I'm Amanda. I'm 19. I tend to like things. I especially like making lists about myself, other people and my viewpoints. I also like animals, feeling safe, remembering things and looking at / taking pictures. Some things I DON'T like include math, vomit, conflict and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Listography is probably my second-favourite website, after Livejournal. I reveal more of myself o...

furiousrose about me (I have never...)

  • Spoken in a British accent, especially when I'm feeling haughty, snobby, wise, funny or in charge.
  • Re-enacted scenes from movies with my friends.
  • Played sick to get out of school.
  • Been a little High-And-Mighty about certain things (though I wish I hadn't been so arrogant).
  • Kept fighting him for all I'm worth.
  • Fought with my Dad (this needs its own point).
  • Kissed him.
  • Asked Destiny to make me noodles (she is an AMAZING cook!)
  • Punched Luke in the face at Angela's birthday party. (Lightly)
  • Had a water fight with my Dad.
  • Thrown popcorn at people in a movie theater. (We didn't hit anyone)
  • Stole away into the night, even if it was just my backyard.
  • Secretly gone to a cafe concert with Angela, while my parents thought I was at her house and her parents thought I was at mine.
  • Slipped on to someone else's barn property with my cousin under an electric fence so he could show me the horses. (And we didn't get caught).
  • Found him beautiful, despite him not wanting me any more.
  • Acted like an idiot, continually pushing limits, just to make a damned guy smile.
  • Been seriously attracted to a girl multiple times.
  • Been seriously attracted to most people that I talk to daily...
  • ... and had a little pet crush on each of them at one point or another, too.
  • Thrown a punch when he asked me to marry him.
  • Imagined multiple other lives for myself.
  • Pretended to be leading those lives, playing a game inside my head, during the day, acting "mysterious" for no apparent reason, though never actually LYING about it, just for the fun of it.
  • Rolled my eyes.
  • Set it aflame.
  • Encouraged her to divorce him.
  • Felt unreasonably proud.
  • Been unable to STAND him when he's sad or pessimistic, because it breaks my heart.
  • Danced while I was singing - in public.
  • Gone up to a perfect stranger to ask the time or tell a story.
  • Made secret clubs and organizations that lasted for a few hours.
  • Broken away from the Christian path (though I will ALWAYS love Christianity).
  • Grabbed Sam's french fries and run. (I gave them back. But it was still funny).
  • Ended our friendship, despite how much I still care about her, because of how much she changed, how much I changed and then changed again, how she let everyone have a go at me without trying to stop them, how she just stopped caring about me without admitting or maybe even understanding it, how arrogant she became, among other things.
  • Buying flowers for someone.
  • Falling in love at first sight, even though it had the worst and most disastrous results.
  • Loved the movie "Tangled".
  • Stood up for what I believed in, even though I was wrong.
  • Having to hide my food so that my parents don't get to it.
  • That I'm taking my time going through high school, and discovering that sometimes things get better.
  • Continuing to try to make friends, despite so many traumatic attempts.
  • Continuing to believe in the power of love, despite even MORE traumatic events and so many people bringing me down in ways that some people won't ever be able to understand.
  • Having a commitment-phobia when it came to accounts on the Internet. Because if I didn't have it, I wouldn't be currently learning the lesson of sticking to things (like going back to my old LJ, because I'd made the commitment to that journal and I was sick of skipping out).
  • Seeing "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as "Our movie". Being reminded of him while watching it.
  • FALLING IN LOVE WITH HIM, and fuck you for saying otherwise.
  • Saying "No" when I really mean it.
  • Been an absolute bitch to someone who was in a position of authority and called me "a maniac" and said that I wasn't a good person. Repeatedly.
  • Treated a guy who I was in an abusive relationship with like SHIT once I realized what was happening - at the time, I had actually forgotten that I could leave the relationship. That that was an option. So I did the only thing I could possibly think of, which was to treat him just as badly as he was treating me.
  • Ended our friendship when she started dating him, despite knowing everything that he did to me.
