« she dreams in digital »
My name is Afton, though on Blurty I have come to be known as Ashre, or some other form of this name, like Ash or Ashy. At school and at most places in real life, I go by the name of Nara. My best friends call me Afty, and most people online call me Moon. Whichever you choose to call me is fine. I have no problem with any.
I won't tell you my age because I don't believe in people judging each other by a number. I would rather you not judge me, but if you wish to judge me by anything, judge me by words. Some to start you off with: Student. Writer. Artist. Daydreamer. Musician. Dancer. Friend. Hopeless romantic. Anthropophobe. Graphic designer. Empath. Nonconformist. Sister. Volunteer. Secular Humanist. Defender of Eowyn. Gamer. Elf in disguise.
JULY: Fun to be with. Secretive. Difficult to fathom and to be understood. Quiet unless excited or tensed. Takes pride in oneself. Has reputation.
Easily consoled. Honest. Concerned about people's feelings. Tactful. Friendly. Approachable. Emotionally temperamental and unpredictable. Moody and easily hurt. Witty and sparkly. Not revengeful. Forgiving but never forgets. Dislikes nonsensical and unnecessary things. Guides others physically and mentally. Sensitive and forms impressions carefully. Caring and loving. Treats others equally. Strong sense of sympathy. Wary and sharp. Judges people through observations. Hardworking. No difficulties in studying. Loves to be alone. Always broods about the past and the old friends.

Easily hurt but takes long to recover.
« living in a permanent imagination »
I wish I had fabulous stories to share of the place where I live, but I don't. This is one of the reasons why I have dubbed this hole I reside in 'The Middle of Nowhere'. Nothing happens, and you can't get anywhere without a car. I hate living here and cannot wait for the day when I can leave again.
I wasn't born here. I was born in the town of Gouda, in the country of the Netherlands, more often referred to by me as Holland. I resided there until 1997. From then on, I lived in Germany for two years before moving to the States.
As I mentioned, I don't like it here. I can't stand America and most Americans, and I hate Bush. I might have a tendency to rant; if you are American, please don't take offense. I don't have much against Americans individually, it's just them as a people that make me want to reel sometimes.
After college, I hope to be able to move to Japan or Singapore or someplace like that. I have hopes of becoming an animation/graphics designer, especially in the gaming industry. One day I will become an author and write many books, but until then, I need some other occupation to bring in the money. ;] And until then I can only daydream.
I live more inside my own head than anything. I'm an avid dreamer/daydreamer, and sometimes can't tell the difference between what is real or plausible, and what is not.
« sleeping to escape reality »
When all is said and done, my life is not too brilliant, but this is not my place to complain about it. In any case, I am blessed with many people in my life who are very dear to me, who mean everything to me.
My family, with the exception of a few extraodinary friends, is by far what means the most to me. I live with my mom, Joyce (Joy), who used to be a part-time art teacher until she was diagnosed with breast cancer; dad, Adrian (A3), who works as the Marketing Director for what used to be Compaq and is now Hewlett-Packard; and my younger sister, Crystal Deborah (Debby), who is 12 years old and beginning to enter that stage where she is exploring all the limits and getting on everyone's nerves. She's obsessed with make-up, clothes, and Avril. Scary? Probably. But I love my family. :)
My extended family is also very close to my heart, especially my mother's side. My maternal grandfather was Chinese and my grandmother Indonesian, making mom 50/50 and me a quarter of each plus half Dutch from dad's side. Anyway, the Asian influence has had a very strong impact on my life. Our family's very close-knit; we band together very strongly. These bonds are in jeopardy now because my grandfather passed away last year and my grandmother will most likely soon join him, but we still value all the time we all have left together, and hopefully one of my aunts or uncles will take their place as head of the family when the time comes.
I also have many friends who have come to be like brothers and sisters to me. Many are older than me, but because of the way I am, I often take on the role of older sibling to them. I don't mind. :) Nuiha and Lisa are like my twins. Phoebe, Christine, Salks, Elon, and several others are my older sisters. Josh, Kyle, and a few others are my brothers. And Tom is everything. :)
« guilty by design »
This journal, formerly known as dreams of romance and now known under the name of mihyn amoceis (Al Bhed, a language from the game Final Fantasy X, for 'lunar elysium'). It was updated, cherished and maintained by me, Afton, until a horrible act on my sister's part forced me to close it and move my blog here.
Layout specs: Current theme is the song "Fiction (Dreams in Digital)" by Orgy. The current layout is version two point oh, actually version one of the non-romance blog, but oh well. ^_~ This layout was made by me, and all work was my own, though credit is given where it's due. My sublime icons were made especially for me by the beautiful ecchi.
« i used to compose your dreams »
If you have visited my journal before, you might know that it used to be what I called a 'romance blog'. It was a place where I charted the events of my practically nonexistant love life. However, I found there wasn't enough to continue writing in full, and I found the journal to only show a quite shallow side of me. I finally decided to change it to a more normal journal.
