I'm not one to talk about myself so I'm going to keep this very basic.
My name's Lynda but I go by violethaze or darkviolethaze online. I got the name from a hair dye I once used ;P It was such a funky shade of purple and the name (violet haze) just stuck in my mind and since it doesn't seem to be overused on the net I've adopted it as my own.
I'm 26 years old but most days feel middle aged. That's largely due to the fact I'm a single mum to two beautifully full on kids, my daughter Luca 6 years and son Cade 2.5 years. Being a parent is the single most amazing job in the world but it leaves you feeling less than human most days. Tiredness is not something you get used to people, no matter what they tell you 0.o
I live in the most amazing country in the world, New Zealand, srsly nowhere else compares. Well not that I've ever been anywhere else but hey I still know these things ;P I've travelled all over NZ and I've gotta say the South Island is where it's at, the scenic beauty of the beaches and mountains and countryside is really something else, you've really got to see it to believe it. So if you go anywhere in the world, come check out NZ, it's def a place of wonder!
I currently only have one "child" of the non human persuasion and that's my boy Dimka. He's this rather large and orange tomcat who's the biggest "pussy" you'll ever know ;P Srsly the cats got balls but I don't think ever uses them lol. He's such a snuggly lap cat it's surprising I don't have a house overrun with rodents, it's not like my boy's ever going to put his feline hunting prowess to use, he's such a sissy cat, n/j. But nah I loves him to pieces and is so good with my kids, puts up with all sorts of "love" and "attention". Oh and if anyone has read the amazing Vampire Academy books, yes that is where I got his name from. Don'tchya love it ;P
I have a rather ecclectic taste in music. But when it comes to movies and books I tend to stick to a limited genre. With movies it's action all the way, followd closely by fantasy and thriller. You would NEVER catch me dead watching a romcom (romantic comedy), I don't do (never have) sappy love stories, make me sick. Books; well it's fantasy all the way. I'm a huge fan of Twilight, of course and Vampire Academy is my bible, Richelle Mead owns my ass when it comes to her work, she's amazing. I'm also loving the BDB series, have only read the first one so far but am keen to get cracking on the rest of the series.
I love poetry, quotes, sayings etc and have several notebooks dedicated to such works. I find other peoples words to be so profound and love to collect anything that catches my eye to look back on later and try to find the meanings within the words (thanks Mr Shakespeare).
I LOVE LOVE LOVE body modification and sport many piercings and many scars from piercings long gone. I only have one tattoo so far :( and to me this is by far one of the most depressing things in my life. I have so many ideas for tattoos that I will get some day. I've just gotta find a reputable artist and get some designs drawn up, also there's the money involved and as those with an interest in body art know they don't come cheap so I'll be saving up for awhile :P But I have such a love for all things tattooed and pierced. I currently have a coloured earth dragon on my left forearm I got done when I was 18 and currently have 5 piercings: tongue, lip, tragus, lobes. I used to have: both eyebrows, nose, bridge, industrial and several helix, but they either grew out (eyebrows) or just never healed properly and were taken out. My next piercing is def going to be to get my industrial in my right ear done again, I really miss it.
Wow so I don't like talking about myself huh, yeah uh could've fooled my Lynda, um not lol. Nah I actually didn't think I'd have much to write about. I'm not that interesting, really. I spend my days looking after my kids and home and spend time with family and friends when I can. I'm addicted to fanfic and proud. Srsly they should have support groups for people with this affliction, don't you agree?! :P
Peace, Love and Diversity!
