Friends Only? Man, this girl is insane. . .
So the other day (which, as it turns out, was actually today) I got to thinking, and I concluded that this LJ has, in fact, gone FO. And, this being the case, this would probably be the entry anyone who has not yet friended/been friended by me would probably comment on to have one or both of the previously mentioned actions occur.
You may notice that there are several entries that are not, for lack of correct terminology, FO'd. These posts only talk about writing (mostly FF), so I felt no need to FO them.
So who am I? If you must know, I'm a student who constantly comes up with novel novel ideas (ahaha) but never gets around to writing them. I've done NaNoWriMo for four years now, and the rest of my writing comes in either short story format (mostly Harry Potter fanfiction, because I'm super cool) or poetry. I write really stupid poems. Really, really stupid. Like, I like gimicks and all that.
I love Harry Potter, LOST, The Office, Shakespeare, etc., etc. I'm generally a fan of everything I'm exposed to and can quite quickly form obsessions (I started reading fanfiction before I finished reading the Harry Potter series; I form ships pretty much the instant I see romantic spark and cling onto them forever and ever ...). Ex: I will always always always ship Jack/Kate based primarily on their scene together in the pilot when he tells her to count to five. James/Lily belong together, no Sirius or Remus or Snape or anything. OH, and I think if I had a favorite character his name would be Hamlet and he would still be alive. To me, good characters are like old friends who always welcome you back after extended absences.
If you are having doubts about my sanity, I must assure you that I have been insane since the fall of '04. I can think of at least five people who can verify this. Actually, only five. But still.
I'm pretty shy in RL but I'm getting over that. I've become a newspaper nerd over the course of my stay on LJ and you can trace this growing obsession if you feel like going back three years into the realm of outdated posts. It's kind of funny. I used to be confused about everything that went into newspaper production, but now I eat sleep breathe it.
I'm a Christian and a conservative but my political views aren't completely shaped yet so I tend to veer away from conversations into which I have no business butting. I love old movies. I think quotations are marvelous things and good books inspire me. It would be really cool to become a photographer but I know I don't have the patience. I think the FOMC and economic indicators are kind of really cool.
Now what about you? Tell me who you are, how you stumbled across my LJ, and possibly what common interests we share. I'm really quite friendly and open about my LJ because I make sporadic posts here and there, so I'll most likely friend you back (no, honestly. Even if I don't know you. Even if you're a stalker. Of course, when I find out that you're a stalker, I'll bring up my Perverted-Justice connection and then BAM! No more you).
Anyway. I guess that's it. I do not expect anything to come from this post, but I figured that it was sort of missing, so here it is. Comment or always wonder what I had to say. Your choice.
P.S. I update this as my interests change and whenver I have nothing better to do.
