i'm 31. in a relationship. grew up speaking spanish. enjoy fiction books. love coffee. prefer wearing glasses over contacts. grew up in texas. watch stuff mainly on netflix. like coca cola. the youngest of my siblings. enjoy phone calls and texting. enjoy dancing. have a thing for red hair. love the zoo. prefer my hair short. like to swear. enjoy bowling improperly.
^ copied that from my bio on here and now to figure out what else i might be able to share
just joined livejournal and i’ve been posting everyday, but that could change. what i feel i’d be better at is making comments on other peoples posts. so if you can deal with that. then fantastic.
i’m engaged as of june.
i grew up speaking spanish, but not perfection at it either. most would say that even so i speak it really well. i can read it pretty good, but writing is a no go.
my top shows are bones and doctor who, but i enjoy many and i’m currently watching several.
i like going to different parks to walk around and enjoy the scenery. sometimes my dog being along for the walk is another perk.
i have two pets. one is a dog, as mentioned, and another is a cat. both are outside little critters. my cat is an oldie, but goodie. my dog is fairly young still.
for years i’ve preferred my hair short, but for the past year i’ve sort of just letting it grow as it may. it helps that i’m not too big on going to get my hair cut.
right now i’m starting a new book. it came as part of a two in one book. it’s a romantic comedy type which is my kind of read.
i’m currently unemployed trying to be employed.
i have a love of coffee and i like coca cola, but water i drink most as i limit my intake on the other two.
i like taking photos here and there at random with my little digi that i carry around in my purse. i decided one day that if i ever feel the need or desire to take a shot at random i’d need more than just my cells cam. so now it’s always on me. one day, though, i’d like to really get a hang of my fiancees nifteh cam. it’s an older model as he got it some years ago, but it still takes some great shots.
I thought I’d post here again as I’ve had a fair bit of success in making new friends on here. I’m Andrew, I’m 30, I’m a law librarian and I live in Leeds, UK. I live with my husband of ten years and I’m very happy with my life! I’ve had this same journal for 11 years now which is quite strange to think about. I find it really interesting that when I first started my LJ all of my friends were either people I knew in real life or UK people, now my list is nearly all people from other countries and I like that a lot.
My journal tends to be about stuff I’ve been up to. I live in the city centre and I love where I live so I mention Leeds quite a bit. I talk about films I’ve seen, plays and shows I’ve been to (which tends to be a fair few!), computer games I’m playing (old and new), books, music I’m listening to (generally scandipop nowadays but offbeat pop in general I suppose), museums I’ve been to, just my day to day life really. I tend to post maybe 2-3 times a week, something like that. I don’t comment on everyone’s posts and I wouldn’t expect you to with me either but I do read all of my friends list and comment when I have something to say. I guess I’m looking for the same thing in return.
I love to travel as well so I do picture posts and write-ups from that when it happens. My travel is mostly Europe based. I’ve been to Berlin and Dublin this year and I’m going to tour 6 countries in Northern Europe next year too. I’ve also been coast to coast across America and I’ve just come back from Disney World Florida, which I’ve yet to write up. You have been warned!
I’ll generally add anyone as long as they’re nice which kind of goes without saying. I’m not really into fanfic though or people who just post only pics. I like the writing that goes with them too! Do feel free to comment on this post if you think we’d get on and I’ll add you.
I didn’t know what pic to post to end with so I’ve gone with me in a library. Because if you've got a reputation you might as well flaunt it right?
I posted here about a year ago and got to know a couple of lovely people, but now I'm back with a vengeance and I'd really love to make new friends!
So, a little about me. I'm in my mid-twenties and I live in the UK, so I'm a born and bred Brit. I currently work full time in a job I neither love nor hate (it's a bit of both sometimes!), and I live with my partner of two years. I don't get out all that much, which you'd think would mean I would be on livejournal every day, but sadly I just don't have time for that sometimes... because I'm too busy playing video games, or Magic the Gathering, or making dinner, or sleeping!
Sometimes I think I'm a writer but other times I think I'd have more luck going to stick my head in a hole and expecting a novel to come out a year later. I enjoy simple playing about with css (see my journal!), chatting with friends online, emptying my thoughts into a cup of tea, and cats. I don't have any cats, but one day, I will have one.
Some things I pretend not to like but secretly enjoy are politics, cooking and cleaning (yes really!!).
I ride a 125cc scooter and take way too many pictures on Instagram, but only when I remember that it exists.
