musochild

je m'appelle Claire

right now, it's 2.42 am, so you could possibly infer that 
a) I'm an insomniac
b) I like seeing who else in my time zone are paranoid insomniacs (paranoid because it just belongs with the word insomniac)
c) I like talking to people who are not in my time zone.

All of which are true.

This time zone, by the way, is that of Syd-er-knee, Ostraya! (Or just...you know...Sydney, Australia, to normal people.) I am 18 going on 19, 24, or 3, depending on my state of mind, I am mildly crazy, and I'm a muso.
At the moment I'm on a minorly huge Lord of the Rings kick, so bear with me. Please. I also love Harry Potter, Agatha Christie, NCIS and South Africa, as well as having a slight obsession with the ins and outs of the human body. I am the sort of person who goes around asking the weird questions, like what order the cranial membranes go in, and what the actual composition of anfo is, and how many more pictures can go up in my room before the walls fall down. (Answer: very few.)

Down to normal details? I like reading, cooking, singing, chattering in French to anyone in earshot and going barefoot. I spend a lot of time singing. My life is actually quite normal, but my LJ won't attest to it because lately I've only been writing in states of joy or despair. (Working on it.) I have a younger sister who is chalk to my cheese and is obsessed with Victoria's Secret, a ridiculously wonderful boyfriend who is in the Australian Army (cue look of pride) and is alternately obsessed with being in a band, making movies and chocolate freckles, and two rather long-suffering and beloved parents. Mum tries to put up with my rantings re literature and life, and Dad does a very good job of not looking terrified when he's teaching me to drive. I'm a second-year uni student, probably majoring in English, and I've no idea what to do with my life. Story of.

I like interesting people so if you are interesting, please add me :) if you are not, add anyway and I'll proceed to convince you that you are the most interesting person I've ever met xD

In which I ramble about myself

 I stumbled upon this community today and decided to join in. Forgive me if I ramble.

- I am a college student.

- I am relatively new to livejournal.

- I am an aspiring writer, I love writing and constantly seek to improve.

- I am also a bit of an artist. I've loved drawing ever since I was a kid and I've entered my art in many contests

- I love reading. I can read almost anything, but I have a few favorite genres. I've always loved post-apocalyptic and sci-fi works, with horror being a close second favorite.

- I'm not much of a political person, I don't mind talking about politics as long as the conversation doesn't get out of hand, but once people start name-calling and throwing insults, I want out.

- I love music, I can listen to almost anything and enjoy it. I'm willing to try any group or genre once. Some of my favorite groups are Radiohead, Pink Floyd, They Might Be Giants, The Beatles, and Modest Mouse.

- I like to consider myself an open minded person, I can get along with a lot of people and I enjoy talking with people. I try my best to hold no prejudices against anyone.

- I am a bit of a gamer.

yo, add me (:

Hello All!!!!
    Okay, I'll be honest- I'm not that perky in the morning. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just not my cup of tea.

    I am Jokester: other known alias': Joker, Kester, Jester- or any other way you could perform a typo or shorten my name(lol.) 

 

My name is Jokester (for obvious reasons) but I answer to "Hey you!" and "You son of a _________!" just the same.

As of now, I am sitting at the dining room table listening to the sounds of Dora the Explorer excaping my living room. In addition to that gem, I have a four-year-old little girl sitting here talking my ear off, refusing to go watch the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon. Why do parents buy televisions? Why do parents pay cable or satellite television bills? Just as with Tootie Pops: The world may never know.

I love my kids- I hate other peoples'. Sometimes when I look at other people's kids I can truly understand why some parents drown their young. I know it sounds mean but its how I feel. I have informed all of my close friends and family that they are to never choose or appoint me as a Godparent (or whatever that shit is they do.) I will raise my own and after that I AM DONE! :)

As I'm sure you've observed I am brutally honest most of the time. The other small percentage of time I am swimming in my neverending stream of thoughts. My brain literally never stops.

I don't have too many friends as I don't work and have been out of highschool for quite some time now. I went to college for some time. Accumulated quite a bit of credits and also a great big helping of Debt with that. I still haven't decided what I want to do. Hence, the reason I have no degree yet. :/ It will all come together when it is time, I suppose.

Everything happens for a reason.

Or rather I hope it does. LOL Otherwise I am going to be quite the spectacle on Judgement Day. While on topic, I have no specified religion as I do not know anything about any of them that makes me proud to want to label myself part of their church or cult or what-have-you. LOL, sorry I had to.

My journal will be a little bit of this mixed with a dash of that. Follow if you wish but I will warn you; my writing can be as boring, awesome or obnoxious as YOU want it to be :). My journal will contain cute and cheery things as well as ugly and dark moments. Everyone has them- it's whether or not you think you can fly that distinguishes you from the other ones... Bottom line here is that I am not perfect and I will not sugarcoat shit here. Oh, and sometimes I cuss like a sailor. This would indicate some frustration usually. LoL.

Super, glad that is out of the way.

If you haven't yet noticed, I am procrastinating so badly right now. Therefore, you have been subjected to my constant rambling.

Some stuffs about me:

I love singing my favorite songs really loud when no one is home.

If you are a member of the animal race- I <3 you.

I have 4 dogs- 2 cats- and 3 kids running around here. (don't worry, I'm not one of those out-of-control animal hoarders like on T.V.)

I have been and always will be with the love of my life, 9 years and going strong.

I'm recovering from an addiction to all of the Call of Duty games on xbox360.

I've never read a Harry Potter book, but I am secretly getting curious as to what all the hype is about.

I have balls and strong opinions with some people. With others, whom I value their friendships more, I often take the roll as the one who cannot say no.

I was bi-polar before bi-polar was bi-polar LoL. I have been diagnosed with one of the bi-polar(or manic-depressive) conditions since the age of 5. 20 some-odd years later, and still no better- but still no worse! ;)I think my diagnoses' aren't exactly right...

I get up every morning and eat a few anti-depressants and mood stabilizers so that my family can withstand the wrath that comes about when I am off of them. One missed dose, and it's all over from there.

I always second guess everything. Everyone says I read too much into things lol.

I love art & reading(though I have a very short attention-span)All music is awesome.

I wish to one day become a published novelist at the least. New York Times Best Seller wouldn't be bad either ;)... If only I could sit myself down and start tossing my ideas onto the page...

