hello. i’m miss tukru. i’m 29 years old (turning thirty this summer) i live in a small town in southern england but i’m originally from finland, however i’ve lived here for the past eight years. i work in a toy shop during the day but at night i tumbl too much and run a little zine distro called VAMPIRE SUSHI and i write perzine called YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL and watch too much buffy the vampire slayer and eat cheesecake.
i have a boyfriend i live with and i’ve been with him for SEVEN YEARS (fuck that’s a long time) but i’m a queer cislady, i just happen to be in love with a cis boy, and he’s my first love too.. in case you were wondering.
i post a lot about zines & feminism & body image & queer / trans stuff, but also kitties, cutesy stuff, tattoos, ridiculous jewellery and fashion, knitting & craftiness, icky stuff, horror films, vampires, + doctor who and buffy and harry potter and true blood and whatever i happen to be into at the time. it varies but that’s a fairly accurate summary!
i’ve got a BA in photography but it’s not been put to much use since i graduated five years ago. i’m trying to do more art again; drawing, writing and photography. i mainly did self-portraits but my flat is really dark and tiny and messy so it’s difficult to set anything up and do proper pix. i suffer from mild depression and anxiety (i say mild because i don’t have nearly as bad as others and i’m coping pretty well, but it’s no fun when i have a bad spell and i take anti-depressants more or less daily, except when i forget / can’t be bovvered. and when i don’t i can tell the difference.) i’m at times very silly and have a dangerous sense of humour.
i previously had a tumblr called kissakerho which is finnish for kitty club. i felt like i needed a fresh start for 2012, and i also wanted to establish a better system tagging my posts and going back and editing the tags on 9275 post seemed like a stupid idea. and since i never delete anything (srsly, i’ve only ever deleted my myspace and my original twitter account. there’s about 10 old livejournals still floating about. i just DO NOT DELETE. i keep archives) so i decided to start a brand new tumblr blog..
i should probably go to bed any minute now because i have work in the morning and besides i can’t think of anything else to add to this for now.. i’ll start tumbling for real tomorrow. in the mean time, you can check out my archives at kissakerho & my 1st tumblr, yksisarvinen. or you could also talk dirty (or clean) to me if you’ve got any questions or just wanna tell me something for some reason.
good night, sweet peas.
XX TUKRU PERKELE
