So I wrote a thing. This is not saying that all labels are bad and we should totally get rid of them. Mostly this is coming from an attitude of me being tired of people putting so much importance in labels. Of putting up these walls based on labels.


I am...
People get so caught up in these labels they have to apply to themselves. In labeling everything. It's almost an obsession at this point.

I am human.

I am pansexual.

I am a girl.

I am otherkin.

I am... the list goes on and on.

It so often feels that we are trying to label everything to the point of absurdity and meaninglessness. I could label myself with an almost endless list of descriptors. But to what point? How much more do you really know about me? We put so much focus on these labels that we forget to just learn about one another. To find out who we are without these preconceived notions of what these labels mean. We use them as a way to instantly decide if we hate or love someone.

"I HATE all gays!"

"I LOVE all Trekkies!"

And it's so funny because I will see people who will rant and rave against certain labels, but then hold others so dear to themselves. And for me I feel like we're making the sentence too long.

I am human.

I am pansexual.

I am a girl.

I am otherkin.

I am... and that's where it should end.

I am.

And isn't that the most important part? I am alive. I exist. And if you want to know more about me than that then get to know me. There is so much more to me than any label could EVER contain. And there so much more to every person living than any label can contain.

I love to make stuff by hand and play video games. I have a weird mix of hobbies
Introduction

I grew up in the middle of nowhere Texas. I have a Botany BS from OSU. I love sewing, knitting, crocheting, beadwork, wire crafts, making porcelain dolls, and a ton of other crafts. I am also a gamer and computer geek with an extensive collection of console games. I like anime, Star Trek, Firefly, Dr. Who, MST3K, and tons of other sci-fi/fantasy movies/shows, and steampunk. I am also an avid reader and when I am not swamped, I like to always have a book next to my bed to read. Going along with my botany major, I also garden and love to cook with stuff I have grown. Speaking of which, I just plain love to cook. Oh, I almost forgot, I also like to hike, horseback ride, and go gold prospecting. There isn’t much I’m not interested in.

My husband is +Simon Skiles

I am a 9 wing 1

Enneagram Type 9 - The Peacemaker

Keeping peace and harmony

People of this personality type essentially feel a need for peace and harmony. They tend to avoid conflict at all costs, whether it be internal or interpersonal. As the potential for conflict in life is virtually ubiquitous, the Nine's desire to avoid it generally results in some degree of withdrawal from life, and many Nines are, in fact, introverted. Other Nines lead more active, social lives, but nevertheless remain to some to degree "checked out," or not fully involved, as if to insulate themselves from threats to their peace of mind. Most Nines are fairly easy going; they adopt a strategy of "going with the flow." They are generally reliable, sturdy, self-effacing, tolerant and likable individuals.

Nines tend to adopt an optimistic approach to life; they are, for the most part, trusting people who see the best in others; they frequently have a deep seated faith that things will somehow work out. They desire to feel connected, both to other people and to the world at large. They frequently feel most at home in nature and generally make warm and attentive parents.

The Nine's inability to tolerate conflict sometimes translates into an overall conservative approach to change. Change can provoke unpleasant feelings and disrupt the Nine's desire for comfort. Less healthy Nines seem incapable of motivating themselves to move into action and bring about effective change. When change does come however, as it generally will, Nines find that they are usually well able to adapt. They tend to be more resilient than they give themselves credit for. In fact, Nines tend not to give themselves enough credit in general, and their self-effacing attitude often seems to invite others to take them for granted or to overlook their often significant contributions. This can cause a subterranean anger to build inside the Nine's psyche, which can erupt into consciousness in occasional fits of temper which quickly blow over, but which more often manifests itself in passive agressive footdragging. Being overlooked is often a source of a deep sadness in Nines, a sadness that they scarcely ever give voice to.

Nines frequently mistype themselves as they have a rather diffuse sense of their own identities. This is exacerbated by the fact that Nines often merge with their loved ones and through a process of identification take on the characteristics of those closest to them. Female Nines frequently mistype as Twos, especially if they are the mothers are small children. Nines, however, are self-effacing whereas Twos are quite aware of their own self worth. Nines also mistake themselves forFours, but Nines tend to avoid negative emotions whereas Fours often exacerbate them. Intellectual Nines, especially males, frequently mistype as Fives, but Fives are intellectually contentious whereas Nines are conciliatory and conflict avoidant.

Friendliest truck stop I have ever been in. I'm always happy with how clean and well stocked Pilots are, but the people in this stop were just amazing. I went in while my husband was filling up the car to ask about the showers (we'd never used them before but wanted to try them out on this long trip). The guy told me how they worked and what they cost and then a super nice trucker gave me one of his free showers. Thanked him profusely then told my husband and sat down to wait for him to shower. Then one of the attendants asked me if I'd like some cookies while I waited. The restaurant was closing and he would have to toss them. I asked for two and he gave me three! <3

The food was very good. Traditional Japanese dishes and sushi. Our waiter was a little flaky (might have been his first day) but definitely not bad enough to ruin the dinner. Three sushi rolls and two bentos came to $60 and that is fairly typical for good Japanese food.