My ideas and thoughts race so fast that my hands are no match for my brain. I can never keep up with my thoughts. SO sometimes if there is an aggregious typo or grammatical error- or even missing words in my sentences- I was racing lol...

I smoke A LOT of pot. BUT HEY, I AM A RESPONSIBLE DRUG USER! lol- just kidding- drugs are no joke kids.

I'm getting quite bored as I sit here typing all of this out lol.

AND LAST of ALL: PISS ON YOUR SPELL CHECKER- I DON''T HAVE THE TIME! LMAO

There is no way I can fit myself into this one post so if there's something you are curious about or you want to make new friends- hit me up.

I'm here to write my stuff out as well as maybe form some new bonds. Only time will tell.

Until next time...

-Ciao

Hi Loves!

I'm jamz, soon-to-be 24 years old (on Friday!), and currently living in southern California.  I am, however, originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, and I suppose you can say that I've definitely "left my heart in San Francisco"... even though it's really damn corny.

I am unabashedly nerdy, obsessed with fashion and period dramas, and a voracious reader. I am also an underpaid/overworked graduate student in sociology who is currently slaving away on a master's thesis. I often flail over (1) the challenges and pitfalls of research and/or (2) the awesome progress that I am making, and the cool intellectual discoveries that I have stumbled upon.

I like, in no particular order, the following: music, fountain pens, video games and comic books (Bioware owns my soul, methinks, and the X-men are amaaaaazing), cooking fancy meals for myself, sunbathing on my deck, shoes, cocktails with my nearest and dearest, cats, dark chocolate and red wine, anything purple, historical fiction, fantasy novels, and things that sparkle. Did I also mention that I like shoes? ;)

I am known to abuse parenthetical asides (but really, I have so many tangential ideas that it is difficult to keep them to myself), cry at the simplest things (Sunsets. Disney films. Fuzzy kittens. The title credits of Ever After), drive too fast, and listen to my music too loud.

Speaking of music, I am currently obsessed with Beach House and Florence + The Machine, but my ipod is filled with everything from classical music (anything by Bach or Rachmaninoff is a favorite of mine), jazz, showtunes and movie soundtracks to terrible 90s boy bands, slow jams and R&B, glitchy electronic music, classic rock, and more.  I am a sponge for new music, and basically will listen to anything that my friends throw my way.

I use my LJ to blab about my day-to-day life (the trials and tribulations of grad school are heavily featured), and while I try to limit the number of invective-filled rants and emo sob-sessions, my self-control gets away from me at times. I do, however, attempt to employ LJ-cuts whenever possible. I also post my forays into fiction-writing to my journal, and discuss my writerly inspirations, challenges, and ideas. I love reviews and constructive criticism, so if you feel moved to offer either, I would be incredibly grateful.

I lament the limited scope that the 'about me' blurb offers, so if you're curious about anything, just ask!

Care to Stroll With Me?

I kinda suck at who I am entries, so I just copied what's on my profile page onto here. I added extras at the bottom.

"She was who she once was, but not as I had known her."

People change and I'm no exception. If you knew me from 5 years ago, 10 years ago, I'm only a small portion of that girl. I grew up. I've still got some growing up to do, but I'm finally happy with who I am. I'm finding my center and who I am without worrying about everyone else and what they think of me. I'm just me. I talk about stresses of being a parent, a wife, and a woman. I talk about sex, religious beliefs, my parenting beliefs, and my struggles with borderline personality disorder, depression, and anxiety. I talk about body image. I talk about emotions. I talk about hopes and dreams. I talk about my ups and my downs. I talk and I don't care if I offend, I just talk because that's what a journal is for. I'm abrasive and blunt, but compassionate and loving. I am a contradiction, but aren't we all?

"I'm just a f***ed up girl looking for my own piece of mind. I'm not perfect." -Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I have two beautiful little boys- Gavin and Griffin. They're my life and I love them beyond words. I may be many things, but I'm a mom first and foremost. I always will be.

Sometimes life is messy, but that's what life's meant to be. Someday I'll find a way to clean and organize it. For right now, I'm just trying to get through it. I'm rambling through the woods of my mind... care to stroll with me?

----
Extras: I'm a geek. I love table top gaming, especially D&D. I'm obsessed with Scotland and the Celtic heritage. I'm learning Gaelic right now. I love mythological creatures, especially unicorns. When people say what I'm most like, they describe an old Irish faerie. I'm called the fire faerie and people say to beware my wrath. "I can be your best friend or your worst enemy." That's kind of how I am. I'm very dedicated to my friends. But if you betray me, I can be filled with a fiery wrath. I've also been compared to Anya from Buffy- the vengeance demon. I'm not the most tactful of persons and it's kind a joke with my friends, but I'm working on it in therapy.

Anything else, just feel free to ask.

Hello strangers!

Hey there!

My name is Sarah, and I'm 20 years old. I'm a second year college student studying English (literary track) in hopes to become a teacher for grades 4-8. I've been on livejournal since 2005, but please don't read back that far, because I'm sure you would find me annoying. ;P

Like almost everybody who posts in this community, I love to read. My favorite band is Death Cab for Cutie, but I also love The Hush Sound, The Spill Canvas, Avenged Sevenfold, Charlotte Sometimes, Muse, and Goo Goo Dolls just to name a few. I'm a nerd, and I'm not ashamed to admit that. I play World of Warcraft, but I swear it doesn't consume my life! I watch a few TV shows including Doctor Who, Chuck, Grey's Anatomy, 30 Rock, and I watch a lot of shows on Netflix. I'm definitely an introvert. I'm open-minded and accept everybody.

I recently lost one of my best friends, and it's hit me pretty hard, and I will often write about her so just a warning in case that will bother you. Other than that, I'm a pretty positive person. I write about school, my boyfriend, and my everyday life. I occasionally post pictures, but I seldom post pictures of myself.

If I seem interesting, don't be afraid to add me! I love making all kinds of new friends. However, please let me know if you add me by commenting here or on my friends only post. :)

If you are curious about anything, please don't hesitate to ask! ♥

All the right moves in all the wrong places.

