Just a green-eyed gal.

Just a green-eyed gal.

My name is Nicole, but both online and off I go by Cole and other variations there-of (Nicolean and Oscar). Online, I have gone by the names anaesthetic and LadyCrow. I was born on the last day of May in 1986, which makes me kind of your stereotypical Tiger/Gemini.

I am currently living in Central Wisconsin with my two cats, Phantom and Goliath. They’re approximately five years old. Phantom is a beautiful Russian Blue and Goliath is a silky domestic shorthair in black. I’m a freelance writer by day and a blogger by night; although, those time periods are flexible because I keep odd hours.

I’ve used writing as an outlet over the years, which is part of how this site started. You can see poetry and a few short stories at Lyrical Musings. Since becoming a freelance writer, writing has lost some of the sparkle for me. You can ask me, but I do, and always will, tell you that I’m not an artist. One of my artsier hobbies is that of web design and maintenance. However,  I tend to revel more in the coding side of that. I have found that I excel creatively only within some guidelines which, if you really think about it, isn’t that creative.

I also like to sing (and dance around the house when no one is looking). I am a fan of games of all kinds: board and card games and video games. Game nights have become something of a thing in my circle of friends, and I typically host. I cook because I like eating, but I hate cooking. I enjoy a good book but would rather veg out with a movie if I’m tired.

One of the most important aspects of my life in my interest in music and I spend much time with my headphones on or listening to music on the computer.  My favorite for quite some time was Metallica. My favorite artists include Pat Benatar, Metallica, Cold, Sarah Mclachlan, Journey, Queen, Within Temptation, Pink, Matchbox Twenty and A Perfect Circle.
