Ugh. First of all HELLO NEW FRIENDS! I will do a proper "this-is-me" post, but this will not be it. I have some political angst to get rid of before I can sleep properly.

My ancestors were here in 1620, and we haven't moved much. I really do like it here. So, I AM USUALLY SO PROUD TO BE FROM THIS STATE (MA). TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY.  It is such a strange feeling to have, as if I don't know the place I live at all. Weird.

If you're not from the USA, this might make no sense, and if you are, well...I AM SORRY (I'll show you my "I voted" sticker?). (This is where I say, don't blame me, I voted for Kronos?)

Politics make me want to go to grad school abroad, sometimes.

Well, now that I got my political irritation out, I will say "Hello" to the lovely new people from the Merlin Friending Meme.

My name is Alissa, and I currently live in Cambridge, MA. I am 26 and work part-time at a pizza place while I look for full time work (victim of the economic downturn, but that's okay) and ponder a return to school. I have my B.A. in Geology but I'd be going back for Environmental Science.

Anyway, I generally use this journal for fandom-related things, like my recent forays into writing fic. I still find the fact that I am actually writing anything rather funny asI had long labeled myself Not A Writer. Having been around various fandoms, on and off, for 10+ years mostly as a lurker, my level of participation in Merlin related stuff still surprises me (in a good way). The first fic I ever read was in 1999, just after Star Wars: The Phantom Menace came out, so that's where I started out.

Anyway, I also love to read, am a pretty avid sea kayaker (out of season right now, though) and really enjoy  just walking around the city. I'm not a photographer in the sense that I've had training, but I also like to take pictures while doing one of several outdoor sports (hiking, paddling, etc) or of interesting things I find around my hometown.

So I hope that is enough of an intro. It's hard to pin oneself down in a post, and I am out of practice! I did have an LJ that I kept for years, so maybe I just need to get back into the swing of things.

Oh, and I'm DarthRocky over at Twitter if you're into that kind of thing.
