My name is Effie. I’m 26 years old and live in the great state of Washington. I work at a local non-profit as a training specialist and love my job, though I’m currently finishing up my degree in project management.
I’m queer. Meaning I’m attracted to all people on the gender spectrum though I’m generally more attracted to females and non-binary people. My criteria for partners is difficult to explain but I’m most happiest when I can have my own space - I will happily spend the night most nights but when I want to be alone I need to be alone. It makes finding a partner a chore. I’m also very devoted to my work - soooo, there’s that.
I have two cats, Wheatley and Bones. They are my Wheat and Wheat-by-products. I also have countless poochie nephews and nieces that will sometimes be featured here.
I’m also very sick. I try not to talk about it but sadly to say I am. I have been diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases (where your body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue) - Graves Disease (currently post-radiation hypothyroid, working on getting levels back up) and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I swim, run (on good pain days), bike, hike and kayak/row. Most mornings and evenings begin with yoga and my cats LOVE to get in my face for that.
I have tattoos and I’m currently in the process of procuring more. So far my plans include finishing up my science sleeve, two thigh tattoos (Crows before Bros and Eat the Rude), and then another sleeve. I dye my hair blue most months and one day I will convince my hairdresser to take a pair of clippers to my sides.
I play video games, write long ass stories, want to start a production of deaf Hawkguy, and run a non-profit.
I also plan on buying a repossession and fixing it up. I want to buy land in the middle of the mountains and build various types of sustainable housing (treehouse, hobbit hole, tiny home, etc). I want a horse to go on overnight trips into the mountains, a dog to wander the woods and as many bikes and bows my home can handle.
I knit and needlepoint. I shoot bows and try to cook.
The character most like me is Bruce Banner - if he hung out with Clint Barton way too much.
So, welcome to my blog and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
