I am geeky, and a creator of many things. I am a lot of things, and sometimes confusing things all at once. I am laid back in general, and very particular in my ways and home. I am a shy, unremarkable appearing woman who has a strong warrior spirit. I need private space and time to be alone when I need it, but I also need some social time, and lots of cuddles. I change my hair a lot. It's red right now. I highly recommend LASIK surgery.
I love finding new things to do and try. Always looking for something entertaining. I enjoy wide ranges of life, and wide ranges of personal style from time to time. I think it would be fun to dress goth and visit a goth club for a night, or to dress "cowboy" and hit a country themed bar for a night. Still going through the experimental, willing to try almost anything stage of life, I think. I love snowmobiling, and I would love to learn to ride a motorcycle, go hang gliding, learn to fly small planes and helicopters, ride horses, learn martial arts, etc. Will it ever all happen?
Recently I have become more and more fascinated by steampunk styles, and have begun working on some steampunk projects (such as leather buckle corsets and steampunk themed bellydance gear), as well as incorporating some Victorian aesthetic into my daily style and jewelry crafting. I also love medieval / Ren Faire fun, and love being involved with the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) where I can make and wear medieval garb (clothes), make needed items (like knife sheaths and other leather goods), camp, share mead or cordials with friends and brewers, listen to bards at the fires, do archery, axe throwing, and explore new activities like bellydancing.
I like making candles and mixing my own herbal teas (though I drink a lot of regular and green tea for the caffeine intake), and have done some home brewing. I have certification in bartending, though I'm not very well practiced- my social occasions with drink serving only come up a few times a year, and not many involve making mixed drinks. I like hitting the pub once a week for a few drinks with friends. I enjoy cooking only when I'm in the mood for it, but I always like good food. Cooking is another art to me, I prefer to do it intuitively and fairly unmeasured, and I get good results. A couple years ago I got into bento lunch making as a great hobby for small, cute boxes of cute/pretty food. I'm exploring work with essential oils for personal perfumes and massage oils. I like to say, "I do everything, and I do it well".
I enjoy work involving computers, especially digital graphics and web design. I love music - all kinds. I'm not used to having a favorite band, but now I can definitely say that Abney Park makes my favorite music. I prefer action, sci-fi, and horror movies, especially vampire movies, bad horror, and zombie movies. Preferred reading materials are pagan spirituality subjects, Greek mythology, how-to books, adventure novels, old Anne Rice novels, and Stephen King short stories. I like sci-fi, comics, superheroes, and some video games. I like artwork, including drawing, sculpting, and photography, but mainly anything in which I can take things apart or put things together. I love Halloween, and making costumes, and creating things, pretty much anything- I love projects. Sometimes I like watching football or hockey; I like playing volleyball, badminton, and things that resemble football and hockey. I love snowmobiling and would love to get one and an ATV. I also like anime and pretty things from Japan.
I love cats, and I believe they are mystical in their own right- connections between the human and the divine; I have a special appreciation for the goddess Bast, though I've not considered myself a true follower of Bast. My path is very eclectic, though not a major part of my life. I believe in something of a mix of everything, and feel most comfortable with the Greek gods. I also love lakes. I love the water, and I feel especially at peace at a nice lake, or by a beautiful streamfall in the woods.
Old profile junk:
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes. Cinnamon and sugary, and softly spoken lies, You never know just how you look through other peoples eyes...
"In the end you're always by yourself. You're all you've got. That's the point."
Love is Everything, but for me in this life, impossible. I would love to know that there are others who think the way I do, but my heart, my trust, my devotion, my beliefs, seem all too unique, and incommunicable to those I have tried to share them with. Those who I understand, who might understand me, exist only in the stories of heroes. My body in this lifetime lacks the capabilities of my protecting, avenging warrior spirit. This modern world lacks a place for that spirit to fulfil its purpose. Without purpose, without place, without love. Alone here, no matter who is there.
She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough. . . . And I don't know if I've ever been really loved By a hand that's touched me, and I feel like something's gonna give, And I'm a little bit angry. - Matchbox 20 - Push
There's a club if you'd like to go. You could meet someone who really loves you. So you go and you stand on your own, And you leave on your own, And you go home, and you cry, and you want to die. - Love Spit Love - How Soon Is Now

No Regrets Live life as best you can and harbour no regrets. Things happen the way they are going to happen, and so that's the way they happen. Don't wish that something hadn't happened, for if it hadn't happend, then you would not be who you are in life at this time. Whatever happens, there is always something to be learned, and it is these lessons that make us who we are. Do not regret them.
