This is my personal journal, where you’ll find my rantings, obsessions, and randomness. I’m a nice person and I’d like to think somewhat interesting. I love making new friends, so feel free to drop a comment and add me and I’ll most likely add you back.
Doing absolutely nothing. Spending obscene amounts of time on my computer. Reading the day away. Playing around on iTunes and listening to all the music I have. Popping in a favorite movie on dvd, setting the dvd player on repeat, and watching the same movie until I can quote it backward. Sleeping. Indulging in retail therapy, even when I shouldn't. Watching movies and tv shows I own when they air on tv. Sharing my knowledge of trivial information to whoever will listen. Talking aloud to myself and getting extremely into character when I write.
If you are looking for any graphics I may have made or any photos I may have uploaded (ie: Disney Princess, Disneyland, multi-fandom), please check out my journal for that: celtic_mermaid

Fandom Video of the Moment:
Victorian Romance Emma
Because this show is amazingly awesome.
I think disappointment must be good for me, I get so much of it; and the constant thumping Fate gives me may be a mellowing process; so I shall be a ripe and sweet old pippin before I die. -Louisa May Alcott, April 1861
I’m not happy, but I’m not unhappy about it. -Posner, The History Boys
Everyone has a moment in history that belongs particularly to him. -Gene, A Separate Peace, John Knowles
Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. -Walt Disney
Your success and happiness live in you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer trappings. The great, enduring realities are love of service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps out purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. -Helen Keller
I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle-something heroic or wonderful, that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead. I don’t know what, but I’m on the watch for it, and mean to astonish you all, someday. -Josephine March, Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
Father asks to…remember that the evil which is now in the world will become yet more powerful, and that it is not evil which conquers evil, but only love… -Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaievna Romanova