Hallo, everybody. 83 I'm called Morgan; I'm from Maryland (specifically the Bel Air North area), and I'm nineteen, turning twenty in April. I'm FTM transgender (meaning "he", not "she"), currently pre-everything. I'm also asexual and freshly single. I have two pets, a teddy bear hamster named Garrett and a bearded dragon named Buddy, but I really want a dog. One of these days! I work as a cashier at PetSmart, and I love it there. Who wouldn't love being able to pet cute puppy dogs all day?

I'm sure this comes as a surprise to no one, but I absolutely love to read. As of now, I'm actively reading Mary Renault's The Persian Boy, but I'm also in the middle of Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon, Cherith Baldry's Exiled from Camelot, and Bruce Coville's Dark Whispers. I write as well, mainly short stories and vignettes, but I'm working on a novel trilogy focusing on Sir Mordred of Arthurian lore. Music-wise, I guess my tastes are pretty obscure, but also fairly eclectic. My favorite artists include Heather Dale, Kate Rusby, Indica, Cathie Ryan, Fireal, Oomph!, Flyleaf, and Alanis Morissette. At the same time, I also listen to the likes of Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, and Three Days Grace, with the occasional Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

I have a pretty laid-back personality, but I also suffer from major depressive disorder, so I have periods of angsty self-hatred and crippling sadness. These are getting less frequent, however, which is a good thing. I absolutely love meeting new people, and if anyone decides to add me from here, I'd love if they would actually talk to me so we could hopefully get to be friends.

If you add me, please comment saying so, thanks!

Meet Dash

I am dash, I am the only me (or I hope so for other peoples sanity) ... I am fun loving and insane (positive insane not creepy stalker insane).  I love writing, books, animals, music, movies, outdoors and arty/crafty stuff.  I am an animal scientist (dont worry I'm not into the whole testing on animals cruel stuff) who is doing honours in Cattle genetics. I love studying animals and learning about them.  No an animal scientist is not training to be a vet, in fact it is completely different.  Who knows where I'll end up but theres all sorts of job that it can lead to such as a nutritionalist (doing things like forming those special diets for dogs and cats), genetics, behaivour, animal anatomy and physiology, reproduction research, animal health or who knows what else :~D

My favorite authors are currently Isobelle Carmody, Diana Wynne Jones, JK Rowling, Terry Pratchett, Brian Jaques, Tamora Peirce, Maria V. Snyder and Victor Kelleher.  I love the fantasy genre, and am currently reading Son of a Which (the sequel to wicked).  I would have to say Wicked had me engrossed but it was interesting cos I wouldnt say I loved it nor did I hate it ... It was life changing though (for me).  I've read many books from the point of veiw of the "bad guy" but this was the first one which has really nmotivated me to look at things from both sides before judging, jumping to conclusions or arguing.  I am also hooked on the Tomorrow When the War Began series, although the Ellie Chronicals to follow were no where near as good.

I like all sorts of TV shows and Movies.  Disney is a big thing for me and always has been ... I like the original disneys better but some of the new stuff is pretty decent too.  I esspecially like romance and comedies when it comes to movies.  And with regard to tv I HAVE to watch Greys Anatomy, Bones, Good News Week (a weekly Australian comedy quiz show with famous people) and Law & Order: SVU.  I will watch most other crime shows and comedy.  I'm not really one for the soapies, and have weaned myself off Neighbours because although its addictive its really dodgy repetitive story lines.  I am also into anime, Howels Moving Castle, My Neighbour Totoro, Kikis delivering service, Ponyo, Please Teacher and Azu Manga Diaoh are a few of my favorites. 

And music wise I'll listen to anything pretty much.  Country, 50's and Classic are the ones I tend to favour but I do have a very open mind and will give anything a listen once.  I also can be found bying the soundtracks to most movies including disney ... esspecially disney!

My love of arty/crafty stuff involves scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, making things, drawing, beading, long stich and cross stich although I go through phases of each.  Currently its making things.  I am making a Medusa costume for my friends 21st.  I also enjoy writing, mostly poetry but I do come up with a lot of stories, however most end up as short snippets of writing usually descriptive.

Oh and I sometimes take to talking about myself in third person. :~D

Oh yeah how could I forget I also love ballroom dancing (been doing it over 2years now).  The place I dance teaches Waltz, Foxtort, Rhumba, Tango, Cha Cha, Viannesse Waltz, Samba and my all time favorite Jive!!! ... I really do believe I have been born in the wrong era ... Maybe 50s suits me better.  I love the dresses and its so me!

Thats about from me

New To LJ:-) Add Me?

Hello! My name is Kayla, I'm sixteen years of age and I am terrible at writing introductions for myself. But I'll give it a shot anyways!
Okay, so for starters, I'd like to say that I am new to LJ. I actually just made one yesterday haha. So I'm still trying to figure out how everything works and what not. It can't be that hard to figure out.. Right?

Well anyways.. Here's a little bit about myself.
I live for music. Practically all my life I have been surrounded by it. I've learned that people aren't always gonna be there for you, but no matter what, at the end of everyday, music still is. I'm trying my hardest to become a musician. So I'm currently being homeschooled to focus more on pursuing that dream. I get embarrassed extremely easy, I don't know why. I do not attend church every Wednesday nor every Sunday. In fact, sadly enough, I don't attend church that often at all:-( BUT I'm still a strong believer in God. I believe everything happens for a reason and that God will never take anything away from you without giving you something that is so much better in return. I've gone through some pretty rough times in life, and not had many people to talk to about it that fully understand. So I figured, I'd make one of these things, and see how many people can relate to the stuff I've been through and vice versa. With that being said, most of my blogs will be kind of like a diary I guess you could say? There will be a lot of positive posts and a lot of not so positive posts too. Politics absolutely bore me to tears. I'd rather punch myself in the face then have to sit and listen to someone go on and on about it. I love love love love fashion <3 And I'm absolutely fascinated by photography. Summer is my favorite season and time of year. I love the color yellow it's my favorite. I love meeting/talking to new people. I love reading, occasionally. I'm a huge fan of football. I couldn't live without coffee. I have really bad ADHD, that I have to take medicine for. But it seems like everyone has it these days..? I can't stand constantly negative people. I mean, we all have our days, but come on! Really? Hm.. I have really bad needlephobia and arachnophobia. And I absolutely adore animals. That's all I'm typing for now.

