"We all have dreams, and we all have the right to pursue them, but when you pursue them, you must be willing to catch it with both arms instead of letting someone else do it for you. But don't worry, capturing dreams isn't exactly a picnic, but it isn't exactly a mountain trek either. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something. If you know that you can do it. Do it" ~ Something I found in one of my diaries from age 10

Favourite Bands/Singers I like: 

A lot of the very talented musicians below hold vital roles in inspiring me to write my next big story, from how the music plays throughout to the actual lyrics of the songs. For every story (or chapter), I'll try and create a playlist that I would listen to so hopefully you can get a feel of the atmosphere. It ranges from heavy metal to classic music, and sometimes a combination of the two in some cases. It's difficult to point out what artist/band inspired my latest story the most, but it's probably the beautiful music of Nobuo Uematsu who's contribution is essential to the beauty of the Final Fantasy games. Either way, all the music listed below plays a key role to inspire me.
