hi.

hi friends. here are some things about me.
  • i like to dye my hair unnatural colors, but i'm letting it stay natural for now since it didn't seem to like bleach very much.
  • i like books. i read voraciously.
  • i've wanted to be a published author since i can remember, and that is still my goal. career-wise, i'd like to be an in-house editor for a publishing house.
  • i love cats [and they love me].
  • i'm nearly 22 and a freshman in college. i'm also living in the dorms, which combined with shyness and a little agoraphobia makes for a hell of a time.
  • i am not presently in therapy right now nor on medication, but i am making my best effort to come to terms with mental illness and reduce my symptoms. 
  • following that statement, i have A Lot Of Opinions on psychiatry and clinical psychology wrt: treatment models. i've been in psych wards and residential treatment and while i learned a lot, i'm a bit jaded and bitter and have no problem admitting it.
  • i don't have substance abuse issues but i do enjoy a drink or three perhaps more than i should.
  • i contradict myself.
  • i like all kinds of music, but my favorite artist of all time is/was Elliott Smith. other favorites include Bright Eyes, The Dear Hunter, Mumford & Sons, Nirvana, Failure, APC, and Alice in Chains.
  • i'm looking for all kinds of friends, whether we are similar or quite different. the only dealbreakers for me are homophobia and religious evangelism.
  • i write about daily life, things i'm reading and/or writing, and demons past & present.
this is a new journal so its quite empty at the moment but i'm not new to LJ. 

so yay. add me if you like.
