hi all,  i'm in a good mood right now, for a change, so i thought i'd give this a go.

i'm 22, but i turn 23 on january 18th.  i'll be graduating from college in june with a bach degree in art with an emphasis on painting.  if i ever go back to school i'll get a degree in natual science.  i love science, but i hate the math that is required.  i live on the central coast of california.  back home, in northern cali, my family has lots of wonderful pets, but here i have a part time cat.  she belongs to my landlady.  i live in a little unit built in the back yard of a house in a nice neighborhood, and the kitty likes to hang out here.  probably because i feed her ;).  she's petite, but rotund in the middle, and black with a little white spot on her belly.  she in no way replaces my kitty-boy back home.  he's black and white, and his name is martin.  he's about 11.  i love him sooooooo much it's ridiculous.

i love to go to the movies.  i love to read.  some of my favorite authors are anne tyler, john irving, and barabara kingsolver.  i have a hard time getting my reading done for classes, tho.  i hate writing papers.  i love to paint, and do black and white photography.  lately i've been photographing roadkill, mostly deer, and painting from the photos.  sounds morbid, i know.  i can't explain what draws me to it.  my family and friends just find it weird.  

in the yard, my landlady keeps 2 ducks and 5 hens.  i get fresh eggs whenever i want.  some of the hens like to be pet.  i have a clawfoot bathtub in my bedroom (my whole house consists of 2 rooms) and the shower is out in the yard.  one of the ducks likes to shower with me.  it's nice to be nekkid outdoors, but a little chilly this time of year.

i have few friends.  i'm kind of a loner, but i do need my friends very much.  i'm currently trying to work up the courage to get a therapist.  every day, my friends ask, did you call a therapist today?  i'm taking paxil, which keeps my moods kind of level, but i have no libido, and that bugs me.

i had a wonderful boyfriend for 2 and 1/2 years, but he broke up with me a little over a month ago, and i've been really depressed over that.  we're going to remain friends, which is good because he's been my best friend and i couldn't live without him.  but still, i cry everyday because i miss him.  

i love to hike and do yoga.  i'm 5'5" or so, 125 lbs.  i have shoulder length brown hair that i dye auburn, and dark green eyes.  i absolutely hate when people spell my name with 2 L's.  my favorite musician is tom waits, but i also love tori amos, billie holiday, u2, bjork, madonna, pink floyd, jimi hendrix, santana, the doors, fiona apple, billy joel, greatful dead, george winston, kate wolf, elliott smith, sergio mendez and brazil 66, the chieftains, bob marley, vivaldi, and martyn bennett, just to name a few :).  

i love bath products, and have an obsession with facial moisturizers.  i love candles; i'm i pyromaniac like my dad.  i'm scared to death of the future, and have no idea what i want to do with my life.  i do want to get married someday and have two children.  i can't imagine living anywhere but california, but i'm afraid i may never be able to afford it.  i haven't exactly picked a well-paying proffession as an artist.

i love rain, but i also like sunny days.  i love the beach, especially when i bring a dog or two.  my two favorite gifts this last christmas were an easel and binoculars.  i rarely wear skirts.  i love to wear scarves.  i can be very goofy.  i'm not a neat freak, but i don't like being dirty, or having a dirty house.  i don't kill spiders, i take them outside.  i hate ants with a passion.  i'm ok at keeping plants alive.  i love coffee and tea.  i'm a fan of the teachings of jesus and the buddha, but don't follow any religion.  i'm sensitive.  i try to be good and kind to everyone.  i never want to hurt people.  i love vanilla scented lotions.

ok i'll stop, this is getting ridiculously long.
thanks mistral
*hugs* everyone
hilary

p.s.  IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?
- it depends.  what's in the glass?  is it tasty?

well let me try this, i've never been good at telling who  iam..
im 23 and i live in west virginia in the country beside a  huge forest where i love to go and watch the deer and any otherlittle creatures that are there..
i live with my parents and 5 cats, one is mine though, she is pure white with a blue eye and a green eye she can be weird sometimes her name is little one, we have a hymalayan named booger thats my dad's cat, and spoiled rotten she is, then we have a calico cat named lilly she is a demon, mean mean mean, and my moms favorite he is gray and huge well he looks blue his name is bud but i call him floppy cause when you touch him he just flops on the floor :)
and we have a siamse well half, his name is jonsy and he stays outside and is very old..
and i also have a cat at my aunts, he is orange and fluffy and his name is trolly rolly polly ollie :) named him myself, trolly for short and he loves me and only me!
and i have a dog named treznor he is my baby and a wonderful friend and i cant even find any words to explain how amazing he is.
oh and i cannot forget my guinea pig oliver, he is white with a black ear and a pink ear and a black spot over his eye and one black hair on his back :) he is fun forever.

