For the love of god, entertain me.
I have had an OkCupid account since I was 16.
I lied about my age, and said I was older (Sorry OkC!)
I'm saying this now because I don't even know how to describe myself anymore. There have been a million words written in this box over these past 9 years, very few of them true.
And now I will attempt to say some true stuff, for anyone who cares to read.
Hi. My name is Von. Actually, it's Siobhan. But try pronouncing that and then tell me you don't prefer Von. My parents never called me by a solitary name and I've been addressed differently according to environment, i.e. educational, social, professionally. So I don't feel attached to any one name, in that way I sort of lack an identity. I go by Von because it's easy, and the less irritating of my past titles. Also I hate my real name anyway.
Growing up, I always thought I'd be a musician, since music took up the majority of my childhood. But I don't think I'm one for the limelight. I was also fond of science, but thought it overly ambitious for a career aspiration. I have an encyclopedic memory which comes in handy with biology, and a deep rooted love for all animals. If that paints a picture of me dressed like Snow White surrounded by woodland creatures, than you're only slightly off. Picture work boots, covered in blood and dirt, wrangling hawks-- then you're getting close.
I'm trying to become a better, more content person. I've used people to make myself happy for too long and a place like OkC can really keep that type of habit going. I don't want a codependent relationship or one that will distract me from my real goals.
