[personal profile] purple_crocus
AGE: 30, soon to be 31

LOCATION: Germany

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I love to read most sorts of books (preferably sci-fi and fantasy) and listen to podcasts (mainly BBC comedy, but also Welcome to Night Vale, the Thrilling Adventure Hour, and My Dad Wrote A Porno). I knit and cross-stitch when I have time and energy. I am a scientist long out of the lab and looking forward to getting back in there. I get inordinately excited by some science things (Epigenetics! Organoids! Developmental biology such as caterpillars turning into butterflies!) but I still can't wrap my head around advanced maths and physics. I'm a feminist and also love to do nail art. I like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, not too interested in newer fandoms even if I enjoy new series and movies and books.

LOOKING FOR: people who post about their life, crafty people, interesting discussions. I've been on LJ since 2004 but feel like I know too many people over there in real life. I'd like to make some cyber friends again :)

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm mainly using my journal right now to get the toxicity out of my brain so it's mainly moaning and anger. We'll see if I get to use it in a better mood or not. My main problems are anxiety and depression and I'm seeing if regular journalling will make a difference.

Hello!

Like many of you, I am here because other internet channels of communication have failed me.

I am also here because I have soft, misty water colored memories of the great LJ heyday of 2003, meeting new people, and founding communities through the miracle of nascient "social networking"

I am from the United States, but in 2016, I moved to Chile to work as an English teacher. A year later, I am still doing that.

I have lots of pop cultural interests, but don't really focus on those, unless something really catches my eye. Mostly I talk about...my day to day life. Well, that is the theory. The truth is, I don't know totally what I am using this for, just yet. I am hoping a purpose and community will spring up spontaneously.

hello im Allie! it's not my real name; i just like a bit of anonymity. i've fallen out of blogging (thanks tumblr) so my writing is a bit rusty.

anyway, i am a 20 something currently working in the "it's not free if it doesn't scan ive heard this joke before 6 million times" industry. i went to university, got depressed, dropped out, went back after 3 years and just finished my first year back. hoping i graduate next year (crossing my fingers i don't bail this time) and earn a better living so i can live by the beach with dogs and pursue my dream of owning a small shop on the side.

i have a couple hobbies: baking, going on really long walks, collecting receipts, and playing bad shows on Netflix in the background. i finally got around to watching gilmore girls and the revival. i am also a fan of brooklyn 99 and superstore. im not... a movie person. the last movie i've loved was whiplash. i'm always open to recs, just never sure when i'll get around to them. my to watch list still includes The Godfather.

i'm not at all a picky eater. i love going on food adventures and trying new things. by new things, i mean by going to a new sushi place. i live in Vancouver; i live in an expensive heaven. my ideal food combo consists of sushi, yam fries and matcha-flavoured sweets.

right now, i am learning to let go of my hoarder like ways byway of Marie Kondo and i am liking where it's going. im learning that if i had to re-start uni i would've majored in sociology or psychology. i love observing people. i like going to coffee shops by busy intersections and people watch... but i digress. i tend to be rambly, hope that's ok...

enough to friend?

I'm sort of trying to find something...fandom friends, or maybe just friends.

I'm looking for ppl over 18. Preferably towards my end of the age spectrum. Lgbt parents. People into femslash and people who aren't overly into m/m pairing in their fandoms. People who get social anxiety. Poets and writers.

Anyone else. I don't mind

I'm 35, bi, genderfluid, married with a kid. I live in Wales, I work in a pharmacy and write fiction and poetry too. 

I've got five cats and four chickens.

I will always love Stargate (SG-1 and SGA) and Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY) I have passing interests in other and currently love Dragon Age, MCU, Steven Universe, Brooklyn 99. I don't write as much fanfic as I used to still have a lot of ideas peculating up there. I miss being part of fandom though I've always felt like I was on the fringes.


I ship f/f and het mostly, and I read that too but I will write anything. Any pairing. I'm either mental or gifted. Not sure which.

I love old films from the beggining to the 70s. Love MST3K. The new series was great. I love crap films, I hate reboots but I will watch them sometimes.


I have a post here that has more about me if you want to check it out.

NAME: Ryu, or Daley outside of DW/roleplay.

AGE: 25, can't wait to be whatever the male equivalent of a Christmas Cake is next year!

