Sometimes I feel like I am too many people, like my interests and choices are too wide. Perhaps that in itself means I don't know enough people.
I won't tell you my name, except maybe if we become very good friends. My parents instilled that much fear of the internet in me. I'm 17 and I live in the Midlands, in England. I've been on LJ for some years, through various accounts.
I don't actually post to my journal, although I'd quite like to have something to post about. I might start if there's any sort of audience.
I adore books, and have over 300 in my tiny bedroom. My absolute favourite author is Daniel Handler/Lemony Snicket (and if you have not read any of his books then I recommend them to you wholeheartedly). I also read a lot of translated books, because other cultures and languages fascinate me. I love linguistics, and would love to meet more people interested in it.
When people ask me my type of music, I'm pressed for an answer (it's that not giving things away thing). I listen to a lot of indie, like Voxtrot and Beirut, and I have a soft spot for female singers like Florence Welch, Marina Diamandis or Beth Ditto.
What I consume a lot less of is film, sadly, because I rather vehemently hate Hollywood movies; I've read too many social justice blogs, and it has ruined Hollywood for me. Besides, it's too contrived. I do like indie and foreign film, but my attention span means I often give up quickly. My favourite film I've seen so far has to be Amélie. (It might be a common answer, but only because it's so good.)
I identify as queer/bisexual, and I used to identify as an atheist. No more; I'm exploring different spiritual pathways, so to speak, but I am seriously considering converting to Judaism.
Now, I say I don't like giving away information about myself, but now I seem to have written down everything possible about myself.
I'm open to meeting any kind of people, so let's see how it goes!
