"There is no exquisite beauty... without some strangeness in the proportion."
— Edgar Allan Poe
Hello there, and welcome to my page. ♥
My name is Lilly.
I'm eightteen years old and I feel very ancient and unproductive for my age.
I'm from Maryland but I go to college in the District.
I'm a small girl with big dreams.
I've started my life recently and I'm very excited about it.
I'm very shy but I have a lot to say. Don't mistake my silence for arrogance.
I'm a bit predictable but rather paradoxical. Everything, for me, depends on the situation. That last sentence is likely one of the only definite statements I'll ever make.
I'm told that I'm a bit strange and surprising at times, but maybe that's true of everybody. I believe that I'm odd but not bizarre. Differences are, of course, what makes the world interesting... I'd like to believe someday that I'm interesting.
I live for laughing. I like to hang around people who have a good sense of humour.
Even though I can be quite negative at times, I always try to be positive and look at the bright side of situations. The only reason I'm alive today is because I'm a strong optimist.
So many people on this site are a bit too concerned about things for my tastes. I'm a very easygoing and loyal yet considerate person. You only live once; I learned that at a young age.
I'm always trying to better myself and become the person I want to be. I'm always trying to discover myself, I guess.
I'm anti-authority and a stubborn fighter for the things I believe in. And I'm flat-out stubborn. I care about what others say only to a certain extent.
I don't have a religion or a faith but I follow my rules.
I love traditional arts, but I'm more a patron of the arts than an artist myself. I suck at execution and I'm not patient at all.
I'm an interior design major and an art history minor. Interior design is my passion, but I also love writing, evolutionary studies, crafting, and simply enjoying life.
Oh, and I love web design - not particularly graphic-making, but coding and designing web pages.
But I have to say I'm not very good at anything I do.
I love travelling. I want to see the world before I die.
I'm a terrible visionary.
My favourite word is if and I'm always talking about doing things that could never happen or that I'll never have the money for.
Of course, I've come to accept my life as it is but I could never live with that alone.
"I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited."
- Sylvia Plath
And that's about all I have to say.
Sorry if I've disappointed you, but thank you if I didn't.
I don't reply to many comments, frankly, but I do appreciate them.
Thanks again for visiting.
Have a lovely day/evening. ♥
