I’m Sarah, and live in Missouri, where there are fewer tornadoes than in Texas and even fewer hurricanes.
I like geology,weather, history, and a whole lot of other things.
I’m a very liberal atheist. Like, really liberal. I support LGBTQ rights and marriage, etc, and I can get vocal about it. I also am a strong advocate of female empowerment.
Things that get me really worked up, in no particular order:
- abuse of any kind, but mostly domestic
- tornado safety!!!!
- the yellowstone supervolcano
- the great mortality (the “black plague”)
I’ve been on medications since the age of seven for various mental disorders. I don’t try to hide it because I hope that by explaining what I’ve gone through and the various medications I have taken I can help someone. I’ve been diagnosed with clinical depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
I’m pretty awkward socially. I can be shy when I meet new people, especially attractive boys, and find it best to keep my mouth shut so I don’t embarrass myself. When I do talk, I can get overexcited and/or nervous and stumble over my words or say things that I will immediately regret. I’m trying to be more assertive.
I don’t have many friends, and I have abandonment issues. As a result, I’m very guarded with my emotions and have trouble trusting people.
I will probably never bother to write out my life story, because I think it’s pretty lame and pathetic compared to other people’s.
Basically I was the one taking care of my three younger sisters while both my parents worked. I was a shy, introverted kid, not well-socialized, and was bullied as a result. I struggle with my self-image and self-worth, as well as my capability to make any difference in the world.
