I'll be coming to Lampeter in September for the final year of my Bachelor's in Creative Writing. Don't hesitate to shoot me a message if you live in Ireland, England, Scotland or elsewhere in the UK (Faroe Islands?). I plan to do a lot of traveling and exploring :3
I'm a writer, a yoga practitioner (can't get used to the taste of 'yogini'), an artistic person who tries to find lightheartedness and humour in art, and a bit of a culture/art nerd when it comes to certain sounds, aesthetics or design philosophies. I'm still filling in the missing pieces--show me any art you like and start a conversation. I usually enjoy the avant-garde or experimental or genre-defying stuff. I don't enjoy labels but sometimes they're necessary.
and here's some info that relates to me in a neutral to positive way-
My eyebrows grow very hairy when I don't get enough sleep. I'm from Vancouver, Canada. I wish I knew how AdBlock worked. I can be a massive troll. I'm doing yoga teacher training this summer on Salt Spring Island and I'm very glad about it. I have a Holland lop bunny called Jordon (not Jordan) and when I get up to get water in the middle of the night he's scared shitless by my movements and jumps so hard his poo pellets go flying. It's fun and gross and adorable and sad.
I just learned about Toltec Wisdom and my mind is blown. 'The ancients were so wise' is a good trip to be on. I'm good at inventing food and drink recipes. I have a taste for Danish mid-century modern furniture and tea sets. I use Goodreads and Etsy and Discogs compulsively. I hoard dried flowers and seeds and lotus roots and other organic matter. I love oysters and I could eat them for breakfast every day. Far Out Isn't Far Enough and Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry are two artist documentaries I really enjoyed and related to. I am a novice unicyclist. I plan to teach English in India and Japan within the next 7 years. I believe in many of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. As a child, my creatively horror-loving mind was opened by the book Coraline. I volunteer for a candidate of the Green Party in my city. I enjoy androgyny or simply nongendered being. I find most desserts too sweet. My favourite dessert is streusal. I love Copenhagen. I can be resistant to accepting really cool things sometimes because my silly ego is grumpy it didn't discover it first. I like to feel textures with my hands and feet. I like activities requiring balance. I like listening to music in bed in the dark. I worry I wrote too much and made myself seem like some kind of narcissist.
I read that narcissism is just the flip side of insecurity. I think in most cases it is but in some cases it's pure delusion. I definitely delude myself sometimes. I'm just blithering now.
And! I am offering my drawings/prints/stories/nudity for a what.cd invite. If you don't like it, there's no obligation. I do have self-respect; it's just exhibitionist and different from yours. :3.
