The beauty of hive,everything on the internet, and life is we can voluntarily choose where we want to be a part of and even create the one we wanted to.
And I am not going to come into someone's community and lecturing them with semantics and what not 🙂 since that is really uncalled for given that I am not interested the first place. That being said, I am glad to join this community because I identify as a lady 😉
I wrote a short introduction in the server but I don't think that is suffice. First, thanks to @silversaver888 who got me into the community. I am very terrible at introducing myself but I will try.
First, I grew up very tomboy-ish. I like all things that boys like. Growing up, I never have any female friends because I think they were too complicated and I could never understand them. I would rather climb trees, learn how to fix cars with my dad and enjoy little fights and play with guns.But my mom played an important role to teach me how to cook, sew, and all things about being a girl. I also grew up pretty much told that merit is important and that is above genders and social background. I never cared about my identity until I went into university where I learned that merit is not everything and my gender means something.
When I first started having a girl as a friend and stayed for quite sometimes, my mom asked me " how come?"
That surprised me too because I barely had any female friends who was very close. I do have female friends but they are mostly older than me and not my age. I like talking to older women because they have wisdom and lived the life longer than I do. I like listening their stories and experiences in life.
As of now, I am 23 years old. Before this age, I spent my late teenage days fooling around. I led my life around the idea that I don't want to become like my birthmother who is the epitome of a modern successful woman. I was afraid that I would be just like her, neglectful but proud of her worldly achievements. And when you are afraid of something, sometimes it becomes a reality. I spent sometime hanging out with the wrong crowds with wrong mindset. Until I realized, I became so unhappy and I became something I feared and hated.
Then I realized I wasn't taught to be that way. My mother, the one who raised me, taught me that balance is achievable as a woman. She doesn't need to label herself anything. To me, she is a great mother, great businesswoman, elegant and smart. She is capable of taking care of herself and still become a great mother,and that's why, she is someone who I wish to become when I grow old.
And since late 22, I started rediscovering myself by exploring the more feminine side of me. Thus why, I find myself enjoying homemaking and homestead content. Other than those, I have so many hobbies that probably this page won't fit. To name a few, I enjoy reading book, learning new programming language, learning biohacking, trade cryptocurrency, cooking, learning new investment instruments, testing new open source software and products, traveling, learning about guns, sport, nootropics,and art.
By my actual profession, I am a freelance copywriter and translator. However, I aspire to expand into junior dev and sys admin role. Other than that, I am also still in the process of finishing my degree in English literature, had I not fuck around and lost, I probably could have finished it by now.
On hive, I have been a curator with ocd since late 2017 to present. Beside that, I also manage twitter account of DIY Hub and anything Public Relation related to DIY hub. Been into so many projects joined and left but those two seem to be sticking and I love the community there.
Finally, I used to shy showing my face and everything. I am generally a bit paranoid and I care so much about my privacy and anonimity, but a friend of mine said " it's 2020 and acceptable to dox yourself" so here I am. Before I write other unnecessary information, this is my introduction and I am hoping to see more cool content from all of you ladies.
