I literally thought LJ is dead but now that I delved deeper I see seasoned people coming back. Maybe due to Facebook craziness or limitations on Twitter or no privacy on Tumblr... It seems LJ always created a safe space which I haven't found anywhere else really. I recently decided to undust my account and see for myself what I can get out of this :)
A little bit about me: I am a 37 year old female (at least the numbers say so... the RL crowd still checks for my ID) on
Creativity is a huge emotional outlet for me. My usual stuff: making and swapping Decos, Planner stuff (not BuJo, I like making the whole thing from scratch... newbie bookbinding included), creating trees out of wire and beads, some crocheting, Tincture making, and gardening. And I write letters. You know, the old time letter writing on paper with ink? That. Exactly that. And nobody will ever take that away from me :D
Otherwise I like being outside in nature. My parents were always outside so I grew up being outside and it's something that really defined who I am (and also where I am going). You can probably tell by now that I am somewhat of a Hippie but I wouldn't squeeze myself in that category: I think categories are limiting in many ways.
Some additional interests/likes: Photography, Cemeteries, music (ambient, psychill, goa, some goth/industrial/alternative, and pretty much what comes along... my fave online station is soma.fm), literature (sadly not much fiction lately due to years of studying medicine and now herbalism), art, lengthy and deep discussions about everything, tea, coffee, postcards, vintage and retro,paganism, history, old maps, conspiracy theories, oddities, stationery, poetry, halloween, autumn/fall, recycling, cooking, beaches, hiking, flea markets & thrift stores, games (board - and videogames),... yeah that's a short list and my interests change sometimes too.
Ok enough about me (still awake? :p). Let's talk about what I actually want here: opend-minded friends that are against racism, pedophilia and pretty much all the nasty stuff nobody ever wants to talk about with a huge heart. Or something like that. I honestly don't have that many requirements besides the fact that I would like to surround myself with people with a positive attitude towards bettering the world and some sense of understanding the world as a whole and not a TV screen :)
I am NOT looking for romance: I am a happy wife with no children!
Ok, that's it I think. Sorry for the long thing but stuff like tends to happen with me. You have been warned! Add me if you like <3
