Remember in the days of Myspace bulletins when you could fill out "About me" sort of questions? I miss those.
So I'm Alysha, 23 and from Melbourne.
I say the word awesome way too often. I swear like a truck driver and stutter like Ozzy Osbourne when I'm really tired. I make too many hand gestures when I am excited about what I'm talking about and ask "you know?" when I am wondering if I have trailed off my point and the person whom I'm chatting with hasn't caught up yet.
My music taste is varied. It mostly leans towards metal/hardcore/alternative/indie scene and I have phases when I 'can't believe I ever took this CD ever out my player' and the next week its something else. Currently, Refused are playing out of celebration.
I dork out about movies, symbolism is awesome to discuss and I have a soft spot for shitty horror movies. I waste too much time on video games that result in rage-quitting, having a coffee to calm down and picking that controller up again to defeat the boss. Because of comics I have returned to my 4 year old state and prefer to read things with pictures - although Chuck Palahnuik will still be a favorite.
When I do post, its always in the middle of the night and nothing of particular value. A retelling of something that I think is awesome that happened recently, a whine about my brain-dead retail job or why my friends are idiots. Occasionally there is 'What am I doing with my life/Woe is me' entry but fear not, they are not often.
In reality, I am slightly reserved person. Like most people I have a guard up that very few people have managed to crack through and for me my journal is often away to express thoughts or feelings that I wouldn't necessarily say in real life. As a friend; I read your entries and comment if I have something to say on the subject. I was once deleted by a user who claimed that I didn't comment often enough as I should have in comparison to how much they posted - if you are that type of person, we won't work out. It takes time to build a friendship. Also, they were boring.
Religious nut-jobs need not apply - I have enough of those around me. Also, those who only write about their children (my facebook is filled with that) and those who are self-confessed crazy about grammar, I am paranoid about my spelling as it is.
