Grrrlesque

This entry is for those that want to find out a little more about me and what I write about before friending me. You can always look on my userinfo page, read the "BIO" section on my userinfo page to find out about this journal and what I write about in this journal, and read the whole userinfo page for more information about me. My userinfo page doesn't tell everything about me, but if you want to know *everything* about me, You will have to add me as a friend. Also, If you want to know ALL of my interests, You'll have to add me to your friends list. I have LOTS of interests, in fact, I have more than the 150 interests listed on my userinfo page...I wish I could list more than 150. You can look at the communities I'm a member of on my userinfo page to find out more of my interests. You can also check out my list of links on the right side of this journal to see some more of my interests. For more information on this journal, please read the "Friends Only" entry too. This entry and the "Friends Only" entry are important entries and SHOULD BE READ. Anyhow, WELCOME TO MY WORLD!

ABOUT THE GIRL:
NAME: Greta
AGE: 26
LOCATION: Tennessee, USA
BIRTHDAY: March 4, 1983
SIGN: Pisces
OCCUPATION: CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) at a nursing home. I'll be there 7 years in September 2009.
SIBLINGS: 0 None, I'm an only child.
EMAIL: grrrlsvomitcandyNOSPAM@hotmail.com (Just remove the spam trap, which are the words NOSPAM and you've got the email address.)
LIVEJOURNALS I HAVE HAD THROUGHOUT THE YEARS: These are listed in order from my first to my last livejournal usernames: i_am_ruined, ___nazicar, _girlparts_, dollspit, and now grrrlesque.
I would like to forget about all of them, as I am starting new with this journal.

THE REASON BEHIND THE USERNAME:
grrrlesque is a username I thought of through an email I sent to people about making a riot grrrl e-zine, which is no longer around and was called "Grrrlvox". I was asking for suggestions for some names we could call the zine. "grrrlesque" was a zine name choice, so I thought I'd choose it as a username because I like the sound and spelling of it. I was going to use "girlesque", but it was already taken. I had my mind set on using one of these names: "boygrinder", "girlsvomitcandy", "girlbruise", "grrrlsvomitcandy", or "doll_steak". My 2nd choice was "grrrl_riot", However, I have that username on various websites throughout the internet, so I thought it'd be too obvious for a username, so I chose grrrlesque. I also have "grrrlriot" as a username on various websites on the internet too. Also, the idea of girlesque rhymeing with burlesque...I liked the sound of it.

INTRODUCTION TO THIS JOURNAL:
This journal is FRIENDS ONLY. I will have a few public entries, but most of my entries will be friends only. I use lj-cuts on most of my entries because most of my entries are long and about different stuff. Sometimes, I use more than 1 lj-cut in some of my entries due to the fact that the entry contains lots of different topics, This is why this entry has more than 1 lj-cut.

FROM MY USERINFO PAGE'S "USER INFO/BIO" SECTION AND FROM MY "FRIENDS ONLY" ENTRY: I PLAN ON BEING ACTIVE ON THIS JOURNAL, I PLAN ON WRITING IN THIS JOURNAL DAILY, EVERY OTHER DAY, OR WEEKLY. I PLAN ON KEEPING THIS JOURNAL INSTEAD OF LETTING IT DIE LIKE MY OTHER LIVEJOURNALS DID. I DO NOT PLAN ON CHANGING JOURNALS...EVER AGAIN. 80% OF MY ENTRIES WILL BE FRIENDS ONLY. THIS JOURNAL IS FRIENDS ONLY, BUT IT DOES HAVE SOME PUBLIC ENTRIES AS WELL. TO READ THE FRIENDS ONLY POSTS, YOU MUST COMMENT ON THE FRIENDS ONLY ENTRY AND ADD ME FIRST BEFORE I ADD YOU. IF YOU ADD ME WITHOUT COMMENTING OR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ME ADDED, I WILL NOT ADD YOU. ADD ME FIRST AND I WILL MOST LIKELY ADD YOU BACK, BUT DO ADD ME FIRST. WHEN YOU ADD ME, I ASK THAT YOU BE OPEN-MINDED. THERE MIGHT BE SOME THINGS YOU DO NOT WANT TO READ IN MY JOURNAL, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. THE ENTRIES IN THIS JOURNAL WILL BE ABOUT: ME, MY INTERESTS/THINGS I'M INTERESTED IN (I HAVE MORE THAN 150 INTERESTS, BUT I COULD ONLY LIST 150 INTERESTS.), THE INTERNET, ASTROLOGY, MUSIC, FEMINISM, RIOT GRRRL, LISTS (I LIKE TO MAKE LISTS.), AND ANYTHING ELSE I WANT TO WRITE ABOUT. I DO NOT POST SURVEYS, QUIZZES, LYRICS, AND MEMES EXCEPT ON A VERY RARE OCCASION, LIKE ONCE A YEAR. I WILL TRY TO MAKE THIS JOURNAL INTERESTING FOR YOU TO READ. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME, BEFORE YOU ADD ME, READ THE GRRRLESQUE ENTRY OR THE FRIENDS ONLY ENTRY. I WILL READ JOURNALS, BUT ON A RARE OCCASION. IF I READ YOUR JOURNAL, I WILL LEAVE YOU A COMMENT. IF YOU COMMENT IN MY JOURNAL OTHER THAN ON THE FRIENDS ONLY ENTRY, I WILL MOST LIKELY COMMENT IN YOURS IMMEDIATELY. I AM ALWAYS OPEN TO ENTRY IDEAS.

My first livejournal ever was i_am_ruined, but I let it die. I outgrown that journal and hated the username. I never deleted it for the fact that it was my FIRST livejournal. I never did get a livejournal when I was in school. I had actual journals (diaries) that I wrote in back then. Since I have gotten out of school, I have written in livejournals and other journals. I used to have like 12 journals on different journal sites, but I let them die. Obviously, 12 journals were too many for me to handle. Then, I created ___nazicar, which I named because it was a lyric in 2 songs. (Scarling-The Last Day I Was Happy and Hole-Babydoll) I don't regret having any of my old journals, except for the i_am_ruined journal. Around the time ___nazicar was around, I made a 2nd journal just for the sake of it, _girlparts_. I thought of the song by Hole called Dollparts, so I thought of "girlparts". After making both journals, I decided to stop using them and to create dollspit. I thought of the name "dollspit" because an old riot grrrl website was called "Dollspit" and I used to enjoy visiting it. Then, I decided to quit using it too and since I'm getting older all the time, I thought grrrlesque could be a journal I use for a very long time.
I no longer use my greatestjournals. If you are on greatestjournal, I suggest you join or move over here to LiveJournal. You can join livejournal without posting in your new livejournal, You can use it just to read my entries. You can post in your new livejournal as well, It's up to you.
My FRIENDS ONLY ENTRY and this entry will ALWAYS appear at the TOP of my main journal page. The friends only entry will be the first entry everyone sees that visits my journal and this entry will be the second entry everyone sees when visiting my journal. That is why I put a fake year on both entries, to make them appear at the top of the page. This way everyone can find the friends only entry and will see it first thing when they come to my journal. The second entry everyone will see when coming to this journal will be this entry.

I noticed that my friends only banner no longer works, so I made myself one, see my "Friends Only" entry.

Just posted this on what seems to be a dead old journal; so copypasta:
o.0 I found you while doing a search of my old band name; did i used to know you?

Just curious!

Hello, I don't think I know you. I went to your user profile and I run a SYL LJ community: _drizzlehell that you might've been in. Other than that, I don't think we know each other. I don't remember Yevin or Oatmeal Jocktrap. Sorry.
