Riding the bomb


Hi everyone. I've noticed my friends list has been getting a bit lifeless as a lot of my old friends have either left LJ or rarely post anymore. So I'm looking to meet some interesting new people. So here's a few things about me:

I'm one of the LJ old-timers as I've been here since about 2003, although I've had this journal since 2008. Also I'm 43 (will be 44 in April) so that makes me ANCIENT in LJ terms...lol.

I'm male (you probably figured that out from my username).

I was born, raised, and until just over a year ago, lived in Florida until I relocated to Pennsylvania. I was married once, have been divorced since 2008 and have a 9 year old daughter who lives in Florida with her mother (she just spent a week of her winter break with me & just got to see snow for the first time).

I have an AWESOME girlfriend who I met here on LJ 3 years ago. Our relationship started out long distance but just over a year ago I moved to PA to be near her.

I work in a call center. I know it's not much but considering I had been unemployed for most of the previous 2.5 years except for 2 or 3 temp jobs, I'm just happy to be working right now.

I'm studying for an online MBA in Healthcare Management which I plan to complete in October.

Some things I like: baseball, movies, reading, sleep (although I never get enough because I'm a hopeless insomniac), love, outdoor activities, the beach, golf, Stanley Kubrick (check out my userpic from Dr. Strangelove), ethnic food, bagpipes, kilts, gaming, open-minded people, diversity.

Things I dislike: people who think they're always right, religious fanatics (I'm a very spiritual person but I'm having some serious questions about my faith and don't want anything shoved in my face), closed-minded people, homophobia, bad drivers, drunks, confined spaces (I'm claustrophobic), elevators, ignorance, sex, insomnia (I can't fall asleep before midnight to save my life), abusive people and mushrooms.

So have a look at my profile and if you see anything you like, add me.

Hi! My name is Stacy. I'm a 31 year old mother of two little boys. I also stay at home with them so I don't have a super exciting life, but I journal regularly and my list is pretty quiet. So, I'm on the lookout for new friends.

My first born son has a speech delay (he's a little over 2), he has no words at all still. So he goes to therapy once a week. My youngest is 6 months and is crawling around and getting into trouble.

My husband and I have been together for almost 10 years, and we also have 2 furkids.

I love to watch TV and movies. I love to read. I horseback ride. I'm interested in costuming and fencing. I also like belly dancing and Renaissance Festivals.

Some of my favorite things: Great Big Sea, Labyrinth, Once Upon a Time, Castle, Elementary, Bones, Brave, The Lion King, Disney/Pixar, Summer, Halloween, Journey, Peter Gabriel, The Okee Dokee Brothers.

I'm Back!

Hello all! I used to be on LiveJournal about 10 years ago and I have made a promise to myself that I would start verbalizing my thoughts and feelings rather than ignoring them. So, I returned to LiveJournal, started a journal at home, and started a Q & A a day journal. I'm 27 and I'm a stay at home wife. My husband acquired his PhD in Pharmacy in June so we recently moved to the Cleveland area for his job. A few things about me:

Activities: Baking, Cake Decorating, looking for volunteer oportunities in my community, Notre Dame Football and photography.
Movies: Tommy Boy, Halloween (all of them), A Time to Kill, Grandma's Boy, Super Troopers, Clerks, Disney movies, Book of Eli, The Fourth Kind, Insidious, This is It, and many more!
TV: Grey's Anatomy, American Horror Story, anything on ID, Daria, The Sopranos, and much more!
Video Games: Lego Games, Epic Mickey, Michael Jackson Experience, Kingdom Hearts, NCAA Football, and more!

I hope to hear from some of you soon! Happy new year to all of you! - Jessica

My LJ is normally friends only, but you can hardly ask people to friend a friends only journal, so I've opened up the past 6 months for perusal.
