Crazy cat lady seeks non-feline friends for social interaction and borderline stalking

(X-posting to a couple of communities.)

Greetings, everyone. I am Mau -- yes, like the sound a cat makes and yes, it's my real name -- and for five more days, I'm 26 years old. I'm a natural born gamer nerdling, having been planted in front of a PC with a short love affair with Commodore 64 at the age of four. As a child, I didn't take interest in anything else but learning new things, especially on the computer front, and my first-to-third grade teacher dubbed me a future genius. I'm not entirely sure what happened along the way, but that whole genius aspect got dropped and was replaced by insanity, although some claim those two go hand-in-hand. While I'm still eager to learn and do so with relative ease, I started having concentration issues at the age of 13. A bit later on in life I was diagnosed with Bipolar I disorder (although it's not "correct" as I'm constantly in a mixed episode, rapid cycling between depression and mania) and in my early adulthood, my brain decided to adopt a new nuisance in the form of mild OCD (meaning I'm not obsessive as such, but I'm highly neurotic and driven by routines) and EDNOS followed by an anxiety disorder that occasionally peaks into panic attacks. Asperger's and ADHD have also been thrown around in theory but they've yet to say yay or nay on those. I stopped caring a little while ago about what my paperwork says and like to just dub myself as "quite crazy" if anyone asks. :P

I love World of Warcraft. I'm a role-player so I've situated myself in a RP server (Argent Dawn EU). I live for my cats (proud owner of slave to four currently), their fuzzy wickedness is what keeps me afloat when depression takes a stranglehold. I write poetry and short stories, sometimes fictional, sometimes factual, and occasionally draw and paint. I'm a Simsaholic as well as a Harvest Moon addict and I also love the Silent Hill universe. You can also often catch me playing old Sierra adventure games, the Gabriel Knight trilogy being my ultimate favorite. I also love photography although I won't claim to be in particularly talented at it. :3 I love bodymodding but due to owning a body that rejects everything (including its own internal organs from time to time), I've sadly have to wean myself off my piercing addiction. I adore Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Rome, Xena... that type of entertainment, and I'm a 2NE1 Blackjack.

What will I write about in my journal? Bipolarism, occasionally, because even if I don't live for the illness, it plays a massive part in my life. My cats. Video games. Life in general. I'll post photos and just generally share my life. Occasionally I will post something high as a kite because of my evening meds, although I generally delete or at least spell-check those entries the next morning. I will also write about my search for The One whom I believe I've already found, he just doesn't realize it yet. Travelling, when I have the money for it and the petsitters to take care of my little meow-horde, will also be talked about as well as dreams of travel. I'm an avid commenter and also appreciate a comment here, another there in my journal as well. I might also occasionally touch some painful topics as I've not lived a very easy life and continue to struggle with some aspects, but you won't have to worry about pointless whining too much. :D

What kind of people do I look for? Real people. People who are not putting on a role. I'm interested in peoples' lives, real lives, no matter how much they might differ from my own. Everyone who is not faking it are welcome to join me as I trod through life's ups and downs. <3
