Hallo. I feel like giving a little more information about me than I have so....
I've got a BA in English, and am currently working on my Master's in Elementary School Teaching. MAT for short.
So yes, compared to many of you, I am "old." Problem? Get over it.
I am a substitute teacher. And I will give you homework.
I'm a female. As if you couldn't tell.
I am happily taken. He's awesome. x)
I tend to judge people based on how they treat others. So if you try to be all nice to me after I watch you being rude to newbies on here, I will be... less than friendly toward you.
I love anything that is small and fuzzy. Especially my cats. x3
I like snakes and lizards, too. Even though they're not small and fuzzy.
Lilies are my favorite flower,
but I love roses, too. They smell wonderful. * u *
I can't stand chain letters of any sort. Even if you really do believe that they "work." -cough-theydon't-cough-
I dislike most fangirls/fanboys. Don't squee at me about Dr. Who, PewdiePie, Game of Thrones, Ponies, Twilight, or anything. I may enjoy some of these fandoms, but I do not enjoy your obsession with them. It creeps me the hell out.
That being said, I am happy to discuss your favorite shows/games with you, so long as you keep your panties safely untwisted if I happen to disagree with you about something. I don't have to like something just because you think God created it to save mankind from certain doom.
I like jumping in puddles in my rainboots. If you don't wanna get wet, don't walk next to me. o.o
I like going on hikes and climbing trees.
I can't roller skate on regular skates. But I can inline like a boss.
I have synesthesia. Basically, for me, weekdays, numbers, letters, months, and some musical instrument sounds have colors, if that makes sense. For example, Tuesday is blue, Friday is pink, the number 7 is yellow-orange, and November is brown. It's always been this way for me, but I only recently found out it had a name, and that not everyone's numbers were as colorful as mine. Y'all have boring numbers, yo.
I'm kind of shy. I'm really bad at starting conversations, but once I get to know you, I can be quite friendly. :3
When I ask "How are you?" I do actually want to know how you are, good and bad both.
My worst fear is of being forgotten. It happens more often than you'd realize.
Sometimes I act a little fruity. Get over it.
Anybody who wants to be my friend for the sole purpose of getting my gold will be removed from my friendlist. And probably added to my "shunned for all eternity" list. Or my hit list (I don't actually have this list yet. Don't make me start one!), but that depends on how much you annoy me. ;D
had a pet rat named Preston. He's... rotund FREAKING HUGE
dead. D-E-D DEAD. D:
I'm directionally challenged. Sometimes. xD
I run into things. All the time.
Getting lost isn't as scary if someone else is lost with me.
I have some very wonderful friends on Gaia, and if you're mean to them, I won't like you.
I have some very wonderful friends IRL, and if you're mean to THEM, well, it sucks to be you, because they give as good as they get. x:
I don't like people who pretend to know more than they do.
I don't like people who try to force their beliefs on me. I will respect those beliefs, so let's keep it that way.
You can call me stupid, or any silly name you want. Just know that I can call you even more names, because I'm an English major and know
can make up more words than you.
I have a minor in Spanish, so I can even insult you in a foreign language. I probably won't though, because you're not worth it. Also, most of the insults I know are German. Thanks, Grandpa.
Got a lot a theater experience, too. And I do mean a LOT. So I have no reservations about dropping a crescent wrench on your head or telling you how to do something the wrong way so you get yelled at. But I'm far more likely to make you props designer. That job sucks.
I do indeed know how to use a welder and a cutting torch. It makes me feel like a superhero.
Al Green totally shook my hand. I had no idea who he was.
So did the Altar Boyz.
Stage children are little diva brats. Not real children. They're fake. Seriously.
I've been to England. Twice.
I don't want to be your Gaia girlfriend/wife. I have a real boyfriend, and I wouldn't trade him for the world.
I saved a baby bird and taught it how to fly.
I want to be an elementary school teacher.
I also want to write a novel. Several novels. Without vampires.
I want to travel to a lot of different places before I get too old to do so. Won't list them all here.
Road trips are awesome. As long as I don't have to do all the driving.
I like exploring, as long as I have at least one other person with me. Y'know, that whole getting lost thing again.
So if you're ever chilling with me in a place neither of us have been before, let's go find stuff!