If you find me at all interesting or "friendable", please add me or message/comment me.
I promise to always add back/reply:-)

Hello

 Hi all! I'm 21, 22 in March. I use my journal to talk about everyday things and to also post my art (paintings, photography, anything really!) I am doing a 365project (a photo a day, if you didn't know) in honor of a good friend that passed away 3 years ago due to cystic fibrosis. 50% of the profit I make with the sold prints are going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of him. :)  Otherwise, I'm married, no kiddos yet. Hubby won't let me. We do however have two kitties. :) Add me if you want, I don't have any "restrictions" or what not. :/ I'll add you back! :)

Oh, and this is me:

Heyo!

Hello everyone. My real name is Billy, though I sometimes use Jessica, and I am 23 years old and living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I am transgender, being born male but having always identified with females. I still am male in appearance, and I can't see that changing anytime soon.

I'm usually shy, but when I get to know someone I get out from my shell, to the point where it's hard to shut me up. I enjoy learning about the world and all its cultures, religions, histories, and languages. I am only fluent in my native English, however, but I'm working on getting a conversational knowledge of a few others, especially French & Russian.

I've taken Aerospace Engineering and Computer Science as majors in school, though I'm still looking for that which I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. I have interests in vastly different fields, from ancient history to subatomic physics, that I can't just see myself settling with one thing. Though I do enjoy writing, and I would love it if I could find a career in that, allowing me to write about all the things I enjoy. I have some fanfiction online, and I'm looking forward to getting my blog up and running as well.

And now for some favourites:

TV: Gossip Girl, Chuck, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Stargate, Fringe, Lost, Alias

Hey you guys!

So... what to say?!

My name's Laura, and I'm 25 from Hampshire, England. I've been on LJ for about 8 years on and off (definitely more off, up until recently!). I've got myself a paid account again, so I'm determined to update more, and I'd like more friends to share my entries with, and give me something interesting to read so I stick around.

I am into MANY things, obviously too many to list here, but my main passions are my cats, my boyfriend, reading and all things beautiful that catch my eye (I'm a pretty icon fiend - I love collecting them). Music wise I have extremely varied tastes, but I'm always in love with Mumford and Sons, Pink Floyd, Tracy Chapman, the Prodigy, Nat King Cole, Biffy Clyro, Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music, drum and bass, Tori Amos and tons more.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I do love Grey's Anatomy and the Mighty Boosh (are they ever gonna bring out a 4th series?!). I love Harry Potter, and can quite happily retreat into the world of Hogwarts via books, films or the internet.

I also enjoy simple pleasures, such as a long walk on a gorgeous day, Jack Daniels, hot chocolate, fast cars, buttery toast, and Lewis Hamilton (*swoon*!!).

My existing friend's list contains people from all walks of life, and I'm pretty sure that unless you TypE Lyk DIs and can't spell, or you try to ram your beliefs down my throat (religious or otherwise), we'll get along just fine. :-)

So please feel free to comment here or at my journal if you're going to add me. The more the merrier. I love meeting new friends on LJ, and I WILL comment on your entries from time to time.

That is all!! :-)

Hello, my name is Huushi. I'll be thirty-one in just two weeks. I'm your stereotypical Pisces as my head is always in the clouds, I'm extremely empathic, very shy, dreamy, and highly creative. If I'm not writing on any particular story or novella, I'm beading, or singing, or trying to knit or trying to draw/paint on canvas boards with any medium known to man. Key word, trying. I can't draw, but I still enjoy doing it!

I'm a very romantic sap. I am extremely open on lj, and the topics range from sex, to work, to real life, to the memes going around, to whatever really. I'm really not shy when it comes to any of these topics, though I do ask all to respect myself and each other when discussing key topics.

I work retail, so often vent about that. I''m currently trying to find my dream job, but ... obviously if I'm still in retail, it's not exactly going as planned. That's okay. I'm very impatient.

I have a very interesting sense of humour.

I ramble a lot. I am also incredibly random. I will forget what the point of X is and then remember five minutes (or ten hours) later.

Also, I'm very emotional. One can say emo, as I've latched onto that, but it's a more intellectual emo than anything. I don't know what that means either, but it sounds cool. I'm very esoteric, like the creepier side of life, all things nature, all things spiritual whether you're a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, insert your choice of religion here. I term myself an Eclectic Pagan.

I obsess easily. And worry far more than I should. I'm striving to be the best person I can be, and it's been such a rocky and hard road for me, but I've come a long way, and I'm proud of it. I have a boyfriend of three years, and I talk a LOT about him, as he's very near and dear to me, obviously. :)

I am intelligent in some aspects, but can be rather not in others. I'm okay with that, or working towards getting there. Self-discovery is a huge thing of mine, a passion that drives me forward in life. Because of that, I do not like negative people, nor do I like people that bully or harass others so that they may feel better about themselves.

I used to identify myself as bisexual for a long time. Now, I can barely tolerate labels but I must for society as a general whole needs labels in order to function. However, for those that do need labels, I'm pansexual. If you look at me you will see female. I am rather femme looking, one could say pretty. I look at myself, and I just see me. I'm not female, nor am I am male. I view myself as both. There's more on this particular topic in my lj, but you must be friended by me in order to view.

I'm an icon whore. I love music, reading, writing far too much. I love knowledge and meeting people to a certain degree.

One last thing. For those that are interested and have taken a look at my profile and have seen some restrictions, I have been known to bend them on occasions such as this. I try not to be elitist, so if you read anything that may seem off-putting, msg me via lj and we'll talk about it so that we both have an understanding. :)

there's a light bulb dangling from string, it's slowly swaying up over my head now.

Hello (:

I'm Cara, I'm 17 and I'm from England. I go to college and study A-Levels in Film, English, Media and Sociology, all that jazz.

About me? What can I say, I'm a bundle of contradictions, I find that when describing myself I make very little sense at all. I'm an introvert. I live inside my head and am constantly living out different fantasies, which sometimes translates over to how I act in reality. I am actually very realistic, but I do have a tendency to romanticise things. Fictional worlds seem more real to me than the one I am living in. I get insanely attached to fictional characters to the point where many of them are more important to me than people I know in real life. I'm not sure whether that's odd or not.

I've probably come off incredibly dreamy in that paragraph, but that's not really me at all. I do have my head screwed on and I am by no means stupid. I kno
w a lot more than I let on. I think a lot. I'm very independent. I am fiercely guarded and it does me no good. I can be too controlling when I care about something. I'm very genuine in the way I act towards others, though perhaps not so much in the way I present myself. I'm comfortable with myself in ways but also pretty insecure. I like myself but I don't expect others to, even when there is evidence to the contrary.

