Getting to know me - and you?  
Appropriated this from antesqueluz, a "getting to know you" meme. 
1. Call me: Tkeyla or, you know, Margot. That's my real name.
2. For a living, I: don't do anything right now. Well, I'm in school or I will be again in August. I am starting my own freelance editing service which isn't off the ground yet. Oh but you should visit my very cool website! You'll find it here: Perfecting Your Project. Tell your friends. I need the money! :-)
3. I share my life with: 6 dogs and my sister. 
4. My musical soul mate is: Led Zeppelin
5. My current [celebrity] crush is: Steven J. McGarrett, God help me
6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: Well, H50Land on DW. We always need more people to play! Is that what this question means?
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: beige - I can be fairly indecisive. And I'm a Gemini so I tend to blend in with those around me. Plus I don't want to choose one of the bright colors because I would hurt the feelings of all the colors I didn't choose.
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I have no idea. I guard against projecting myself onto to fictional characters. If I wasn't careful, I'd identify too strongly and that would come to no good.
9. Fandoms I frequent: Star Trek (TOS and Reboot mostly), Hawaii 5-0, recently The Avengers but I don't know them well enough to contribute.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your raccoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off?: I get overwhelmed with social anxiety. I try really really hard not to let it keep me prisoner but sometimes I I'm not stronger than it is. Hopefully you won't be too mad that I cancelled. If we've been friends for very long, you'll kind of expect it, sadly.
11. List five things you can see right now: Our part lab Zumi, our Newfoundland Kashmir, our Old English Sheepdog Hannah, our black lab Pudge, our mixed breeds YoQuera and Layla. Well, that's six but they are all in the living room.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Show the world that boundaries are artificial constructs. No national boundaries, no wars. All the money spent on armaments can be used for food and education and medicine.

Crushing on McGarrett is totally acceptable. :-)

Your answer to #12 that would be a very nice world!

Don't see a problem at all with McGarrett being your celebrity crush!

I didn't know your real name until now! Hello, Margot. That's a lovely name. So sophisticated.

I didn't know that you struggle with anxiety, too! No wonder you are so willing to deal with my overwhelmed-ness. Do you have days that it just takes all of your strength to get up and get going with life? I do. I listen to people talk about their huge accomplishments (like the woman at work who ran the Boston Marathon) and I think, "Just being here is like running a marathon for me, but no one realizes it."

If you ever need someone to talk to, here I am! I've probably experienced it! I am so much better at "talking" online than in RL. I like this little community here at LJ because I feel like the "real me"--the one who is hidden under the layers of anxiety.

Wow, you didn't expect to get my life story, did you?

One last thing: Good luck with the freelance editing! I'm a technical editor by trade, so I understand that, too! Except I don't freelance.
