I'm Amy (or "Cranberry," as most people know me online). I recently completed a four-year honors journalism degree and am using my higher education to... uh, work in a bakery. (Actually, I've done a little writing for FASHION Magazine's website -- I recapped Canada's Next Top Model and The Hills, and I hope to do more freelancing in the future.) I live on Prince Edward Island -- for now, anyway. It's not the most exciting place. I like watching Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights, Dexter, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, Chuck and The Office (among other shows, but listing all of them would make this sentence ridiculously long -- let's just say I like TV); reading (mostly fiction) books; taking pictures of my pets; illegally patting zoo animals; and mocking various things.

I put a whole bunch of random stuff down as my interests, and I'm amused that other people have also listed such things as despots, shiny things, packing peanuts and bits of string.

I'm not really into social networking sites (although I do have a Facebook) or maintaining multiple blogs -- I'm only on Flixster (which is fun), Flickr and Twitter. I used to post at Hissyfit and 3WA, and I worked for Fan Forum as a supermod for several years. I ran SaveWonderfalls in 2004-05. I now post occasionally at TWoP, NC and SD. If you know me from one of those places (or if you just like my journal), feel free to add me as a friend. I'll add you back as long as you can spell and don't update ten million times a day or do many quizzes or memes. I really hate those.

(Oh, and sometimes I don't add people back because I don't know who they are. If you friend me, leave me a comment telling me who you are and how you found me!)

If you have no idea who I am and you find yourself on my friends list, that's because I either stumbled across your journal and think you're cool, or you're friends with one of my other friends, in which case I know you're cool. I'm not stalking you or anything. Well, probably not, anyway...
