Second and hopefully last post here - for a long time anyway.

Hi. I posted here a few weeks ago, so I apologize to post again. But since the turnover rate here seems pretty high, maybe someone else would be interested in adding me? Yeah, I dream big. I would still enjoy befriending a few new people, though. This is pretty much verbatim from another post I made to a completely different add-me community. I can't really think of a more creative way to "advertise" myself at the moment. Sorry. So...

I'm 23 (on the edge of becoming 24) and female. I live somewhere in the US with my partner (she's my fiancee actually) and two annoying cats. I'm currently unemployed; I used to work at a cafe, but I quit this past September. Unfortunately anxiety and depression seem to be holding me back from getting another job quite yet. I've had a really weird past; I was raised in what is essentially a cult (I'm an ex-Jehovah's Witness), and so I'm still dealing with a lot of the psychological effects of that.

My journal mostly consists of my current life experiences (usually deeper than just a run-down of the events of the day). I talk pretty frequently about religion from a secular perspective (I'm currently agnostic), but I'm not obsessed with that topic and I discuss other things as well. Despite that I'm a woman of few words offline, I do tend to let my guard down a lot and be rather verbose online - in both my posts and comments. So if that bothers you, I suppose I wouldn't be a good friend for you. I like to think what I write usually has a point, though.

Interests-wise... I'm not really much of a "fandom" person. I do enjoy watching movies, reading books (I'm attempting that 50 book challenge this year... again), music, art (admiring and studying it; I'm pathetically inartistic - at least in a visual sense), European history, and writing (usually short stories that you can be thankful will never be posted in my journal).

Anyway, I hope I didn't write this post solely for my own amusement. So if you'd like to add me, please comment here or in my journal. Thanks! :)
