This is me, and my name is Shantel Maria Harris. My hair is naturally black and curly, and I tend to wear a ton of eyeliner. I'm a goth kid, and that can be kind of hard since I'm Puerto Rican, but I seem to pull it off.
I love to do my hair and makeup, and experiment the way I look. I love having colorful hair or extreme hair styles, but hair color is better for those days when I'm feeling lazy. I used to have long long hair down to my waist until I decided to cut it with a pair of safety scissors.
I am an artist. I enjoy drawing random pictures, comics, and writing things like poetry and stories... Pretty much anything that involves creativity I enjoy, and I'm even more likely to play video games where I can create my own character. I've been trying to publish something, but I can't seem to get anything done. I either don't have enough time or attention span. I'd like to sell comics or drawing at the next anime convention that comes into town, and who knows, maybe I'll be known for my art.
I'm very culturally confused (or as my brother's girlfriend puts it, well rounded). I'm a Puerto Rican who acts American, is interested in Asain culture, is learning German, Russian, and Japanese, makes amazing Chinese and Italian food, and has a wide variety of languages on her iPod. I also know a bit about a lot of religions, as opposed to a lot about one religion.
I like spending time in the bathtub, it's my indulgence. I don't get to often because I'm usually busy. My dream is to have a big bathroom that's nice and homey and clean, with a good view of the outdoors. I also love candlelight or blacklights while I'm taking a bath, and I even sometimes pour glitter in it. I love the feeling of being clean and smelling nice (and no one would believe it if they saw how disasterous my room was, but I just have a hard time picking up). I have an obsession with glitter, I adore the shiny mystical feeling of it.
I'm a pyromaniac, a nudist, and I hate limiting of the mind. When I'm outside, sometimes I'll get huge piles of sticks and just watch them burn and listen to music. It's a great time to think about my life. I also feel that nudity is beautiful, and not in the sexual way. I feel that nudity is free, and that's how humans were meant to be. I understand wanting clothes if it's snowing outside, but when it's 100 degrees, we should be able to have a choice.
I never limit my mind and try to keep moral values, because I think morality is stupid in the mind. The mind wasn't meant to be read for a reason, and I take advantage of it. I understand morality when it involves talking to other people and socializing, but when I'm all alone, all of my morality is instantly gone.
I'm an extremely visual person, so if my writing gets intense, it's because while I'm writing, I'm feeling as if I'm living through the story. My poetry is also based off of my emotions or what I've been through. Writing is a way for me to leave reality for a while, because I don't like reality.
I hope that people enjoy my writing and maybe I can be an author one day. :)
