Tell me about yourself! Anonymous 22916

Hey guys,

I'm fairly new to this board and I'm so happy I found this place, it's like a less bitchy version of lolcow while maintaining all the good stuff I love about image boards. I'm really quite curious of the people who post here and so thought I'd make this thread for you to talk a little about yourself!

So what's your:

i found r9k in my first year of university after becoming severely depressed over my studies, then i moved onto other boards like fit, soc, and currently pol (yikes, i know, for what it's worth, i only browse it for the entertainment value, i am definitely not a racist alt-right)
>current goal
finish uni!!!

>favorite movie
i'm a big fan of japanese animated movies like ghibli (of course), if i had to choose a favourite it would probably be wolf children since i can really picture myself living that kind of life in the country with 2 children and a vegetable farm.

I'd also like our little cottage to have a beautiful garden with flowers and fresh herbs. I'd adopt some cute dogs from the shelter who could enjoy our big country garden. It's also our dream to have a child together but I don't want to even think about children until I'm 30/31 lol. We love travelling and I want to see every corner of the world with him.
