Hello! Welcome to my corner of the Internet. I'm 28, I have a B.A. in English from UMBC, and I still live with my parents. I'm single, and I find it likely that I'll stay that way...but that's probably the depression talking. This chemical imbalance created a series of depressive episodes in which I refused, stubbornly, to seek help. I have since realized my error and have taken steps to correct it. Thus, while I admit the above description of me rings as unflattering, I know things will get better as long as I stay as positive as I can and rely on my family and friends for laughter and support when I can't. As for romance, I have no shot. None whatsoever. My only choices in that regard are acceptance of the single life or a lifetime of bitterness, and I hope I have the strength of character to choose the former.

That's the stuff on which I'm working. Now for the good stuff: I'm pretty freaking smart, dude. I can write brilliantly, even if I wax a tad verbose at times. I enjoy, and excel at, making people laugh. I sing rather well, and need to look into voice training. I work at a gas station and run the register like no one else, though I'll need to find a higher-paying job soon. I make a good conversationalist, and will lend an ear at any time if my friends need someone to listen to them (provided they do the same for me; one-way channels wear me down). I have many other good qualities, but they escape me at the moment; I'm working on my ability to remember positive things about myself. A decade of depression can atrophy that ability quite efficiently.

If, in your opinion, my good side outweighs my bad, let's be friends. Only posts containing personal or sad things will be locked from 3/10/11 onward, so drop me a line in one of my public posts and I will friend you. After that, I will keep those who show they care and drop those who won't; nothing personal, but I refuse to surround myself with people who will make me feel used and thus affect my mood negatively.

Okay, I'm done pontificating. Hope you're having a good day today.
