"flowers i can do without/i don't want to be tied down/.../i'm not trying to cause a fuss/i just wanna make my own fuckups" - "pocket knife," by p.j. harvey

* Just graduated from Los Angeles-area university with a bachelor's degree in journalism
* As of late August 2007: working as a copy editor/page designer at a daily newspaper near Fresno
* Reads far too much to be considered even slightly normal
* Eternally single and likes it that way
* Unwinds with Chipotle, Grey's Anatomy, Veronica Mars, vodka, horrible chick lit, and other various personal pursuits ;)
* Sacramento native
* Everything you could want...and nothing you'd expect.

I'm slowly beginning to understand and sympathize with my mother and that makes me frightened beyond all belief.


This is all friends-locked. I don't have some weird superiority complex - I'm hardly the most interesting person to ever walk the earth, but I do have humor and good writing on my side. But there are people who could read this who I don't want reading this. So.