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Animals, anime, art, computers/electronics, food, foreign languages and the cultures associated with them (spanish especially), goth garbage, halloween, LGBTQ stuff, monsters, movies and tv shows, music, roleplay, shiba inu puppers (I own one!), video games, writing... Wow, I'm so unique!!!

LOOKING FOR: I suppose I'm just looking for people who share common interests with me at the moment. I've linked my profiles for MyAnimeList, etc., above if anybody wants more specific details on my fandoms of choice. My main fandoms are Aikatsu!, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! though. I'm not into live action stuff as much as I am with cartoons and I'm not big into popular live action canons either, so no SPN or MCU for me.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'd like to think of myself as an open-minded guy, although I don't take other people's bullshit easily. I deal with fibromyalgia, mental illness, insomnia, crippling perfectionism, gender dysphoria, and my body generally being a giant unwanted mess, and I'm trying to live life as drama-free as I can while crossing my fingers that I can get my brain transplanted into a new body and mysteriously find a million dollars in my bank account. Puns, sarcasm, and self-deprecation are my bread and butter for lifting my spirits. Icon related.

The shortest way I can describe myself is a nerdy lesbian hippie. I'm 30 and live in Colorado with my adorable cats. I love crafting. Making things with my hands brings me so much joy. I crochet, make all of my own skin care products, and dabble in anything that looks like it's be fun to make myself. I spend a bunch of time outside birding and exploring nature around me. I've also been known to spend time waving signs at protests. Not necessarily because it's fun, but our current political climate is scary and change happens from the ground up. Other than than, I absorb podcasts and books pretty much like they're both air.

I'm looking for equally geeky people above 25.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: travel, music of many flavors (list below), reading (sci-fi and fantasy, mysteries, well-written non-fiction), tv (often older shows), baseball, basketball, cricket, wine and dessert, fandom, trying new restaurants, theatre. I spend a lot of time writing for work so I don't do much fanfic writing any more.

ANYTHING ELSE?: Work and family doesn't get me down too much. I like my job and am grateful I'm in work that I like doing. I don't talk about work too much, tho. So, not too much drama.

Not a fan of this current administration.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I have schizoaffective disorder and suffer from anxiety. You will probably read about that. I have four cats and a husband and four cats.

Hullo! I'm Coconut Sheryl Coco and I'm very pleased to meet you! Obviously, I'm looking for some new faces to be friends with.

About me... hrm... well, I'm 28 years old, but I act like I'm still in my teens. Currently, I'm still trying to figure out where I fall on the LGBTQ spectrum. I live in the Pacific Northwest in the United States of America. My fancy with things in general tend to change with the moon, but my current favorite color is red and I have a thing for animal print on random objects. I live with mental illness (schizoaffective disorder, anxiety, and PTSD, specifically) and I tend to post about that sometimes quite a bit, but I do my best to not have it overshadow everything else. I also post about my various interests, including fandom-type things, and my day-to-day doings... plus a dash of random thoughts and memes, pointless videos, etc. I guess you could say that my journal is eclectic and eccentric.

Regarding my mental illness, I have a confession that might throw some people off. I am on disability and currently reside in an assisted living facility, where I'm reevaluating my life and goals while learning to better take care of myself (and my mental illnesses, by extension) on my own. I attend a day treatment program 3-4 days a week as a tool to teach me more of those necessary skills. I'm also in an intensive therapy regime as my needs change over time. But enough with the heavy.

Fandom and interest-wise, I am into a great many things. I greatly enjoy anime and manga (borderline obsessed), with Fullmetal Alchemist and Yuri!!! On ICE being in my list of favorites, and those are really the only two fandoms I consider myself "involved in". Currently, I'm working on watching Black Butler and Blue Exorcist and Attack on Titan. My attention-span is next to nothing, you see, so I often engage in multiple things at once and go back and forth. Anyway, I'm also very into reading and I've read all kinds of things, from Harry Potter to Divergent to Ender's Game to trashy romance novels. My favorite author of all time is Anne McCaffrey (RIP) and my favorite book is actually a self-help book (sorta) called You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. I also adore the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K Hamilton, and the Hallows series by Kim Harrison. Going away from books and into film and television... I'm into crime shows like Law & Order: SVU and NCIS, but I also love Big Bang Theory. I'll watch Supernatural if it's on, but I don't actively seek out to watch the series from beginning to end, but maybe I will one day. Film-wise, I have the same policy as when it comes to books and television: I'll give anything a chance and I'll continue with it if I like it. (My favorite film of all time is The Crow. Same with video games. My favorite video game of all time is The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, though I don't play that title as much as I do Skyrim these days. I have a thing for story-rich games, especially RPGs, and I suck at first-person shooters. Music... I lean towards symphonic metal (think Sonata Arctica and Nightwish), but I listen to practically everything, including country.

