Add Me: Find Friends on LJ

Hello, been forever since I've posted here..
outshining
I'm Tiffany and I'm 33.

I've been on LJ since around 2002 (you can reference wicked_garden that's what I used to be under).

I have a new lj name, paid account, and trying to have a new outlook on life :). I should be getting married this year if finances prevail (I've been with my fiancee since 2010 and we got engaged 12-13-14 :). No kids or pets yet, but I'd like both of those.

I work part-time retail, used to work health care as an aide...thinking of getting back into it if I can.

I have some mental and health issues, so if you don't like those discussed, you can pass me by. I have a low immune system, anxiety, depression, and addiction issues. I hope this doesn't make people avoid me. I am brutally honest in my journal. I talk about sex (only with one man now, of course) and addiction to alcohol. I've beaten drug addiction and self harm addiction, I'm just still battling the booze. I am wanting to take a break from that, though, so I will make this post, and when I make 30 days I will make another add me post :D I don't really have a social life anymore (I moved away from my friends/family to be with my fiancee; I'm an only child and my parents are divorced and live far from me now) so my online friendships are important to me and I'm looking to keep those and develop more if possible.

My dream is to be a writer, but I haven't written much lately; I hope to get back into it soon.

I read every day, problem is I re-read a lot, lol. Favorite authors are Stephen King, Anne Rice, George R.R. Martin, V.C. Andrews is a very guilty pleasure. I like historical fiction and biographies and I'm trying to read more classics, as well.

I love rock and pop music and I can listen to country and rap as well. Tori Amos is my favorite musician of all. Tool is my favorite band but I'm a big fan of 90's rock.

I like comedy tv shows and drama/horror movies. I'm working on conducting a list.

I would appreciate any adds of active journals, livejournal has always been important to me. :)

Add Me Post 2.0
nerdycrow
A lot of my other friends have been making newer posts here so I thought I might go ahead and post again and see what turns up. I go by Crow on LiveJournal, my girlfriend Cricket wants to keep our blogs out of the public eye of those we know in the real world (with special exceptions) so we don't use real names on here. I am an avid gamer, and my girlfriend I live together in a small house in the mountains of North Carolina. I'm also a student at Appalachian State University majoring in Computer Science, and I work in a grocery store that has a customer base of mostly tourists which makes for an interesting time. I post mostly about the games I'm playing, things going on in my life, classes etc. Just whatever comes to mind. I don't post everyday, but I check at least from the LJ app every day.

Favorite game series:

Kingdom Hearts
Assassin's Creed
Uncharted
Persona
The Last of Us
Silent Hill
Pretty much any super story focused games.

I get around pretty well in the gaming scene, chances are even if I haven't played it I've heard of it, or you might get me interested in the game. I focus pretty majorly on story in video games though, not to say gameplay isn't important but a game with a good story is bound to get me hooked right away.

Main modern game consoles are PS3, PS4, Wii, 3DS, Steam. I own a lot of older systems though, love my PS2 to death. Xbox is really the only system that hasn't majorly impressed me, I have a 360 but I didn't move it with the rest of my stuff and the only exclusive I miss is Alan Wake. (Okay and maybe Halo, it's a very guilty pleasure of mine) No hate on the Microsoft fans though.

A small sampling of TV shows and movies that I like as well.

Doctor Who
Sherlock (Most things Sherlock, specifically the BBC series though)
American Horror Story (Midway through season 3 currently)
Firefly/Serenity
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Haven't watched it in forever though, about the only vampire media to hold my interest lol)
Most Studio Ghibli films
Death Note
Sword Art Online (Reading through the first book currently)
Most any horror movies, especially found footage movies. (Love the genre of found footage, even if it can be hit or miss, love the concept to death)

I guess that's really all you need to know. I'm open to adding anyone, so come on down!

Hello everyone!
arie_arie
My name is Arie. I'm 23. And I can be found in Northeastern, US.

I was here on LiveJournal years ago, had transitioned into writing in a classic physical journal, but am now venturing back to online. I have come to a point in life where I would love to share personal experiences.

A little about myself... I am working under a volunteer corps as a case manager and public health worker for a primarily homeless and mentally ill population. I live in a big, old house with four other members who work at other non-profits. It's been a fascinating year for me. In the fall, I will be heading to medical school.

On a more light-hearted note, I love pole dancing and I love food. I'm not sure which I love more.

I tend to write about the people I serve, my close relationships, and just daily happenings. Y'know, what you probably expect out of a journal. If you would like to be buddies, shoot me a message/comment.

:D

Hey guys
quirkycricket
Hi! I go by Cricket on LJ because that's what my boyfriend, Crow, calls me. I don't put my real name on my blog not because I don't want LJ people to know... but this blog is hella private and I don't want the people who KNOW me to know. Get it?

What I like:
Horror movies
Books
Stephen King
Reality TV
Video games
Stuffed animals

What I don't like:
Bigots
Racists
Weirdos

I post about my day to day life, gaming, and junk like that. I'm working towards getting into Appalachian State University (I live in North Carolina by the way) to become a speech therapist. Right now I'm finishing up community college because I took a few years off after highschool. Oh yeah, I'm also a burn survivor so if you're a pyro please do not add me I can't take those antics. I'm very active and have a small friend's list so I want some more people on my feed!

Hello and Good Morning. :)

I'm Min, a 37yo girl from the US and I'd like to have some more friends. :)

What I like:

I like hearing about people's days, random thoughts and unserious contemplations such as “Why did the person in front of me at the store just get out a checkbook and is trying to write one while talking on their phone very loudly?”. Although I rarely do them, I like some of those memes like 30 day ones can sometimes be fun to read as long as they don't ask things like “last person who texted you” or “put your mp3 player on shuffle...” I also like reading about pets, gaming, dreams, school, craftyness, food, how you were a dinosaur for a few years in a past life and the specs on the new computer you just built. :)

What I post about:

My pets, my gaming, art (I recently retook up painting), food, my best friend, my family, mental & physical health, dreams, random stuff... basically I write about some of the things I like reading about. :P

Reasons I want you to add me:

You have and talk about pets. I especially love dogs!

You like Gobbolins and Orcys!

You play games. It doesn't really matter if it's computer, console, card, party, board, pen & paper or I, Spy as I can relate to all of those. :) It does matter though if you are elitist about what/how you play.

You find absurd and silly things funny. That's how I describe my humor, however I've been told I'm pretty cheeky. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I'm not usually sarcastic and I have trouble identifying it on here.

Reasons I don't want you to add me:

You live a yuppie lifestyle or can afford to travel all over the world, but you don't work. In other words, I just can't relate to rich people and your woes about spilling wine on your $9,000 couch.

Your journal is primarily used to talk about sex, kids, drugs or alcohol. (think I just excluded most people's main interests) Animal abuse makes me very upset, so those that may do work in that field and post about it will make me cry all the time. :(

You lurk or post once every 2 weeks without even checking your friends page and you start out every entry with “Sorry I haven't been around.” You have said or thought “I comment when I have something to say,” which simply translates into “I let you know when I'm offended or when I want to correct you.”

You are new to lj or are coming back from a long “hiatus.” You'll quit after a week or two and it's annoying.

