Hi. I've never posted to an add-me community before, so I feel a little strange writing a "want ad" for friends. But I just started a new journal and would enjoy getting to know some people. So please add me if I seem interesting or nice. I don't know how interesting I am, but I am nice though. I promise. :)

I'm 23 and female. I live in the US.

I've had a pretty strange life. I was raised a Jehovah's Witness by two fanatical JW parents, which basically means I was raised in a cult. (And I probably came to your door once to proselytize and you threatened to sic your dog on me if I ever came back, haha.) I left the organization by choice when I was almost 20, but I'm still dealing with a lot of the psychological effects of it, especially since my family are still JWs and so they're required to completely shun me now. (But at least I can celebrate my birthday now I guess...? Heh.) These days I'm wary of organized religion in general, but I'm accepting of other religious people as long as they don't preach to me. I suppose I'm sort of spiritual, but not really religious. I'm agnostic I guess.

I share a tiny apartment in the city with my partner (we're engaged so she's actually my fiancee) and two cats. I'm currently unemployed; I worked at a cafe for awhile, but I quit a few months ago because my depression and social anxiety were getting too bad. I need to start job-hunting soon I guess, but basically I'm just trying to recover and take a break right now. I'm not always depressing though, I swear. :)

I try to read at least one book a week (I read a lot of fiction and non-fiction, especially if it's related to history; I'm reading some existentialist/philosophical stuff right now, which means my brain is complete mush after reading Kierkegaard, ahaha), but I'm sort of slacking on that recently, unfortunately. I watch movies pretty frequently, but I don't watch much television. I guess I'm sort of boring when it comes to "fandom"-related stuff. I enjoy music a lot, but I won't bother listing all of my favorite artists here.

Anyway, I'm inclined to ramble, so I'll stop. Add me if you'd like; I'll add you back. :)
