, and am just getting used to southern living. Anyhow... I'm 21 years old and currently attending the Art Institute of Charlotte, in the Culinary Arts program. I've only been there for about six months, but I'm really enjoying everything that I've been doing, and am glad to finally be in a program that I love. Well, that's all I can think of to say about myself. ^_^ I hope to learn some things here, make some friends, and engage in some interesting conversation, relevant to my choice of career.
