Describe yourself with 5 words: sincere, funny, honest, blunt and sarcastic

What is your biggest pet peeve?: Being late! I can't stand it if I'm late to anything.

What is your biggest disappointment?: Quitting piano and ballet. I guess I should have continued with those thing, it would have been cool now that I think about it.

If you could change one thing about you, what would it be?: The way I gain weight like crazy, even if I watch what I eat.

What is the one thing that has kept you going, no matter what?: Knowing that I am going to be in college soon and getting away from my parents.

Do you have a role-model? If so, who and why?: Johnny Depp because he is a great actor, in my opinion. I love how he doesn't care about what anyone thinks about him, he dresses however he wants, he seems like he doesn't have a care in the world. I want to be like that.


What's Your Opinion On...

War: I'm against it because one of my good friends is at war right now and my cousin is about to go back. Maybe it's just the way I view things, but I think that issues do not have to be solved using violence.

Homosexual/Bi-Racial Relationships: I'm for any type of relationship. I think that it shouldn't matter who you fall in love with/wanted to get married to. Everyone has the right to happiness and it isn't fair that gay people are being denied this right. I have nothing against interracial dating at all. I've dated outside of my race plenty of times and even though my parents seem to dislike it, I continue to do it because as I said before, everyone as the right to happiness.

Capital Punishment: "An eye for an eye." If someone does something bad, then they deserve it right back at them.

Premarital Sex: As long as people don't have babies out of wedlock, then it is ok. At first, I was completely against it because it was against my religion, but when I thought about it, I think sex isn't as much of a big deal as everyone makes it out to be.

Religion: Everyone should be entitled to freedom of worship. After all, the colonists came to America for religious freedom. Why should we deny anyone of practicing their religion?

Alcohol/Drugs: Laws prohibiting drugs and alcohol should be more strictly enforced, but I think the legal age for alcohol usage should be 18 since that is when kids become legal adults and then they can make decisions for theirselves.


How did you find the community?: Someone promoted it in one of my journal entries.

Are you a natural brunette?: Yes, of course!

Why should we accept you?: Because I am a non-ugly brunette and this is my first rating community, so I'm just trying it out.

Promote the community to another community or to another LJ user. Who did you promote it to?:

and my pictures for you lovely ladies and gentlemen:

Re: yes!!
You just worded your original statement poorly, and I misunderstood. I didn't mean to cause a whole big debate on this.

I do live in Iowa, but I'm from rural Arkansas. My mom has been married 4 times, and I had to deal with a lot of moving and poverty as a child. It wasn't fun, but I dealt with it and I think I turned out okay. I'm just glad my mom was older than a teenager when she had me (she was almost 26) or else I don't think she could have coped with it. There are several teenage parents who are great with their kids, but they are probably in the minority. For every good parent out there, teenager or otherwise, there are probably ten bad ones, sadly enough. =/

Re: yes!!
you're right, my phrasing was inappropriate but i had just come back from a nightclass was mentally drained. so i didnt mean to appear ignorant.

im sure you turned out better than ok!!! but it sucks to go through all of that moving around and stuff especially since children dont usually react to that too positively. and hey i dont have the perfect homelife...my parents are usually at each other's throats constantly anymore. but i am also 22 and my brother and sister are older so we shrug it off but if i were little seeing that, that might not be the case. everyone's home life is different but i feel (maybe its just me) that we form are views based on what we see. and growing up i didnt see much divorce or much poverty between my family or my friends and now that i go to school in west philly (which probably means nothing to you but think old school fresh prince of bell air theme song hehe) and i see alot of broken homes and teen moms or whatever, it breaks my heart to see children grow up like that.

i hope there are no hard feelings and i apologize for upsetting you if i did. i respect your opinions.

Re: yes!!
No hard feelings at all. I just misunderstood. I do agree with you in the sense that we are shaped by our environment, to an extent. Coming from the other side of the poverty line, it's kind of depressing to move into a richer area of the country and see all of these people who have so much, when all of your life you've had next to nothing. It can make one jaded.
