|disillusioned in one sentence:||I thrive on the unexpected; I strive for the unusual.|
|This here site is mine. I built it. Bare-handed style. I used to have a different bio up here, but I rewrote one for MySpace and decided I liked that one better. So now you have this...
Onward with the old, dry and drab explanation of me. Seriously, trying to convey all of my curious personality traits in a "profile" is completely nonsensical. Nonsense! You'll have to actually talk to me to get any deeper. Your call, really...)
|Where is disillusioned headed,
What is disillusioned doing?
|Into adulthood, trying to discover the person I truly want to be... and the person I truly want to be with...|
|Motto:||If their thoughts wander in my direction, even once, then I've done my job.|
|Turn Ons:||Good music, contentment, Italian food, the simple pleasures of life- smiling, true happiness, the knowledge that someone out there truly loves you, and isn't obligated to... Quiet, moonlit walks on the beach... Cold thunderstorms and hot cocoa... Girls with strawberry blonde colored hair...
So many have taken this literally as more of a "what do I like when looking for a significant other" field; here's my attempt at mine:
The perfect counterpart to me wouldn't be able to be captured in a simple itemized list. Among other qualities, she would have a tremendous, colorful personality, be a bit wild, original, intelligent, affable, a good conversationalist, artistic in one form or another, a lover of music, caring, kind, compassionate, sweet, loving, and just someone who would make me smile with every second spent around her, and who would cause me to feel "that" feeling in my stomach when I was around her, and as I gazed into her eyes.
Physically, although this isn't as important, I *love* strawberry-blonde hair, deep blue eyes that you can lose yourself in, and an altogether nice figure... someone with a great smile that shows itself often, and someone who doesn't cover up her true beauty with layers upon layers of makeup and the like... (Inquire within...)
|Turn Offs:||Life being driven by things outside of my control, mexican food, pickles, emotional instability, teenage angst, inability to control feelings, feeling helpless, frustration, anger, confusion, lacking the sense of where I'm going, the knowledge of who I am...
Back to the girl thing:
Fishnet stockings, goth or conforming-non-conformist-'look-at-me-I'm-original, no-really'-ware, dark eye shadow in excess, ripped pantyhose, trying to be yourself by being everyone else... (an easier way of phrasing the above) Girls who are outspoken about things they already know only they're bothered by, and overly so, the inability to speak properly, lack of intelligence, having to dumb myself down around someone...
|Hobbies, skills, interests:||Drumming... learning guitar... singing... writing short stories, poetry, articles, satire, humor, drama, and the like... coding this site... learning PHP or other web stuff... designing graphic stuff... listening to music... spending time with friends... sleeping... enjoying good food... traveling... working on this site... photography (sorta)... movies... reading... corresponding... human interaction... fulfilling curiosity... learning about everything... meeting new people, et cetera...|
