Im from NZ, 33 and tend to use LJ on an almost regular basis. Ive been using LJ since 2003 first under ladyhyacinth then moving to this journal.
My journal is friends locked (save for a few posts to give a clue to what I write about), the journal content is full of variety of posts about everyday stuff, personal and private stuff, funnies, things I see on the net, photos, writings (when I get on my writing jags), its primary use is being a place where I can put things in there that make me think, laugh, mainly positive energy type of vibes sort of journal (not that I won't have my bitchy days - I just tend to stay clear away as much negativity as I can realistically get away with as my real life allows me that outlet so, I don't use LJ for it).
I have a couple of cats, a partner overseas (LDR), and a variety of interests from cooking, baking, photography, family, friends, writing (I really think this sounds like a desperate dateless advert of the type you read about in dating sites of the things you can offer to other folks) but really I guess that is what an addme community is in a sense?
Not entirely sure what else to add actually, but if you are interested feel free to poke your nose in and have a look at the profile and see if you want to be friends :) There is also currently a frenzy on my journal so you can play along, or disregard its' would be fun to play along no?
The more the merrier I say. On that note, yes I have a big friends list, but half I'd say are dead journals or those that are inactive, I can't seem to let them go as they were all writers that in some shape or form I really enjoyed reading about, and Im ever hopeful that they'll return to LJ like I did earlier this year.
