I've been away from lj for a very long time, but I want to return. My friend list has thinned out and I would love to add new people!
My name is Jeni (short for Jennifer, but no one ever calls me that), I'm 35 years old and I live in Germany.
I share my apartment with seven parakeets and a dwarf hamster. And also hundreds of unwanted spiders...
My boyfriend is also kind of living here. We met at the beginning of this year and have been in a relationship for just four months.
I have BPD, but since I'm on meds it's barely noticable. Just a few depressive episodes now and then. Comparing to ten years ago I'm so much better.
I work in "public relations". That's the official and fancy description. Mostly I sit at my desk and check out Buzzfeed or something alike. I work at a place that is some kind of a theatre and has a small restaurant as well.
In my spare time I mostly watch Youtube or Netflix. But I also love to craft (knit, crochet, sew, cross stitch, craft with resin), read books (not stuck to a certain genre), play video games, listen to music and play music. My main instrument is ukulele, but I can also play a little bit of guitar and piano. I'm self-taught, so I'm not very good, but it's fun. I also like to bake and cook, though I don't do it very often.
Right now I'm preparing for NaNoWriMo. I wouldn't all myself a writer, but I've been doing this since 2005 and it's a big part of my life.
I collect books, shower gels, make-up, craft supplies, postcards and my parakeet's feathers.
I started my journal back in 2003, when you still needed an invitation to join. The past years I haven't been very active, but back then I wrote multiple times per day.
I write about my daily life, my pets, relationship stuff and post photos occasionally. To be honest, I don't know if it's that interesting. I leave that decision up to you.
Almost all of my posts are in English. Since it isn't my first language there are some grammar and spelling mistakes. Sometimes I also struggle to find the right words, so my posts may read like they were written by a kid. But it helps me a lot to improve my English skills.
Well, what kind of friends am I looking for? I don't care about age, race, sexual orientation and beliefs. I'm very open-minded and everyone will be welcome. I return I ask the same of you.
I would love to interact with you, commenting each other's entries. If I don't comment that much on yours it doesn't mean I'm not interested. Maybe I just don't know how to express what I want to say. But I read every entry that doesn't slip my sight.
Hooray, you've made it to the end!
If you think we would get along feel free to add me! Bring some life to my friends list.
Also, if you have any questions before adding, feel free to ask!
