Hiya

Lately I've been a little tired of facebook. It's fairly public, and sometimes I get in the mood to write a little something that's a bit too personal for such a public sphere. Also, facebook encourages things like quick skims of witty status updates and surface-y concerns about the worlds of your 'friends'. Sometimes I feel like communicating to people who want to go beyond all that. I mosey over back to my LJ, which I've had for a few years, but all of my friends from home who used to write on this thing have pretty much abandoned this site.

So, yes, hey - that's why I'm here.

Ok, about me:

I live in England, though I'm originally from Dallas. I love where I am now, but occasionally I miss home. I'm close to turning 25. My bachelors is in Music Performance, and I'm close to finishing my dissertation for my Masters degree in Popular Music Studies. So... I kind of like music.

I used to be a real snob about it, but in recent months, I think I've generally become cool with just about any kind of music. I realized this was true when I started watching things like X-Factor and listening (and somewhat enjoying) top 40 radio whilst doing household chores. I don't think I've ever done that in my life until now.

I read, I listen to music, I record little ditties that fumble their way onto my guitar, I ride the bus everywhere, I hang with friends, hide away in coffee shops. I'm deeply religious, though if you knew me in person I'd generally be cautious in talking about it until I knew you'd be cool hearing about it. I'm nice, I'm quiet/loud, I love a good laugh, I get crushes on guys.

Unfortunately I'm fairly NOT interested in things like... hmm... well, to name a few 'disinterests': Glee (yes, the show), anything to do with Vampires, anything in the form of a soap opera on TV, adults who ignore their kids, beans, politics, the news, Republicans or Democrats, Big Brother, reality TV, people who are loud in libraries, people who build and live their entire lives out on internet social networks.

(Therefore, if you like any of that stuff, you probably don't want to add me.)

I do like TV, and I like films, but I don't think that the genre of shows or movies I like really matters. I don't really feel like my life revolves around one area of interest. I do stuff, I live life. On the whole, I just feel normal. So, if that's how you feel most of the time, add me. :-) I like normal people who just try to get through life, one day at a time.

That's it. Oh, and for those that care: I am female, I am straight, I am single. Most likely any relationship formed through LJ will lead to no physical contact, but if you want to live out a dream that one day we just might meet, that's fine with me!
