I wasn't exactly new to this. I'm an LJ member since 2008. I'm an on-off member who now wants to be more active.
As you can see, most of my friends are gone, and the rest who are left are now inactive. Their last update was around 2011-2012. I assumed that their accounts are dead but I just don't have the heart to delete them just yet for the hopes of them returning someday, like I did.
Anyway, who wants to be my friend?
While it is true that I love anime and manga, I now use the site mostly for blogs, sharing personal things or discussing random topics that come to mind. I want to establish new friendships and meet new awesome people to share ideas with.
