So, I've finally gotten around to updating this thing which has been terrifyingly overdue.

I've had a few years worth of a battle with depression which seems to be getting back under control and leading to me suddenly having the energy to live my life again. I'm back in school to learn how to be a nurse and thus have an actual career, but I haven't quite decided exactly what field I want to end up in.

Whatever I do, I want to help people feel better, especially kids and teenagers because that's a hard, hard time for anyone to live through.

I'm profoundly and happily geeky with an intense addiction to the printed word and all things pertaining to fiber arts. I'm also endlessly facinated by Stargates, physics, and giant robots from outer space that turn into stuff, My Little Pony, music, theatre, karoke, and anything with Amanda Tapping.

I tend towards a moderate-to-liberal viewpoint politically, and I am strongly feminist. My view towards other people's lives is very live-and-let-live and that what goes on between consenting adults is absolutely none of my business. If you believe differently, that's perfectly fine and something I respect entirely. Just let me live my life and I'll happily let you live yours.

On the whole, though, I tend to be fluffy, friendly, and perfectly happy to make friends with just about anyone. Do feel free to come check out the journal if you like, and make yourself at home if you like what you see. Just drop me a comment so I know you're there.
