I always get nervous with introductions, as I'm not quite sure what to say. Sort of like the the first day at a new school where everyone knows one another already and I'm still that person who needs to feel like there's a place for me to fit in. Oh, and I tend to ramble a lot, so apologies in advance, I usually don't know when to stop when nervous - as you can probably tell already.
I'm Amy, I'm 28 and in Adelaide. I have no children as of yet, but I am hoping to find a donor as a solo mother by choice. My reason for this: I'm asexual, and finding a way that that works in a romantic relationship, is quite often difficult. So, I'm looking into quite a few things right now, as well as Anonymous sperm donors and hopefully by November, I'll be a little more on my way.
My family has known that this is something I've been looking into for a long while now, and most are very supportive (sans the few old-fashioned crew members who believe it's too "new-agey" and ridiculous without a partner/husband). So that is a relief in my book.
I'm a writer, though I haven't yet completed my first book to be published, but until then, I am also going back to TAFE next year to study for my Advanced Diploma in Acting - hopefully. I still have the audition process to get through. If that falls through, I am going to look at another course, possibly to do from home especially since if I want to be prepared if I do conceive before then. Journalism is another fallback plan for me.
Currently, it is just me and my 5-year-old Golden Retriever. His name is Ori, and he has a Master's Degree in bed-hogging, pillow manipulative techniques, and emotional blackmail. He's also a champion mouse-hunter. Alas, he's a very poor conversationalist.
Before I drawl on any longer, I'll end this swiftly as I'm now running into the realm of bad jokes. So, hiya!