Outside of the standard interests and hobbies, I consider myself a coffee and tea enthusiast. I enjoy arts and crafts, such a scrapbooking, and I love food wayyy too much.

If I had to describe myself, I'd use the following sentence: I'm complicatedly simple and I change my mind a lot. That's me in a nutshell.

Thanks for reading and drop me a comment if you're interested in striking up a friendship! :D

Hello! I'm Den. :)

I welcome anyone that would like to add me. I'm a liberal eclectic Pagan and an empath; I practice yoga, knit, crochet, bake, love photography, walking/hiking, and dogs. I work in the office of the largest funeral home of my state and a knitting shop 1 day a week. My posts are filled with all of the above. :)

Occasionally I may dip into fannish, which would be Shadowhunters, Hit the Floor, Marvel, Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Firefly always, Prison Break, Walking Dead, NASCAR, Who/Torchwood. I also love reading, history (mostly medieval - mid 18th Century).

I've been blogging since forever. I've had several LiveJournals, back when LiveJournal was "in." I prefer Dreamwidth, because it's lightweight and pink.

I boast a Tumblr with thousands of followers, but none of them talk to me, so I decided to return here for the few that will.

You can find my interests in my profile. I am a super artsy intellectual--a true Brooklyn hipster. Oh, and I'm a 28 year old male who's never been kissed. I stay in my room, avoiding sunlight to prevent aging so I can make up for lost time. One day.

Hi! I'm Matt Aaron. I'm 23 (I turn 24 in July) and live in Texas. I double majored in math and computer science in college, graduated cum laude in 2015, and am now working as a software engineer.

I just joined DW two weeks ago even though I am still on LJ since I’ve been a LJ user for so long (since 2007) and have no intention of leaving - but also want to keep up with friends who've left LJ and make new friends on DW.

I have autism, social anxiety, and sometimes depression (and probably OCD as well), so expect there to be quite a few posts where I needlessly(?) worry about being hated for something - especially recently because seeing posts about people moving to DreamWidth is still making me really worried about being hated for still liking/using/not wanting to ever leave LJ (as you can tell from about half of my entries since April 2017).

There's a part of me that's now telling me "You might as well stop writing now because everyone will hate you for still liking LJ!", but if you're not bothered by the fact that I still like LJ or the fact that I post about needless(?) worrying a lot, here's some more information about me:


I'm an INFP. (At least I think I am... the introvert part is definitely accurate, and other INFPs are a lot like me at least.)

A few things I like:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Video games (Mario, Super Smash Bros., and Kid Icarus especially; I've also recently rediscovered Chip's Challenge - does anyone remember that game?)
- My number-one celebrity crush: Enya! She's so beautiful, and her voice is so soothing...
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Too many newspaper comics and webcomics to name
- Math and computers
- Posting about dreams, though I don't do so as often as I used to

A few things I dislike:
- Political talk, because I don't like a lot of conflict.
- People who judge or hate each other based on a difference in opinion. This is the major reason I don't like politics very much, but it also applies to people who judge each other based on different tastes in (for instance) movies, music, video games, comics, books, operating systems, web browsers, or fonts... or journal sites.

What do I post about to LiveJournal? (er, and DreamWidth?) Pretty much whatever I feel like posting about.

Hopefully my profile will give you a better idea of who I am (and who I was at various times in the past ten years or so) and/or a good laugh. :)


Add me if you're interested! And if you're still on LJ, add me on there too - I haven't had the time to update entries that weren't copied over from LJ correctly, so my entries probably make more sense on LJ than they do on DW... but considering how weird I am, that's not saying much ;)


This entry probably makes no sense whatsoever, doesn't it...