well i could talk of my animals all day long. guess i can talk about them a little better than myself..
but i'll try me,
i hate winter i jsut found out today i hate sunny winter days brings back bad memories of some sort.
but i love drizzly dark winter days stayed out all day in one the other day. me and my dog tracked some deer and we found them, three of them, they saw my dog moving but my dog had his nose stuck to the ground thats why he never finds anything, but i scared them off by one of those sudden uncontrolable coughs, but it was fun..

i like to grow flowers and vegetables, im still learning though, its only been 2 yrs since i found i loved growing things.. and i do love it...
i love horses well i love all animals, here we go again, lol.

i have a brother he is older than me and we dont talk, he stopped talking to me when i was 12 and my parents put me in a mental institution, guess he thought i was crazy.
i miss him very much, i would love to know who he is now. he comes home to visit every week well he just lives up the road, but he is married and they have a little girl..
and sometimes i cry when i think of how much i miss my big brother..

i dont know what else to say right now, sorry.

I thought this might be fun, so here goes.

As is shown, my screen name is Persphone, my real name is Melissa, though most of my close friends call me Mel, and have since highschool.

I just turned 26 in November. (sometimes my birthday falls on election Tuesday, so that makes for a helluva birthday party - hee hee)

I don't even know how much I weigh.  I try not to weigh myself, and I tell myself that muscle weighs more than fat anyway.;)  I am 5'6" and my haircolor changes with my mood most of the time, at any given time it can be any color.  (right now, it's black wtih pink streaks until I get bored.)

My favorite color is black, most of my wardrobe is black, and I rarely wear pants.  I usually wear long skirts.  I own one pair of blue jeans, and I never wear them unless I have a sloppy job to do or I absolutely have nothing else to wear.  I own one sweatshirt which I have becuse it is from my highschool and I kept it for sentimental reasons.  I can't remember ever owning a pair of sweatpants.

I'm married.  Actually my anniversary (first) is coming up January 21.  We eloped for our wedding and caused quite a stir doing that.  It was fun.:)

I'm currently in college. I'm an English major.  I don't work, just study and (try to) get good grades.

I love to read, I LOVE to play the piano, flute and guitar and any other musical instrument I can manage to gain acces to, at least to learn...I lift wieghts and excersise when I am motivated enough.  I like to write when my creativity allows - which doesn't seem to be too often these days.  I like to learn all kinds of new things.  I'm on the Internet a lot for this purpose.

I have two cats and a rat as pets.  My cat Scout is a female, she is black and white; my cat Nicodemus is male, he is black.  He is FAT because he loves to eat.  
I just got a rat (male) named Templeton.  (My husband has a male rat named Mooka as well.)  All my pets are named after literary characters of some sort.

My favorite musical artist is (by far) Tori Amos.  She's one of my personal heroes.  My musical taste is eclectic, it encompasses almost all kinds except Country-Western.  I despise Country-Western, and I don't even consider it real music.  I would sooner listen to POLKA.

One thing I am most proud of is: I can change the oil in my car by myself, as well as diagnose (and fix) minor car problems.  I never do it, of course (that's what I keep a husband around for) but I like the fact that I can be self-sufficient in that area.

That's me in a nutshell.

Peace,

persephone

Just cutting and pasting this info from when it was under my old  nick Rachel Pike:

Hi people

I am a (sometimes weary but always grateful) warrior woman with a history of chronic physical and sexual abuse. But does it define me in entirety? No.
Ummm.....let's see
Birthdate: 3/9/66....soon to be 35
I am about 5"7, I have very long black hair that I like to imagine gives me a very "Xena" look. I spent big money on dyes to banish the ever multiplying grey hairs; "grow old gracefully" is not in my lexicography. My eyes are big and dark brown, I think they're my best feature.
Don't know how much I weigh, but I haven't got a super model's body--don't care though, I like my curves and after five wonderful children, I think my body has done a superb job and can be whatever shape it wants.
My husband has no complaints whatsoever and neither have the occasional heads I still manage to turn.

