I have been a member of this site for a little over a month now. I hadn't ventured outside of main page much until today and I found you guys!
I read most of the "what is an alternachick" thread and thought it sounded a lot like me! I have never fit into the norm.. growing up I always felt like the odd one in the group. I was FAR from popular.. was in the band from 7th grade up into college.
My parents didn't agree with my choice of piercings and my lack of picking a hair color and sticking with it.
Now I am an art teacher and it seems to fit well with my personality. I love to draw and paint when I actually have time.
I have a nose ring and 7 piercings in my ears and the school doesn't care.. guess that is what happens when you teach at an "economically disadvantaged" school. As long as your students are passing who cares!
I love anime and reading books about Vampires. Yes I read the Twilight series.. I couldn't help it!
I can't wait until I can dress how I WANT to dress... right now its whatever fits. I don't feel brave enough at this size to take the risks that I want to take. I also want a tattoo on my arm, but only when they are smaller!
So now that I have rambled.. just wanted to say I am happy I found this place!
"Let your freak flag fly!" --- it was from a movie and I find it very fitting for my point in life.
