My name's Rien (It's my middle name). I'm 21 and a college student hoping to become a Nurse Anesthesia. I'm: Christian, girly, blonde, workaholic. I'm not: a hypocrite, partier, liar, or one to hurt others.

Comment my friends only entry and add me if you'd like to be friends. :) I used this journal a long time ago but left it for GJ and I'm back now looking for new friends since I haven't been able to find my old ones. :(

 I'm Rebecca and I'm a 23 year old Texan. I am graduating from the University of Texas in about a week! I just passed my teacher certification tests, so I will be certified to teach Pre-K through 4th grade!

Some things that I really like include:

-the 1920's
-alphabetizing things
-art (impressionism, outsider art, Henry Darger, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, etc.)
-being left-handed
-cover songs
-fashion
-Grace Kelly
-laughing
-learning how to cook
-movies (Wes Anderson, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Roman Polanski, etc.)
-museums 
-music (Crystal Castles, the Fiery Furnaces, Jenny Lewis/Rilo Kiley, Neon Neon, of Montreal, Tilly & the Wall, etc.)
-reading (Jane Austen, Truman Capote, Vladimir Nabokov, Kurt Vonnegut, etc.)
-video games
-Zelda Fitzgerald

My friend's list mostly has community posts, so it'd be nice to have some real journal to read, follow, and comment on.

And for those who like to put a face to a name, here is a

New Friends

Hello. I've been a member of LJ since 2004, and I've met some really great people here. Unfortunately, my attendance over the past couple of years has been very sporadic, so I've also lost track of quite a few friends during my extended absences. My journal was originally brazen in its openness, became bashful and friends-only over time, and has finally transitioned to a state of, "Oh, for pity's sake, who really cares?"

What kinds of stuff do I post? I'm almost always reading something, and my journal tends to reflect that with reviews of books I like, quotes from books, and other bits of book trivia. I also enjoy telling stories, and will frequently post episodes from my real life online—changing names where appropriate to protect the not so innocent. Memes and quizzes are okay, but since very few of them interest me, very few are posted. I also dabble with fiction writing on occasion, but you needn't run screaming for the hills, I only post stories in the writing communities that are foolish enough to accept me.

I am addicted to Dr. Pepper; enjoy long conversations; love dogs, but cats not so much; prefer being hot to being cold; and typically vote blue, not red. I work in sales, and frequently travel as part of my job.

I am looking for new friends to correspond with on LJ, and I'll try to be as open in the selection process as possible. In fact, as James Finn Garnner said in Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, "If, through omission or commission I have inadvertently displayed any sexist, racist, culturalist, nationalist, regionalist, ageist, lookist, ableist, sizeist, speciesist, intellectualist, socioeconomicist, ethno-centrist, phallocentrist, heteropatriarchalist, or other type of bias as yet unnamed, I apologize and encourage your suggestions for rectification." Unless, of course, I just don't like you!
