I am 23. Newly graduated from university in ne england and now living in London and working as a research scientist. It's pretty cool. I'm in that awkward penguin phase of no longer having built in friends from school or uni since I've moved far away from them all for my job (and now live with three strange fellows I found on the internet - which is nothing at all like that zooey deschanel show lead me to believe) I thought I might look into acquiring some kind of hobby. And then I thought why don't I just get back on livejournal instead. Good plan.
So I am in the market for some friends.
STUFF I LIKE; books (!!). youtube vloggers. politics. cooking. the 80s. milkshakes. maths. disneyland. oscar wilde. travelling. astronomy. television. photography. british comedians. ridiculously named cocktails. neutral milk hotel. photoshop. chuck palahniuk. poker. comic books. van gogh. tennis. doctor who. rollarcoasters. darren criss. adele singing 'someone like you' at the brits. documentaries. mix cds. florence and the machine. writing (though my nanowrimo status is 79 words and not even good ones). caffeine in all its beautiful forms. the princess bride. going to the cinema. yoga. louis theroux. drinking games. everything John Green has written. knitting. the west wing. tumblr. andrew garfield. sciencey type things. generation kill + the pacific + band of brothers. the hunger games. the beatles. nature shows. harry potter (i was officially sorted as a ravenclaw last week. happy days.) snow. not capitalising things, apparently. (Lies. I like grammar really, I promise.)
Overall, I'm pretty easy going - sometimes a little neurotic but mostly lovely and we should be friends.
Cheers, Lauren ♥!
