Who am I? That’s a good question. I’m trying to figure that out on my own, but my answer will probably end up being different from yours. I’ll give you the easy parts.
My name is Karalee, though I go by Kara or Karaboo. I’m 22, and living currently in Portland, Maine. I’m a female who also identifies as a female, about 5’6, with white skin, and blue eyes. I grew up in New York, right outside of the city but moved up to Maine for college (before I dropped out). Now I live in a safe and sober housing co-operative called Dreamship.
I’m an activist and community organizer, an animal lover, a dancer, and a poet (sometimes), as well a lover. I am very detail oriented, loving to figure out subtleties and make minute observations. Sometimes, however this leads to a perfectionist agenda, and I am trying to move away from that as it has given me dissatisfying limits. I’m constantly trying to surrender my need for control in a chaotic world as a defense mechanism.
I’m random, and sometimes impulsive. I’m passionate, but can run myself clean out of fuel. (I’m looking for more renewable energy sources as an alternative anyway.) I’m not perfect, but I’m not so bad either. I’m trying to understand that, and it may be reflected in my writing.
Is that enough for now? I’m sure you’ll learn much more about me through my thoughts. These are just fillers. Let’s go! ❤
