My name is Mandy. I'm from Coastal Georgia in the United States. I'm a thirty-year-old high school English teacher. I'm not married nor do I have any children, that is if you don't count my students. Sure, I want those things, but I'm not the type to settle for just any old person. That seems to be to my detriment, LOL. What can I say, though? I'd rather be happy and alone than miserable with someone else. Yeah, that's my motto.
My LJ is a mixture of real life and fandom: When it comes to my real life, nothing is really out of bounds. I'll talk about my career, love life (obviously a lack thereof), family, general happenings, and thoughts about whatever topics come to mind. I'll go ahead and warn you since I am an English major and teacher, I will talk about Shakespeare and books from time to time. I also have a love for the theater. I go to plays when I can, so you'll get reviews on those from time to time, as well. Oh, and I love to write. I write fanfiction and original pieces. You'll hear about that, too.
As for fandom, I watch a lot of television shows. You might need to go to my infopage and look at my interests to get a better idea, but I'll list the main ones here. My absolute favorite television shows are Forever Knight and The X-Files. I grew up watching these two shows, especially the latter. FK unfortunately went off the air long before XF did. I also enjoy True Blood, Spartacus, Dexter, Criminal Minds, House, Dallas (yes, I already love this show), Switched at Birth, The Glades, Bones, He-Man, Smallville, Lois and Clark, and many, many more. My brain sort of goes blank when I want to list things, LOL.
I'm open to making all kinds of friends. All I ask is everyone be respectful of everyone else and comment once in a while. I'm not demanding a certain number of comments you must hit weekly or anything. I would just like to get to know whoever is on my friend list. My journal is friends only, so please comment and let me know you're adding me. I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting some of you.
