Hiya! 👋🏽 I’m Layla, some randomness about me:
read my first 500 page book in 2nd grade.
found out I am an INFJ a few years ago and it explained a lot- I’m basically an extroverted introvert & might not come across as shy or guarded bc I am a socially anxious talker. I also know things intuitively, & often struggle with how to explain that.
I became a vegetarian around 8 or 9 after doing a school project on rainforest deforestation linking it to cattle farming. I wanted to be a horticulturist/botanist back then & I think young Layla would be pretty thrilled at my current home and indoor/outdoor plant projects – I now have around 80 houseplants and am growing a 3/4 acre organic native meadow.
Also when I was a kid I had an all white deaf cat named Pishi Sefit (Farsi for white cat 😹) that caught a robin, I gave the robin a dollhouse bed and blanket hoping it would feel better. I woke up the next day & my parents told me it flew away… years later they confessed it died I cried & still have not forgiven the lie. And now I have lots of bird feeders, still cry for days over dead birds & bury them in my meadow.
A few of my favorite movies are I heart huckabees, amelie, barefoot contessa (w/ Ava Gardner).
I’m double jointed all over, this was all good until I spent a few months in pain not being able to lift a water pitcher or walk bc of a snapping hip & got diagnosed w/ehlers danlos hypermobility type. I still randomly injure myself just sitting or sleeping and I no longer go around lifting big boxes and bolts of fabric all by myself. Hot water bottles, arnica, wrist braces, and pain meds help a lot!
If I could travel anywhere it would be Brazil – specifically Fox de Iguazu falls the largest waterfalls in the world in the middle of a rainforest 🤗
I have more friends online than in real life… is this normal?!
I speak three languages but only read/write in two
I’m Libra sun, Scorpio rising
