HI.

I'm doing an Honours degree in Genetics. I like flowers and I play the piano.
Thanks for reading my amazing bio.

thank god it's legal, otherwise all that lesbian porn would have been so hard to explain.

Juuust kidding. Yay for USA! Same-sex marriage has been legal here for a while. But all the rainbows splattering on my computer screen this weekend were wonderful, the unity is marvelous. It's becoming increasingly difficult to explain to the church-goers I'm surrounded by why we should not be old judgmental farts about the whole thing. Even in this free country I see how heavily religious nuts can press down on those considered different, it leads to so much pain, like are you sure we follow the same Jesus? If all their spiritual blog posts spreading through social media didn't make me so angry, I'd find them amusing. "These are dark days", "God will not bless this nation", "We have the audacity to turn against God", "Christians will be persecuted for standing their ground against homosexuality", "Our skies are so grey" holy shit why are you acting like it's the apocalypse, if it's the end days it's not because of homosexuals, jesus christ where do these people get their information from.

How are you? I'm fine, cold, it's winter. Friday was the one-year anniversary of me going to see Tori Amos perform live in Joburg. Memories. Mammaries (they tingled when she sang (because i love her very much)). 

Has anyone seen Banshee? Really lovin' dat show, though I'm still on season 2.

Hey Iyra,

I just wanted to stop by to say thank you. With all the outrageously talented artists and writers here on dA, for you - someone so accomplished and recognized -  to chose to spend a moment of your time watching me and my scrawlings, it truly means a lot, good miss.
:iconbowplz:

I'm humbled.
