I am [ready for it?] Beth, Lizbet, Bethulah, Liz, Zabe, Zabey Baby, Lizzy/ie, Bethy, Bethany, Elizabeth etc. I have a few names .... I'm 19, and ginger. YaY.

I actually absolutely love my hair and feel quite chuffed I have such a unique colour of hair, I also like my eyes. I didn't like the colour of my hair when I was younger because of the remarks it attracts, but now loads of people want a piece of me

I had a long term boyfriend a while back, was with him 22months, he finished with me and it crushed me. We argued a lot, sometimes because of my topics on livewire which he snooped over. Since then I'm over him, I missed us, but not him. He changed wayyyy too much. We're now good friends and both actually got partners on the same day. Fate maybe? That's been about 2months now, and while he says he loves me I just can't find it in myself to say it back.

I grew up with both parents until I was 11. Then my dad left, for another woman. I like her, she's more of a mother to me than my own was. My own is a drunk, and an abusive woman. She abused me for the 5years I lived with her in every way but sexually. I actually count myself luckily to not have been sexually abused even though she's marked me in every other way.

Since September [my break up] I have no motivation for life whatsoever. I'm apathetic about life in general and have become distant and uncaring. It's caused me to lose support on this place, and not even feel strong enough to seek it. I have become closer to a few people on here, and one or two offline. But no-one knows everything. I don't know how to ask for help anymore and I'm just not sure I can even find the right words to help anyone else. If I can't help myself how do I know the words I have will help someone else?

I love animals, having 6 cats and only two birds left. I really want a ginger Maine Coon, they're the cutest things ever. I have three Ragdolls, Roo, Tiggr [cream mitted boys] and Phoebe [tortie mitted girl] Then there's the three Maine Coons who are Bob, Ziggy [black boys] and Virgil [white boy] I love my cats and that's definitely what I'd miss when I move out.

My parents have been away for two weeks and I've loved it. It's shown me I think I could do pretty well living on my own. so once I get a steady enough job I think I'm going to start looking. This house is becoming limiting and claustrophobic. My parents don't know about my boyfriend because we dated 3years ago and I don't like the way they talk about him now. It's been 2months so I don't know how in hell I'm going to tell them.

I don't have a job, until I get a copy of my birth certificate. Once I do my temporary job which will last at least 3months starts on 3rd March. I can't wait to get out of the house.

And I haven't written about myself like that in ages.

I'm Lucy and I'm 17, my 18th is in May. I'm a college student studying Psychology, Sociology and English and I am in my second and final year. I enjoy going to college but it is mainly for the educational purposes. My first year in college was good and I met my girlfriend there but nowadays I can feel fairly distant. Not that it bothers me, I'm there to learn and that I am.

I've been with my girlfriend for about 16 months, and we have been living together for 6 months. We live with my Mum at the moment but are hoping to move out when we can. I am wholeheartedly looking forward to starting that adventure with her.

I currently have a part time job, which I do Monday - Friday in the evenings for 2 hours. It's just a cleaning job to bring in some money. I know I want to become something after I leave college I'm just not sure what. Although I know I want to work with people, ideally helping them. I'd love to be a counsellor but I do not want to attend university yet (if at all). So therefore I'll have to see how it goes. Something in social work would also be great, I just hope someone in the field gives me a break as I'm confident I could do it.

I spend my free time with my girlfriend usually. We like to go shopping and such together. We also love our evenings in just watching The L Word and relaxing. My only true hobby would be reading; I love to read. I also have a passion for writing and feel that if I don't make it into the career I would like I may fall back on this.

Life is fairly good, I try to keep an open mind and just relax and enjoy all the moments. Some days things get the better of me but I know obsessing over them doesn't get me anywhere.

I am Sean.  Grand Master of Yore.  Supreme Guru All-knowing.  Crusher of Worlds and Devourer of Goats.  I am he who swallows the sea and melts the mountains.  I am the aged one, father time.  Let all who behold me tremble and be humbled.

Other than that, there's not much to say.  I'm 21 and married for almost two years now to my fabulous wife, Mrs. Devourer of Goats.  I'm at Harding University preparing to finish (I graduate in May '09) work on two BAs: one in History and one in Bible and Religion.  After that, I plan to go to graduate school for church history.  Right now, I'm looking at the religious studies programs at Duke, UNC Chapel Hill, Emory, and SMU.

In the future, I'd like to come back to Harding as a professor of church history, but I'm not too picky about where I teach.  I'd like to write as well.  There aren't enough people in my particular branch of Christianity who have done works on church history that the brethern would find pertinent.

I'll stop there because frankly, I don't want to be like Beth and ramble on for a whole paragraph about my hair.  How sad is that?

I'm Chelsea. I'm 18. I go to college and have a declared major of Psychology, but really I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life. I really actually don't give a shit.
I get restless in closed relationships, so I tend not to enter them anymore. I get all manipulative and usually ruin lives.
I take theme parties as serious as life or death, which I actually don't take all too serious, so that was a bad analogy, but I really like theme parties.
The "1" button on my keyboard doesn't work.

I don't think I have yet typed my name into a LiveWire post, so being the creature of habit that I am, I will continue that trend.

I'm a 22 year old on his way out of college. I'm a neuroscience major with minors in philosophy y español también. Right now I'm working part-time for Kaplan teaching an MCAT prep course on campus, and am going to head off to med school for next year.

