-I am one of those people that strange things tend to happen to. My journal is testament to that.
-I am 25 & happily married to my eccentric high school sweetheart. We live in NJ, though I grew up in CA.
-LOVE many kinds of music, sci-fi/fantasy, cooking, gardening, wildlife, the paranormal, old-fashioned stuff, martial arts, road trips, camping, books, movies, science, learning, and various shiny things.
-I graduated high school at 16. Went on to college, loved it, and graduated with a teaching degree.
-I love my three jobs. I tutor kids at their homes. My husband and I own an electric motor repair shop. I sometimes substitute teach. In the past I've worked as a wildlife rehabber, college bookstore employee, and Biology teacher.
-I'm a complete nerd with a rather eventful past.
I joined LJ in my formative, impressionable years and it has been my main creative outlet ever since. But every few years, enough of my friends desert their LiveJournals in favor of the shiny pixelscapes of more promising places. I love a packed friends' page. In contrast, a “ghost town” friends' page is just a bit sad...and that's what mine has been as of late. So here I am to solve it once again...with your help!
...and what about you?
-You should be 18+, as I sometimes talk about sex.
-You should be looking for an actual friend. I tend to get pretty close with people on LJ.
-I comment regularly. I comment for conversation, not for the sake of keeping score. I comment to learn, to help, and sometimes to make people laugh. This is a big part of how I get to know people. If you feel similarly about comments, we'll get along great.
-Say hi before you add me, just so I know you're not a bot ;)
