My name is Britt.
My greatest aspiration in life is to grow up to be a crazy cat lady. Currently I am in training under my Meemaw, who is an excellent role model in this field.
I think consenting adults should be able to love and marry whoever they wish, regardless of race or gender. I just happen to be straight, but I did kind of make things more adventurous by marrying a Canadian. Whole different breed, that one.
I’m a feminist. That means I believe in equality for all genders. I firmly believe that instead of teaching our daughters how to cover up their boobs and to avoid drinking, we should teach our sons not to rape. I believe women working the same jobs as men, with the same experience, should receive the same pay. I believe that we need more women in government. Also, I love my power tools.
I have a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACE-JMC) and English Literature from Murray State University.
I taught high school English and Journalism for four years. I learned a lot. I learned that I hate public education in America. I learned that I went into teaching for the wrong reasons. I learned that I needed to get the hell out of that career if I wanted to preserve my sanity and be happy. I also learned that I am an excellent writing instructor.
I want a M.A. in English so I can teach online composition courses for colleges.
I am a gamer. I started role-playing on AOL in middle school. I’ve done every tabletop RPG under the sun. I have a fondness for Mechwarrior and Neverwinter Nights. I met my husband playing the (horrible) free mmorpg FlyFF. I was a hardcore raider and a guild master of a US Top 200 World of Warcraft guild. Some couples go out to the movies. My husband and I destroy internet dragons together as our bonding experience. Currently, we are fooling around with various games and eagerly anticipating WildStar’s release in Spring 2014.
I created and I wrote the webcomic See No Evil. Unfortunately, my artist quit, so I am currently just writing the damn story in a novelized form.
I am licensed to carry a concealed weapon and I have a Bersa Thunder .380. As a former teacher and a handgun owner, I am vehemently opposed to teachers carrying to school. I see absolutely no reason why civilians should ever own assault rifles. I believe that handgun ownership should be pretty strictly regulated but that weapons used for hunting are a whole different beast.
I don’t want to have children. Neither does my husband. Stop bugging me about it.
My head ain’t screwed on straight. That’s what my Sugarbandit (grandfather) always says. But being normal is boring anyway, so I like my life just the way it is.
