Hi! I joined this website a few months ago, I think, but I hadn't done more than read other people's posts until yesterday. I don't really wanna give my real name, for anonymity's sake, so you can call me Elizabeth. I'm (probably) a lesbian; honestly, if I'm bisexual, there's a huge disparity between my attraction to men and to women, but let's not get into that. A couple of things about me: The one thing that gives my life meaning is reading - I've run out of bookshelf space in my room and have resorted to stacking books on top of them, stacking books on my desk, and stacking books on the floor. The authors I like are...infinite, but I mostly read fiction, unless I'm reading feminist texts, and some authors I like are Virginia Woolf, Patricia Highsmith, Alan Hollinghurst, Donna Tartt, Dazai Osamu, Lillian Faderman, Mary Renault, Sarah Waters, Thomas Harris, Qiu Miaojin, Charlotte Bronte, Adrienne Rich, Sylvia Plath (her poems destroy me), Emily Dickinson (also for her poetry), and......countless others. I also love good music. David Bowie is a favorite of mine - I like listening to Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars on my record player, and my favorite song from that album is Lady Stardust. (Which is also the song that introduced me to his music in the first place.) It's also nice to know that he was bisexual - it makes me feel connected with history, I suppose. Some other musicians I like are Cigarettes After Sex, Hozier, Tracy Chapman, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Lana del Rey, Mitski, and Marika Hackman. I really like dramatic, dark, classical piano music, too. Anyway, it's nice to be on here, and nice to meet everyone! I hope I can gain a better understanding of myself through using this forum.
