About Me

I AM TAKING A BREAK FROM SWAP-BOT DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES.



Even after years of social networking and online profiles, I’m still not used to writing about myself. It’s taken me a while to fill in this profile and I will periodically add to it as needed. This isn’t a complete portrait of me. All I can say is that I am a very eclectic person. Some people see me as complicated. I see myself as boundless. I see myself as organized chaos. I embrace my insanity.


Greetings All! My name is Veronique. I’m 31 years old, pansexual/bigender, an eclectic pagan, born and raised in NYC. I attended Pace University; majored in English (Lit & Culture) and Women’s & Gender Studies with a minor in sociology. I recently received a complimentary minor certificate in Queer Studies for my work with the campus gsa.

A BIT ABOUT ME - LOVES & LIKES I’m turning 32 in January, but feel about half my age. I love rock climbing (bouldering, top-roping, sport climbing). / I love hiking and backpacking. I work at the biggest, year-around costume shop in NYC, Halloween Adventure. / I’m also a fitness instructor. I love exercise and sports! I love rollerblading. / I’ve done a few 5K races and mud runs, but have to be careful because of my knees. / I love books, cafes, museums, puzzles, video games, writing, art, poetry, world religions, music, concerts, operas, ballets, movies/foreign films, coloring, laying in cat piles, spontaneous adventures.

I’m very open-minded and will try almost anything once.

I’ve go-go danced for local metal bands around NYC and NJ.

I have rheumatoid arthritis which felt like a death sentence when I was diagnosed with it a few years ago. My doctors/specialists weren’t positive or encouraging. I had toxic reactions to the meds that they were shoving down my throat. The constant pain made me feel as if my life was at a standstill. Movement is freedom. Not being able to dance, exercise or compete made me feel as useless and dead. Things improved once I took a more active role in my health. I switched to natural supplements and now my condition is mainly managed by my diet and exercise. I now call RA my “warning bell”. It creates more self-awareness and reminds me to consistently nurture my mind and body. Dancing, teaching fitness classes, rockclimbing. I can do it all. I love reading articles about people who have RA or other mobility/joint issues who are living life to the fullest. Please share any articles that you may find.

10 Quirks 1 - I love breakfast food (especially pancakes) any time of day. 2 - I rock combat boots or stilettos depending on my mood 3 - I love the smell of books. 4 - I pick up things with my toes. 5 - I love tea with an obsession. 6 - Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods (especially when it’s mixed w/ chocolate). Mac & cheese makes the top of the list. 7 - I feel drained if I don’t have contact with nature. 8 - I love steaming hot bubble baths (rubber duckies included). 9 - I have a passion for cats and cat-themed accessories/prints. 10 – I usually end up reading 2-5 books at the same time.
