I care about others’ feelings and listen to them when they speak to me. Sure I have great interest in healing, but I’m not exactly going out into the world and looking for people to save. In fact its actually pretty selfish. I want to feel needed. ….If I end up setting a good example for others than it is only because I was doing it for myself.” ❏2. What about you is social? What do you like about people? "I’m not…really the most sociable person. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to get to know people, though! It’s just that my body has this reaction… It’s like an allergic reaction. First my heart races so fast it nearly drowns out the words of greeting or introduction that the stranger has offered. Then a stinging lump will rise in my throat, the type that makes your eyes water. Sometimes, though usually this happens after the interaction, I hyperventilate. Quickly followed by mortification and tears of embarrassment to mix into the general misery. Though I’ve come a long way, I still look very uncomfortable when talking to strangers. Even though (and in most cases, especially) if it is someone I want to get to know.” ❏ 3. Do you have a nickname? What is it, and where did you get it? "My dad would call me ita when I was growing up. Most of my family calls me by my middle name.” ❏4. What do you look like? (Include height, weight, hair, eyes, skin, apparent age, and distinguishing features) "Awesome. Uhm. Okay. I’m average height I guess…maybe a little short? Kinda short. I dunno. 5’4” ish. I guess you would say I’m curvy? My waist is high placed and my hips flare out enough to be noticeable. Tits are a ‘lil over a handful and shapely enough. Still, I guess I’ll always wish I was thinner. heh. My hair finally brushes my belly button, it’s taken years to get this long and I don’t really plan on cutting it any time soon. Fuck dead ends. My hair is thick too so I don’t have to worry about it thinning too much as I get older. My eyes I’m less fond of, mostly because one of them doesn’t work and it caused me a few…difficulties growing up. They’re just..brown. One of them, the left one, has a cloud over the pupil and is legit smaller than the other.”❏ 5. How do you dress most of the time? "Uhm…oddly, I guess. I like cute pretty dresses, anything pastel or lacy. But I also like long flowing skirts. I tend to uhm… exotically accessorize. Not a lot of pale skinned people wear nose chains and all of my other jewelry is hand made…mostly by me or people I know. And I love boots. Like seriously. All the boots. And red lip stick…and winged eyeliner.” ❏ 6. Do you wear any jewelry? "Yes, I love the sparklies. I have a gold nose hoop that my mom got me, a thick gold chain necklace with gold coins (most likely plated.). Another thinner and longer gold chain from my grandmother with a dream catcher amulet my parents made. A thin gold chain going from my nose ring to a secondary piercing on the right ear. A silver band bracelet my father gave me for my 16th birthday. And assorted rings from my parents." ❏7. In your opinion, what is your best feature? "Mm, I’m gonna say my lips. They’re full and look awesome with red lipstick." ❏8. Where do you live? Describe it: Is it messy, neat, avant-garde, sparse, etc.? "I guess you would say its unconventional. It’s probably a little bigger than a new york apartment, and a palace compared to the worker’s "apartments" in china. I have a couch/bed, hey it’s somewhere to sleep, a stove, central heating, indoor plumbing…sort of. And the whole place is decorated with things I’ve picked up like assorted idol figurines, artifacts and antiques, crystals and geodes…and drawing and whatever crafts I’m working on to sell. It’s..uh, not much but it’s home.” ❏9. Do you own a car? Describe it. "My home is my car. It’s a used volkswagen camper van that my mom helped me get. I’ve had her for about a year now. Her name is Kismet." image ❏10. What is your most prized mundane possession? Why do you value it so much? "I…have no idea. There’s the things I’m wearing…but other than that, well my car of course but that’s not really mundane? Anyways- other than that I don’t really feel too strongly for mundane objects.” She’d totally freak if her dresses, scented lotions, oils, crystals, or weed were missing. Just saying. ❏11. What one word best describes you? ”Mm…Eccentric? I suppose. Yeah. That word pretty much sums me up.” ❏She is also a Nagual- a Nagual or Nahual (both pronounced [na’wal]) is a human being who has the power to magically turn him- or herself into an animal form: most commonly a donkey, turkey, or dog, but also other and more powerful animals such as the jaguarand puma. Such a Nagual is believed to use his powers for good or evil according to his personality. Specific beliefs vary, but the general concept of nagualism is pan-Mesoamerican. Nagualism is linked with pre-Columbian shamanistic practices through Preclassic Olmec depictions which are interpreted as humans transforming themselves into animals. The system is linked with the Mesomerican calendrical system, used for divination rituals. The birth date often determines if a person will be a Nagual. Mesoamerican belief in tonalism, wherein all humans have an animal counterpart to which their life force is linked, is also part of the definition of nagualism. In English the word is often translated as “transforming witch”, but translations without the negative connotations of the word witch would be “transformingtrickster" or "shape shifter”.
