Darcy Russel

I'm a twenty-one years old and female. I'm a single child with a sister I adopted myself and step-siblings I don't particularly know. For most of my life I've been obsessed with dogs (of which I now have one, an amazingly lazy Jack Russell Mix, yes, I am well aware of the insanity in that). I've grown up half in the mid-west and half in the south and I frankly identify more as a southerner most days.

I'm also decently liberal, barring a few random issues, and have a complete belief in the powers of humans as humans. As for my writing...well, I'm more of a creative writer. I'm new to even the idea of writing articles, but I do try my best to write things that are engaging.
