I live in Germany (in Hamburg, to be precise), although I'm originally from Latvia, which makes me a Latvian, although I can speak Russian on a near-native level. I have an MA degree in English, not that you can tell from the way I write - that's because I never liked my studies and promptly forgot everything as soon as I graduated. I work at work doing stuff. I love cats, but I'm not allowed to have pets in the flat that I rent.
I like science-fiction and fantasy, although I'm not reading much lately. Ain't nobody got time for that, the internet is calling me! Anyhow, my favourite books are Lord of the Rings, Hyperion, Dune, Brave New World, and Asimov's robot stories. I like robots and computers. They are good, they are our friends!
I also read lots of manga. Lots, lots of manga. I like sports series because they are all about friendship and determination and strength of character, all the things I lack. I also like action series. My current interests are Kuroko no Basket, Magi, Diamond no Ace and Haikyuu. My less current interests include Kekkaishi, Psyren, Hunter x Hunter, Giant Killing, Area no Kishi, Prince of Tennis and argh, lots more, can't think of any now.
I like various genres of electronic music. That's about it, really - if the music doesn't have computers or synthesisers, I just get bored listening to it. Electronics are the pinnacle of technological evolution, so it only makes sense that the best music is electronic! XDD My favourite bands are And One, Covenant, De/Vision, Kraftwerk, Welle Erdball, Syrian, Depeche Mode, Assemblage 23, VNV Nation, X-Rx, Ashbury Heights, Solitary Experiments and more.
I am not a big fan of films or TV series, although I have occasionally watched some British comedies or sci-fi films. My favourite film ever is probably Terminator 2 because it's just too awesome! I also like Equilibrium and Matrix.
I do, however, watch considerable amounts of anime. My favourite series is Gintama. In fact, if you are a Gintama fan, you can disregard the rest of this post and friend me right away! Other series I currently follow are Ginga e Kickoff and Magi (not watching much this season, am I...) In general, among my favourite series are TTGL, Kuroko no Basket, Natsume Yuujinchou, and idk, I like lots, but I can't call them favourite...
So, that basically covers the relevant information about me, whoever managed to read all of it gets a cookie. But now, for the most important part - what I'm looking for!
As already mentioned, I am looking for people who are active on LJ. I don't need people who post once a year, I already have lots of those on my f-list. I also don't need people who don't comment - if we have common interests, then you probably have something to say about what I post, no? If we don't have common interests, we should not get befriended in the first place. Naturally, I myself try to comment on pretty much everything.
The contents of your journal should be mostly fandom. Well, 80% fandom is a good proportion, I think. I understand some people want to share information about their weight loss journey, their babies, their psychological problems, all the details about their horrible school teachers, sordid sex life, and clothes they bought, but I don't want to read about that on my f-list all the time every day. Cat photos every day are fine, however. Unless you call them furbabies D:
Also, good grammar and spelling from your side are imperative.
As to my own LJ, it's 95% not friendslocked, so you can just go and take a look and see whether you want to friend me at all. Well, I kind of hope somebody does and I haven't scared everyone off by the wall of text XD