The possibility of taking a year off to work on a master's in biochemistry and wait for the local med school to get off the ground and give the first class a four-year free ride is always tempting, of course.

Ooooh, fun.

I'm 18, my name is Amy but my username is amiee because it's spelled prettier and I had no idea what I was doing when I joined livewire. I started University in August last year but left in November because my dad's pretty sick and I've got a few anxiety issues I need to sort out. I go back to uni in September, I'm studying History which I absolutely adore (seriously, don't get me started, I'll be here all day talking about it). Dunno what I want to do after uni, I have a few options, some of which include teaching (history, of course) and having a historical study published. Fun times.

Currently I'm just a bum. Half heartedly looking for a job and tryyyying to get myself to a doctor to deal with the anxiety. I'm also a massive geek - I love reading and consider spending an entire day in the library reading something pretty or studying history to be wonderfullll. My favourite place in the world is St Andrews, closely followed by Prague despite having never been there. My favourite artist is Salvador Dali. Um... nothing much else even remotely interesting about me. I spend a lot of time with my friends when we're all free and secretly wish I could magically rid the whole world of sadness and pain and hurt because it's a wee shame and yeah. I provide hugs and listen to people a lot.

I fancy Billy Elliot, Henry VIII and Mr Bean. Life is grand.

edit: oh yeah, i have all these pretty ideas of having things published and teaching and living it up when i'm older, but in reality, we all know i'm going to become one of them old women with 10 million cats. i welcome that life, sounds fun.

Heylo.

I am Catherine, Cathy, Cath, Cat, Catriona, Katy, Katyduck, Irish,  Cathycathycumpantsweenystumpswonkyeyedirish.
I am 19 years old and in my second year of Optometry, otherwise known as The Degree From Hell.
I am originally from Belfast, Ireland, but am living in Cardiff for now. After I graduate I have no idea where I am going and am mildly terrified at the prospect. Probably somewhere on the south/south-west coast of England as they will pay me most. I am terrified.

I am a bit of a contradiction of a person, alternating between extremes and never ever settling in the middle ground. I have no idea who the fuck I am, and really couldn't give a shit.
I am a happy person. I don't cry very often (apart from when I'm watching TV or films, then I cry at EVERYTHING). I used to be ridiculously depressed for years on end but I finally managed to give myself the series of systemic kicks up the arse that were required to overcome x, y and z hurdles.

I am currently in a relationship but am dubious as to how long it will last.

My favourite things in the whole entire world are my black Yamaha U1 upright piano called Diana, which I spent years and years working and saving for in order to buy myself, my granny who is absolutely adorable and I love her to such little tiny pieces that I'm scared they're all going to blow away, and Audrey Hepburn films/books/pictures/documents/memorabilia/ANYTHING.

I often consider myself socially inept despite my large circle of friends, booming social life and stupid amounts of drunken photos lurking in all corners of my hard-drive. I am quite a strange person whose oddness can be rather too odd at times.

Yesterday morning I was woken up by my next door neighbour having ridiculously loud sex.

I have a bit of a shopping habit that I can't seem to curb. I am obsessed with pretty dresses. I have a lot of them, as well as many other pretty items of clothing, yet I despise every last thing in my wardrobe. I am applying to the financial contingency fund at uni because I have managed to embrace my overdraft rather too enthusiastically with the result that I am now fucked.

I rarely ever talk about myself in real life, but when it comes to the Internet I never seem to be able to shut up...

Um...I'm Fern, I'm 14 and I'm the baby of the mod team and probably yore as well.

I'm a grammar freak. Don't end your sentence with a preposition within 200 yards of me. I'm serious: you don't want to know what I'll do to you.

I love languages of all kinds and want to lean as many as possible.

I want to live in a foreign country when I'm older and would ideally like to be very very rich but not have to do anything. Unfortunately that doesn't sound like it's going to happen.

My diet consists of white buttered toast, coffee (milk, no sugar) and endless cans of diet coke. I am a caffeineaholic who refuses to mend her.

I have crap teeth. I wear a lot of jewellery: as I type, I am wearing two necklaces, a pair of earrings, my watch, a ring, my big purple bracelet, my five little gold and silver bangles, my 3 blue shell bangle things and 6 tiny little beady things that I'm only wearing because I wear them to school.

I am boring as hell in real life (and probably here as well). I am an academic person and I'm on every extracurricular committee and high-level course you can think of and probably a few more as well.

I love baroque music and I want to learn to play the harpsichord. In the meantime, though, I play the recorder (yes, it IS a proper instrument) and the flute and I've just started piano. I adore the recorder and could play it for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours. It just sounds so nice!

I love to listen to singing (apart from opera) but I absolutely refuse to sing, even when I'm on my own.

I have the thickest hair you will ever see and I'm very boring and wear it in a ponytail every single day even though it's getting all lovely and long. Hooray, a paragraph about my hair!

My friends tell me I am vain. I'm inclined to think they have a point.

At any given time, it's pretty certain that I'll have 1001 things written on the back of my hand.

I love to read and stay up very late in order to do it. I hate getting up in the mornings.

I dislike sport but I do gymnastics on Saturdays, which I like.

I'm also waffling on so I'm going to shut up.
