So you've built up a world of magic 'cause your real life is tragic.

Keep you feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

I'd like to tell you that I'm a fascinating person with loads of interesting things to say all the time but truth is, I'm not. I'm an American, living in the UK which I suppose, in itself, is a bit of a novelty. Don't ask which I like best. They've both got their good points and both have their bad points. And in the end, they're a lot more similar than most people think. I'm currently on hiatus from University but will attend again in September of 2011 to finish my third and final year of my BSc in Evolutionary Anthropology. I play the viola in the Ormskirk Music Society (though am also taking a hiatus during pregnancy from that, too) and also enjoy playing the euphonium, piano, trombone, tuba, violin and really any musical instrument I can get my hands on. I love horses and horseback riding and try to do it whenever I can. I also enjoy MMORPGs. I've played Final Fantasy XI, then Everquest 2, World of Warcraft, a bit of Lord of the Rings online, Vanguard, before going back to Final Fantasy XI. I have a wonderful husband, Chris (bottled_void), an adorable son called Tristan (born May 11, 2011), and a cat called Dizzy. And...that's pretty much me. Mostly, as far as fandom goes, I like Science Fiction. Currently, my my strongest interest is in Doctor Who and Torchwood. I started watching Doctor Who in 1986 when I was six years old when my local PBS station started airing it. The first Doctor I saw was Peter Davison and he remains my favorite Doctor (and the Master, my favorite villain. Daleks? What Daleks?). I was, of course, thrilled when I'd heard they were starting a new series of Doctor Who and immediately fell in love with it as well. Naturally, I also started watching Torchwood and adore it too (I love Ianto. And you know you love Ianto, too.). I also enjoy Star Wars, Battlestar Gallactica, Heroes, Firefly, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Red Dwarf, Are You Being Served?, and Queer as Folk. When it comes to pairings in fiction, I generally prefer slash in all my fandoms, but I'll read anything if it's good. I do a bit of online roleplaying and run a Doctor Who and Torchwood RPG.
My Journal
Some Links
My journal is really quite random. I don't really do deep, meaningful posts although I suppose I occasionally may have my moments. I don't complain too much. I don't use it as therapy; let's face it, my friends list isn't paid to be my shrink, and I won't enforce that on them. I do do the occasional meme or quiz but I rarely tag people to do it back. I don't go on for the "please justify me" memes so if I don't do it, don't be offended. I sometimes post reviews of movies or TV shows, but I always put them behind a clearly marked cut so no spoilers. I do post pictures sometimes, but again, behind a cut so I don't mess up others' friends list. I do thefridayfive almost every week. Other than that, my journal is mostly just me saying what I'm up to at the moment. bottled_void-This is my husband's journal.

sprinkledonut-This is my awesome little sister's journal.

ambakin-Occasionally, I make icons or write fics. Very seldomly, but I do. If I do, generally it gets posted at this journal.

time_and_crack-This is my Doctor Who and Torchwood RPG. It's a crack RPG with plots. So silly sometimes, serious sometimes. If you like DW or TW, drop by or IM me. It's loads of fun and we can always use new players.

My Facebook-I check this occasionally but it's mostly to keep up with my friends from highschool. But feel free to friend me.

My Myspace-I don't check this too often, but feel free to friend me.
