For starters, I have very fond memories of the LiveJournal of old (I've been a Livejournal user since the beginning on various accounts). I've made many friends through LJ and if it wasn't for blogging, I probably wouldn't have a relationship with my boyfriend (of six years). Despite the fact that I can be very difficult to get along with, I love to meet new people and I love reading other people's blogs.
I currently live in Ohio, but I am trying to move to NYC or just outside of it after I finish this quarter at University.
I am a sideshow performer (escape artist, fire-eater, glass-walker, etc.) and a filmmaker. I do special effects make up, write, photograph, and other artsy things. If you are involved in any of the above, I'd probably like to read you.
I speak English, French, and Spanish in that order. I love languages and I intend to add German to the list soon.
I love animals and I gush over my pets. I have one dog, three rats, and 11 fish (it was twelve, but I'm currently grieving over the recent death of one).
Some of the bands and musicians that I enjoy are The Cure, Kiemsa, Emilie Autumn, Bella Morte, and Charlie Winston. I'm a complete and total film person. I've studied film, media, and animation in a college setting for the past six years. My favorite directors are François Truffaut, Guillermo del Toro, Martin Scorsese, John Waters, and Tim Burton. I love to read Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk (although, that's more of a love/hate relationship), P.N. Elrod, and Ray Bradbury. I love horror, science fiction, and general dark themes. I am a gamer chick and I play World of Warcraft, The Sims, Team Fortress 2, and many others. I also love my mohawk.
I'm not a drinker, a smoker, or a drug user. I've never even tried it, despite the fact that I am over the legal age for alcohol in the US. They are things that have just never interested me. I'm also in the process of going Vegan. I'm open to other people regardless of their interests and what they do, though.
I do not like ICP, close-minded people, arrogant people, Twilight, Avatar, people that refuse to watch foreign films because they don't want to "read," Wal-Mart (I say this because I have the tendency to complain about it), being broke all the time, most memes, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace (even though I have all three), animal abuse, poor grammar, and dishonest people.
The list can go on, but I'll stop there.
Who I want to read/meet
I am looking for people that have similar interests and dislikes that I have and that also write entries with content, even if they are short. I am looking for people with whom I can build some kind of relationship and will not care that I can be rather moody and disagreeable at times.
