The New Revised Short Version

Currently inactive on Blurty; actively posting as phyrry at LiveJournal.

The [Old] Short Version

I live. I exist. (Maybe.)

This journal exists as a record of who I am. I write to myself for the future, to remember who I am now, where I came from, and where I thought I was going.

Whoever you might be, you are welcome to read along.

The [Old] Long Version

I yam what I yam. Student, daughter, opinionated and a loner. I'm in my fourth year out of six as an undergraduate at a growing state university in the northwestern US, majoring in electrical engineering and physics and minoring in materials science and applied mathematics. I am also the queen of the run-on sentence, but if C. Iulius Caesar could get away with it, I figure I've got a pretty good chance too.

I push away the people I care for most. I have anger and angst and apathy problems, but I'm working on them. If I believe in anything it is the ultimate unknowableness of how the universe actually works, and a while back I found this thing called 'chaos magic' that fits my view of life to a tee. It was rather odd, actually, to run across Spare and Carroll just at that point in my life, as I had just shortly before come into an acceptance that I defied categorization of religion, that I was faithless, and that trying further at this point would be, well, pointless. Now I read and study all that I can, but I would give anything to have wonder and energy and caring again. Anything, it seems, but the comfort that apathy brings, the rotten sort of comfort that only a fear of failure can breed. But I am learning nevertheless. It will be slow, it might be miserable, but I grow. I lurk on urbanpagan, faerie_tales, and dreamwork, but so far I have been disappointed by the lack of involvement on the first two and the quality of involvement on the third.

There are other facets to me -- there are other facets to everyone. I have grown distant from my family since the death of my father, but have recently been patching that up.

Hobbies-wise, I am an active Neopian thanks to Amber, a sophmore at my university from my home town who has converted most of our shared social group to Neopets. In turn, I spread the wealth by luring in Judy and my significant other, Ninjirou, and by now it has become our secondary meeting point. I also converse with friends by AIM, where I go by phyrry.

Lifestyle issues also exist. I haven't eaten red meat for six years. I generally cook vegetarian or vegan, especially since a friend of mine who gives me anime is vegan and I generally cook for our group's anime nights. Thus far, I've been somewhat active on veggies but have not found a lot of good food tips. veganrecipes looks interesting, but I haven't had enough time to make up my mind as to how I feel about it yet. :) While I eat to live, I enjoy eating immensely, especially since I fast often.

As I write this, I am in the process of moving out of the dormitory I have spent the last four years in, which is undergoing construction at the moment, and into a three-bedroom apartment with the aforementioned Judy. How this newest lifestyle change will affect me is unclear, but I look forward to something different, which life with Judy certainly will be.

Suggestions are always welcome, as long as they are phrased politely and spelled correctly.
