You can't kill what's already dead.. :P
Well, let me start out with some basic info on me.
I'm a 26 year old born and raised Dutchie. My birthname is Annika, but I prefer to go by my nick Gossa. Nothing too special, just your average internet geek, spending most of my free time online, listening to music. Music is really important to me, although I prefer my silent contemplative moments as well.
Most of my hobbies include my computer, I love to make graphics, layouts, and websites.. coding somehow soothes me. I can completely lose all track of time when I'm working on my artwork, which usually results in great lack of sleep.
I also like chatting with my friends. As you can expect from your loyal internet geek, most of my friends (and even my boyfriend Max) are spreadout across the world and to chat is to 'hang out' with them. Mind you, I do have some real life friends, but well, lets just say that I'm not the most social person on the planet. I like being to myself, doing my own things on my own time.
Other hobbies (or maybe passions) of mine are reading -mainly fantasy and some horror- , writing -fantasy- , drawing, and vegging out on the couch watching horror/thriller movies with my dog and my stuffed animals.. hey what can I say, I'm just a loser like that..
Aww look it's my bat plushie ^_^
I LOVE animals, I have five of them myself (not counting my numerous plushies): as I mentioned, my dog Beau, he's a male Bernese Mountaindog and just a huge puppy who thinks he can still be a lapdoggie.. I also have two guinea pigs (Misty and Chocolate), and two mice (Frits and Freek). They're cute and make funny noises at me when I get home xD
My baby, Beau.
Beau around 6 months old.
Only ten weeks :)
They grow big way too fast..

Especially the first three I named have been a huge inspiration on my own writing. I love thinking up stories and I have way too much fantasy. I'm working on a fantasy trilogy that I hope I'll get published when I'm done with it. It's a lot of work and lately I, unfortunately, can barely find the time to work on my book a lot, but I will be making a lot of time for it again in the near future. My mom (who started reading -and getting hooked on- fantasy since she started reading my story) and my sis are constantly up my ass about it though as they want to know how the story continues.
I don't want to tell too much about it yet, but it's about a girl named Kaya who finds out she has some special powers as she grows up. She can use her energy to make things happen. She's raw and untrained though, and usually does more damage than good. She can also talk with her only friend, her dog Yeti. Right before she turns 18 she finds out she's been adopted. She decides to leave home to look for her real parents, to find out more about her heritage and powers. This seems more complex than she hoped for, as after a two year search, she and Yeti, with the help of an old witch who found Kaya as a baby, end up in another realm, another world. A world filled with fantastic creatures; Elves, Dwarves, Dragons, Sorcerers, and Magic.
Without realising it yet she has set her first step in discovering her real background, but the truth is covered in lies, betrayel, and ancient profecies, and she turns out to have some quite powerful and gruesome enemies...
Kaya's amulet, her only heritage.

I never thought I could be into rap and the such, but ever since I'm with my awesome down with the clown zombie boyfriend, my opinion on that changed quite a bit. I actually really like his music.
There aren't a lot of genres of music that I really don't like, I like something of everything I guess. Then again I can't stand to listen to most of the 'teeny-pop' songs.. they definitely annoy me to pieces.
I'm the kind of person who can listen to one cd straight all day long, I don't get bored with the ones I love very easily. I just put in whichever cd I feel like at the moment, hit repeat and let it play over and over. Maybe I'm just lazy though, lol.
Chocolate, pizza, lasagne, chinese food, greek food, more chocolate, vampires, dragons, fairy tales, fantasy, elves, skulls, chocolate, bacon and eggs, ice cream, vegging out on the couch or in bed, laughter, animals, and chocolate.
Yesss, you can see a bit of an addiction there...
I am a choco-junkie. I don't mind admitting it. I need chocolate, every day. If I don't have any in the house after the shops are closed, I go pretty grumpy even.. almost as grumpy as when I'm out of ciggs. Yea, other addiction there. Did you know that chocolate goes great with blood? Yea, you probably did know that.
Lol, thank you Chris xD
Bright sunlight in my eyes, pouring rain when I'm walking my dog, ppl who won't accept others for who they are, smelly ppl, ppl who eat my chocolate, ppl who put chewed gum in my ashtrays, and ppl who don't worship me xD
I don't hate a lot of things, cuz hate is such a strong word, in my opinion it shouldn't be used too lightly. Still, there are a few things that I do seriously hate. Animal abuse is probably the worst. There's nothing that ticks me off more than some person torturing a defenseless and innocent animal, just for 'fun', or for whatever stupid reason they come up with. They should be nailed to a tree by their private parts in public, and then be eaten alive by the animal(s) they've hurt. Slowly.
