I'm Ginger. I'm 26 years old originally from the USA. I am currently living abroad in South Korea teaching ESL. I am looking for some new friends on livejournal. I'm not new to LJ, but I wanted to start anew after many years.
I love to learn about foreign culture. I have been abroad several times to different places and I just feel "myself" when I'm not in the US. Strange to say that. I'm not anti-American, but I just love going to somewhere new and observing how people live around the world. I've been to Central America, Europe, and Asia, hoping someday to go to Africa.
I'm kind of a geek. I love World of Warcraft and reading books. I love Harry Potter, and have an unhealthy love of Alan Rickman. I also love to read other fantasy novels and participate often in RPGs with my friends.
I am addicted to TV shows-- Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Law and Order SVU, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Behind Bars, Chopped!, Nurse Jackie, The L Word, The Real L Word, Queer as Folk, Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Celebrity Apprentice, Parking Wars, Dog the Bounty Hunter, among many others.
Music-- I am pretty much all over the map. For starters, I love musicals. I have only seen a few movie-musicals, and generally love them. I've been too broke to ever go see a musical in real life, though it's a life long dream of mine to see as many of them as I can live onstage someday. I also like Coldplay, John Mayer, Goo Goo Dolls, Third Eye Blind, Dave Matthews Band, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Missy Elliot, Wir Sind Helden, Juli, and many more. Since I can't use Pandora in Korea, I use Jango, and it is really a godsend using it because I get to listen to indie artists as well. ;)
I like penpals and would like the opportunity to keep lifelong penpals and chitchat with new people from anywhere. Especially from Germany. I speak German at a medium-high level and would like the opportunity to communicate in German if possible with others.
I'm pretty easy going. I am very open-minded and am very liberal. I am not dating right now, having just gotten out of a messy breakup. I am also a lesbian. I guess I should say that.
I really don't know what all else to say!! ;/
