Hello all! :>
I go by several nick names, my most common right now is Ilrak. I am a biracial female, currently trapped in Utah, and a raven therian. I am a film major as well as an amateur writer. I tend to be rather quiet and tend to observe more than anything else.
I constantly experience phantom feathers and occasionally a phantom beak and talons. I tend to exhibit birdlike behaviours, sometimes unconsciously (much to the amusement of my friends), and I tend to feel most comfortable "perching" like a bird.
For a while, when I first awakened, I thought I was a feline. This might have been due to having cats around all the time. After a lot of meditation and such, I realised I was a raven. I have a guide who is a magpie and a very strong affinity towards all corvids (they also tend to stalk me on campus. I finally met my magpie stalker almost face to face).
Music is my life. I always have music playing in the background and like to keep it as a soundtrack to my life. I use Pete Townshend's Solo work, Keir Dullea's (2001: A Space Odyssey) LP, The Who, and some 80's music now to meditate. I love pretty much all rock and roll music written before 1995 and my friends tease me for being old-school and having crushes on septuagenarians.
I love to birdwatch and I enjoy photography. I tend to take pictures of the birds in my backyard (who my mom and I have found a clever way to feed without being found out by our insane neighbor) or of sunsets or random artsy looking stuff.
I think that's all for now, unless there's something I missed.
