Shake && Shout;; Meet Jordan!

Hello LJ world!

I'm going to try to get into regular(-ish) journaling from now on just because it seems like fun and I feel like I should be remembering the things that are happening in my life right about now.

First off, for those of you who don't know much about me, my name is Jordan (obvs ;)). I'm a senior in high school and I'm seventeen years old.  I have horrible vision and up until two months ago, I wore glasses, but now I have contacts (whooo whooot!) and it's fabulous.  I have two younger sisters, Jensen and Jaidan, and two animals, a black cat, Midnight, and a Australian Silky Terrier, Macey. I live in North Carolina, about twenty minutes outside of the city of Charlotte.  I have no real ~dreams or ~desires. I want to go to college. I want to work in an office in a big city and wear really cute clothes and heels (even though they hurt my feet). I want to be fluent in a language (which will probably end up being Spanish, but French is just so damn pretty!). I want to visit every continent in the world before I die (possibly excluding Antarctica; I can't really imagine doing anything down there besides freezing my ass off).  I want kids, but I don't really want to get married.  The whole institution of marriage doesn't seem desirable to me at all, but I really just want to have a daughter. Little girls dressed up in ribbons and bows and frilly dresses is the most precious thing.

I love soft rock/alternative/independent/folky music. Anything that sounds mildly depressing - I really love that stuff.  I claim to love the cold, but ever since the temperature has been dropping this year, I can't put enough sweatshirts and socks on.  I'm obsessive about almost everything that I like, anything from tv shows to books to movies to guys, although I've slowly become bored of my obsessions with fiction lately.  And while I'm kind of on the subject of guys, I've never had a boyfriend, but I like to think of myself as a dedicated stalker (lol ohmygah,kidding) but I've only really liked seven guys in my whole life, and all but two of them have only had four letters in their names. lol weirddd, I know. Guys will probably be a semi-major portion of my entries, jsyk.  My favorite color is purple. I'm not really sure why, but it's pretty.  I have a lime green phone and a green bookbag. I don't know why that is either. 

I don't really like people in general.  I do know why this is though:  I always try to find little nuances in a person that I can claim to dislike and complain about to my sister.  Said sister, Jensen, is eighteen months younger than me and happens to be my best friend.  This is probably because I can't stand people. I do have two best friends though, Jolyn and Jayme, who are twins.  We've all been best friends (on and off isssh, completely on in the past five years though) since kindergarten, but they really are the best friends I could have. I'm with them constantly except for when they're with their boyfriends (which is often, lately) or pissing me off.  But just because people piss me off doesn't mean I'm anti-social, no, I talk to people, I just don't like to hang out with anyone aside from J&J outside of school. But that's just because I like to be alone when I'm at home.

I have no idea what else to add in this, so whateverrs. Comment! Tell me the things we have in common or ask me more questions. I'm going to try to do a journal or something weekly, so this is just an introduction.   

&& I also know that my twin in everything but name, <lj user="sinfuldream">, is going to be starting her journal entry posting with me, rightt DA?

Maybe There's Hope

There's really nothing to this story. I've always loved this scene, but a few weeks ago on fanforum, Nicole posted this lovely gif:

And so I was immediately inspired. So this is dedicated to her for posting pretties all the time, and to Fatimah, because she's fabulous and she beta'd it.... and nagged me until it was done. So enjoy!

It's Tumbling Down Hard

Freddie and Effy from Skins are the couple that I am the most fucking broken-hearted about at the moment, so the complete unresolvedness of the ~finale lead me to write this. I still wish I could have seen how she reacted to finding out he was dead, but it probably would have been fucked up if it was on the show, so this kind of scenario will live on forever in my head.

Summary: What’s the point of love when it has the power to make you feel so wretched? In the end, is it worth it at all? All the pain and heartbreak, what does it really do?

Edit: I also have it on for those of you who are members there and like to keep stories together (like me).

Hello lj friends!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Tuesday I set because_i_hope's puppy on fire (-66 points). In February I farted in an elevator (-6 points). In August I pushed vivere in the mud (-17 points). In October won_won and I donated clothes to the needy (11 points). Last Thursday I pulled hova4life's hair (-5 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-83 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

:D Happy Holidays! I hope you all have a fabulous and safe Christmas. And that you get everything that you want.

Nobody breaks my heart.

So this is my first journal entry ever on here, and I have Gisele hova4life to thank for tagging me making me feel obligated to respond.

Today is my birthday and I'm finally 16! *woot* I don't get my license until October 30th, but it's still cool to not be the youngest (agewise) person that I know.  I got Adventureland, a picture collage, a new ihome, a saphire ring, silver sparkly heels, earings, and $50 dollars from my parents, and I'm having a party this weekend.  I think I might be getting a car when I actually get my license, but I'm not too too sure right now.

So now, onto the whateverthingIgottaggedfor. :)

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it".

1.  Cough medicine makes me sneeze/cough.  The smell is really nasty, and when I put it up to my mouth I always have a sneezing/coughing attack.  So it's like the opposite reaction.  The same thing happens when any kind of cleaning supplies are around me.

2.  I randomly get really locked onto a couple and I keep myself in my room all day and watch episode scenes and fan videos and read fan fictions and cry a lot.  Today is one of those days, and my choice couple is Freddie and Effy of Skins fame. 

3.  I hate the heat, and being hot, and sweating.  I'd rather be freezing my ass off in multiple layers of clothing than to be outside when it's hot.  The sun also give me a headache sometimes, so I basically hate it.  I like sunsets.

4.  I've never had a boyfriend and I don't want one anytime soon.  The guys at my school are super lame and I really don't see the need for one.  My friends piss me off when they say they're going to try to find me one though, idgaf.

5.  When I get done with school I want to become a screenwriter.  Book editing would be plan B, but I'm really set on screenwriting.

6.  I played softball for six years of my life, and for the last three years I played I was a pitcher for a tournament team.  I think I was really good, but I got fed up one day, so I just quit.  Now I play golf because there's no sprinting involved ;) And I'm pretty good at it too.

7.  I use Suave kid's shampoo and scrunch my hair 99.9% of the time.  My hair is extremely poufy and crazy, but I love it most the time, I just wish I could rock a super high springy pony tail.

I tag: because_i_hope, justrealize1, skky95, nicoleontop, star_reacher, zee_covergirl, and alexakylee.

Enjooy! I'm going out for my birthday dinner now! <3
