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 (I hate being called this). 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, then 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.

I joined a medieval combat club, I'm learning longsword techniques. And getting my badass armor on.
I am a Wildlife Rehabilitation Technician for rehab and release facility. I spend most of my day doing intake exams, giving medical attention to new patients, and doing a myriad of other animal related tasks. Some of the animals I work with: songbirds, predatory birds (hawks, owls, falcons, etc), predatory mammals (bobcats, foxes, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, the occasional mountain lion). I work long hours and usually take animals home for further care.
Have you ever known a socially awkward fairly attractive girl?
Most people when they see a decent looking girl, with her arms crossed, scowling or at least being distant from other people, they tend to think 'That chick looks like a bitch."
I think most people think I'm a bitch.
However, I'm trying to be more approachable.
And am also, indeed, a bitch.
Pantera is my favorite band. But I love Black Sabbath, Queen, um... I usually listen to one band for a year, then switch. I'm a creature of habit. Right now I'm on Queen, Pantera will always be my favorite but I'm really not very eclectic. I went through a Lady Gaga phase recently.
I have a few favorite-ish movies: Anchorman, The Big Lebowski, ParaNorman, any and all Wes Anderson movies, any and all Star Trek movies.
Favorite shows: Star Trek (starting to see a trend?), Futurama (don't try to challenge me at a Futurama knowledge contest, you'll lose. I'm not kidding), Southpark (don't challenge me to this either, I'm serious.), Spongebob, all those 90's cartoons we love. I also like stuff like 'I Survived' and 'Killer Kids' but I'm generally not encouraged to watch much of it because I get scared.
I love many foods. Here are a few: Steak (rare, not medium rare, rare), bangers and mash-- the one food I'll eat on my birthday. Anything Mexican, goddam I love Mexican. I love sushi, as long as it has enough fresh fish- no baked rolls or fake crab, please. Seriously though, this list is long. I may as well talk about what I don't like. I'm not a huge fan of pizza, but I will eat and enjoy it, I just rarely crave it. I hate cilantro. Um, I don't like dark chocolate.
I'm gonna need seven: My birds, Elwood and Byron.
Oops I also got more birds, so now there's Peewee, Uriel and Lars (the duck).
So that's math.
Other than that, I've been all about self improvement since I turned 24. Shit got real, to say the least. So I'm often thinking of ways to be better.
