My self-summary
Not really into these self-summaries. Frankly I don't have that much to say about myself, and in my experience these are usually another way for the conceited and self-absorbed to be just that.

I'f however I have to try and describe myself, I consider myself to be witty, clever, strong, sensitive, passionate, caring, ambitious, very opinionated, definetly physical, somewhat intelligent, profoundly human and as such far from perfect, an introvert, sort of a basket case and rather on the artsy bohemian side. All in all a pretty saucy wench.

I might come across as somewhat hostile or arrogant, but that's really not who I am. It's easier to seem like that then to show publicly that I'm vulnerable. Showing my feelings and emotions openly is something I have yet to accomplish, so I put up defenses to shelter myself from harm. So in that sense I'm a huge coward, but I'm working on it.

What I’m doing with my life
- I'm a mother: My son Urho was born in august 2007, my daughter Runo in october 2010.

- I'm a feminist.

- I'm a diva: I'm a burlesque performer, a drop-dead gorgeous and fatally glamorous lady with flaming opinions and kick-ass attitude. To me burlesque is the perfect way to combine many of the things I'm passionate about (music, dancing, acting, freedom to express myself in my own way) with a certain "je ne sais quoi" that I find the theatre and other forms of performance arts lacking. It's also a way to have a blast and play dress-up while being publicly politically active and contributing in conversations about social and cultural issues I find important, such as beauty standards or the distinction between sex and gender.

- I'm a student: I'm trying somewhat desperately to study film & television in Tampere University of Applied Sciences, but not really sure what I want to be when I grow up, so don't hold that against me.
I’m really good at
losing myself into things. I get carried away so easily.
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to ask the people. I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As said, I'm very in to culture and arts in all their forms, shapes and sizes. But in my experience the listing of books, movies and bands or even authors, directors and music genres is a neverending task, and even the most thoroughly made lists still leave something to be desired for, and so I usually just give up before even starting and simply state that yes, I have 'em, and all of 'em are excellent.
The six things I could never do without
Family, arts, freedom, beauty, truth, love.

And yes, I know it's a cliche if there ever was one, but all the things I value most in life can be categorized under one or more of the things listed above in a "Aristotle's classification of living things" sort of way, and so I feel no need to be more specific.

(Just for the record: my definition of family includes all the important people in my life, not just my immediate family. In fact the majority of my blood relatives are not included in my family, but most of my friends are.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking. Period.
On a typical Friday night I am
fabulous, as always.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I'm such a high maintenance privacy-loving uptight little primadonna, that I'm not going to share any truly private thing about myself with total strangers just 'cos a dating website is cheeky enough to inquire about them.
You should message me if
you have something to say to me. I'll respond if I think it's worth it.

That said: I'm looking for people who actually have something meaningful to say. So all the "hi how r u u r sexy u have piercings do u have MSN" -messages will be ignored. I don't mind telling people how I'm doing (usually the response to strangers is surprisingly "I'm fine, how are you") or to tell them that I don't use MSN, but I'm well aware that I'm quite sexy and that I have piercings and so these subjects don't strike me as a beginning of a long and meaningful conversation, unless of course the person in question is interested in aesthetics in some profound level, but with a starting line like "u r sexy" I highly doubt it.
