AboutGreetings, stalkers! I'm never sure what to put for these things. It seems like no matter what I say about myself, it always ends up sounding incredibly stupid and self-indulgent. I'll just try to stick to the basics:
I have an MM in violin performance and make my living as a violin teacher and freelance performance musician. More recently, I also started working in substance abuse recovery. I love the work I do.
I'm male, gay, married, and poly. It probably sounds more complicated than it actually is. I used to be kind of into political activism and GLBT rights and such, but in more recent years, I've mostly stopped caring what society at large thinks. I just want to live my life, and anybody who doesn't interefere with that is okay by me, regardless of their personal beliefs. I have enough to worry about without obsessing over what every church or politician thinks of my romantic and sexual relationships. I live with my partner and my cat, neither of whom ever miss an opportunity to remind me that they're smarter than me. I also have two horses and a miniature donkey that I board on another property.
All in all, my life is pretty excellent. It hasn't always been that way, but these days, I find myself with very few things to complain about and myriad blessings for which I am extremely thankful. I do my best not to take it all for granted.
I've been on Gaia off and on for longer than I'd care to admit, although I've never changed my account or username, so if you think you remember me from way back in the day posting under another name...yeah, that wasn't me, I've always been SinfulGuillotine. I used to frequent places like the ED and LD forums, but these days, I spend most of my time on this site either obsessing over my own avatar designs or in the Avatar Talk forum obsessing over other people's avatar designs. Sometimes you can find my creations in the Runway and the Avatar Arena. I've even been known to place in the top 10.
I'm generally a pretty friendly person, and I tend to get along with most people who are at least vaguely literate and reasonable. I won't add you to my friend list unless I've actually interacted with you a little, but I love random PMs and I'm always happy to chat about pretty much anything. Feel free to drop me a line.
And for those of you who like lists...