I'm crazy about books and music. Reading about mythology makes me dizzy with delight. My favourite classical novel is "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"--unparalelled beauty! I love Toni Morrisson, John Irving, Patrick McCabe, Roddy Doyle......shouldn't have started this; all these wonderful authors are jockeying for a mention....and I still get the same pleasure from "Anne of Green Gables" as I did when I was eight. Love Shakespeare, too.
Wildly schizophrenic musical tastes veer from Vivaldi to Nirvana--Enya, the Pogues, World Music (love music of other cultures!) ABBA (guilty pleasure--they're fun) I really have got a bit of everything.
I love my Celtic and Danish heritage.
I think my greatest passion is fighting for social justice, be that women and rape or dictators and minorities. I work for refugees, and I've come to know and love some amazing
people.
I am an eloquent speaker and writer. I am usually kind, but sometimes my passionate nature means that I run off at the mouth too quickly and need to say sorry later.

I struggle with confidence. I am quick to anger and I can have a foul mouth. I get especially ugly when  my motives are bashed without a fair go. I dislike arrogance and deliberate malice. Can't stand people who twaddle on ignorantly about things they've got no idea about and expect it to be taken as gospel. Love people with the humility to say "I don't know". Loathe cooking.

Christina Noble is one of my greatest inspirations (Bridge Across my Sorrows"; "Mama Tina"--what a person can do out of an appalling history--can't even think of this lady without being called to be a better person).
I love the Dalai Lama--I base my spirituality on what he calls the "Bhoddisatva Ideal"--The practice of compassion with wisdom to release all beings from suffering. Having said that, though, it is an ideal only and I fall down frequently.
I need space; the size of my family means I don't often get as much as I would like. I am trained in social work, but I don't actually work in a paid sense. My babies keep me very busy now (Finn, 3, and Suzy, 1.+ 3 teenagers which are more demanding than babies sometimes.)A pet soapbox of mine is the refusal of society to see mothering as "real" work.
I am writing a book about women who have been sexually assaulted by ex/sexual intimates because of society's refusal to see it as "real" rape.
I'm an appalling housekeeper; used to be very task-focused but now find I have more interesting things to do than make beds. I don't like conservative clothing, you'll never see me in buff or grey. I like peasant blouses, bright gypsy skirts, jeans...will only force myself into a suit and pumps if necessary, like, say, a funeral.

I love people; pink is my favourite colour and I am a bit of a cry-baby; my feelings can be easily chafed. I love to laugh and I should do it oftener. I love off-colour jokes, bellydancing, yummy food and booze, especially Guinness.

I am bits of auntie, witch, little girl, utter bitch, crusty old bordello madam and angel.

My latest love is Pandora's aquarium and some of the terrific souls it's been my fortune to connect with.

And as you can see I also like going on about myself.

It's been interesting to learn about you all and you're right, Mistral, fun.

Love to those who haven't fallen asleep yet.

Louise,

I'm going to do it AGAIN because I have a new name, I can, and it was fun the first time!

Hi!

I'm 5'5" and a FULL 1/2.  I get very bitter because I am just dumb old medium sized!

I smoke like a chimney and like to have a glass or two of merlot, with dear old Jackie.  It makes us very charming, polite and attractive to everyone who sees us, as long as they, too have had a glass of merlot.  Otherwise, well just ask Rain or Louise who have both suffered through us.

I'm a teacher.  I live with my boyfriend and our dog in a cute little house.  It's never clean and when it is it will soon be dirty.

I wear Birkenstocks.  I have two tattoos, but I only like one, so I'm only going to tell you about that one.  It's a bear's claw on my heel and it symbolizes strength.  Jackie went with me to get it, and thought I was a baby about it, but I haven't seen her get one yet.

I have a kitchen appliance fetish.  I love to collect them and sometimes I am fascinated by refrigerators, but only certain kinds.

I love to read, sometimes mind candy and sometimes serious stuff.  I like to write, but sometimes it's a really big effort.  I fancy myself a gardener, but I usually kill plants.

Cheese is my favorite food.  Or is it chocolate? I love food, though and cook when I get a chance, which is usually when friends come over, which is usually the only time my house even resembles clean.

And since I'm up so #### late, I think I'm going to follow Lis and Kellie's example and get me a prescription for Ambien.

