I'm a 27-year-old passionate, curious individual. I currently call Florida my home and I love it. I have two degrees in astrophysics and working on my doctorate. I'm a total space geek and I love my career. I'm single but casually dating my ex-fiance, so it's complicated. I live with an older roommate and five cats (one mine, four hers) not too far from the beach. I'm a Catholic convert and my faith is a huge part of my life. The only drama I've ever experienced on LiveJournal concerned religion/morality, so if you're close-minded or prejudiced and judge me because of my faith, then you're not a friend. I don't watch much TV, but I keep up with the shows I care about. I love reading and wish I could dedicate more time to it. I'm also into scrapbooks, harps, cooking/baking, beading, and I'm getting more into personal finance and politics these days. I'm an eternal optimist, but I'm also getting over a bout of depression, so my life has been a roller coaster of emotions this past year. I'm big on self-improvement and challenging myself, and others assist with this.
My LiveJournal is mostly a personal log of my life, what I'm doing and how I'm feeling. All of that is currently behind a friends lock. I treat LJ like a journal and write mostly for myself. Writing is like therapy for me. But I also welcome feedback and discussion from others. I read the LJs of everyone on my friends list and I comment often.
I'm actually quite selective when it comes to my friends list. I like to know that I can connect with someone when I open up my personal life and emotions. I connect best with those who have a similar life philosophy and a high level of maturity. Sharing interests is a plus but not required. Also, microblogging is great on Twitter but very boring on LJ, so please no Twitter feeds. I hope that the LJ friends who I'm searching for are you! I welcome you to add me!
