Hello, everyone! I have been using LJ since 2003, and have had various accounts through the years. I just recently created this account and I am looking for new friends. I don't like adding people I know in person to my livejournal because I like to use this medium as a means to be completely honest & raw; I find adding people in my life here often forces me to filter my thoughts and I hate it. I'm willing to share old LJ account names if anyone is interested, but they're dark and heartbreaking & there's a reason I no longer use them.
My name is Alyssa. I'm 24 years old. I live in Michigan. I am a sales representative for a company in the pet industry. I travel each week for my job, and I am fascinated by casual interactions and encounters with people throughout my day. I plan to use my new journal as a means to write about the happenings of my life. My entries will read more like a story than a recap of my day. I'm looking for people from all walks of life that I can get to know and will have a desire to get to know me, as well.
There is a chance I may write about something that offends others. I make mistakes and I learn from them. Sometimes, I don't learn from them immediately. You'll see me write about my dates, places I've visited, restaurants I've eaten at, people I meet along the way. I'll also use my LJ to write out my thoughts when I need to make sense of them. It's never really a guarantee as to what I'll post.
Some of my favorite things are sushi, long conversations on the phone, making new friends, my cats, traveling for work (I am somewhere new almost every week), making lists, and all things creative and artistic. My favorite artist is Audrey Kawasaki. My music taste varies from day to day and there's something for me in each genre. Same goes for movies. I don't "fangirl" anything, I don't believe.
Basically, if you think you'd like a new friend, please leave me a message. I can promise I will always be honest with you. I'm good with leaving comments and will update my blog regularly.