Hugs,

Jes

I am bored out of my mind right now so figured that I would do this to kill some time.  :-)

My name is Jen and absolutly abhor being called "Jenny" or "Jennifer" - very few people can get away with that.  ;-)

I'm 5'2" and a whole QUARTER.  :-)  Usually I pull off looking at least 5'5" cuz at work I wear 3" heels, so people are always surprised if I'm wearing flats.

My hair started out blonde when I was a kid...then turned more brownish, then turned red when I started dying it 2 years ago.

I live in the US in Virginia right outside of Washington D.C..  For some reason people seem to think that because I live in Virginia I lived on a farm and stuff...nope!  Farms around where I live (suburbs/city) are like an attraction the same as a zoo is.

I'm 22 years old and no one can ever guess my correct age.  If people have known me for awhile they usually thing I'm A LOT older because of the way I act and carry myself and give advice, etc.  If someone doesn't know me and just looks at my appearence they usually think I'm A LOT younger than I really am.  I still get carded to see rated "R" movies! :-P

Hmm...what else?  I'm currently living with my parents b/c I can't afford to move out...rent here is starting at 񘈨 a month for a small 1 bedroom...it's ridiculous.  I currently work as a stupid smiling desk monkey at the Nat'l HQ of one of the top 5 cell phone companies.  (If you're looking at buying a cell PM me and I'll tell you what NOT to buy...my cell company SUCKS!)  :-)

I have a wonderful b/f Justin who I have been with for 8 mo. now...he's the best and one day we'll get married.  :-)  He's a composer and a substitute teacher, so he's poor just like me.

I was a U.S. Marine...three years in service before I was medically discharged for rehumatoid arthritis at 18 yrs. old.  I was active 6 mo. before I went to my reserve unit back home.  I had tons of fun there :-)

What I really want to do in life is to write and eventually open up my own Rape Crisis Center somewhere either in this area or in New England somewhere.

I used to do Tae Kwon Do and was a black belt, I would love to still do it but b/c I have arthritis that limits a lot of things.

I love reading and learning cool new things.  I'm big into psychology and personalities and stuff and could talk for hours about it.  I always refer to myself as a nerd :-) but I just like learning new stuff so I can help out other people and keep up with my disgustingly brilliant boyfriend.  :-)

I love watching hockey, the Washington Caps are my team - they suck most of the time but I have loved them for 7-8 yrs. now and can't stop.  :-)  One of these days we'll win the Stanley Cup.  :-)

Hmmm...can't think of anything right now - and gotta run and do some "work."  :-)

hugs to all,

Jen

Who am I?  It's easy to say who I'm not.  I'm no longer a victim, but I am a survivor.  But that doesn't answer who I am.  I'm a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a friend.  I'm not my past any more than I'm my future.  I'm the me I am now.  And who's that?  My name is Kelly and I'm 25 years old.  I'm a Scorpio, but don't believe everything you hear about us.  I'm 5'8" and weight is not going to be mentioned!  I have green eyes and red hair and am of Irish decent (as if you couldn't guess!).  I was born in Huntington (Long Island) NY but was relocated to Maryland (just outside of Annapolis) when I was quite young.  I've been writing since I was seven, and that's what I want to do with my life.  I'm an avid reader, devouring four to five books a week.  A self-proclaimed nerd, I prefer watching the Discovery Channel, the Learning Channel, the Health Channel and the History Channel (as well as MSNBC) over regular television.  But I'm not what you'd expect.  Though I'm often outspoken, I'm really shy.  I'm told I have a great sense of humor and that I'm compassionate.  I love making people laugh and there's nothing I enjoy more than helping people out.  I have three tattooes, all of which I LOVE!  My frist one (gotten back in Mayter a friend died) is a butterfly flying to a chinse symbol that means "Live for today."  Butterflies symbolize freedom to me, so that means I'm granting myself the permission to live my life.  That one is on my right calf.  My next tattoo (gotten in August) is my favorite.  It's the egyptian eye of horace (I love anything egyptian, anything pretaining to myth), but instead of an eyeball in the center, it's the world.  the eye of horace symbolizes protection, and with the world, to me it means looking over all mankind.  That's on my right shoulder.  My third tat, gotten after 9/11, is another chinese symbol (this time on my left leg) and it says HOPE.  I love my tatts.  I hate pain because it's all I know.  I have fibromalgia (however you spell it) as well as many other problems. Yet getting those tats gave me so much self esteem.  It's stupid I know, but they really helped.  I am so glad I got them.  I'm going to get a fourth (the tattooed lady, LOL).  It's going to be the RENT symbol from the broadway show.  That show is very important in my life and I'm going to get it over my heart.  Gay I know...but who cares. Its my body and my body is my temple.  I'll worship it anyway I want!!!!

