    10 things about myself, besides my glass love...

    1. I was raised by my mama and she taught me to be my own self no matter what other people might think, but don't judge others even though others judge me.

    2. My names Justin and as long as I can remember pink has always been my favourite color, although at the end of my kindergarten year I claimed black to be my favourite because I was constantly bullied about my love for pink. This was long before pink was cool for guys. Also black is my least favourite color, honestly I don’t even think it should be called a color, more like the absence of color.

    3.I have always been fascinated with tribal peoples, particularly ones that practice extreme body modification. I have wanted to modify my body as long as I can remember, and started secretly performing mods on my self at 13 as my parents were strongly opposed. My first mod was a branding on my left ankle and was immediately noticed by my step dad at witch time he smashed a plate and proceeded to scold me. All further mods were were discreetly placed until I was an adult. Mods as a minor include the ankle brand, 3 tattoos placed where my boxers would cover, A branding of the letter A on my left pointer finger for my first girlfriend. Two cuttings an om on my left thigh and another exs name on my right thigh, One flesh removed heart above my xs name, PAUL branded below my right hip after my best friend got sent away. piercings included a 00g prince albert, horizontal nipples, a lower navel I scalpeled to a 2g while in the shower, 00g septum. All self done by 15 years old. Several more tattoos, brands, piercings as an adult but not nearly as many as I thought I would have by now.
    4. At 16 I shot 3 small bunnies and 1 adult, after I gave them a burial and contemplated their life and my actions. That day I became vegan.
    5. I have always played with fire and was sent to a class for pyro children where they showed videos of kids blowing them selves up. I was more discreet after that.
    6. I ran away from home when I was 16 because I was ready to start my life. Eventually I contacted mom and said if she would consent I would tell her where I was or was going. Visited over half of all the states by 17.
    7. Besides working for my self I have never worked for anyone longer than 2 months. Can't do it.
    8. Lived and travelled in a van with a lover for 2 years. At that time I was generating the most income I ever have, sometimes 5,000 a week. I have no idea where the money went, but it was a good time... Mostly.
    9.I believe in your god, and if your atheist I bet you believe in my god.
    10. I love you, guaranteed!

    That's the first 10 things that came to mind.

    One more.

    I have been a member here for over 10 years, browse the threads constantly, almost never post, but I love it here and all the amazing people who make this possible.
    Thank you!

    I really like this concept, so I'll add my 10 things.

    1. I had love once (for 17 years), now I don't, so Loveless was born (I'll get my one back, or die alone trying).
    2. I've been completely abstinent for over a year now (it's not as hard as one would think).
    3. I've been playing bass guitar and saxophone badly for years.
    4. Due to meds (I didn't need) I know what true insanity is like (17 years of it due to a long misdiagnosis).
    5. I was a professional tattoo artist for 16 years (I don't count the years of being under aged and poking my friends in the garage).
    6. I was homeless in a bad neighborhood recently (The whole time I didn't carry even a knife).
    7. I'm very hard headed, I had to learn all my lessons the hard way, but at least I learned the lessons.
    8. I love downhill long boarding (My best speed was 52mph on a canyon road (I wonder what the cars thought when I flew by when they could only legally do 30mph)).
    9. I've broken myself (including spinal, I have a lot of titanium in me) in the name of fun. It was fun until I broke myself.
    10. I've become (in my opinion) a modern day philosopher, so I'll leave you with two bits of advice I love to tell (especially to youngsters if they'll listen):
    -(this one I reiterated) Live each day as if it's your last, but, pay your bills, and use a condom just in case it isn't.
    -(This is one born of my mind, and I'm very proud of it) I have lived in dark places, both in this world and within my own mind. Make no mistake, monsters do exist. It's best to stay out of the dark.
    Well, that's it. I hope I chose good ones that show me (at lest as well as 10 things can). Life has been hard, but I don't let my pain destroy me, I've used it to better myself, and keep pushing forward. Everyday I'm thankful I wake up, and am at least here to try.

    -Loveless

    Thank you Misha.
    It's been tough, and I'm slightly supersized I'm still alive. Between my lust for thrills, and just life going crazy, I've almost died so many times (mainly this past year). But, getting back into flame working is a good balance for me. One I needed. lol.

    Glass can certainly fulfill the lust for thrills haha. The more you know, the more you'll want to know and the more you'll get sucked in. It's saved the lives of many of us here.
