Be (redroses1791) wrote in add_me,

ive done a few of these so i'm gonna try again. i did a hard cleanup up of friends list so its a bit dead.

I'm in my late 20s, live in Oregon. Single (gonna be a spinster, i am i am.) Five cats, two dogs-one is a puppy more in her puppy phase still so yay for that. Grocery store employee for 11 years and doing part-time at a dr's office on the side which i sort of hate sometimes. but i like having the money. (so, you can bet i rant a bunch about those) my life's slowed down a lot compared to my past so i think i'm super boring now, but i do get an adventure in there every now and then.

Music; I listen to a lot, actually and it's how i've made 90% of my friends. Most of my listening used to be primarily Japanese-based but fortunately, for various reasons i'm slowly falling out of those fandoms but still gonna keep a few around just for the sake of memories and whatever. I like Dir en Grey, AliceNine, The Killers, Bowie, All Time Low, Marianas Trench, almost anything from the 80s. I've even been known to headbang to some Norwegian metal (Kvelertak) and i'm fond of Nachtmahr and some other gothy darkwave techno, even that bassdrop stuff. I apparently like some country songs, too, and ive been on 8tracks listening to a bunch of instrumental stuff lately and been digging that. *cough that's lord of the rings inspired cough* and throw some Opera and classical in there while we're at it. If it can make me feel something then i dig it.

Likes: fashion and hair. Playstation, reading (just finished a Norse Mythology book and have a pile of JRR Tolkien stuff i need to get through including Unfinished Tales and The Silmarillion), strawberry lemonade, zombies, vodka, snailmail/getting mail and/or packages, shopping, baking/cooking, going to concerts, organizing things and cleaning, overseas/traveling, various tv shows currently on air and not around anymore including Golden Girls, Ripper Street, Being Human (UK), Sherlock, Pushing Daisies, Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth and Haunted Collector just for funsies. Oh and of course Walking Dead. I've more recently gotten Netflix so I like watching bad handycam films because i love those. more favorite movies consist of The Goonies, Legend, Jurassic Park and Silence of the Lambs. I also will watch almost any black and white film from the 30s/40s and be completely happy with that. Also adore Lee Pace and Tom Hiddleston. cuz yay. I also am starting to collect venetian masks again, and luckily (in a way..) they seem to be sort of popular now so its a bit easier to find them. I started my collection with three smaller masks i actually got in Venice and wanted to find friends for them <3

Dislikes, and the part where I sound like a jerk but hey i might as well say it so it can save people some time or whatever. :|v

-I'm a pretty easygoing person, but don't type like an idiot.
-Married? kids? totally an unofficial spokessperson for some human rights movement or law? thats cool. just keep it level.
-macros, youtube videos, large images? cool. again, CUTS, people. if this is all you are about on here then no thanks. thats what tumblr and facebook is for.
-also just plain spamming. if you post EVERY FREAKING HOUR...well then...
-drugs/alochol/partylife? thats cool. i love some good stories and live vivaciously through some of my friends. but "omg u gaiz i got SO stoned last night!" ain't my cup of tea. make it an adventure or at least well-written, or its just pointless.
-also like...depression, and things of that nature. i understand. everyone has something in their closets and i really have my shitty times i try to keep on the DL. ive got my own problems so i can relate to a certain extent. but if its some mass 'woe is me' all the time i dont think we're going to get along so well. sorry :( I find it hard to keep myself up and perky when i'm consistently in contact/viewing negative stuff and well, it just sucks and I try to avoid it because I HATE FEELING LIKE SHIT.

So in the end, I'm no special snowflake and my journal consists of rants and random things of the day. I use cuts on basically everything so I don't eat your friendspage, and i'm a shit commenter but I'm trying to be better about it always. But if you're on my friends list, i'm reading. :) I try to update at least once a week, but more if i have something to actually flail about or whatever.

If you're keen to friend, let me know either here or in a PM! Everything is friends-only so if you just add me without a hello i won't be friending back. and fyi "added you!" does not count as a hello. gimme mini intro or something, direct me to your own add-me post, whatever!

and here's a pic that's a couple months old and ive actually used it on here already at least once but whatever. far too lazy to try to take another selfie that i actually dont mind and dont want to delete right away. :\
