I started going by Shary in middle school. I now have grown accustomed to my birth name: Sharisse. I find that the older I get the more beautiful it sounds.
I am a licensed massage therapist as of 11/9/07. I am fascinated by the human body. I like to ponder life and death. I try to heal.
I am a DONA trained doula and work in childbirth. I love it and I wouldn't change it for the world.
My daughter was born on 12/9/07. She's the center of my world and sometimes she might collaborate with me on paper crafts.
I float around Florida a lot, and every few years wind up in Ohio. My address often changes. I'm hoping that along with the birth of my daughter, my new career, and my newfound sense of hope things can change and I can find a place I can call "home."
I'm not politically savvy, but I'm pretty liberal.
I don't like how history repeats itself, but generally speaking I like history. I like mythology more. I am obsessed with ancient Egypt. I study religion, but I'm not religious. I like Halloween best. I like everything about autumn and I hate the winter snow. I am full of emotion. I am full of love.
I love receiving hand made items. They just seem so much more "warmer" and special. The only kind of jewelery I'll wear (besides my promise ring) is of the hand made kind.
I like all things Kawaii. I like candy from the East as well. Pocky... mmm!
I don't care for keychains, however if it's really cute or you made it especially for me it's okay. I don't drive anymore (wrecked my baby in '07) either, so the chances I'll even get to see your pretty gift are lower than usual.
When it comes to flavors, I hate licorice. On the flip side, I rather enjoy raspberry chocolate.
I like cucumber melon as an artificial scent and when it comes to aromatherapy I prefer ylang ylang and all things lavendar. I don't mind a "thick scent" of basil or rosemary either. All potpourri pillows are fine. I'm trying really hard but I can't think of anything I don't like.
I love all types of music. Read bellow.
I love the human body so memorabilia relating to anatomy and physiology is cool. If they exist, an actual representation of the heart would be a cool keychain. Any kind of anatomical notecards or pictures are amazing.
I like elephants. I like big cats. Dolphins, however, are old news. I grew up in Florida, so give me a break.
I like to receive religious items as well. Statuettes or photocards of various deities are cool. I'm really into it all, so even a little pocket book of Buddah quotes is satisfactory.
I like mushrooms. Little cartoon mushrooms and little vintage mushrooms. :) Actually, I like anything vintage. We'll just leave it at that.
I write a lot. I have pen pals. Naturally, I collect stationary. I am very fond of Kamino Happy Mushroom and Crux Elephant & Favorite.
I have sewing machine I'm getting better at, but I've been hand sewing for years.
I am teaching myself how to crochet. I want to learn to knit as well, but that will come soon enough I suppose.
I dabble in a lot of other crafty things. I'm a "I CAN MAKE THAT MYSELF" girl.
I can honestly say I listen to everything. I love hearing new beats and lyrics, so feel free to introduce your favorites to me if we swap CDs.
