20 Plus Things About Me…
I’m 32 years old, born October 3rd
I am Married to Norman R. Cole, we got married May 2nd 2009
I graduated in 2001 with a BA in Native Studies from Trent University.
I have a diploma from Centennial College in New Media Design plus a certificate in Art Fundamentals and Digital Desktop Publishing.
I am ChildFree as apposed to being Childless, why ChildFree and not Childless? Simple I am ChildFree because I have chosen not to have children and I don’t feel less of a woman for making that choice (I enjoy being around children, I just do not wish any of my own).
Both Norman and I work from time to time online in a world called Second Life, I create and sell mesh and prim based clothing. SL as it is known is also where we first came to know each other.
I enjoy Photography, have a my own collection of photos I have taken over the years, though only recently have any of them been digital.
I consider myself to be a Artist, I enjoy drawing and painting, as well as working with the electronic medium of photoshop and painter.
I’ve been into web design since 1994, though it was in 1997 that I really got into it as a way to help pay my way through university and for other essentials.
I have worked as a graphic designer and graphic artist since I was about 13 years of age. Mostly doing stuff for my dad when I was younger, and moving on to doing my own freelancing as I got older, this also helped pay for my university education and essentials.
I have two parrots, Spirit Moon he is a Timnish African Grey and Dea-Dea, she is a Senegal
I enjoy listening to various 80s based music, as well as some from the 70s
I also enjoy listening to different types of celtic and native american music
My favorite instruments are the Harp and Native Flute, I also like Drums, Bongos, the Piano and Acoustic Guitar. However, I can only play the bongos and piano.
I have taken opera lessons when I was younger, and was told I was a Soprano, but with maturity would become a Colouraturist. I do still sing, but am no longer in formal training as I was when younger
I use to be into International Ballroom Dancing, and managed to get my Bronze, Silver and Gold Medallions before I gave it up, it wasn’t fun any longer and the problems between me and the instructor where mounting enough that I was not able to continue on with her at that point in time.
I am a type 2 Diabetic, I am on Glumetza, Lantus and Humalog.
I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which is what my obgyn thinks caused me to become a diabetic, which is a common deal for those who have PCOS to become Insulin Resistance, and then slide into being a type 2 (and since I didn’t learn about having PCOS till the end of 2003, I went unchecked for the possibilities of being insulin resistant).
I like my mom also have Porphyria, we both have Acute Intermittent Porphyria (AIP). There is no cure of this condition, just watching what you eat, drink and the medications you are given.
I am Pagan and have been following my own path since I was rather young, I can’t explain it because its just something which I have always dun and since it feels right to do it its never changed.
I am also what is called a Furry, which means I like to draw anthro charters, wear a fursuit (my choice of fursuit is that of a Chinese Crested, where as Norman’s is that of a Husky, so yes I Married a fellow fur). I am NOT into the sexual side of Fur what so ever, it has nothing to do with my enjoyment of being a fur and has no place within my life as a fur.
