I live in NC and live with my soon to be husband...we're getting married in October, he's been a hugely positive influence in my life. No kids as of yet but I have baby FEVER and I want one badly even though I know we're not financially ready. We have two cats, love them lots. :) I like to read (White Oleander, currently), I like music (although it's not a big part of my life), I play video games (Zelda, currently), I cook, love TV (Dexter, Breaking Bad, True Blood, Community, House, Rome...the list goes on) and I work a lot (teller at a bank).
I post about day to day stuff.. my musings, my thoughts. I'm trying to figure out who I am and find it interesting to self-reflect. I enjoy getting other point of views on things, although I am very opinionated and you probably won't sway me on something I am set on.
I am an atheist and am very outspoken about it. Not to say I can't be friends with religious folks.. but if that's a HUGE part of your life, we might not be a good match. I'm also fairly liberal and tend to be a bit outspoken about politics as well, although I enjoy a good debate with people who have differing views and can actually defend their stance.
I post about dieting and weight loss... I am currently doing Weight Watchers. I used to be fairly eating disordered... I lost 100lbs in high school/early college by starving myself. I'm trying to normalize now and maintain a reasonable weight.
Pretty much everyone has left LJ that I used to be friends with, so I'm looking for lots of new friends. I'd like to meet people who are similar to me but also would really enjoy meeting people who are much different than I am as well. Some of the friends I've most enjoyed having over the years were ones from other countries.. so interesting to see their perspective on things going on in the US!
Looking forward to getting to know many of you! :)
