"Owls are wise. They are careful and patient. Wisdom precludes boldness. That is why owls make poor heroes."
- Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
Feathers floating to the ground,
Gently and without a sound.
I think I would make a poor hero. I'm not brave or daring and I don't like taking risks. I prefer to calculate, once, twice, three times, and only then making a decision. I'd make a poor hero, doubting, second-guessing, never just running and jumping, taking a chance and slaying a dragon, rescuing towns folk, releasing an empire from shadows.
As such, you can call me "Owlish".
I'm 20-something years old. I'm from Australia.
I'm an introvert, a homebody. I love reading, rain, thunder and lightning storms. I'm a big fan of coffee and straight black English tea. I prefer the company of my cats, Mocha and Latte, most of the time. I love solitude, quiet, calm. I'm a poet, a lover of rhyme and rhetoric, prose and pedant. I'm a dreamer, with my head permanently in the clouds, painting vivid worlds, singing of forgotten lands, creating beautiful escapes.
I'm Straight Edge, an atheist, Buddhist, vegan and a humanitarian. I am an animal and human rights activist, feminist, a huge fan of radical self-love, and I am a bit of a fitness nut. I absolutely love yoga, and I swim and jog.
I want to travel all over the world and see rare, special, bizarre things. I mainly want to go to Nepal, Tibet, Pripyat and New Zealand. I want to hike through Milford Sound, various trails in America and see the fjords of Finland. Over the last two years, I've got to do some of these things, with Judgement. We travel to beautiful places, see lovely, breathtaking things.
I'm an avid photographer, hiker and outdoors enthusiast. I love breathing lungfuls of unpolluted air, listening and hearing nothing more than the sigh of wind through trees, birds calling, the crunch of my feet in leaves. I'm in meyelement in the elements, with Judgement beside me, and nary another person to be seen.
I am an enormously big fan of classical music. I love the score for How To Train Your Dragon, I adore Tchaikovsky, Daft Punk and Imagine Dragons. My favourite artists are Claude Monet and Leonid Afremov. I dislike watching television and movies. I don't have the patience to sit still for so long, just doing/watching one thing... unless it is a videogame. I love videogames. My favourite book is "The Name of the Wind". It's astoundingly gorgeous, and the best thing I have ever read.
I've been on VR for over 10 years now. I used to have a ridiculously long profile, possibly one of the longest text-only profiles on VR. I've obviously updated to a newer, sleeker model. If you want anything from me other than genuine conversation, please don’t message me. I will not add you. Don’t ask. Seriously. No. I can’t make it any clearer than that. The coding on my profile was done by myself.
