My name is Danielle.
I am an artsy fartsy, hippy dippy gypsy. Dreadhead, Deadhead, Metalhead. Head in the clouds.
I am proudly weird. Good Weird. I like bright colors. I like adventures, and exploring.
I am a veteran of the United States Navy. I am a self-proclaimed artist, and photographer. I work out of my home as a Dread Worker. I install and maintain dreadlocks for straight hair-types.
I am currently going to school to obtain an associates degree, with intent to get a bachelors after that for Art Therapy. I am awesome. I may be insane, but I'm having fun.
I have Asperger's Autism. I am an Aspie! What this means is that I have high functioning autism. I appear normal but social situations are very hard and exhausting for me. Autism is not a disease or a mental illness. Basically, the neurons in my brain fire faster and in a different pattern that what is considered "normal". I am just wired differently, that is all. I have over-sensitive sensory perception issues, so background noises confuse me and loud sounds startle and stress me out longer than they should. I have constant anxiety. There are good things about Aspergers though, like: my amazing long term photographic memory, my ability to tune out the world when I am being artistic, I can find solutions to problems most people wouldn't consider, and that it makes me a advocate and a voice for lower functioning people with autism. Having autism does not mean that I am a math wizard and that I love trains. I hate and suck at math and trains are boring.
My favorite colors are: Teal, Jade and Seafoam greens, blues, peaches, dark reds.
I would LOVE to receive these things:
anything for my dog Milo. West Highland Terrier.
If we have common interests, I would love to be pen-pals. I love sending and sharing things and getting to know people of like minds and interests.
