hola there my dears,

i haven't typed one of these in at least two years. this is my replacement for a 'friends only' entry, even though most of this journal with be locked to friends anyways.

quick recap;

i'm natalie catherine. all my old lj friends will remember me as slutatron, misselectrica, ___lonelydoll, plasticrown, or whatever. for all you guys, here is a ten second update on what i've been doing with the last two years of my life;

- switched high schools
-went a little crazy for a bit and dealt with your usual degrassi style drama (stuff i'm more likely to get into in you know, actual entries)
-bleached my hair, changed my life
-got a boyfriend, who i've been dating for two years despite drama (see above)
-graduated highschool. i'm eighteen. i don't know what the fuck i'm doing with my 'year off'. getting a job perhaps? i'm moving to toronto when it's feasible
-i'm currently in the process of writing two novels and adapting 'the whores on the hill' into a screenplay. please don't ask me how that's going at the moment.

anyways guys, give me an add if you still trust me to actually update and i'll add you back (probably already did).

for everyone else, leave me a comment if the life of an eighteen year old sometimes novelist always dramaqueen interests you in the slightest. i'll see what i can do :)
