add me!

Hello my name is Amy and I am 28 yrs old from Cottage grove,Minnesota. i've been on livejournal since 2002. I love making new friends..so please add me and ill add you back <3


Hi, I thought I'd write a post because I'm attempting to relaunch my blog after an aborted first try.  Having people to talk to and interact with is kinda the main point of my blog and therefore getting out there in communities like this seemed like the logical thing to do.

The blog is an outlet for me to talk about the things I like and as the title suggests that will mainly be video games of pretty much any format or genre that takes my fancy.  However, I'm not going to limit it to just that. I love all the common forms of entertainment...

Books - Sci Fi and Fantasy mostly, my Kindle is quickly becomming a good companion to my iPad.
Comics - Bendis, Rucka, Kirkman - if its good then I'll read it.
Music - Brand New, 65DaysOfStatic, Manchester Orchestra, Get Up Kids, Coldplay, Radiohead, Elbow, Frank Turner.
Sports - Baseball, NFL, Basketball - basically any sport that isn't easy to watch from my timezone. *rolls eyes*
Anime - Hunter X hunter, Bleach, Ghost in the Shell, Miyazaki (obviously).

I don't get much time for films or TV these days but if it's good I'll try and find time to watch it.

However, personal stuff will be mostly off limits unless I deem it particularly noteworthy.  I'm largely happy and comfortable with my lot in life so I don't feel the urge to blog about it.  Plus I lead a fairly unremarkable life, so wouldn't make for interesting reading.  Doesn't mean I don't want to read about others though, so I may well follow people who only talk about their lives if I find them interesting.

So if anyone wants to add me, then that'll be great, I'll be sure to add you back.

Extending a Hand of Friendship

I posted in this community a while back looking for new LJ friends. A lot of people seemed to be leaving LJ back then and unfortunately it seems to be happening again. I'm not very good at talking about myself, but here goes:

My name is Mandy. I'm from Coastal Georgia in the United States. I'm a thirty-year-old high school English teacher. I'm not married nor do I have any children, that is if you don't count my students. Sure, I want those things, but I'm not the type to settle for just any old person. That seems to be to my detriment, LOL. What can I say, though? I'd rather be happy and alone than miserable with someone else. Yeah, that's my motto.

My LJ is a mixture of real life and fandom: When it comes to my real life, nothing is really out of bounds. I'll talk about my career, love life (obviously a lack thereof), family, general happenings, and thoughts about whatever topics come to mind. I'll go ahead and warn you since I am an English major and teacher, I will talk about Shakespeare and books from time to time. I also have a love for the theater. I go to plays when I can, so you'll get reviews on those from time to time, as well. Oh, and I love to write. I write fanfiction and original pieces. You'll hear about that, too.

As for fandom, I watch a lot of television shows. You might need to go to my infopage and look at my interests to get a better idea, but I'll list the main ones here. My absolute favorite television shows are Forever Knight and The X-Files. I grew up watching these two shows, especially the latter. FK unfortunately went off the air long before XF did. I also enjoy True Blood, Spartacus, Dexter, Criminal Minds, House, Dallas (yes, I already love this show), Switched at Birth, The Glades, Bones, He-Man, Smallville, Lois and Clark, and many, many more. My brain sort of goes blank when I want to list things, LOL.

I'm open to making all kinds of friends. All I ask is everyone be respectful of everyone else and comment once in a while. I'm not demanding a certain number of comments you must hit weekly or anything. I would just like to get to know whoever is on my friend list. My journal is friends only, so please comment and let me know you're adding me. I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting some of you.
