I am somewhere between 18 and 22 years old. My initials are SSM, but you can call me Morgaine. Sometimes it’s hard for me to accept that I am not, in fact, Morgan le Fay, so humor me, please. I live in Vermont, but I’m moving to Oregon soon.
I like to stand out. I have pink hair, a tattoo on my hip, and a stud in my nose. I run a fashion blog. I like to be seen, but I’ve only just realized that I’m deeply uncomfortable being known. Displaying myself for a crowd happens on my terms. When someone, of their own accord, tries to dig a little deeper, I run screaming. I’m slowly working up from “graceless hermit” to “functional conversationalist.” Perhaps one day I’ll attain “suave sophisticate” (but I’m not holding my breath).
I’m awesome at fashion, words, and dragging people from their comfort zones. My favorite kind of cake is sponge, which I’ve had every birthday since my ninth. (The pictured cake, sadly, is not sponge, but trifle from my university market. Still pretty good.)
I used to be bulimic, and I can’t believe I just admitted that on the internet.
Unroast? The only makeup I wear is lipstick, and I love how I look with crimson lips on an otherwise bare face.
My favorite food is whipped cream.
