Hello everyone. My name is Marianna. I am a 19 year old female but (as with most people my age) I feel a somewhat older. I'm one of those people who feels isolated in the "real world" ... like I'm the only person who lives as I do. It's a relief to have the internet, where I realize that I'm not alone! *grins*
So what's my story? The start of this chapter of my life when I moved out at 15 to escape an abusive situation with my father. Being raised on a unhealthy amount of abstinence education and abysmal sex education, I found myself pregnant soon afterwards - only a month after becoming sexually active with my boyfriend. After some agonizing, we chose to keep the pregnancy. So, 2.5 years ago I gave birth to a daughter, whom I named Michaela. I married her father a month after she was born - and yes, we are happy thankyouverymuch. *grins* I'm in a polyfidelitious relationship with my husband Jonathan and LDR partner, Bryan. This is my crazy little family and the center of my universe - full of love, excitement and a lot of anything unusual.
I'm vegan, a tabletop roleplayer, a Christian, a college student, a bookworm, a traveller (as far as our limited student budget will allow!), a Mac user, a housewife, a model on an alternaporn webpage, a pacifist, a feminist, an activist, a bisexual - there are lots of labels I can throw out to help you identify me.
But most of all, I'm just a girl (or woman, I suppose, although it's weird adjusting to THAT label in particular) ... a regular, ordinary, person just like everyone else, trying to live my life in a way that is true to me, in a way that will keep me happy without compromising those in my life.
Anyway! I look forward to getting to know the people here. *smiles* Nice to meet you all.
