FRIENDS ONLY

My journal is FRIENDS ONLY. If you can only see a couple journals and not over 25, please add me to your friends list. I will most likely add you. Comments have been disabled due to spam comments recently. Also, anyone who hasn't posted on LJ for 52 weeks or more has been unfriended.

People I will NOT add to my friends list who have added me, and the reason why not:

dragoroo - Got upset over a friend of mine's friend (who moved to the US from Sweden to get a job), posted an article about her, which eventually got her fired from her job. Dumbass.

phantasmas35 - Hangs out with Marc Leonhardt, who have both made an incorrect judgment about me at a convention. Phan is also known to have his phone/computer snooped around by Marc. (Looks like Phantasmas deleted his account here. Hooray!)
