Seventeen, platonic, anal-retentive, gilded, indecisive, sporadic, fickle, and mildly pessimistic despite my best efforts. Artist, photographer, writer, insomniac, packrat, bookworm, mythology buff, thespian, and a lover of words. I'm Scots-Irish with a dash of Cherokee, and quite proud of both. I prefer simplicity, but that's easier said than done. Same old song and dance, really. But thatâ€™s what you get when youâ€™re different, like everyone else.
