I just recently moved back to the US after living abroad as an ESL/EFL instructor for ~9 years...I'm slowly integrating back into society through LJ :p ...but really, just looking for more LJ friends. I used to keep up with my "real world" friends via LJ, but they've slowly left LJ over the years. I've had several friends from LJ whom I've met IRL, and I've really enjoyed keeping in touch with people via written word. I'm also a writing instructor as well so that probably has something to do with why I like this platform so much.
I update 2 times a month (sorry...that's what I have time for), normally about everyday life. I'm 37, female, married and live in NYC and like talking about my work (ESL), pets, family and whatever catches my attention these days. While I don't always have time to keep up with people, I tend to make up for that for catching up/commenting at least once a month, and I do it consistently...most people I know on LJ, I've known for several years.
Please comment on this post if you plan to friend me...otherwise, I'll probably be clueless about who you are and why you've friended me.
