Petite Hello there. I am Petite. I consider myself a non gender binary person, but I do have a preference for male or neutral pronouns, so please use they/their/them or he/his/him pronouns. I have a female avatar for the face shape really. Rarely my avatar will be presented as a female.
I am an American, in a relationship. I have taken courses in French, German, and Japanese. I like to draw, paint, and dance. I like Modern dance and appreciate Ballet, Swing, Ballroom Dance, and Tap. I can be very blunt, polite, swear like a sailor, or try to convey things through guessing games. I like riddles and questions. If you want to get to know me, ask things. I'm rather shy and a terrible initiator, but I will try to keep a conversation alive to the best of my abilities. I may not get cues of when you want a conversation to end, so please let me know directly. It's harder for me to tell online due to the lack of body language.
If you want to know my interests and the like, send me a private message. Expect questions back though. PM is the best way to get to know me.
I will most likely decline random friend requests. I may accept them upon talking with you, or I may not. Depends on your reasons, and if I think there are mutual interests upon which we can converse.
In regards to my actual Astrology, I know my Starsign and Moonsign very well. I'm still working of memorizing the rest of my natal chart.
I'm very interested in ghosts, spirits, and the paranormal. Swap stories and games with me some time.
Sounds like the same thing someone would do with Facebook. Also, Skyrim!
That sounds far, far worse than it should. Ohhhh god.
I think a lot of it stemmed from his mom's disapproval of him smoking. He'd always brush his teeth right after, when, really, I didn't care about him tasting like cigarettes either. I can't say I enjoyed the habit though, so I guess there was that, and considering I complained about other random passerbys smoking, I get this odd feeling like...you know... I might possibly be biased. Only possibly though. I tried smoking once when I was young. I didn't really care for it.
That sounds interesting. The problems of my name come from people reading it, mostly. And because of people's tendencies to rearrange and fix words while reading. And suddenly, I am a whole new person. What a true artist, a martyr for the cause. You probably wouldn't like accounting with the rows and rows and columns columns of multi digit numbers that can span from way to high to way too low. And then you cry when you forget to add one, or forgot a digit in one so it screws up your math, and then you just. Reevaluate your life like. Should I readd things, or should I just go back and try to find which one I screwed up on.
As a sidenote, the captcha wants me to question everything.
Is Gaia really that good for alleviating boredom though? XP
Yeah, you can link me to your DA. And I'd be interested in seeing your more serious stuff if you ever get it somewhere in the realm of cyberspace. What other sort of things did your teacher make you draw?
It's kind of amusing, because he also smoked. He'd try to make sure the smoke didn't really reach me, and I didn't really mind it, but it's funny how worried he got over it compared to my own reactions. I suppose that's probably normal though. He was a cutie, so that might have been a factor of it not bothering me though.
How difficult is it to say your name? I know back in high school, people always screwed up my name if they read it, but nowadays, none of my college professors have messed it up. I'm sorry to hear that you ran into a lot of problems trying to go down the art path. I can't really imagine where I'd be if I was kept from making art because of allergies. Misreading numbers would probably be the part that gets you, honestly. Apart from some of the formulas, all the accounting I've had to do so far only really requires 4th grade math because a majority of it is just addition/subtraction/multiplication and such.
I actually really liked observational drawing. At least for the beginner's classes. It really helped my technical skill, though I do know what you mean by it being boring. During half the class, I'd normally be looking around at other people's works and talking to them. And my lungs will be fine hopefully. An ex had 6 cats, and I'm deathly allergic, so. That wasn't so great for them either. AND SO MANY PEOPLE SMOKE AT MY COLLEGE, WTF.
Do you have any recent art that you can show? I'm insanely curious. It seems like a lot of your teachers hated you. Or you hated your teachers. I feel you on the art on the side thing though. I know my art teachers wanted me to just pursue art, but. I don't know if I could really commit and make it my livelihood. Accounting classes were actually...surprisingly fun. I felt like I actually was learning something useful, and it isn't necessarily difficult. It was a nice couple of classes.
I actually loved the smell of the art classrooms. The art would just stick under my fingernails. Though. I was a little scared of the plastic spray adhesive. Which is a little amusing, because Sprayon is the number one typo of this alias. It sucks that you were allergic though. : ( And that your teachers hated you. My art teachers were always my favorites. I actually only really started drawing in college, so...they're kind of the reason I stuck at it for as long as I have. I probably owe them a lot. I will say that a lot of the mediums and supplies we worked with probably aren't good for my lungs though. : ( Which suck.
So many different language classes. Think you might do something with that eventually?
I've been mostly taking core classes and accounting classes. Pretty basic stuff, but god. The cultural anthropology class I'm taking is so interesting. Or maybe I just find the teacher hot. I don't even know. Probably both.
