I enjoy meeting new people here on LJ! That's one of the best things about the site. I enjoy making friends all over, from all backgrounds. I believe that everyone has something to offer. And seeing life through different eyes on here has made me really grow as a person. I don't have a 'friending policy'. If I did, it would be "More friends!" I don't really care if you comment all the time, or not at all. I like comments, sure, but I understand. I myself am not an overzealous commenter. I will if I feel I have something to add, or if you ask for advice, or if I'm very happy or sad over something you wrote. I don't do friends cuts, but if I notice that you've taken me off your friends list, I'll probably take you off mine. No hard feelings at all! I know that people change and whatnot.
If you have a problem with liberal views...this probably isn't the journal for you. I have conservative friends on here, but they're open-minded. I don't mind reading their views and they don't mind reading mine. But if you are easily offended by a liberal mindset and friend me to either conservatize me...or convert me to your religion...you should probably just move along :)
If you do add me to your friends list, please let me know in a comment on this post here. I usually check regularly for new people, but it's nice to know!
As for this journal, it really has no rhyme or reason. I journal a lot about my day-to-day life. Sometimes (ok a lot) I rant about work. Sometimes I link to things that I find interesting, amusing, or annoying. Sometimes I do memes. And sometimes I even get on a topic and ramble on for a long time about it. The bottom line is that you can expect me to put just about anything on my journal.
I have tons of interests...a lot more than are listed below. I love learning, so I read a lot. Some of the things I read...whether in books, or on the internet...may seem either bizarre, frightening, disgusting, or even immoral to some people. But I don't feel that I can make my own judgments and decisions and opinions on anything unless I know about it. Just because I read about it doesn't mean I do it or believe it.
Now that being said, I actually lean very left of center, though I can admit there are some things that pull me right. I'm very liberal/progressive. I believe in human and animal rights. I believe that people can love whom they choose. I believe that homosexuality is a good thing. I believe that women should have the right to choose. I believe in protecting the environment. Where did my 2008 charity/contributions go to? National Wildlife Society, Greenpeace, Michigan Humane Society, CT Humane Society, NARAL, Human Rights Campaign, Barack Obama's campaign fund, World Wildlife Fund, Planned Parenthood, a local charity for mentally handicapped children, Amnesty International and the ACLU. Does that give an indication of where my opinions lie?
I am also very spiritual and identify most with Paganism. It took me a long time to reach this point where I am HAPPY with what I believe! Whatever your religion, I am happy for you. I will not try to change you! I just ask for the same courtesy. I just think it's more important to be a good person, help other living beings, and nourish the earth.
I am goofy, sometimes immature, moody, positive and a lot of other things. I am a double Cancer, so I have all the typical Cancer characteristics...intensified, making me very sentimental, selfish (at times), introverted, nostalgic, and crabby :)
I have big dreams and am often frustrated that they either contradict each other, have no specific direction, or have no hope of coming true. My ultimate dream would be to move to Europe...but I really can't see that happening...at least not any time soon. I got one taste of Europe in 2007 and am so anxious to go back and explore as much as possible. Other cultures and ways of living fascinate me!
I am a good and loyal and supportive friend. I'm the kind of friend you like to take shopping, because I will encourage you to buy everything that you like. I will be honest with you too, if you ask my opinion. If you are still reading, you might as well add me :)
