Hello everyone, my name is Amanda, I'm 25, I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in Washington State. I've been on LJ since 2003, this is my latest journal. I was away for a while, but I miss the freeing feeling writing can bring. My head can be a chaotic mess of a place at times, it can be theraputic to get everything out, and it's nice to have others comment from time to time, so I'm back!
What I love: My fiance(been together 5 years this October) My cat, my friends and family, reading, writing, watching movies and t.v, nail polish(I'm obsessed) tattoos(I'm addicted)animals, video games, Netflix, rainy days, texting, MUSIC, comic books, Board Games, Being Nerd, Harry Potter, Colecting Quotes, and the outdoors.

The Perks of Being a Wall Flower, The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, John Green is a thing! And all the books and Authors that are on my kindle, haha this list could go on and on and on, I love to read 8)
What my journal is for: Mostly it's a place for me to record what hapens to me from day to day, with pictures, quotes, songs, what have you. I have Facebook, and I post statuses usually daily, but those are only so personal, and so detailed, but I want something where I can be completly myself. And put down in detail when I have the time, what goes on, I feel things like that are missing in this day and age, and that's sad, because these moments, these memories will be all I have someday, someday they may even leave my mind, so if I have life recorded down somewhere, its proof that I actually lived once...Anyway-->
Also This journal is my place to vent, I can be a bit emotional, and this is my outlet, I will get angry at my boss, and with my friends, and sometimes life in general. I will write about how the world sucks, and life sometimes isn't what I thought it would be. Sometimes I will be depressed, and upset, and lost and confused. But I'm 25, I'm still figuring everything out. Most of the time I will try to be possitive, if there is going to be a big depressive rant I will put it under a cut, so if you don't want to read about it you don't have to.
Me in a nutshell: I'm just your average 20 something kid at heart, trying to figure out where I belong, and how I can leave my mark on this world. I love meeting new people, and I'm very loyal and honest, I put others before myself, and I will always be here to listen.
Important: I'm for gay marriage and equality, gender equality heforshe<3, newly saved used to be agnostic(I go to church, but I'm not sure I consider myself a Christian exactly, I am still learning and am somewhat overwhelmed), bisexual, pro choice, Democrat and non censored. I'm open minded, and you don't have to share my views, but you can't bash me or try and sway me either. When I post about these things, you can always share your opinion, but we may have to agree to disagree, I will respect you, and I ask that you respect me.
Also, I am a horrible speller, and since I am edditing this, it isnt spell checking this for me, so I am sorry for all my spelling mistakes, especially if spelling is a big thing for you. I know it can bother a lot of people. Sorry once again!
