My account name is the title of a Jimi Hendrix song. At this stage in my life, not much is important besides going to shows and dancing my ass off. I don't like to write about my day-to-day activities, but I can't help but be personal in my own journal. Despite how crappy/biased most of journalism is nowadays, I still believe in it and want to be a part in changing it. My favorite films are Pee-wee's Big Adventure and Dr. Strangelove (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb). I'm traveling to India by myself this summer and I'm incredibly excited/scared shitless! People often tell me that I'm intimidating, an enigma, or mysterious--I don't understand this at all. I like journals that include music, photography and other random, interesting things. I enjoy the heartless commentators on Oh No They Didn't! way too much, even though I have no idea who half the celebrities they comment on are. Two things are obvious upon meeting me: I'm by far a George girl when it comes to the Beatles; my spirit animal is the cat. I realize that most of my views come from an extremely privileged angle, but I'm constantly changing my opinion as I learn more about the world around me. I'm rarely completely sold on something, except for the music I listen to.

If any of this sounded remotely interesting to you, please leave a comment. I do like to look people's profiles before I add them!


I am in love with life! I'm an adventurous spirit just waiting to spread her wings and fly. My head is constantly filled with impossible dreams and stories that I'll never right. I live for the moment. I'm an unshakable optimist who believes everything happens for a reason. I'm flighty, excitable, and speak simply, but I'm not nearly as stupid as I seem. I have lots of cats, but hey don't all live with me. I am totally in love with my boyfriend and will probably gush about him every day. I am not a photographer or artist by any means, but I like posting pictures too! I am a sucker for all things cute and am a hopeless romantic as well. I'd want to keep my journal a positive and drama-free place too.

A Message In a Speckled Bottle...

My name is Melody, I'm 22, and my husband Brendan and I have been married
for almost 2 years. We have two boys- Brendan (4) and Aidan (8 months) who are
amazing. We started out young, and are the first in our families and among friends
to parent and marry, We live on Long Island and love it. I am a Pediatric Nurse, NYS-
EMT and musician. Looking for new friends to read and chat with when I'm working my
night shift and need to stay awake!

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit.
I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

    U2- Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

(no subject)

My name is Nicola. I'm 21 years old and I live in the South of England, just below London. I'm currently a student in my second year at university studying combined english literature and early childhood studies - after which I hope to either do a postgraduate degree in primary school teaching or get a job in journalism or politics, whichever happens first!

I enjoy getting to know people, and so I really only want people on my friends list that will actually talk to me. I don't expect you to comment on all of my entries, and I probably won't comment on all of yours either, but I do like to talk to the people on my list every now and then! I am the sort that actually enjoys getting to know you. For that reason I keep my friends list quite small, but I feel I know everybody on it well enough that I can expand it a little without getting too confused now!

I enjoy travelling, and I am a freak in that I prefer to do it on my own! I love exploring new places, whether they're somewhere far away or just seeing what happens if I walk in a certain direction for long enough! I've been to the majority of Europe and spent four months camping around America and Canada last year - this year I am going to the far less exotic Ireland, but I'm still looking forward to it! I love getting to know the places I visit and the people that actually live there - which is much easier without friends who just want to sunbathe trailing after you!

I listen to a lot of music, pretty much any genre. I still listen to cheesy awful pop like Steps and A1, and I won't lie, I still enjoy it way too much! I also like Lady Gaga far too much. I mostly listen to pop, rock and dance. I'll give anything a try but if it's rap or country, I probably won't like it. I'm the same with movies, I will try anything although my favourites are all comedies or horrors. I watch anything with either Leonardo DiCaprio or Kiefer Sutherland in it, regardless of how obviously terrible the movie is.

If you would like to be added, please add me first and then comment to let me know!

Hi, I'm Nicole. I'm 28 and live in Kansas (how exciting!). I'm looking for new some new people to talk with. I lost a lot of my RL friends due to me going into a major funk for about four months. I don't really post a lot but I'm a great commenter.

More about me: I am currently unemployed and spend most of my time looking for work. I plan on going back to school once I am employed.
I am married and just got a rat terrier puppy named Cubby that is our surrogate child. I can be a bit emo at times but I'm working at getting through all that.

So anyhow, check out my profile and comment if you want to add me!
