free speech trumps tradition
|Bio:||Of Note: If you friend me, I will friend you back. If I haven't friended you back the reason is that I didn't know you friended me. Drop a comment on any post and when I next get on here, I'll be sure to add you. |
Also of Note: If you are here because I friended you welcome. I'm happy you came to check my profile out. I've probably friended you because I've seen you around and like your posts. If you haven't seen me, that's because I'm a horrible lurker. Feel free to browse around though as most of my posts are public and see if you'd like to friend me back.
AND NOW THE BIO:
I hate writing bios. There is always so much I could say. I guess its good to start off with what this journal's purpose it. It is here as a place to publicly post my writings both fictional and in real life. This will include personal info, thoughts, reflections, rants, poems, short stories, novels, and whatever else I want. I love that people are interested in reading my works. I love comments, thoughts, and opinions too. Still, this journal is first and foremost for my own use and for my records of how I was feeling, what I had written at the time period, what events were going on, ect. Sometimes I'll post a ton and sometimes I'll post nothing.
I'm highly opinionated and lots of my opinions are considered "Deviant from the norm", if this bothers you: don't read my journal.
Sometimes I will post adult themes and content. I will try to post warnings particularly for fictional works or critiques, but I don't always know where my real world updates will go so there are generally no warnings there. Besides that, this journal started in 2004 and I haven't gone through those entries to post warings at all. If you read back, there will be no warnings of any sort before 2007. I consider this blanket announcement warning enough: read at you own risk some topics may be difficult for some readers.
Alright on to a bit about me. I'm a generally upbeat person filled with lots of energy. I love reading things that are lighter and funny, but my views on life in general are often more dark and cynical. I do struggle with depression. I do have several anxiety disorders. I am aware that both these issues color not only my view on life but how I show that too, and I do my best to try to maintain grounded. Sometimes this is through ranting at myself and sometimes its through writing overly objectively and sometimes its all about refocusing. Any way you slice it though there are shades of insanity in the journal (which is amusing because I am at ij).
I do write a lot of fiction and some fan fiction and I love when people comment on it. I promise to comment on yours if you comment on mine, though be warned that I'm honest about what I think and why I think that. If you're sensitive to critique, you probably should tell me before I comment. I'm not sensitive about any criticism you give me. I will ALWAYS point out examples in you work if I have something negative to say.
To find my writing in my journal try the tags.
My main interests include discussing religion, reading, writing, keeping up with differing women's issues, creating, finding, and being part of positive and intellectual communities. I love DDR, quite a bit (which is a random interjection but worth saying anyway). I also love to read (you might call it a passion), most of the stuff is fantasy or manga, but I also read a wide range of other materials.
As far as religions go I'm spiritual Eclectic Pagan with Reiki influences and I also practice reiki. More details are in the journal if you look under "spiritual" for a tag.
Lets see what else is there that you might want to know about me.... my music tastes are across the boards, though I'm not a big fan of most rap, hip-hop, or country. My primary favorite kinds of songs are rock, techno, and some folk. Oh and for anyone who cares PROFANATION by Bernstein ROCKS MY SOCKS!!!!
I hope that you enjoy my live journal and at least find my life mildly entertaining! Thanks for visiting and come again...or don't I really don't care.
