You know you want to add me :)

Hello, all! After going through some major crises in my life and still struggling to find a way to successfully get the course I wish for my life to go in, working, I am looking to add new people to my friends-list. In many ways, my journal is a combination of stress-clearing, meme-posting, soul-searching, writing of erotic prose, other writing, and a place to just get things off of my chest.  Some of you may have known me under a different name - that of


</a></b></a>dark_tsquall.  Others of you may know me by the pseudonym I have used for years in writing fanfiction, TacomaSquall.

My journal is an outlet for many of the things that I cannot show in my real life, where I am currently forced to be the rock of stability in my marriage. As such, there is angst a-plenty within its entries. More than anything else - what I desire is support as I continue through the most difficult stretch of my life.

Some basic facts about me:

I'm a 37-year-old male.
I'm married, with a four-year-old son and another who is one year old.
Sadly, my marriage is (and has been for a long time) in a difficult place.
I'm a long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest who was transplanted to the Northern Great Plains in 2004, and has yet to fully recover from the uprooting.
I'm at a major crossroads in my life, and am unsure where my path will lead in the future.
I'm a passionate fan of (in no particular order) music (with a wide and eclectic preference), writing (I have dabbled for more than 25 years), science and fantastic fiction, reality TV, big-budget cinema, romanticism, professional wrestling, and comic books.

I do want to caution you that some of the posts in this journal are of a very adult nature, and detail facts of the very difficult place I find myself in. I am not perfect, and my marital difficulties have been extreme – and many of my difficulties have their seeds in things that I have done, not anyone else.  To allow people who wish to see some faets of my life and journal but not all the freedom to do so, I do use filters to control which people see which posts.  The majority of posts of a personal nature are filtered or friends-only.

I own the choices I have made and their consequences, and I am struggling with the inequities of a marriage with someone who wants to go down a different path than I, in life.

If this sounds interesting - come on by and give my journal a look!  Hopefully, you'll stay for awhile!

I am pretty crazy.  I am the one your mother would not let you play with when you were a kid, though she could never tell you exactly why.  I don't like people, or gatherings, but I like LJ because I like reading about people. Go figure.
 
I am opinionated and honest.  Very honest.  I don't spare my feelings, I don't spare others.  I am pretty liberal politically, most of the time anyway, and I don't really discuss politics, but it does come up.  We may not get along if you're prolife or anti-gay marriage.  I have one friend on my list who is prolife, maybe two, but I try to ignore it when they do their thing.  
 
It's not so much that I don't respect the opinions of others, but when those opinions try to control my body or who I get to love, I have issues.  Feel me?
 
I am here basically to read, though I do post.  I comment, and I ask that you do also.  If you don't comment, chances are I will remove you.  I will also remove you if I don't comment to you.  I really like the two way thing.  Most people have benn on my journal for years.  I am not into numbers, I am into quality.  If there's no connection, there's no hard feelings.
 
Add me and I will add you back.

You probably won't like me and here is why:

- I'm an Atheist.  Organized religion pisses me off and I often mention it in my journal.  Please don't add me if you're religious... 
- I'm a Democrat... Or rather, I'm NOT a Republican.  I write a lot about my hatred of the right.  Please don't add me if you're a Republican.
- I have a few chronic medical conditions that I sometimes write about in my journal.  Please don't add me if you dislike hearing about medical problems.  (I don't write all that much about it though.)
- I am somewhat obsessive about my favorite bands, The Cure, The Smiths and Morrissey, and I tend to write about them in my journal.  I do have a Morrissey filter for entries that are over the top Mozzish, but it still creeps into my daily entries.  Please don't add me if you can't tolerate mention of those bands.
- I'm 35 and married with a child.  I tend to write about these things.
- I am a tad crabby.  While I think that I'm someone with a generally positive attitude, I do tend to rant and I do tend to openly dislike a lot of things.  I'm the kind of person who is searching for the ideal and I have trouble accepting the half-assed product that is generally accepted as the standard...  And that's regarding most everything.
- Surveys and memes relax me.
- I'm fat.  If you think that fat people are all lazy over-eaters who really need to put down the bag of cookies and get on a treadmill, then PLEASE don't add me.  I spent my first 27 years dieting and hating myself and I'm quite done with that now.

There are a few reasons that you might like me:

- I'm fun.  Even when I'm bitching about things I tend to do it in a fun way.
- I'm a proud lefty.  If you're one too, join me.
- I never really grew up in my head.  I won't be writing about things like mortgages, taxes, etc.
- I'm a mom.  My daughter is everything to me.  She's somewhat gifted and tends to say enchanting things.  I write about her sometimes.
- I'm in love.  I've been married for almost 12 years and we're still crazy about each other.  I write about it sometimes.
- I love animals and own many of them.
- I am accepting of most alternative lifestyles, though I'll never understand polyamory... but I do accept that others do!  I'm pro-gay and even find that most of my friends tend to be gay... even though I'm not.  I've yet to figure out why we get along so well.
- I'm a lapsed artist.  I'm an illustrator, mostly... but I don't do it much anymore.  Inspire me?

Some things I like:
Tea
Jack White
Photography
Antiques
Silver
Antique cookbooks
The night
Venture Bros.
The Daily Show
Stephen Colbert
Conan O'Brien
