Oh, also, these pictures are two or three years old now. My hair is a lot longer, I wear glasses now (actually I look a lot better with them than without) and I'm about twenty pounds heavier.
I'm wiccan/neopagan in a kind of lazy half-assed way. I'm happy to discuss or explain it, if you're curious. I'm not interested in defending, justifying or excusing it.
I encompass a lot of opposites. I can be optimistic bordering on naive or flatly cynical, deeply emotionally affected by what's going on around me or focused and distant, head-in-the-clouds dreamy or ruthlessly pragmatic, all within the same day. Once I've decided on a goal I will charge after it, though I do frequently get tangled and turned around in all of the options and possibilities. I'm working to streamline that process as much as possible.
I like learning things, especially about people and the way they think and communicate. My fascination with languages is what led me (through a long, annoying route) to my current academic goal...which feels like it's taking for EVER. I'm not the most patient person.
Change has been a constant factor in my life, and I now actively court it, getting bored if things stay too much the same for too long. I usually find shaking my life up with a change of scenery or activity keeps me from getting too antsy.
In the realm of things that are easier to make casual conversation about, I'm into books (especially fantasy and sci fi), music (though my knowledge of the music scene itself is actually kind of lacking), anime and video games.
