My name is Natalie. :D
Here's everything you need to know about me:
a. I'm 19 years old (I'm turning 20 in December)
b. I come from a huuuuuge family. I have a mom, dad, step-mom, two step-brothers, two half-sisters, and one half-brother. I'd lay down my life for any one of them in a second. We have a bajillion pets, and are nothing short of dysfunctional. But it's all ♥.
c. I am in my junior year at Towson University in Towson, Maryland. I started out as an English major with a concentration in creative writing, then added a German minor, then took it off, then added a minor in Electronic Media & Film. I just switched my major to Secondary Education w/Certification in English (i.e. teaching high schoolers English), with Electronic Media & Film as a minor, and Creative Writing as a minor. 'Course, this is not definite, because I have to actually apply and be approved for the Sec. Ed. program. If I do get accepted, I'll have to be at school for an extra year.
d. I am a Christian. This should really top the list, but not a lot of people care about that kind of thing anymore, which I find sad. I'm a part of Agape, a Christian fellowship on my campus, and am discovering God's love more and more every day. Occasionally I will post about my experiences, but not very often, because it's too personal for me and because I know that it offends people/they won't get it. But if anyone ever wants to talk with me about anything, I'm open!
e. I hate politics. I don't know why, I always have. I won't talk about them.
f. I love movies. To death.
g. I love fandoms, and shipping.
h. I run a few comms, write fic, make vids, and post graphics. Links below.
My entries are personal a lot of the time, so unless I know you well in real life or well through the fandom, I don't see why you need to view my entries! However, there will be some entries that I'll make public.
If you'd like to be a friend of mine, comment please! Tell me who you are and why you think we'd be good friends. You can look at my interests page to see the things I like. If you friend me without commenting, I won't friend you back so you won't be able to read my entries anyway, unless they're public.
That being said, I really don't have any qualifications as to who gets to be my friend & who doesn't. As long as we have some things in common, you're good to go. Just a note, though - I really can't stand it when people type lIkE tHiS andthey tHink its s0 gr8.
If you'd like to see more, or friend me, go to this post. ♥
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours
- Who Am I? by Casting Crowns
"This union [with God] is not a simple expression of the heart, like saying, "Lord, I love You with all my heart," or other similar words. Rather, is is an inexpressible state of the soul - gentle, peaceful, respectful, humble, loving, and very simply - that urges the person to love God, to adore Him, and to embrace Him with both tenderness and joy."
- The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence
I have a lot of fandoms and a lot of ships. :) Some I tend to talk about more than others. If you don't agree with a ship of mine, please don't bash me in my journal. Just don't add me. ;)

simply_strange / Natalie is TEH P/S FANFIC WRITER. She's amazingly brilliant with writing. Bow down to her! xD Haha, also, I love her entries, they are always fun and interesting to read. I mean, the girl actually has the right mix of real-life and fandom. That's always awesome. ♥ Not to mention, she has great taste in ships.
couperose / Ah, my shippy buddy! ♥ Nat is the coolest person EVAH, seriously, you are definitely missing out if she's not on your f-list. XD She's also fabulous at commenting & very fun to talk to. Go friend her now!!
xlafemmenikitax / Natalie was one of the first fandom friends I made when I first came online, and I couldn't be any happier at that. She's so warm, big hearted, and funny. She's so mature for her age, it's hard to believe we're the same age! You all should bow down and friend her, because you'll be gaining a lot more than a friend if you do ♥
windfallen / I haven't been LJ friends with Natalie as long as some other people I have on my f-list, but for the amount of time that I have had her as an LJ friend, she has been a great one. As far as I can tell she's a great person. Furthermore, she has excellent grammar and punctuation, which of course is enough to make almost any person super. Her Narnia fanfics are superb, particularly her Peter/Susan ones.
whatever_we_are / Nat. My darling Nat. Where would I be without her? She's my crazy Ray/Neela shipping buddy and I love her to bits. We know we're rabid fangirls and we pretty much don't care. She also writes the most beautiful fic and has one of the biggest hearts on LJ. Laugh with her and love her ♥
aardy / I played mini-golf with Natalie when she was 4, and she's only gotten better since then.
labrindille / Natalie is, like, the best fake half-sister ever! ♥
crypticdreams / Natalie. Is. Amazing.
kickasselfgirl / Natalie is the best friend I could ever ask for. She is always there for me may it be at school or on livejournal. She listens to me bitch when I need to, she comforts me when I'm upset, she helps me out and calms me down when the legless creatures attack, and most of all she loves who I am no matter what. There are few, if not any, times when she judges me and tells me that I shouldn't do something because it's bad for me. She understands I am my own person and she loves me because I am. She does this for everyone. Natalie is one of a kind and I love her because of who she is and I would never change a thing about her, except maybe her height ;) and the fact that she's going to a different college. I am going to miss her when we are off at college, but I know that we will still wreak havoc together, somehow. I love you Nadme!
