I haven't quite figured out what I'm using this journal for after all. But we'll see, I guess. I think I want it to be a space separate from dreamwidth where I can talk about things, but also a place for me to crosspost my writing commissions work if that ever takes off, or something. I don't know. Maybe a return is in order.

ETA September 30, 2012:

Okay, I'm going to be using this post to introduce myself too.

My name... Well, you can just call me Velvet. I'm 22 years old, I'm South Asian (biracial, half-white and half-Indian), and I live somewhere in the US. I am an artist and writer trying to make it in this capitalist world. I used to go to college but then I had to go on leave and then drop out for medical reasons. I'm hoping probably at some point to go back to college somewhere to finish my degree. I'm genderqueer and femme and queer and various other complicated identities... I also struggle with mental illness and identify as neurodivergent (allistic, but not neurotypical). I am interested in a lot of things that are often described as "social justice" or "activism" but I prefer to call it "the politics of survival and resistance" or "kyriarchy resistance." Maybe that sounds pretentious though... I don't know.

Anyway, I would love to get to know people here :)
