Hello All!  

I'm Ginger. I'm 26 years old originally from the USA.  I am currently living abroad in South Korea teaching ESL.  I am looking for some new friends on livejournal.  I'm not new to LJ, but I wanted to start anew after many years. 

I love to learn about foreign culture. I have been abroad several times to different places and I just feel "myself" when I'm not in the US. Strange to say that. I'm not anti-American, but I just love going to somewhere new and observing how people live around the world. I've been to Central America, Europe, and Asia, hoping someday to go to Africa. 

I'm kind of a geek.  I love World of Warcraft and reading books.  I love Harry Potter, and have an unhealthy love of Alan Rickman.  I also love to read other fantasy novels and participate often in RPGs with my friends. 

I am addicted to TV shows-- Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Law and Order SVU, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Behind Bars, Chopped!, Nurse Jackie, The L Word, The Real L Word, Queer as Folk, Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Celebrity Apprentice, Parking Wars, Dog the Bounty Hunter, among many others. 

Music-- I am pretty much all over the map.  For starters, I love musicals.  I have only seen a few movie-musicals, and generally love them.  I've been too broke to ever go see a musical in real life, though it's a life long dream of mine to see as many of them as I can live onstage someday. I also like Coldplay, John Mayer, Goo Goo Dolls, Third Eye Blind, Dave Matthews Band, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Missy Elliot, Wir Sind Helden, Juli, and many more. Since I can't use Pandora in Korea, I use Jango, and it is really a godsend using it because I get to listen to indie artists as well. ;) 

I like penpals and would like the opportunity to keep lifelong penpals and chitchat with new people from anywhere. Especially from Germany.  I speak German at a medium-high level and would like the opportunity to communicate in German if possible with others. 

I'm pretty easy going.  I am very open-minded and am very liberal. I am not dating right now, having just gotten out of a messy breakup. I am also a lesbian.  I guess I should say that. 

I really don't know what all else to say!! ;/  

Add me!

Hello, people in this community.  My name is Elizabeth.  I'm 21 years old and study German and Linguistics in New York, NY.  I can speak English, German, and some Hebrew.  I live with my boyfriend in a tiny apartment in Manhattan and have one more year til I can graduate, get a job, and move to a less tiny apartment.  I am currently in Dresden, Germany for the next 2.5 weeks, which at the moment is the focus of my journal.  I am quite nerdy and odd and don't really care to hide it, and I am more cautious than the average person.  I enjoy exploring cities, traveling, working, foreign languages, music, video games, watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and sleeping.  My interests include but are not limited to psychology, linguistics, cross-cultural comparison, education, translation, and politics.  I am not sure really what to say about myself, so just have a look at my journal, which is public, if you wanna get a feel for what I'll be writing in it.  I am a pretty open person and am just looking for some journals to read and for some people to read my journal.

So let me know if you wanna friend me.

I have nothing if I don't have you.

Hi, this is my second post here. My name is Valérie, a 27 years old kitchen helper who lives in southwestern Québec. Yes, I am French-Canadian. I am an only child. I have lost my Dad from a heart attack one week before my 4th birthday. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 21. I am the friend of some and the enemy of others. I was born and raised as a Catholic into wonderful home and I am heterosexual. I do respect every orientation. Gryffindor house supporter. If you like more Slytherin, that's okay.

I created this journal a few weeks ago in hope to find new and old friends who share the same interests than me. I have been using LiveJournal since 2005 and I have had several accounts in the past. I hope that this one is going to be my last. *giggle* My wonderful buddy Rubicon_Crossed has converted me into Supernatural during the summer 2011. I became a Castiel!Girl. On September 23rd, the seventh season was aired. Since I do not have The CW on my television, I watch it online. Thank you to Liieut on Justin for his livestram. I am known as Lady_Padalecki on the site.

I became hooked by it pretty quickly. Everything became clear by the following week. When I saw Sam Winchester agonizing in the ambulance, I fell so much sympathy for him. As much as I enjoy everyone on the show, I have fallen very hard for Jared Padalecki. I cannot explain it. He is just perfect with his beautiful eyes and flawless hair. He has helped me when I have bad and good times as well. When I watch anything with him, I smile again. I will always be grateful to him because of that.

I have never had the chance to meet him yet. One of my biggest dreams to go to a Supernatural convention one day. And as for today, nothing is certain but I might go to Vancouver next year (2013). I have asked my Mom if she would not mind to help me at getting a ticket. She agreed if I am saving money, too. Of course she cannot save for everything. So I hope with all my heart that I am going to be able to save all the money necessary for it and make it. I keep my fingers crossed until the very end.

I have lots of interests but those listed in my profile are my main ones. I wish we could be allowed to have more than 150. I do have the right to add new or remove old interests. I do not bite so if you are curious to know more about me, do not hesitate and add me as a friend. I will most likely add you back... unless we do not share any common things. I will be a friends only journal and you will find private thoughts about what happens in my life. You will also find squee ramblings.

I must say that I tend to obsess over the couple of Jared Padalecki and Genevieve Cortese. They are soulmates since the beginning. They got married in front of God on 27 February 2010. Their first child, Thomas Colton Padalecki, was born on 19 March 2012. They vowed to always be there for each other in health and disease, in wealth and poverty, for better and for worse. They are my favourite OTP. You have no choice. You must deal with it. I will respect your ship, if you respect mine. Thank you for your understanding. I appreciate it. I also like and respect another couple: Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris. I still have a thing for Misha Collins.
