feelings

A hit and run

All right, guys, I'm back here on a whim; let's see if I can make this coherent, as I'm writing on the final twenty minutes of my lunch break...

I'm Jess, 29 years old (will be celebrating my 30th birthday on July 31st), Special Education aide and FINALLY just about wrapping up my M.Ed. in Special Needs (well, the "taking classes" part, who knows when I'll be in a position to do the "teaching classes" part...)  I live in MA with my husband AND SOON-TO-BE KITTY (I have been promised a kitty for my birthday, and I will name him Zuko and I will love him very much). 

I love to write, but do far too little of it, and I love to read, but ditto the prior statement.  I crochet and do some paper crafts; I like making silly cards and books for friends and siblings, and I like making cards and postcards, decoupage, and cooking.  I recently lost 55 lbs. and have a few more to go, and (healthy) weight loss and working out are a signifigant part of my life.  I'm also big into fandom, but try to keep it to a reasonable level (ask me for my Tumblr handle if you want the really crazy shit).  Big fandoms are Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Community, Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, and a bunch of other things that will crop up here and there.

I mostly post about my daily life, will sometimes go off on a tangent (usually about academics, work, money, weight, etc.)  I'd like to try to post more frequently, but that will come in fits and starts.  My journal has a lot of Friend's Only entries, but is not, by any means, exclusively Friends Only.

I try to be a good commentor, but I don't comment ALL THE TIME unless I feel like I have something to say, and I ask nothing different from my friends (if you want to say something, say it!  But don't feel obligated or pressured to comment constantly).  It would also be cool to meet people from around my area, the chance to perhaps "bump into" one another (if the proper rapport is struck) is always cool.

Hello :)

I've just recently started back up on Livejournal and am looking for friends (obviously :P) I haven't posted really anything yet, this new journal is only about 2 or 3 days old, but I do plan to begin posting more frequently. A little about me, I'm 23 years old, live in Colorado and have my entire life. I work with dogs, and have been since I was 16 years old. I love viking metal music, but I listen to everything except for ska. A lot of my posts will most likely be about random topics. Anything from nerdy video game stuff, to my latest foster puppy stories, to my dieting progress. I figure it's my journal, so anything goes =) I'm a gamer nerd, an animal lover, a metalhead, and an overall friendly person. Just a note in case in my potentially be triggering, I'm also interested in psychology and mental health so sometimes my posts may about that type of stuff, both in general and in more personal ways. But I'm always up to talk to new people, so feel free to add me if you'd like.

I recently discovered this group, have already met some nice people here and I thought I'll give it a chance to meet some more :) I'm not good at writing all kinds of bio but let's see. My name is Kamila but I usually go by Kama or Kami. I'm 27 years old and living in Warsaw, Poland (but I'm originally from a city 120kms south from it and in my life I've lived in couple of different places, including Finland and Germany). I work at one of the rail companies, dealing with schedules of trains and I totally love it. I'm single by choice as I enjoy my independence too much, now it's time to discover the world, not to settle down ;) My main interests include travelling (I'm always planning some trips or thinking where I could go next, for example this Saturday I'm flying to Iceland), photography, reading books, watching movies, hanging out with friends, languages, music (everything that is considered "harder", in next 2 months I'm going to see live Metallica, Nightwish, Linkin Park, Garbage and some more and I'm already super excited), eating out and other random things. And that's what my LJ is mostly about, my life, my thoughts, ideas, plans, dreams, dilemas. I've been an active member of LJ for past 8 years and I don't plan to change that anytime soon, I'm way too connected with this place now, it has become a part of my life. I read all the entries on my Friends List but I comment only when I have something to say.

so yeah, new friends are welcome.

Hi. Part 2

Hi, i've posted on here a short while ago introducing myself and i got some lovely lj friends from it who are awesome.

As much as i'm proud of the adversities they go through unfortuently some entries have become a trigger for some bad memories.

My triggers drugs, depression and manic depression and eating disorders.

I also have autism which means communication is sometimes hard and i can come across as being blunt, uncaring, etc. but its actually the opposite, i care too much and want to help everyone around me to be happy and ok, so its hard to accept i can't always do that and consequently it makes me worry a lot which doesn't really help anyone lol.

I don't mind being friends with people who do suffer from those 3 things, aslong as they don't make them public entries. I know some people like to be able to relate and talk about it, but it just makes me upset or in the drugs case, annoyed, the only exception is if its medicinal.

Aside from this i put in my journal rants and raves from time to time lol but mostly they're nice entries about things i've done. I read all my friends entries on a daily basis and comment when i feel i have something to say. I'm a writer with an interest in photography, sewing, knitting and jewellery making. I have a rare sleep disorder, which prevents me from working - hence a lot of hobbies :) i have a varied range of pets and am engaged to a wonderful guy :)

I have been through a lot of bad stuff in the past and have been lucky to come through I've all, not without its scars though, but i'm enjoying the long awaited light at the end of the dark tunnel.

So, comments, adds are all welcome. Recently i've been called an asshole, ignorant and uneducated because of all of this, so it'll be interesting to see what happens now i've made this entry explaining a bit. There a more personal view explaining the history behind it that you're welcome to read if you like.

Hello fellow earthlings!

I'm rather new to this community and to livejournal if truth be told. I use to frequently use this sites a few years ago when I was still in high school but then completely forgot about it with the advent of social networking site like facebook, twitter, youtube, etc. I've come back to livejournal though as I felt the need to write. I have to admit I'm rather new to this and I don't post as often as I'd like but I'm really looking to make this a regular part of my life. My name's Lizzie, I've lived on this earth for 23 years, and I'm currently in the process of surviving my last semester of college.

Part of the reason why I've come back to livejournal has to with how disorganized my life is at the moment and writing has really helped me release a lot of the anxiety I've been going through recently. So you might find that my entries are a bit on the ranty side but I will be writing about other things that are mostly related to anime, music, books, LGBT issues, and just personal philosophies. Honestly whatever floats my boat is what I'll be writing about. I would really love to get to know people on here and ,perhaps, make new friends.

Hi! My name is Kelsey, I'm 21 and I live in Baltimore. I've posted here a few times and I've managed to get some great LJ friends, but I've been updating and checking LJ on a much more frequent basis, so I'm looking to expand my friends list a bit.

I'm looking for friends who are active. We don't necessarily need to have everything in common... I'm just looking to find new people to interact with! All I ask is that you are respectful of my beliefs and I'll be respectful of yours.

I really enjoy photography and even though I rarely have time to really shoot anymore, I try to include some shots of my daily life in every entry. I love arts and crafts. I'm obsessed with home decor and cooking/baking. I am a health fanatic. I love working out and eating right and being healthy. Music is a huge part of my life and while I love a lot of different kinds, country will always be my favorite genre. Something Corporate however, has been my favorite band since 7th grade and I doubt that'll ever change. I'm from a small town in Western Maryland, so I'm a country girl at heart. I LOVE TV and movies. I watch around 5 movies a week, and as far as TV goes I adore Mad Men, Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, Weeds, Community, Once Upon a Time, Pretty Little Liars and The Office. I spend a good chunk of my time with my nose buried in books. I love learning, expanding my horizons and taking the time to just think about things. I'm fascinated with philosophy and astronomy. I am a self-proclaimed shopping addict. The Pittsburgh Steelers are my team, and football is the only sport I really care about. I am religious, but if you're not I don't care. I've been sober for over a year and it feels better than I could have ever imagined.

I'd like to think of myself as a friendly and somewhat interesting person. So, happy adding! :)
