don't worry, be happy!
my journal is friends only. please read my profile before commenting here to be added, and then read my full about me behind the cut. i want you to know a little bit about me before you add me. ♥♥
it is an extended version from my profile. please read before adding me and if you still want to be friends, add me, comment and i will add you back.

{{ i'm naomi, i'm 20. i'm female. i'm outgoing, friendly, cute, girly and independent. i was born in sheffield, north england and lived there until i finished college, got my A levels and then moved to london to get a degree. i graduate next summer 2012 with a degree in media & popular culture. i want to go into marketing and advertising. i live with 4 friends: hayley, louise, kate and hannah who also go to my university & are in the same year as me. we have been friends since freshers week in first year. i live in wimbledon. i work in paddington/edgware road. i go to uni in the suburbs.

back at home i have a very small family. just my mum, my baby brother, my nan, my uncle, and my great auntie. everyone in my family is ill, sick, and can't work. and has never even had a job, or gone far in life. i am the first in my family to go to university.

i am a workaholic. probably because of the family i am from, i want myself to be different and have started well. i have been working since my first year of uni but this year i have worked more than ever. i currently work at an organic grill/cafe/restaurant Core. we have a lot of responsibilities and i am a good waitress. i work very close to full time even with still being a full time student. it is difficult but i refuse to let it beat me. i love working and i always want to be better. i am very close to everyone i work with, we are a small team and they are beginning to be my 2nd family.

i'm depressed and crazy. i'll just say that and get it over with. i have borderline personality disorder. i was diagnosed when i was 13 and then again clarified in an emergency mental health clinic this april. i find it extremely difficult near impossible to be normal, hold normal relationships and friendships, and if you want to know more about it then you can read about it. i don't like talking about it. i have tried to get help and it is impossible. i usually end up running out of hospital or acting as if it wasn't me. i have so many different personalities i don't have a personality. the only thing that keeps me sane is working. i am in and out of a&e with suicide attempts, and it is so hard to keep a balance of 'normal' life. everything i do is extreme and one thing i am is not lax in anything i do. don't let me scare you though! i'm pretty normal, lol.

i LOVE being happy. my happiness comes in extremes and only lasts a short while but when it's here, it's amazing. it usually comes from positive criticism or positive feedback, or being loved/friends/family/shopping/spending money/going travelling. the best way to know me is probably reading my updates/randoms.

i have been with ollie for a long time now. he's a part of me/my life. he says we're a one. it's been 3 or so years now. i usually forget because time means nothing to me, what matters is that he keeps me here still, every day. i have known him since i was 13... and we hopefully move in after i graduate next summer, together. we love going travelling, cuddling, cinema, bars, pubs, cinema, clubs, eating out, cocktails... we are very in love. it's difficult for us to be apart.

i like a lot of normal things. partying, drinking, nice cuisine, getting good grades, reading, libraries, museums, art galleries, parks, culture, architecture, photography, sanrio/hello kitty, nature, writing, emailing, rtas, dancing, coffee. IRL > everyone i meet i like to get to know straight away. i'm very chatty and talkative, and anyone is immediately my friend. i find it easy to make new friends, be outspoken/professional, be "the star" but i still think it's nothing and i have no confidence. my personality, because of my disorder, is very distorted and i don't know who i am myself. i am quite eccentric. i don't know myself at all, i only know what people say to me and about me.

i like indie films, amy winehouse, frank sinatra, hello kitty, and my boyfriend. i am subscribed to STACK an independent magazine where i get sent random zines every month... i love that sort of stuff. i also like high street fashion and buying clothes. i like dressing up and looking nice. i like disney. i have 2 tattoos. i wear glasses. i love reading.
