Once upon a time there was a girl named Jessica who was sometimes called Candywife and sometimes called Giggles. This is her fairytale.
I recently moved into an aparment with my beautiful fiancee. I’m 22 (even though I look 15 and act 5) and I’m in college majoring in English, which makes my two jobs at a bookstore and a library pretty convenient for me. As much as I’d love to, I realize that supporting myself solely through writing is a sadly unrealistic goal (this is one of my rare pessimistic moments), so hopefully I will become one of those highly underpaid people who stand in front of a group of kids and talk all day …
I’m a lesbian. Just in case you missed the Support Love banner below. *points down* As such, I hate homophobia. So yeah, if me rambling about how much I love my fiancee or making mentions of gay sex is going to weird you out, it might be better to click the X on the upper right hand corner of your screen now. Still here? Cool. So. I love my fiancee. We’ve been together for over a year now … ever since that drunken night on September 6, 2008 when we made out on a pool table for two hours at a party. I love her more than anyone and sometimes it feels like “The Pool Table Party” has never ended. We got engaged on 3/27/10 and will be getting married sometime in the next 2 years. Yay. :)
I’m really socially awkward in person. I was one of those shy kids in school who the teachers would talk about and say, “She’ll grow out of her shyness!” Except I never did. So I don’t have a whole lot of friends, which is fine because I spend most of my time with my girlfriend anyway, and the friends I do have know I’m insane and they accept that. In fact, my best friend is just as crazy as I am. We are REAL best friends. We have the type of friendship where we can live 532.6 miles apart and go a year and a half without seeing each other, and then when we finally do see each other everything is the same and it’s like nothing has changed at all.
When people really get to know me, I think I’m a fun person to be around. I like to act silly and dance around in strange costumes and make stupid youtube videos. I enjoy running in the rain and splashing in puddles. I still go trick-or-treating on Halloween and firmly believe that anyone who thinks that's wrong is just jealous because they want to trick-or-treat as well but are too embarrassed to do it. I have no shame and could really care less what other people think about me. I’m basically always smiling and I laugh way too much. That’s not to say I am happy all the time … but I do like to have fun and make the most out of life and try to take the time to appreciate all the little things.
I always say I was born in the wrong decade because both of my favorite singers had their musical peaks in the 80s. I’ve been a fan of Weird Al Yankovic and Michael Jackson since I was a little girl, and even had the honor of meeting Weird Al on May 30, 2007. The day Michael Jackson died was one of the worst days of my life, but he will always live in my heart. Long Live the King. ♥ Other than Al and MJ, my taste in music is extremely eclectic and I basically listen to a little bit of everything from 90s alternative to techno to rock.
One day I want to publish a novel (or two, or ten …), get married, have 2.5 children, and see the world. It would be cool to try that whole teaching thing too. Maybe in an urban school through Teach For America. I’d also like to get a couple tattoos, become a DDR master, go on a paleontology dig, become a vegetarian (for longer than 4 months this time), volunteer with the Peace Corps, and knit a big comfy blanket.
This is my own personal journal, and I talk about whatever I want. I say “fuck.” I bitch a lot. I like sex. I’m for gay rights and animal rights, consider myself a feminist, and I think marijuana should be legalized. I'm a recovering "everything you do in life will doom you to hell" Christian and I no longer refer to myself as religious, but spiritual. I experiment with many different spiritualities and although I don’t follow many Christian beliefs anymore, I still believe in Jesus. I've also been doing a decent amount of research on different earth-based religions laetly and have found that I am very interestted in Goddess spirituality. I like hearing other people’s opinions because diversity is what makes the world go round. But don’t try to change my beliefs or tell me that mine are wrong, because I’ll most likely just laugh at you. :)