I don't judge and am very open-minded. I never, ever take people on face value. I believe that we're all the same when it comes down to it. Perhaps it sounds cliched but in the past 6 months or so I have come to realise that forgiveness is one of the most important things, and I no longer hold on to grudges or become bitter. I try not to take things so personally - we're all only human and controlled by our irrational emotions, after all. I am creative and imaginitive and I love to read and write. Reading and writing is my thing more than anything else, even though I have always harboured secret desires to be a performer, something which I hope I will someday have the courage to pursue, even though I'm probably not good at it.


I love to pretend. I live my life like it is one big movie, one big tv show, and I'm the main character. Which is probably awfully narcississtic but oh well. This bleeds into my fashion sense, as I love to feel like I'm in fancy dress. Sometimes I wear really stupid things and not necessarily because I like them, but because I like feeling like a certain person in them. For example, oh, today, I'm the kind of person that goes out wearing such-and-such! In some ways I'm mature but a lot of the time I just feel like a little girl pretending to be adult, a bit in over my head. And I wonder if everyone else is just pretending too, and if maybe everyone is lost and unsure, but I guess I'll never know. I am very contemplative, always reminiscing about the past.

I'm incredibly self-absorbed, as is probably obvious from this description, and I'm not sure whether that comes from my being a teenager or is just part of my introspective nature. I'm a very quiet person in real life and barely ever talk about myself, even when prompted, so LJ is kind of of an outlet for that. However, I am also very interested in others and I will always read your entries and be there for you. I have met some wonderful people on LJ and I honestly do not know what I would do without them.

My number one fandom is Skins, which has been a big part of my life ever since I was 13. Maybe that sounds sad, but it's accompanied me through my teenage years and has just always...been there. The characters are my friends, the storylines are ones I can relate to. It's had a big effect on me and I am sure my life would not be the same without it.

If you have stuck around for my endless rambling, you might be interested in some of my favourites. Just so you know if we have some things in common:


TV Shows: Skins, That 70's Show, The OC, Misfits, Gossip Girl, The Inbetweeners, The X Factor, Being Human, 90210, The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Big Brother, Glee, Friends.

Books: The Outcast - Sadie Jones, Little Women - Louisa M. Alcott, Lucas - Kevin Brooks, Memoirs Of A Geisha - Arthur Golding, The Story Of My Face - Kathy Page, Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte, Just Listen - Sarah Dessen, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer, Harry Potter of course, etc.

Films: The Boat That Rocked, Lost In Translation, Adventureland, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Breakfast At Tiffany's, an abundance of trashy chick flicks, Vicky Cristina Barcelona etc.

Music: Mumford and Sons, Vampire Weekend, The Smiths, The Cure, Marina and the Diamonds, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, The Beatles, John Lennon, The Virgins, pretty much everything ever used on the Skins soundtrack (Skins is music education ftw!) etc.

This was meant to be a short post but that didn't turn out well, apparently. I mostly post about my life, myself and my general thoughts on the world and the people around me, although I also sometimes post fandom-related things. My LJ friends are all very important to me and I love chatting to them on a regular basis, and am always there for them if they need me. If you share any of my interests, or anything in common with me (or not!), and don't mind my incessant rambling, then please add me!

Hi! My names Rachel Jetpack, I'm a 20 year old Gemini living in California. Currently a community college student majoring in Liberal Studies, an I have a boyfriend of over 2 years named Neil (who is awesome, btw)

I'm really active on Livejournal and love making new friends and commenting. You can check out my journal for public entries (I post 1 public entry a week, but the majority of posts are friends only). I'm also on Tumblr if you'd like to add me there!

My tastes lean on the nerdy side, I really love science fiction, greek mythology, video games and cartoons. I am a Pokemon TCG player. I'm a bit of an indulgent eater, often posting what I've eaten or baked that day. And I'm a craftster, I dabble in many types of art but mostly focus on duct tape crafts. I have an Etsy store if you'd like to check out what I make. I also do community theater, and recently joined a roller derby team! I'm really outspoken and have strong political and philosophical views, but I don't share them very often.

On my journal you'll find a lot of optimism, I try to keep the whining to a minimum but it happens occasionally. Other than that, I talk about my various adventures. I have a very thorough Intro in my journal if you'd like to know more about me!

If you think we have things in common and would like to read my journal, feel free to add me and I'll do the same for you! Don't forget to tell me a little about yourself on here or on my journal.

Thanks guys!

Good day, world! ^^

Hello there everybody!

I am currently looking for new friends - not for the sake of having the biggest friendslist evar, but more for getting to know new people who share my interests and are kind-hearted souls all in all ^^. Okay, I should introduce myself first I think :

Please call me Rina. I am currently 26 years old, but this will change in May :). I live in Cologne which is located in Germany, aaand I am studying at university (my majors are Musicology and Japanese studies!). My interests? It is hard to tell you about all of them, but I will try to give you an idea ... I LOVE music in all kinds of sorts. I actually write my own one :D, and as for the music I listen to ... I wouldn*t call myself close-minded concerning that; I see no borders of music ^^, so I also listen to music from several "foreign" countries. Yes, Japanese music belongs to that, but it is not all. For more information, visit my profile, or see my wonderful selection of music I listen to here (last*fm).

I am also interested in drawing (I am currently working on finishing one of these art memes ^^), writing (apart from songtexts, I also write poems and stories), designing clothes, homepages, and so on ... ^^ I also love watching good movies, and I don*t know how I should describe those I like ... Most of them have a surreal touch, though. I can also be found practicing some instruments (mainly the guitar (both electric and acoustic) and the hichiriki), and singing - I also don*t fear doing so as I walk along ... I like taking long walks.

Apart from this, I like learning languages and traveling. Currently, I am working on my Japanese as you might have guessed, but I also love Finnish, Spanish, French, and I*d LOVE to learn Bislama, Swedish, Turkish, and so on ^^!

Not to mention I have a strong love for many things belonging to the "esoteric" corner. I also sometimes talk about it in my LJ (Which is to say : I herewith warn you!). This mainly includes astrology, Chinese astrology, tarot, Lenormand card readings, numerology, palmistry, and so on and so on. I am also interested in paranormal phenomena.