You are miphobic. It means mental illness phobic. (I coined that term.) I don't like the idea of including that I have schizoaffective disorder in posts like these, but apparently some people have real issues with it whether or not we were getting along with each other added.

Other Stuff:

I've had this journal since August '14 but I've been journaling since 2004 and I post everyday and the reason I'm here is for social interaction. Without any interaction we are just journaling near each other. Friend Street goes two ways. Yes, I really did say that. :P

I renamed this journal 3 months ago because I didn't feel my original username was very fitting.

hello .
jlynnaz30
Well, should say I've been on and off Livejournal for many years.  I recently restarted mine and am looking for friends.  Here's some quick info:

My name is Jamie; 33 years old
Residing in Mesa, Az
Been with my man for 10 years
We welcomed our new little boy, Ethan James, on 11/11/14
I worked in childcare for the past 9 years, but recently quit so I can take care of Ethan (going kind of crazy!)
Hobbies:  Crafting, video games(not hardcore; Wii games and the classic nintendo & super nintendo, Penpaling(yes, I write "snail mail" letters.  I'm old fashioned that way). movies(big superhero movie fan), swimming, window shopping.

Just message me

Active users unite!
I see you.
as_you_sleep
Lately my friend's page has been sort of dead. I decided it might be a good idea to not only revamp my journal (It's finally finished!) but also my flist. I'm looking for active users with ANY of the following qualities:

1. Some intelligence. (Who wants to talk to a dummy?)
2. Has an interesting writing style.
3. Drama. (Who doesn't like drama? Let's be honest)
4. Can openly discuss their sex lives.
5. Is not afraid to speak their minds.
6. Likes to have friends that post about music, videos, discuss movies and video games, and is an all around fun person.
7. Openly discusses most of, if not all, their relationship triumphs and fails.

If any one of these 7 applies to you, then add me. I don't bite...hard.

How about some info about me? I'll do the quick version. This is what I look like...

I"m dancing like a dork.Collapse )

Or do you want pictures instead? Ok, cool...

KevinCollapse )

That's out of the way, so now more about me...

I'm a 30 year old man who's a true Boston fan, because I am a native of the area (the tattoo with every team in it helps too), that has the following hobbies: martial arts (since the age of 7), photography (since the age of 16), video games (call me "destroyer of games"), watching movies (huge movie buff here!), studying history, and listening to/learning about music (I've been to over 50 concerts in my life).

I speak my mind fully and don't hold back. There are those who will shy away, but check out what friends wrote about me on my profile to see a bit of the real me. Yes, they even posted bad stuff. Lol. I enjoy people that know some history and can have a full discussion.

Some of my favorite bands are: Psyclon Nine, Nirvana, Mindless Self Indulgence, Smashing Pumpkins, Cold, The Birthday Massacre, Slipknot, Rammstein, The Used, and Lacuna Coil. There's a ton more, but you get the gist.

I'm slightly obsessed with the UFC and I make predictions for each event that comes along. I'm at about 94% correct with my predictions, which I must admit is pretty good.

I'm a dedicated Xbox fan and haven't touched any other system since the first Xbox's release many years ago. I'm an achievement whore, which is bad, but oh well. Definitely take the time to add me on Xbox Live if you have me added as an LJ friend.

That's all I can think of for now. If you have any questions, then please ask. See you bye.

Hello, Hello!
minrodasladd
Hello, everyone! My name is Sydney. I'm 22, from the US, teacher's aid/university student/Messianic.
I am just poking around to see if there is anyone who would like to be friends :)
I love learning languages (especially Hebrew, Russian/Ukrainian, Spanish/Ladino and anything else, haha), reading, writing (anyone in NaNoWriMo?), and being outdoors. Korean Dramas are usually on television and watching the news in different languages is amusing. And, food... how did I forget food?! Trying new foods is a passion.
If anyone else enjoys these things, let's chat! :) I don't post too much on my journal, so you can visit my profile for personal stuff.
Have a good day!

Looking for a few good friends!

Hello all! My name is Lindsay and I am not new to Live Journal. I've been on and off here for a number of years and this is my sixth journal (I think.) I am currently looking for some new people to get to know as getting reacquainted with some of my old friends on here.

For starters I am 31 years old and live in Nebraska. I am not married nor do I have kids. I currently work in retail and have been for quite a number of years. I LOVE to read as reading and books make my happy. So if you are a lover of books you would be great game for a friendship! I also like to watch TV but not as much as read! I'm pretty old school when it comes to TV as some of my favorite shows are Roseanne, Full House, Home Improvement and Unsolved Mysteries. Although I like some of the newer shows on TLC which are Kate Plus 8 and My Big Fat Fabulous Life (can't wait till they come back this summer!)

I am a total news junkie and follow the news daily! My main news channel is CNN which I have my TV tuned to most of the time since I don't usually watch regular modern TV.

Besides reading some of my other loves are blogging and exercising. Although I would prefer to exercise outside you can't do much of that during the cold winter months.

I also LOVE music. Some of my favorite singers are Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Fiona Apple, Kate Nash etc. (there is too many to name) and YES, in case you are wondering I ONLY listen to girl singers.

In my journal I write A LOT about my life and my family. I'm currently going through something really shocking that I recently found out about and I find out that my journal is therapeutic to me not only writing in it but reading the comments of support from people on here. Some of the friends I've had on here I've known since my very first journal. That's been quite a long time.

So, add me if you think we would get along okay or have some common interests! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks! :)

Here we go again...
Sigh

By no means is this my very first time here. I took a few years off and then I couldn't remember my old account name or password.. so I made a new one.

I think that this one is going to be more fitting to what I have grown into. I'm also going to try to keep up with it.

So let me tell you a little about myself. I love watching horror movies and I love picking them apart and talking about them to people. I love drawing and I'm currently doing fractals and learning 3D art.

The only fandom right now that I am really big into is Ghostbusters. Yeah, I know it is an old fandom, but I don't care. I have always loved it and I do believe that I will always love it. There are so many things about the fandom that I love. And no, it is not because I have a major crush on Egon/Harold. Well, ok, that is one of the reasons. There are several others.

I love table top games. I usually go out every Monday night to our local comic book shop and play table top games with a bunch of my friends. We play whatever the game host brings with them. Some of the games we have played in the past range from Zombie Dice to Smallworld. Sometimes the games are super simple and fun and sometimes they take a good deal of strategy. I love either one.

So yeah, that is basically all there is to know about me. I'm a nerdy female that loves horror, Ghostbusters, art, science, and tabletop games. What more could you ask for? Hehehe.

Recent return

Recently returned from a long hiatus. I post sporadically, but it's always a good(ish) read.

I like to read long posts about your day to day life, especially if your life is dramatic.

I don't have kids so I'm not really interested in yours so don't add me if all you talk about are your kids. No hate, I'm just not interested.

I'm 27, female, live in New Zealand, trying to get divorced (but not trying very hard), engaged to someone else who's probably not the best fit for me but whatever. Work with apples and stonefruit which is boring but pays the bills.

You're likely to read a lot about my day to day work life which is sometimes interesting, stuff about my relationship which is mostly moaning, pictures of stuff I make (I crochet and am looking to start a business), and people I dislike and the reasons why.

