Usa-p was an anime/manga fan circa late 90s/early 00s who fell out of touch with it eventually, but still enjoyed on occasion. Also fell out of fic fandom as a whole, just for lack of fannish energy.
I miss the glory days of fandom in my youth! *nostalgic sigh* As such, Usa-p is who I was, but not really who I am anymore, but changing pseudonyms is confusing for everyone.
Who am I now? I am a geek, a nerd, and a child at heart who still loves all the things loved in childhood. I like sci-fi/fantasy books & TV, cartoons, and games of all types, including board games, video games, card games, and role-playing games. I love animals, especially cats, but I don't have any pets because my partner is allergic. I collect My Little Ponies, obscure stuffed animals, and moose-related furnishings. I am a pack-rat: I just like STUFF and I like cataloging it all. When I am not spending too much time on the internet or otherwise engaging in geekery, I dance (ballet, tap, jazz, acro, that kind of thing.) Currently I've been reading a lot of pro-fiction (mostly genre) in English as part of the annual 75-150 Books Challenge.
