I am unapologetically me: artist, punk, geek, lover, sister, daughter, friend. Streetsmart, jaded, conflicted, damaged, inquisitive, curious, strong, hard, angry, loyal, reckless, nomadic, passionate, incorrigible, sentimental, and fierce. I am the product of a haphazard education, a lot of reading, and even more living.

I have a lot of baggage, even more mileage, and more carefully nurtured neuroses than the human mind can comfortably imagine. I refuse to apologize for any of it. Every action I have ever taken, every decision I have ever made, even the bad ones, were my choice and my choice alone. I wouldn't be me if I hadn't lived through it.

I believe that choice and free will are the ultimate human variables. There is always a choice, it's just that sometimes the options you get to choose from a shitty and shittier. I do not believe in victims; I'm of the school that believes that when life kicks you in the balls, you get straight back up and kick back.

You might not like me, and that's OK, because the split between people who like me and people who don't has always been pretty much 50/50.

Apparently I am supposed to point out that my journal features adult content. There, I've pointed it out. The smut is hidden behind cut tags. The political opinions are not. Caveat Lector.

Please feel free to add me. I won't necessarily add you back though. I filter quite heavily even on my friends list: there are only fifteen people who get to read every single post I make... it's nothing personal. Also, please take a minute to say hello and introduce yourself and tell me why you think my journal is worth reading/how you found it, etc. I'm unbearably nosy.
