Hello. I'm Erin, or Moony. I'm a quiet type; outwardly calm, mellow, and terminally indecisive. I'm currently in the midst of figuring out "what do I want to do with the rest of my life," as I'm out of college once and now back in again, and still don't have a clue what I really want to end up doing. I do want to get back to the Southwest; I've spent nine years in the cold and the rain and have discovered that I will never adapt-- I am permanently set on "desert dweller," and might as well admit it. I'm now a Zoology major in Illinois, and in the midst of trying to find a job.
More personally, I'm terribly eccentric, Christian, addicted to tea, misanthropic, asexual, a fan of fantasy and sci-fi novels, mad about horses, fond of silver jewelry, messy, a Breyer collector, childfree, cynical, creative, disorganized, and an English major by birth as well as by diploma.

If you have (somehow) just wandered in: This journal is rarely friendslocked or filtered. If you want to friend me, you don't have to ask. I don't pay attention to these things, so I probably won't even notice. Don't be offended, therefore, if I don't friend you back. It doesn't even mean I'm not reading your journal-- I often bookmark rather than friend, because of the wide disparity in posting frequency among my friends.

Journal titles are from Robert Frost's poem "The Oven Bird."

Things which may be of interest:
The Windstone Dragon Collectors Mailing List (not just for dragons!), which I moderate.
The Humanx Commonwealth ML for fans of Foster's novels, likewise.
The Miles Vorkosigan ML, along with lmbujold, for fans of Lois McMaster Bujold's series.
The herpers community, for those who prefer coldblooded company.
The save_a_life community, for shelter and rescued pets.
