“The habit of writing for my eye is good practice. It loosens the ligaments.”
― Virginia Woolf
Welcome to my personal blog. It contains political thoughts, spiritual thoughts, artistic thoughts, personal thoughts, poetic thoughts… Anything bloggish that I feel like writing down and journaling about goes here. Won’t you have a cup, come in and sit and stay a while…? I have thoughts and stories to share.
A basic introduction to me: I am a body positive and intersectional feminist, a Wiccan-style witch, a branch of asexuality called demisexual, kink-positive, addiction-compassionate, a woman with a fairy-themed name, a tiny Irish-American, and a small-town girl who moved to the city. I am also a complete nerd, bipolar type two with anxious features, a consummate bookworm, the counselor friend, a good big sister, a social commentary themed poet, and a musician and guitarist specializing in dark dream pop and art rock, surrealist lyrics, and second soprano vocals. My bachelor’s degree is in writing and business marketing, and in actual career I am an ethical virtual small businesswoman and editor. I am a Sagittarius Sun on the cusp of Scorpio, an Aries Moon, an Aquarius Rising, an INFJ-INTJ cusp, and a Ravenclaw. I dress dark hipster, my makeup consists of red lips and smokey eyes, my favorite signature scents are warm and musky, I’m a brunette, and my key accessory is always my glasses. I drink coffee, tea, and wine, and I prefer classy meals and desserts with healthy, minimalist, and ethical elements. My aesthetic taste is cutesy, dark, and macabre and I collect stuffed animals. I love dancing, laughing, animals, concerts, comic books, punk rock, sound therapy, art, traveling, photography, my close-knit family, and life.
In personas and character types, I relate in my daily life demeanor most strongly to Ellen Page’s main character type, Mickey Dobbs from Love, Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars, Jane Eyre, and Jo March from Little Women. My character stereotype, if defined, would need to have a dash of Manic Pixie Dream Girl in it. My voice sounds most like Halsey or Paramore’s Hayley Williams in the higher register, most like Lorde in the lower register. These are my founding influences.
I always try to credit the artists that appear on my blogs and my feeds. Does anyone know who made my header? Message me if you do. I couldn’t find them anywhere, but their artwork is a thing of beauty and I would dearly love to credit them.
