Hello!

I have a new account but I'm not new to LiveJournal, I've been using it steadily since 2004. I made a new account this year as my old one was feeling a bit stale and I was fed up with all of the dead accounts on my f-list so I'm really eager to make some new friends on here! I do like to have actual people to interact with and aren't into adding people just to bulk up my friends list. Connecting with people is wonderful!

I mostly post about my day to day life, both the good and the terrible, sometimes fangirl about my interests, write about various things that interest me, a bit of everything really. Sometimes my content can be really fluffy and light-hearted, sometimes it can be pretty heavy going. Such is life.

I'm an illustrator and am generally crafty, I like to sew, knit, build stuff, I basically get bored and think "let's learn how to do that". I'm 26 mixed English Romany currently living in the North East Midlands of England. I love to travel and experience different cultures and have visited quite a lot of countries, including different places over Europe, Japan, Kenya, Caribbean, the US, etc. I'm a huge fan of Disney parks and visit them whenever I can afford it (mostly Paris, but I've been to all of them except China)

I enjoy listening to old records, retro fashion, the 1960s, making zines, watching the world go by from a cozy coffee shop, rooting through junk shops, Moomins, spooky stuff, wandering around nature, collecting stuff, daydreaming, teeth, and getting emotionally invested whilst watching movies.

Music: The Beatles, Ringo Starr, Queen, Roger Taylor, Donovan, The Move, The Monkees, The Doors, The Animals, The Kinks, basically classic rock for the most part. I do like some modern music including The Killers, Within Temptation, Nine Inch Nails, etc.

Movies: The Godfather movies, Dog Day Afternoon, Casino, Rosemary's Baby, Moulin Rouge, The Assassination of Richard Nixon, Reservoir Dogs, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Beetlejuice. I like films a lot.

TV: Family Guy, American Dad, Friends, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Hannibal

Books: Stephen King, Lewis Carroll, Shirley Jackson and Tove Jansson are my favourites. I mostly read horror, science fiction and kids books.

I'd love to make some new friends, so if you think we'd get along/share common interests please feel free to add me! :D
