i'm on facebook. if you wanna add me, say "youre on my LJ" so i know it's you.

theTudors 「Sir Thomas More」
MarieAntoinette 「Count Axel von Fersen」

Friending Policy Add me if you want. My journal is 95% friends only (mainly because there's some real jerks and trolls out there on the internet), but am always looking for new friends. Just comment on a random entry so I know, m-kay? That way I can check out your journal, too. You don’t have to update every day. Hell, I don’t. And you don’t have to comment on my journal every day.

listen to Syler. add me if you wanna read my journal

My journal is friends only. No filters. I cuss like a drunken sailor, I occasionally post TMI (you will be warned first tho), and I bitch and rant (sometimes). Not into drama, as I have enough of it with the in-laws. I love making new friends.

Land of the FREE because of the BRAVE
from itsalovescene

I'm 33 (eek), married to a great Navy guy, and we have 1 son. Number 2 is expected to arrive in March or April. I'm a stay-at-home mom. And I'm attempting to start a photography business (I'd love to get into wedding photography). I'm a city girl and I bet if we went camping I'd be the one to bring back the mysterious poison berries and make dinner outta them. I dont drink (do I care if you do? no), I dont do drugs (do I care if you do? no), and sometimes I dont use apostrophes in my contractions.

I dont force my beliefs on anyone, and I dont want anyone to push theirs on me, either. :) I'm spiritual, not religious...of the paganistic variety, tho I do have some Catholic/Jewish/Methodist beliefs stuffed in there. I tend to gravitate toward the darker things in life, from hanging out in cemeteries and taking pictures of old tombstones, to memento mori (Victorian Era death photography). I have a fascination with Nazi Germany (namely the Nazi Doktors), and the psychology of the Holocaust and serial killers. Still wanna be friends with me? LOL.

I am Pagan. Basically for my whole life it seems, I had an obsession with Ares (Greek god of War) since I was about 5. It evolved into full-blown Paganism by the time I was 18. I'm eclectic, solitary, and basically take things from everywhere and incorporate it into my own thing. Main deities are Hekate, Brigit, Isis, Persephone, and Hera; Hades, Ares, Anubis, and Inari. But I never ever push things on anyone. I'm interested in all belief systems, and respect others' beliefs. I dont mind discussing my own if someone's interested.

this video seriously makes me cry every time i watch it

my goal in keeping this journal is to document the journeys, growth, discoveries, triumphs, and failures. i'm on a never-ending quest to find my purpose, my true self. i'm ready to re-invent myself into something better than what everyone else expects out of me.

what you can find in my LJ :
++ my husband, son, family & in-laws.
++ venting and ranting, just because i can...it's my journal :)
++ pics of me, my husband (aka my model), and my son, family, friends, my town and other towns and stuff.
++ there's some stuff about my pregnancy.
++ spiritual journey. i love religion. and history. i love history.
++ talk about my feelings.
++ some talk about sex life and such.
++ everyday life; what happens in my life and my reaction to it. family matters, pets, etc.
++ memes, quizzes, and surveys, usually stolen from somewhere.
++ weirdness such as dreams (sometimes including interpretations, whenever I feel like it), reincarnation, and other occult stuff.
++ news articles I find interesting. sometimes with my thoughts on the articles.

Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
- Goethe

I shall never believe that God plays dice with the world.
– Albert Einstein

Wherever they burn books they will also, in the end, burn human beings.
– Heinrich Heine

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once.
– Albert Einstein
