I usually don't like doing things like this too often, but I've got the LJ bug again after being on and off for around 12 years, and want to make some new friends to help share some things with again.
My name is Gen, (short for Genevieve...yeah) and I'm 25 going on 35. I live in the UK, in a city called Stoke-On-Trent (you may have heard of it!). I've been here for about two years now and live with my boyfriend of four years, his brother (not for much longer may I add) and my year old kitty cat, Theo.
I enjoy music, a lot. I throughout my musical career, I've picked up Piano, Clarinet, Saxophone, guitar, Bass, and ukelele. I may even post videos of me playing once in a while.
I can be very angsty at times, and in all honestly, older posts are things about a whole lot of nothing. I love being creative too. Sadly I don't have much time to do as much creativeness as I used to as I have a pretty hectic job, but I want to encourage myself to do get back into my graphic design, photography, music and writing again.
I enjoy baking and cooking as well. I read a lot, and every now and again have a trashy weekend of watching Desperate Housewives.
I think I'm a bit of a nerd too. I play a lot of video games, mostly World of Warcraft, but dabble in many other games (my Steam account is regularly used to it's max, playing lots of Indie games and old school games from back in the day (Worms: Armageddon, anyone?)
I'm open to friends from all walks of life. I think I'm a very diverse individual, and enjoy hearing about different cultures, different points of view; I love to travel and to visit as many different countries and experience as many different cultures is my ultimate dream.
I like setting myself personal goals, and talking about how I get to complete those goals. I've taken part in a couple of 101/1001 (101 goals to complete in 1001 days) and have documented those in the past. I haven't done one for a while so I may get involved in one again (once I've written a list) so would love to keep track via LJ with this little life task again.
Sorry, I didn't realise how much of a ramble this is. If you think you could put up with me (because sometimes even I can't put up with myself!) then feel free to add me. I will add you back and hopefully we can be friends :)( Collapse )
