About Me: True to form, I have tried starting this bio about 5 times now. Everything I start to write becomes way too involved and overly personal, so I've decided to resort to my usual solution to these things - a list. - happily married - no kids - two cats - southern liberal (this gets very frustrating at times) - lover of animals, nature, good food, good wine, music, books - hater of injustice, ignorance (in myself and others), and roaches
About My Journal: Since we all have different journaling styles, I've decided to try and summarize what you will find in mine so that there are no nasty surprises. First and foremost, I am, and seemingly always will be, a sporadic poster. I go through periods where I can't get enough of LJ, and will post very frequently, sometimes multiple times a day. Then, I inevitably begin to feel that my life is too boring for words, literally, and stop posting. This also happens when I'm going through something in my life that I don't feel like facing head-on. I wish I could change this trend, and have tried several times. However, I've followed this stop and go pattern ever since I started my first paper diary over 20 years ago. I don't think this habit will go away any time soon. If you can't handle that, don't friend me.
This journal has changed a lot as I have changed. It used to be mainly for analyzing my dating highs and lows. I also complained a lot, and agonized about feelings of depression. As I've gotten older, especially since getting married, I seem to use it more as a place to record my opinions and observations. I've also started using it more as a place to track current goals. Of course, this is a journal, and I'll cry if I want to, but overall, it is now a much happier place than it used to be.
There used to be a lot of sex talk here, hence the warning that my journal may contain adult concepts. I've backed off almost completely from the subject for a while now, but am not ashamed to talk about it. If this makes you uncomfortable, don't friend me.
I used to curse like a sailor, and still use expletives freely in certain company. When I write, I tend to use other means of expressing myself, but by no means are my posts always curse-free. I also don't have a scale in my head ranking one word worse than another. I use them all. If this bothers you, don't friend me.
I'm a pretty non-judgmental person, and even if I don't agree with you, I hate confrontation, so 9 times out of 10 I'll just keep my opinions to myself. I enjoy feeling free to post anything on here, and don't want that compromised by spiteful or preachy people. I am respectful of others, and expect the same in return.
I think I've said quite enough. If you still feel like adding me after all of that, thanks, and happy journaling!
