Name’s Cassie, 26, female, queer/pan, fangirl. That’s the basics. Apparently I’ve had my journal for 7 years… but I didn’t begin actively using it until the 2011/2012 timeframe.
Self summary: Fangirl who loves Supernatural, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Girl Meets World, musicals, Disney movies, The Beatles, 60s/70s/80s music, my 7 wives (I'll explain later), the Minions, Peggy Carter, Charlie Bradbury, Sam Smith, Nick Jonas, lesbian things, the Hamilton soundtrack, romance, my cat, music, and all things nerdy (you should see some of my t-shirts). I support the LGBT+ community wholeheartedly and manage to find the lesbian in every f/f friendship. :D :D :D
I’m 26 (mentioned that before), lives at home with my mom and my fur daughter, Maddie. I’m a full-time aunt and part-time nanny. I love kids and enjoy working with them… but have little to no desire to reproduce, lol. I don’t drive yet. I live in southeastern Ohio in an area my friend described as the “West Virginia of Ohio”. It’s uber conservative, painfully small, drugs run rampant, and the socioeconomics suck balls. Will be moving away the first chance I get.
My journal: Mostly me talking about my life. Some fandom is always mixed in because fangirling is how I cope. Random fanfic musings. Oh, I’m single and like girls… so, I often discuss my struggle to date/find someone. Sometimes I rant/complain, but that doesn’t happen a lot. My journal is a safe place and I blindly trust those who dare to read it! Oh, and sometimes I vidpost. I curse occasionally, too. :p
What I look for in friends: Support. I don’t expect you to comment on everything, but I’d still like to hear from you occasionally to know you are still reading my entries. I don’t always respond to others entries (more on that in a minute), but I do make an effort to read everyone’s posts. :)
I have my ups and downs. I am recovering from a serious case of Major Depression that affected my life for over 10 years. My depression is now a 3 on a 1-10 scale; that’s quite impressive considering where I started. I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). My anxiety has been getting increasingly worse over the years. I recently had to quit my (new) job because of it. I’m now back to square one. I’m trying to find temp work/ jobs I can handle while waiting to be approved for Disability (SSI). It’s one day at a time, and I need people who are patient and understanding enough to respect what I am going through and grasp how this will always be a part of me. Because of this, it’s sometimes make it hard for me to comment on entries. It’s not that I didn’t read your post… it’s the fact that I don’t have anything to say or I’m not sure what I should say. That being said, I do enjoy reading my f’list and sharing the human experience.
I’d like to keep the number of people I add limited! I did a Friends Cut earlier this year where I axed 30ish people because I couldn’t keep up with them all.
If you’ve read this far and are not scared off, drop a comment on my Friends Only post OR right here! :D
