This is Mary also known as Chester, Mary Mac, or plain Mrs. McLennon (ha!). I'm 22 years old and I'm everything but common. I'm well known for my swinging moods, so one moment I'm all hyper and crazy and the other I'm all deep and philosophical. I'm from Mexico so my mother language is obviously... Spanish. But as an England obsessed, I self-taught English and I'm actually going to be an English teacher. I'm in my second year of college, so life isn't actually easy. I have a dog called Paul (yes, I'm cool as that) it's a salt and pepper mini-Schnauzer, as soon as I get a female I'll call her Linda. I'm unique in my own way, I don't follow trends and they kind of annoy me. I can't bring myself to like someone that doesn't have an own personality. I'm a dreamer and I believe in mankind. I'm really hard to understand, but it's ok, I don't understand myself most of the time either. I love who I am, so no... I don't want to be like anybody else when I grow up. I laugh at stupid things. I've been called a rebel more than once. I like cartoons like The Little Mermaid. I think I was born in the wrong time because I like music/movies/fashion from the sixties/fifties more than nowadays. I don't really like girly stuff like fashion or make up tips, I rather go and watch my Superman's movies collection instead. It's kinda hard for me to trust people, and I don't consider everyone a friend. I have very few real friends but treasure them more than anything else. My mom's my best friend. I wear glasses since I was 7, so trends can kiss my arse. I'm blind as a bloody bat. And my favourite ice cream is McFlurry with crunch. If you want to know more about me... just add me.
Linkin Park is the band of my life. I've been a fan for 7 years now and thanks to them I've met the best friend I could ever ask for. They've been there in the good, the bad and the worse in my life, they've helped me through every single problem in my life and I'll never find the words to describe how grateful I am or how much I love this band. Their music is one of the best things that could have ever happen to me. I've been called Chester since I was only 16, so I'm more used to that name than my own. Chester Bennington is my idol and I adore him. But not because he's hot like a bunch of teenagers that have just found about him, but because he's a really good role model (even if you can't believe it). Even if he went through too much shite in his past, he found a way to always get up, and eventually, he made his dream come true and he deserves everything he has. Everyone of them is special in their own way, Chester, Mike, Brad, Rob, Joe and Phoenix. They're the best.
The Beatles. Just like almost every person of my age, I've known about them since I can remember, but I've been a fan for only 5 years. I can only remember that I've loved John Lennon since I can remember, and firstly, when I started to be a fan, he was still my favourite. But after listening to them, reading about them and getting to know their personalities and achievements. Now I can't choose a favourite. John Lennon and Paul McCartney are my favourites in a way, but I love the four of them equally. When I listen to Ringo I get the same thrill than when I listen to Paul. Or when I watch a George's video I feel the same thing than when I'm watching a video of John. I'm more related to John, we have lots of things in common, too many to be quite honest. But they're all special, they all have something that makes me love them so much it hurts. I'll always miss John and George. And I'll always love the fab four from Liverpool.
I started liking Nirvana when I listened to You Know You're Right for the first time, I think I was 16, but I started being an "official" fan at 18 like with The Doors. Actually, my first obsession was Nirvana, I bought a Nirvana CD way before I bought a The Doors' or Beatles' one. I used to read a lot about Kurt Cobain and listen to Bleach a lot. When I started being a fan of The Doors I was obsessed with The End and used to sing it all the time, a friend of mine used to borrow me their albums until I bought them (all of them). The friend that got me into The Doors died three years ago, so... I have a special feeling for The Doors after it. It's like a connection with my friend. I love their music (both, Nirvana and Doors') and I get crazy and happy every time I listen to it, every time I drink I always end up listening to The Doors haha.
I'm a serious movie-whore. I watch movies almost as often as I listen to music. I'm starting a huuuge collection of movies that now I'm left with no space to keep them in my room. I love actors like James Dean, Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh. Even though James Dean and Ewan McGregor can be called my favourite actors. Star Wars saga, Superman saga (counting Superman Returns), Moulin Rouge, Alfie (Caine's version), and East Of Eden are my top favourite movies, which I own them all and I've watched them more than once. I also like many other actors, too many to name them all. But with these you can get the idea that I'm a really random person and that I have no pattern in music or movies. My way to choose movies to rent is this one. I watch one and fall for the leading actor, eg. Ewan McGregor, I watched Star Wars Episode I and fell for him, so that led me to rent Moulin Rouge, and lots of his movies. Then I watch another movie, eg. Alfie, so I fall for Jude and next time I rent his movies, and so on. I only buy the ones I've watched more than once (or that I plan to watch again and again).
These are some of the things I love. I love to read, every time I can (even in the middle of a class) I read. I also love to write and do it as often as I can. Music is my life, so I'm always with my iPod (which is just like the one in the picture). My computer is like my little world, where I can do anything I want. My guilty pleasure, I smoke, my favourite brand of ciggies are Camels. Photograph is one of my passions, now that I got a digital camera I'm always taking pictures. I also have a huuge collection of movies. I love too many things. I have collections of many things too, of my fandoms, books, DVD's, everything. Like I've said, I'm a really random and different, so I like not many common things. I rather stay at home reading than partying my youth away (sorry!). I've been called a weird just because I don't like what most kids my age likes. I'm different and proud of it. I also love graphic and web-design, and I think I don't suck... so, it's ok.
These are the sites I spend my life working with and that I love like a mother love their children. Here, also my LJ communities where you can spend a little of your time.
Look who I got at beatle_rating hehe are you surprised?... I'm not really hehe
I'm the White Album at record_rating, and this is what my friend thisisalyssa said about it: "You're The White Album. Why? Because you're so many different things all wrapped up in one fab package. You're thoughtful, and loud, and caring, and spontaneous- you're a mixture of everything, and it's perfect".
That's all, but please, add me first, before you request to be added, 'cause then I add people and they don't add me back and that's not fair. Oh and I hate fights, so, if you're not willing to accept the kind of things I write on my journal you're free not to add me haha. I like meeting new people but the least we can do is have something in common to talk about, if you don't have anything in common with me, there's no point of adding me.