Look forward to meeting you!

I am supposed to be writing two papers due tomorrow, but since that’s not really working, I’m on LJ! I’ve been writing a bit more recently and feel like I’m just throwing my thoughts out into empty space with how quiet my friend list has been so I guess it’s time for new additions. I’ve been using LJ for well over ten years and I really never see myself leaving. There’s just a different kind of openness you can have with LJ friends that is hard to attain with real life friends. I miss that interaction more than anything now that my friend list seems dormant. Anyway, more about me.

I am 27, but feel 40 and 12 at the same time. Essentially I’m a boring old lady who gets ridiculously excited about nonsense. In January I got married and I’m ECSTATIC to no longer be planning a wedding. Don’t get me wrong, it was definitely one of the best days of my life, but there were manymanymany times throughout the planning process where we almost said screw it and just went to the court house. I am working full time in a job that frustrates me more by the day and actively looking for something else, sad as I will be to leave behind some of my coworkers. I write a lot about my frustrations with work – fair warning. I also write a lot about school as I just started working on my bachelor’s degree again after taking a hiatus for the wedding and honeymoon. Third on the list of primary subjects in my journal is my weight loss struggle. In the past I lost 125 pounds and got very close to my goal weight, but I’ve gained ALL of it back and I’m having a really hard time with that.

In friends I’m pretty open to people from all different walks of life. I will warn that I am an unashamed atheist so for those of a strong religious persuasion, we may not gel particularly well if my rare occasional rants about believers will offend you. I also hate children with a fiery passion and have a dark and snarky humor at times, so there’s another potential area of offense for sensitive souls.

My journal is almost entirely friends only so let me know if you add me so I can add you back. Looking forward to getting to know new friends!

Hi I'm Liz. I have most of my info in my profile but here's some stuff quick;

I have been on LJ forever. I have used several blogs before and after this. I took about a year hiatus and decided I wanted to use this blog again so here I am. All of my friends are inactive and I'd like to find people that want to read and comment as much as I do :)

I love writing, number one. If we're friends, expect your feed to be full lol. I will sometimes miss a day or a week, but then other times I post 20 times in a day. I also love to journal, smoke weed, and stay home. I'm a huge loner, I much prefer internet relationships over real life ones. Actually, I have no real life friends except my boyfriend Matthew, so expect to hear a lot about him... We've been together 5 years this October and live in a duplex with our 2 cats.
I have had an eating disorder for most of my life, so I do write a lot about that, please be aware of that. I have been in and out of recovery for the past 5 years. I don't know what or where I am right now.
I love space, and aliens, the color pink, hello kitty, everything creepy and everything overly cute. I am obsessed with floral print, I love to be super girly, but I also love to be boyish and have a bad potty mouth and rotten sense of humor. The easily offended should not befriend me.

All my old posts are on private, so appologies for that..they're not relevant to my life now anyway. I am slowly building up friends only posts again, and like I said, I do post a lot, and would love to find others that post often as well :)

Feel free to add me, just let me know so I can add you back!

Hello all!

My journal is where I write about my family, pets, and job. I keep it pretty upbeat but life isn't perfect and sometimes I'll post something reflecting this. My journal is something I use not just to remember things but to hash out my feelings, let others know what's on my mind (I'm pretty quiet in real life), and keep track of goals and plans. My journal's public too so check it out if you'd like!

When reading about other journals I like humor, life issues or events, pets, family times, and nature outings. My favorite posts are the longer ones because it lets me get to know the writer better.

Me? I'm scatterbrained but always attempting to organize, a maker of horrible meals, a frequent singer, someone who doesn't like shoes (fancy socks are good!), collector/hoarder of plush toys, lover of chickens (if you ever mention them in a post you'll see what I mean), wearer of things neon and glaring, dream adventurer, and social experimenter.

I'm looking forward to meeting you! c:

Oh, and if I seem familiar, you might have seen me here before.

I'm Alexi, 27 and studying Engineering while working in retail. I love books and movies especially foreign movies. Fave shows include Silicon Valley, Homeland, Pitbulls & Parolees, How To Get Away With Murder, Family Guy, South Park, Catfish, Girls and PLL. Animals and dogs especially are my absolute weakness and I have a Sharbrador girl whom I adore.

I love technology especially mobile technology and tend to geek out when a new product is launched like the new Galaxy S6. I'm hooked on Tumblr and Facebook and am somewhat of a Grammar Nazi. In my journal I talk about my job, classes, my love and social life and just general venting. I normally post 3-5 times a week and would prefer people who are fairly active on LJ and people with whom I have something in common.

^ That's me. This photo sums me up pretty well. I'm not serious, or wise. I'm just a joker.

There's some things I want in life:

- I want human interaction, without the having to interact with humans.
- I want to write my book. I want to write a million little things as well, on post it's and napkins and put them up around my room and lie on my bed and read them all, over and over.
- I want to be able to video record my dreams, so I can replay them. I think about my dreams and describe them to people in "scenes" as if I'm re-telling the plot to a movie, or a play.
- I want to make a change in this world. Even if it's not a global change. I work with a non profit organization and so I feel like I am taking steps to be this change I want to see in the world.
- I want ALL children to live in a safe environment, without fear. I believe it shouldn't hurt to be a child.
- I want to be in a Trent Reznor and Jeordie White sandwich. That would really be nice.
- I want to be healthy but I don't want to exercise or give up junk food.

I'm really weird and if you can put up with really weird people, who sometimes go on a big rant about injustices in the world. Or about how my Nanna tried to trick me into eating corned beef by telling me it's silverside... Then we should be friends.

I literally JUST thought up a decent subject title. . .and then it ran away from me. O_O
Quote- Nothing Productive
crazybellatrix
Hello!
I feel like it has been a while since I've posted to this community, so here goes! =]

About me: I'm Loki, female, 23, Aries, and currently living & working in England. I love to travel & coming across others that also enjoy this passion. I grew up all over the world; my next destination is a birthday trip to Prague! I may only be 23, but don't let my age fool you- I've had quite a lot of life experience, including tragedies, and the daily struggle of living with mental illness =/ My sense of humor can be silly, and I believe in honesty & optimism. I like to keep an open mind. I'm an extrovert, and can be a complete & utter dork.

The glorious things in life: When I'm not on the internet, I love to socialize with my silly friends & have a good ol' pint at my local. Some of the things I adore are colours {as you can probably see from my profile!}, cats, Norse Mythology, Egyptology, docmentaries, fantasy/sci-fi/psychological/animated films, Disney, symphonic/heavy metal, historical pubs, the mostly wonderful city that I live in, and I should probably go to Starbucks Anonymous.

Loki? Loki is not my real name, but it is the name I go by.

What you'll find in my journal: I tend to write about what goes on in my life, my friends, my family, work, Question of the Day if it interests me, and the occasional meme. You'll also find ramblings about films, TV shows, etc..

Please take it away: I can't stand narrow-minded people, those that judge you without getting to know you first, chavs, those that are easily offended, drama in general unless it's a play or musical on stage, constant whinging & negativity, and among various other annoying things, those that constantly nag you because, say, you haven't updated in a few days. I'm not a fan of those that butcher the English language either.

