About Me

Ive been having a hard time trying to write up this 'about me' section, so bare with me :p

I am saving up for my dream trip I will having in the UK soon so if you have any recommendations or advice on places to visit in Ireland or England I would LOVE to hear it!

Science is a major part of my life. I love delving in to every aspect of it and learning something new. I am majoring in Biology so I am really into the sciences. Protistas and bacteria are my specialty.

I have a few animals which I care and adore for.

My boyfriend is a cutie, and he's very special to me.

Gardening is a passion of mine. I set up my first tomato patch this season and its going wonderfully. I love all things that are about planting, permaculture, self-sufficiency etc.

Im very much into narrations of horror stories. I love podcasts and channels such as The NoSleep Podcast and MrCreepyPastas Storytime. If you have any suggestions of horror stories Id love to hear them! I am interested in recording my own narrations as well and even collaborating with others to record some stories.

Disappearances is the one thing that leaves me most restless. I wish I could find people that have disappeared and never been seen or heard from again. If I was capable of doing so I would spend all my time trying to find these missing people. Im really afraid of the horrors these people who are never seen again may have faced. And in what might seem like an illogical reason, I want to protect these people. I don't know, these unsolved mysteries just tug at my heart and curiosity. I know this must come off as insane,but I cant help be interested in this topic lol.

Comment: The best kind of swap is the one where it is as much fun for the sender as it is for the receiver, I am glad that you enjoyed your experience. I love the cards and I did not mean to inadvertently put pressure on you to find obscure Irish saints. It was my own personal search and I was wondering if anyone had a resource that I was unaware of. Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Im happy you liked what I sent and if anything. I was also able to learn a little bit about Irish saints, but sadly I wasnt even able to come up with any info on Welsh saints.

Thank you so much for the cute Halloween & Fall sticker sheets & the penguin bookmark for the 1$ store addicts >Pick 2 tag (USA) ~I love it all:)

Wanda on Aug 23, 2013:

Hi NoirNoire! Thanks for the message on my profile. :) Oh,my - I haven't used my Zombies, Run! app in ages. I have really, REALLY been slacking off in the fitness department. :/ I am really loving the whole Mori thing! I'm so glad the monthly swap theme schedule is up now. Yes, I sell eggs, veggies, pickles, etc. from home, plus I go to the farmers market to sell each Saturday. It helps me a lot financially, and I really do enjoy it. And I am always thrilled to hear about others who are interested in gardening, permaculture, etc. You sure do have an interesting profile. Disappearances interest me too. And I watch those types of tv shows an awful lot. It sure has made me more aware and more cautious about personal safety.
