About Me


My Synes colors for letters and numbers

I graduated from Cartersville High School in May of 2000, went to North Metro Technical College from October 2000 to November 2001 sometime, then to Floyd College for my required courses. I'm currently attending the Art Institute of Atlanta for my Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts & Animation with an expected graduation date of Fall 2005.

I should probably include a little about my synesthesia. The definition of Synesthesia is "an involuntary joining in which the real information of one sense is accompanied by a perception in another sense." For me, personally, this means that when I hear sounds I also see colors and feel textures. This works with pain and pleasure as well. (Think of that what you will *wink*) Also, when I see letters or numbers I see colors as well. Examples of all of these would be, for instance, when I see the word C-A-T, I see dark blue/bright yellow/yellow-orange. When I hear a soprano, I see a thin, sharp pale yellow voice that gets paler and thiner as it gets higher. The opposite goes for bass voices, which are dark brown and very soft and thick, and get bigger as they get deeper. I love deep voices. When I've been walking all day and my feet ache, I see the ache more then I feel it. This is unfortunate, because I suffer from stress migranes quite often. (I'll worry about just about anything) No Synesthete's synesthesia is exactly alike, while my As are yellow, someone else's may be red, and yet another's green. Synesthesia is rare, 1 in every 25,000 people have it, so I love to hear from people who have it as well. One day I'll make a page dedicated to Synesthesia and links. (Till then, check out my Synes colors of the alphabet and numbers to the left.)
