Hi There! To put this in the simplest of terms, I like to spend my time on the internet, scavenger hunting for Pictures from really old or current movies, TV shows and actors/actresses of my interest. And when I'm not doing that, I'm on Discussion Boards (Forums, whatever you call 'em) reading commentary on Particular TV Shows or Movies. When I'm not doing that, I'm reading FanFiction (or Writing Fanfiction), Browsing LiveJournals, and Listening to music. I'm friendly, I like to talk, but I don't tolerate insults and being belittled from or by anyone. If I disagree with you, then I won't go out of my way to start a fight about it and I'd like the same courtesy.
PRIME RULE - Do not link (re-post) any material on this journal to Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter. (or any other website for that matter.) If I wanted this stuff on those "websites" then I would be putting them there, wouldn't I? Thank you very much.
All Blank Icons Are not Bases, so do not Manipulate them.
If you Decide to take any of the Artwork seen here, please CREDIT ME (I don't care if your using just to show an example of a hair cut you want). Do not claim it as your own.
Please do not HOTLINK any of the graphics or images seen here on this journal.
Do not re-post any Fanfiction, Rants or Reviews on other LJs or websites without Express Permission. Even then, I wouldn't give you permission.
Should I find any of the content I've posted here anywhere else I haven't already put it myself, you will be in a world of pain and trouble.
"I'm not much for public speaking. Or much for speaking. Or, come to think of it, much for the public. And I'm not very good at lying. So let me just say that, in my experience, high school sucks. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have started advanced placement classes in preschool so I could go from eighth grade straight to college. However, given the unalterable fact that high school sucks, I'd like to add that if you're lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares it doesn't have to suck quite as much. Otherwise my advice is; Stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless experience proves you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor IS naked. The truth and a lie are not sort of the same thing. And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza. Thank you." --- Daria (Is it Collage Yet?)
The Shooting Star She Saw:
I will be using this Journal primarily to place some of my Fanfiction, Blogs, Reviews (maybe), and most importantly, my artwork. I've always beeen Fascinated by the lovely array of Icons, headers, Wallpapers and Manipulations I've been able to find on LiveJournal. Before I got a new computer I was using a Photoshop Program on my Windows 98 computer and pasting/cutting images together to make my own personal wallpapers or fool around with the appearances of the pictures on the web. Afterward, I found another art program (I forget the name) which allowed me to do the same thing that my Photshop program allowed me to do, but once I got my the Windows Vista Computer it wouldn't work. I was without an art program for a long time until I dared to look into the GIMP Program and so far its been serving me well and I've learned to do some new things. However, I'm not terribly talented with my GIMP 2.4 Program yet, so don't expect any color popping, flashy Icons, Headers, Banners, Signatures, and Wallpapers like you seen in dozens other LJ-Sites. I have yet to reach that level of time consuming expertise.
In concerns to Fandoms, I really can't say I'm as "Fandom Oriented" as I used to be in my childhood Youth. I'm not terribly big on the overly popular "show" or "movie" of the moment year or decade (take for example: Glee, Twilight, LOST or Supernatural, though with the latter I watch it every now and again when it doesn't grind my nerves into a fine dust with its contrivances and melooverdrama). Typically, I avoid huge fandoms like the ten plagues as most of the time, the content is less than desirable (I hate kinkmemes). I only have a few TV shows I watch nowadays, as in my opinion, TV has truly gone to the dogs (but what generation doesn't say that once everything they've watched vanishes from Syndication?) and what movies, books or tv I like are more or less within the realms of Small Fandom, with the exception of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter (on occasion), Xena and Firefly/Serenity. If your interested in what fandoms or actors am I into, check out the number of communities I affiliate myself with or have created (or browse my journal). That'll pretty much give you all the insight you need. I'm tired of listing my favorite things or people at this point of the game.

“A girl has the right to dream There are endless possibilities stretched out before her What awaits her down the path, she will then have to choose The girl doesn’t always know. At some point the girl then becomes an adult and learns what she is able to become Joy and sadness forever will accompany this She is confronted with a choice. When this happens as she bids his past farewell in her heart Once a girl becomes and adult she can no longer go back to being a girl The girl is now a woman. Only one thing can be said, “A girl has the right to dream” For the those endless possibilities are stretched out before her. We must always remember, all women where once girls…” ----
