My name is Jacqueline, I'm a 20 year-old English Literature student at a University in Manhattan, and I currently reside in Brooklyn, New York (although I suppose if we're being technical that's a lie because I am presently living at home for the remainder of the summer to work, haha, but I am in and out of the city!) I've been an active member of LiveJournal for as long as I can remember, however, I let this journal and the entirety of LiveJournal, in general, go, in the middle of my Junior year of High School. However, I've made the decision to return so I'm looking for some new friends to help jump start this venture! That being said, I'd like to use my journal as a mediation of my thoughts, feelings, opinions and day-to-day occurances. I'm also an aspiring writer (although, who on LiveJournal isn't? haha) so I'm probably going to also feature some of my work on my journal, as well.
Although I'd like to think of myself as a well-rounded individual, I suppose my lifestyle and a lot of my choices would be deemed contriversial, if not downright offensive, to many. I'm bisexual/pansexual with a preference for women, and, in addition, I recently got out of a very serious relationship with a wonderful girl who I'm still a little bit on and off with so as a forewarning, I can forsee a good bit of my journal discussing her and I, haha (definitely not to excess, though, no worries!) I've also struggled with addiction to both alcohol and drugs for over 4 years of my life now, and while I truly believe I am at a better place than I have ever been with all of that, I still drink and use frequently. I'm opinnionated and head-strong, so I'm sure I'll also be discussing politics and other things of a similiraily controversial nature so while I'm totally receptive to hearing/reading opinions that happen diverge from my own, if you don't think you can get down with my ~liberal ass~, I'd encourage you not to add me. Also as another warning, my journal still has a lot of my High School "left overs" in it so please try not to judge me off of that, haha...I promsie I'm different!
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to getting back into LiveJournal and I'm equally excited to get to know some of you so either leave a comment here or on my "friends only post" and I'd love to add you back :)
