I should probably start off by saying that I'm one of "those people." You know, the ones who had an LJ for a really long time and kept up with it, but then something happened and they disappeared, and now they are back searching the add_me community because they don't really know their friends list anymore. Yep. Hi. The thing is, I have in fact had this LJ for a long time. It got me through college, study abroad trips, relationships, and so on. Then something major happened and I just needed to live life for a while instead of writing it. There just wasn't time. I've reached the point where I miss it, and I've realized that writing helps me sort out the hard parts and remember the good ones.
Enough of that crap. Who am I?
I'm a high school teacher and I love my job. I'm 24. I moved out of my parent's home and into a townhouse in November. I just adopted a dog. I'm in a relationship (let's be real, not everyone wants to talk about that). I adore spanish.
Possible issues/interests. These are things that could go either way depending on who you are and your beliefs.
I am a feminist. I'm queer, but in a straight relationship. I swear, but not like a sailor. I sometimes talk about sex. I don't know a lot about politics. I do (on occasion) post pictures and memes.
I don't care if we like the same music or have 947 things in common. I don't expect you to comment on every entry and I won't comment on all of your entries - that isn't what LJ is about. However, I do have some expectations.
- Be familiar with the English language. Know what a comma is. Know what a period is. Know that capital letters do not belong in the middle of a word and that it is not necessary to type in all of the colors of the rainbow.
- I am an 80 year old woman trapped in the body of a 24 year old. I'm not much of a drinker, and I go to bed early. Therefore, I don't want to hear about partying, drugs, or the like. You went to a great one? Sure, I'll read, but not all the time.
- Offering advice is cool, but don't judge. That's not your job. It's not my job either.
- Be at least 20. Sorry. I teach high school and anything close to that age hits a little too close to home.
If you would like to add me, please shoot me a message or leave a comment here. I don't add strangers because that's creepy. Let me know you exist and I will gladly add you. My 2 most recent [friends only] entries should give you a pretty good idea of who I am. If we don't click, unfriend me - no hurt feelings.
