[sticky post] Info Post  
SEMI FRIENDS ONLY

I've gradually switched over to a semi-friends only format, where personal entries are friends only and only fics and graphics are public and as I've been adding new friends recently, I've come to realize how beneficial one of these info posts might be lol.



So, not gonna lie, I stole this format from nickeldreams lol. I'm adding some of my own stuff though.


The Super Basics
Name: Kelly
Age: 24
Also: I'm a pretty liberal person, I vote NDP (New Democratic Party) so if you're like REALLY conservative and are the type of person to instigate political disputes discussions, please don't add me. I want to voice my opinion on my journal without worrying about starting anything.
And you should know: I'm opinionated, passionate, and stubborn. I won't push my opinions on you, but I'll defend them like a mama bear protecting her cubs if you challenge them. And I don't like drama, so I don't enjoy that kind of confrontation.

Family and Friends
My family is just me, my mom and my dad. I have a half-brother and a half-sister, but I haven't seen them (or my niece and nephew) since I was like 8. They don't want anything to do with us, so I just consider myself an only child.

I don't have a lot of friends since I'm social phobic, but I have one friend left from college that I travel with (Kelly), a good friend I met through riding and who was my college roommate (Emma), and nicole_nut, even though we don't get to see each other much anymore.

Getting Personal
Height: 5'2"
Hair: Mousy brown, which I hate, so I dye it a lot. I prefer to be blonde but am currently (and reluctantly) a brunette. Length wise, my hair is usually somewhere between 'just below my shoulders' and 'down to my chest'. It's naturally curly/wavy but I always straighten it if I'm going anywhere other than the barn or a horse show.
Eyes: Brown
Scars/tattoos/piercings: I currently have several scars on my stomach from getting my gallbladder removed and having a mole removed. Most of my other scars have faded now I think. I have my pony Kelpie's name tattooed on the inside of my left ankle. My ears are usually pierced, but they close over really easily and I think I need to get them redone again.
Accent: Neutral I guess. Some people say they can tell the difference between me and an neutral American accent so I guess I have some kind of extremely subtle Canadian accent or something lol.
Relationship: Still haven't had my first boyfriend... embarrassing, yes.
Occupation: Currently I'm just a braider, and I make and sell hair bows. I'm an aspiring horse and pony trainer/dealer though. I hope one day to be able to have my own sales barn.

School Stuff
Highest level of education: I graduated college in travel and tourism, and before that I did a year of university in biology.
Future plans: I'm currently pursuing a degree in Sociology (with a concentration in Criminology) with a minor in Psychology.
College plans: I didn't really like college, so I don't know if I'd go back.

Favorites
Color: Purple
Food: Pizza, pasta, marble slab creamery lol.
Drink: Water. I mostly just drink water.
Animal: Horse
Place to go: Australia
Book: I don't know if I have a single favourite. I love crime novels though.
TV show: My favourite show changes from time to time lol
Movie: The Interpreter, but I love most of what Nicole Kidman has been in.
Subject: Foreign languages
Couple: I think Jane/Lisbon have taken over the top spot, followed closely by Castle/Beckett.
Clothing: Concert t-shirts
Season: Spring
Candy: Mini peanut butter cups - the mini ones taste better, I don't care what anyone says.
Quote: "I would never lie. I willfully participated in a campaign of misinformation." -- Fox Mulder
"Sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you're not a winner." -- Lady Gaga
“Don’t be afraid to be exactly who you are, because that’s what separates you in the world." -- Lady Gaga

The Bad
Habits: Swearing, procrastinating, sleeping too much during the day and staying up too late
Qualities: Self-depricating, impatient
Fears: Snakes, spiders, deep water, never getting married, losing my parents
Stuff I'd like to be good at that I'm not: Dancing! I cannot dance without set choreography to save my life, and it makes going out or going to concerts or parties kind of awkward because I can't dance with everyone without looking like a moron.

The Good
Talents: Horseback riding, singing, creative problem solving, bullshitting
Things I like to do: Horseback ride, sing, cheerleading, sleep, cuddle with my dog, read, shop online, play facebook games

Life essentials
1. My laptop/the internet. My mom once told a hotel worker that taking internet away from me was like taking someone off life support lmao.
2. My chihuahua
3. Music/singing
4. My mom
5. Lady Gaga
6. Delta Goodrem
7. Horseback riding
8. Medication and therapy
9. Stuff to keep me busy, I get depressed with too much free time

Apparently the friend request on equestrian worked well. :)

I'm Canadian and NDP, I love Castle (though I'm horribly behind in the new episodes), I have an appaloosa named Sevin (which I talk about constantly), and I'm obsessive over Criminal Minds (though I ship more Morgan/Garcia than anything).

Add?

Hey there! Wow, that's a lot of info!

One thing we have in common: purple! :D

Also, we seem to have all the bad habits in common haha:Swearing, procrastinating, sleeping too much during the day and staying up too late. Yay for bad habits!

Wow, you have a lot of pets! I only have one, a really psycho cocker spaniel whom i love to bits. I plan to be a horse owner some day, for now I have to stick to weekly riding lessons *sigh*

Here from equestrian!

Oh man, I was excited to read how you feel about politics; I feel the same way! Though, I thoroughly enjoy a good healthy debate (key word: debate) about them. But I would never, ever ruin a relationship or "force" someone to believe as I believe. I have an extremely open mind and do not judge. (Well, I DO judge ... but only if the situation is crazy or something.)

And then I got even more excited that you like the X-Files! I was a HUGE fan when the show was on - totally obsessed with the Mulder/Scully relationship. Oh, I was SUCH a nerd for them... hah!

I swear like a sailor. I'm a terrible procrastinator. (Doing it right now!) There's something about deep water (lakes, oceans, etc) that just freaks me out ...

Yeah, we have a lot in common. My journal is mostly f-only, but there are a couple of entries here and there. Adding you!

fbi_woman: XF - Moviefbi_woman on November 20th, 2011 05:33 am (UTC)
Adding back!

Omg Mulder and Scully were my first ever ship lol. I watched that dance at the end of Post-Modern Prometheus waaaaaaaay too many times... and still smile every time I see it :P.
luxekittenluxekitten on November 20th, 2011 01:24 pm (UTC)
Another from your equestrian post!

A quick run through of things in common....I'm in Australia, love horses/my horse, Lady Gaga fan, agree that mini peanut butter cups taste better (the ratio is just right), have a menagerie of cats, dogs and horses (well 1 cat, 1 horse at 2 dogs atm) and ummm.... I'm thinking about going back to uni to do psych!

Denali's momfoalstory on November 20th, 2011 06:43 pm (UTC)
hey ya :) this is my horse journal (it got too spammy when I was juggling multiple horse training logs a few years ago so created this lj) so it's typically *just* going to be horse stuff, riding logs, etc.

smallhoundsmallhound on November 21st, 2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
Here from equestrian! LOL

Fellow NDP-er as well. I need to make more pony posts but I always enjoy reading about other people's ponies. Especially since you seem to have a few welshies. I own a welsh pony mare named Scarlet, as well as my ancient appy pony mare.

Another one from equestrian comm.

I'll gladly welcome any fellow horse lover on my flist :D

My journal is not only horse-concentrated because I write about my life in general but horses are a part of it.

I swear a lot and I mostly just drink water too ;)

You can find some info about me in my profile.
