I joined LJ a while back, and did nothing because I didn't know what to do. I think the U.S. has a bigger tradition of journalling than in the UK. I was going through a bad time, so I typed darkness into the search box, and from there gradually found people and communities, and now I am an LJ devotee.
I overanalyse and I am sometimes quiet, so don't add me 'if you hate all that new age BS' or want a frequent poster. If you want to share your journey with me, then go ahead, I am interested in all walks of life and will follow your story. Age is immaterial to me. As far as I am concerned, life is about self-development and positive progress, and so that is reflected in my journal.
Other than dealing with life itself, I don't have many interests, other than music which falls into the genres of industrial / ebm / dark electro / goth / dance / ethereal / neofolk etc. you get the idea.
More info if you want it on my bio page. Whatever happens, go in peace and respect for nature, and be well!
