However, if I'd have to describe myself, I'd say I'm witty, strong, sensitive, passionate, caring, ambitious, very opinionated, definetly physical, somewhat intelligent, profoundly human and as such far from perfect, an introvert, sort of a basket case and rather on the artsy bohemian side. All in all a pretty saucy wench.
I might come across as overly confident, outspoken and sometimes even cold, but that's (hopefully) not who I really am. It's easier to seem like that then to show my vulnerability publicly. Showing my feelings and emotions openly is something I have yet to accomplish, so I put up defenses to shelter myself from harm. So in that sense I'm a huge coward, but I'm working on it.

- I'm a feminist.
- I'm a diva: I'm a burlesque performer, a drop-dead gorgeous and fatally glamorous lady with flaming opinions and kick-ass attitude. To me burlesque is the perfect way to combine many of the things I'm passionate about (music, dancing, acting, freedom to express myself in my own way) with a certain "je ne sais quoi" that I find the theatre and other forms of performance arts lacking. It's also a way to have a blast and play dress-up while being publicly politically active and contributing in conversations about social and cultural issues I find important, such as beauty standards or the distinction between sex and gender.
- I'm a student: I'm trying somewhat desperately to study film & television in Tampere University of Applied Sciences, but not really sure what I want to be when I grow up, so don't hold that against me.
- I'm a producer: I produce clubs and events, mostly burlesque and drag.
I know it's a cliche if there ever was one, but all the things I value most in life can be categorized under one or more of the things listed above in an "Aristotle's classification of living things" sort of way, and so I feel no need to be more specific.
(Just for the record: my definition of family includes all the important people in my life, not just my immediate family. In fact the majority of my blood relatives are not that close to me, but I consider most of my friends as family.)
Note: I'm not really active here, I log in from time to time but not on a daily or even a weekly basis, so if I don't answer you right away it might mean I haven't seen your message yet :)
