Friends?

Hi (:

While I love my friend’s page, I do find myself refreshing a bit more than I would like. I’ve made some great friendships through livejournal and I’d like to make a few more. I’ve been on this journal since 2006 (with a 1.5 year break when LJ was going bonkers), and overall I’ve been on livejournal since its invite code days (:

About me:
32, Female, Happily Single, Two Brothers (younger)
I live in Connecticut, but was born in São Miguel, Açores and am fluent in Portuguese (I write in English though)
I work at a local college in both the Admissions/Registrar’s Office
I have no pets, no kids but lots of hobbies

Hobbies:
Video games, reading, “hanging out”, photography, fiction writing, blogging (:D), sleeping, TV/Movie watching, hiking/walking, enjoying mother nature as often as possible… etc.

Things I post about Often:
Work – 40 hours a week at one place … something is definitely happening that I need to write about.
Family & Friends – I am very family oriented and spend a lot of time with my parents and siblings, so they’re often written about. I also have some great times with great friends, which I write about as well.
Video Games – Lately I’ve been into SIMS 3 (a couple of posts with screen shots) … so I talk about my games. I also play Diablo 3, World of Warcraft (casual), Battlefield 3, Battlefield 2, and will probably be talking about Guild Wars 2 and the new Medal of Honor that’s coming out too. Yeah, I’m a gamer chick.
Rambles – You’ll find I like to ramble, so I am often doing this. :D

Things I post Semi-Often:
Photography – I am no professional, but it’s something I enjoy doing and will post photos. I usually only post 3 outside of a cut and the rest under a cut, and they’re never bigger than 500px length wise.
Fiction – I am currently working on writing a book, so I occasionally post excerpts. I sometimes write short stories, or poems, which I share from time to time. I do not write fanfiction, but am not opposed to reading it (though I rarely do).
Livejournal Polls – I like polls; they’re fun. I don’t post them every day, but once in a while I fancy a poll (that sounds wrong, but I’m leaving it in).
Book & Movie Reviews – I haven’t really being doing much of these lately, but I would like to get back into this.
TV Show Thoughts – I have my favorite tv shows that I sometimes come ‘squee’ on livejournal about: NCIS, Vampire Diaries, Fairly Legal, The Big Bang Theory, and a mix of SyFy shows (Haven, Alphas, Warehouse 13)…not often but when a really good episode gets me all hyped up (:

So that is me in a nutshell. I do like entries with substance, but the occasional meme, etc doesn’t turn me away. I read daily, more than a few times a day. I do comment, but not always on every entry. I like comments but I don’t threaten people with removal if I don’t get comments (I only remove dead journals, dead = more than 2 months without posting).

I really do like active writers, so if you post more than a couple times a week, I’d love to be friends! A lot of my entries are public so feel free to browse before buying in (:  And if I haven’t put you to sleep, add? :D
