Age: 26 (Mental age: about 18-20)
Occupation: Certified Nurse's Assistant (CNA) at the local Long-Term Care facility (i.e. nursing home). I work night-shift. ♥
Residence: Big town/smallish city in Nebraska. The crossroads of the midwest.
Fandoms: Non-anime: Buffy/Angel, Harry Potter, Doctor Who/Torchwood, Glee. I'm interested in several others, but they haven't reached the level of obsession these have.
Anime: Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Fruits Basket, Ouran High Host Club, Kuroshitsuji, Gundam Wing... There's a WHOLE bunch more, but these are just the ones I've shown any spark of
Games: The Sims 2, The Sims 3, The Sims: Medieval when it comes out... I'm not much of a gamer, otherwise. I love games, I just suck at them, & I'm impatient. & don't like dying.
About me: I'm an eternal optimist, & hopeless romantic. I'm single, & will probably remain that way. I'm an electronics geek. I love technology. I use semi-colons & ellipses & ampersands & parentheses when I write. I am grammatically correct, & I know how to use spell-check. I am a writer, even if I'm not published. I am an artist, even if I think I can't draw very well. I was raised by a 3rd generation English teacher, so I have an inherent love of the English language (as well as a couple foreign ones). I use emoticons A LOT. I am always trying to better myself, & my current project is becoming a better artist. I'm very bubbly & happy, but I'm also fascinated with things that are considered dark & taboo. H.P. Lovecraft comes to mind.
What you might find in my journal:
- Anything & everything fandom-related. Which fandom? Pick one from the list. Or a new one I have yet to discover, or maybe rediscover. There will inevitably be homoerotica mentioned. I like slash, femmeslash, yaoi, BoyLove, whatever you call it, so that'll get mentioned at some point.
- Real life happenings I want to write down for posterity. From hanging out with a friend & what we discussed, to a trip out of town, etc. Things I'll want to re-read later. It's a journal, so that's what I usually use it for.
- Talk about money. Usually what I spent money on, really.
- No really serious posts, generally. Even when I have Serious Thoughts, I tend to give them a humorous, optimistic spin.
I can't always read my flist on a timely basis, so I may not see everyone's journal posts. But I'll try to make some comment on entries I feel I can contribute to somehow, & I'm always willing to lend a shoulder or electronic ear. If you think any of this sounds remotely interesting, go ahead & friend me. I'd like a comment here mentioning something we have in common, or why you're friending me, just to be polite. I'll friend you back. Very simple & painless. ♥
