I've returned to LJ recently to a completely dead friends page, so I'd really like to meet some new people to connect with. My name is Sydney, and I'm a 29 year old illustrator from England. I've just finished uni after spending most of my 20s battling chronic illness, and am excited for the next part of my life. I guess I've got a bit of Peter Pan syndrome, I still feel like I'm 18, and like traveling, going to concerts, shopping, and going to Disneyland as often as I can. I have no relationship or kids and aren't interested in either to be honest.
I'm passionate about classic rock music and I enjoy collecting vinyl records and vintage clothing from the '60s and '70s. I also enjoy rooting through junk shops, wandering around nature, people watching in coffee shops, and snapping photos of just about anything. I love traveling and have been to Tokyo, the US, Kenya, and many places around Europe. I enjoy Japanese fashion, tea, Pink Floyd, the colour orange, and anything spooky and atmospheric. I have a kaleidoscopic wardrobe and an imagination to match.
Things I like:
Music; Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, Queen, Donovan, The Killers, David Bowie, Small Faces, King Crimson, Cat Stevens, among many others.
Movies; Studio Ghibli movies, Disney movies, Rosemary's Baby, The Godfather, Yellow Submarine, Dog Day Afternoon, The Tenant, Moulin Rouge!, Reservoir Dogs, Beetlejuice. I like movies a lot.
Authors; Stephen King, Lewis Carroll, Tove Jansson, Shirley Jackson, George Orwell. I'm not a huge reader but generally lean towards horror/fantasy.
TV; Friends, Bates Motel, Hannibal, American Dad.
I mostly write about daily occurrences, reflection, my travels, my artwork, stuff I make, things I'm digging at the moment, and anything that comes to mind. I like posting photographs but am considerate with cuts.
I’d really like to find some people that have things in common with me and I can interact with and become actual friends and not just another number on each others f-lists. If you think we'd get along, please don't hesitate to comment and add me!
