    Vanity

    I'm no materialist at all.  I can almost do with what others throw away.  I even think that recycling is some kind of moral duty in a world that is wasting at an enormous speed.  Years ago I bought my cupboards and other furniture in thrift shops.  Solid...

    I am comfortable in knowing I don't have it quite figured out yet. I don't wish to define it, but for now (even with little experience) I am okay saying I'm bisexual.
