People call me Syn, I called myself Syn first, though people easily took to it as my name. Many completely forgot that other name they had called me before. I am in my late twenties, post grad, hard working up and coming professional by day, and still an angsty artsy chick by night.
Growing up I was never normal. By the time I was a teenager I simply accepted that I wasn’t, and found my own way through life. I began making websites, and reading my poems in front of people. Later on I started playing with fire, and became a devote vegan.
I live in a house with my boyfriend and our 4 cats. I keep my fire eating wands and knives in the living room, and there is soy milk in the fridge. I get up every morning by 7am, and am hard at work by 9.
I’m in love with psychology, art, and technology. Though after working in web development for a bit when I was 19 I realized I would end up killing a client for making silly demands for animated gifs. So I figured I’d learn to be a therapist instead.
It is important that everything I do means something to me. I believe in making every day count and try to make every moment reflect my beliefs. I simultaneously try to recognize that life can only be taken so seriously without it becoming burdensome. This is the part of my life where I get to laugh, goof off, and reflect. Without one the other doesn’t last long.