Right. Enough rambling for now. xD.
I've got more on my profile including my list of interests, too.

My LJ is friends only. I love to make new friends, read about the lives of others, and share my adventures, too. If you'd like to be friends, drop a comment in my 'locked' post, and we can go from there! ♥

Star Trek - Boldly Go
ireflect
Hi all!

31F, from the Northeast USA … looking for some fun people to add. My profile has a lot about me and my interests/hobbies, if you’re curious.

Right now my journal is focusing on a number of things:
Movie reviews – I pick a movie a day or every few days from Netflix that I probably would never have watched, and then watch it and write some thoughts on it. I am by no means a professional reviewer, especially since I have no background in film (other than I like movies :D). You’ll quickly note it doesn’t take much for me to enjoy a movie, lol.

Daily Stuff – I do write my daily posts too. At the moment life is pretty mundane. I am taking some classes at a local college, so I sometimes write about that. I work in an open-plan office… ‘nuff said. I am very close to my family and friends and often write about them. And yeah … just random things I might come across I find interesting. I also do the daily livejournal question if I have an answer for it.

Photos – I am trying to get back into one of my favorite past times. I used to carry my camera with me everywhere and for the last 5 or so years, I haven’t really taken many photos. So I am hoping to rekindle my love of photography. (Actual reason for joining livejournal was this…but I am getting into writing too.)

Memes – I don’t do these all the time, but once in a while I might do one of those “30 Days of Questions” type of things.

All my entries are public. If you’d like to browse through and take a peek first.  Hope to friend some new people!

add me, fellow insomniacs
inked_athena

some interests: literature, movies, music, all kinds of art in general. My tastes are incredibly eclectic, so if you aren't into variety you probably don't want to add me. Lets see... more interests: LOVE video games, tech stuff, making things, cooking, travel, learning languages, animals, skincare, law, social work, writing (fiction and academic), science...

I grew up overseas, so I'd esp love to connect with some fellow expat kids (Saudi Arabia or elsewhere).

Top 5 movies are probably: original Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Young Frankenstein, The Big Lebowski, and Lawrence of Arabia.

Last book read: The Art of War

Last band seen: The Replacements

Last video game played: Skyrim

Last amazing meal: rare steak (amazing cut) & creole shrimp

Age: old enough to know better &finally wise enough to act accordingly
(or 34, if you need a number)

Gender: female

Relationship status: married (to the most badass dude evah!)

random fact: I've been peed on by an orangutan

life philosophy: Don't be an asshole; Leave that to the politicians and professional critics. Never discuss politics or religion at the dinner table (a.k.a. in mixed company). If you don't like it, don't look! Being kind costs nothing. A question that is always good to ask: Is what I'm about to do really necessary? Don't say something to someone online that you'd hesitate to say to their face. Even cool/likeable/fun people are capable of horrible things. Moral relativism is often really just a mental get out of jail free card. Mind your own business and expect the same of others. Always say please and thank you, most ESPECIALLY to your significant other.

politics: to trust any political party is beyond naive... it's insanity

If you dont routinely factor intention and context into social interactions then you're stumbling around half-blind.

Some favorite TV shows: Archer, American Horror Story, TWD, Sex & the City, Star Trek, Sherlock, SNL, Absolutely Fabulous, Rome, Bob's Burgers, Jimmy Fallon, Fringe

Relevant to my interests:
Oldwave/Classic Alternative/80s
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Corned Beef
Andy Warhol
Streaming Media
Nightlife
Tokyo

Hey! I'm back on LJ after being away for a few years. Made a new journal and would like to make some new friends here. I'm 30 years old and I'm living in Ohio, USA. I'm originally from NY but I moved here about 4 years ago. I'm in a happy yet weird stage of my life where I'm still trying to figure things out. I have occasional bouts of anxiety and depression but I don't always let it consume me. I love movies (all kinds), taking photos, nature, art, crafts, baking, cutesy stuff, books, music, PC games, too many TV shows and biking. I'm not completely negative but I'm also not all sunshine & rainbows. Happy medium I guess? I like to share my random thoughts, memories, things that are bothering me, and stuff I'm interested in. I'm not really picky about LJ friends, I'm open to all kinds. I like getting to know someone but I don't get annoyed if my LJ friends aren't commenting consistently.

I'll share some of my interests more in depth:
Movies: Wes Anderson, Ghibli films, Big Fish, American Beauty, City of God, Her, Closer, The Fall, Under the Skin
TV Shows: Lost, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, The Fall, Orphan Black, True Detective
Music: Florence + the Machine, St. Vincent, Bonobo, Warpaint, M83, Bon Iver, Thievery Corporation, Arcade Fire, Grimes, Passion Pit
Games: Life is Strange, The Sims, Left 4 Dead, The Secret World

Hey LJ, I am looking for new friends. Friends at all really I currently have none. I'm an avid reader/commenter, I don't update that much but I've promised to change that! I really love reading peoples lives, adventures, and the just day to day.
I use to lj alot a long time ago, found myself on other sites and always coming back here.
meandspidey
Me and my main man Spidey. No big deal.

I am a 27 year old Chicago transplant living in RURAL Tennessee.My name is Maggie. I have a nine year old son Eli (who is my whole world!) and boyfriend Corey (5 years together). We have a cat and a dog. This is the basis of my life, and I love them all. I recently went ape shit and quit my job of 3 years in management. I was working 65+ hours and was miserable. I have been unemployed since February first, and will start a new one March 13th. I use to average 3-5 hours of sleep a day and go and go on coffee. Now I'm suffering from a bout of insomnia! I am very domestic and sometimes a bit strange. I am slightly type a. Looking forward to some new chapters, losing weight, and my garden this summer. I can't wait for winter to go so spring can blossom and I go creek stomping and camping!


About me:
I love to cook it's a passion and a hobby. I always look at recipes as adventures. My house loves to eat and I love to feed them. (please let me note my love for coffee... it's my blood type.)

Music is my other passion. I love it in all forms. I love collecting vinyl and seeing shows live. I live right in between Memphis and Nashville and visit Chicago about 6 times a year. I see QUITE a few bands. I don't like just a specific I have a wide range. Current rotation: Hurray for the Riff Raff Band, Shovels & Rope, Alabama Shakes, Modest Mouse (touring again!) and the Deslondes.

My friends and family: I'm a mother hen. Any event, any task, phone call, problem, I'm your girl. Once in a while it gets overwhelming...but the end of the day I wouldn't have it any other way.

Traveling: We try really hard to utilize the states and cities around us. We go on a couple vacations a week. We also go to Memphis, Nashville, and Chicago all through the year. This means food, sports events, local breweries, thrift stores, and good times. I love camping, hiking, finding creeks, and seeing the Tennessee woodlands.

I also am an avid gardener, make-up consumer by the ton, and book collector. My dream is to own a small scale farm, run a record store, and see the world.

My journal is filled with day to day happenings, my son, cat, and dog. And of course me.

Be my friend!

