"Tattooing is not the hideous custom which it is called. It is not barbarous merely because the printing is skin deep and unalterable"- Henry David Thoreau, Walden
A mother. An artist.Not in that order, but for the most part I put mom-ing in front of everything else. I love science, anatomy, microbiology, pharmacy, and diseases. I could talk for hours about those things.I wish others did as well. I am a collector. I collect old things mostly- buttons, glass, bones, clothes, correspondence, estate items, jewelry. I love touring cemeteries in the US and other countries.I have an herb garden and own my own 1940s home. I am queen of DIY whenever possible.I make my own soap, facial care products,jewelry, you name it. I buy and sell vintage clothing. I raid estate sales for old clothes whenever possible.I have a large collection and it grows bigger by the month. I have a website where I sell, but it's been neglected since I started school. My dad is an engineer. My brother is a financial analyst working for corporate america. My mom never went to college. My great-grandmother was a nurse. I do not believe in soul-mates, but love is very real. I love hiking and sleeping in the woods, either alone or with others. I hate people that drive their cars on the beach. I despise most rich people. Very few are humble.And most dress badly. I do not like bananas, except banana flavoured candy. I love collage work. I collect things I find on sidewalks. This includes birds nests. I am deathly afraid of heights yet fly anyway. I am good at math. I only read non-fiction books. I actually enjoy reading my school text books. I think scars are beautiful.I hated high school but went to the reunions anyway. I am addicted to coffee with cream. I prefer to be alone most of the time but enjoy time with friends. Speaking of, I still keep in contact with all my friends from grade school through high school. No, we don't talk about Snoopy's or bad 70's pants, although that would be fun. I am most definitely a feminist, so don't push it. I like making new friends, so please feel free to add me. DO NOT ADD ME if you are homophobic, racist, or an idiot.
