Superhero name: Kalliope Kickass
Physical age: 43
Mental age: 5 on a bad day, up into the early 20s on a good day, with a very occasional surge forward into 101+. The exception to my general immaturity is work. I've always been around 55 when I work, even in my teens.
Hobbies: Writing (sci-fi/future dystopia), (very) amateur photography, arts and crafts, martial arts, running, obstacle races, hiking, learning to snowboard, HitRECord, gardening, attempting to break the laws of physics
Describe yourself in 5 words or less: Eccentric, introverted, tolerant, creative, genius/idiot (this can go either way depending on the topic or activity – I have a very uneven profile of abilities).
Random quote: "Life is a comedy to those who think; a tragedy to those who feel" – Horace Walpole
Fears: I have a random assortment of weird ones that come and go. A recent one was the fear that a version of myself in a parallel universe might be doing terrible things like starting genocides or setting puppies on fire (multiverse theory suggests that everything that can be done or happen may do so one of the existing universes). Another is the fear that I (and everyone else) have no real continuous identity because memory is fallible and cells in the body die and are replaced regularly, essentially creating a new person. I also fear being in a situation where someone requires defending or rescuing and being unable save them. And clowns creep me out as well.
Likes: Reading and writing (especially scifi/future dystopia), animals, sunshine, chocolate, fresh produce...
Compile a relationship's worst moments and you have a cautionary tale of abuse.
Compile its best, and you have a tale of what it means to be in love.
I may not be very smart, or pretty, or thin, or rich, or talented, or interesting...or funny, or sexy, or desirable, or healthy, or happy
...but at least I'm alive.
I know it's a bit cliché,
But seize the day!
Into your passing days.
When we are gone,
Memories and Legacies