I’m a software and web developer. That sounds like an introduction at an addiction clinic – and perhaps it is in a way – if addictions to staring at lines of misbehaving code, and thumping the desk a lot are an addiction. I’m also a father to three adopted girls, a husband, staff for three cats, and feeder of two goldfish that we won at the funfair last year. The fishes names are Wonderwoman and Voldemort. Go figure. I also ride a mountain bike everywhere rather than drive a car.

I have been writing a blog for years - I suppose in some ways I am a “blogger of the old world”, from a time when people wrote about their daily lives – before niche bloggers polluted the web with marketing driven drivel. Yes, I have got a chip on my shoulder about that.

I have a homepage on the net with a "proper" blog, and that tends to be the place I write anything of consequence (if you can call it that), but sometimes I feel the need to vent - to escape from "being me" for a while. I'm hoping LiveJournal will become that place - a "back channel", filled with random musings.

As well as the various blogs, I sometimes write in a paper journal. I have carried it around for several years now, and write a page when the mood strikes – either that, or when my frustration with life the universe and everything virtually demands it. I learned a long time ago to censor what I write about online, so the paper journal occasionally gets the rants, character assassinations, and “foaming invective” that I would never dare publish online.

I guess LiveJournal is an escape really. An escape from the mundane world I usually inhabit, and one of the few places where everything is about “me”. Much of the rest of my life is dictated by expectation and obligation – LiveJournal provides a place to visit free of such shackles, if only for a few minutes each day.

I generally write about daily life – the mundane stuff that is often ignored, or forgotten. It sometimes helps to empty my head into the keyboard. Finding time to do so is often a challenge, but it somehow works itself out.

I would love to connect with like minded people telling their story – who I might read, and get to know a little. The internet can seem immense, chaotic, and overwhelming - and it can also feel very lonely. If I can connect with just a few people similar to myself – sharing their story for no particular reason, I would be happy.

Im 25, jobless, single, and a student (taking a break from school). Still trying to figure out what i want to do with my life. Currently ive been getting back into reading books. Im on a mission to read 15 to 25 books this year.

if any of this interest you than add me. My life is pretty boring at the moment but i do try to update and comment regularly

LONELY SAHM
ladilonely
Well Im a mother of 4, one on the way, and a stepmom of 2. Ive been married for 4 years. Im a stay at home mom(SAHM). We just moved to Georgia, I have limited family here so that why Im lonely. My husband is rarely home, so Im here with children all day and getting fed up. I join LJ for a place to vent, make friends(no rules), and keep track of my moods because I battle with depression and other issues. Idk if all make one want to add me as friend but its the truth. There is more to me but this what I have swirling around in my paranoid head.

Becoming active on LJ again
weekendromance

I’ve began journaling again with the goal to be more myself and open. For that reason a completely private journal isn’t as satisfying, but my previous friends seem to be inactive.

I’ve had LJ for over 10 years now, but I made past posts private.I’m 24 years old,  a black woman, I have ADD, and a bit of social anxiety. The social anxiety developed during my college years, and I’m forcing myself into social interactions quickly to combat it. I recently became an actuary, but I actually hate it, so I’m quitting my job within the next month and traveling around Europe. I’ll be re-locating to Chicago, so my blog will be heavily dedicated to all of this happening.

I’m ultimately trying to better myself and learning how to do the things how I want because I got sick of always longing for something due to fake rules I created for myself.

I will probably update frequently, but don’t expect everyone to always comment. I’ll probably indulge in LJ weekly with comments on my friend’s list, I try to make sure it has substance instead of commenting to be seen as active.



Hello!
Ethan
method_acting
Just cleaned up the friends list and would love new friends!

I'm Heather, soon to be 35 in April. I'm a SAHM of a little 2 year old baby boy, happily married, 3 older small dogs and 8 hens, 2 roosters!

I write a lot about son of course, my current weight loss journey, my mental illness (which is fine ATM), ambien adventures, and other bits and bobs.

I love to read and watch tv when mini me isn't demanding Curious George or Bubble Guppies.

I'm very opened minded and non judgemental, however, I don't want to read a lot of religious or political posts, or fan Fiction. Also if you write book on every entry, I probably won't read it ;(

I try to form relationships and if we don't mesh there is no point right?

But if you think we would hit it off, add me!!

I also have a sexy filter, it's not very bad but just be warned!

Hi! My names Christina, I'm 26 years old, originally from Long Island New York living in San Diego California. I'm recently getting back into journaling and am looking for new friends with an unbiased opinion. I talk a lot about relationships and their impact on my life, as that seems to be my biggest dilemma right now.

I like Drake, The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey, and Khloe Kardashian. I enjoy fashion, shopping, coffee, and makeup. I'm a Disney enthusiast and love anything nautical; anchors are my spirit symbol.

If interested, comment on my friends only post.

A lot of things have changed about me...
cheeky smiley takeru <3
visualkeilover
I also can't remember when my last entry was... please don't hit me. ;o;

Well anyway, my name is Kimi. I was born on October 3rd 1988, so that makes me 26 as of right now. However, I hardly act my age at all. I am diagnosed with a mild to moderate form of autism. I also have anxiety and ADHD as well as some learning and developmental delays. I love being myself, and I can also be very loud too. One thing you should know about me is that I am a HUGE fangirl as well. I mean, I will literally spazz out over my fangirl crushes in my LJ to the point where I'm screaming about it. Just a warning for you.

If there's anyone I love more than life itself though. It's Takeru from SuG. The reason why is because he has depersonalization disorder, arrhythmia and panic attacks, yet he's one of the most strongest, most confident and positive people you could ever hope to involve yourself with. That's what makes him my hero. No matter what he's going through or dealing with, he remains strong and confident through it all. He also loves to stand out, and he owns and designs his own fashion line as well. He's the vocalist for SuG and let me tell you... I could go on forever about how fricken amazing this guy is... but that would take all day. XD Anyway, Takeru makes me want to be a better person. I want to be like him because someday, I will be able to overcome my severe anxiety and social boundaries. I'm doing this because well... if he can overcome having what he has, then that means so can I. <3

Aside from that, I love visual kei. For those that don't know what this is... it's a style where Japanese guys in bands dress up in eccentric stage clothes and wear a ton of make up. I do find these kind of thing attractive. Yes, they are dudes. Most Japanese guys who dress this way are all dudes, but they have a very androgynous appearance because of it. This causes a lot of people to mistake them for being women. Please don't do this. Nothing pisses me off more than hearing "I swear I thought that was a girl" or anything along those lines.

Most of the music I listen to is power metal/alt metal/heavy metal. However, when it comes to visual kei... I can listen to just about anything. The only thing I can't stand is anything rap, hip-hop or pure screamo. Some of my other favorite bands besides SuG are the GazettE, Sadie, Lycaon, D, Alice Nine, SCREW and many more. Also, if you are one of those fangirls who treat them like gods or worships them... don't add me. I don't mind being apart of the fandom, but I will not tolerate anyone who doesn't realize that they are also human beings like everyone else.

I am also a Whovian. However, I haven't been able to watch it as of late. My DVR screwed up on Twelve's episodes, and I lost all track of where I was. My favorite doctors are Ten, Eleven and Twelve though. I also own their sonic screwdrivers as well as an talking Eleven plush too. I even have a Tardis plush keychain that makes the whooshing sound.

