My name's Laura, I'm 28 and living on the outskirts of the New Forest in Hampshire, England. I've had my journal for 10 years now, but I have to admit up til now I've only updated it sporadically. It's been a comforting part of my life though, and I always find my way back here, usually when I've had some kind of shit-hitting-the-fan situation happen! Anyway, I plan to post more regularly from now on, and finding a few more like-minded friends may be an incentive to keep it up.
So...I like a lot of things. Music is the big one. I am a collector of vinyl and I will give virtually anything a listen. My favourite era though is probably the mid-sixties to mid-seventies, and I am in love with bands like Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Yes, Mike Oldfield, King Crimson...the list goes on and on. I play guitar also (pretty badly, I'm just a bedroom guitarist) and I've just acquired a violin which I'm planning on teaching myself to play (or get lessons for when I've had enough of sounding like shit and making my own ears bleed).
I also love reading. This too is something that I'm getting back into. I went for a long spell of never even picking up a book, but I try now to make sure I've always got one on the go. Again, I'll try most things, but I do love Irvine Welsh, Hunter S Thompson and George Orwell.
I find it hard to describe myself as a person, because I HATE labels and find that although a word may fit me in one way, it totally goes against who I am in another. I guess...I just am what I am. Open-minded? Free-spirited? Those seem fairly safe and accurate, if you really want me to put a description to myself. Other than that, if you want to know more, I guess you'll just have to add me and find out! I look forward to hopefully making friends with some of you soon, and thanks for taking the time to read this far! If you're going to add me could you possibly just leave a comment here, or on my journal, otherwise I won't know you're there! Ta :)
