LiveJournal is getting quieter and quieter and that makes me incredibly sad. Since my active friends have become steadily fewer over the past few months, I thought maybe it’s time to reach out for some new ones. I have my quiet periods, too, but my life is calmer now and allows more time for me to write without sacrificing sleep to do so.
I am 29 this month, married, and childfree. We recently moved from Florida to Texas where we know absolutely no one, but I don’t really see that as a problem since we didn’t exactly leave a large friend base behind. I’m still looking for a job and will be taking my last class to complete my bachelor’s degree this fall. Since I have no friends, I’m not working, and I’m not even in school, my life is pretty focused around trying to find a job and lose weight at the moment so those are the dominant topics of my journal.
About My Journal:
I tag my entries pretty meticulously and used to have a thing for enigmatic subject lines, but now I tend to take a more useful approach to titling my entries most of the time. Sometimes I write multiple times a week, sometimes just once, and sometimes I go quiet for two weeks or so if I’m busy, but I still read every day even if I’m not writing. I’m busy a lot less now so I write a lot more, though.
As for common topics, you can expect a lot about:
- My weight loss journey (and associated frustrations)
- My job hunt (and associated frustrations)
- My relationship (and its challenges)
- My desire for a house like yesterday
- My general daily life (what I did recently or want to do soon, memories, feelings)
When I’m back in school and working again, you can expect a good amount of ranting about both.
I’m open to friends of all ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, belief systems, and life stages. I’d prefer friends whose entries are more text than pictures and who write more about personal things than about TV shows, music, or politics. I can’t handle friends whose entries read like MySpace posts from the 2000’s (mixed upper/lower case words, drawn out vowels, bizarre abbreviations, etc).
If you do want to be friends, please comment here or on my Friends Only sticky post so I know to add you back as almost all my entries are Friends Only.
