My name is Emily. I'm 24, from Maine.
I've been on LJ for like six years now but really haven't been posting much lately, so I'm trying to get back into the habit and I need some new friends!
Some things you might want to know about me:
-I live with my boyfriend, Chris; our daughter, Julia who is 18 months old now (time flies!); and our cat, Creature, who drives me crazy.
-On the weekends I work as a CNA, which if you don't know, is at the very bottom of the nursing field totem pole, and I have kind of a love-hate relationship with my job.
-One of my goals is to go back to school to be an RN.
-I am a really positive person, for the most part, but I complain a lot. I'm working on changing that.
-Music is pretty big for me. I love it all, but metal will always have a place in my heart.
-Right now I am listening to Rush, Between the Buried and Me, Dream Theater, Sikth, and Lady Gaga.
-I LOVE art, and I really wish that I was more creative, myself. If you paint, sketch, draw, sculpt, or are into photography or digital art, chances are I will love you.
-I'm a libertarian (NOT to be confused with "liberal"). I respect everyone's opinion, though. Just don't be an a-hole about it.
-My guilty pleasures are reality tv and celebrity gossip, among other things.
-I have not, nor probably ever will read any of the Twilight series or seen the movies.
You don't need to meet any specific criteria to add me, I'm open to friends of all shapes and sizes and I enjoy reading all sorts of content. It's almost impossible to offend me, but I have relatively little patience for racism and homophobia- there is no need for that kind of negativity! Otherwise, add away. xoxo.