So, that*s about all for me. Please have a look at my profile or ask if you want to get to know me better!

And what about you? YOU should be around my age, even though I am not that much focused on this aspect. I just don*t want to bore anybody because some might find my babbling childish (and they are right!), and some may find it boring because I am oh-so old (... THAT*S NOT TRUE!! :P). You should be breathing, preferably human, kind, creative, sensitive, authentic, open-minded, and interested in similar things. I don*t care where you are from, as long as I*d be able to understand what you are writing ...

And that*s about that. Thanks for reading!

Hey there! :)


“The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 to heterosexuals. This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals, it's just that they need more supervision.”

 Corinne | 21 | feminist | bisexual


Some facts about me:

-         I’m a vegan.

-         I’ve always loved to travel. I love seing new countries, meeting new people, getting to know different cultures,… There are so many places on this planet that I haven’t seen yet and so many things to explore. Who lives sees much. Who travels sees more.

-         I never miss an episode of Austria’s Next Topmodel, because I have a crush on the host.

-         I started playing the violin when I was four years old

-         I’m addicted to coffee

-         When I was ten and my friends were all crushing on Harry Potter,Ron Weasleyor Draco Malfoy, I totally fell in love with Hermione Granger.

-         I listen to all kinds of music. Some of my favorite musicians are are: AFI, Bob Dylan, Billy Talent, The Kooks, David Bowie, Linkin Park, The Beatles, Shantel, The Cure, Blur, Saosin, Daft Punk,…

-         I’m studying both Educational Science and Photography, which is a strange combination and totally time consuming. Currently working on my bachelor thesis. >.<

-         I like my cats more than most human beings

-         I work part-time at a mental hospital

-         Some of the worst mistakes in my life have been haircuts.

-         My family means everything to me

-         I’m obsessed with fashion

-         Favourite movies: Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, Everything is illuminated, The Hitchhikter’s Guide to the Galaxy, Milk, Into the Wild…

-         I love reading, although at the moment I don’t really have time for it. Extremely loud and incredibly close, Thinking straight, When I was 5 I killed myself, The importance of being Earnest, The Lord of the Rings, ,…

-         I’m in love with Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. ;-)
 

I try to write about positive things in my journal, but there might be times when my posts get a bit… emo. I’m sorry about that, but I just lost my twin about a year ago and I don’t think I’ll ever really get over it. But I don’t talk about it that often, so don’t worry :)

I'm addicted to reading and commenting on friend's journals, especially when I should be working for university. :)

If we have something in common, or you just think we might like each other – just add me, I promise to add you back as soon as possible.


ohh

Hello strangers c:


Hello hello,

I am here to write something so magical about myself that you will believe that we ought to be friends and will stay around to chat, so lets get started. I will be entering university in two weeks to study Psychology and Counselling although really I only want to be a counsellor :] I have always been keen to learn and will always love learning something new for the pure joy of it. Will never be the greatest sports soul however I love to play a round of tennis, badminton, basketball and surfing. Not that I'm some sports buff! OH NO. I am more a proud book reader, terrible gamer and sweet baker sort of person. Who likes to run at 5am in the morning for two hours when she's not busy. Busy with rearranging her room or dancing. Yes I love to dance and rearrange things.

So here is a little key to me; you like these next things, we will have plenty to talk on. Infact. On principle, anyone who likes Harry Potter is my friend ;]

Interests/Big Loves ~ * Reading * Baking * Harry Potter * Anime * Gardening * Dancing * Lolita *

And yes I cosplay , collect show merchandise , sit in the rain and love to listen to people.

Reading this back over it is all over the place. Thing is I'm only going to talk about something if you let me, so don't be scared that I am soul focussed upon Harry Potter. Or co-ordinating a new JSK. Or baking the most calorie filled cupcake ever. And that's all you hear about. I guess I mean I can hold up more than the small talk on most things c: My LJ isn't specific, only what catches me at that moment. Just like me :D

Hi all~found this comm in the spotlight, and since i had some luck in another friending comm i've been in for awhile, i thought i'd try here! its seems awful busy too, so here's to hoping :)b i'm always weary when i post, but so far i havent found anyone that i really DON'T get along with..

I've been on LJ for quite some time- I have about 50 people on my f-list, but only a small handful actually update rather often. (it gets drepssing not seeing something new on the feed for like, over a day, ok? ha) so i'm looking to meet some new people with maybe some simliar interests.
 

So i'm not going to go about saying i'm a big anything, what 'drives me and is my passion!'; i'm not a unique little snowflake. i just do whatever day by day to get by and maybe try to have some fun doing it! i've come to terms with just working and chilling out and being a semi-deadbeat. :) i went to college for awhile and have a basic degree...thing, but due to lots of things i just dont want to move off and get into loads of debt to continue on with what i'd sort of like to do, espcially when life right now has that 'if its not broken, don't fix it' vibe. oh i'm a chick, by the way. straight, single, if that makes any difference to anyone. live in Oregon, USA.

my journal entries consist of my rambling randomness, and actually, most of them dont even have real structure. which i sort of feel bad about sometimes, but whatever. i try to type with proper grammar and spelling but yea-- its sort of everywhere, like my brain, i suppose! people tell me i type how i talk, so there we go. so right now, this whole intro thing is like, a total 'lie' of what i normally type like 8) i do use bullets to keep things in check and on subject tho so it wont make you so lost. ;D

the rambling randomness consists of me loling over stupid things at my work or coworkers (i work in a grocery store in a rather small town for the last 8 years-9 this May-ive got stories! people don't surprise me anymore 8D) loling over stupid musican-related crap, my shopping adventures, concert adventures, my cats, random pictures of stuff, or just...yeah. its not a blog of awesome thoughtfulness or philisophical things. ;)b

the type of music i dig; any and all, really. mostly i lean torwards the Japanese music industry (a bit of the mainstream, and not so mainstream ---but no popmusic groups like AKB48 or Johnny's, plzthanks) but i do like my Lady Gaga, The Killers, Lifehouse, and Rise Against. I enjoy classical music too (mostly just piano but i do like opera) i've lately been grabbing just about anything to see if i like it or not-at least so i can have an opion-like i just recently snagged a new album from some French-Canadian chick and i really dig it.

hobbies/loves/interests: concerts, reading, writing, social networking shit, piano, playing around in audio editing programs, photography, CURRY! (well, japanese curry, anyway), cooking, shopping, tv (i watch cartoons. and stuff.) shiny cute things that i don't need but really want, zombies, video games, my passport.

