I've posted here numerous times before, like everyone else, searching for LJ friends. My friends list has been somewhat quiet as of late, and so I once again turn to add_me to help me. And rather than copy and paste my regular spiel, here is a a drunk one! I know you're excited for this.
So who am I? I'm Dusk. Hello! I'm 23, and I study Biology with an interest in Cultural Anthropology. There, that's it for the super boring details. Well, almost.
I work in an Optometrist's office, meaning I sell sight to people. And that is just fancy way of saying I sell contacts and glasses. I post about my job pretty often. I try not to post boring details, but I do post about work. I spend 5 days a week there -- it's a big part of my life, whether I like it or not. It's crazy, and unpredictable certain days, but it's a job. And most of the times, the chaos is rather welcome.
I play video games. A lot of video games. I won't go into a list of all games I play -- I like a lot. The top of the top are Mass Effect, Fallout, Civilization, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls. I play and enjoy much more than this. I love having more people to play games with, so if you have Steam or a PS3 and are looking at messing around, shoot me a message and we can melt some faces. I just recently quit WoW after 5 years and am ecstatic, at actually having time to play more games.
I practice yoga. Yoga keeps me sane, most days. I also dance around my room to random songs whenever I start feeling down. Or when I'm drunk. This also keeps me sane. Health itself has become important to me as of late. Healthy foods, moving my body, you name it. We only get one life, so I might as well make sure I live as long as I possibly can. But really, if you ever start feeling depressed, put on a song and just let your body move. It can be so freeing.
I drink. And if that's problem, I'll save your time and tell you to look elsewhere for a friend. I enjoy drinking, and however much I used to pretend I don't, I do. I love ending good days by quite a few glasses of vodka or wine. This is normally a few times a week, maybe 1 when school starts, but I greatly enjoy drinking. I don't care if you do, but if you're going to make remarks about how awful drinking is, I'd rather not hear it. To each their own, in my opinion, and drinking is something I enjoy.
I love travel. I love places that aren't here and I love other cultures. My long-term goal is to travel around the world and actual experience the joys of what is right in front of me, rather than a virtual or fake world. Currently, as I'm in school, I can't travel as much as I'd like, but it is always there, at the back of my mind. The world is a fascinating place, full of so many different opinions, places, and outlooks. I want to experience all that and one day I plan to. I would like to consider myself a vagabond -- traveling around the world for months, if not years at a time, but we'll see how life plays out.
What I'm looking for in LJ friends is first and most important, a connection. So many people think that this comes from comments or talking outside LJ, and don't get me wrong, I enjoy both of those greatly, but they are not the only way to forge a connection. I have a few friends I treasure greatly that I don't have any contact with outside of that they post and I adore them. If I'm skipping your posts, I'll be honest, I'll defriend you. It isn't personal, but I don't want to clutter my friends list. I' m not looking for numbers. I'm looking for LJ friends. That said, I also have friends I swap comments with rather frequently. It varies from person to person, and I won't pretend it doesn't. I'm more than willing to test the waters with anyone that has an interest. I may sound picky, but I'm really not. I greatly enjoy reading about lives that are different from my own, and that's really all I ask of LJ friends -- you have an interest in what I post. I'm not expecting comments on every post, I'm just asking we actually BE friends.
For those that have gotten through this and are still interested, I have a great interest in meeting you! Just drop me a comment or spend me a message, and I'll be sure to add you back! The only thing I ask if you let me know -- either a comment or a message. This is just so I know who are you and that you do actually have an interest in being friends. You don't have to go into any details, just say something like "Hey! I'd like to be friends!" and I'll more than likely not add you.
And in closing, I'll give you my favorite video on Youtube of all time. Here it is. Whenever I need a pick up or inspiration, I watch this video and sometimes his first video. There is nothing I have that makes me feel more connected to the world currently.