Let's see... um, I love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. However, I don't consider myself a brony/pegasister. I have no shame in liking the show, but I prefer not to bother myself with those silly labels. I pretty much adore all of the mane six too, but if I had to choose just one... it would be Fluttershy. The reason is because she is very shy like me. We both have a hard time expressing ourselves. I just feel like I can relate to her.

I am also a collector of plushies/stuffed animals. I sleep with certian ones every night. As of right now, and probably forever, my current favorite plushie is a small duck plush named my Pikachu plush. I associated him with Takeru from SuG for many reasons. >////< I also have a huge collection of anime plushies too. I love my plushies because they are always there when I need a hug, cheering up or simply just keeping me calm.

Generally, I am a very nice person. I'm very friendly and will be friends with just about anyone. I don't care if you are disabled, have a certian religion, transgender, lesbian, gay... whatever. It doesn't matter to me at all. So long as you are nice about it and don't rub it in my face. I can also be very shy at times as well. Also, I don't usually like to post on other people's journals. The reason for this is due to my special needs. I don't always know what to say, and it often makes me rather uncomfortable to read other people's journals as well. Please don't take any offense to this though. :x

As for my journal, it is and always has been friends only. What you will see in my journal may or may not be appropriate for everyone. I tend to curse a lot, talk in all caps and consider myself to be absolutely uncensored. I don't mind being myself at all anymore. I'd rather be myself than go through a state of severe depression from being someone I'm not. Also, don't judge me by the way I type. I'm actually a very fun and sweet person once you get to know me!

I just had to do it
Mmmm yum
thegirlingray
By no means is this my very first time here. I took a few years off and then I couldn't remember my old account name or password.. so I made a new one.

I think that this one is going to be more fitting to what I have grown into. I'm also going to try to keep up with it.

So let me tell you a little about myself. I love watching horror movies and I love picking them apart and talking about them to people. I love drawing and I'm currently doing fractals and learning 3D art.

The only fandom right now that I am really big into is Ghostbusters. Yeah, I know it is an old fandom, but I don't care. I have always loved it and I do believe that I will always love it. There are so many things about the fandom that I love. And no, it is not because I have a major crush on Egon/Harold. Well, ok, that is one of the reasons. There are several others.

I love table top games. I usually go out every Monday night to our local comic book shop and play table top games with a bunch of my friends. We play whatever the game host brings with them. Some of the games we have played in the past range from Zombie Dice to Smallworld. Sometimes the games are super simple and fun and sometimes they take a good deal of strategy. I love either one.

So yeah, that is basically all there is to know about me. I'm a nerdy female that loves horror, Ghostbusters, art, science, and tabletop games. What more could you ask for? Hehehe.

Hey there! The name is Marlana. A lot of my friends seem to have disappeared so I'm looking to make new ones. I was born 30 years ago in the Great Lakes state (Michigan, if you're terrible with nicknames). I'm a retail slave (for now), and part time college student (Marketing is my major). I'm in a long-term relationship, and expecting my first child in August.

My interests are varied, but here are a few; Music (most any genre you can think of - but fave artists/bands are All Time Low, The Script, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, yada yada etc..). Baseball (Detroit Tigers occupy my spring/summers when I'm not at work, also like to catch an occasional Chicago Cubs game on tv), Reading, Daydreaming, Shopping, getting absorbed with an episode of Grey's Anatomy or Blue Bloods (I'm currently mourning the cancellation of Red Band Society), I like travelling as well, though I don't get to do it very often.

My Dad died back in October of early onset Alzheimer's Disease, and his death is still something I'm dealing with. And this pregnancy, was pretty unexpected. So, two big things I'm working with in life.

Basically I'm looking to get to know some new people. I don't expect you to comment on every entry, but it would be nice to hear from you every few entries or so. I'll do the same for you. I couldn't care less about your gender, sexual orientation, religion, or anything like that. I just ask that you be somewhere around 25-35. I want to relate to you, and too much of an age gap might get in the way of that.

Anyway, I'd love to get to know you. Let me know you're adding me either on here, or on my "friends only" entry. :-)

For those of you who like to put a face to a name...

Yeah...I look like I'm 15. Hah

I am fifteen years old and live in Pennsylvania, I have had no friends at all for about a year, my previous friends were very bad, immature and had nothing in common with me, they were not what I considered friends so I just cut them out of my life. I am on this website to try to find a friend who is mature and has the same interests as me, I have realized in my life that I need a friend, I have no one to talk to or share my thoughts with, so if you have any common interests with me then please notify me.

I am a homeschool student taking very challenging courses and I will be going to a community college this September. Some of my courses are; English 4, Economics, Trigonometry/ Pre-Caclculus, Thermodynamic/Biologic Chemistry/ astronomy, and Videogame Design. I am an introvert and have social anxiety. I have some immense obsessive compulsions resembling the mental condition "OCD" (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), but I am gradually progressing through it with self teaching. What my whole life has and does consist of is enormous amounts of time reading sword and sorcery books such as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Forgotten Realms series, The Witcher, The Lord of The Rings and much much more. I also watch tons of anime including Dragon Ball Z (DBZ), Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail. And a gigantic ton of videogames, my favorite and my most played genres of videogames are role-playing games (RPGs), survival horror games, strategy games and 2-D platform games. Some of my favorite and most played videogames are Diablo II, Final Fantasy V, Dragon Age Origins, Sonic The Hedgehog 3, and Dark Souls.

Hi-- I'm not new to LJ, but I've very recently decided to start over, as I realised I wasn't using my journal in a way that was beneficial to me. I want to use this account as a diary, properly: a place to post my thoughts and feelings, rather than all the boring details about day-to-day life. If you're interested in being along for the ride, please comment on my friends only post.

A little about me:
I'm not comfortable listing all my diagnoses in such a public place, but I'm a young girl (though 18+, if that's important to you) living with several mental illnesses. My perception of reality is not always what it "should" be, and so-- though I never lie-- you should know that I tend to speak in metaphors when I'm having difficulty communicating. I'm queer, pagan, and actively working to improve myself every day. Though I value my privacy a great deal (meaning you're not likely to see what I look like or be linked to my other social networking accounts), I crave deep, personal connections and I love learning about people from all walks of life.

Don't add me if you're not social justice friendly or if you use your journal for fandom things (obviously it's very okay if you do sometimes, I'm just quite the opposite so if it's the bulk of your posts, that's a dealbreaker). I'm much more comfortable with women than men, but if we seem to have a lot in common, it doesn't much matter.

Hello! I am not new to LJ but I do have very few friends on here. So I am looking for some!

I am a Licensed Nurse studying to become a Registered Nurse (graduate in May, hopefully). I am 23 years old, dating a wonderful guy and have two silly kitties that stay over at his house.

I am mostly on LJ to read fanfic so here are my fandoms: Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Supernatural, Harry Potter, The Hobbit (film), LOTR (films)

I do write over at AO3 as well under the same handle (guardiancastiel).

I love to read, write and crochet!

I do like to comment on friends journal's so if you do add me you'll probably see me pop in a lot!

perfecttdrug

My name is Jay. I'm female. I'm 28 and I'm Australian.

