FRIENDS WANTED

Just thought I would throw this up on here. If you think you and I might click, feel free to respond below.

LJ FRIENDS WANTED:
Well-groomed, fit young man (But I don't mind having more of you gals on my f-list, if you think you'll fall for HOT/CUTE/DROP DEAD GORGEOUS Japanese guys). Must enjoy (or at least have some knowledge and/or tolerance for) tokusatsu and long conversations about silly random things. LJ folks who enjoy watching Super Hero Time on TV Asahi every Saturday and/or don't think Power Rangers are lame, as well as a tolerance for fan-girl who tends to gush over hot guys regularly at times a plus. Guys (and gals) who tend to get jealous if they see someone constantly swooning over some other handsome dude(s) need not apply. In addition, no crazy creepy guys will be tolerated in my LJ. All interested parties please comment below.

ALL POTENTIAL FRIENDS, PLEASE BE SO KIND AS TO SEND ME ICE POP(S) BEFORE ADDING ME VIA COMMENT OR A PM. THANK YOU.
Dan Smoking

Touting Your Wares

 Hellooo.

My name is Lauren. I'm a 19 year-old college student in Worcester, MA. I'm an English Major who is debating going to culinary school upon graduating from here in a few years, but we'll leave that decision for when the time comes.
I've been on LiveJournal since 2006; I spend most of my time on LJ in Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek Communities, as they are two great loves in my nerdy life.
In my spare time I dabble in photography - if you friend me, you'll see the occasional picture update along with my other updates about my humdrum every day routine. 
I'm originally from Fairfield, CT; I have an intense love for all things culinary; I spend a good amount of my warmer days down at a race track or drag strip because cars have become a huge part of my life; I'm obsessed with books; and I spend ridiculous amounts of time playing video games like Minecraft and Team Fortress 2.

My journal is Friends Only because I talk about myself, my boyfriend, my friends, and my family quite often, but if you let me know you're friending me from here and want to make nice, I'll gladly add you.

Cheers!
Jon snow

My lurking days are over!

So… I joined LJ last year because I want to be a writer, and the only way to do that is to actually write stuff down. After six months, I have two journal entries. And no friends. Obviously I am rubbish at this. I would blame it on my crazy all hours job, but really I’m just scared to put myself out there.

 

So… here I am, putting an end to my lurking and actually joining something. I’d like to think it’s never too late for a change. I’m going to actively start posting things, I swear.

 

If you are not too turned off by this point, here’s a little about me:

 

- I live in the south, am in my late twenties, and am married to my college sweetheart.

- I spent most of the past decade living in England and I miss it a lot.

- I have a BA in English Lit and an MA in Writing. Useless in real life but good for LJ.

- I'm completely technologically impaired and am learning how things work as I go along. This is mostly due to the fact that my last computer would now be in the fourth grade if it were alive. And human. So please bear with me. 

- I’m a huge geek. I’ve been trying to hide it for years as I used to be cool, but it just takes too much effort.  I watch way too much television, mostly directed at a much younger audience. I love sci fi, anything weird or funky and am a self confessed schmaltz-aholic. I ship and slash all over the place. Someone needs to stop me before I hurt myself.

- Ideally, I would love to write YA novels (for money). Yes, I still have the delusion that my dreams can come true. It’s what gets me through the day.

 

If you are STILL interested in being my friend, here is a list (in no particular order) of things I like:

 

- Foreign soap operas on youtube, Supernatural, The Velvet Underground, Paris, shopping at Trader Joe’s, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Hayao Miyazaki movies, David Bowie, Back to the Future, Berlin, playing rock band whilst slightly tipsy, The Passage by Justin Cronin, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the 1980’s, parentheses, old movies on AMC, Florence + the Machine, little dogs, the works of Egon Schielle, bargain bins, and the Sunday paper.
