Joined 6 years ago from That little rambunctious spot in the back of your mind :)




Hi, my name's Rachael. I'm a Puerto-Rican, Florida-born, homeschooled high school dual enrollment student--I'm semi-genius and I love to learn. Edit: I've decided to just call myself a genius outright, as I have lately realized that, like my father, brother, and sister, I am autistic (many autistic people are, in fact, geniuses).

I have two younger siblings (hence the name of toys-everywhere) and I love music, food, and poetry; to name only a few interests. I enjoy writing, and learning. I am a very eclectic, (I would say) interesting, and moderately or most-of-the-time cheerful punk.

I have an aversion to even numbers which seems to be a hereditary mindset; my mother and grandfather have the same. I LOVE shrimp, but I can't bear to see them with their little legs and eyes and tails on, because they just lie there on their side, staring at me so pitifully, as if to say, "You Horrible Horrible, EVIL PERSON!!!!How DARE you eat me!!!!" I am an expert diaper changer, despite my avoidance of responsibility when doo-ty calls. Of late, I have been trying to learn to roller skate so that I can join my roller-derby league when I am old enough. I have only gone skating a few times, and I always say that I am NOT falling backwards, it's just the ground coming up behind me. I also have a growing interest in the MMA, and am currently searching for a way to satisfy that desire.

My dad has always told me that I am a vegetarian at heart, because of my disgust at the fat on meat. I find strips of fat utterly repulsive, and in no way am I referencing human obesity-- I just can't stand the texture, taste, and appearance of fat on cuts of meat. I have a tendency to randomly burst into song when I see that a life situation fits a lyric, in spite of my dislike of musicals, and I am a devoted lover of quotes. I love to meet and socialize with people, but I especially like to be alone as well. When it comes to teaching or learning about anything, I am always more than game, so if you have something up for discourse, let me know! :)

Some of my all-time favorite quotes at the moment;

This world that is so hard, this life that must end in death, are yet rich in the beautiful and the strange. - Andrew Lang

"I prefer being alone when I create. I generally have a pretty formulated direction and vision but 'Me' and 'Myself' generally get in the way and ultimately piss 'I' off. The 3 of us rarely agree on anything." --Klayton of Celldweller

Notice the difference between what happens when a man says to himself, "I have failed three times," and what happens when he says, "I am a failure." - S.I. Hyakawa

One of the rarest things a man ever does is to do the best he can. - Josh Billinger

One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it. - Sidney Howard

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person. - W. Somerset Maugham

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes." They will say, "Women don't have what it takes." - Clare Booth Luce

#1 Stay three steps ahead of him, #2 protect yourself at all times, #3 don’t ever just give up. --Shannon Fowler

If you stay still, you're givin' up. Don't ever stay still and don't ever give up. --Shannon Fowler
