Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
One year ago to the minute*, I gave birth to a baby boy. I discovered that I could love two children just as much as I loved the one that I had up until this very moment one year ago, and that I could continue to be myself even in spite of having more than one child… or, well, one to begin with. In other words, I didn’t have to be any less of a geek after his birth! And in the year that passed, I became a lot better at feeling more comfortable in my own skin.
The intense itching that came with the last trimester of that pregnancy was worth it, and I would do it all over again to have the beautiful little boy that is one year old today.
Never mind the fact that I am happy with two kids, though!

At first, I didn’t even think I was going to like Emilie Autumn because she didn’t look like the kind of singer (or in this case, musician) that I would normally find myself listening to… yeah, yeah, I know. Can I even say that? But still. A couple of days ago I decided to give her music a listen, and I have not gone back since. One wouldn’t think that the violin were capable of such amazing sound, but she is seriously good at what she does, and it shows in all of her songs. She’s also the kind of person that encourages you to be yourself — I mean, look at what she wears in her hair and the kinds of clothes she wears. For those of you that are familiar with the music in the popular Castlevania games, you’ll love her if you’re into that sort of thing… that was probably what drew me to her to begin with. And even if you aren’t, you’ll probably like her if you’re into classical music. So far, my favorite songs are “A Cure” and “Leech Pit”. Just by listening to the melodies, you can tell she puts a lot of emotion and thought into her songs. And it’s better than a lot of what’s out there right now.
I also want her book for Christmas. I heard she had one published in 2010!
Now granted, the video that goes with it may be a little weird if you’re not already into this kind of music… but I digress. It reminds me of Castlevania, which is enough for me to like it — that, and she’s wearing those hair falls that I am in love with but have yet to own any like. You know, the curly ones?
Yes, I’m a geek. However, I’m sure most of you are already aware of that…
