There are beauties of character which, like the night-blooming cereus, are closed against the glare and turbulence of everyday life, and bloom only in shade and solitude, and beneath the quiet stars. - Henry Tuckerman
I will begin by stating that this profile is not my first and only profile, but that this profile will likely go through changes as I see fit. My real name, though not important, is defined as being warm. Our names are only a word we are legally specified by and after all, words only have meaning because people gave them meaning. I'd much rather be defined by how I live my life. Throughout most of my life people have always called me an "old soul". I suppose in many ways that description is apropos and my ways can be attributed to several things just as the ways of anyone else can be attributed to many things. I'm an all-around eclectic individual. This makes describing myself rather difficult at times. I don't subscribe to any sub-culture...I simply am.
Overall, I'm a compassionate and generous person with a mile wide mischievous streak. I can be extremely stubborn and I take pride in everything I do if I deem it important enough...certain frivolous things in life just aren't worth losing any sleep over. To a great extent, I value my privacy. Some people are open books; I'm only an open book with a selective few. I've always tried to find my own way through life. The people I've known and the experiences I've had have impacted me as they do everyone and I reflect on such events for guidance.
Love. It's a concept so abstract that if you were to ask one hundred different people to define it, you'd probably get one hundred different answers. It's not a tangible thing, and it can be either a gift or a curse. At its best, it can be union full of mutual compassion, nurturing, trust and respect. At its worst, it can feel as though someone is slowly dissecting you with a butcher knife.
Beauty. Ah, yes. One of the things I enjoy about my alternate profile is the lack of awkward messages from strangers praising me for my looks (silly rabbits). Beauty cannot be observed with the naked eye. True beauty is not based on allure or glamour, but it lies within the soul and spirit. I find it rather impossible to think of someone as attractive without knowing anything about them, and I have little regard for those who pay such a compliment before knowing anything about me. External beauty is shallow and will fade with the sands of time. A beautiful soul and mind are eternal.
Now in case you're wondering who I am:
I'm a lover, but I'll fight for what I love.
I'm strong, yet I have my weaknesses.
I care for some, but trust few.
I have a wide variety of interests including psychology, philosophy, history, music and art; I enjoy learning about different cultures and religions, and I love animals. Though I have a college education, I’ll be one of the first people to tell you that the most valuable lessons in life cannot be taught or learned within the box of a classroom. I despise injustice, unwarranted cruelty and harassment, arrogance, pretentiousness, and just about anything less than genuine.
I’ve always tried to be as genuine and sincere as possible. Granted, this has often come at a cost, and has been known to get me into trouble. Nonetheless, it’s part of who I am, and over time I’ve learned the importance of not changing for anyone but myself.
I want a red dress.
I want it flimsy and cheap,
I want it too tight, I want to wear it
Until someone tears it off me.
I want it sleeveless and backless,
This dress, so no one has to guess
What’s underneath. I want to walk down
The street past Thrifty’s and the hardware store
With all those keys glittering in the window,
Past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old
Donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers
Slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly,
Hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders.
I want to walk like I’m the only
Woman on earth and I can have my pick.
I want that red dress bad.
I want it to confirm
Your worst fears about me,
To show you how little I care about you
Or anything except what
I want. When I find it, I’ll pull that garment
From its hanger like I’m choosing a body
To carry me into this world, through
The birth-cries and the love-cries too,
And I’ll wear it like bones, like skin,
It’ll be the goddamned
Dress they bury me in.
Sometimes, I unintentionally become a bit of an enigma. I'm a multi-faceted person and often times certain aspects of my personality, ideas, actions can be contradictory. I consider this to be one of my less attractive qualities. I consider some of my better qualities to be my loyalty, inner strength, and intuition. I've always seemed to be very intuitive and capable of figuring out people's motives and unspoken needs easily; usually when I look at a person, I look through them. When it comes to personality, there are days when I’m rather eccentric, but also days in which I’m more quiet and reserved. I have a tendency to get lost in my mind and daydream quite a bit. I’m loyal to a fault, stubborn, and brutally honest with those I care about; my closest friends will tell me in a heartbeat that I’m a bitch, but they know that I love them and that I have no qualms about taking a bullet for them if need be.
I hope to never stop growing as a person; I've always loved a challenge and will always take every breath for what it's worth until I'm no longer breathing. I want to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be, and know that when I pass on that I accomplished everything I wanted to in life.
When it comes to associating with people, I may not associate with many, but the people in my life have substance. I have a lot of respect for those who have triumphed in the face of adversity; I find them to be beautiful people. There is something about the wisdom and resilience of these people that I can’t help but admire, and I’m more drawn to them than those that I consider to be the “plastic” types. I believe you can best judge a person’s character by what they do when no one is watching, how they act under pressure, and by the people they choose to associate with; one of the most accurate tests of human strength lies within a person’s ability to admit when they’re wrong.
In closing, rate what you will. I may or may not rate you back, but I've been around here much too long to really care about ratings...before ratings affected levels, when coven induction occurred at level five, and before kismets, honor, webcams and mentorships.
Feel free to stop by anytime and send me a message; I’ll do my best to respond as long as you’re not disrespectful or shady. If you add me, let me know so that I have the opportunity to add you as well.
