Be (redroses1791) wrote in add_me,

ive done a few of these so i'm gonna try again. :)

I'm in my late 20s, live in Oregon. Single (gonna be a spinster, i am i am.) Five cats, two dogs. 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 both places, especially since my grocery store job is going through some changes in management and coworkers (6 people left this month! GEEZE.) my life's slowed down a lot compared to my past, so i think i'm super boring now. hell, i KNOW i'm super boring now. but i do get an adventure in there every now and then when i can.

Music; I listen to a lot and actually it's how i've made most of my friends. my listening used to be primarily Japanese-based but fortunately, for various reasons, i've slowly fallen out of those fandoms but still gonna keep a few around just for the sake of memories and whatever. more specific bands/artists i like are Dir en Grey, AliceNine, The Killers, Bowie, All Time Low, 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 or dubstep stuff is growing on me. ive been on 8tracks listening to a bunch of mixes including instrumentals *cough that's lord of the rings inspired cough* as well as discovering other artists like Melody Gardot, Imagine Dragons, Skylar Grey, Lana Del Rey, and tons of others that i'm always seeming to hear about but never actually listening to. throw some Opera and classical in there while we're at it, too. i love me some opera.

Likes: fashion and hair. tumblr (shh, i finally got sucked in and i love it.) some video games, reading (i 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. (Oh and of course Walking Dead)
Since i got Netflix, I like watching bad handycam films because i'm a sucker for those. more favorite movies consist of The Goonies, Legend, Jurassic Park, Die Hard, 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. I also adore Lee Pace and Tom Hiddleston. because how can you NOT i mean really...Lord of the Rings/Hobbit stuff, Marvel stuff....

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. or under cuts.
-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.
-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 and offer an ear to listen. 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 at all. and fyi "added you!" does not count as a hello. gimme mini intro or something, direct me to your own add-me post!?

and here's a pic that's the most recent 8) more office!mode than normal!mode, but oh well.
