Who is freckledknees?

Hi, I’m Sarah Kraus. Honestly, I’m not the best at writing self-summarizing paragraphs, so, for the sake of simplicity, let’s just list some things I think is important you should know.

– Grew up in a semi-conservative town just north of Dallas. Allen, TX. You’ve probably never heard of it, but it exists, I swear.

– Opted out of going to college directly out of high school to be a Chinese linguist in the Navy. Then opted out of staying in the Navy because of conflicting moral values on both personal and ethical grounds.

– I’m queer. So is half of the mother’s side of my family. Genetics? Mayyybe so, but it doesn’t matter either way. That’s just how I am :)

– Coffee addict. I love it. Triple soy latte’s – delicious. Oddly enough, it has no effect on me, but I just like the taste and the atmosphere of coffee shops. It’s more of a daily ritual than an addiction, actually.

– I absolutely love to sing and play/learn instruments. I learned the guitar mainly to accompany my voice, but now I am completely happy with just playing and not singing. I’m still working on piano, but it’s difficult cause I hardly ever have one around. Maybe when I stop moving around so much, I’ll get one.

– There’s a lot of things I don’t know. Any plan or decision I ever make ends up changing in some major aspect. I never can figure out what I want. Just recently, I’ve accepted this. No use in fighting it anymore. I’m not gonna continue making plans. I figure, as long as you know who you are and have a firm grasp on your values, that will guide you to where you need to be.

– I love to learn. I love school. I love science. I love languages. I love creativity and spontaneity.

– I think the biggest impact you can have on changing our environment is in how you eat. I strongly support shopping at farmers markets, buying organics, or starting your own garden.
