I work at an office for a living and at an animal-shelter by conviction. In my LJ I post at least once a week about stuff going on in my life, often with photos. I may mention animals just as often as people, maybe even a bit more. Writing letters, day trips, live music, reading are the things I enjoy. I prefer being outdoors to in a club, I think it's never too late to try new things and randomness amuses me.
Fandoms: none. But it was LotR and Harry Potter that brought me to LJ years and years ago. I don't watch any shows and nearly all of what I know about it is from here, so I definitely don't mind if you write about your favourite fandoms alongside real life stuff.
Politics and religion only find marginal mention in my entries (like, oh look, it's christmas soon!) and I care less about what labels you choose in that regard than what kind of person you are beneath those categories.
Either we get along or we don't, let's just try and see.
What else is there to mention? What I love about LJ is the interaction, so I like to comment and read my f-list daily.
Let me know if you'd like to try the adding-thing.
