FRIENDS ONLY, COMMENT TO BE ADDED. Sorry, feeling a little paranoid and I wanted to lock all my entries down.
I'm working as a paralegal in a soul sucking job now but I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I live on my own and recently started grad school, so I'm juggling that and a full time job.
I'm a pretty emotional person and I tend to make long posts reflecting on my life thus far. I like to think they are intellectual but they are more than likely just stupid. I have a weird sense of humor and find odd things funny.
I, like other single 20somethings, am eternally trying to find someone to connect with. Sometimes I feel like I will be an eternal singleton much like Bridget Jones.
I've had my LJ for over eight years now and I mostly post about my real life. So...if you don't want to read about me...don't add me!
I have a strange obsession with fanfic, I read all kinds and many different fandoms. I've been reading fanfic since I was at least 16, first fandom being Dawson's Creek (PACEY/JOEY 4EVA!!!!!111) right after the first season aired.
I also like to write. Of course, I'm terrified of showing anyone my writing, so I have a few random poems posted here and there, but I mostly keep my writing to myself. I do have a community I've started to keep all of my graphic and writings in one place. simplysomething is the place to find it.
I've recently gotten into making icons and wallpapers and such with Photoshop. I've improved a lot since I first got it and it's become a new obsession with me.
I also like to read a lot.
I also really, really like music. I used to be a band geek in high school (trombone, the only girl) and I like to listen to all kinds. Currently my favorite bands/musicians are Spoon, Sufjan Stevens, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Imogen Heap, Snow Patrol, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, Pinback, The White Stripes, South, Tom McRae so on and so forth. I've recently started listening to a random music and just sometimes it really speaks for what I'm going through at the moment.
I also am really into politics, I don't talk about it a whole, whole lot, but I'm pretty liberal and I'm able to handle other points of view (I went to one of the most conservative colleges in the country, and I didn't kill anyone!) but I try to steer away from bashing other points of view.
