happy autumn

Hi everyone, so I've returned to this community once again. I have been on LJ since the early 2000s, however, I've taken some breaks (some long, some short). I miss the times when LJ was active and thriving. I had made wonderful friends, and loved to read their deep and introspective posts about their daily lives. Sadly, they are no longer active, but I still can't bring myself to remove them from my friends' list in hopes that they will return someday. So, I am here hoping to make new connections.

About me, I'm a 35 year old female named Margaret. I am recently married, with no kids, but I have two cats called Malta and Sabre. We live in Boston, MA, and moved here from Seattle in Spring. I love to travel and I have visited and lived in a multitude of places.

I love to read- mostly contemporary fiction and fantasy. I just finished the Fitz and the Fool trilogy, so I'm still in mourning. I love to draw, paint, and I am currently attempting clay figurines. I exercise, and prefer martial arts, but I haven't done anything since covid ended my newly begun judo training. Though, I have also trained shaolin kung fu before. I love films and remember when netflix used to be good for that.. I just subscribed to the Criterion Channel, and recently watched Tampopo.

Anyway, my LJ posts tend to be about my daily life, as well as interests, speculations and introspections. I consider myself kind, loyal and supportive. I like to read friends' entries and try to comment often.

And to be frank, I'm not interested in reading journals dedicated to politics, gender identity, nor mental disorders.
