I love to draw. I also love to write and experiment with different types of art.
I’m nowhere near perfect. Sometimes I’m shy. I can be super lazy, and on my days off, I prefer to spend the day in my pj's unless I have to go somewhere. I am in love, highly emotional, obsessive, and introspective. I am not bubbly, a pushover, patient, on a diet, or easily intimidated. Rather, I tend to intimidate people, unintentionally though. I’ve recently realized I’m quite vain, tho I’m very much trying to be less vain. It was a pretty big step, and since I’ve admitted it aloud, I can work on many other things. I’m also one of those people who looks at both sides of an argument in order to make a decision...so I’m pretty indecisive at times, tho it's generally hard to dissuade me on my own beliefs. I pretty much always play devil's advocate. Pride and Vanity are by far the "Deadly Sins" I have the most trouble with.
I don’t mind expressing my political and personal opinions on anything and everything, being it politics (duh), religion of any kind, society in general, different laws of different countries, whatever’s in the news, etc. I don’t subscribe to any political party, because I’m all over the place politically...pro-choice, pro-death penalty, anti-gun, anti-anti war protesters, extremely pro-military, anti anti-military, anti-peacemongers, pro legal immigration, anti-porn, anti-abortion as a substitute for birth control, anti-racism, anti anti-America, anti-animal testing, anti-rape, anti-illegal immigration (of all kinds...not just hispanic), anti-animal cruelty, anti-human trafficking, etc. Because of this, I love to argue, whether it’s about something meaningful, or just plain useless.
I'm very empathic. I've had premonitions, I'm very intuitive, I believe in past lives, aliens, spirit guides, astrology, totems, psychic powers, etc. I'm still quite skeptical about these things as well.
This is the place where I rant about things, post articles I find interesting or semi-interesting, bitch about work, work thru issues I'm trying to get thru, daily observations, post quizzes and memes, or just random posts about nothing at all. It just depends. But all my posts will include my opinions, ideas, and perspectives. I try to put really long posts behind cuts, but that doesn't always happen. I love receiving comments, and always read them, and respond to each one. I had an eating disorder (and still struggle with it sometimes), and was raped, so I do sometimes talk about rape, food, dieting, weight, women's issues, depression, etc. But these things dont always consume my journal by any means, as a matter of fact, I try not to post about them. So some entries could be seen as "triggering."

Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away. - Goethe
I shall never believe that God plays dice with the world. – Albert Einstein
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable. - Goethe
Wherever they burn books they will also, in the end, burn human beings. – Heinrich Heine
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. – Albert Einstein
Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim - Elie Wiesel
