This is how she rolls.

I never know how to start these things, so starting off by stating how I don't know how to start always seems like.. a good start.




Moving along..

About me: I'm Dana (but friends call me Danes). I'm a 29 year old Canadian lass who has been using Livejournal for oh, about nine years now? I've created a new journal, though. I wanted a fresh start & wanted to detach myself from the grim two years of my life that was documented in my last livejournal. I'll get to that one day. It's a little early to drop that bomb on unsuspecting strangers. But yeah, I've come out on top with so much life experience & positivity that I felt a new journal was appropriate. You know, new beginnings.

I'm in a long distance relationship (very long distance, actually). My other half is American. We're working on rectifying the distance thing, though. He's such a positive in my life. We've known one another for seven years online, always had common interests & well, truthfully, I was always in love with him but never said anything. He finally did at the beginning of this year, so I flew out there in April, & it's been fireworks ever since. Chase that feeling, there are no limitations!

Interests: I play roller derby. (#22 - Danamyte!) I also love cooking, albeit I couldn't bake to save my life. I'm willing to work on that, though. I'm into photography quite a bit as a hobby & aspire to change my carees in admin to full-time photography. Maybe one day. I'm also a big hockey fan (Montreal Canadiens, terrible year, let's not talk about it).

You should also know that I'm a nut for anything that is 1980s-related. Music, terrible fashion, sitcoms, cartoons - I guess it's a nostalgia thing. I'm huge on nostalgia.

Comedy. I love going to comedy clubs, watching celebrity roasts &, well, anything hilarious. Laughter is everything; I'm pretty much impossible to offend (I'll challenge you to try, though) & I can basically find humour in anything in life.

I'm also a sucker for video games, RPGs & science-y shit (astronomy, meteorology) - yeah, that sounded eloquent!

Some specifics?

Music: I'm pretty big into Indie music, but I'm not a snobby indie hipster by any means. My two favourite bands are The Stills (even though they broke up, they're still alive to me!) & Mother Mother. Again, also huge into 80s music, from Shoegaze to cheesy, synthy one hit wonders (to name a few, The Psychedlic Furs, The Smiths, Pet Shop Boys, Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Tears For Fears, etc.)

TV: The Office, Archer, MxC, Arrested Development, Parks & Rec, Community, Nurse Jackie, Six Feet Under, Masterchef, Eat St., Iron Chef, Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.. anything on the Food Network, basically.

I love to blog, I love to read & I love to throw in my two cents, but I am quality over quantity so I'm not going to go overboard if I have nothing of substance to offer. Well, typically anyway.

Add me if you think we'd jive!

Oh yeah, my face.
