I never really know how to write about myself. I am not what most
folks would call "mainstream". I am many different things. I am a
homesteader (or trying to be) - meaning I am raising my own animals
and have a garden to feed myself. I am an artist. I will hopefully
someday soon be a scientist - I am in school for that - studying
for a Bachelors in Oceanography. I am Pagan/Asatru and very serious
about my religion. I love the outdoors and kayak as much as I can.
I am a brand new certified PADI diver. I hunt and fish (or try
I am a very social outgoing person. I love spending time with
friends and like minded people but I love my time alone with nature
too...sometimes I can share that part though! :-) I am very
independent but I like to have someone to come home to and a
partner to share life with.
What I’m doing with my life
Like I said above, I am trying to learn to homestead, I am learning
to live closer to the land by raising my own food (animals and
vegetables) and learning to hunt. I was a vegetarian for 25 years
until I raised my first turkey a couple years ago. I am also going
back to school for a BS in Oceanography, I already have a BFA and
have started working towards a masters in Anthropology (currently
on hold until I get a more practical career advancing degree!). I
am an environmentalist and work for the department of natural
I spend most of my time working my homestead (on rented land),
spending time on or by the water, doing my crafts, spending time
with my friends or religious groups and doing homework!
I’m really good at
I am really good at taking on too much and always having a full
plate! LOL I don't know how else to be. I stay busy and feel good
about the things I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
If it is warm out, they usually notice my ink. I have full color
half sleeves. Other than that, maybe my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sci Fi/Fantasy, particularly Mercedes Lackey, Marion Zimmer
Bradley/Diana Paxson (who I actually know and is a very cool
person), Anne McCaffrey, historical fiction, folklore.
LOTR, Pirates of the Carribean, Braveheart, 13th Warrior, Dr. Quinn
(I know, doesn't quite fit!) and believe it or not, Victorian
All kinds of music except perhaps rap. I love 80's music, I will
always be an 80's girl at heart. The best concert I ever went to
was RATT, Quiet Riot and Cinderella together! LOL But I also like
old country, bluegrass, Ska, Reggae, even some heavier Viking
I love good food of all types but I will only eat meat that is
raised by me, on a farm I trust or hunted by myself or someone I
trust. I love sushi!
The six things I could never do without
time by the water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my place in the world, how we can have as little impact as possible
and how we can fix some of the impact we have had.
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends or doing homework.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a very private person...I need time with a loved one,
cuddle time, little caresses, something that shows I am loved.
You should message me if
you would just like to chat and get to know someone like me. Please
take a note of my religion and be sure that is okay with you before
you write to me. I am very serious about my religion, about the
environment and my homesteading. Feel free to write if you just
have questions about any of those but please don't if you just want
to "save me" or tell me how I am wrong. I have no problems with
other religions or other ways of life and do not require or expect
my patner to be of the same religion.
