Now on to my self-summary...
HI! My name is Brandie. I'm 29 years old. I have a mohawk that is currently my natural brown but that will change soon enough. I have blue eyes and I wear glasses. I'm 5'6" tall and I'm what some might call a BBW though I just call myself fat or overweight. I weigh 250 lbs. I live in Bloomington Indiana (I'm a native NOT a student!). I'm a shy, quiet person. Best of all I am an official loser :) (Before you say anything about me being a loser understand I think being a loser is a good thing. To me a loser is someone who isn't popular or well liked but doesn't care because they are happy being themselves. A loser is comfortable in their own skin. A loser doesn't care what anyone else thinks or says about them. A loser follows his or her own path in life. Follows the beat of their own xylophone or kazoo. Basically someone who doesn't fit into conventional society but is comfortable enough with themselves to be cool with that or better yet is oblivious to the fact that they don't fit in, in the first place.)
I love piercing's. I currently have my lower lip pierced on my left side and hope to get the right side pierced as well. I want to complete the snake bites. I'm not sure if I want any piercing other than that but who knows they are quite addicting. I also love tattoos. Sadly I currently have none but there's a growing list of tattoos I do want and plan to get as soon as I have the money
I enjoy cooking I'm not the best cook but I can hold my own and I'm hoping practice will make me even better. Baking desserts and cookies is more my specialty. My friends beg me to make my famous sugar cookies all the time. My cakes are often raved about as well.
I love to sing (even though I'm no good at it). I also enjoy listening to music. I LOVE music! Music is my life. I'd die without my daily dose of music. (Seriously I listen to music for at least an hour everyday most days it's far more than that.) I love most any kind of music. I've had a keyboard for many years that I never really learned to play. I got a guitar several Christmas's ago and have yet to learn to play that either. Though I doubt I will maybe someday I'll finally pick one or both of those instruments up. I have a lime green ukulele and took a few classes. I'm not that great but hopefully I will be able to follow through with this instrument. Thanks to Julia Nunes (If you don't know who that is check her out on YouTube she's amazing.) I've developed a love of the ukulele and I hope that's enough to follow through.
I enjoy watching TV and movies. I especially like going to see movies in the theaters. I'd go much more often if it wasn't so expensive. I am also interested in playing SOME PS2, Wii, games like Mario Kart, and Cars. (I'm certainly NOT a "gamer" or anything it's just something I enjoy now and again.) I enjoy playing computer games such as The Sims, as well as board games like Life, Clue, and Monopoly. I also enjoy playing KoL. (It's an online RPG. The only RPG I’m interested in playing.)
I enjoy camping and hiking. I'm not too much of an outdoors kind of person but I enjoy nature. I feel nature grounds and calms me. When I’m outside and it’s calm and quiet it feels like I can finally breathe. City girl I’m not. Out in the woods or the country is where I’d rather live. I wish I could camp more often. Unfortunately I don't have the supplies.
I LOVE to sew. I make clothes for me, my friends, and babies/children, as well as purses, and craft items such as rag dolls, and quilts. It's a fun hobby that's quickly dying. I'm hoping it makes a comeback. If you would like to see the stuff I make you can check out my Facebook page Facebook.com/DuctapeFaerie, check out my Flickr account at Flickr.com/ductapelosergirl, or check out my DeviantART page http://ductapefaerie.deviantart.com/. I also enjoy making things out of duct tape. I make things such as wallets, clothes, jewelry/accessories. It's an unusual interest but very fun to explore. You would be surprised how many things you can make out of duct tape. Duct tape is VERY handy. And I don't mean that in any kind of sexual way. I just mean it's a very useful product.
I'm interested in photography. I LOVE to take pictures of nature, unaware people, and inanimate objects. I also love to play with the photo editing software on my computer. It's fun to take a cool picture and make it even better or more interesting. I know very little about cameras. I don't even have a camera of my own. It would be cool to learn more about photography though.
I like to read. I'm a huge fan of anything written by Henry Rollins. I enjoy writing in my journal/blog. I also write (even though I have no talent for it) poetry, stories, and lyrics. I enjoy drawing illustrations for my story's. I also like to draw floor plans which I suppose is an odd hobby to have especially when you consider I'm not an architect but hey I'm a weird person.
I LOVE kids and enjoy baby-sitting. I would love nothing more than to be a housewife/stay-at-home mom. However at the moment I'm unemployed and I don't have a clue what I want to do until with myself until I can be a wife and a mother.
I hate having to put my religious beliefs into a tiny box with a perfect tag. Religion, political beliefs, and sexuality aren’t black and white and simply cannot be shoved into a box like that. I can't say I'm an Atheist per say but I can't say I'm not either. For example I’m a firm believer in the paranormal. I enjoy spending time working with my Tarot cards and reading/learning about the paranormal, astrology, and palmistry. I also believe in karma and reincarnation. However I don't believe in God (or Gods)/Devil or Heaven/Hell or anything similar to that. I was raised in a Christian household where other religions weren't taught or even mentioned to me. I spent a long time thinking I was Wiccan but I'm not sure that's really the right path for me. For now I'm sitting comfortably in the Atheist zone though I'm still exploring other paths. I'm always up for learning more about other religions. You’re welcome to share your beliefs with me so long as you’re not preaching to me.
I LOVE animals. I'm very interested/concerned with animal welfare. I try to buy animal friendly products whenever possible. I don't buy leather or suede products. Because of my love of animals I'm a vegetarian. I support organizations such as ASPCA, WWF, and HSUS as much as I can afford to.
I'm also very interested and concerned with the environment and global warming. I'm a bit of a recycle freak. I feel people should care more about their carbon footprint and the damage they're doing to the environment. Everyone should want to leave the world to the next generation in no worse (if not better) of a condition than it was given to us. I wish people would care more. I want my kids and grandkids to have air to breathe and a clean planet to live on. I fear the Earth will become a giant trash heap like in the movie "Wall-E". Speaking of trash heaps (but mostly unrelated to the environment topic) Marjorie is my favourite character from Fraggle Rock.
Finally and most importantly... I'm a smart-ass and I'm very sarcastic/witty. You may not like or even understand my sense of humor but you'll definitely need a one to talk to me! I'll also admit that as a fan of The Office I'm guilty of saying "That's what she said." in everyday conversation. A bit childish yes but I can't help it. It makes me laugh. I enjoy laughing.
I am me, shy/quiet, and unique. Take it or leave it. :)
