Hey everyone! I’m Erin, I’m 24 and I live in CT with my mom, sister and two kitties. I’m a self-proclaimed book worm, geek and crazy chick.

I’ve done and seen a lot in my life. I went to Coast Guard boot camp but broke a bone in my foot so I was discharged, I was homeless for six months, did the college thing but dropped out for a lack of a better term because I hated the school where I attended. I’ve been drunk once in my life, I smoked weed once and hated it, but I don’t care if you smoke or drink. Just don’t make fun of me for my boring way of life. I’ve seen the affects of alcohol and I just don’t choose to live that life.

I work full time at Savers which is a thrift store. I’m currently training to learn the position of an assistant manager so that if the time arises, I can just take a position somewhere. I write about work sometimes. It’s stressful but some of my friends there are really awesome, so I talk about them.

I have the best boyfriend ever. I mean it. He’s my heart and soul. We don’t fight about anything. I talk about him just about in every entry, so if you don’t want to read about love, maybe you shouldn’t add me. We live a boring life in the eyes of others, but it’s just perfect for us. No drama. That’s our motto.

My father died on February 15th, 2010. It was sudden and my mom, sister and I watched as the paramedics attempted to resuscitate him in our living room. I live with the burden of replaying that in my mind on a daily basis and I write about his death a lot. It’s therapy for me to write about it. I repeat a lot of what I say in previous entries. If it gets to be too much, remove me from your friends. It’s all good.

I live in chronic pain. My digestive system is whacked, my joints ache and I’m always extremely exhausted. I don’t have my health under control at all. I try, but it doesn’t ever work. I’m starting up Slim Fast so that I can get the nutrition I need to feel better and I hope it works. I also lift weights. It’s an amazing stress reliever and so awesome to see your weights go up over time. I need to get back into it because it’s such a great thing to do.

I’m a music and book addict. My musical tastes are not limited to the following: Frank Sinatra (my favorite ever!), Reel Big Fish, Hanson, Barenaked Ladies, and Straight No Chaser. Books….I love them. I would marry books if I could. I guess I’m kind of a book hoarder, but it’s getting better because I now have a Kindle. I like inspirational romance (and Christian fiction), Amish novels, books about the medical field, chick lit and lots of other stuff. As I said, love books. I almost forgot to add that I’m learning German through Rosetta Stone. J

Football is my sport of choice. I love watching it, especially the New England Patriots. I like playing tennis and basketball too!

I’m conservative, but I have friends of all political backgrounds. I don’t really care about your opinions unless you start pushing them on me. I do have some liberal views. In fact, I read Annie On My Mind, a story about two lesbian girls that fall in love, and I loved it. I like to learn about the views of others, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with them. I’m not religious. I do believe in God, but I’m not religious at all because I’ve never felt comfortable in any church. Most church people are hypocrites and are faker than Santa Claus.

I’m sarcastic, silly and usually friendly. I do complain in my journal about my family drama, health issues and work. I love making new friends and learning things from people. Sometimes I post often, other times I disappear for a week or two. Just because I don’t comment all the time doesn’t mean I don’t read what you have to say.

Add me if you’d like.. Comment on this entry or on one of my journal entries, or even send me a message, whatever you prefer. Hope to hear from you soon.
