Former LJ user looking for new friends

Hi everybody, my name is Ayana and I'm from The Netherlands. I'm 32 years old, have a beautiful 1 year old son named Jayden and we live with my boyfriend John, a staffy Zorro and 2 kittens Mila and Loki.
Since we will be moving soon, I consider it a new start in life and I wanted the same for my journal; no reminders of old boyfriends, old anxieties and other old crap. :)

I had been a hardcore LJ user about 10 years ago but then I left for a while, then I came back hoping to find the same friendships and fun, but I didn't and my journal had gone stale. But I keep missing it, a place where people offline don't know me, a place where I can rant or share nice things in my life, and hopefully make a few good friends I have common interests with. Maybe I also miss being 20 years old, I don't know, haha.

Offline I'm not a real people person, I don't hate them, but I just always have a hard time connecting with them and find a common ground. I'm socially awkward one might say and I don't always feel the need to be around them. I don't really have friends, the few I did have betrayed my trust so nowadays I pretty much stick with acquaintances. Online I usually get by a bit more easily. But I miss having a deeper connection with some sometimes.

In my journal I mainly enjoy sharing photos of loved ones (my family and pets), share artwork that I've made (paintings and drawings), haikus/poetry from time to time and exciting things in my life. I do cope with a depression but I don't always feel the need to write about it extensively. So it's not a dark and depressing journal and I hope to keep it that way.

My favorite TV shows include Orphan Black, The Blacklist, Dexter, The Mentalist, House M.D., Criminal Minds and NCIS. I'm not a huge fan of the spin-offs, but maybe that's because I don't like change.

I'm not a religious person, I don't have a problem with it but it's not for me. I'm a kind person, sometimes too kind. I enjoy going out with my family and 'friends' for drinks, go shopping when the wallet allows for it. I also enjoy photography, mainly I photograph my pets and my son, or when I'm bored I take pictures of flowers. I also have a love for piercings and tattoos, currently I have 18 piercings and so far only 2 tattoos but I hope for more in the future.

Not sure what else to say about myself, if there are any questions feel free to ask them.
You're very welcome to add me as a friend if you see we have anything in common. :)
