I've been on LJ since around 2002 (you can reference my_path that's what I used to be under).
I have a new lj name, paid account, and trying to have a new outlook on life :). I should be getting married this year if finances prevail (I've been with my fiancee since 2010 and we got engaged 12-13-14 :). No kids or pets yet, but I'd like both of those.
I work part-time retail, used to work health care as an aide...thinking of getting back into it if I can.
I have some mental and health issues, so if you don't like those discussed, you can pass me by. I have a low immune system, anxiety, depression, and addiction issues. I hope this doesn't make people avoid me. I am brutally honest in my journal. I talk about sex (only with one man now, of course) and addiction to alcohol. I've beaten drug addiction and self harm addiction, I'm just still battling the booze. I am wanting to take a break from that, though, so I will make this post, and when I make 30 days I will make another add me post :D I don't really have a social life anymore (I moved away from my friends/family to be with my fiancee; I'm an only child and my parents are divorced and live far from me now) so my online friendships are important to me and I'm looking to keep those and develop more if possible.
My dream is to be a writer, but I haven't written much lately; I hope to get back into it soon.
I read every day, problem is I re-read a lot, lol. Favorite authors are Stephen King, Anne Rice, George R.R. Martin, V.C. Andrews is a very guilty pleasure. I like historical fiction and biographies and I'm trying to read more classics, as well.
I love rock and pop music and I can listen to country and rap as well. Tori Amos is my favorite musician of all. Tool is my favorite band but I'm a big fan of 90's rock.
I like comedy tv shows and drama/horror movies. I'm working on conducting a list.
I would appreciate any adds of active journals, livejournal has always been important to me. :)