I'm pretty nice. down to earth, and find almost anything pretty damn funny as long as it has some sort of wit to it. I'm quite old enough to get into bars. The random flailing of certain things happens with me, but nothing that even borderlines weird!obsessive or just plan stupid that makes you want to punch me in the face. i make fun of my own idols without mercy, you know. hoho. i use cuts alot so for the most part, unless you click on something you're spared from blinding annoying-ness until you're ready to deal with it.

yeah that's about it. i sort of sound like an ass in this, but i'm not really. ;)b i swear.

and now ima post this and not read it again, becauase i'll probably get tempted to go edit and add and take away things and...yeah. 8)

Collapse )


[edit] oh yeah; please shoot me a message somewhere to let me know if you added me or would like to add me :) (here in a comment, my friends only post, or a private message. just somehwere...) seriously, i wont add you back if you dont tell me you're a real person, at least. :(

Best Idea For a LJ Comm Ever!

Mae govannen! I am Jessica, and I'm looking for some more folks to add to the friends list. I'm a 22 year old schizophrenic(well medicated) living in a small Utah town(three guesses as to what my religion is). I am originally from Florida, though. I still live with my parents(see above mental health problem for the reason), siblings, and Shih-Tzu/Poodle mix named Joey.

My main passion in life at the moment is the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. I've also been on a bit of a Hetalia kick lately. Other interests include LOTRO, Kingdom Hearts, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a whole bunch of other stuff!

In my LJ you'll mostly be finding random musings on life, as well as fanfiction, mostly crossovers. I am a sucker for a good crossover.

So if you think you might like listening to the half crazy ramblings of this person, feel free to add me!

so, who is this crazy girl?

Hello! I thought I'd introduce myself here (:

My name is Elle and I am turning 20 in April. I'm going to Paris [France] for my birthday and I am so excited about that!

I love to travel! I currently live in England and have also lived in Russia, The Netherlands & The Philippines. I worked abroad in Turkey then Switzerland and spent some time in Ireland during a summer. I've travelled to many more countries. I hope to travel a lot more.

I love to learn new languages and can speak a few- not fluently, unfortunately. xD.

I have many hobbies & interests- performing arts, photography, graphic design, web design, Egyptology, Archaeology, psychology, film, music and I enjoy going out, hanging out with my friends, meeting new people & having an amazing life!

I'm creative, talkative, opinionated and independant. I find it very easy making new friends and am an open person. I try to be as honest as I can- and can sometimes across as being a bit too brutally honest >.< I'm a diverse person & want do a lot of things in life, learn many things and take the amazing opportunities that come my way. It's good to be optimistic about life <3

Hopefully I can make new friends on here (:
Leave me a comment, add me to friends, etc. and I'll do the same back!

Want to know anything else?I dare you to ask me! I only bite a little ^.^

Me!

Hello there. I'm Adrian, I'm 21 and obsessed with one or more or several or less of the following: oranges, Kirby, retro video games, 80s metal, piano, mathematics, Kirby, Disney, Animorphs and logic. I'm introverted, slightly mad in three ears, and I think my guitar needs new strings because I've shredded them to pieces lately.

I don't think there's much more to me. Most of my posts are unintelligible rants about video games you won't have heard of.
Also, I'm invisible so you won't notice me anyway. See? I don't even have a userpic. Woo woo.

But if you SOMEHOW feel compelled to be my friend in the face of such evidence, by all means, add me.

And I did mention Kirby.

Ahola~ (props if you get this)

I'm a 22 year old girl from Houston, Texas.

I am married and have an amazing son, Aiden, who is two and the love of my life.

About me: I enjoy languages (ie: Mandarin, Korean, Russian, German, etc) I also love music, writing, watching shows and fandom.

My journal consists of rants/spazzes, so be forewarned. :)

I am very friendly and of you want to, you can add me on facebook or twitter: facebook.com/JeriGracia or @KhunToriaStan

Hiya!

Hello people:) My name is Matt and I am from Tennessee! I'm 16 years old, and I know thats young, but I hope my age doesn't draw me back from making friends. I love making new friends, and I want to have some that I don't see everyday! Its hard to find friends you have something in common with, so I joined LJ to hopefully find some, which I am new to by the way:)

Anyways about me though.... I LOVE to act! I really like being on stage and performing plays. I'm funny, outgoing, and I can be shy at first but when you get to know me I'm crazy!! I also love photography, I believe the best form of memories are existent in photos. I mostly do nature shots when I travel to new places. I like spending time in the mountains, hiking, biking, and skiing. I'm a very fun person to be around, and I am someone that can make you laugh your ass off if your having a really bad day.

What do I write about? Well almost anything. To be specific though I write more on debating topics, and I have a lot of arguments. I also write fictional stories, but not like magical stuff. Other than that I can write about anything. I have strong opinions, so I love putting myself out there and voicing myself.

Well there is a brief summary about me. Again, I hope my age isn't affecting who to be friends with. I want to have lots of friends I can talk to and chat with and write to. You can email me anytime at:

mattrburger@gmail.com

Or just email me through Live Journal, but anyways I don't want to wast your time. I hope I get to add you! And I hope I can talk to you soon:)

I can has friends?

Hello, everybody!  My name is Jackie, I'm 21, female, and I'm from the US.  I'm studying music performance, with a concentration in voice.  I'm a budding coloratura soprano, and someday I hope to sing for a big opera company, such as the Met or the Chicago Lyric, or somewhere more realistic...yeah!  I played flute for almost 10 years, including my first year and a half of college, before I switched my major to voice. 

I spent last semester in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, so I'm a little bit obsessed with Brazilian culture.  I speak some Portuguese, and while I don't exactly consider myself fluent, I was certainly able to find my way around.  I promise that I don't write in Portuguese in my journal--all English there. :)  But my username means "little starfruit."  I'm definitely getting into samba, axé, música popular brasileira, and even some bossa nova.  I'm not overly familiar with the genres or the artists yet, but I'm learning every day, and learning the lyrics to the songs is certainly helping me hang onto the language.

