the subject is a lie

Hi, I'm von. I've been on livejournal since.. oh wait, no one cares. I am the wrong side of 25, creeping ever close to the next decade of my life. I am a psych student, like my sister - the two of us have the most boring conversations ever. I live in a rather large city, where I rent a room in a house with the others, which is basically what I call my housemates. We have a love-hate thing going on, but it is ridiculously cheap to live here.. so fair-trade off, imo. Also, this is a bonus because I'm not working at the moment.



My favourite things to do are read, bake, shop, go on grand adventures, and play video games - in particular, I play WoW.. and I'm pretty stoked over getting to be a panda soon. I try to knit from time to time, with varying degrees of success (read: failure) but it's theraputic so I stick at it. I love Joni Mitchell and everything about the 1960s - music, culture, fashion, etc. As for modern stuff, I really love soft-rock, trance, R&B, and that sort of thing. I <3 Ellie Goulding - think she's fab. I kinda like Taylor Swift, too. My favourite TV show is NCIS and I've watched Twilight without recoiling in complete horror or bursting into a fit of laughter, so I'd say that's okay too.

Misc stuff:

- I have an ongoing war with my neighbour over who can have the nicest flowers in the kitchen window.
- If I draw faces on my cupcakes, I can't eat them.
- I live an unconventional lifestyle - but if I didn't tell you, you'd never know.
- When I get stressed, I pop mints until I feel better.
- I love classical art - and I think a lot of modern art is complete rubbish.
- I'm a Christian.
- People tell me I'm "quirky" - whatever that really means.
- I love snail-mail.
- Whenever I do something productive, I reward myself with hot chocolate and marshmallows.
- I once fell asleep on a first date. Awkward does not quite cover it.
- Thrift stores are love.
- I munched through half a bag of cookies while writing this. Oops.

My journal is semi-public and, although I'm typing normally here, my journal posts are entirely lower-case. Friend me if you like, and I'll add you back.


x-posted, like, twice. So if you see it somewhere else, my apologies.
