A little bit about me:
My name is Amie and I'm 30 years old. I was born and raised in Hawaii, but am currently residing in the sunshiney state of California. I'm currently married to a Marine, have 2 stepkids, but no kids of my own as of yet, mother to 2 dogs, and a stay-at-home wife for the time being. Reason for the latter is because I haven't been able to find a job out here, even with my 8 years of prior medical experience, for the life of me. I'm also a professional makeup artist (both having worked at a counter as well as freelance), but haven't really found anything around this area where I could apply those skills either. I'm still determined though and I tend to write about my efforts at job hunting and opportunities that come my way from time to time. I post pictures every so often, but not a whole lot. I've also made a lifestyle change when it comes to my eating. I'm currently on the track to eating clean and I also enjoy working out on a weekly basis. I do have a FaceBook, Twitter, and InstaGram, but I usually keep all of that separate from my LJ unless you choose to follow me that is.
I'm very open-minded and non-judgemental which is probably why I get along with so many people. I do consider myself to be a Christian, but at the same time I have some opposing views. I guess you could say I generally believe in doing what's right for the human race and we all have free will, our own opinions, and our own likes and dislikes. One of my best friends is gay and another one of my long time friends is an athiest so whatever you believe is your own business. I do like to share extraordinary moments which I believe my faith plays a part in, but I don't push my beliefs off on anyone.
I'm a big sports fan. Since football season is done, there won't be too much talk about that for now, but then again basketball season is up and going and the playoffs are just around the corner. I'm very feminine and girly, but at the same time I do have a tomboy side to me...probably leftover traits I brought into my adulthood from my adolesence. I'm also a gamer and have an XBox 360, a Wii (which I'll be trading in soon for the WiiU), a 3DS, and a PS Vita. Some may call it immature of me to still be playing these kinds of games, but in truth if men can do it during their adulthood, so can I.
I'm pretty chill and open to anything and anyone who wants to become friends on here. So despite our similiarities and our differences, add me if you want! =)