I like to cook when I have the time/energy/ingredients, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with ripping open a box of Wacky Mac macaroni and cheese in a moment of weakness.  I felt for a long time that I was too skinny, but Brazil helped change that, thanks to its cheesy bread, beans and rice, meat with every meal, and otherwise general deliciousness.  And I gained ten pounds.  It mostly went to my butt.

Other than my music classes, I'm in an archaeology/early humans and civilizations class and a beginning art class.  I love both of these classes, and will probably squee about the first one, and post pictures from the second one.

My journal doesn't have many entries yet.  I'm not new to LJ--I had another account a while back--but this journal is new, and therefore only has a few entries.  I don't have anything against the Writers Block, and that's all I've basically been doing so far.  But I do plan on updating every other day or so.  For a while it might just be the Writers Block, since I'm bad at keeping a journal without having some sort of direction, so if you add me, bear with me!

Okay, I hope that gives you some idea of who I am.  If you add me, I'll add you back!

Mmmm - pick me?

Hey, I'm Liz.  Like many here, I have been an on-and-off user of LJ (now on again since I've got a new laptop to write on).  I tend not to add many friends, but I am in the mood for more interesting things to read.  And hopefully a few people interested in what I have to say!

A bit about me:
  • I am 27 (I think - sometimes I lose track), female, short, fat, and happy.
  • I am from north MN.  I love it here.
  • I am single with no kids, and one cat.  Being a crazy cat lady is my backup plan if life doesn't work out.
  • I enjoy the fact that I'm kinda weird, but I try not to be pretentious about it.  (I like obscure music and have strange hobbies, so what!)
  • Speaking of music - I LOVE music.  I live in a town with a good local music scene and get out to see live music when I can.  I see larger shows when I can afford them (from Broadway musicals to rock concerts).  
  • And speaking of strange hobbies I like to craft things with copper and beach glass.  I also geocache.  Those are the two uncommon ones.
  • I am a novice photographer but really enjoy it; photos will pop in my journal from time to time.
  • I'm also happily nerdy/geeky/dorky.  That covers things like movies,books, and video games.  I am queen of killing zombies.
  • I'm introspective and mellow - it takes a lot to bother me.
  • I use more parenthesis than Stephen King.

What I like (in journals):
  • Discussions on philosophy and religion, as long as they are respectful.
  • Reading about other people's interesting lives and problems.
  • Artists - if you post original artwork (as long as it's not spammy) it makes me happy.
  • Literacy - too much leetspeak, netspeak, spelling/grammar errors, etc makes me grumpy.

What I dislike (in journals):

  • Kids.  Sorry, but I'm kid-free by choice and I don't much like hearing about other peoples' kids.
  • Fanfic.  It's one thing if you write/enjoy it and post it somewhere else.  But I don't really like it and don't want to see it on my friends list.
  • Too much angst and drama-making.  Having drama in your life is one thing but making it is another.
  • Immaturity - I know it's relative, but what can I say?  I expect a certain amount of non-idiocy.
  • I'm not that picky, but I like people that have a bit in common with me.

What you'll find in my journal:

  • Short narrative posts, like "this is what I did today, this is what's on my mind".
  • Musings on the ethics of situations, usually about sex.
  • Occasional photos (I've taken) that I want to share.
  • Upcoming "events" include 'Philosophy Fridays', and 'Song of the Week'.
  • Memes, only if someone on my friendslist posts one AND I find it interesting.

So...leave me a comment here, or a comment on my first journal post (most of my journal is friends-only, due to a creepy ex.)  I'm waiting to hear from you!

hiya! this is becca. i am of the female variety, eighteen years old, and while i like what i like, i'm not gonna lie, my journal is pretty much full of my angry rants at life. especially work, of which i have two jobs i need to blow steam off of. occasionally, there will be a good thing like how awesome my day was, how awesome my plans are, or how awesome it is to get things in the mail, but mostly whining. i'm not gonna lie. someday i want to be a concept artist/character designer for disney or a videogame company. i don't post very much art anymore, im never confident enough to let it leave my sketchbook.

onto the more important things like what i like.

i'm into the lolita fashion, cupcake skirts and pretty blouses, so there will be a bit of that. i'm still a sucker for almost anything sanrio. also i'm huge on disney. huge. that's probably attributed to my hobby of ljrp, where i play four going on five characters in disney_academy. enough about that though, or i'll never stop.

on the other side of the coin, i like to game, especially with my boyfriend, i absolutely love marvel comics (IRONMAN OMG), and i am a huge sucker for nerdy t-shirts as well. i always have some sort of teefury shirt coming in the mail. i play world of warcraft and i love fps and sidescrollers. my top games at the moment are marvel vs capcom 3 and halo reach.

i used to be hardcore into manga and anime, but as teenagerdom is slowly carrying on, i find myself falling out of it. my three favorites that still turn my head though are trinity blood, fullmetal alchemist and ghost in the shell.

some other specifics are audrey hepburn, liza minelli, julie andrews, robert downey jr, doctor who, sherlock holmes, grey's anatomy, knitting, embroidery, crocheting, occasional sewing, bento making, crafting and music. 

whew. that was a lot. alrighty then, add post is here. can't wait to see you on my friendslist!

Well. Hello.

I've posted here before but I am actually pretty bored at the moment (and slightly tipsy) so why not give it another go?

I'm Kate, or Katie. Whichever. I live in Montreal, which is a pretty bitchin' city, ngl. I am doing my degree in Liberal Arts, so yes, I like to read a lot of ridiculously long books and sometimes even discuss them. I tend to use British slang, which comes from my best friend being English, so he's rubbed off on me a bit. I rant, I rave, I whine, I expound. I am actually very nice if you give me half a chance.

I am not going to list my favorite bands, etc, because everyone likes that one obscure band and everyone has read Catcher in the Rye. It's nothing to be proud of.

I like to study theology and philosophy, go on lolzy okcupid dates, escape to the country for a weekend, watch Misfits, take photos and drink wine. I cannot cook or knit, sadly. I am planning to do my MA in Library Science, so I may have to learn how to knit. I've already got the cat. My life is set.

I don't ask anything of you, really. I welcome all kinds. Just comment somewhere before you add me; it's only polite.

been here for a while....

 Yeah, I've been in the add me community for about a year....but my damn friend's page has been bombarded with add me posts since the comm hit LJ spot light. 

so.....I thought I'd pimp myself out since we have high traffic.
