I am the soul once lost, now found...I will never abandon you as the world has you, for I care...I beg of you, do not let go...I love to love the ones who love me, and love even more the ones who don't...Release all of your worries and lay them upon my bed...Embrace me as your brother, your lover and God...And may our covenant be laid to rest...Go to sleep, my friend...And make yourself at home...
The Story of My Life: Appearances and IntroductionsGood evening! My name is Alex... at least on Goodreads. I hold a different name in real life.Now, for some information about me. I am African-American, born in good ol' Virginia. I have a mother, father and little brother> They're all awesome :) At least in a normal sense...I am 5'9" tall (Which is pretty tall compared to other people ._.) I have short black hair and dark brown eyes. I have a small mole on the right side of my chin. I also wear braces and glasses.I like wearing dark colors, because they blend in to the environment (I don't like standing out). I have a hoodie with blue and black stripes that I wear almost all of the time (It's like my favorite)I get acne often, which annoys the heck out of me. And I don't really like growing at the rate I am now. I'm losing my innocent looks, and they're being replaced by the powerful appeal of a man. But I don't feel like a true adult yet... Just a teenager searching for truth...
The Story of My Life: Personalities and Interests:Now, personality. I have quite the state of mind. I can categorize my personality in two factions: Amity and Candor. I am kind to everyone (mostly) and honest (but not always). I tend to be shy when around strangers. Around friends, I can really be a chatterbox, though. Politically, I am quite liberal. Religiously, I'm a pluralist. Otherwise, I'm not average, to say the least.As far as interests are concerned, I enjoy music a lot. It's like my life! I like pop, R&B, alternative, country, soft rock, smooth jazz and almost everything in between. I have an iffy relationship with rap. Beyond music, I love reading dystopian novels or fantasy series. I even write my own stories sometimes. I am huge on writing poetry. It's the one way I can describe my feelings in full context.I have a very optimistic and philosophical outlook on life. To me, Life is fair. The fact that you are alive right now makes you very fortunate. I tend not to take things for granted, and I care deeply for everyone (even my enemies). Some people don't understand me, and that's okay.I like it that way.
Journal Update #1
So, I believe that I should start working on this journal here. I'll still get more information about me later. First off... I LOVE THE FOSTERS! It's this really cool show about a family of lesbian parents and adopted children. Well, one of the guys, Brandon, is the actual son of one of the moms from her previous marriage to a guy. Then there are Hispanic twins, boy and girl (Jesus and Mariana) and two "temporary" foster children, a teen girl with a juvie record and troubled past named Thalia and an adorable little guy (He's like 12 :P) named Jude. Gosh, this show, man! 5 stars all the way! Whoo!
Journal Update #2
My brother's birthday was today :D We went to Buffalo Wild Wings, on his command. He got this crown called "Wing Beast", and now he;s treating me like a servant -_- *sigh* The things we do for our brothers.
