It's a phrase i use to describe myself quite often. Contrary to popular belief, I do not use that phrase to indicate what I feel about my personal appearance. (which I believe is "average.") Nay, it is used to suggest that while I do have faults and flaws within my personality - that it is those flaws that makes me unique; an individual. And therein, lies my "beauty."
I am an artist and a photographer - with my creations displayed on my website as well as the most recent stuff going right here in this journal. I have been drawing off and on for the past six years - and have yet to feel that I am "good" at it. Photography, however - is entirely different. I've been behind my camera for perhaps 8 months now, and it is something I feel that I have a real talent in. I'd love to continue further into the field, although at this stage it is simply a dream.
I am a bit of an introvert and quite the loner. I do not do well in crowds, as I feel that most "people" are rude and uncouth. I am one of manners, and I prefer to surround myself with like individuals. *wry grin* Unfortunately, that is what tends to push me toward my "loner" status. However, when I find myself comfortable with a person I have a lot to offer. I am creative and intelligent and adore a good conversation.
I have one -very serious- pet peeve. Netspeak. I cannot stand it. I won't tolerate it. If you contact me and use it, you will very likely get ignored. It is lazy and a bastardization of the English language. Grow up and spell your words out properly and use proper grammar.
This is not my personal journal. I do not add friends to this journal - i reserve it specifically for my art and the communities i am a part of. Please don't get all huffy if you don't get added in return. If i feel we have something in common, it's possible you'll be added via my "official" journal.
