I'm in my second year, trying to get a Bachelor's degree from Visual Arts and English Language and Literature (it's a teacher programme). I work part-time at a theatre in the foyer. My blog is mostly about my everyday life, sometimes adding photos and my art... I'm owned by my dog, Dasha - she's a yorkshire terrier. I live with my mum and younger sister, dad died when I was 12 years old and there was no male element in my life until two years ago. I don't feel comfortable around the opposite sex. I want to do so many things in my life I'm left having no idea what I want to be. So I'm studying, hoping to figure it out soon. I'm very creative - I draw, paint, sew, and write. But I don't share my writings on LJ, if I share it at all. I'm a bibliophile and a history geek. My favourite eras are Middle Ages, Victorian, and Edwardian. I love everything Victorian and Art Nouveau (mainly Gustav Klimt and Alphonse Mucha). Most people would probably consider me boring, but I just don't need people around me to enjoy life - an ideal Friday night consists of classical music playing in the background, lots of tea, a good book, and Dasha. And chocolate! I like to think I'm a polite person, but when I'm very angry I curse like no other (and I can curse in 6 languages, mind you). Also I suffer from cardiac arrhythmia - my heart likes to remind me every once in a while, but otherwise I don't talk about it. Oh, and I'm a Christian - not that it matters, just a fair warning for those who hate religion (not that you'd guess from my journal, but meh).

Don't add me if: you have children, you are suicidal most of the time, all you talk about it sex and drugs
