A couple of blogs in and I realise, that I’m a stranger to this part of the internet, From what you’ve been able to deduct so far, I’m a wannabe writer with a really odd Tim Burton fetish…
I assure you there’s more to me then that.
So here’s a little bit of a “get to know me” post.
My name is Lorryhn, (pronounced Lauren) Most people call me Lory. This is not my birth name, but it’s the only one I answer to, unless you’re my mother. (Hi Mum)
I’m a single mum of 2 beautiful girls, Kardia (7) and Savanah (4). They provide the entertainment and snuggles portion of my life. They are epic kids, both with very different personalities and characters. Which leads to some awesome clashing in our little house.
Myself, if I had to be classified in one word? Eclectic. I’m a little bit of a lot of things, mostly though, I’m a big geek. I love all things Science fiction, I love Anime, Manga, I’m a pop culture devourer, I’m often found on Reddit, Imgur, 9gag, Tumblr doing my part to bridge the divide between them all.
this song sums me up relatively well
Don’t get me wrong though, there’s a lot more to me then a cos-playing, gaming, manga reading, nerd.
I’m a “feminist” in the true sense of the word, I don’t like that it seems feminism and fem-nazi seem so interchangeable these days, so to clarify, I’m a equal rights activist. Male, female, yet to decide, I don’t care, you’re human and you deserve to be treated like all the other humans out there, regardless, of sex, race, colour, creed, or who you sleep with or don’t sleep with for that matter.
I am Pan-sexual. I’m attracted to a person, not the sex they identify as and have been with men, women, and a few places in-between. So I’m also involved in more then a few LGBTVQ (etc) communities.
I’m creative, some say artistic, but I feel that word holds to much pressure, so I’ll stick with my word thank you. I love to make things, out of paper, fabric, words, pencils, food. The material doesn’t matter to me to much so long as the outcome works. I of course have the ‘artistic temperament” and have been known to get moody for days if something doesn’t go to my vision. I think it’s only because….
If I care about something, be it a hobby, a cause, a person, an event, a project, a show or movie, a book, anything really. I don’t just like it. I LOVE it, and I obsess over it, often bordering on maniacal.
I still believe that Buffy The Vampire Slayer is the best TV show ever made and that 7 seasons, (aired, not printed) was no where near enough. I have a collection of books and memorabilia that grows constantly.
I always have music going, if the house is silent, I’m clearly not at home or have my earphones in. My playlists are varied, everything from showtunes, to hard rock, metal, techno, pop, country.
I have Frank Sinatra, Metallica, Abney Park and Willie Nelson in the same playlist. I also have youtube playlists filled with parodies, and geeky remixes, original pieces from random internet people.
I love to read,everything I can get my hands on, I don’t enjoy everything I read, but sometimes the bad stuff inspires me to write more then the things I adore do. My favourite authors include, but are not limited to, Nora Roberts, Anne Rice, Mary Higgans Clark, Traci Harding, Veronica Roth, J.K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer (shhhhhh)
But I think my favourite Author of all times is Mr Patrick Rothfuss. If you don’t know him, you should find him, and thank me later.
His currently working through the “King-killer Chronicles” The first book in the series is called ‘Name of the Wind’ and from page three, I had my new favourite Author, stalking Victim and best friend all in one.
You can find him on Twitter (@patrickrothfuss) , Facebook, he has a Blog and Website… Google him too, for other fun stuff.
What else to say about me?
I love cooking, hate cleaning, Disney movies make me cry, Elephants are my favourite animal. I’m sure there’s more and that over time we will get to know each other more, then no more strangers! Yay!
