My name is Amanda, I'm 17 years old, and I live in Kansas, United States. Since I was 4, I've been playing the piano. I'm in love with music. Music has played a huge portion in my life. It continues to contruct me into who I am today. I can't imagine my life without it. Music is a gift, a worldwide language, and I'm glad many people use that to communicate their feelings of what is in their hearts.
I am also a huge movie fanatic, although... most livejournal users share this same passion. I love how many people come together, and use their knowledge to create a production such as a movie. It's extraordinary to me. A group of people work together to create one final product. With following production of movies, I tend to care for the actors as well :) I'm sure most of you can agree with that. Some of my favorite actors consist of Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Mark Wahlberg, Leonardo Dicaprio... that generation of actors. As they are getting older, hopefully younger actors can take the reigns and create another great generation of excellent actors :)
I'm not much of a reader, but I'm hooked on the Twilight Series. Despite what you've heard and possibly witnessed about this phenomenon, there are sane fans out there, and I would hope to think I am sane. I don't have much respect for the author, but I do applaud her for applying life lessons into her story, and real characters, incorporating them with fantasy. Vampires, living on animal blood, and using their special abilities, their amplified strengths to help those who need help? Using what they have, despite what their kind is known for and to be better? I love a good story. On the outside, the Twilight Series is pretty simple. But under the surface, it can be complex and very unique. I guess it just depends on how you perceive it.
My favorite tv shows consist of: Friends, Glee, Prisonbreak, Vampire Diaries, and Bones. Although I do like watching things such as: Smallville, Supernatural, Angel, Buffy, I'm not as dedicated to them as the ones listed before. :)
And lastly, I would like to tell about who I am as a person. Most people tell me I'm pretty mature for my age, and I would hope to think that is true. I'm not too good at talking about myself, but I would love the chance to show you. So, here is my journal. I use it to vent, to share what's on my mind, and to make new friends :) Having friends from different locations, yet sharing the same interests? it's beautiful <3
