I'm hoping to make some new LJ friends, since my list seems to be dying down or not updating except maybe once every few weeks. :(

warning; this will probably all make me sound more exciting than I really am.

So, about me: I'm late 20s and I live in a smaller community in Oregon. Luckily the spot i'm in, I can just hit the freeway and I'm good to go anywhere. I love going places----tourist stuff? whatever! I go for the shopping, food and picture taking with friends! clubs! oogling cute boys!) and going to concerts so it works out pretty good for me. Sadly the last year or so its' been pretty slow and financially tight for the two but i'm always keeping eye out for a live or something to see if I can manage it.
I work in a (smaller) grocery store, the chain only being in part of California, Oregon, and part of Idaho. I've been there ten years, and i'm constantly complaining and ranting about stupid customers and rude behavior. ;D The great thing about this job is that its basically prepared me for almost any sort of person so I can handle most situations! I also picked up a second job at a doctor's office (they're family friends) so I do phone answering, filing, copying, etc.

and, more recent sterotypical shopped self-pic that is my norm oh hai ->
sorry about that. Its the most recent one I have, I just don't feel like taking pictures much anymore and dealing with it. Sort of glad my camwhoring days are over, actually. Promise nothing's changed much tho.










Music; I listen to a lot, actually and it's how i've made 90% of my friends. Most of my listening is primarily Japanese-based (yeah, I know. 'another one?!' I'm not crazy like some tho, I promise. For the record I adore AliceNine and don't mind meeting fellow fans) but I do like The Killers, Ellie Goulding, Lady Gaga, whatever. Everything really. Well, with the exceptions of hard rap and country. I do like my classical too, since I play/played piano since I was five, so Mozart is probably my favorite composer. (the rock star before rock stars, hell to the yeah.)

Likes: fashion and hair. Even though i'm a hopeless fail when it comes to actually doing it-I'm not patient enough to fiddle with the makeup, but I do try to branch out every now and then. I also like playing around on the Playstation and the HOME network, reading, strawberry lemonade, zombies (yeah, who else liked them before they became super mainstream? lol!) drinks with vodka, writing REAL letters to friends, shopping, making cute paper greeting cards on my criket machine and the occasional beading. I like to bake and cook, going to concerts, organizing things and cleaning. Eddie Izzard, Demetri Martin, Family Guy, South Park, I watch all that stuff. I also love watching Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth and Haunted Collector just for funsies. :)v Oh and of course Walking Dead.

Dislikes (and the part where I sound like a jerk) : I'm a pretty easygoing person, but don't type like an idiot. You learned to spell in school, use that knowledge. Text speak makes me want to break out the Red Pen of Doom and write all over my screen. I know i'm not perfect with my own grammar and spelling, but you get my meaning, right? As for what people i'd like to meet, i'd like to meet people with the same interests-anyone is fine, really, but if you're a parent, in a relationship or part of a community/organization and that's ALL you're about I don't think we'll get along so well. I'm the most tolerant person in the world and will try to be interested and open-minded but if you keep spamming JUST THAT, we'll probably not get along so well. (or actually, spamming shit in general. macros, music videos etc every fifteen minutes? that is what facebook is for. and i can block those on there.) Also I dislike fandom bias; if you start stanning something blindly, I get turned off, no matter what it is. I have my moments of spazzing over a new album drop or photoshoot but normally its contained to one post and its not constant.

So in the end, I'm no speical snowflake and my journal consists of rants and random things of the day or about my cats. I have five total, but I got a new one back in May to replace the parting of one. then a couple months later someone left a beautiful blue eyed siamese/himalayin kitten in a carrier in the parkinglot out in the hot sun, so I took him home and now my boys are bffs! <3 I use cuts on basically everything so I don't eat your friendspage and i'm a shit commenter but I'm trying to be better. But if you're on my friends list, i'm reading. Hopefully this is enough information to be informative about myself, since this entire thing has taken me maybe 45 mintues to put together and tweak and i'm posting this all before work so I won't go back and re-edit it.

If you're keen to friend, let me know either here or in a PM! Everything is friends-only so if you just add me without a hello I'm likely to not add you back! I'm not a poophead, I promise. :)
