Hi, I'm Nadine Heather.

I'm definitely not new to livejournal but my life's going through one of those definite new starts where I thought a whole new journal would be appropriate, and along with it some new friends. 

I'm twenty years old and live in Aldershot, Hampshire in England.

I'm in my second year of university studying Criminology and Sociology and honestly think that my degree is the most fascinating subject there is. 

I'm a big family-and-friends kind of girl, they're my entire heart and soul and I'd be nowhere without them. 

I just moved back home with my parents and little sister, it's a strange experience.

I work at Blockbuster and my job's amazing. I watch films, recommend films and have some of the most awesome customers you could ask for. 

I drink Earl Grey tea, I have a passion for Shakespeare and learning about the world wars, I can't sit still without jiggling my left leg, my favourite glass is the one that has a dinosaur on it with a straw, I love going to the gym because it relaxes me, I could read all day if I had nothing else to do, I really enjoy studying and learning new things, I'm hugely ambitious but I don't know where I want that ambition to take me yet, 50% of what I learned growing up was from my Grandad and the other 50% was from my mother - they're my heroes, I'm more comfortable in stilettos than kitten heels, I have tattoos and each of them means something huge to me, I have an extremely varied taste in music and I can't tell a funny story without getting sidetracked by laughing at the ending.

I'm looking for quality over quantity - legit friendships, people that really read each other's entries. 
I'll comment if I have something to say, and stay as active as possible.

Friends

I'm 21 and recently moved to Pensylvania from Texas to live with my husband-to-be. I plan to attend law school next year to become a medical malpractice lawyer.

Fears: Not living up to people's expectatons...
Interests: books (fantasy, horror, romance, comics) , music (Lady GaGa, Paramore, etc.), mythology, history in general
Dislikes: people who pretend to be your friend for the things that you have, when your best friend randomly stops talking to you, when your sister eats the last popsicle on a 103 degree day

Hiiiiiii :3


My name is Louisa, and I am looking for new friends! I'll warn you now, sometimes I don't comment a lot, but I do read every journal entry. Sometimes I just don't know what to say, but I want to let people know that I do care. :)

I'm 22, and I live about an hour outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm a theatre major, and I love it. I want to act professionally and teach acting as well for a career, so I'm pretty passionate about the arts. I also write poetry sometimes, along with lyrics.

Interests:

-- feminism
-- politics
-- kickass people in history (Sappho, Anne Boleyn, John Keats, Emma Goldman, Rainer Maria Rilke, Evelyn Nesbit, and bell hooks are some of my idols)
-- musicals (Passing Strange, Spring Awakening, and Sunday in the Park with George are my favorites~)
-- plays (Angels in America is my favorite)
-- awesome actors/actresses (Natalie Dormer is my queen, and Hailee Steinfeld is my spirit animal, tyvm)
-- books (Cannery Row by John Steinbeck is my absolute favorite book)
-- poetry (I love Rilke, Plath, Atwood, Keats, and Yeats)
-- Greek mythology

oh boy, I just wrote a ton. :x Anyway, I hope to meet new people, and hope that people would like to meet me! :3

Winter is evil.

Well, I must admit these communities usually seem like a desperate cry for attention and maybe in some cases, they are. However, I've also realized they are good for people like me...those who may have social anxieties, be a bit anti-social, or otherwise not the greatest at striking up conversations with strangers. That being said, here's my futile attempt at an intro...

I'm 28, live in PA, and happily in a neverending relationship.

I'll say right now that I am pagan (no specific path, more a massive mixture of things). If you have a problem with this, please don't respond. I've received enough crap from people over the years in regards to my "beliefs", and am in no tolerable mood for any more of that.

Aside from that, I like a variety of weird stuff. I have several tattoos, including GIR (my icon). I go to renfaires and dress up as a pirate. I collect sharp weapons. I like chocolate. I like to travel. I have a nature photography business and work on other crafty things (web design, sewing, candle making, etc.). I do indoor gardening, but not that well. I have a few animals living with me (dogs and kitten) and I hate winter. I like hiking and camping. I like roller coasters. And my TV show addiction is Criminal Minds.

My favorite author is Neil Gaiman (who I've seen live) and as such, I like similar types of work (Lord of the Rings, the Golden Compass trilogy, Eragon Saga, Inkheart trilogy, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, etc.). Movies are generally the same, and include (but are not limited to) those based off Neil's books, Tim Burton movies, muppets, The Simpsons Movie, Van Helsing, Underworld trilogy, The Princess Bride, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.

As for music, that covers a vast range of mainly rock, industrial and folk type music. Some of my favorite bands include: Ego Likeness, Voltaire, Omnia, Faun, The Dreamside, Tori Amos, Assemblage 23, The Gypsy Nomads, David Bowie, Tool, The Dresden Dolls, Combichrist, KMFDM, The 69 Eyes, The Cruxshadows, and similar artists.

I can't stand stupidity, I think the Twilight series is absolute crap, and "reality TV shows" are anything but real (if you want reality, watch the news). I am not vegan (in other words, meat is tasty), but I support green living (which a lot of people seem to have an issue with). In fact, I'm very fierce about my environmental views. I hate cars, don't drive, and never intend to.

Obviously, I'm here seeking friends. By this I mean, people that will actually treat me as a friend--comment on posts, send messages, etc. I'm not interested in being added to a list of several hundred people and forgotten about--that's not really a friendship. I'm hoping to at least find people with common interests, if nothing more. If you want to know more, just check my profile/journal.
