(no subject)

Hi there. My name's Nicole and I'm 22 years old. I live in New York and I've recently graduated from college. My main hobbies are reading, tv, movies, and dancing. My love for all things entertainment knows no bounds, and I tend to get a little obsessive and nerdy about it. My favorite shows and such are listed on my profile. Other things I like include, but are not limited to: food, traveling, Europe, feminist criticism, the Yankees, the beach, tea, literary criticism, Netflix, iced lattes, and animals. I'm very shy and reserved, but I get more comfortable when I get to know someone. I try to appreciate the little things and not to take anything too seriously.

I'm looking for friends who have something interesting to say. I would also appreciate if we had some things in common, so check out my profile. If you'd like to add me, leave a comment here or on my journal and I will add you back.

Hullo :)

So Im looking for some new friends, its been a while since Ive been here and while I have many friends at this present time, only 60% are regular journallers.. the other 40% I kept on my list because in some way their writings, their stories, poetry, prose, life stories - stay with me.. resonate in many ways.. and Im just one of those particular people that if we connect on levels I want to stay in contact even if you would never journal again.. or once - twice a year..

Im full of nostalgia and memories, writing, prose, life stories, love to share photos, review movies, tv and books.. this is all on my journal (which is friends only).. a regular mix mash of anything that grabs my fancy.

So what of me?

Im from NZ, turning 34 this year and have been in LJ for shy of a decade now.. im a regular poster and commentor - when something is relevant then I will step up and leave you a comment, and I would hope you would feel you could do the same likewise.. that's me in my icon.. I don't have any set criteria for who I read .. life stories, photographers, bakers, writers, poets, the mixture is wonderful in my books.. and serves to enrich my journal experience.

Other than that... a few basic interests to whet the appetites-

Writing, Cooking, Baking, Photography, Cats, Music, Reading, Beach, Friends, Family, True Blood, Game of Thrones, TS Eliot - all other interests and more information is on my journal profile.

I do hope to meet new people in this place.

Woo new friends!

Hello all! I've noticed recently that my flist is a bit bare so I thought this might be the perfect time to make some new friends whom I might like to get to know better.

I am 21 (22 in August!) and I am a born and bred Oregonian (Not from Portland. Yes it rains a lot.). I am single and I consider myself an asexual biromantic. My 14 year old cat and I are currently living with my older sister and her husband. I recently stopped going to school as I do not know what I want to do with myself yet and I find it unwise to attend college just for the sake of going. I am hoping to return with a firm plan in mind within the next few years.

My journal is a pretty decent mix of RL posts and fandom squee. I do suffer from severe ADHD, anxiety, and depression, so I do talk about my struggles with those once in a while. I also talk about life with my bipolar sister (which sucks) and other random bits of trivial stuff that I feel like posting about. I also have a lot of opinions on some topics such as feminism and gay rights so those might crop up from time-to-time. As for fandoms, right now I am somewhat active in the Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, Vampire Diaries, Downton Abbey, and Pretty Little Liars fandoms. Other shows I love are Veronica Mars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, and Roseanne. I have been making attempts to rekindle my love of writing. The going is rough but I think I will make it soon enough.

Besides writing, my other hobbies include reading, photography, researching various topics of interest, and I might dabble here-and-there in spiritualism but not enough to consider myself a pagan or mystic. Otherwise my viewpoints are pretty atheistic. I also love reviewing books/movies/shows I've seen and loved (or seen and wish I hadn't).

My journal is non-discriminatory towards anyone of any gender, creed, orientation, or race. I hope to meet all kinds of people, really. You can never have too much variety!

Add me?

My friends list has been looking a little sparse lately, so I'd love to add some new people. I've been on LJ for about five years now. My entries are usually about daily life. Sometimes I'm insightful, sometimes now. My last two entries, to give you an example, were about my weekend, my job search, and feminist ranting.

A little about me...
I love reading. I am always reading a book and over the summer I get through even more books.
I am a writer and currently trying to power through edits/re-writes of my NaNoWriMo from last year.
I am a graduate student in library science. I love the program but am constantly being rejected for jobs, so that job search is my main occupation this summer.
I have terrible wander-lust. I have no plans to stay in the area once I graduate. I would love to go abroad but have no idea if that will be possible. I studied abroad in England 3 years ago and fell in love with it.
My favorite shows are Sherlock (BBC), Doctor Who, and Skins. I got hooked on British tv when I studied abroad and now prefer it to American shows!
Feminism is very important to me. I minored in Women's Studies in undergrad and now look at everything with a feminist critical lens. Please don't be scared off, though. :3

The only thing I won't stand in an LJ friend is someone who often posts conservative political opinions.

You can reply here or at my friends only post in my journal. Looking forward to meeting some new friends!
