About Me

About Me

I’m new to all of this. And when I say “all of this”, I literally mean everything. Autostraddle, the LGBT community, everything. Until very, very recently I just assumed I was straight, like all my friends. I’ve had boyfriends, feelings for men, straight sex, etc.. but I’ve alway felt a bit different. I’ve often joked to my family and friends that “I’m fed up with men, maybe I’ll just date women!” And recently I realised that that actually is an option!

It isn’t like I don’t know about lesbians or anything – I have gay friends, male and female, and I’m not a hermit. But I never, ever thought it would be me. Even so, on a whim I decided to google ‘Lesbian Sex Positions’. Woah. It was like a whole new world I didn’t even know existed! Eventually I stumbled upon Autostraddle, and I needed to look no further. I’ve been up until 4am several days in a row now, just reading articles on here and reading through the comments from all the amazing members here and it’s like someone is telling me my life story, over and over again.

I’ve never been with a woman, never kissed or touched or really even held hands with a woman, and I have no idea what it might feel like. All I know is that I want to try it, because girls are amazing!

I study music at university and I also work as a self-employed music teacher in my spare time. I play flute and piano and I love anything and everything to do with music! I also do sailing, I love watching football, I am crazy about musicals and I can’t seem to stop myself buying films at every opportunity I get..

I’d like to think I’m quite a feminine girl – I love makeup, boots, long socks and pretty underwear – but I can go out and get caked in mud from head to toe and love it (more than once!) and, as a sound engineer I have spent more than my fair share of time lifting heavy PA equipment, mixing desks, speakers, etc.. I’d like to think I’m quite strong, although really I’m only 5′ 2″ but if you think big, that’s what matters, right?

If you’ve made it this far and are still reading then congratulations. I’ve never written in one of these ‘About Me’ sections before, so I have no idea of the kind of thing I am supposed to put here, so I just did a bit of everything and hoped for the best.

A bit of everything! I know it’s corny, but I really do listen to a bit of everything. As a music student, I have learnt to appreciate good music of any genre, whether it is metal, country, classical, pop or dance music. Clearly, the best band ever has to be Queen, but even so, on my iPod I have The Pogues, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Witchers, Cascada, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, Basshunter, Queen, Jamiroquai, Taylor Swift, Oasis, Queen, Biffy Clyro, The Wanted, John Mayer, Pink, Katy Perry, The Cure, Jason Mraz, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, Backstreet Boys, Pitbull, Christina Perri, Scouting For Girls – etc.

Favorite Quotes

“So I was putting my bear’s scarf on and this tiger walks in…”

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”

“Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.”

“If dogs could talk it would take a lot of the fun out of owning one.”

“Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”

”Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.”

“A friend is someone who will bail you out of jail. A best friend is the one sitting next to you saying ‘boy was that fun.’”

“God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.”

“When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.”
