See the Amanda, Feel the Shine!

Welcome to my mind. If you lived here, you'd be home by now.

[Try as I might, this bio will be outdated about 99% of the time. This current bio is from 2011. The interests were last updated in 2014. Despite that, I'm still around and still posting, albeit behind the almighty screen of friends-only-ness that encompasses ALL. Or, almost all. But at least the bio will give you a general idea.]

I've come a long way since minuetcat was created in 2003. I recovered from anorexia. I went through the arduous task of rediscovering myself. I began work on my Biology degree. Beautiful people came into my life, and the ones I'd had stuck by me. I got a job. I gained confidence. I went onward.
In short: I learned who I am and who I wish to be. I learned how to love the life I have and the person I am.

I've moved from California to New Jersey to live with my beautiful boyfriend (now-husband) and to see the world. College is over and I've been thrust out into the workforce. Life will always be an adventure and I'm eager to experience every bit of it.

What else can I say? I'm a sci-fi/fantasy nerd with a love of Biology, gourmet cooking, martial arts, hiking, camping, road trips, fixing cars. I love all sorts of music, especially metal. I'm madly in love with the hottest, nerdiest, sweetest guy ever...he never stops surprising me with his amazingness. We got married in June 2010. Yay!!

This journal has been (and hopefully always will be) the outlet my thoughts use to break free. I've tried to make it my life. My friends on here are not just names on a screen...they're people I've come to love and who I trust at my best and worst moments.

If you wish to know me better, read on! Whatever's here is as close to my mind as it can get.
