My self-summary
Hello, friend! My name is Carlyndra, but most people call me Carly.

I consider myself a nerd and am in a variety of fandoms. I also play DnD and roleplay on LoTRO.

I would like to note that I have been in a long-term relationship since August 2011, and am using this website solely for friendship purposes. I am not looking for anything other than a platonic relationship.

If you would like, you can visit my tumblr where I post many things involving these fandoms, plus things I find funny, and many pictures of animals. Unrelated to this section, but also please send me the words doot doot when messaging me to prove that you actually read my profile. There's also more pictures of me there so I guess that could be considered a bonus for some people? I don't know, but here it is just in case: http://carlyndra.tumblr.com/

I'm almost never on OKCupid, and I am terrible about replying to messages.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm just trying to finish my 4-year degree.
I am a former Graphic Design Major, and currently a Studio Art Major as of the Spring 2014 semester.
I previously only focused on pencil drawings and photomanipulation, but this Spring discovered that I really love painting.
I’m really good at
Painting, drawing, nerding out, getting distracted by cute animals.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice.
People that I just met have a tendency to point it out. Apparently both the sound of my voice and my rhythm of speech is odd.
I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing; people usually give me very ambiguous words to describe it.
"Interesting" "Unique" "Distinct"
I'm also not sure whether to take these descriptions as compliments or insults.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cats falling off of couches.
On a typical Friday night I am
Derping around online.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm am a Hard of Hearing individual. I can hear pretty well, but it is hard to understand if there is a lot of background noise or if you are facing away from me.

I am in the process of learning ASL. If you are a native signer or a certified interpreter, please message me! I would absolutely love to talk to you!

I actually wrote a short article with a video of how people sound to me to better explain how I hear. I definitely think it's worth a read, especially if you are a Hearing individual with little to no knowledge of Deaf and HoH culture: http://carlyndra.tumblr.com/post/78559024689/
You should message me if
You're a nerd who is looking for someone to talk to about stuff.
I'm really bad about responding to messages, though, so I apologize if you send me something and I don't reply for a very long while!
