I'm Saryn, known to the offline world as Tiffany. I live on the northern end of Vancouver Island, where the highway ends and boredom begins. I'm 21 and live at home with my Mom and my younger brother, Brian. You'll probably hear me complain about him a lot. My Dad passed away May 2008 of peritonitis, a complication from the feeding tube they put in when he was in the hospital with Esophageal Cancer. He is unbelievably missed, and one of the larger reasons why I still live at home.
I work night shifts at Chevron and I'm a self-proclaimed nerd. I read voraciously, write occastionally, have six characters that I roleplay on an online X-Men site, play an Elemental Shaman on Khadgar in World of Warcraft (though I don't raid as much as I used to) and probably spend more time on the computer than I should. I'm an amature photographer hoping to improve my skills at photography. I'm also into Asian Ball Jointed Dolls, which is part of why I'm making an attempt to revive this journal.
I watch TV a lot too, and some of the shows I regularly watch are Fringe, Dollhouse, Defying Gravity, Stargate Universe, Grey's Anatomy, Deadliest Catch, Chuck, TrueBlood, Warehouse 13, Ugly Betty, and Castle. I'm not a hardcore Browncoat, but I really wish Firefly was still on the air. I'm also a fan of Kyle XY, Battlestar Galactica, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Reaper, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and Doctor Who.
Some of my favorite authors are Kelley Armstrong, Elizabeth Haydon, Sara Douglass, George R.R. Martin, Alexandra Erin (web author) and Charlaine Harris. I read webcomics too, like The Meek, Gunnerkrigg Court, Phoenix Requiem, Least I Could Do and Looking For Group.
