[lirpa_chan]: A host to my existential teenage and now adult angsting from 2004 - present. It is a still a working journal. For inquiring minds, 'Lirpa' (lur-pa) is 'April' backwards; an endearment my friends gave me.

:: Mini Bio ::


My name is April ♥. I am an avid anime and manga fan which is, for the uneducated, Japanese animation and comic books. My dream is to become a famous author and/or illustrator. As that may suggest, I spend a lot of my spare time writing and drawing. And reading. I love to read :D. Music is another passion of mine; I'll listen to just about anything, but I must admit to be partial to alternative rock... and probably anything that features a piano XD. There's just something awesome about it, you know?

This journal is primarily for fangirl purposes. I love shoujo (girl's comics), but am neck deep in the hit shounen (boy's comics) manga Naruto. Expect to see a lot of keyboard smashes, CAPSLOCKS, and random rambling. If you think you can handle that and a dash of RL Drama here and there, friend me :D. Really, I don't bite~ ♥
