Hi! I’m Andromeda, Andy for short. Basically, i was named after a constellation that has quite a story. See, a sea monster threatened a small kingdom, and as a peace offering, the king chained his only daughter, Andromeda, to a rock that faced the water so the sea monster could eat her. But before the monster had his offering, a hero came and slayed it and saved Andromeda. Of course, it ends like all other stories and the two get married and so forth. Yet somehow, Andromeda’s constellation will forever be her chained to the rock, her being remembered as a perfect image of a damsel in distress.
But that’s not me.
I’m a girl who’s hit rock bottom, fallen so far, and is still here being happy.
I’m spunky, funny, boring, loud, shy, unpredictably predictable, a contradiction to humanity, an honest liar, and someday I’m going to open a little shop, just not sure what kind.
My favorite things in life are mysteries, unpredictable outcomes, risks, and chances. I like to put time and interest into things you have no way of knowing the outcome until it’s done, like this blog. I love the feeling of anxiety as you wait for the coin to land or the ticket to be drawn. That feeling where you know it won’t happen but you know it will, where you feel so heavy, but so light that if you don’t hold onto something you’ll float away. That butterfly-ish feeling.
Yeah, I’m strange.
My favorite season is fall, my favorite type of weather is when it storms and thunder shakes the house, My favorite flavor is watermelon, and my favorite color changes every day. I rely on music and photos to capture life and reflect how I feel. I also enjoy quotes to portray my mood and alliteration. I find it amusing when you cast out a large word or phrase and no one understands and like to be known as a confusing person.
I hate the word “drawer” and when people say “have a good one” I’m always tempted to ask: “A good one what?” I hate the sound of cupcake pans banging together and hate making children cry. My least favorite subject in school is human body and i will never ever be a dentist or doctor.
So basically, that’s me in a nut shell. Have fun on your journeys, travels, and days spent on the couch.
