[ so since its munday and while i work on asks im gonna share shit about myself because i can and im not THAT boring okay.
i am benny, but people call me dams as a nickname. im 15, and i grew up in veracruz mexico. im a self taught artist. my birthday is dec 7. i am 2 spirited ! my family was very traditional[ church on sunday, you must have long hair, you cannot open your legs just the SLIGHTEST if you were wearing a dress or skirt or my abuela would kick you in the crotch, youd have to face being hit with a thin stick that was like a whip or a flip flop if you did something wrong, etc ], as i would sell street food like elotes, make home made brooms out of dry plants, and we raised our food and slaughtered them. i was also like. really poor lmao. what was even clean water am i right
we built our house, it was small, all cement, and we didnt have windows and doors so they were just. open gaps.
anyways, i am indigenous, native, and other mix ! i am a practicing witch, and i really want to go into native healing. once i go to mexico i plan on learning from my uncle and making petitions to some deities. anyways, my spirit animal is the black jaguar, and i am currently planning on building altars for it. i am scared of certain waters because of ahuizotl oops, and i love telling traditional stories to children, especially those involving my ancestors beliefs. i didnt have friends until i moved to the us because i was so busy exploring and spending time with animals ! except i had a bad habit of messing with tarantulas and scorpions. i love babysitting, and i also have 15 animals currently. :-)
i have 6 piercings because im a fuckin baby [ by that i mean im too lazy to go anywhere dude if the piercers could come to me shit would get lit ] okok, a set of spiderbites, stretched standard lobes [ i wear hoops through the tunnels or just wear stone plugs ] and i have upper lobe piercings lmao. i wear a lot of traditional jewelry and i always have my nails painted because im fucking shit.
my dad thinks medicine is bullshit and herbs are the way to go, so i kinda. listen to him. im professionally diagnosed as mentally ill and i have a shitty immune system. i have adhd and clinical depression which is bluh, but i laugh at myself a lot because of it.
i fought snakes with a stick before because they would have startled my abuelas cattle.
i fell into water on accident trying to jump across to get onto another rock and i landed right next to a snake.
my uncle was said to have killed a donkey, ate the baby, and has attacked our teacher so we werent allowed to go home and eat. he also carried a machete around with him 24/7.
i know how to make dolls out of corn husks and plain material.
i promise im not as lame as i come off as im ]
