Hi, I'm Caleigh, but on here I tend to go by rose or rosie. I'm 20 years old, Australian, and a DollDivine addict - I've had my premium account since mid 2014, but I've been using DD since 2012.
I live in a cute little country town in NSW, Australia. My mum and I moved here not long ago because my parents split up. My dad lives in Sydney, so I don't see him very often. I also have an amazing older sister who currently lives in Brisbane. My family also includes the pets; my cat Billy, and our dog Max, both of whom live with me and my mum.
Billy (my baby!!) is a ginger moggy, and the sweetest little thing you've ever seen. He's a rescue cat, I adopted him almost two years ago, but I had to beg my parents to let me get him. It's funny because he's fit into the family so well, and now we couldn't imagine life without him. Max is a golden retriever, and we've had him since I was eleven. He's not nearly as ( )own as American retrievers, he's more creamy-blonde because of his European descent. Personality wise, he's exaclty like Doug the Golden Retriever from Up- he may have just met you, but he already loves you.
I guess something pretty important you should know about me is that I have Aspergers Syndrome, OCD, and I also suffer from depression and anxiety (a whole plethora of problems). Consequently my life can be very difficult sometimes, so I may disappear from DD from time to time. If I do, don't freak out- it's likely I'll come back.
As well as making life difficult for me, my disorders also mean I have a hard time making friends. I'm a pretty awkward person, and I have a lot of trouble in social situations, so I'm not good at holding onto friends in real life. But I do really appreciate the friendships I've made on this website.
My main interest/hobby would have to be reading. Ever since I was a little girl I've been fascinated by stories. I've been an avid reader all my life; I love the power of words, and the magical journeys that books can take you on! I mainly read young adult fiction, which covers a pretty ( )oad range of genres. I love fantasy themes, and as the romantic that I am, a good love story is hard to resist. I can be a bit of a picky reader though, a book has to be well written for me to enjoy it.
The passion I have for words and stories means I have always been interested in wriitng a book of my own. My current goal in life is to write my novel and have it published. It's a pretty daunting task, especially since ideally the plan is for a 3 part series (yeesh!). You'll notice I post a lot of dolls of my characters from the novel here on DD. That's because I actaully got the idea for the whole thing when the LotR/Hobbit maker was first released. I made a group of four characters, and from that a story was born, which I've been slowly developing ever since!
So that's quite a lot of information about me!! But there's plenty of things I didn't mention, so to give you a better picture, here's a runthrough of some of my favourite things.
