16 years ago today, I brought Boo home from the breeder. I got a second job to save up for him in 1999, and picked him out as a tiny baby. He has moved all over the country with me, and been there when nobody else has. I cannot imagine being closer to any other living being. Hoping that we get really old together

Here’s my … 1. My have sold and gotten me exhibited every time I’ve submitted them anywhere. They tend to press or cross over the boundaries of “safe for work”, and I’m very reticent about posting them for lots of reasons. 2. I have a love/hate with photography, since burning out a few years ago. Kinda getting back into it along with my obsession for history and ephemera as @vintagereveries because I have over 200 vintage dresses to sell, still. 3. In 2011-2012 I did a lot of work in trade for someone with a literal ton of vintage, and had no idea what I was getting myself into. Burned out on that, too. 4. I’m a feminist and optimistic humanist, and am increasingly speaking up. 5. My first job was in a pickle factory. I dropped out of 8th grade but graduated with a 4 year university degree at 23. It’s the biggest compliment that people who casually know me never guess at the crazy dysfunction and poverty that I worked so hard to escape in my early 20s, and I’m still surprised that I can pass as a normal person with Boo on my head 😜 ……..

Tagged and inspired by @parrotsrus … Here’s my … Where to end? Goodness I’m typing on a cell or otherwise this would already be four paragraphs. I never know what to say about myself but I have a zillion random anecdotes. I am 36 and in a perpetual career crisis because I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up and I have a difficult time focusing. I am debating whether not I should get an 8 to 5 job or continue trying until my savings runs out. My birds and this Instagram and Facebook are my escape. It’s kind of amazing that 20 years ago I was whacked out from being overmedicated, in my second full year of accredited college courses at the community college (I was an unconventional drop out, my psychopathic mother couldn’t decide whether there was something wrong with me or whether the system was personally after us). So the past few years since moving in with my boyfriend I’ve been slacking a little bit and getting somewhat of an emotional rest from a pretty damn interesting but roller coaster of a life, that just really began in September of 1996… I’m an open book and tmi blurter when I am typing at a keyboard. I keep others secrets way better than my own. Having Boo since early 2000 has saved me from being too self destructive in my lowest moments. I’m not fearless, I just get bored easily. I love listening to people who have led full lives and who have different ways of seeing things. The Internet is, and always has been since I first got on aol 1996, my favorite place in the world. So many cool people to connect with and cool ideas to read about! I tagged a few random people
