My name is Paige, I'm 21 and from California. I posted in this group a couple months ago and started following a few journals that I really enjoyed, but it seems like everyone has stopped posting lately and I'm looking for some new stuff to read.
I have had my LJ for more than 4 years and have never failed to post at least once a week. I like to write about drinking, parties, friends, romantic escapades (I'm bisexual), work, places, and everyday life. I find people incredibly fascinating, so I always end up writing about all of the best ones that I meet, even if I only speak to them for a brief moment. I just finished my third year in college and will get my degree in Literature& Creative Writing (with a minor in Spanish) next year- but am currently living at home for the summer (in the desert). At the end of August I'm going to study abroad in Spain for six months, and I travel excessively in general (I spent last summer living in England, and all of that's in here too) so I always write about my travels as well.
What I really want in an LJ friend is their life: the excitement, accomplishments, and bad times too; I'm really partial to crazy partiers (because I'm one myself) and people who aren't afraid to bare it all-- bring on the vulgar, the sex stories, the grotesque, I love it. I don't add fanfic writers, people who write about politics, or people who only focus on the negative. I thrive on humor and never take anything too seriously, and I hope to find people who feel the same.
I'm first and foremost a fiction writer but I never post my fiction here. This is strictly autobiographical. I do post poetry from time to time and sometimes introspective shit but mostly it's just me trying to remember everything that happens in order to spin it into something more coherent later.
I have an eclectic taste. I love pop music: Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, anything with a great beat. I love all kinds of rock and am currently addicted to the Black Keys. The only TV show I watch is True Blood. I read just about everything but have a soft place in my heart for young adult novels: anything by John Green, Harry Potter of course, Phillip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy, and I'm just now finishing the Hunger Games series. I also love Neil Gaiman and random sci-fi stuff.
As far as movies, my favorites are Repo! the Genetic Opera, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Let the Right One In (the Swedish version), Labyrinth (and I'm a huge Bowie fan in general), Ghost World, Moulin Rouge, and Clueless (sort of a wild card, but I love it.) I guess you could say I'm into goth/macabre stuff, but I'm also annoyingly optimistic and happy most of the time.
Overall I'm just an ambitious girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and falls in love with too many things. And possibly drinks too much. But if you let me into your life you get all of mine back!
