This journal is basically a spot for me to talk about nothing in particular. I may talk about the boring shit that's going down in my life, or I may wax philosophical about a book I've read or the daily news. It depends upon my mood, which is fickle and flighty.
As for me, I am an unemployed but hopeful wannabee novelist. I have worked freelance in the past, but it really isn't to my taste (read: it totally stresses me out, man!). I have an account on Fanfiction.net that I haven't used in an age, and although I have dabbled in Harry Potter fanfiction, I prefer to stick to my original fiction. I usually stick to Fantasy, although I have dabbled in various other genres. My writing tends to be fairly dark, although I am not the severely depressed border-line Goth with no sense of humour that people who know me personally seem to think. I adore humour, especially really clever humour (I suppose that's why I like Terry Pratchett). I've written a few humourous pieces of my own, and they seemed to go over pretty well--although my sense of humour is a little quirky at times.
I am in the midst of a second attempt at college, majoring in Computer Programming and Game Development. I figured this would be a good way to take two of my great loves, writing stories and playing video games, and merge them together. So far, it's going well.
In case you were wondering, I am of the female persuasion.
I love to read, I love to write, and I love to play video games. I also crochet in my spare time, which I have plenty of as of now. I like to sketch, too, but I suck at it.
I am also a lone liberal feminist trapped in Conservative-ville. Please send help!
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. People seem shocked when I tell them this, until they start to think about it. I am very high-functioning, but I still have trouble with some things (like, for example, OTHER PEOPLE).