From my journal you can expect random updates from my life, hopefully reasonably frequent but not enough to be spammy :) I'll be participating in NaNoWriMo this year so I'm looking to connect with people over writing, tea, a similar sense of humour, time spent on the deeper thoughts of life, and things like that.
There's a whole wealth of other stuff, I'm sure, but if you're at all interested in being my friend and I haven't totally talked your ear off, please come and find me at cenowar, or in the comments here, and I will be happy to make your acquaintance.
My names Jade, I'm 26 (as of one day ago) I reside currently in the UK. I play momma to two beautiful cats which I hand reared from being two weeks old.
* My journal will mostly contain the usual life updates, my cats, my life, work.
* There will be some darker entries such as my moms deteriorating mental state.
* The occasional rant, as the majority of us do on here!
A7X, Ed Sheeran, Metallica, The Eagles, Phil Collins - and many more my varied music taste is about as nuts as me.
Id really like some new friends to prove to me that this site really isn't dead Ive used LJ for over 10 years and lately it seems to really be lacking in any sort of activity.
Feel free to add me, just comment and let me know :)
I'm terrible at these things, but doesn't everybody say that?
My name is Ashie, I'm 26,married, and I live in Minnesota. Ya sure, you betcha!
I've been on LJ for at least 10 years, under a million different names, LJ has always been a pretty big part of my life. My posting habits wax and wane, but with the new and improved app, I hope to become more consistent, as I always feel much better when I am.
I have a connective tissue disorder called Marfan Syndrome, and it and correlating problems come up in my posts from time to time, but my journal doesn't revolve around it.
I post a lot of my craft stuff, I knit and crochet and I'm trying to make a living out of it, it's a slow bit steady process, and it grows little by little each week.
I talk about the most important people in my life, my husband, my friends, and my family. I post about my struggles with finances, my struggle with figuring out my mental health status and random, every day stuff.
I don't post everyday, Sometimes I don't post every week, but hey, sometimes you just don't have the energy, right?
My husband and I own two (2)! hearses, i talk about them from time to time (especially this time of year) and I love, love, LOVE Halloween.( Read more…Collapse )
Reading, writing, crafting, knitting, crochet photography, hearses, Halloween, horror, music, comedy, cars
Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, Davd Bowie KMFDM, Tool, Rammstein, A Perfect Circle, The Animals, Peter, Paul, and Mary, The Mama's and The Papa's, Kingston Trio, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, John Denver
Please comment here or on my friends only post so I know you added me and I can add you back!
I'm Danielle, 28 years old, from Michigan.
I've had a livejournal since I was 15. (Not the same one, I've changed journals over the years.) LJ seems to be pretty slow these days so I am looking to add some more active friends. I've made some great friendships through LJ & I've met 8 of my LJ friends in person.
My journal is pretty random, there is no fluid theme. I work an office job I love, I have two kids, I'm single and have random, usually funny, dating encounters.
I'm a holistic natural type person. I've just gone gluten free due to health issues, so that's a new journey I'm on.
I am a total newbie to LJ. I wanted to start a journal just to get things off my mind from time to time and I came across this site. Seems to be an added bonus that you can make some friends up here. So here goes nothing…
My name is Nicole. I am a 28 year old female from eastern North Carolina. I’ve lived in this small town my whole life and while sometimes I think I should have ventured further than my hometown, but the older I have grown I can’t really imagine myself being anywhere else. I’m married, no children (as of yet), and I work as a paralegal specializing in estate planning, estate administration, corporate and tax planning. I know, how exciting (insert sarcasm here). With that said, I do love my job and work for a wonderful company.
My interests include:
Reading, cooking, spending time with close (and very few) close friends, spoiling my pit bull Dozer, spending as much time as I can with my dad (he is the only family I really have. I do not really have any other family I associate with. My mom is a dark, very complex topic), and spending time with my husband when I can (he works 60 hours a week as an RN).
I think I am a pretty good hearted person, too much for my own good at times. I worry completely too much about any and everything. I am currently trying to work through issues with anxiety as well as some depression while coming off of an antidepressant. At one point I thought an antidepressant would help, but they only seem to mask the issue and only help for a limited amount of time before they seem to make things worse than they were before. I have had some serious withdrawal symptoms, which is something I am trying to work through.
As I write this, it seems as my interest are very few and far between but I am hoping to change that. I want to be a more outgoing and productive person, so I hope that comes with time.
So in a very small nutshell…this is me. If you think you may have any similar interest or perhaps would be interested in being LJ friends, feel free to add me. I look forward to meeting you.
