The (not so) skinny on Danielle

I thought I'd do a real down and dirty get to know me post. I was looking at all my 'about me' type link-ups and my SSG page was so vague I scrapped it altogether.

So here it is.

I am 27 years old, I live in SC, and I have an amazing boyfriend, J.

I have a variety pack of 4 sisters and I am the oldest. It's a yours, mine, ours, and theirs situation.
Daddy's Girls
Mama's Girls (w/mama)

My sister, and my dad's girlfriend are both bloggers and you should check them out. 

I work for a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault non-profit agency where I've been for a little over 4 years now. 

I am a Christian.

I am a Liberal.

I believe in and advocate for equal/civil/human rights.

I like to get involved in causes that I believe in.

I don't like to argue with people. I like to "discuss" politics but only with people who make the effort to be calm and open-minded and I strive to do the same.

When I get angry or offended I cry, and it's not pretty.

I have a thing for beverages. I know it's weird, but read any 'about me' I've ever written and you can bet that I probably talked about wine, coffee, sweet tea, or chocolate milk. 

I really love music. Like, a lot.

I am a big girl that wishes she were smaller, but I kinda love my big boobs and round booty.
I read a lot. I really enjoy a good book. I read erotic romance, main stream romance, literary fiction, chick lit, and crime thrillers. I'm not big on most paranormal (vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc.) though I do enjoy the witchcraft/magical elements occasionally. I have a book blog, Chaos, Coffee and a Bookshelf. I don't keep up with it as well as I do this blog, but I do post reviews there.

I'm kinda messy? Lol, my family would tell you this is an understatement. I'm rarely at home and when I am it seems like I'm just unpacking to repack and be gone again. So I generally have clothes everywhere and random hygiene products scattered about. When I'm home for periods of time I do try to clean to make things pretty, but most of the time I'm not around long enough to bother.

I love making jewelry for my small business. I am the happiest when I am being creative. I would give anything to be able to put myself into being self-employed full-time. My dream is to own a coffee shop and gift boutique [Wired Essentials, starting to get it? :)]. I want to learn how to do glass work, metal work and pottery. I can't wait until the day I have my own studio space so that I can really get into these things!
I want children, but the idea of being responsible for another human being scares me to death, so I want to wait at least three years after I'm married before going there.

I love schedules and calendars and planners, but I don't keep them as well as I should.

I have a weird quirk when I brush my teeth. I will brush my tongue until I gag. I don't feel like my mouth is clean if I haven't done this. I thought I was really weird until the couple of years I lived with my dad and discovered that he did it too, and so did my baby sister. So it's apparently some strange inherited trait.

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store I have a little bit of an obsession with sensuality. I love erotic romance, lingerie, massage candles, and other 'adult' novelties. I don't mind talking about it because I think that sexuality is a part of our personalities and if you ask my friends they will tell you it's a big part of mine.

I have high expectations. I expect a lot from myself (hence the super busy schedule and daily anti-anxiety pill) and I expect a lot from others. I don't have a lot of patience for people who aren't willing to do what they have to do to help themselves. This sometimes leads to ranting sessions that I later have to apologize for.

I love my friends. They are awesome and I can't imagine not having them in my life. 

I could probably keep going, but this post kinda got away from me. I hope you feel like you know me a little better now!

What do you think people should know about you?

I think it's awesome that you'll post about sexuality on here! Most people find it taboo and when I find somebody that doesn't, I want to give them a big hug =)

Have a great weekend

I do the same thing when I'm brushing my teeth! I agree if I don't do it I don't really feel like I've cleaned well enough. So funny, glad you can relate ;)
