I'm beyond your regular classifications. I don't like generalizations and labels. I'm a walking contradiction sometimes and my thoughts/style/actions/interests change often. Sometimes it's hard to put up with all of my past drama and, thus, I write about it. I've been through a lot, and since then have persevered, to be cheesy. Also, I got rid of most of my drama, although some of the crazy people still follow me wherever I go. What can I say? I'm a magnet for crazies. Maybe that's why I have a degree in Psychology and work with people. Maybe it's because I'm crazy myself.

I changed my career within the last year and a half, from that of a mental health counselor to working as a buyer/manager. I love my job, I travel a lot and it invoves one of my biggest hobbies! I am the first female in my position in my state! It is definitely my career for many years to come. Oh, and I am also finishing up working on my Master's in Social Work. As you can see, I am one busy woman!

I don't write really personal things for people to read, I mark those entries 'private.' I mainly keep this journal as a 'diary' for myself. It helps me to sort out my feelings and thoughts sometimes. Sometimes, I use it as a medium to meet people and to post less-personal and more entertaining things.
Sometimes, I use it as a medium for my my daily life craziness that doesn't really exist anymore.

I have many interests. I've been through a lot. I've lived in many places around the world. I speak several languages. I don't have too many friends. I like people. I'm a career woman. I am well off in life, both mentally and financially, after much struggle. I want children, I want marriage, but all in a good time. I consider myself pretty and nice, most of the time. I am happily taken. I love my Sweetie dearly and there is no chance for anyone else.

I used to be many things. I am many things. The best way to get to know me is to become my friend. Second best way is to read this journal and check out my interests from below. I update at least once a week, and I do it my way. I do know how to use the lj-cut and similar features, but I prefer not to use them in this journal. If big, long entries bother you, maybe you shouldn't read this.

You can steal any icons that I have. I've stolen all of them at one time or the other. Except for a few that some of my technologically-savvy friends made for me.

If you see any similarities between the two of us, or just plain feel like adding me, go ahead! I can't promise that I'll add you back, though. It's not because I don't like you, but I may not find anything in common between the two of us and not feel like reading your journal. Most of the time, I friend the people back.

Happy reading!
