I don't want the world, I just want your half...
I have now added a link to my nerd side. You can follow the link to see my library online. Can't take the librarian out of the girl :) Even medievalist librarians can be taught. Only one hour and the codes and I can add a background... I have met someone who makes my heart sing....and now we are engaged! A medieval wedding is being planned for sometime this year. A wedding with swords and alcohol, what could be better. Sometimes things can just be wonderful. Currently going to grad school for a masters in Education. I will hopefully be a high school Physics/Earth Science teacher when all is said and done.
What Vampire Clan Do You Belong To?
You aren't sure where you came from. Perhaps your sire did an embrace and run. Or maybe your sire was an outcast himself. Either way, your powers are unique and really don't belong to any clan...or maybe a little from each. Because you of these circumstances, you aren't really sure where you belong. You tend to wander and do a bit of soul searching in your eternal life. Maybe some day...you have a while after all.
So, that clan rather suits me, the eternal wanderer that I am. I have moved 17 times in 15 years to several continents and think I might have finally found a place to stay at least for a while. So how to describe me.... well dark and different come to mind but that pretty much describes everyone here. So more depth: studious, curious, shy yet outgoing (yes I realize the contradiction). Actually the word that pretty much describes me is contradictions. I majored in medieval history and linguistics, mostly dead languages. Focusing on as my adviser puts it the barbarian cultures. He says my degree should have been barbarian studies not medieval studies. I focus mainly on the Celts and the Norse. I love learning languages, but before you assume, no I am actually terrible at languages. Learning them is rather like beating my head into a wall repeatedly, which I am very good at. I was in the military for 8 years, caused more problems, and fit like a star shaped peg in a square hole. Ok enough letting you in for now. Any questions or comments just message me.
This poem has spoken to me for decades so I might as well add it here...
by Edgar Allan Poe
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.
I know everyone does Poe but it was the first thing I read which let me know I was not the only one like me.
Ok so new stuff about me...lets go for the basics now. I love music, just about anything except for country. I love Cruxshadows
Nine Inch Nails
Dead can Dance
and Mozart are just a few bands....
My next goal with this profile is to list more bands but that is an undertaking. I have over 500 cd's, music is a big part of my life. Another big part is reading. I will read just about anything except romance novels. I am currently reading Terry Prachett and several nonfiction books about stone circles and prehistoric Ireland. I am also reading about the black death. My dogs (Shown below) are the loves of my life. I also really like turtles. There is also a special someone that makes me happier with each passing day.
I admire honesty in people. Tell me what you think or feel as long as it is honest. Nothing you can say will hurt my feelings or shock me. I don't believe that you have to be rude to be honest. If you are rude to me I will just ignore you and go about my life. If you rate me under 5 I would appreciate a reason. If you don't want to give me one that's fine, no skin off my back.
I enjoyed studying in Wales a few summers ago, and also in England. I do a variety of LARP's and tabletop games as I find them a great way to destress and be creative. I design jewerly and sell wooden swords and crossbows at ren faires. I am slowly adding to my book collection much to my boyfriends dismay. They fill quite a large area.
Oh and I also have a zombie movie fetish. I love watching them no matter how terrible they are. I have gotten to be a lead zombie in one called "Antebellum". Very low budget but a lot of fun and my character gets her head cut off with a scythe.
I got to fulfill one of my lifetime goals also last summer by visiting England and Ireland. Next goal is Egypt.
One of my favorite places in the UK is Newgrange Megalithic Passage Tomb.
you are the cute but psycho happy bunny. You adorable, but a little out there. It's alright, you might not have it all, but there are worse
The Road not Taken by Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Ok, just one more poem. I don't want to fill my profile with poems but I have really liked this one for years.
Miniver Cheevy, child of scorn,
Grew lean while he assailed the seasons
He wept that he was ever born,
And he had reasons.
Miniver loved the days of old
When swords were bright and steeds were prancing;
The vision of a warrior bold
Would send him dancing.
Miniver sighed for what was not,
And dreamed, and rested from his labors;
He dreamed of Thebes and Camelot,
And Priam's neighbors.
Miniver mourned the ripe renown
That made so many a name so fragrant;
He mourned Romance, now on the town,
And Art, a vagrant.
Miniver loved the Medici,
Albeit he had never seen one;
He would have sinned incessantly
Could he have been one.
Miniver cursed the commonplace
And eyed a khaki suit with loathing:
He missed the medieval grace
Of iron clothing.
Miniver scorned the gold he sought,
But sore annoyed was he without it;
Miniver thought, and thought, and thought,
And thought about it.
Miniver Cheevy, born too late,
Scratched his head and kept on thinking;
Miniver coughed, and called it fate,
And kept on drinking.
-- Edwin Arlington Robinson
