I AM ON FACEBOOK NOW AND RARELY DO MYSPACE: http://www.facebook.com/monkeywriter

You are about to enter the mind of a young almost 33 something year old woman/girl/lady who has thoughts and this journal is seen from her "Point of View." You may not agree with them but I ask you still consider who I am and what I am talking about. Each journal (with few exceptions) starts out "Dear Friend" and the reason is simply I dont have a name yet for this journal. However "dear friend" is more personal then my first entries of "dear journal" and that way I'm talking both to the journal of which I write in and those who decide to read it (hence the "friend" is a reference to the journal and the friend). I have never thought of it as a real journal. Its more of a "Here I am, Heres updates, Here is what I am feeling,etc." Yes I DO keep a REAL journal live not from here but written in by hand. I named that journal after years and years of writing in different ones. I named it "Roxy" and I am in my second "Roxy" journal. Although she got her name half way through the first journal. I am almost done with "Roxy"#2 and I have a third "Roxy" but we are getting to know each other again. I havent written in her for months and sometimes years and now I am finally finding joy again in really writing (my only complaint being my hands always hurt after a page which is usually (but not always) stop!). I except all friends (but I do not promise to add you back but more then likely I will!). This area is huge and takes a while to read but few things change once read the first time except updates that follow this newly added section! I have updates, why I use this name, a note on dating, something about me, some funky facts, 2 quotes I love and the who's who in my journal (subject to change!). Thank you for reading whoever you are. Read on and enjoy reading something from MY point of view!

The Part of You That No One Sees

You are passionate, romantic, and emotional.
You put love first in your life, even though you have often been disappointed by it.
You expect to be swept of your feet, and you never expect infatuation to die out.

Underneath it all, you are scared that you aren't lovable.
Your insecurity has ruined many relationships, as you are unable to see the love that's really there.
You are secretly afraid of being alone. Confronting your insecurities is incredibly painful.

You Are 60% Shy

Although you live a pretty normal life, you tend to be a fairly shy person.
Many situations make you feel uncomfortable, and you sometimes find your shyness hindering your life.

"It's a wonder these people find their way out of their homes every morning."--Richard RoeperSchlock Value <---please applie that quote to all lego guests thanx! (see entry April 3rd 2005 for further details!)

The Following Journal Is About Me! Its not about you, or them, or the world. Its about my life. I am pretty free spirited and I have things I believe in that my parents dont agree with.

First off I'm a Christian. But that doesnt mean I dont want friends or dont accept people who arent so. I love all people and I am open to anyone despite what you believe, if you swear and so on and so fourth...

A bit about me just some funky facts:
With a wonderful degree in communcations from Vanguard University in 2004 you'd think I had a nice job by now!! No I.DO.NOT. Instead I am still stuck in retail, but have recently discovered that complaining doesnt do anything and God cant guide me if I am not moving. So instead I need to stop being lazy and just move and groove or I wont get anywhere fast! I got a certificate from CSB School of Broadcasting last year. I got an internship in AZ for Summer 2011 at FOX10 News best 4 month of my life! And now I am working on getting ANOTHER my internship that will lead to my dream job. Check out my myspace below or here http://www.myspace.com/entertainmentbroadcaster I update weekly with a video & blog!!

So me and my sister moved to TN in Nov 2007. Away from our home in Oceanside we shared with our parents for a year. We moved there in November 2006 after (sadly) my grandma died in May 2006 :*(( Yeah I still miss her! We wanted to be out on our own so we traveled to lovely Tennessee. Its nice out here but so different and its not a forever spot. Call it our first stop of many on the road to our final home. I sound like my favorite show Quantum Leap "hoping the next leap will be the leap home" Well I am hoping the next move will be where I will call home. Currently its NOT!

We came with my pet hamster Tinkerbell (got in April 2007 died in August 2008, my cat Princess, Mels cat Maggie and my little dog Rainbow. Then we got here. We lost Tink in August the following year, and a month later as we planned to get two gerbils two kittens were dropped on us. It was just for a few days...yeah right. Then it turned into well a full year, we gave up and love them. And yes we are supposed to have 2 pets we currently have 5. Princess is doing so well and so we may be down to 4 pretty soon :*(( Much prayers. For now we love them still Rocky & Jackie. Plus ours still Princess, Maggie & Rainbow.

UPDATE 2012 on living & pets: We moved to AZ in July 2010 and had to leave in September 2011. Now we are back with our parents in Oceanside since last year. Also Princess died in January 2010 miss her a lot, we still have the other cats, and Rainbow so we have 3 cats, 1 dog.

This is who I am. I dont pretend to be anyone else. I am trusting, I am loving but I am cautious because life and people have hurt me way too much. I am growing up. 33 in December and found my first 5 gray hairs few weeks ago. Yes I am older, wiser but not married. I still want to be married, have at least 2 kids of my own, and live in New York. Waiting on God, and finding my career and hoping a nice guy will take me for the ride as my finances are too harsh to ever get there on my own. I dream BIG do you?? :))

God bless all who read!!

"PRAYER changes things; worry changes nothing."

"WHEN you're feeling overwhelmed, remember to take things one at a time--one day at a time."

Odds and ends:
I bite my fingernails, I have A.D.D. (the quiet version), I am a strange person and love to quote "normal is just the setting on the dryer" cause I dont act normal, I act like a kid I still love cartoons and I collect kid things, I've never dated anyone at all period! (so YES this means I've never been kissed! I'm like Josie in "Never Been Kissed" I'm almost 33 and never been kissed!), I love to collect movie ads from the SHOW section and ballet pictures for my folder (VERY full!), I collect the cover off every magazine I dont keep and tear apart and keep those in a folder cause its cool!, I love movie posters but only own one and would love a room full of just my favorite movie posters, I have one great friend now since my best friend ditched me this year after being BFF for 14 years, & I hope I am gaining a new friendship again with the guy I love,I do swear sometimes but only when I am really pissed off, if a movie has swearing any word is not as bad as using Gods name with D*** even the *F* word!, I hurt my knee in 1998, operation 1999 and its forever not a good knee for me (its the left one) and has left me changed forever.

I want to date but at the same time I didnt. Years ago when I saw my now ex-high school friends going through guy problems from breaking up I realized I'm too loyal to date someone and have them break my heart. So I asked God about 3 years ago or 4 years? 4 years ago that NO guy ask me out unless he is the "one" I will marry. So more then likely I will kiss only one guy the one I will marry. Sounds sweet hey? I get lonely at times and wish for someone but I remember this request. I believe God is honoring that since a few guys I thought cute could be more at school friends went out of my life quickly as they came. I have had three people/guys ask me out (twice in high school and one outside of high school) so I have also had guys like me/crush on me. They just never asked me out (I WOULD HAVE SAID YES AT THE TIME!). I may have liked/loved/crushed on one guy in high school but gave up on him being the one after our reunion last year. Now I'm trusting God to bring my mr right along. God knows my schedule I dont need to be anywhere special and God can bring "him" along. So I pray for "him" daily and watch and know when we are BOTH ready for us to meet "he" will come into my life and we will be together for all eternity. Amen to that!
