I'm Nina, a 31-yr-young divorcée from northern Germany. I am an active blogger since 2006 and that sometimes feels as if I write my life instead of living it – but at the same time, it helps me to sort through the bad days and remember the good ones. I have made some truly great friends on here, but at the same time some other people have abandoned their journals altogether and there just aren't enough active people with whom I can discuss what I've posted. I haven't done that much shameless self-promotion in forever, so here goes nothing...The Girl:
I have a master's degree in public administration and am between jobs at the moment. In order to boost my options, I am going through advanced training in the area of wage/salary administration and human resource department. I am hard of hearing and as such officially labeled 'disabled'. But hey, labels are for clothes, not for people, so let's not get hung up on them. Generally, I'm the type of girl who dances in the pouring rain.Likes:
I am a hobby photographer and I combine that love with my love for everything outdoorsy. Books are my second passion and I do read A LOT. I love to get recommendations from other people and I often post mine as well, so if you like reading, we'll get along just fine. :D When I don't read, I watch movies and TV – “Lord of the Rings“
and “The Hobbit“
and “Ever after“
are my main loves for the big screen and the small screen is currently reserved for "NCIS: Los Angeles“
and “Falling Skies“
. Despite being hard of hearing, I love music. I am a Country girl to the core and LeAnn Rimes is my favorite artist of all time, followed by the Backstreet Boys and violinist David Garrett. I am also an adventurous travel whore, albeit my current financial situation doesn't allow for much. Dislikes:
I despise alcohol, drugs and shopping. Homophobes and narrow-minded people irritate me and I don't like being the center of attention.What to expect in my LJ:
My LJ is FO. According to my tags, I mostly post my own photographs, along with reviews of books I've read and movies I've watched. I talk about my rather boring life and the obstacles between me and a job, although none too often. You will also come upon some minor fangirl flail over aforementioned celebrities. If I do travel, I will cover that extensively. And I use cuts on almost every entry, so don't worry, I'm not gonna eat up your flist.What I'm looking for:
Basically I am looking for open-minded people who are active in posting – and commenting. After you spend time on an entry, it's nice to know that you're not talking to a brick wall. But here's some caveats. I am a fairly upbeat-person (though, everyone has bad days)
who tries to avoid all kinds of drama (hence, no FB, Twitter or Tumblr)
, so if you only post about how much your life sucks, then please consider not adding me. If you talk incessantly about nothing but gaming, then I'm probably not the person you're looking for. Same if you post tl;dr entries every day. And please, know how to make an entry in more than 142 twitter signs – English is not my primary language and I'm not infallible either, but I like people who don't neglect the general spelling rules. I enjoy hearing about different cultures and different points of view, so people from all walks of life are welcome.
If you think we'd click, then by all means, mosey over to my FO post
and tell me a bit about yourself! While you're over there, my userinfo
can also show you what kind of person I am. In any case, either here or there, please leave me a comment so I know you're around.
