Greedy! But seeing as how I’m procrastinating right now…
1. the meaning behind my url
crush (something, typically paper or cloth) so that it becomes creased and wrinkled.
(of vegetation, especially grass) growing luxuriantly.
“lush greenery and cultivated fields”
So something that is extremely pleasing to the senses but a little bit creased and therefore it takes a bit more work than is usual to discern that.
2. a picture of me
3. tattoos i have
I have a rose on my chest, my sisters names on the inside of my elbows, tiny hearts on the back of my wrists, a Bleach tattoo on my forearm, one of Rei’s butterflies from her comic on my ankle and a string of letters and numbers inside my right ear.
4. last time i cried and why
Yesterday, because I was thinking through something I wanted to write and it made me so sad that I started to cry. This happens to me a lot, which is absurd quite frankly.
5. piercings i have
Ear lobes which I’m working on stretching (currently at 2mm so babies right now), nose, septum, VCH. I have had pretty much everything pierced before but I’ve retired a lot of piercings over the years.
6. favorite band
A jpop group called NEWS. Good luck googling them!
7. biggest turn off(s)
Bodily functions or any discussion about them. I prefer to pretend that they just don’t happen so please can we ignore them altogether?
8. top 5 (insert subject)
You didn’t give me a subject!
9. tattoos i want
I’m planning on getting an open book on my forearm that reads “erase old sins with new virtues” in the new year. I also want a compass done. In the future I’d like a tattoo on my thigh in Gallifreyan that reads “traveller” or “wanderer” or something like that. I’ve got vague plans for others but nothing concrete yet.
10. biggest turn on(s)
Sense of humour is my biggest one. Someone who can laugh at the same dorky things that I find funny, and doesn’t happen to think that things I find appalling are hilarious. Shared fandoms is also a big plus!
12. ideas of a perfect date
Meeting up somewhere and going for a walk, and randomly doing things that take your fancy along the way. Like “oooh, the history museum has a skating rink for christmas - let’s have a go!” And then afterwards going for some food somewhere and chatting about the things you did.
13. life goal(s)
Contentment and happiness. Right now I want to work hard at my degree, do fairly decently at my job and travel a lot. In the future I want a stable home and a committed relationship, while still travelling a lot.
14. piercings i want
Been thinking about this a lot recently. I used to have vertical lip piercings and I want to get it redone, but oral piercings never last with me. I’ve had numerous over the years and they just don’t take. I think I should take the hint. I’m going to get a second pair of holes in my ear soonish so that I can wear fashion earrings that I can’t wear in my lobes due to the stretching. In the distant future I’d also like another genital piercing but that will have to wait for the moment.
15. relationship status
Engaged, to you! ;) Sadly single at the moment.
16. favorite movie
No definitive favourite, but I’m going to go ahead and say Avengers because it’s a good one and changed my life. :)
Oh wait, the 8UPPERS movie is definitely near the top of my list.
17. a fact about my life
I have legally changed my name twice in my life as an adult and did it unofficially as a minor a few times. The longest period of my life that I’ve had the same name was nine years and that was between the first time I changed it as an adult to the second time I did. I’m contemplating changing it a third time, but it won’t be for another seven years at least because I’m not paying for a new passport.
Eyes. I can’t look at close up photos of them, watch anything icky with them in films (even if they’re animated), watch people rub theirs or anything. This limits my life SO MUCH. Nearly every film has some kind of eye thing in it. Even kids films. I have to watch films with someone who can tell me when it’s safe to look at the screen. This is especially irksome at the moment because currently a gifset is going round on tumblr when Fury takes off his eyepatch and it makes me want to throw up every time I see it. Eyes are seriously triggering for me.
I’m a lot better now than I used to be, I couldn’t even put make up on until I was way into my twenties. But it’s a very very slow process. I put eyeliner on my waterline for the first time in my entire life literally three weeks ago. And I still can’t watch other people do their make up. I get panic attacks if someone talks about their contact lenses. It’s a fucking nightmare, especially because everyone finds it such a hilarious phobia. “How can you be scared of eyes? You HAVE eyes!” and then think it’s funny to start touching their eyes in front of me. Ugh. I’m actually feeling sick just writing this.
I’m also claustrophobic and scared of heights, but it’s the eye thing that really fucks me up. :(
19. middle name
I do not have one. When I first changed my name at eighteen (see number 17) I got rid of it because I didn’t see the point of middle names. If I change my name again in the future I might add one. I’ll see how I feel at the time.
