Reintroducing Myself…

Who: 36-year-old female. Life part­ner to sam­bear. Moth­er to shad­owkatt. Step­moth­er to real_pochacco and lit­tle­fire­fae.

Descrip­tion: 5′7″ and def­i­nite­ly plus-sized. Extreme­ly pale white skin, hair cur­rent­ly red thanks to the pow­er of cos­me­tol­ogy, eyes are green and usu­al­ly hid­den behind glasses.

Ori­gins: Hered­i­ty is Scots/Irish/Cherokee and God­dess knows what else. Geo­graph­i­cal­ly I was born in Gads­den, Alaba­ma but I’ve spent most of my life in the sub­urbs of Atlanta, Geor­gia, with a brief sojourn in south­east­ern Geor­gia. I’m appar­ent­ly relat­ed to the entire pop­u­la­tion of Alaba­ma and most of north Georgia.

Where: In the afore­men­tioned suburbs.

Doing What: I’m most­ly The Mom­my right now. I write. I stitch. I sing. I read. I’ve been down to do soft­ware QA and tech­ni­cal writ­ing for a pay­check, among oth­er geeky things. Oh—I’m going back to school in a few months to get an actu­al degree.

Align­ments: Eclec­tic pagan and Uni­tar­i­an Uni­ver­sal­ist with polit­i­cal views that don’t fit in with most oth­er UUs as I’m a libertarian.

Tastes: Hmmm. Things that feel good against my skin. Clean, cold water. Dark choco­late. Lack of clut­ter. Harmony.

Dis­tastes: Loud any­thing. Crowds. Strangers in my space. Melo­dra­ma. Liars.

Nig­gling lit­tle details: INFP some­times, ISTJ last time I took a Keirsey test—the intro­vert part stays con­stant, late­ly. Scor­pio with Tau­rus ris­ing in West­ern astrol­o­gy, Fire Horse in Chi­nese astrol­o­gy. Lyric/dramatic sopra­no accord­ing to my long-ago voice teacher.

Life­long bêtes noire: Want­i­ng to do too so many things that I find it hard to get any of them fin­ished. Recov­ery stuff—I suf­fer from chron­ic major depres­sion and have PTSD with some mild OCD com­po­nents. The ori­gin of those is child­hood sex­u­al abuse.

Oth­er nui­sances: I have fibromyal­gia, arthri­tis and PCOS. I seem to be aller­gic to most of the world’s con­tents (dust, mold, mildew, var­i­ous pol­lens, etc.). Oh, and then there are the migraines. Ick.

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.
