Boosh!

Oh herro there.

My name's Amanda and I am a weird one. I'm a 28 year old creative who draws, paints, plays guitar, and has been a singer in a band for 10 years. I'm still in college and have been working my way through years of trauma in my life (hence why I'm a late bloomer). I've posted here a few times but I think I'll refresh since it's been a while. Like any add_me post, this is just scratching the surface, but if we become friends, you'll soon be emersed in the strange world that is filled with cosmictrashhhhh.

[[Some General Facts About Me, my Journal and I]]

I write mostly about my mental health and the struggle I have with it, but also daily thoughts. Obvious daily happenings. My journal is quite raw and can be filled with profanity and general mind fucks. I like to share music and things I find beautiful. I am very active and post almost every day and I love to read my friends' journals and comment regularly on theirs. For me, it's a two-way street. If you're not active or don't actively comment, sorry...not gonna be a good fit. I like a close-knit community. My journal is definitely not going to be the easiest to read at times but I like to throw in humor and lots of pictures and am a generally positive person. Just my general journey through my mind, my strange fucked up life, and my strange days. I do have PTSD, depression, anxiety, and have suffered from self-injury, continue to suffer from anorexia, and am a multiple suicide attempt survivor. But I'm still here!

Here's my ugly mug.




I LOVE ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE! If you think we'd get along, add me and I'll add you back :D
