Что заставило вернуться в LiveJournal?

Кажется, я сто лет не писал сюда. Социальные сети и мессенджеры настолько упростили коммуникацию, что нет нужды писать в прежнем объеме, сохраняя при этом живой контакт. Зачем же вновь вернулся сюда в старый добрый ЖЖ? На ум приходит только одно - НОСТАЛЬГИЯ. Оказалось, мне ужасно не хватает того прежнего лампового переживания, когда здесь публиковались по-настоящему ценные посты без монетизации и прочей лабуды. Наверное, те времена давно закончилисьи канули, как говорится, в Лету... Неужели настолько всё плохо сейчас?

Looking for Friends

I am a stay-at-home mother of two toddlers, struggling with depression and anxiety. I get lonely. I would like some new friends. 

I love books, needlework, cooking and baking, history, learning languages and all sorts of things. 

I would love to have someone to talk to, and to be able to share things with people. 

This may be a humble advertisement for a friend, but it is a sincere one. Please leave a comment or add me if you are interested. 

Thank you for your time.

Looking for a few new friends,

Hey there, I'm a casual LJ user (wanting to become more habitual) and my friends feed has grown pretty quiet. I'm a pretty private person so my entries are friends only. I am in a monogamous long term relationship so when I say friends I mean just friends haha. 

I am a female POC so if you don't believe in racial disparity or white privilege then we probably won't be the right fit (which is okay.) 

I love books, music, taking care of my houseplants and cooking. I post some of my day to day, some of my creative writing and pictures of my day to day once in awhile!

Seeking kindred spirits.

Hello community. I'm a 32-year-old girl person in search of kindred spirits to befriend, as all my old friends on here seem to have fallen off the face of the earth. I'd describe myself as a chronic daydreamer, an incorrigible romantic and eternal kid at heart. I never grew out of make believe; I'm a believer of magic. My interests are sundry and manifold. I love books of all kinds, with a special penchant for classic romance (think Jane Austen and the Brontës), and at other times still find myself picking up old children's books. You could say I'm a nostalgic, sentimental creature, prone to feelings of wistfulness and whimsy. My music taste is likewise diverse but currently I'm going through a phase of 80s alternative, 90s grunge, riot grrls, and Lana Del Rey. I'm dying to meet people who still understand the magic of Francesca Lia Block books or Sofia Coppola films, or early Tim Burton, or any of my other interests really!

I lead a very solitary lifestyle so my days are far from exciting, and my journal is thus oriented towards more reflective content. I'm a late bloomer in life as I have a history of mental illness, including anxiety, depression and c-ptsd, so I often feel a bit lost. It might be nice to meet people who understand such struggles.

If any of this sounds interesting to you and you'd like to give the friendship thing a try, please just leave a comment here or on my journal and I'll get back to you shortly. Thanks for reading! ♥

Celebrating 1 Year On LJ!


My name is Lorraine. I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in the Pacific North West of the United States. 

I've had this journal for a year and it has been a great one. I've enjoyed having this place to vent, speculate, and chronicle my life. I have met a lot of cool, interesting people on here and I would like to meet more! 

As for the stuff I blog about: My daily life, movies that I watch and music I listen to, shows/concerts I attend, funny conversations etc. I don't always go out very much, but when I do I write about it in great detail. I post pretty consistently, about 2 or 3 times a week (half of my entries are friends only, especially ones that have pictures of my face.) 

I love horror films and really anything offbeat/cult/sci-fi etc, although my favorite movie of all time is Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. 

For music: My favorite band is Depeche Mode. I like all kinds of electronic/synth-pop stuff. I love hip-hop music like Ho99o9, Shabazz Palaces, and Death Grips. I also like lo-fi rock music (my LJ name is a Guided By Voices reference.) Other genres I gravitate to are post-punk, neo-soul, bluesy punkish rock music, shoegaze, anything sullen and moody. 

If any of this resonates with you, drop me a line and give me an add :D The only time I've taken people off my friend's list is if they have opinions that are bigoted and hateful, so none of that please.

    Olay, olay, olay....


Hi! I'm Nicole. I am a divorced, single Mom to a 3 year old little girl. I'm living the dream in the Midwest. I'm a music lover, a free spirit, and a sarcastic smartass. I write about my life. I often go months without writing at all in which case, my LJ friends leave me. So I'm looking for friends that don't mind my absence from time to time. If that's you, add me! Let's be weird together. <3
