My name is Shane. I'm almost 24 and severely regret the time I wasted and the opportunities I messed up. I was a hell child, listened to too much punk rock, and did too many drugs. It took me too long to get my shit together, took me too long to get sober, and now that I am, all I have is my sobriety and my girlfriend. I need to go back to university but don't know if I will ever get another chance. I'm straight broke, have legal problems, and yeah. It sucks because the only real way I know to make monehy is selling weed and I got out of all that. Sooo... I wish I could get paid writing, but you know how it is.
My interests include anime, screamo music, capitalism/socialism contemplation, and junk like that. I write an indie webcomic
in my spare time (my girlfriend draws it), but we're really just getting started with it.
I've been on LiveJournal for over 8 years. If you wanted, you could go back to read about what a drug addict I was and how punk rock I was (yeah, too old for that now)... see how far I've come. I could even give you the PDF of my old LJ account and you could read about the first time I ever got started... you know, if you wanted to. It's nearing two thousand pages total, and it doesn't seem like it's going to stop. If you want a LJ friend who is here to stay, you can probably place some stock here.
My girlfriend has panic disorder and OCD -- unmedicated. We live in America without healh insurance, though she is not from the country. We are very much in love and intend to marry.
I'm a liberal, but not a hippie.
I told the girlfriend to post a picture of me on her photobucket for this... This is the one she picked:
So uhh... add me and we'll see how well we get along.