One of those things that makes me both sad and angry, is dogfighting. It NEEDS to stop. Now. Go to Jessica's profile and watch the video about Pitbull fights, and show your support by sporting this Ribbon:
Another one is messing with my friends or family. I get real dangerous then. I may be but a little girl, trust me I do know how to break your nose if I feel like it.
Oh and one of my 'favourite' pet peeves: People who judge others or more hilariously - call other people "posers". Seriously.. do you KNOW that person? Have you ever met them in real life? Do you know ANYTHING about their lifestyle, interests, friends, habits, etc? Unglue yourself from your computer, go outside, and take a good look around ya loser: everyone is unique, there's no such thing as a poser. Get over yourself, the world doesn't revolve around you.
Uh-oh. I feel a little rant-moment coming up now... Just some small irritations as a browse this site.
First of all people, when I'm looking at your profile, me finding huge pics on there that stretch the page and force me to keep scrolling left and right, back and forth doesn't really motify me at all to actually read your profile. If you're too lazy to resize your images, then I'm not gonna bother reading your text either.
And really, do I look like I've been waiting all my life to see a big freaking closeup of your nose all over my screen??
Also, I know the average human really can come up with something more to say about themselves than "blue eyes, big boobs". Seriously, if that's the way you want to portrait yourself to the world then by all means, go ahead and do so, but don't expect a decent rating or comment from me.
(I mean.. what IS one to say to that? "Have a nice day, hope you don't tip over" ?)
And just stuffing a thousand and one online quizzes on your profile to hide your lack of knowing how to properly introduce yourself will only annoy me more. If I see more than 3 quizzes on a profile I tend to skip to the bottom of it real fast.
Well.. I think I'm good for now.
Uh-oh.. It's my Yuckie Face :o
It tells you the Gossa is displeased.
First of all, my absolute number one in life, is my boyfriend Max, I love him more than anything. He is my everything, I wouldn't know what to do if he'd not be in my life anymore. I've had my share of relationships in the past, some good, most not so good, but none felt like this, it's like I'm discovering love all over again. Max makes me feel happy to be alive, and he makes me feel special.
I love my family. They have stood by and supported me through a very rough and dark period of my life, and still do. I can still barely believe all they went through just for me. They're my sturdy rock in this wild stormy sea that is my life, and I owe them more than I could ever repay.
My parents with me and our first two cats :)
Me and my little sister Sylvia :)
Sylvia and my friends Martine and Rene. (summer '05)
Someone very special to me is Dana, my best friend and brain-twin. Not a day goes by without talking to her on msn, and even though we have only met a little over a year ago and we live an ocean away from each other, it's like we've known each other all our lives. We just.. clicked, no uberclicked, so well, it really is like we share a brain (well half a brain technically, because my zombie-boyfriend ate half of it =_=).
Also very close to my heart is my sis Brittany, anyone messing with her would definitely have me up their ass big time. She's one of the best friends I ever had, and she's great to talk to. She's funny, sweet, caring, and I love her to death.
Lyssa is another awesome friend who's name has to be on here. She's a total sweety! She's the one who bought me my first month of premium on here so big BIG Thank You to her ^^ It's fun to chat with her and I love making her laugh and spit out her soda on her keyboard xD
Now here's someone very special, Colin, a really nice guy and a great sweet friend. Met him here on VR and he's just really cool to talk with :)
Of course I can't forget Chris, he's a really cool guy. He called me a goober, but it's ok cuz he's always sending me chocolate pics ^_^
..just call me Gossa, it's so much shorter :)
It also tells me that you've actually read my profile. :P
..and if you add me as your friend, let me know, so I can add you back.
..I'm here to make new friends, not to find me a friggin prom date. I'm already happily taken.
..if you don't like the comment I gave you - . I don't give a crap. I rate honestly and if your tender soul can't take a little brutal truth then that's not my problem.
..if I bit you, it means I liked something about you enough to sink my teeth into it. It does not mean I'm into you 'like that'.
..I do not, nor will I ever, cyber with you. I do not appreciate any comments of a sexual or flirting nature, keep it to yourself, it won't impress me.
..I did my own graphics on here (always do), so hey.. NO STEALING! *frowns on you* :P
My clown Wacko is trained to devour thieves..
Here he is demonstrating his infamous Wacko Dance Kick.
Be afraid.. be very afraid :o
Aloof and animalistic, you belong to the Gangrel Clan. Closely associated with werewolves, you are the shapeshifting vampire. You prefer nature than to live in the city and prefer the company of animals than of humans. You are more known to keep to yourself then to help others. You are the lone wolf of the decendents of Caine.
What Vampire Clan Do You Belong To?
