Need A Friend

Hello! My name is Brooke, I am 23 and am from Minnesota.
I started my livejournal because I could really use some friends right now.
I don't have many friends in my everyday life (actually not any) and am very lonely.
I would like to find friends that can offer their support and advice and I can do the same in return.
My journal is going to be very honest and open.

Time For A Fresh Start!

Hi there! My name is Monica, I'm currently 36 and happily married. No kids yet. It's been over 3 years since I've been on LJ and I've been missing it. But life has been busy and there just hasn't been time to sit down and type. Though now things have settled down and I can breathe a little. So I'm reaching out to make new friends and see where it takes me. I'll include a pic and some interesting things about me.

Likes/Hobbies- Reading, writing, art, crafts, cooking, music, movies, cats, mine craft, world of war craft, walking, board games, card games, Pokemon, animal crossing, fan fiction, anime, gardening, food and other things I can't think of right now.

Books- science fiction, fantasy, historical, auto biographies. (some of my favorite authors are Terry Brooks, Jean M. Auel, Piers Anthony, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Dean Koontz.)

Music- My taste in music is very diverse. I've listened to everything so far I can get my hands on. But my favorites so far are nature/tribal music, Japanese drums, classical, a few select songs from country, rock, and oldies. I also listen to a lot of anime music, but I don't understand what they're saying so I focus on the instrumental part more.

Pets- I have two cats. One is mine and the other is my husbands. His cat, Ginger, is a tortie and an elderly girl. Mine, Sparta, is nearly 3 years old and very high energy sometimes. He's a wonderful companion for me. Oh, so is my husband.

Movies- My favorite movies lean towards comedy/drama/action sort of things. I just like to go to the movies, turn my brain off and enjoy the show. I really liked Pacific Rim.

TV Shows- I watch Survivor, Iron Chef, Pokemon, Good Eats, Dinner Impossible, CSI, Without a Trace, Cold Case and a few others.

Dislikes- Not being on time for something. Makes me twitch inside. Also, cilantro, celery, spicy food, raw onions, pickles and canned spinach.

What I'm looking for in an LJ friend- Someone who's honestly interested in being friends and not just another name on their list. I don't care how often you update, but I'd like to get to know people somehow so I guess updating is the best way. Have an open mind, like I'm trying to have. Have respect for each others opinions and remember that it's okay to disagree sometimes. Feel free to ask me questions to get to know me better.

Finally, the last bit is a pick of me from about 4 months ago when I got my makeup done for our wedding...
