I am a recently married, young adult cat parent who is finally finding a stride in life.
I grew up in Indiana; spent my entire childhood in the same house, actually. Finally when I went to college I moved to West Virginia and fell in love with the mountains, so now I'm here to stay. I have one cat and no kids and that's the way I like it. I have a degree in English but I adore my military job (even though it's not entirely related to my degree). I love hosting game nights with my friends and learning to cook. The rest of my life looks like a bright and positive opportunity from here!
I enjoy thrilling activities like rock climbing, riding roller coasters, and exercising equally as much as I enjoy calming ones, like tai chi/yoga, playing the violin, and reading and writing.
I will listen to nearly any genre of music at least once, and my favorites are screamo, rap, rock, K-pop, pop, and Christian. I have a very special affinity for musical theater and musicals. I consider their energy and vivaciousness a pure joy.
As for films, I prefer dramatic or eccentric indie films and anything that makes me consider or reconsider my place in the world, simply in regards to other people or to the world as a whole.
I do read a lot, but I don't really have a favorite author. I like sci-fi novels, horror novels (and short stories), Christian-themed fiction, and cynical narrators.
Special places in my heart are held for the following: How I Met Your Mother & ER (TV shows), The Nightmare Before Christmas & Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl (films), Be More Chill & Spring Awakening (musicals), Black Veil Brides and Skillet (musical artists)
I have scratched the surface of many types of arts and crafts (drawing, charcoal, crocheting, knitting, sewing, string dolls, painting) but I would certainly not call myself experienced in any category. I am simply an explorer into the varied world of the arts. I am here because I have an affinity for crafting and I want to spend more time with it to learn and improve. I believe Swapbot is the perfect community to support growth and passion in this area.
Craft item: yarn/ribbon
I have no allergies and I have a very open mind.
