Hey. Hi. Um... hello?

Eh. I'm so horridly bad at this stuff but let's have a go at introductions... um. Okay. I'll cross-post this to a few communities just so I don't have to face the impossible mission of writing several intros when I can barely handle coming up with one...

So. Hai. I'm Jojo, a 25-year-old Finnish future crazy cat lady. Taken, no children. Hardcore gamer (raised with adventure & strategy games but nowadays more a MMO/RPG junkie) & tomboy princess extraordinaire. Atypical Virgo who thrives in chaos, quite bohemian (read: horribly messy). Mahayana Buddhist. Into piercings & tattoos but not covered in either (although tbh, some day I probably will be). Fond of drawing, writing and photography, although only marginally talented in each. Bipolar I (not self- or Internet-diagnosed, I got my paperwork from ~5 professionals) with an anxiety/panic disorder, borderline OCD and suspected Asperger's so you can imagine I'm not exactly the most normal of people. I'm in active therapy and am an outpatient at a rehab center specialized in making sure I can handle real life & its trials but I'm proud to say I've never been hospitalized aka my illness is relatively under control. I have the habit of getting fixated with certain things, and I'm rabid about my fandoms (which include Silent Hill, Spartacus, old Sierra games (Phantasmagoria!) & the original pre-Kat-as-Pink-Ranger Power Rangers, to name a few). I enjoy Asian pop, World of Warcraft, Champions Online, Age of Empires, Baldur's Gate & The Sims 2 and I collect retro RPGs.

Blue eyes, currently black dreaded locks down to my midback. I am short and somewhat chunky. As of early June I am an Atkins follower. I have no gall bladder. The words most often used to describe me are annoying, weird and colorful. I returned to LJ yesterday & will most likely post a lot, and also comment a lot. I love long, rambly conversations about nothing in particular, and I also <3 comments.

What I'm looking for is people who I could consider friends, not random followers who never read my ramblings. I don't care if you're #FFFFFF or #000000 or even #FF0054 -- all I want is for you to have understanding & a sense of humor. I'm somewhat thin-skinned so I don't take criticism well... if you're the kind of person who likes to remark on every little mistake a person makes, I'm not the kind of person you should befriend. But if you're an open-minded, kind and ideally also somewhat experienced in life and don't mind sometimes extremely frequent updates that often are of the picspam/icon variety, then I could be someone you'd be interested in following.

What do I have to offer to you? Frequent commenting. Honest opinions. Genuine interest in your life (stalker genes). Support. Hopefully some giggles, and perhaps a different POV on life and the crapnoodles it throws at you. :)
