Newbie Greeting

Hello everyone! I just got accepted the other day! I'm new to livejournal, so I'm sorry in advance if I make mistakes!

My name is Kathryn, I'm 19 (20 in November!) and I go to college at the Texas A&M campus in Galveston (not the main campus!) but I'm from the Dallas area. I've been a Pokemon fan since I was reeeally young, and fell in love with the show, but I didn't really start getting into a lot of the merchandise until a few months ago (except for my figures and cards! And a pikachu plush and a Tokepi figure that sways and talks, but I'm still trying to find those.)

I'm going to apologize now, but I really only know the original 151, and a few Pokemon beyond that, but I'm learning! My favorite Pokemon are: Gastly, Haunter, Gangar, Ratatta, Eevee, Caterpie, Ponyta, Rapidash, Vulpix, Onix, Poliwhirl, Growlithe, Garyados, and, of course, Pikachu! (Wow, that's a lot... is it obvious that I'm horrifically bad at picking favorites?)

I got my first "okay, I know what I'm doing and I'll try this Pokemon collecting thing" plush about a year ago, and have been getting a new plush every-so-often ever since, but my very best friend (who showed me this community!) has showed me a lot of plushies and so I'm making more of an effort to find the one's I like!

I have a small collection of plush, and a decent sized collection of figures - I won't be able to post those at the moment because I didn't bring them to college with me, but around Thanksgiving I'll get something up!



(I hope that's not too big! If it is, please tell me and I'll fix it!)

My Chikorita, Chika, was my first "okay I sort of know what I'm doing" plush! I got her at my third anime convention.

The custom pikachu is Sammy, and my best friend made him for me! (I think she posted the story on here, actually...) He's my second plush!

The mew is, unfortunately, a bootleg, which I found out later, but her name is Kitty (mew... meow... Kitty) and she's my third. I got her at last year's JapanFest in Houston, and it was before I knew what different Pokedoll tags looked like.

I got Smile, the lying down pikachu, at this past A-kon!

And, lastly, Pumpkin is my most recent purchase, and my very first "I heart Pikachu" plush! I've checked that she's legitimate; she's the one with the blue heart key chain!

That's all, I hope this wasn't too long!
