Seven is a special number. It can be found in fairy tales, there are seven deadly sins, seven holy virtues, in Nanbudo we have seven forces, and so on. I was given an assignment by Alcessa. Quite a task. I was listed among seven bloggers that have to divulge SEVEN RANDOM TRUTHS about themselves. Some of my truths, I guess, have already been revealed. Either intentionally or by chance. Now I will try to write my seven down... will here appear sins, forces, magic? Well, let's see what comes out...
I am individualistic, even reclusive. I have been such as far as I can remember. Lonesome wolf. Well, I am an only child after all. Sometimes, I face problems in communication. I do not know how to open myself or how to approach people. I can even choose very wrong approach. I do not trust others easily. Finally, I can appear cold and distant, despite the fire burns beneath my surface and I just do not know how to show it. There are a few people only I can really attach on. I have a few friends, but they mean something to me. Also, I have not been in love that often. Yet when I emotionally attach, the grip and the passion hold strong. Too strong, perhaps.
I love travelling. Individualistic and reclusive as I am, I have done most of my trips alone. Ireland, Iceland, Finland. Very interesting one was Iceland in 2003. It is true that I stayed there with my Icelandic hosts, but I did a round trip through the country completely alone. I will never forget how I got lost in the midst of sharp lava field. Close to the place called Dimmu Borgir. And I found my way back well, as you can see.
Writing is my main expression, my art, my love. I read Hamlet at the age of 12. I wrote my first play at the age of 15. Romantic tragedy in verse inspired with Byron's poetry, with the lay Parisina. My first more serious and also published play I wrote at the age of 17. All in all, I write much better than I talk. I can write much more than I tell. In writing, I can be extremely extroverted and personal.
I did not drink alco until the beginning of last year. The first real thing I drunk was Salmiakki Koskenkorva; black and truly Finnish vodka I brought from that land. Latter, I carried on with some sweet cocktails, rum or malibu coke. The taste is what I like, and it makes me a bit more relaxed: that's all. I still cannot stand neither wine nor beer. And I have never been seriously drunk so far; just slightly.
Mornings are something I do not like. I am not a morning person for sure as I have problems with getting up, no matter when I go to sleep. Night is my time. I can stay awake long into the night, I enjoy the peace and quiet.
Metal music and metal subculture is something I got into quite late, in my early twenties. Before metal, I have already been listening alternative things; mainly rock. Very peculiar detail about me is, perhaps, that I was listening to classics when my friends were into Nirvana and Guns N'Roses. I never watched MTV as we did not have the programme at home. But metal and alternative have become the closest to me. Within metal, I like languages other than English. Norwegian can sound really sexy. Otherwise I put a lot of stress on good lyrics.
My style. Indeed, good theme. Very casual. Undergroundish. My colours are black, red and olive-green; yet black would be the leading. It calms me down, somehow. Well, if I put on olive-green, my eyes glow a bit more as they are also olive-green... I do not wear make-up often: I prefer natural look. I do not have earrings, but I have always liked silver rings. I have two very dear to me - both I bought myself. One with a black stone is from Iceland, the other represents a bear and it comes from Finland. Info for Alcessa: I wanted to get a ring with the moose - but it was too expencive for me. Some time ago, I have been wearing the famous One Ring as a devoted Tolkien's fan. Nope, I did not vanish. Now it rests in my chambers. For metal events and evenings, my style becomes a bit more feminine; I would wear corsets and skirts.
Now I suppose I have to encourage another seven to reveal their random truths. Well, if they feel like. Yet I will choose only the bloggers from my list; except Alcessa, of course. It won't be seven, but nevertheless. Thus, I give the torch to:
