My name is Jamie, though most people tend to call me Lyssa [which is my middle name] and I'm a Jersey girl en route to Texas. I love to blog, I love getting to know people, I love getting comments, and I love making comments,and I'm looking to make some new lj friends, I've been a member of LJ for over ten years through several different journals and stages of my life.
STUFF ABOUT ME. I'm 29, I'll be thirty in September, I currently live in New Jersey, although I'm NOTHING like anyone on Jersey Shore. I've lived in Jersey my ENTIRE LIFE, and come July, I'm taking a huge step away from the east coast and moving to Houston, Texas to start life on my own, get a teaching job, eventually get that masters and PhD, and further endure my road to Geekdom with my boyfriend, who lives in Houston, we've been together for thirteen months, in an LDR.
What do I write about? Mainly, recently, moving to Texas, the job search as well as current jobs, my boyfriend, magic the gathering, and whatever drama seems to be floating around in my life, although KNOCK ON WOOD, life seems to be drama free, FINALLY, in the new year.
I don't really FANDOM out in my journal, I do have my occasional fan girl moments, but really, my journal is about my life and stuff in my life.
Television: I really LOVE Big Bang Theory [and think my boyfriend might be a combination of Sheldon and Leonard....], Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Torchwood, American Idol, The Voice, Heroes, LOST, X-men Evolution, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Stargate, Andromeda, Firefly, New Girl [I have SUCH a girl crush on Zooey Deschanel, OMG] and House, to name a few.
Movies: Alice In Wonderland [Disney and Tim Burton versions], Nightmare Before Christmas, Mulan, American Beauty, Mirrormask, Labyrinth, Pan's Labyrinth, Monsters INC, and All Across the Universe, to name a few.
Books: Love to read. I love Harry Potter, The Dresden Files, almost anything by Richelle Mead, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Sookie Stackhouse novels, Catcher in the Rye, Hemingway, Hunger Games, and many others, I LOVE READING.
Music: TOO MANY BANDS TO LIST, but mostly HIM, Nightwish, grunge era music [nirvana, alice in chains, etc] Cradle of Filth, and lots of classic rock bands.
Hobbies: I'm addicted to playing Magic the Gathering and I love photography and stuff like painting and making collages. I also DIG video games, especially stuff like Soul Calibur, Kingdom Hearts, Chrono Trigger, and any Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest game.