Where should I begin? I guess it all started on the 2nd of August, 1986 at 7:10am, when I was born - One day after my fathers most precious and loved day - "The Horse's Birthday", as it happened, my birthday is the only one out of my siblings and I that have a yearly phone call from my father on my birthday - The horses, his passion - Helping him to remember.

I am an average height and average weight Leo. I enjoy writing, but I'm not good with describing things in a beautiful way. If I see a blue sky, I say it's a blue sky. The brown chair is brown and all of that. I write how I talk and I write about what I see.

I love to dance. I'm not good at it, but I like doing it. Whenever and wherever. If a good song comes on, I'll throw everything down and start dancing. Much to the dismay of my teenage nieces. I'm the inappropriate aunty.

I LOVE Supernatural, Vikings, Justified, The Divide.

I find this guy who regularly goes into the alcohol shop next door to where I work, mildly attractive (He just walked by and made me think of him).

Most of my entries are just a few lines that are random brain farts. Or those little quotes on photo's. Or photo's of stuff I've done with a little blurb.

If you'd like to be friends. Comment here or on my friends only post. I'll add you.


Hello! Looking for a few good friends! :)

Hello all! My name is Lindsay and I am not new to Live Journal. I've been on and off here for a number of years and this is my sixth journal (I think.) I am currently looking for some new people to get to know as getting reacquainted with some of my old friends on here.

For starters I am 31 years old and live in Nebraska. I am not married nor do I have kids. I currently work in retail and have been for quite a number of years. I LOVE to read as reading and books make my happy. So if you are a lover of books you would be great game for a friendship! I also like to watch TV but not as much as read! I'm pretty old school when it comes to TV as some of my favorite shows are Roseanne, Full House, Home Improvement and Unsolved Mysteries. Although I like some of the newer shows on TLC which are Kate Plus 8 and My Big Fat Fabulous Life (can't wait till they come back this summer!)

I am a total news junkie and follow the news daily! My main news channel is CNN which I have my TV tuned to most of the time since I don't usually watch regular modern TV.

Besides reading some of my other loves are blogging and exercising. Although I would prefer to exercise outside you can't do much of that during the cold winter months.

I also LOVE music. Some of my favorite singers are Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Fiona Apple, Kate Nash etc. (there is too many to name) and YES, in case you are wondering I ONLY listen to girl singers.

In my journal I write A LOT about my life and my family. I'm currently going through something really shocking that I recently found out about and I find out that my journal is therapeutic to me not only writing in it but reading the comments of support from people on here. Some of the friends I've had on here I've known since my very first journal. That's been quite a long time.

So, add me if you think we would get along okay or have some common interests! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks! :)

Hi! My name is Erin. I'm turning 23 on Tuesday. I've been happily married to my best friend (Kevin) a year in April, we met online a little over 3 years ago. I just graduated cosmetology school on Friday. I'm big into makeup and nails, as well as photography. My husband and I have two cats who we adore named Reggie and Apollo, but no kids for a few years. I do love kids though so I don't mind friends who have them!!!

I honestly don't have tons of drama in my life or anything like that. My husband and I are happy together so you won't see much in the way of major relationship drama, just normal stuff. I do have very severe anxiety and depression which is a daily battle, and I do write about it occasionally but not every time. I'm really not picky about who adds me, but just so you know I'm going to start posting photos more frequently because I just got a new camera. So yeah! I'm looking for people that I can really connect with and befriend. I don't need people who comment on everything (I sure as hell don't). Just leave a comment here if you'd like to be friends and I'll add you! :)

Hello :3
FFXIII - Serah
27needles
Hello there :3. I'm Lou, 25 year old LJ-veteran from the UK. It always seems to be an uphill battle to keep an active circles of friends on here in recent times, but I've made some amazing friends here and I'd love to make some more.

I studied Forensic Chemistry at Uni, and am now working as an Analytical Chemist.

I'm a music junkie, I love taking gig photos and have even had the chance to do some cool interview work a few times. My main genres of choice are classic rock, glam rock and metal, but I'm partial to a little bit of almost everything and love getting recommendations from people. When I can, I try to go to as many live shows as possible, and I'm a big fan of random, spontaneous adventures.

I also play a lot of video games. Mostly RPGs (big Final Fantasy and Dragon Age fan!) but I'll play basically anything that gets my attention.

My life just got turned on it's head a bit recently, so I'm hoping the next couple of years will be more of a fun adventure that I'm used to.

I like to put faces to names when I'm making friends here, so this is me:

Excuse the potato quality

And you know, I come with the full set of twentysomething LJ credentials; Cat lover, Coffee Addicted, Night Owl, Bookworm. Other things I love include Collecting vinyl records, procrastinating in bookshops, sushi, things that smell like cinnamon, pizza, astronomy, rum, night drives, late mornings, traveling, Halloween, tattoos, zebra print, comedy, drawing, accents and making ridiculous and silly plans for the future.

My journal is mostly a day to day thing, with the occasional smattering of music reviews. As a friend, I prefer to get to know people, to actually talk and make an effort. I don't have a better "about me" post hidden up my sleeve, since I'm awful at these things, but if there is anything else at all that you'd like to know, feel free to ask :3.

I look forward to getting to know some of you! :)

hi!
i'm not too new to lj, but that's another story, aha.

i'm lucie. i'm 22, and i'm from the land down under (opens in a new window :)

music; a bit of everything!

tv shows; law and order svu, the blacklist, the big bang theory, the 100, 2 broke girls, 16 and pregnant, pretty little liars, eye candy, bobs burgers, being mary-jane, bates motel, botched, catfish, dexter, girlcode, gold coast cops, highway patrol, last man standing, married at first sight, orange is the new black, masterchef, stalker, sex and the city, the force, the real housewives of melbourne, the strain, under the dome, true tori, etc.

interests; penpals, writing, reading, designing dresses, watching tv shows, going on drives, cooking/baking, playing video games, browsing tumblr, chatting with friends (anyone, really, not too phased :), shopping is always a goodie..

But in all seriousness, I'm really not a bad kid. I'm quite odd, and usually that's a bit interesting slightly...maybe?
Shoot me a message/comment/whatever hahaha.

:)

Hoi! :3
cockatiel, Loki

After contemplating it for some time (the internet is a scary place, y'know), I decided I'd make a post here to meet some more of you lovely people.

I'm 'birdcactus,' a 22 year old from that delightful oversized island, Australia. Or 'Straya, whichever you prefer. I'm a first year university student beginning my Bachelor of Science. I haven't decided on a major yet but I'm thinking zoology and/or botany (any opinions on either?) Like many of you, I'm an animal person and am lucky to have an adorable cockatiel, little old dog and a roly-poly horse. I enjoy things such as video games (RPGs mostly), books on most topics, gardening, action movies, loud music of any genre, humor (particularly puns), trivia games, art and being jealous of people with artistic skills, museums, history and cooking cakes/sweets. I suppose I'd consider myself an apathetic atheist and I like to talk to people of all backgrounds and beliefs. No discrimination here!

