I’ve been on LJ for years, with a hiatus every now and then, but writing keeps me grounded and I intend not to disappear any more. I fully enjoy my life, but since I don’t really fit into mainstream society (I’m asexual, childfree, a person of very strong principles, a bookworm and very passionate about my work and interests), I tend to seek friendships online, where there is just a greater chance to find like-minded people (or those with whom it’s fun to disagree).
My hobbies include, beside my job which is all things ancient Egyptian language, scripts and texts, include the art of memory (I’m a researcher as well as a practitioner), fitness (I go to the gym regularly), running (which I’m currently neglecting), reading (especially fantasy).
I like books (the fatter the better), the woods and my summer house which is in the woods, teaching and lecturing, good wine, tea and coffee, cooking and baking, good music (which for me is especially symphonic metal, goth, pagan, and classical), laughing, people I can trust and rely on.
I dislike dishonesty, the cold, cities that are made for cars and tourists and not for their citizens, most pop music, stupid reality TV, gossip, current oversexualized society.
I’m atheist but enjoy things pagan, I meditate when I’m not too lazy and don’t dismiss the possibility of the world being more than we can see.
Oh, and I’m verbose, as this betrays. Hoping to get to know some of you!
