day 1; introduce yourself

Hi!

I'm a Caitlin!

... you know, I've never actually known what to put into one of these boxes say to introduce myself.

I'm a little exciting, maybe - I earned my first dan black belt in Taekwondo. I've won a cooking contest. I speak (relatively fluent) French. I'm a poet, and a regular fiction writer.

I'm an actress, and a singer (I dance, too). When I was sixteen, I took a firefighting class at my local community college over the summer - and aced the class (also earning a wild land firefighting certification). I've been trained as a First Responder in the state of California.

I've semi-broken my back - but never any other bone. I'm a junior at college, training to be a teacher. I'm a Shakespeare fan.

I'm a nerd. Or a geek. Definitely a dork. All of the above.


... or something like that. That's my general "copy and paste" introduction that I use just about everywhere. But I guess, if I really had to give an in-depth introduction of myself...

I'm Caitlin. I'm twenty years old, attending my junior year at Saint Mary's College, in hopes of being a high school English teacher. I'm not sure if I'm going to be an embassy teacher or not, but I think I might do Teach for America for a number of years (oh my god tuition debt is going to kill me).

God I'm terrible at describing myself in any sort of detail. :/

5 foot 6, just the right weight for my age & height, "cute" and, I'd like to think, rather intelligent. I do well enough in school, with two jobs (late night on campus cafe from 9 pm to 1 am, Monday through Thursday; cooking a couple times a week for a local family), a full class schedule, and a couple of social activities (mostly clubs, a couple balls, a few random photo shoots, etc.).

I'm an English major (obviously), with an affinity for theater and creative writing. I write WAY more poetry than is healthy, and most of it about love in one form or another. I also write the occasional short story - I should write more - and somehow managed to sign myself up for NaNoWriMo, OH MY GOD. And I've started working on scripts. Yeah. >_>

Right. What else...

Er, I cosplay. Mostly for the photo shoots. xD And to hang out with friends. Plus, some of the costumes are so pretty!! And speaking of photo shoots - good God, I am such a vain little thing. I love having my picture taken. UGH.

I am actually incredibly shy. I can be loud and personable and chatty, but believe you me, I probably won't tell you anything of much importance to me. Unless you've known me for a while and I actually trust you. There are some 'big' things I don't hide, mostly because they helped make me who I am, and I won't hide those. Yeah.

I am starting to babble, even through type - actually I do that a lot. Babbling, that is. I just... start talking, and no one stops me. D:

I'm going to stop now.

Pyrexia

I have a fever

It burns me from the inside
Flaming underneath my flesh
Crisping my bones to ash

The blood in my veins
It bubbles and boils
Becoming a broth of fire

I have a fever

No compress on my brow
Can soothe the conflagration
That rages beneath my skin

No amount of ice against my skin
Can extinguish the inferno
Searing against my chassis

I have a fever

And it crawls throughout
My human frame, flaring
At every organ it consumes

For my heart
It pulses now not blood
But liquid fire

I have a fever

For I am sick from love
And know without the cure
That I soon shall die

I shall prefer to die
Of not a broken heart
But by the flames within

I have a fever

Say Not

Say not to me thy sad words of farewell
Leave only sweetness, joy, and love behind
For what may come these days no man may tell
And thus shalt thou grant peace unto my mind
As such a time has come for you to go
And leave me here to hold this place for you,
In doing this there is one thing I know
We two shall never truly bid adieu
Until the time that we shall meet again
And your figure once more do I discern
My life will be mine own to live till then
Yet I shall wait here for thy sweet return
Sending all mine prayers afar to thee
So hurry home, beloved, back to me.
