I'm New at This

To be honest, I don't know if telling people about my problems are going to solve them. I'm just looking for people who are willing to listen. I'm 22, I study English with a focus in Creative Writing for Film/Television at Eastern Illinois University. I have a shitty family, which is the main focus of this journal. I love using Twitter and movies are my thing. I collect DVDs. I love music and most of my journal will be sarcastic, which is a defense mechanism I use to shield the world from the truth about my family. I think there's a lot to talk about, but trust me, I'll start you out with the least craziest thing about my family. I would love for people to read and communicate with me and in return I will do the same. I believe everyone deserves someone to talk (write) to as well as someone who is willing to listen.

Pick me pick me!

Hello everyone!
I never know what to say when I'm supposed to tell people about myself. >.<
So we shall see how this goes!
Fist off my name is Amanda(Manda) I'm 21, and I live in Washington State. I was going to college, but took some time off to actually figure out what I want to do with my life, and to work. I live with my Boyfriend, our two cats, and roommate. I work, hang out with my boyfriend, hang out with my friends, and try to get by.I'm a huge nerd, I love books, comics, old cartoon shows, magic the gathering, video games. I'm also a girly girl, I have a subscription to Cosmo, I get my nails done, and my shoes have to match my shirt. I'm a kid at heart, I still cry when someone I like dies on t.v or in a book. I have all the Disney movie songs on my ipod, I still count by 5's when I look at the clock, I have all my beanie baby's, and I have almost all the episodes of Scooby-Doo and Whinny the Pooh.(and yes, I watch them all the time) I love to be lazy and sit on the couch all day and watch Netflix, but I get too restless if I do that for too long. I love to meet new people, and go places, I used to have a couple of pen pals, I would love to start that again. I love to read and write, I write poetry, and fiction, and I will read almost anything. I wear my emotions on my sleeve, and I'm really passionate, I go all or none, when I feel something, I feel it strongly. I have my opinions, but I also listen to everyone else's, I don't think I'm always thing I'm right. I just got back on LJ after being gone for two years, and I have noticed most of the friends I had, are gone, so its time for new ones. I'm basicly looking for people that have something in common with me, and that will listen and not judge. You don't have to comment every entry, but don't just comment when I do a friends cut. If you want to know more, just ask. :)