The romance blog can still be found intact at my CrazyLife, in case you were interested (though I quit updating it long ago, for lack of anything worth writing about and the realization that it was a stupid idea in the first place).
My Blurty is my blog where I write about what happens to me from day to day, some of the random thoughts that tend to go through my head, and post amusing or interesting conversations with others on IM. I hope this will be a bit more interesting for my readers, and that you will enjoy this more now that you get to see what makes up me a little more. :) As mentioned, this journal is no longer updated. My true journal can still be found where it is and always has been -- on DeadJournal. This journal is probably the best example of me & my personality, although you'd have to read all of them if you truly want to know everything that makes me me. My DJ is also rarely updated.
My new blogs are located here and here.

I married Keanu Reeves and Colin Farrell...aren't YOU jealous?!
« my finger's on the kill switch »
I don't tolerate flamers. If you have nothing better to do than to harrass others, whether because of their age or something else, please get a life or go somewhere else. I don't feel like starting fights with anyone, but this has made it perfectly legal for me to be here. Please don't judge me by my age, and we will get along fine. My experience at Blurty so far has been a happy, enjoyable and enlightening one -- please don't ruin that for me. :) Thanks!
« don't be afraid to expose yourself »
You're more than welcome to befriend me on here! I always love making new friends. :) I don't believe in friends-only journals, but I do try to be there as much as I can for all my friends by commenting, talking to them on IM, making graphics, etc. It's one of the reasons why I've become so loyal to Blurty -- the people here are nice, and they make it worth continuing to keep a journal. ^_^
I do have a couple of rules if you want to be on my friends list:
A) -- If I go to the trouble of commenting to your entries, at least comment to mine sometimes. I'm not asking all the time, but don't just add me to feel 'popular' and then never talk to me. Or talk to me on IM sometime or something. I want to get to know you!If you agree to follow these rules, and if you add me to your friends list, I'll always add you back! ^_^ If you're adding me, please leave a comment as well, just so I know. I have a tendency to be a bit slow and not always notice changes to my userinfo sometimes.
B) -- Use the <lj-cut> tag when posting really long entries, photos, or quiz results. The layouts for my journal pages easily break, especially the friends page, because people post their entries chokfull of large images and quiz results. The lj-cut tag was made for a reason, people, so use it.
C) -- Try to minimize the HTML you use in your entries, especially <marquee>'s. Remember to close your <marquee> tags with </marquee>, especially for those of you who like to use those in your "current music". I have had occasions where people didn't close their marquees and my entire friends page ended up scrolling back and forth. I don't tolerate this. If you're so obsessed with HTML, use it to make a layout or something.
D) -- Update your journal. At least twice a month. Don't expect to write once or twice when you first join, and then never again, and expect me to keep you on my friends list.
E) -- DoN't TyPe LyKe DiS and expect me to still read your entries. It's annoying, and it discourages me from reading what you write. At least try to spell correctly, use proper punctuation and grammar, etc.
F) -- This may seem a little odd, but I want you to value honesty over friendship, at least in your friendship with me. Basically, don't say anything unless you really mean it, and if I say or do something that bothers you or you disagree with, tell me openly and honestly. ^_~ I can't fix it unless you let me know what the problem is!
G) -- Accept that Colin Farrell is mine and you can't have him... rotfl! XD
If you'd like a better view into my soul, I do have a few DeadJournal invite codes left to give away, so as long as you've been my friend for at least two weeks, have commented and talked to me, have given me reason to trust you, and promise to actually use the journal, I'll give you one. ^_^ Just comment somewhere that you'd like one, and if I find you deserving (which 99% of the time I probably will), I'll give you one and add you as a friend. DJ and DJ friends are especially close to my heart. :]
Again, as I no longer update this, adding me as a friend is quite pointless. I will, however, link exchange or social blog over at beyond-sanity.ORG or p.NU/blog, and I do still get on instant messenger every once in a while, so feel free to try to get in touch there.
« before i shut you down »
I hope this has encouraged you to befriend me, on either this journal site or one of the others. If not, that's fine too! I hope you enjoy whatever choice you make, and I hope you have fun reading!! ^_^
I'd like to thank the following people for their friendship and support: Z <333, Rachel <33, Erica <33, Jowl <33, Marissa <3, Kelsey <33, Cori <3, Amanda, Bren <33, Mila, you (Lisa, Nui, Tom), Christine, Firgof, and everyone else I may have forgotten. You guys are great and I want you to know I love you bunches. ^_^
I'd also like to thank anyone who's ever nominated or voted for me for an award. It has never been my intention to win awards in these popular awards communities or have my friends nominate me unless they seriously think I deserve it, but I've won a few things nonetheless. My heart, love, and gratitude go out to you guys, whether I won or not. ^_^
