Looking for new friends after return to LJ.

Hi everyone,

I've recently returned to LJ, had a different account before but haven't been around for a while, and I'd love to find some new interesting, like-minded friends to share and talk about things with.

Here's some information about me. I'm a girl/woman in my early 30s and I live in Finland. There are two kind of topics I'm especially likely to write about in my journal. For one thing, I'm really into books, theatre and other forms of arts and culture, am very into talking/writing about these things and can get kind of fannish without really participating in fandoms online, and I want to share that kind of things somewhere, and maybe get to know others who enjoy the same things as well.

For another, I've identified as bisexual for long, have unfortunately tried to suppress that a bit in the past few years and try to aim for living like a straight person, pursuing the opposite gender like a good girl supposedly should, and it's just not working out and I'm wondering if I'm not only bisexual but actually more to the lesbian side of the scale than I realised. In any case I need to give myself the freedom to be my non-straight self and not force myself into the format that the society expects, and this journal is my safe place for writing about that. Hopefully as I write about it and get to know others like me, it will become easier to be who I am all the time.

So obviously, I don't welcome homophobes (or anyone of some shade of LGBT+-phobia). But it doesn't mean that potential friends need to be in a similar situation, either - connecting over those other interests like a shared love of books is also welcome, as long as you don't have any problems with me writing about this part of myself.

A bit more information about me. My hobbies and interests include reading, creative writing, theatre, music, musicals, travel, languages, nature and outdoors. I love animals though I have no pets, and I adore tea. I also enjoy writing letters. My favourite books and authors compass a wide range and I'm trying out new things a lot these days, but some favourites include L.M. Montgomery, Jane Austen, Sarah Waters, Tove Jansson, Terry Pratchett, Gail Carriger, The Count of Monte Cristo... For musicals, I'm particularly into European fare like Elisabeth, Mozart!, Tanz der Vampire and Der Besuch der alten Dame, but I do also see and listen to musicals from the English-speaking world. My other taste in music ranges from classical to Hayley Westenra to Queen and The Clash, depending on my mood. I'm rather interested in LGBT+ issues, feminism and social issues.

Please comment here or to my LJ, or send me a private message, if you'd like to become friends. I hope to get to know new people, but I still prefer some form of introduction before becoming friends.
