Who am I? The girl behind the writings? I’m sure you’re curious to a degree. That’s a rather simple question with a very complex answer. So let me try and explain it…
I am… a mother, a birth mother, an adoptee, a foster care alumni… I have experienced child abuse (physical, mental, emotional, and sexual), incest (by multiple family members), rape (multiple friends of the family), date rape (several years before I turned 18, which resulted in a pregnancy and subsequent adoption), child prostitution, domestic abuse, and so much more. I have experienced, I have survived, and now I share my story in the hopes that other children don’t have to go through the living hell that I had to go through.
I am a femme identified lesbian. I am out to all those around me, and I don’t hide in the closet either. I’m a strong supporter of equal rights for the GLBT community. I’m involved in an exclusive, monogamous relationship with a butch identified lesbian. I believe strongly in the butch/femme dynamics (though I show no judgement for your choices if it’s butch/butch, femme/femme, ftm/femme, ftm/butch, ftm/ftm, etc)… ]and as ironic as it may sound, June Cleaver is my role model .
I am someone who knows, someone who cares, and someone who actually really does give a damn about the things that go on both around and in my life. This is WordPress folks. It’s not my entire life, or even a fifth of what goes on in. You got questions about what you see here or about something you don’t see? I’m sure I have answers. All you have to do is ask. Just remember your manners when doing so!
Friends consider me to be an open book. I’ll answer any question you present me with if I know the reasons you’re asking it are valid. Dreamer. Believer. Lover. Friend. Sister. Daughter. Confidant. Mother. Beloved. Keeper. Sounding board. Traveler. Imaginative. Creative. Dark. A dreamer, a realist. Intense. Awestruck. Compassionate.
I seek out extremes. I possess a very open mind and a sly sense of humor. I’m outgoing. Seriously right brained. I take pictures. I work hard and I play hard. I’ve got a deep wild streak, but I walk the line too, yah? I’m freaky, but in a good way. I love art, literature, film, fashion, graveyards, kind gestures, giving and getting. I travel.
I’m willing to be friends with those who have an open enough mind to be a friend to me. I’m not going to fit into your box, so I hope that you can accept me the way that I am. Me? I’ll accept and love you for exactly who and what you are. I’m looking for those who inspire me as I inspire them. Those who believe in me as I believe in them… Those people who care about their friends just as I will care about them.
At the end of the day though folks, I am me. Nothing less, nothing more… Just me. I’m just another person out there struggling to overcome my past, survive, move on, and make the best out of my crazy, fucked up, insane life…
