I have noticed a handful of people that have friended me without me knowing who they are. So if I haven't managed to friend you back yet, can you please leave me a comment saying who you are / why you friended me and I'll most probably friend you back.
I'm Ashleigh. That's me in my icon and on the last post I made. I have no issues posting pictures of myself online, if that wasn't obvious enough. I'm a 21-year old university student majoring in Fine Art with a focus in photography. I have an 11-year old sun conure whom I love dearly and at times wish to strangle to death (but not really) and can often be referred to as the devil bird. You can see him here.
I have a love-hate relationship with school and manage to spend more time on the computer than I do on my school work. I am a serious procrastinator when it comes to things I really should be doing but am pretty on top of things that I volunteer for or just do for fun. It doesn't make any sense to me either. *knows not what priorities are*
I post about my real life a lot. If that's something that you're not interested in, then you may want to just unfriend me now. Heh. My journal's intent was to be like a portfolio, but that all went to hell in the end. I do post fandom stuff but I try to keep it to a minimum
As a warning, when I do make epic photo posts I try to say how many pictures are behind a cut. I try not to post more than ~40 pictures in one single post, but sometimes it happens. My default image size is usually 650x433 but I will at times post pictures 900x600 at the largest. I can't help but like HQ but the bigger images will usually only be one or two max in the same post.
My main fandoms are Harry Potter, Super Junior, and the sub-group SJM. (I have severe bias towards Kyuhyun and will show it on occasion.) I'm interested in DBSK, Epik High, Big Bang, etc but I honestly don't have time to keep up with all of these bands. I want to check out SS501 but haven't gotten the chance. (That's what summer's for!) If you have any other band recommendations, I will happily look into them. :)
It's also funny when I think about it that my choice of music mostly consists of hard rock & metal compared to what I listen to in the Asian music department which is mostly pop and hip-hop styled music. The type of music that I generally don't listen to from American artists, though I admit to liking a lot more genres than just rock when it comes to music (I just really don't like rap and country for the most part).
Like I said, I post about my real life a lot. On that note, I live with my mom after losing my dad this past October. I sometimes make cryptic emo posts or not so cryptic emo posts because I don't always know how to deal with my emotions. You can skip those as you like. I post about serious and non-serious real life issues slash going-ons as well as pictures of family members on occasion. The cast for this journal is myself, mom (Teresa), my mom's fiance (Robert or Bedeck), my 14 yo brother (Christian), my three best friends - heyu1021 (John) [+ John's boyfriend (Ben)], boberto518 (Robert), clay1124 (Clayton) - my older sister (Stacy) + her fiance (Dustin) + my niece (Hailly), as well as my photo teacher (Deb), and various other teachers from school.
Yes, I have the ghei in my real life as well. Lol.
What else do people generally say in intro posts?
Um, I'm trying to learn Korean but that's going rather slowly. My computer is made of fail so I can't type in any other language but English. But I plan on really cracking down and studying over the summer. I'm also currently jobless but looking for places to work. I'm poor and often complain about not having money when I buy things I really don't necessarily need
I don't know. I'm a nice person who's pretty open-minded and understanding about things and likes to make friends even though I am seriously shy most of the time. :D

I guess that's it. I hope most of that made sense. Heh. And gave you some sort of idea as to who I am. I get kind of carried away with explaining things instead of keeping things short and simple. I'm made of fail that way.
(v2 because I never managed to finish my autobiography thing I was writing.)
If I remember anything else, I'll come back and edit it. ♥
