These are the facts.

I was born in New Hampshire, moved to Georgia before my first birthday, and to the city of Chicago before my sixth.

I am allergic to pot and honey.

I don't smoke, and I don't drink.

I grew up in Lincoln Park, and got picked on by all the private school kids and rebelled by trying to be the exact opposite of them; I am honest, friendly, and I don't pick on people smaller than me.

I have had a green mohawk, shaved my head, and had all sorts of bizarre and horrible haircuts in my life.

I got my nose broken in a mosh pit at the fireside bowl when I was 13.

In high school, I was miserable, all four years.

I might have a chemical addiction to nail polish and tattoo ink.

I got my first tattoos on my 18th birthday.

I have 18 tattoos at this moment.

I have 2 cats, Pouncer and Poppie, and I have a tattoo of my cat that died, Pearl.

I like to read, and watch movies.

I hosted a teen open mic for a number of years in high school, it was my singular salvation. Later I would sing in it, with my one-man-band The Alphabet. At open mic, I would dance alone until other people stopped caring about what people thought and would join me.

I am not into piercings, really. I like really weird ones. I had a dermal anchor in my chest for almost a full year, and a transverse lobe piercing for about 6 months.

I don't claim to be an expert on anything.

I have travelled some, and will likely travel a lot more.

I don't like New York.

I am moving to Seattle.

I mostly listen to 90's grunge, pop, and post-grunge alternative music, and a little bit of bluegrass and country and a lot of 80's new wave.

My favorite song this week:



I love Abraham Lincoln, and american history.

I am not a feminist, because I think the movement is no longer necessary, we got the rights.

I am an optimist, and passifist, but I fight like hell for things I believe in.

I cry a lot.

I laugh even more.

I try not to dwell.

I have to go to work.
