I highly recommend LASIK surgery. I change my hair a lot. It's red right now. A friend of mine says I should mention that I've lost 60lbs this year, and still going, though it feels a bit embarrassing to mention. I've spent the year working out a few times a week and playing at bellydancing, which is awesome, and none of that's going to change. Health is high priority for me, and life feels pretty good these days.
I love finding new things to do and try. Always looking for something entertaining. I enjoy wide ranges of life, and wide ranges of personal style from time to time. I think it would be fun to dress goth and visit a goth club for a night, or to dress "cowboy" and hit a country themed bar for a night. Still going through the experimental, willing to try almost anything stage of life, I suppose. I love snowmobiling, and I would love to learn to ride a motorcycle, go hang gliding, learn to fly small planes and helicopters, ride horses, learn martial arts, etc. Will it ever all happen?
Recently I have become more and more fascinated by steampunk styles, and have begun working on some steampunk projects (such as leather buckle corsets and steampunk themed bellydance gear), as well as incorporating some Victorian aesthetic into my daily style and jewelry crafting. I also love medieval / Ren Faire fun, and love being involved with the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) where I can make and wear medieval garb (clothes), make needed items (like knife sheaths and other leather goods), camp, share mead or cordials with friends and brewers, listen to bards at the fires, do archery, axe throwing, and explore new activities like bellydancing.
I like candle making and mixing my own herbal teas (though I drink a lot of regular and green tea for the caffeine intake), and have done some home brewing. I have certification in bartending, though I'm not very well practiced- my social occasions with drink serving only come up a few times a year, and not many involve making mixed drinks. I like hitting the pub once a week for a few drinks with friends. I enjoy cooking only when I'm in the mood for it, but I always like good food. Cooking is another art to me, I prefer to do it intuitively and fairly unmeasured, and I get good results. A couple years ago I got into bento lunch making as a great hobby for small, cute boxes of cute/pretty food. I'm exploring work with essential oils for personal perfumes and massage oils. I like to say, "I do everything, and I do it well".
I enjoy work involving computers, especially digital graphics and web design. I love music - all kinds. I'm not used to having a favorite band, but now I can definitely say that Abney Park makes my favorite music. I prefer action, sci-fi, and horror movies, especially vampire movies, bad horror, and zombie movies. Preferred reading materials are pagan spirituality subjects, Greek mythology, how-to books, adventure novels, old Anne Rice novels, and Stephen King short stories. I like sci-fi, comics, superheroes, and some video games. I like artwork, including drawing, sculpting, and photography, but mainly anything in which I can take things apart or put things together. I love Halloween, and making costumes, and creating things, pretty much anything- I love projects. Sometimes I like watching football or hockey; I like playing volleyball, badminton, and things that resemble football and hockey. I love snowmobiling and would love to get one and an ATV. I also like anime and pretty things from Japan.
I love cats, and I believe they are mystical in their own right- connections between the human and the divine; I have a special appreciation for the goddess Bast, though I've not considered myself a true follower of Bast. My path is very eclectic. I believe in something of a mix of everything, and feel most comfortable with the Greek gods, particularly Aphrodite & Dionysus. I also love lakes & streams. I love the water, and I feel especially at peace at a nice lake, or by a beautiful streamfall in the woods.
I am adaptable, capable, and multifaceted
