I'm a 23 year old Canadian living in Germany, with my aunt and uncle, near Hamburg. Right now I'm just a language student, but eventually I want to go to university. I'm also currently unemployed, since I can't work in Germany until I get my passport. In Canada I was a machine operator/welder in Edmonton for two years, although I'm originally from Vancouver. I'm not sure what I want to do for a career, but I do know that I don't want to go back to welding, haha.
Once I'm relatively fluent-ish in German I really want to learn French and Swedish, although I'm not sure which to do first!
I love reading fantasy/science fiction, and I like writing it too, although I don't write as much as I would like to.
For the most part my journal is just talking about books I've read, movies I've watched, and my day-to-day life. I tend to post at least once or twice a week, but sometimes more if there's a whole bunch of exciting stuff going on in my life. (But that doesn't happen often, haha.)
For me, the only no-go for a friend are people who write about politics ALL the time. I don't mind it once in a while, but I tent to skip over those posts because they bore me. (I do take politics seriously and exercise my right to vote. But I don't enjoy reading about it for fun, and for me LJ is about fun.)
Other than that, I'm happy to be friends with just about anyone!
