Do you have any phobias/extreme fears? I am afraid of spiders, dying very old and alone, my children hating me, something HAPPENING to my children.
Do you plan for the future, or are you spur-of-the-moment? It all depends on the situation, and the circumstances. I really don’t like planning ahead since I have a habit of forgetting things.
Are you studying for anything (and if so what/if not, it’s ok ^_~)? I have actually considered going back to college. I have a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications; however I would really like to go to the Denver art institute to study photography/lighting/effects and possibly some courses on modeling (I am semi-pro, however I’m sure there is plenty they can teach me)
Do you have any fetishes (and no, we don’t mean “I love shoes”)? Yes I do, however I would prefer to keep these private, however if you MUST know, I’ll let some of it leak out.
Are you spiritual/religious? I am spiritual, religious, no. I do not believe I need to have someone telling me what the right path for my religious faith is. What I believe in is quite obscure, so most never get an explanation.
Abortion: I am pro-choice for everyone but myself. I have 3 children (oldest is 4, my twins are 2 1/2) and am a very proud parent. Though if someone feels they made a mistake, which people often do, I think it is their own right as a person to do what they believe is best. I do NOT however feel like it should be means of birth control. There are some very good contraceptives out there to help with that (or in my case, I had a tubal ligation to prevent anymore pregnancies)
Suicide: When I first applied to this community (before I lost my account), I answered this question quite hastily.
“I believe it is one of the most selfish acts someone can perform. I have lost quite a few people to suicide, and it hurt that I lost them, but the anger that they did this by their own will is much more intense.”
During the past few months I have been given the chance to know loss in many ways. Suicide included. Over these months, I have also felt new things about myself, the world I live in, and the love I have lost, and found. It is not something I could do, though it is something I have thought about.
My tie to this world…the one tie that binds me here is my 3 beautiful children. Their father died last January. Causing each of them pain, heartache and instability of their emotions. I cannot bear the thought of how they would be if something happened to me as well. They are why I am here, trying to survive whatever it is that is haunting my emotions.
I now understand why people were upset about my initial reply to the question. I’m on a different side of the fence now.
That was a bit more long winded than I had wanted it to be. However the question of my opinion was asked.
Stereotypes: They are everywhere, not just in the goth subculture. People are stereotyped
every day by the color of their skin, by the type of car they drive, the clothes they wear, and the music they listen to.
Inter racial relationships: It shouldn't matter what color someone is that you fall in love with. If you fall in love with someone, their physical exterior should become obsolete.
Drugs, alcohol and smoking: drugs, well, I have been clean for 5 years. I got mixed up with them as a young teen, and it took becoming pregnant with my oldest son for me to WANT to clean myself up. If someone does them, it
won’t deter me from wanting a friendship with that person; however I would ask for sobriety when they are in my presence. As far as alcohol, I am a social drinker, so I can’t say much there. With smoking, I have been working my way down the ladder of being “a gracefully retired smoker”. I smoke camels, cloves, sheesha, and bidis
Poseurs: They are everywhere and not always easy to spot unless conversation happens and they are proved to be something they aren't portraying themselves to be. When this happens, I have found it quite effective to just smile and end the discussion. There is no reason for me to point out their faults on the matter, it would just start an upset, and I would rather a calm parting.
Labels: as with stereotypes, they are everywhere. You cannot avoid them since people are labeled different things everyday, right down to the label of "mom". I think people who deny labels, or that they are labeled anything are in actuality in denial of themselves.
Same-sex marriages: I am all for them. If I found a woman that I truly loved, I would want the chance to be able to legally wed. Who you fall in love with shouldn't matter to anyone but you and your partner. If people of two different ethnic backgrounds or regions can marry, I believe that ANYONE should marry regardless of what sexes both of them are.
What makes you a gothic beauty?: I have a sense of the world that most would hardly understand except for those in the subculture I placed myself in more than 8 years ago. I am a beautiful person inside and out, who does all she can for those who my heart beats for. I have my imperfections, I have my uniqueness
Confess something (doesn’t have to be major): My confession for the day is that, I, Treanna, steal my sister's eyeliner. Both of us have worn the same brand and color for 10 years, and when I run out and find a stick of hers placed ever so close to the mirror I use to apply, I can't help myself. I am an eyeliner kleptomaniac.
Do you think you will be accepted? As someone who is returning to the group, people have seen my posts, and know that I’m not always the nicest in my responses (especially to half-assed applications submitted by people who belong down the hall in the metal chat). I would like to think however that I have left some type of positive impression on the majority of the community.
Post at least 3 clear photos of yourself AND a 100x100 photo/icon (YES ITS REQUIRED):
