This is my personal journal, my little abode amidst the enigmatic tangles of the interwebs where, presented with the opportunity, I may easily amuse, delight, inspire, or bore you senselessly (among other things LOL) and I have no doubt that I should come with a humorous warning label of some sort! *G*

I'm happily married to my soul mate (Ken). We met on 8/9/99, married on 8/9/00, and our worlds revolve around our son (Nathan) who was born November 2003. We live in northern Kentucky (just south of Cincinnati, OH) where I am currently a full time student at Gateway Community and Technical College (KCTCS) while Ken works as a Tier 3 network support specialist at Time Warner Cable.

I love movies (that was probably a huge understatement!), love all kinds of music (currently I'm most addicted to listening to gothic rock and metal), and adore games (video, card, board, tabletop RPGs like D&D, etc.). I love reading (mostly fantasy novels like Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Ravenloft, and Harry Potter).

I'm very easy to get along with, open minded, outspoken, compassionate, trustworthy, sincere, stubborn, and I love my family and friends more than words can express. I avoid conflict and negativity whenever possible and I abhor drama. I try to see the bright side of everything (although it can be a challenge at times) and I've been known to see the good in others even when they cannot see it in themselves. I adore sarcasm, empathy, and a good sense of humor. I'm honest to a fault and despise liars.

My memory is not spectacular (never has been) and I have the post-it notes around my desk to prove it. I have some annoying habits such as excessively explaining things, over analyzing things (it's not unheard of for me to complicate things just by attempting to simplify them), being non-observant, asking for opinions more often than I should, rambling, pacing nonstop while talking on the phone, and can be a plethora of ditzyness at times, but no one is perfect. ;)

Friends Only.
Comment here to be added. :)

I post many things in my journal (some more often than others, of course) including, but not limited to: personal life, photos, movie reviews (or about them in general), video game reviews (or about them in general), poems, music lyrics, book reviews, memes, videos, polls, voice posts, and more. Needless to say, I mostly write about my personal life. My "Friending Policy" and an explanation for it are here. I do not distribute icons, wallpaper, mood themes, layouts, banners, or other graphics in my personal journal, I post them @ ainabarad_icons (my icon journal) instead.

Notice: My awesome Animated Ultimate Multi-Fandom Mood Theme was made by me, ainabarad, and is available here @ ainabarad_icons. (There is a still/non-animated version as well.) Also, my layout and all of my graphics were made by me, with the exception of the tiny Silk icons.