Because I don't really know what else to add, here's some fun (dull) trivia about me!
My favourite animals are birds (parrots <3) and elephants.
I like spiders but will climb the walls to escape roaches.
I'm a Libra, yay October!
I'm currently playing Rune Factory 4, Fire Emblem Awakening and Pokemon Omega Ruby.
I am petrified of needles (hypodermic) and can't even stand to look at them. Perhaps this is linked to having a mother that's a nurse? xD
I have a Diploma in Conservation & Land Management which roughly translates to, "I'm qualified to boss some people around to save the environment."

I typically post 2-3 times a week so you won't get swamped by posts from me. My posts normally involve everyday life, from animals, games, movies, studying, stuff I find cool/interesting, etc. If you're interested, add me or leave a comment! :D

Hello!
meowmensteen
Hello, I'm whoring myself out in this community again. I love reading my friends page, and would like more people to read about. I've followed several people for many years, and am pretty attached to keeping up on them. It's cool watching people grow and change here. I got my first LJ in 2002 at the tender age of 21, and have been pretty active since then. I was makemeacake then punky_pen, then sage_brush and now have settled on meowmensteen, a few people have even followed me through all those name changes.

I guess I'm looking for people who post here regularly, and share mostly about themselves and their daily lives. I also like reading more philosophical posts too. I don't think there's anything wrong with being too politically correct though. I have no patience for people who indulge in judging people based on culture, race, or sexuality.

I'm a pretty boring person, but I try my best to make it sound interesting. My journal is mostly about these things:

-My work as an industrial baker.
-Me learning the ropes of photography. I use a Nikon D3100 DSLR. I post a picture (almost) every day at 365project.org, and usually share the pictures in my journal. I've very amateur, but I have a lot of fun, and it gets me out of the house.
-As of April 8th, I will officially be the mother of a teenager. Holy shit. I write about motherhood, and my relationship with my daughter, but at the same time, try to keep her life private...she can mess up her own reputation on the internet. No need for me to start that.
-Weird dreams I have. I love it when people make their own Freudian interpretation of them.
-My ability to get along with other people. Either I have a hard time getting along with people, or life has thrown some very difficult people in my life. It's probably a bit of both.
-I have a significant other, but like my daughter, I respect his privacy and don't write too much about him here.
-Adventures, city hikes mostly. I live in a very cool place, Seattle, Washington. On weekends I often like to take my daughter with me on beach hikes, and through different neighborhoods of the city. I like to post pictures of these adventures and write a bit about new discoveries I've made in this city I've lived in my whole life.
-Introspective thoughts on life. I was raised pretty religious, but in a hippie Jesus and lentil soup kind of way, with tinges of metaphysics and hereditary mythology. I tend to sway back and forth between wanting to be mystified by the universe, and taking comfort concrete reality. I tend to fall on the concrete reality side more often, but I've learned over the years that a lot of the ideas from religions and mysticism have practical applications in reality. Not always though. For instance, karma is a very practical idea...to quote myself pretening to be a victorian gentleman: If the bastard deserves it, he will get it.
-I don't write about (or watch for that matter) television much, but I have been getting into classic literature. I try my best to read it, but mostly just listen to audio books when I'm at work.
-I write about music too, but for the most part it seems my musical taste is all my own, and I can accept that most people ignore my music posts.
-I'm a weirdo. I get attached to inatamate objects and random animals I encounter though out my daily life. My icon is of Judas the Crow. He's got a gimpy wing, but so far has survived the mild Seattle winter.

Here I am. This is a recent selfie I took showing off my 90's Seattle get up. Complete with flannel shirt and Doc Martins. Selfies are not easy for me to do. Especially if I'm not holding the camera.
[picture here...]
That is my heavenly halo. I wear it off to the side, like my grandmother taught me to wear hats.


I could seriously keep on writing here (I have the afternoon off and a full cup of coffee) but I probably should shut up. I'm sure there's at least few people left on LJ that I might enjoy being friends with. Also, don't be shy if you already kind of know me from another community.

Hello!
pinkpolka5
So I've been away from lj for a very long time. Life got in the way and we'll mow here I am. I'm trying to stay as anonymous as possible so that I can say and do as I please without family and friends being all up on my business. I'm 30 something, female, married but no kids. I have a puggle who is my world even though she's drives me bat shit crazy. I have an OK job...it pays the bills. I miss my home like crazy(I moved to my current location for my husband). Anyway... Not sure what else to say. Wanna be friends? If ya do, cool! If not that's cool too. Add me and comment!

It's about time I do this again, I s'pose

Hey there.  I've had this particular journal since 2008 with no intention of leaving it.  My name is Kristy.  I'm 37, happily married for 19 years in May, mother to two great boys and we live in Alabama, US.   That covers the boring old statistics about myself.

Here's what I spend my time doing: reading, preparing to go to school online, knitting, sewing, home schooling my kiddos, cleaning up after everyone else in this house, trying out recipes, writing on a manuscript I hope to get published some day, playing with my parakeet, gaming, walking, trying to get back into yoga, fangirling over archaeology or science news and occasionally watching netflix/hulu.

I am A-Okay with adding people from my friends list here on other sites, such as Facebook, but it's certainly not a requirement.   I always meet great people through here, so I'm not really paranoid---unless you are a stalker.  Are you a stalker?

I'm also (by way of a disclaimer) pagan, bisexual, introverted, ridiculously silly at times, addicted to coffee and I get anxious over the stupidest things.

I don't care what political leaning you have, or what religion you do or do not follow.  I'm open-minded and accepting until you show me that you are not, then we'll part ways.

Soooo...a little about myself I guess. I am a CVT (certified veterinary technician) so I will rant about animals and client stuff, a lot. I will also post random things that my boyfriend and I play around with. I enjoy foreign food, horror movies, foreign films (subs all the way), drawing anime, quoting movies and tv shows, caring for animals outside of my regular job-because 40 hours a week isn't enough, and I love to listen and help people.

I'd love to have more friends to read their enteries so they feel like their opinions and thoughts are validated and heard. I enjoy the variety of life that I do not get to experience in the upper Midwest. I have a very open mind and would love to expand in any way possible =^.^=

Will you be my friend?

Hi There!

Hello everyone! My name is Lindsay, I am 29 and currently living in Saitama, Japan (close to Tokyo). Though I am planning a move back to Nova Scotia, Canada in December! I am married to my Japanese husband. We got married in June, and have been together for almost 5 years now. I am now 24 weeks pregnant with our first child June 15th, and it is pretty exciting...well mostly exciting, giving birth in Japan is becoming more and more complicated which all their strange rules...

Anyway, I am currently still working, teaching children ages 1-11 and will be finished by May. I like to talk about my husband of course, being from different cultures it can be rough at times, but I do love that guy. I also talk about my pregnancy, work, the in-law which we live with at the moment, my family, and friends. I post about fashion, makeup, and a bunch of stuff, when I have my baby I will be getting back into dieting, I had lost a lot of weight before our wedding and plan to get it back off, I like to jog and do bodybuilding. I love photography, making jewelry (haven't had time lately), nails, shopping, I am a bagaholic! I post tons of pictures of food and snacks I find here in Japan too.

Basically I am looking for a few new friends who are interested/have/want children, or are going to be soon. Of course, any other friends would be wonderful! I am a super easy going person.
