A Bit About Me - Rewrite

She/her, bi/queer, cis white Celtic American (there's a story behind that)

There's three things there's nearly always time for in my book; sass, sparkle, and smellin' roses. Sometimes this gets me into trouble. Ha!

I'm rewriting this because, well, weird formatting issues with the original one, and why the hell not? You can always read the original here.

This time, I'm gonna do things in a nice bullet form category fashion, because, why not? And it's easier to read. πŸ‘€ 

πŸŽ“ My formal, nifty cool, accomplishments! πŸŽ“

    • If it's not ugly, if it's not beautiful, what is it? Plain. 
  • I am unapologetically anti-fascist and an intersectional feminist
  • Trans rights are human rights
  • Climate change is real

Note: this list in no particular order, and is not necessarily complete. Basically NO to ableism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, fat phobia, and to colonialist capitalist ideals. Yes to taking care of our planet and all peoples as humanely, compassionately, and kindly as possible; and it's more possible than we think.

My Soul Vow is: I Accept All Things that are for the Preservation, Healing, and Growing of LOVE Eternal; come what may.


  1. Very interesting Lady of Radiant Joy. I have Gemini Sun and Virgo Moon. I also believe there are more than 2 genders. I have a master reiki and some massage experience too but I have nobody to give me massages and I would like to know if you also do massage therapy. I have a BA in Psychology a post degree in counseling for children and adolescents. Right now I studying to become a special Ed teacher. I have come to one of your tarot's courses @ Palo Alto library a couple of years ago may be you don't remember me...

    I love πŸ’“ love tarots but don't do readings that much, I am more of a collector. My favorite deck is the crow tarot and would like to have tea and do readings and I also love to sing and I wish I was singing even more....lately I have become a bit obessed with this K-pop group called BTS..I would not say that I love them but I definitely had to stop for a moment and have a closer look at these guys...nevermind though. I won't go on about them πŸ˜… unless you want me to...

    Have a nice weekend and let me know if you are interested in meeting up sometimes.


    PS. I love cats and dogs but I am a bit phobic about rats😬

    1. Francesca! I DO remember you! I really like BTS too. I love how we have so much in common. Email me! I'm happy to provide massage therapy. ^__^ I hope to see you in class again soon. Much love!
