Mid-twenties, female-identified writer from a rocky spit of an island off the east coast of Canada. This puts me half an hour ahead of the rest of North America, which doesn’t help me any, seeing as I’m inevitably the last person to hear about anything, ever.
I spend an awful lot of my time wrapped up in worlds of my own. My passions are mixed and eclectic and vary from day to day. These things you can always count on me to be willing to discuss:
- black dog lore and other fairy tales and folk stories
- organized crime
- fancy goldfish
- Doctor Who
- Rizzoli & Isles
- 2 Broke Girls
After twenty years of denial I have come to terms with the fact that I am about as queer as a three-dollar bill.
I identify as agnostic with a sprinkling of atheist; that is to say that I don’t think about religion enough to even consider it a minor part of my life, but if it does come up, my response is usually thinly-veiled skepticism.
Last year I started dating the girl I’ve been quietly in love with for quite some time. Her name is Jessie. You will find her frequently mentioned here, because all I do is think about her. She’s the person I’ll spend the rest of my life loving.
I live in a small room filled with lanterns, gargoyles, and Venetian masks. My roommate is a very grouchy and obscenely adorable brindle hedgehog who goes by the name of Lucy. There will always be Lucy posts. She is equal parts muse and projection of my own irritability. I love her like burning.
I like bats, hyenas, aardwolves, rats, reptiles, Welsh corgis and English bull terriers. I never once claimed to be normal.
I consider myself an inscribed woman and am covered with literary and musical text tattoos. There are six right now and more to come.
I am studying to one day be a content editor of fiction novels. I cannot cook or dance. I have trouble sleeping at night when I don’t have Jessie curled up against me. I hoard money most of the time but spend it foolishly when I don’t. I hate cable television but have an addiction to science fiction and crime dramas. I procrastinate when I shouldn’t. I tend to put immediate rewards above long-term solutions. I believe that going on unexpected adventures is the only way to live your life to the fullest.
I don’t like ignorance, intolerance, or rudeness. I will kill you with kindness first, but I don’t abide bullshit.
I believe in cutting people out of your life who are nothing but poison. Life is too short to live up to anyone’s expectations but your own. I’ve had plenty of experience apologizing for who I am and what I do. I don’t like drama and I will go out of my way to avoid it.
The people I keep in my life are the greatest friends anyone could ask for. There are six people in my life whom I know I could trust with anything. These are the people I am devoted to. These are the people I’d do anything for.
I like Shakespeare. I love e.e. cummings. I am passionately in love with raw wordplay and perceived magic.
I am your friend if you need one. I am your friend even if you don’t.
