Hello, I'm Crista. (I've posted before here before a long time ago)
I'm 20 and live in Canada. As a student in university, I hope to obtain a major in English (Literature or Language, I haven't decided yet) and hope to get into the publishing field. I'm Asian, living in a very "asian" city (once, my university was labelled "too Asian" and I wonder if I should be offended or admit it's the truth... heh) and my family is religious and I'm... well, I don't know what I am (I hardly talk about my religion anyway).

I'm in that in-between stage of life where I don't know what's going on, my opinions on things change rapidly (especially my obsessions - huge emphasis on that) and I'm very easily influenced. I like to think I'm open minded, but in truth, I just don't know much about anything so I'm very happy to learn and understand new things.

I started being active on livejournal in September of last year and I've got to say, I'm very glad I started again. I learn a lot from the friends I've made on here and I've never been so active in my writing as I am now.

I'm a writer and a reader who needs inspiration to write and very prone to bouts of writer's block. I do write slash fanfiction as well as original fiction so there will be posts like that. I love to hear critique about my writing because I want to improve my writing and expand my abilities.

My entries usually consist of my daily life. I tend to write long entries and use a lot of sarcasm and swearing. If you want eloquence... well.. sorry! I do refrain from using the f-word and save it for very very very angry moments. But I have a rule: if I'm still angry about something after a day, I'll write it. If not, it won't make the journal. I like to keep my journal free of impulse-emotional outbursts. I'll mention it briefly maybe. And I ramble onto tangents very easily (as demonstrated in the first paragraph).

I love watching movies and TV. I love talking about character development and plot lines. I love arguing about it even more. Some shows I watch: Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Glee and Jersey Shore (yes... I like it to a point where I'm a fan and not a hater.)

I read books: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Enemy by Charles Higson. I like post-apocalyptic and dystopian books which is the trend nowadays among teens. I'm even writing something about a zombie infested city.

I definitely don't expect comments every entry. I do eventually read every entry, just very slowly and I'll be honest: I'm a horrible at commenting consistently. I'll pop up here and there. 

My journal is mostly friends only but I public certain entries for discussion. Have a look and if you like what you see, feel free to add and comment to let me know. I'll definitely add you back.

Looking forward to getting to know a few of you!
