Seriously, I can't summarize my interests, and if I could, I'd be ashamed to.
I will disclose this much:
-I live in Virginia--not West Virginia, not Northern Virginia--Virginia, although I should have been born in North Carolina--the people are a LOT nicer and smile more often, and they don't flip you the bird for going 80 in the fast lane.
-I'm 28--old for most people on LJ. All this has meant for me is I drink more coffee now and wear my big boy pants. This means my journal is 100% teen angst-free.
-I'm not married, and I don't have kids. Maybe one day, but not for now.
-I've traveled some, but I recommend if you can't keep it up, don't start--it's addictive, and feeling trapped sucks.
-I do government work that is confidential, which means I can't have a camera phone, which means I'm doomed to always have a crappy cell phone.
-If I had my choice, I would gladly live in the UK, although I'm not un-American.
-I like to be active here, but I'm too honest to lead you on--I have a life and cannot update or read/comment every waking moment. If you are a teenie bopper looking for greater than 150 comments (not including your own) every post, I think you should continue the search for the perfect LJ friend.
-I have finished my baccalaureate studies, started and temporarily quit two Masters programmes, and hope to re-start the first one I began--my seminary degree.
-I try not to be egocentric, but my journal has been so un-egocentric in the past, I'm taking a more me-slanted approach this time, which means some things may be unsuitable for younger readers.
-I absolutely hate MySpace and will not network with anyone there. I do have a Facebook and enjoy it though.
-I don't have a friends-only post on my journal, so you can just add me here if the mood strikes you. I'm open to anyone, unless you think you can come to my turf and argue with me about my beliefs. Healthy discussion is welcome; brooding and contempt are not.
-In my journal/comments, you can expect open-mindedness and kindness, all the time, every time. I enjoy long-term relationships. The LJ friends I have have been my friends since forever, and I want more like them. If you cut and run, on to the next entry please.
-I am in a very long distance relationship, and it will come up from time to time.
-I am open to becoming good friends and chatting on IM as friendships develop. I am not here to be impersonal. If you are free with your ideas and feelings, I'm happy to get to know you better.