As you can guess, music is my life.  Broadway is heaven.  I live and breathe music and writing.  I love hanging with friends but am just as happy to stay alone.

Who am I?  I am me, and I offer no apologies.  If you don't like me, fine.  That's how I live.  that's how I survive.  True, I am hurt by those who do dislike me, but that doesn't rule my life :)

Don't pressure me to choose.  

17.DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST?

((Everyone)) this is such an awesome thread... Lemme see what I can tell you about me...

My born name is Amanda Jane Whitesel- my middle "Jane" is a family name passed down through the generations.  Though I think it's a funny name to pass down.  I don't usually like going by my name, I'm not used to hearing it much.  Most people have nicknames for me.

I am 21, a september baby.  The baby of the family.  My mom and dad have been married for almost 30 years now.  And I have one older brother (whose 24) and an older step sister (who would be 31) but she doesn't have anything to do with the family anymore.  My brother has a daughter, whose 3 1/2.  She's adorable.  I am married to a wonderful, adoring man whose the light of my life, and he has an adorable son, Lucas, who I call my own.  My family is very supportive as well.

I'm 5'11''&3/4, I weigh about 140 lbs (when I eat right), and was born with blonde hair though I dyed it red, and have blue grey eyes that change with the weather.  I'm also diabetic, and have a disease called Celiac Sprue (allergic to gluten).  Which makes eatting difficult.  

I love sushi, fruits, and veggies. I adore animals, and plan to have a farm one day.  My favorite animal is the Manatee, which my husband adopted one in florida for me before we got married.  (her name's Amanda as well, and they featured her on PBS reading rainbow! I freaked out when I saw it! lol)  We own 5 gold fish that we haven't named yet, and my parents are taking care of my two cats till we move outta the apt.- Tiffany a long haired all white cat, and Penelope a long haired multi colored calico.  Both I adore.  

I love to write, paint, talk, read, do photography, giggle, and make new friends.  Im outgoing when my selfesteem is high.  I was homeschool most of my childhood, which helped to give me a new respect for people of all ages and races.  My parents are amazing teachers, and I learned a lot about real life from homeschooling.

I love to travel, and have been all over PA, as well as the east coast. And as far north as canada.  I didn't see the ocean until I was 17.  Which was one of the most amazing days of my life.  Now I can't go a summer without going to the ocean, neither can my parents.  We even got my dad into a pair of shorts (which he never did till he turned 49 just an fyi lol)  

I love my family.  I love my religion.  I love my friends.  I love to be loving and caring.  I hate anger, and yelling.  And wish life was easier.  I love dressing up and going to fancy functions, I love dressing down and playing in the mud, and going horse back riding.  I love doing it all and being it all.  I adore all kinds of music, from rock, to rap, to r&b, to opera, to jazz, to classical, to alternitive, to hard rock, to oldies, to everything and anything- all of it.  Music is more then music, it sets the tone for moments in our lives.  

I love life.  Above all, I've learned that the bad has taught me to appriciate the good.  And I guess that makes it all worth while.

Can't believe I never did this.  

Oh well here we go.  I'm 28 and will be going back to school in the fall so my boring job with the mean boss doesn't matter anymore :)

I live in NoVA (Northern Virginia) currently with my folks...which is at least cheap.

I have one dog...the cutest little Jack Russell ever.  Her name is Skokey.

In my free time I read (books have always been my escape)  I'll read anything currently I'm reading "The River King" by Alice Hoffman (one of my favorite writers)  and the Dahmapadra (spelling?)  I know I'm weird and I kind of like it that way.  I have the Koran, Bible, Book of Morman, Dahmapadra, Freud's writings on relgion, Hume's dialogs, and the Annalects of Confucious all on the same shelf...what can I say the stuff fasicnates me *shrug*

I also like to paint...water colors are my paints of choice.  I write to a lot.  Mostly poetry, some people have told me it's pretty good, and I did get an A in creative writing/poetry course in college...but I don't know.  I don't write it for others anyway...it's about me.

I like to be outside.  Something peaceful about not haveing walls around you.  I love the way a horse farm smells.  The earthy, sweet, smell of hay, manuore, and animals.

That's enough for now.

Catch up with all y'all latter,
NiNi
