Name: Christine Marie (Christine = follower of Christ; Marie = bitter; Christine Marie = bitter follower of Christ? refer to NameWiki)
Date of Birth: October 8
Favorite Season: autumn
Likes: psychology, Japanese language and culture, anime, manga, reading, writing, good food, bitter chocolate, sushi, cakes, hallways, grassy knolls and shady trees, riding a bike, papier mache-ing, art, and a whole lot more
Dislikes: green peas, olives, capers, studying (although I still usually pass most of my subjects with flying colors), etc...
Strengths: English, psychology, patient most of the time, careful and deep thinker, believes in the good side of people, cares deeply (although the true intensity doesn't show very often), knowledgeable and somewhat efficient in doing things
Weaknesses: history and social science subjects (except psychology), easily distracted, could get absorbed in one thing or person intensely for long periods of time, susceptible to negativity and depression, not very expressive despite being emotional
Hobbies: reading, writing, sketching (but not very good at it yet), contemplating about the meaning of things, lying on grassy knolls while sky gazing, observing people walk down hallways, researching on my favorite subjects (including, but not exclusive to: psychological disorders, human sexuality, and human relationships)
Talents: hyper intuition, writing poetic-sounding prose, good in picking up concepts related to language (although I'm not a linguistics major), thinking
Impulsive/Rational: I'm more of a rational thinker, but I'm a very impulsive buyer when it comes to delicious food. Mild Mannered/Outgoing: mild mannered most of the time... I can be outgoing when I'm trying to make someone laugh, though. Energetic/Passive: mostly passive Manipulative/Easily Influenced: I can be a bit manipulative when needed, but that rarely happens... and I think no one could influence me against my will.
What do you look for in a soeur? Someone similar enough to me that she would be able to understand me, despite my huge lack of expressiveness.
Have you participated in any club activities before? If so please name the clubs. I briefly participated in an English club when I was in grade school. In high school, I participated a little in Journalism activities, despite belonging to the Computer club/elective, because my English teacher (who happens to be the Journalism adviser) likes my writing skills. Though when she wanted to make me editor-in-chief of the school paper, I turned her down because I didn't like the responsibility and because saying yes would mean that I'd have to switch my club/elective from Computer to Journalism. I liked the Computer club/elective better only because I could play computer games after finishing the easy (to me) activities our adviser makes us do.
Do you express your feelings easily towards someone you admire? No. The most I'd usually do is just follow that person with my gaze, then smile a little. I'm not very expressive. Apparently, I have the opposite of Yumi's face. Except when I'm experiencing lighthearted emotions, what I'm feeling or thinking almost never shows on my face.
How possessive are you and how do you show it? I think I'm pretty possessive, although it rarely shows because I usually end up being more affectionate to compensate for my jealousies. In the rare cases that I do end up showing my possessiveness, I tend to have "gloom" all over my aura.
Are you someone who has a good temperament? I guess I am... unless you hurt someone very important to me. Or if you're trying my patience, which I happen to think is very long as it is.
How do you cope with loss or change? I shut myself off from everyone and everything. I may still be able to interact with others, but I'm usually very out of it because I'm really shut up in my head.
Aside from what has been filled out, give us a description about how you think your girl friends would describe you. usually reserved, quiet, funny, good in making people laugh, serious, good listener and adviser, insightful, deep thinker, patient, hard to read, brilliant but always slacking off, laid-back, a little weird
Favorite Marimite Scene/Episode: All of the episodes related to the White Rose Family! But if I have to pick just one, it's the Valentine's Day scene where Sei and Shimako were headed home, especially the part where Sei pockets Shimako's hand.
I disappeared there for a while (somewhat horrible internet connection, ughh T_T) so I must apologise to those who have unstamped applications lingering.
In the spirit of new beginnings, I have decided that instead of trying to make *this* community active it might be better to simply create a whole new Marimite stamping community (that way I can officially be a mod instead of trying to do things from the sidelines)!
I'll create it within the next week (on another note, yay coincides with season 4!), but it probably won't be up and running for another week after that (have to make stamps and the like).
More information as it comes!
Comments and thoughts welcome. (and encouragements? I dun' wanna fail! DX).
I've let the community run itself for the past two weeks, but now, another update! ^^ I converted reverted back to the old link system (mostly because LJ's rich text system annoys me >_<) so just click on their username to go to their application.

I didn't forget . Okay, well I did kind of forget yesterday. Better late then never though, right? ^^;
Below is a list of unstamped applications, divided up by year posted. I hope I didn't forget anyone! So far everyone's been so wonderful and I hope we can continue that spirit.
I've noticed a few people don't have "Gokigenyou" as their application title. Honestly, I don't care because i'm not a mod (just an interfering and bored girl ^^) but please make sure you read the rules before posting.
I don't know how to do LJ cuts but it doesn't seem they're required so, hope that's okay ^.^;
