I've been gone for a while. You may have noticed I have not even signed on all this time. Everything that could happen, happened. A very dark time for me.
I am trying to come back now. Even if your swap was angeled. Please let me know if I owe you something. I will attempt to look back and see what I owe and get things sent out. I hope things are settled so I can swap again. Because I do love this place!
Hi! I'm a 30-something gal that enjoys such an odd variety of things! I work with trouble youth ages 8-17yrs old and I also do tutoring college students on the side. I have been with my significant other for about 14years. In case it bothers anyone, yah we aren't married and live together. The fact that my mother is religious and accepts me for it, is all that I need to live peacefully.
Oddly enough I'm a strange egg. I love oil painting and I like weird beautiful things. If you've seen the movie " The Fall" it's my favorite movie. It's odd enough, poignant enough and gorgeous enough to have me written all over it. At the same time I really enjoy zombies! It's* not the gore*, but the idea of humans being monsters in an obvious sense. Also the survival factor! But know it's not about the gore. I hate movies about people who kill other people in the woods or movies about torturers or anything like that. I like zombie ones because the zombies don't think. They are more like a force of nature. I also ask myself would I be brave enough to go find my family in that chaos as scattered as they are? Would I survive such a thing? I like to think I would, but time could only tell if that ever happened.
Anyways! I love reading, writing, animals, art, asian culture ( I'm from there ), Europe ( cause I never been there!!), Actually all cultures!, sociology, true crime, poetic lyrics..
As for swaps I'm a bit open. I like ones that require more artistry like decos or atcs. I'm just starting back into it slow, because I don't have tons of time so I don't want to be slow on swaps.
OH AND I LOVE TRAVEL!
Also I think felt desserts are divine!! o.o They are so pretty! I can't make any yet, but I would like to try one day! Also my Japan and Korea blog are above. I'm horrible at writing in a journal but there's pictures in them. I take a million pictures I never really put up. I hope to travel again and perhaps live in a foreign country for a year.
Also got to add the fact I love that Japanese like to reproduce food as cell phone charms and pillows hehe. Also that they can make a character that is cute even if the real animal is totally not cute. One thing, animals that are not hurt or anything, but in weird things like a sandwich.
I am very into the concept of the flaw being the beauty. I do not believe in in Utopia. I believe in a beautiful imperfect world full of less than perfect people. Clumsy, scarred, tossed around by life, our survival of these events and strength to carry on are far more beautiful than the flawless porcelin dolls.
