I'm Eve. Yep. I'm definitely more Eve than you. As any respectable Kentuckian Goth, I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and lived there for the first 18 years of my life. I used to live in a box otherwise known as the Schottenstein Residence Hall of the Columbus College of Art and Design, and then I moved into another box known simply as University Village. I'm currently being a double major loser geek while living with 3 girls you wish you could have sex with, and 3 wonderfully evil cats that'll rip and tear your balls off. Make no mistake; they've been trained to kill.

This profile is being lame, so here's an essay some 12-year-old (Charlotte Aldebron) wrote:

What the American Flag Stands For

The American flag stands for the fact that cloth can be very important. It is against the law to let the flag touch the ground or to leave the flag flying when the weather is bad. The flag is to be treated with respect. You can tell just how important this cloth is because when you compare it to people, it gets much better treatment. Nobody cares if a homeless person touches the ground. A homeless person can lie all over the ground all night long without anyone picking him up, folding him neatly and sheltering him from the rain.

School children have to pledge loyalty to this piece of cloth every morning. No one has to pledge justice and equality and human decency. No one has to promise that people will get a fair wage, or enough food to eat, or affordable medicine, or clean water, or air free of harmful chemicals. But we all have to promise to love a rectangle of red, white, and blue cloth. Betsy Ross would be quite surprised to see how successful her creation has become. But Thomas Jefferson would be disappointed to see how little of the flag's real meaning remains.

Oh yeah, and here's a slightly less Photoshopped version of my icon, if you actually want to know what my reflection in a filthy mirror looks like:
